CHORUS:
Purple roses, getting purple roses it was not your time.
Purple roses, giving purple roses it should be a crime.
Who's been there right from the start? To have them come to tear apart.
And now I have to bring these purple roses.

VERSE 1:
It started, when you were in my mama's womb.
I saw you there, and I never thought, I would see you in the tomb.
I was so excited, you were coming here.
A friend of my own, a baby doll, I was so filled with cheer.
Raised you up, to the woman today.
And it broke me down, when you went away. Purple Roses, yeah.

BRIDGE:
How you gonna leave me, Lord know I wasn't ready,
I'm so scared to let you go.
This pain it runs so deep, some nights I can't sleep
So lost in my mental (2X's)

CHORUS:
Purple roses, getting purple roses it was not your time.
Purple roses, giving purple roses it should be a crime.
Who's been there right from the start? To have them come to tear apart.
And now I have to bring these purple roses.

VERSE 2:
They turned you against me. Spreading lies all through your head.
And when they were through with you they sent you back to me dead.
I want you to live, I just want you to be free.
But you sign your death warrant, the day you turned your back on me.
I was the only one who really cared for you.
Cuz I was left all alone, when I had to bury you. Purple roses.

BRIDGE:
How you gonna leave me, Lord know I wasn't ready,
I'm so scared to let you go.
This pain it runs so deep, some nights I can't sleep
So lost in my mental (2X's)

CHORUS (SOLO):
Purple roses, getting purple roses it was not your time.
Purple roses, giving purple roses it should be a crime.
Who's been there right from the start? To have them come to tear apart.
And now I have to bring these purple roses.
