Rose Colored Glasses

Album: Rose Colored Glasses (1978)
  • I don't know why I keep on believing you need me
    When you've proved so many times that it ain't true
    And I can't find one good reason for staying
    Maybe by leaving would be the best for you

    But these rose colored glasses
    That I'm looking through
    Show only the beauty
    'Cause they hide all the truth

    And they let me hold on to the good times, good lines
    The ones I used to hear when I held you
    And they keep me from feeling so cheated, defeated
    When reflections in your eyes show me a fool

    These rose colored glasses
    That I'm looking through
    Show only the beauty
    'Cause they hide all the truth

    So I just keep on hopin', believing
    That maybe by counting the many times, I've tried
    You'll believe me when I say, I love you
    And I'll lay these rose colored glasses aside

    These rose colored glasses
    That I'm looking through
    Show only the beauty
    'Cause they hide all the truth Writer/s: GEORGE F. BABER, JOHN W CONLEE
