the color of roses lyrics – beth nielsen chapman

i held you close to me, once in a distant dream
far from the sh*r*s of my fear
i sailed on this ocean, where all i imagined could happen
and now you are here

it’s so hard to touch what is out of our hands
to know and to trust what the heart understands

only the ones who believe
ever see what they dream
ever dream what comes true

life gives us magic and life brings us tragedy
everyone suffers some loss
still we have faith in it, childlike hope
there’s a reason that outweighs the cost

and gravity throws all these rules in our way
and sometimes the spirit refuses to play

only the ones who believe
ever see what they dream
ever dream what comes true

and oh, love
turn me around in your arms
and in this dream we share
let us not miss one kiss

and add my regrets to the tears in the rain
that’s what the color of roses contain

only the ones who believe
ever see what they dream
ever dream, ever dream what comes true
