Lyrics:

I'm here again, I've been here before

My legs are hurting and my soles, they are sore

Looking for roses again

I've been looking for roses since then

I've seen the thorns, and I've felt them too

It's as if they're trying to warn me 'bout you

I feel myself coming close

As the sweetest of scents fill my nose

If life is more than a merry-go-round

If roses still find their way through the ground

I wanna feel you

Even if I have to steal you

My legs are hurting, but I don't feel no pain

My soles are sore, but they're not sore in vain

I fell in love with you

I believe you're in love with me too
