Don't Buy Me Roses
writer: Marc J. Kuchner

The last few years we've grown together
Like two stubborn twisted vines
But lately our passion's lost its power
Like flowers sent too many times
Now it's time to be honest with each other
I need to know what's really on your mind

So don't buy me roses if you don't love me
When honesty is what I need
I won't fall for symbols of passion
Don't buy me roses, just talk to me

Baby, you know I've been faithful
I never once glanced at the door
I wouldn't just leave if you told me
There's something new you're aching for
But I'm watching you go through the motions
When you know that we both deserve more

So don't buy me roses if you don't love me
When honesty is what I need
I won't settle for symbols of passion
Don't buy me roses, just talk to me

Share with me the worries you've been hiding
Tell me bout the times you didn't call
Give to me the truth that I've been craving
And I'll be here when those rose petals fall

But don't buy me roses if you don't love me
The real you is all I need
I won't settle for symbols of passion, yeah
Don't buy me roses if you don't love me
When honesty is what I need
I won't fall for symbols of passion
Don't buy me roses
Don't buy me roses
