You gave me all that I would need,
And made my wishes true
And every night to me you'd plead,
And I decline to you

You'd stand there pale and acrid eyed,
Yet softly say good night,
Turn and walk once more denied,
And so would fade the light

[Chorus]
The blue rose rare, one cannot gain
If glove or guard be worn
'Tis only when one risks the pain
Of flesh against the thorn

Our world was warm and full of play,
Yet I was not content
And voices strong led me astray,
And far from you I went

So swayed was I by other's view,
And fear it all would end
That I forgot to think of you,
My one and only friend

[Chorus]

A broken promise cannot die,
In dreams it always burned
And when I heard your anguished cry,
To you I soon returned

But must it take your world to fall,
To find where truth may lie
You are not the beast at all,
I fear my lord, 'tis I

A love this rare, one cannot gain,
If truth is not yet sworn
It?s only when we risk the pain
Of flesh against the thorn
