all because empty roses lie idly

all because empty roses lie idly
we strive for perfection
we sit and take it
all alone on the park bench,
watch the sun rise,
the children holler,
we sit and take it
all around the city,
our hearts beating imperfection
we live, laugh, love, carry on
we sit and take it

all because empty roses lie idly
we sing old songs more loudly,
let our mouths do the talking
all washed up and ready
we sit and take it
all shined up and heavy
we sit and take it

we sneak under the moon
do our things,
do our things,
all because empty roses lie idly
we live, laugh, love, and die
and strive
while all around us
and somewhere in eternity
empty roses lie idly.
