Crimson Roses

Crimson Roses
Lori Lieberman

Crimson roses, scarlet satin
Indigo as blue can be
All I want is something honest
All I need is everything

Cause I can’t go on the way we were
And I can’t live in this world
Without your love

I know better, I’m a fighter
Last one standing in the ring
Love’s a battle
Steel and fire
Hit me once, I never bleed

But I can’t go on the way I was
And I can’t live in this world
Without your love

Well I’m ready, yeah I’m willing
Even if I take this fall
It’s not a question of losing or winning
It’s not a case of that at all

It’s just I can’t go the way we were
And I can’t live in this world
Without your love

Steel and iron, fire and ice
Which are you, baby which am I
We’re like water, just like gold
You’re the fire in my soul

Crimson roses, scarlet satin
Indigo as blue can be
All I want is something honest
All I need is everything

Cause I can’t go on the way I was
And I can’t live in this world
Without your love
