If your heart was a rose I left it to wither and die, Blowing in the wind, Burning under the sky. And if my garden overgrown, Were the only thing there 'Cause you were to go, It’d only be fair. Smell it, breath it, feel it, need it, Know it, love it, mean it I’m feeling my way but I get it wrong It's a walk in the park only for some Got my head to the ground till I get home Watch me cos I go round in circles Though your petals have fallen In my bleak december cold, Still you persist, With beauty untold. Pure as grace in full bloom, Without help it still grows; And you hunger for my love, I can’t believe I’ve got your rose

Allow me to set the scene for how things went down It was a dirty little rock dive over in camden town I dip into the room and feel diluted by every guy Beefing up oversized pie in the sky Still, I’m propping up the bar trying to look cool But really she’s the iceberg and I’m a titanic fool Heaven forbid that we should actually speak It’d be easier to part the red sea Than to cross over to her for me Strawberry Blonde, not your average girl She lives on the road playing her rock and roll She listens to Frank Zappa and all the best shred I’ve got Strawberry blonde in my head She’s alone at the bar, after her show ends For every wincing moment I could shrink or make amends Rummaging round inside trying to rouse an advance But clearly I am flying by the seat of my pants Seems like everyone else would just know what to say When small talk is not my forte And I can only muster cliché Strawberry Blonde, not your average girl She’ll make you want to stray out of your ordinary world She’ll hook you in as I have been, I’m seeing red I’ve got Strawberry blonde in my head Strawberry blonde is my kind of girl But I don’t even think that she noticed me at all I could leave now, and she won’t even know

When did you mislay the cause That took you there first of all? Maybe the impulse that you need Is not to flee, but let it be Good love is hard to find when you won’t rest your mind Greener grass is all you’ll find when you won’t rest your mind You could run away, and she’ll become no more than your shadow, Oh, but what if your wrong, you could free yourselves tonight The world is ever full of sham And trickery, don’t listen in But if you’ve let it get to you Don’t be fearful to uncover something true Good love is hard to find when you won’t rest your mind All of her is beautiful but you won’t rest your mind I don’t want to run anymore

There's nothing in the world that can prepare you for this Far from the expectations of a kiss Like the blink of an eye, we have to say goodbye Now it's over, it's over. Lets dance Get lost And if I had the chance I'd do it all again Numbering the days isn't good for your heart And thinking anything else is proving quite an art 'Cause you feel like home, the only place I can go Now it's over, it's over. An ember only glows a few beautiful moments But i'll keep the fires burning for you I've been reluctant to be involved at all But tumble me down the rapids for more
