"Roses" as written by Walter Afanasieff and Darren Hayes....
What if I told you that your time was up,
That as every second passes there's a moment gone,
In 23 hours the sun is gonna set forever,
Would you hug a little tighter,
Would you let go first,
Would you focus on love then forget the hurt,
Live in the moment or wish your life away,
How would you spend you last night on Earth,
Would you kiss your enemies,
Say sorry first,
Would you take enough time to say your last goodbye,
All the little battles that you never won,
All the music and the opera never sung,
Emotions that were silent all these years,

You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
You can't smell the roses,
No it's not a rehearsal,
You only get one life so make it right,
You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
So live every moment like this is the last night on Earth,
Because this is the last night on Earth,

What if I told you that I had regrets,
I would trade in all my happiness for one last kiss,
For a minute or two lying by your side,
What I chose a road no-body walked,
If I arted all my promises with empty talk,
If I knew back then the things that I know now,
I would tell you that I love you then we'd all get low
There are Peaks and there are Valley's,
You've got to know,
Second chance,
You've really comes around

You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
You can't smell the roses,
No it's not a rehearsal,
You only get one life so make it right,
You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
So live every moment like this is the last night on Earth,
cuz this is the last night on Earth,

If I could have my time again,
I would make sure,
You knew just how I felt,
cuz I went away for much too long,
And the seasons change,
Without me,

You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
You can't smell the roses,
No it's not a rehearsal,
You only get one life so make it right,
You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
So live every moment like this is the last night on Earth,
cuz this is the last night on Earth,
cuz this is the last night on Earth.
