But regardless to who What, why, when and where We're all precious in his sight And and a rose is still And always will be a rose There was a rose I knew I met her once or twice before She was a pretty sweet thing Not the least bit insecure Then you came with your sticky game And played with her youth Unashamed of the way you lie And played with the truth, hey, hey She never knew what hit her Steal her honey then forget her Now the rose is scorned And she wears her thorns Trying to forget about you 'Cause a rose is still a rose Baby girl, you're still a flower He can't leave you and then take you Make you and then break you Darling, you hold the power Now believe it when I tell you That I've been hurt myself When he tells you that he loves you It's you, nobody else And now you're so tough Trying to wear Tight clothes and things Tossing and flossing Trying to fill the void Heartbreak brings When she looks in the mirror She's crying And you can't hear her Now the rose is scorned She wears her thorns Trying to forget about you 'Cause a rose is still a rose Baby girl, you're still a flower He can't leave you and then take you Make you and then break you Baby girl, you hold the power See, a rose is still a rose Baby girl, you're still a flower He can't leave you and then take you Make you and then break you Darling, you hold the power Let your life be in the sunshine Not the darkness of your sorrow You may be alone today But new love will come tomorrow Don't believe that life is over Just because your man is gone Got to love yourself enough to know That without him, your life goes on Without him, your life goes on Without him, your life goes on 'Cause a rose is still a rose Baby girl, you're still a flower He can't leave you and then take you Make you and then break you Baby girl, you hold the power You see a rose is still a rose Baby girl, you're still a flower He can't leave you and then take you Make you and then break you Darling, you hold the power
