Roses Are Red

by Maribelle

Everyday I'd see him
As he browsed around my store
He would come to buy my flowers
He would notice nothing more
How often I sat dreaming
Of the day he'd buy a rose
Place it in my hair
And kiss my lips and hold me close

Chorus:
If roses are red and violets are blue
Why can't you see I'm in love with you
If I can feel love as much as I do
Then why aren't you feeling my love for you

I waited while he looked around
It seemed to be for hours
To tell him all the love
That grew along with all the flowers
As I wrapped them up I envied
The girl he'd give them to
He handed them right back to me
And said these are for you

Chorus (1x)

If roses are red and violets are blue
Why can't you feel what I want you too
The love I can give both tender and true
Flowers are all I can give to you

As I wrapped them up I envied
The girl he'd give them to
He handed them right back to me
And said these are for you

Chorus (3x)
