    Lyrics

    Can hardly bear the sight of lipstick on the cigarettes there in the ashtray
    Lyin' cold the way you left 'em
    But at least your lips caressed them while you packed
    Or the lip-print on a half-filled cup of coffee that you poured and didn't drink
    But at least you thought you wanted it
    That's so much more than I can say for me

    What a good year for the roses
    Many blooms still linger there
    The lawn could stand another mowin'
    Funny I don't even care
    As you turn to walk away
    As the door behind you closes
    The only thing I have to say
    It's been a good year for the roses

    After three full years of marriage
    It's the first time that you haven't made the bed
    I guess the reason we're not talkin'
    There's so little left to say we haven't said
    While a million thoughts go racin' through my mind
    I find I haven't said a word
    From the bedroom the familiar sound of one baby's cryin' goes unheard

    What a good year for the roses
    Many blooms still linger there
    The lawn could stand another mowin'
    Funny I don't even care
    As you turn to walk away
    As the door behind you closes
    The only thing I have to say
