    "Roses" Lyrics

    Janis Ian

    She never had too much of money
    Friendly strangers were all she knew
    Nobody ever came to call but you
    I would not say she isn't happy
    Though the eyes of a fool
    Will make her blue
    Nobody's ever seen the tears
    It's true
    I guess nobody wanted to

    We'll have a celebration
    Ice cream and candy cakes

    She's very young to go
    So far away
    And then there'll be the papers
    In black and white
    To say we're through
    Nobody every loved me
    Quite like you
    I guess nobody wanted to

    And there'll be roses
    In the springtime still
    I guess there will
    I wish her roses and song
    And she'll be older
    As years go by,
    And how they fly
    Will she be lonely
    Without me along?

    She doesn't make friends easily
    She's only known a few
    The incidental stranger
    Passing through
    On Sundays and holidays
    I'll take her far away
    We never tried to save
    The love we knew
    I guess nobody wanted to
