Two Red Roses

by Lee Hill

Genre: Country

Lyrics

He keeps two red roses, in the window sill by the side screen door;
He keeps two red roses, keeps them alive in an old fruit jar;

(He say’s) One’s for her, one’s for the fire;
One’s his happiness, the other desire;

He carries two red roses, on the dusty dash of his pickup truck;
Carries ’round two dead roses, tucked in the cover of a book for luck;

(He say’s) One’s for her, one’s for the fire;
One’s his happiness, and the other’s his desire;

BRIDGE

One rose keeps him thinking there’s hope;
One rose keeps him sad;
But they both make him wonder to himself, “Where the hell did it go bad? Because”
Two red roses make him second-guess, and he cannot stop the pain;
And two red roses keep him trying to hold on, to get her back again.

He carries two red roses, on the dusty dash of his pickup truck;
Carries ’round two dead roses, tucked in the cover of a book for luck;

(He say’s) One’s for her, one’s for the fire;
One’s his happiness, the other desire;
