And a lip print on a half filled cup of coffee That you poured and didn't drink But at least you thought you wanted it That's so much more than I can say for me Chorus But what a good year for the roses Many blooms still linger there The lawn could stand another mowin' It's funny, I don't even care And when you turned and walked away And as the door behind you closes The only thing I know to say It's been a good year for the roses After three full years of marriage It's the first time that you Haven't made the bed I guess the reason we're not talkin' There's so little left to say, We haven't said While a million thoughts Go runnin' through my mind I find I haven't spoke a word And from the bedroom those familiar sounds of our one baby's cryin' Goes unheard Chorus
