We both lie silently still
In the dead of the night
Although we both lie close together
We feel miles apart inside

Was it something I said or something I did
Did my words not come out right
Though I tried not to hurt you
Though I tried
But I guess that's why they say

Every rose has it's thorn
Just like every night has it's dawn
Just like every cowboy sings his sad, sad song
Every rose has it's thorn

Yeah it does

I listen to our favorite song
Playing on the radio
Hear the DJ say love's a game of easy come and
Easy go
But I wonder does he know
Has he ever felt like this
And I know that you'd be here right now
If I could have let you know somehow
I guess

Every rose has it's thorn
Just like every night has it's dawn
Just like every cowboy sings his sad, sad song
Every rose has it's thorn

Though it's been a while now
I can still feel so much pain
Like a knife that cuts you the wound heals
But the scar, that scar remains

Solo

I know I could have saved a love that night
If I'd known what to say
Instead of makin' love
We both made our separate ways

But now I hear you found somebody new
And that I never meant that much to you
To hear that tears me up inside
And to see you cuts me like a knife
I guess

Every rose has it's thorn
Just like every night has it's dawn
Just like every cowboy sings his sad, sad song
Every rose has it's thorn

    I think that this song has alot of meaning. First, i think it is about being in a relationship with someone, but feeling alone. Then, i think its about love. Love is beautiful, just like a rose. But roses aren't perfect; they have thorns. Thorns hurt. Just like love can hurt sometimes. It doesn't mean that it isn't beautiful. And alot of people give up their hope of love, when they get the "thorn" or they get hurt. This song is about keeping your hope that love is beautiful, even if sometimes you get poked by the thorns.
