​Roses And Diesel

This song is by The Clarks and appears on the album Strikes And Gutters (2001).

Roses and diesel don't mix.
You can't just come and go
I sit around and wonder, why I should be alone

I know Venus came from Mars
And Venus sure could play guitar
Born in the way of desires In my eyes, Venus was a star

Working hard, time was very
Few and far between, we'd marry
I wait up for you at night
Though I won't see you 'til January

Roses and diesel don't mix.
You can't just come and go
I sit around and wonder, why I should be alone

When will I see you again?
On the road next week, I dread
That you'll be on a bus to nowhere
Singing about the days that might have been

Put down that guitar, I'm talking to you
I can't seem to quite get through
Trying to talk about our future,
A house, some kids, and how much I miss you

Roses and diesel don't mix.
You can't just come and go
I sit around and wonder, why I should be alone

Oh no, I won't let go
In time you will know
What it means to be...
All in good time

Roses and diesel don't mix.
You can't just come and go
I sit around and wonder, why I should be alone

Roses and diesel don't mix.
You can't just come and go
I sit around and wonder, why I should be alone
