​Blue Roses

This song is by Jimmy Nail and appears on the album Crocodile Shoes II (1996) and on the album The Nail File: The Best Of Jimmy Nail (1997).

Blue roses will blossom in the snow
Before I ever let you go
Blue roses will grow up to the sky
Before I ever make you cry
Blue roses

You need more reassurance
Than a frightened orphan child
That I'm always gonna want you
That I'll always be beguiled
So I search for words to tell you
That my love for you is blind
But this fragment of a children's song
Is all that I can find

Blue roses will blossom in the snow
Before I ever let you go
Blue roses will grow up to the sky
Before I ever make you cry
Blue roses

This nursery rhyme is corny
It is stranded out of time
But it's simple and it's honest
And since when was that a crime?
And perhaps whoever wrote it
Loved someone like I love you
For in matters of the heart, I've found
There's little that is new

Blue roses will blossom in the snow
Before I ever let you go
Blue roses will grow up to the sky
Before I ever make you cry

Blue roses will blossom in the snow
Before I ever let you go
Blue roses will grow up to the sky
Before I ever make you cry
Before I ever make you cry
Blue roses
