The Singularity of Beauty in Ordinary Things: Everything’s Coming Up Roses.

RosaPalette1

You don’t believe me
I can tell it by your eyes

There’s a kind of magic to be had from your lies
I used to say that today is like tomorrow

RosaPalette2

Don’t sell it short for truth
I should have known
I should have known

RosaPalette3RosaPalette4

Should have known how

I should have known
I should have known by now

But now
Everything is coming up roses
Everything is coming up roses

RosaPalette7

You don’t understand it
I can tell it by your smile

There’s a kind of freedom to be had from your lies

I always said that today is like tomorrow

Don’t sell it short for truth

I should have known
I should have known

Should have known how

Everything is coming up roses
Everything is coming up
Coming up
