or
Nanci Griffith

If you could stand behind my eyes for just one day
Could you see my heart beside you?
If you knew my love had never flown away
Would I be missing you
Wouldn't that be roses
Wouldn't that be fine?

If I could wash away all these years with language
Could this naked love survive the light of day
If I could be the one who walked away
Would you be missing me
Wouldn't that be roses
Wouldn't that be fine?

I saw the weather change high up on the cap rock
It is my sense of place
You were my holiday
If you could hold me now and brace these broken shoulders
Wouldn't that be trust
Wouldn't that be roses
Wouldn't that be fine?

If I could turn your head with the round of my pen
Leaving all we've said
Behind us
If I could roll these dice and finally loose my anger
Wouldn't that be love
Wouldn't that be roses
Wouldn't that be fine?
