Its taste was sweet like summer wine The heart that beats in double time So he waltzed right in and bowled you over And you're still reeling from the feeling when he's gone The door is closed the lock is turned And all the memories and letters have been burned So when you pick the handsome flower Don't forget the thorn upon the rose It's cut is deep and the scar lasts forever It follows love whereever love goes Just how we fall it's hard to know When what we feel we seldom show So we show the parts we feel are best We squirm around the edges trying to cover up the rest And you think you know him and he thinks the same When underneath it all it's just a crazy guessing game So when you pick the handsome flower Don't forget the thorn upon the rose It's cut is deep and the scar lasts forever It follows love whereever love goes Win or lose it's just the same Tears of joy tears of pain They're hand in hand they come as one You'll never see the moon without the promise of the sun For all the bruises for all the blows I'd rather feel the thorn than to never see the rose So when you pick the handsome flower Don't forget the thorn upon the rose It's cut is deep and the scar lasts forever It follows love whereever love goes
