Tenille Townes - I Kept The Roses Lyrics



I Kept The Roses Lyrics

I tore all of the pictures, from all of their frames
And all of your T-shirts, I gave them away
I gave up those friends, we both hung around and I
Gave up that bar on the east side of town I
Quit drivin' by to see if you're home and I
Took your dad number right out of my phone
I came to my senses, and I gave up drinkin' alone

But I kept the roses, right by my bed
And they sure make me lonely but I'm smilin' instead
'Cause you weren't the one babe, but you were the closest
I let the rest of us go, but I kept the roses

I guess they remind me of how love can feel
Sometimes it don't work, doesn't mean it ain't real
We had something different, we had something great
But somethings just wilt away

So I kept the roses, right by my bed
And they sure make me lonely but I'm smilin' instead
'Cause you weren't the one babe, but you were the closest
I let the rest of us go, but I kept the roses

Oh, I kept the roses, right by my bed
And they sure make me lonely but I'm smilin' instead
Oh, 'cause you weren't the one babe, but you were the closest
I let the rest of us go, but I kept the roses
I let the rest of us go, but I kept the roses
