This one's for the rose
Beaten by the rain you fall apart
Held out for a boy
Colors greater than the sum of all your parts
Is that you?
If so, what will you blossom into?
When you're only pretending you can grow
Flashing smiles
Your roots go underground and spread for miles
In the dark
Unexposed
Yeah, this one's for the rose

The night, it has a million eyes
They followed me, to my surprise they closed
And opened up for you
May you go before your colors learn to fade
Forever new
To wonder what someday you'd one day blossom into
Yeah, gone but something I would only know
In fading lights
And I was just your distant star or moon
To far away
Where nothing grows
Yeah, this one's for the rose

    General CommentA girl who keeps to herself, waiting for the perfect boy."This one's for the rose Beaten by the rain you fall apart Held out for a boy " Not sure who she is yet, assuming something great. "Is that you?
    If so, what will you blossom into? When you're only pretending you can grow Flashing smiles "
