The Rose

A lifetime comes and goes
And as my friend, the rose, said only yesterday
"This morning I was born
And baptised in the dawn
I flowered in the dew
And life was fresh and new
The sun shone through the cold
And through the day I grew
By night-time I was old"

"At least there's never been
No, you have never seen
A rose more bright and gay"

A lifetime comes and goes
And as my friend, the rose, said only yesterday
"The Good Lord smiled on me
So why then should it be?
I feel I'm falling now
Oh yes, I'm falling now
My heart no one can save
My head begins to bow
My feet are in the grave"

The rose God smiled upon
Tomorrow will be gone
Forever gone away

A lifetime comes and goes
And so my friend, the rose
Was dead at break of day
The moon is shining bright
And in my dreams tonight
Beneath the starlit sky
My friend the rose goes by
Has seen my dreams I, see
A soul that wouldn't die
Still watching over me

Whatever fortune brings
I'll hope for better things
Or life will just be grey

A lifetime comes and goes
That's what my friend, the rose
Said only yesterday
