romance is dead lyrics – paloma faith

“romance is dead”

the plastic flowers you gave,
sit on the table
so unstable.
and there are some greasy finger prints
in the pre-wrote birthday card you wrote your name in
and i know that you make your effort but i think you could do much better

are roses blue and violets red?
say it isn’t true
don’t tell me romance is dead
so wake up your sleepy head
all your dreams are just a kiss away…

i ask you for a letter
so you e-mailed,
have we failed?
oh, you kiss with such a potential, then ask to speed up
it’s not enough
now i am carrying my own bags up, 17 flights of stairs, love

are roses blue and violets red?
say it isn’t true
don’t tell me romance is dead
so wake up your sleepy head
all your dreams are just a kiss away…

you shouldn’t take just valentine’s day just to show you love me
you don’t need any money, just a bit of imagination

are roses blue and violets red?
say it isn’t true
don’t tell me romance is dead
so wake up your sleepy head
think of all the magic we could make
all your dreams are just a kiss away

are roses blue and violets red?
say it isn’t true
don’t tell me romance is dead
so wake up your sleepy head
think of all the magic we could make
all your dreams…

are roses blue and violets red?
say it isn’t true
don’t tell me romance is dead
so wake up your sleepy head
think of all the magic we could make
all your dreams are just a kiss away!
