Plastic Roses

Album: Me, You and the Music (2013)
  • Tell myself as I lie here on the floor

    So here I am , once again
    Trying to smell the scent of plastic roses, roses

    Hear as good as it feels
    I know your love is no more real
    Than plastic roses, and the roses, roses

    Ignorance is bliss
    But see I know it's a lie
    Which in lies a problem in this

    Is it wrong to pretend
    I don't know that the truth exists
    Can I make believe
    I'm a fool just long enough
    For one last kiss

    Every night so pretty
    Don't you dare fall for it
    That's what I tell myself as I lie here on the floor

    So here I am , once again
    Trying to smell the scent of plastic roses, roses

    Hear as good as it feels
    I know your love is no more real
    Than plastic roses, and the roses, roses Writer/s: JESSE WILSON, REGINALD SMITH, SHAFFER SMITH
