A ROSE IS NOTHING
[E. Maguire]
______________________________

A rose is nothing without its thorn
And there’s no calm like it in the eye of a storm
And love is nothing when you lie
I can see those secrets in your eyes

Under this willow tree
There’s no love for me yeah yeah

You can take me home tonight
But that won’t mean a thing
Cos if she’s on her own tonight
Well I know what you’re thinking
But don't you see

That life is nothing but an endless stream
Of strange illusions, a waking dream
And hope is nothing without its fears
You could fill up an ocean with all these tears

But if you break my heart, yeah yeah
I won’t let it show, no, no, no
No matter where you are, yeah yeah
I want you to know

Chorus

Does it feel so right, are her arms so tight
Is that where you slept last night
You swear that it's over
Does she know my name

A heart is nothing without its beat
You can ride wild horses in your sleep
And fire is nothing without its flame
You can have your reasons but don’t explain


But if you break my heart, yeah yeah
I won’t let it show, no, no, no
No matter where you are, yeah yeah
I want you to know


Chorus
