A Single Red Rose

 

You were gone when I woke up this morning,

But I thought everything was good last night.

Now I know the tears you cried were just a warning,

I wish you were here so I could make it right.

 

CHORUS:

Oh, darlin’, what will I do without you?

My heart aches for you more than anybody knows.

I can’t believe you’re really gone;

Oh tell me, how will I go on,

When all that’s left of you is a single red rose?

 

I remember back to the day when I met you,

You had the prettiest face I have ever seen;

And I was sure that I never would forget you,

I only knew I wanted you to be my queen.

 

CHORUS:

Oh, darlin’, what will I do without you?

My heart aches for you more than anybody knows;

I can’t believe you’re really gone;

Oh tell me, how will I go on,

When all that’s left of you is a single red rose?

 

What about the day you said to me, “I love you?”

Then you said yes when I asked you to be my wife.

And now I’m sitting here and I’m thinking of you,

And the mess that you’ve made of me and my sad life.

 

CHORUS:

Oh, darlin’, what will I do without you?

My heart aches for you more than anybody knows.

I can’t believe you’re really gone;

Oh tell me, how will I go on,

When all that’s left of you is a single red rose.

 

I guess that I’ll have to think about tomorrow,

Even though I know you will not be with me there.

And I’ll find a way to live with all my sorrow,

Even though I know it’s gonna be hard to bear.

 

CHORUS:

Oh, darlin’, what will I do without you?

My heart aches for you more than anybody knows.

I can’t believe you’re really gone;

Oh tell me, how will I go on,

When all that’s left of you is a single red rose?
