Buy Me a Rose
by Kenny Rogers



He works hard to give her all he thinks she wants
Three-car garage, her own credit cards
He pulls in late to wake her up with a kiss goodnight
If he could only read her mind, she'd say...

Buy me a rose, call me from work
Open the door for me what would it hurt
Show me you love me by the look in your eyes
These are the little things I need the most in my life.

Now the days have grown to years of feeling all alone
She can't help but wonder what she's doin' wrong
Lately she'd try anything to turn his head
Would it make a difference if she'd say...

Buy me a rose, call me from work
Open the door for me what would it hurt
Show me you love me by the look in your eyes
These are the little things I need the most in my life.

And the more that he leaves, less that he tries
To show her the love that he holds inside
And the more that she gives, the more that he sees
This is the story of you and me.

So I bought you a rose on the way home from work
To open the door to a heart that i hurt
And I hope you noticed this look in my eyes
Cause I'm gonna make things right for the rest of your life!

And I'm gonna hold you tonight...
Do all those little things for the rest of your life!
