you gave me a rose by Chelsea Zimmann

you gave me a rose
the thorns punctured my heart

you gave me a kiss
and it tore me apart

but when i give you things
you take and take and take

i love you the way you are
yet, when can i get a break?

you give me so little
when all i want is you

this love is hurting me
but what more can i do?

you need me
i need you

this is all that is true

you gave me a rose

the heavenly scent drifted into my nose

but the thorns were too sharp

that’s love,

i suppose.
