Winter's roses never smell sweet.”

— Chris Colby

This Time

WRITTEN BY: CHRIS COLBY

 

I’m a lonely man in this lowly crowd

Faceless people talk so loud

I could hear you if they’d just leave

 

You made the scene. I feel their stares.

Your drink’s on me, your point was made

I can’t blame them for what they see

 

Now that you’ve lashed out all my hopes

And all my fears rest in you

Everybody seems to think it’s a joke but I’ll say to you

It’s just the truth to you. It’s one thing that I owe to you

If you ever go away I swear I’m not gonna wait this time

No, I won't wait this time

 

Race from the highway, turn on your street

Winter’s silence crushed beneath my feet

Winter’s roses never smell sweet

 

Now that you lost out on my hope

And all my fears arrest in you

Everybody seems to think it’s a joke but I’ll say to you

I will give the truth to you. It’s one thing that I owe to you

But if you ever go away I swear I’m not gonna wait this time

No, I won't wait this time

 

Now I’m at your door, and I know you’re there

Do you have the guts now to meet my stare

You can leave and I won’t care

 

Now that you lashed out all my hope

And all my fears arrest in you

Everybody seems to think it’s a joke but I’ll say to you

It’s just the truth to you. It’s one thing that I owe to you

If you ever go away I swear I’m not gonna wait this time

No, I won't wait this time

 

Look what you did to my heart.
