Roses are red


violets are blue


my world is so crushed


because theres no you


you promised you'd never hurt me


you promised id never cry


you knew id come back


you knew id believe your lies





now the roses aren't red


the violets aren't blue


the world seems so much better


because theres no more you


you've always made me laugh


you always seemed to care


i'm trying to figure out what went wrong


none of this seems fair





there are no more roses


the violets are gone too


there is a world inside this world


because theres no more you


i knew id be fine


i pulled through it all


I'm so much stronger now


you are no longer my downfall





the roses are back


the violets are ever so bright


now its your turn to be the bug


that got too close to the light
