The pain of losing love

Even The Roses Are Crying

by Brett Matthew West

Even The Roses Are Crying

I took your love for granted
And you along the way
What I'd give if we could
Go back to yesterday

I never heard you leaving
Though you said goodbye to me
Now, I'm the one who's lonely
And I don't want to be

Over on the table
For all the world to see
This 8 X 10 between us
is all that's left of you and me

I can hang it in the hallway
Or burn the roadhouse down
I can show it to a stranger
And wonder why love can't be found

But, when I look into the mirror
I see the reason that you're gone
Your memory surrounds me
And I cry all night long

It's a sad day here in Paradise
The sun refused to shine
It wasn't all that long ago
You left my love behind

It may be made of silver
And it may be made of gold
Nothing that I know of is worse
Than watching good love turn cold

Now, I can't fight this feeling
You're always on my mind
Love that lasts forever
Is so hard to find

You told me not to call you
Help me to understand
I need you here beside me
What's this phone doing in my hand

The roses in the back yard
Turn away in shame
Every time they hear me
Calling out your name

I can't reach out and touch them
And they won't let me hold them tight
Nothing I can ever do
Will ever make things right

It breaks my heart but still I know
I gotta keep on trying
Cause even the roses are crying
Yes, even the roses are crying
