Words and music by paddy mcaloon

Blue roses will blossom in the snow
Before I ever let you go
Blue roses will grow up to the sky
Before I ever make you cry
Blue roses...

You need more reassurance
Than a frightened orphan child
That I'm always gonna want you
That I'll always be beguiled
So I search for words to tell you
That my love for you is blind
But this fragment of a children's song
Is all that I can find

Blue roses will blossom in the snow
Before I ever let you go
Blue roses will grow up to the sky
Before I ever make you cry
Blue roses...

This nursery rhyme is corny,
It is stranded out of time
Yet it's simple and it's honest
The same and since when was that a crime ?
And perhaps whoever wrote it
Loved someone like I love you
For in matters of the heart I've learned
There's little that is new

Blue roses will blossom in the snow
Before I ever let you go
Blue roses will grow up to the sky
Before I ever make you cry
Blue roses...
