Listen deer I realize that you've been hurt, deeply
Because I've been there
But regardless of who, what, why, when, where and where
We're all precious on his side
And a rose still and always will be a rose

Doo doo doo doo doo doo mmm
Dooby dooby doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo mmm

There was a rose I knew, I met her once or twice before (once or twice before)
She was a pretty sweet thing, not the least bit insecure (insecure)
Then you came with your slick game and played with her youth (her youth)
Unashamed of the way you lied, played with the truth, hey, hey

Mmm, she never knew what hit her (what hit her)
Steal her honey, then forget her (forget her, forget her, forget her)
And the rose (is gone)
And she wears a flower
She tryin' to forget about you

'Cause a rose is still a rose (still a rose)
Baby, girl, you're still a flower (still a flower)
He can't lead you and then take you
Make you and then break you
Darlin', you hold the power (you hold the power)

Now believe me when I tell you that I've been hurt myself (been hurt myself)
When he tells you that he loves you and sees nobody else (nobody else)
And now you're so tough tryin' to wear tight clothes and things
Tossin' and flossin', tryin' to fill the void heartbreak brings

Oh, oh, yeah
When she faces the mirror, yeah
She's cryin', and you can't hear her
Now the rose is gone (rose is gone)
She wears a flower (she wears a flower), tryin' to forget about you, girl

'Cause a rose is still a rose (still a rose)
Baby, girl (baby girl), you're still a flower (you're still a flower)
He can't lead you and then take you
Make you and then break you (break you)
Darlin' (oh darlin'), you hold the power (you hold the power)

Let your life be in the sunshine
Not the darkness of your sorrow
You may feel you lost today
When you know it'll come tomorrow

Tough to be, but life ain't over
Just because your man is gone
Girl, love yourself and love to love
'Cause without him your life goes on
Without him your life goes on
Without him your life goes on

'Cause a rose is still a rose
Baby, girl, you're still a flower
He can't lead you and then take you
Make you and then break you
Baby, girl, you hold the power

See the rose is still a rose
Baby, girl, you're still a flower

He can't lead you and then take you
Make you and then break you
Darlin', you hold the power
