You take the room by force and we're just your hostages
If you weren't so self absorbed, you'd catch my unhealthy stares
There's no need for words love
We're all of the same mind here
We're all one big bleeding heart, dear
So don't mop the floor with me yet

'Cause if you only knew
The time I’ve spent waiting for you
To what great lengths I've chased after you
But now roses are black 'cause my hate has grown as strong
As the love I've tried to bury for so long
And by design I've been turning cold and blue
Drowned myself like I drowned my hopes for you
Little Girl Blue

They say I'm a lucky guy 'cause I'm the one that caught your eye
But if I weren't drunk every night, I'd see the holes in your alibis
There's no need for words love
We're all of the same mind here
We're all one big bleeding heart, dear
So don't flip the coin on me yet

'Cause if you only knew
The time I've spent waiting for you
To what great lengths I've chased after you
But now roses are black 'cause my hate has grown as strong
As the love I've tried to garret for so long
And by design I've been turning cold and blue
Drowned myself like I drowned my hopes for you
Little Girl Blue

Roses are black
Roses are black
Roses are black
Roses are black
Little Girl Blue
