Someone just yesterday morning
Walked up to me and they said
Sing me a song about roses
And I’ll be your friend for life.

So I softly whispered, my darling
Close your eyes for awhile
Nobody loves of a lover
Til they feel the thorns of a rose.

High, high Lily,
Lily love me tonight
Take the love from me Lily,
And love me tonight
Love me tonight

Good times they last for a moment
The bad seem to stay quite awhile
But loving my life with a lady
And living my love for her
