Faded Garden Rose

Faded Garden Rose

I picked a rose from the garden
Where all the garden roses grow
I picked a rose from the garden
Then I carefully placed it in a vase for show

The rose I picked was not so new
Who knows where a faded love goes
The rose I chose was just for you
I picked a petal from a faded garden rose

A rose is nice most of the year
But when cold ice comes it will close
Like love's door when love is not here
I hold a petal from a faded garden rose

A rose is nice most of the year
But when cold ice comes it will close
Like love's door when love is not here
I hold a petal from a faded garden rose

Our old love is a memory
That can't live again, I suppose
I'll keep a souvenir for me
I'll keep a petal from a faded garden rose

I'll keep growing garden roses
Water them with the tears that flow
And when they fade for mistakes made
I'll pick a petal from a faded garden rose
