    Lyrics

    He still sends her roses on the 4th of July
    They're always white roses and she never asks why
    She still doesn't know where he goes Thursday nights
    But his wedding band rests on their bedside that night

    He was a soldier in the Vietnam War
    He lost half his right leg whilst daydreaming of her
    She lit a candle each holy hour he was gone
    'You Were On My Mind' was their favorite song

    Love is a mystery from birth till we die
    It's cross words of a morning by evening entwined
    It's all that we dream of, sometimes it's not right
    Love is white roses, and you never ask why

    He's the hands of a draftsman, he's built a good life
    She works for a season during IRS time
    Two children they've had though their boy has now died
    When they wake of each morning, he's still on their minds

    Their friends would all tell you, they're like day and night
    Their daughter's an actress, she's strong and she's bright
    He meets with his pals from the war Thursday nights
    She still treasures those roses every 4th of July

    Love is a mystery from birth till we die
    It's cross words of a morning by evening entwined
    It's all that we dream of, sometimes it's not right
    Love is white roses, and you never ask why

    Love is white roses every 4th of July
