(Nori Kelley)

Why do I find you confused and lonely
You’re painting a picture of roses in bloom
But something is wrong
I can tell by your trembling voice
All the while you long for love

I see a beautiful girl inside you
But she keeps on hiding herself underneath
Afraid to unlock the door
To let someone in
And all of the while she cries for love

Oh, there are roses to bloom around you
You’re pictures are turning and fading away
Come out in the daylight
And plant your seeds
And see how the flowers grow through love
