In the roses
In the spring
I remember
There was a time
I wasn’t afraid of anything
But with the lilacs
And the rain
One day you went away
I remember
I forgot everything
[Chorus:]
My mother’s always trying to tell me
How to be grateful how to believe
My father’s always trying to say
Baby you’re beautiful in every way
My lover’s always got me in his arms
Trying to protect me keep me from harm
So why do I always have to be
My worst my own worst enemy
In the shadows in the grays
In the lonely
There is a place
Where we can all hide away
But in the windows of the soul
There is nowhere we can go
If we keep running
Running from our destiny
[Chorus:]
My mother’s always trying to tell me
How to be grateful how to believe
My father’s always trying to say
Baby you’re beautiful in every way
My lover’s always got me in his arms
Trying to protect me keep me from harm
So why do I always have to be
My worst my own worst enemy
You say I walk on water
You say I walk on the moon
But it’s never enough
(no it’s never enough no it’s never enough)
You say I’m only human
It’s all in my head
But it’s never enough
(no it’s never enough no it’s never enough)
One day I’ll find
My alibi...
[Chorus:]
My mother’s always trying to tell me
How to be grateful how to believe
My father’s always trying to say
Baby you’re beautiful in every way
My lover’s always got me in his arms
Trying to protect me keep me from harm
So why do I always have to be
My worst my own worst enemy
