Tommy Collins — I Overlooked An Orchid (While Searching For A Rose lyrics

The orchid is a flower that blooms so tenderly to thrill the fairest lady of the land
If placed beside a blushing rose the rose would not compare
But how was such as I to understand
I overlooked an orchid while searching for a rose the orchid that I overlooked was you
The rose that I was searching for has proved to be untrue
The orchid now I find my dear was you
[ guitar ]
The rose has lost it's color but the orchid is the same
And I'm alone to face these lonely years
I didn't see the orchid I was searching for a rose
And now I pay the price with bitter tears
I overlooked an orchid...
[ Lyrics from: ]
