Maureen Mcgovern — Don't Try To Close A Rose lyrics

They say that everything you do
Turns out all wrong
And that you're bound to lose
But you love me too much
To take me along

Don't ever try to close a rose
After it's bloomed to the tune
Of a spring-time day
It won't work anyway
'Cause once it knows the sun, it grows
And keeps on growin'
Knowin' it must say goodbye
To the field and the sky

So, don't you worry about me
You could never make me unhappy
'Cause we've both been touched
By the spring-time sun
We've already won

As long as you want me,
I'll be right there
Even with a life full of hard times,
We've got a love
That we can share

Don't ever try to close a rose
After it's bloomed to the tune
Of a spring-time day
It won't work anyway
'Cause once it knows the sun, it grows
And keeps on growin'
Knowin' it must say goodbye
To the field and the sky

Don't ever try to close a rose
After it's bloomed to the tune
Of a spring-time day
It won't work anyway
(repeat and fade out)
