​Crown Of Thorns

This song is by Social Distortion and appears on the album White Light, White Heat, White Trash (1996).

Pretty much been alone now for almost five years
I could always find a way to hide these bitter tears
And still I'm a-waiting a-wishing somehow
I wish I knew then what I know now

It's no bed of roses
It ain't no crown of thorns
Better than lonely
I've been there before

Gotta bad reputation for playing with love
Gonna play again now and beat the odds above
And still I'm a-waiting and wishing somehow
I wish I knew then what I know now

It's no bed of roses
It ain't no crown of thorns
Better than lonely
I've been there before

Are you tired of being alone?
Or have you fallen out of love?
Do you care enough about yourself
I have worn your crown of thorns

It's no bed of roses
It ain't no crown of thorns
Better than lonely
I've been there before

It's no bed of roses
It ain't no crown of thorns
Better than lonely
I've been there before
