Anita Bryant – Paper Roses lyrics
I realize the ways 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

[Chorus:]
Paper roses, paper roses
Oh, how real those roses seemed to be
But they're only imitation
Like your imitation love for me

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

[Repeat chorus]
