Joe – Rose In A Concrete World lyrics

Uh uh huh uh huh uh huh uh huh yeah
(This one goes out)
(To all the lost loved ones)
(That's right)
No ooohh no no
(Throw your hands in the air)
No oh oh oh oh oh

We were like soldiers shoulder to shoulder
Back to back against the wall
Always there to catch me if I would fall
If I was in trouble when you was in trouble
Never gave a damn if I was wrong or right
Never backed down if we had a fight

Now you've gone away
Always thought that you'd be here to stay
See you on the other side
We will ride again

We would ride like the wind
On the stairways of sin
I can't believe all the wrong would turn
Now that you're gone, how can I go on?
You were a rose in a concrete world

No, no no no
No no no no no no no

Ghetto to ghetto
It's the meadow to meadow
Tryin' to survive day to day
Livin' crazy was the only way
You were my strength when I was weak
Young and gifted, you were unique
You were far too good for this world, oh

Bridge & Chorus Twice

(Break it down)
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh no no no no no
No no no no
La la la la la

Bridge & Chorus

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh no no no no no
No no no no
La la la la la
La la la da da da, oh
La la la da da da, oh
La la la da da da, oh
No no no no no no no no
