Come, let me hold you for a while
All you have to do is smile
& I'm yours again
I may not like some things you do
But they're all a part of you
& you're my best friend

CHORUS:
I don't mind the cold when I have a fire to warm me
I don't mind the rain 'cause it makes the flowers grow
I can take the bad times when you wrap your love around me
I don't mind the thorns when you're the rose

Stay, we can work the whole thing out
That's what love's about
& I understand
You didn't mean the things you said
They're so easy to forget
When you take my hand

(chorus)

If it was anybody else, I would be gone
But you're so beautiful to me, oh that I keep on holding on

(chorus, then repeat its last line)

    I dunno... I mean... What does love have to do with horticulture? And does it really help the nice lovely feelings if we're thinking suddenly of thorns? Thorns? What the heck?! If i wanted to think about thorns, i'd go back to my last residence-- they had these goat-heads, which are thorns that they say look like goat heads. Funny, butt never did i ever see a goathead like that--ever@@!! But anyways, what does love have to do with that? And what was i talking about before the goatheads?
