She was brought into this world
Out of a beautiful mistake
When her mom was just a girl,
And her daddy didn't stay.

She was working at age nine
At the flower shop in town.
Working hard just to survive,
'Cause life was throwing her around.

In the rose garden,
Where the rain is fallin'
And the thorns are sharpin'
Rose garden, yeah.
Rose garden.

She was young but not naive...
Always wise beyond her years,
Hoping that no one would see
Every time she dried her tears.

In the rose garden,
Where the rain is falling.
And the thorns are sharpin'
Rose garden, yeah.

Don't let those petals fall...
Don't let them fall on you...
Don't let those petals fall.
Don't let them fall on you...
Yeah, yeah, yeah!


Rose garden,
Where the rain is falling.
And the thorns are sharpin'
Rose garden, yeah.
In the rose garden!
Yeah, yeah, yeah!

    I believe this song is about a girl who's having so much trouble in life. And maybe her mom was poor so, she had to work at the flower shop just to have some food on the table. She was living in this rose garden, where the thorns are sharpened (having so much trouble and she's always hurt) and where the rain is falling (where the weight of life is falling on her). She was mature and everytime she was hurt, she didnt cry so people can see how strong she is.

    -Very mature song for Nick :) I like it!

    This is the first time i really pay attention to the lyrics of this song, and the way i see it, it's brilliant. It's a about a girl who was born because of an accident her mom made very young and the dad left them. So she started working since she was 9, the rose garden is figurative language for the world, it is beautiful but it has some thorns, some bad people who'll aways try to throw petals (give you problems) at you. It doesn't matter the conditions in which you live, never let nobody bring you down.

    This is basically about selena gomez; her mother brought her into this world when she was still young. Selena worked at a young age to survive. Her mom and dad divorced. She doesn't cry in front of people, only in front of the people she loves. Selena once heard this song and started to cry. Peace out g's.
