I realize the way your eyes deceived me
With tender looks that I mistook for love;
So take away the flowers that you gave me
And send the kind that you remind me of.

Your pretty lips look warm and so appealing

They seem to have the sweetness of a rose;
But when you give a kiss there is no feeling

It's just a stiff and artificial pose.

I thought that you would be a perfect lover

You seemed so full of sweetness at the start;
But like a big red rose that's made of paper

There isn't any sweetness in your heart.

Paper Roses
Paper Roses

Oh how real those roses seem to be!
But they're only imitation
Like your imitation lover for me.
