Cool Hand Luke – Nobody Hugs A Rose lyrics

She cannot see the ocean.
For the trees that block the way.
She cannot see forever 'cause,
She can't see past today.
She's driving home so empty.
From another one night stand.
With a guy who doesnt't care,
But just wants to feel like a man.
If only falling in love was as easy making it.

Nobody hugs a rose (3x)
She's all alone 'cause nobody hugs a rose.

She has no ring to speak of.
Save the one her daddy left.
He stepped out of her life,
Leaving some jewelry on a shelf.
Seems like every man she loves ends up walking away.

Nobdy hugs a rose (3x)
She's all alone 'cause nobody hugs rose.

There's never been a prettier soul,
No, there's never been a lovelier rose.
But she can never wipe away all her tears.
She cries herself to sleep and
Wakes up to the same old fears.
She only needs someone to hold to her right now.
A man who would wear those thorns like a crown.

She steps into the bedroom,
And falls onto the floor.
She cries out to her savior
That she just can't take no more.
Jesus says "Girl I've been waiting,
For this very day.
When I could pick you up and strip those dirty thorns away."
Nevermore will she think in her old futile ways,

Nobody hugs a rose (3x)
She's not alone, 'cause somebody loved a rose.
