Roses Lyrics

What if I told you that your time was up,
That as every second passes there's a moment gone, and
In twenty three hours the sun is gonna set, forever
Would you hug a little tighter, would you let go first,
Would you focus on love and then forget the hurt,
Living the moment and wish your life away.

How would you spend your last night on earth,
Would you kiss your enemies say so reverse,
Would you take enough time
To say your last goodbyes.
All the little battles that you never won,
all the music in the opera never sung,
emotions that were silent all these years,

You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
You can't smell the roses,
No it's not a rehearsal,
You only get one life so make it right,
You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
So live every moment like
"It's the last night on earth"
Cause this is the last night on earth.

What if I told you that I had regrets,
I would trade in all my happiness for one last kiss,
For a minute or two lying by your side.
What if I chose over nobody more,
If I uttered only promises with empty talk,
If I knew back then the things that I know now.

I would tell you that I love you then we'd all get low,
There are peaks and there are valleys, you've got to have known,
A second chance, it rarely comes around.
You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
You can't smell the roses, no it's not a rehearsal,
You only get one life so make it right,
You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
So live every moment like it's the last night on earth.

If I could have my time again,
I would make sure you knew just how I feel,
Somewhere I wait for much too long,
And the seasons change without me.

You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
You can't smell the roses,
No it's not a rehearsal,
You only get one life so make it right,
You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
So live every moment like
It's the last night on earth,
As if it's the last night on earth,
Cause this is the last night for love.
