"Coming Up Roses" as written by Toni Halliday and Dean Garcia....
Morning comes and you're so lonely
And you feel like you're the only one alive
Since she left you blame yourself
For all the things she never felt

How could you be untrue to yourself
When nobody is watching
Your life isn't over the clock is still tocking
One day you will wake up and you'll

Be able to forget the sadness
Get into the gladness
Of love and it's way and you will not fight it
While everyone dozes, you're coming up roses

Drowning in a sea of sorrow
She won't be here for tomorrow's lullaby
'Round and 'round and 'round she goes
And where she stops nobody knows

But God above
It's starting to rain and you're running
For cover like she ran to the arms of another
One day you will wake up and you'll

Be able to forget the sadness
Get into the gladness
Of love and it's way and you will not fight it
While everyone dozes, you're coming up roses

You will learn to try again
When you get your second wind
How long is the road paved with good intentions
Forever waiting divine intervention

Of love and it's way and you will not fight it
While everyone dozes, you're coming up roses

    General Commenti love this song and am so surprised there aren't any comments!

    i think this boils down to the fact that, although he is hurt by love (the girl leaves him for another), that ultimately, because of this pain, he will be able to understand love more fully and in turn be able to love more truly and more deeply.
