ANITA BRYANT lyrics - Paper Roses

ANITA BRYANT
"Paper Roses"
(Janice Torre and Fred Spielma)

I realize the way your eyes deceived me
With tender looks that I mistook for love

So take away the flowers that you gave me
And send the kind that you remind me of

Paper roses, paper roses
Oh, how real those roses seemed to be
But they're only imitation
Like your imitation love for me

I thought that you would be a perfect lover
You seemed so full of sweetness at the start

But like a big red rose
That's made of paper
There isn't any sweetness
In your heart

Paper roses, paper roses
Oh, how real those roses seem to be
But they're only imitation
Like your imitation love for me
Like your imitation love for me
