Pretty much been alone now, for almost five years
I could always find a way, to hide these bitter tears
And still I'm a waiting and wishing some how
I wish I knew then what I know now...
Better than lonely, I've been there before.
Chorus:Its no bed of roses, it ain't no crown of thorns
Gonna play again now, and beat the odds above
And still I'm a waiting, and wishing somehow
Gotta bad reputation, for playing with love
I wish I knew then, what I know now...
Or have you fallen out of love?
Bridge:Are tired of being alone?
Do you care enough about yourself?
I have wove your crown of thorns
