thunder and roses lyrics – pam tillis

once i had champagne at sunset
breakfast in bed
and i hated myself for what i never felt
i couldn’t love him

then i had fire at midnight
p*ssion that brought tears to my eyes
it was like a joke,
i couldn’t get enough,
but he didn’t love me

oh oh oh
i wanna know why i can’t have both
someone that soothes my heart and burns my soul
something i can trust but i can’t control
all i need is someone who brings me
thunder and roses
thunder and roses

i wanna be safe and warm
in a beautiful storm
with somebody who shakes me
and knows how to take me away from this world
candles that burn all night
a lover that looks into my eyes
a man who loves me
and know how to touch me everywhere

i wanna know why i can’t have both
someone that soothes my heart and burns my soul
something i can trust but i can’t control
all i need is someone who brings me
thunder and roses
thunder and roses

i wanna know why i can’t have both
someone that soothes my heart and burns my soul
something i can trust but i can’t control
all i need is someone who brings me
all i need is someone who brings me
thunder and roses
thunder and roses
thunder and roses
thunder and roses

i wanna know…
i wanna know
why i can’t have both
i wanna know
why i can’t have both
that burns my soul
