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
