lyrics

I took my heaviest book
And I placed you inside
With each breath that you took
Rested soft by my side
Before your petals could fall
And colors would fade
I'd preserve your heart
And press you into the page

Mmm
You're my yellow rose
Mmm
I'll take you wherever I go

And I like to think
That I know what you think
And I spend too long
Spend too long in my dreams
I'm fixated on
What this could be
This purpose I hope
I hope that you can see

I've got this pen and this paper
But I don't know how I'll get there
And I just want people to see
To see what they need
To love everyone and be free

They said things would get easier
Once I made it, the money would roll in
I know this seems impossible
This insane situation we're in

They said things would get easier
Once I made it, the money would roll in
I know this seems impossible
This insane situation we're in

You're my rose
But this is my dream
You're all that I want
But what do I need?

I took my heaviest book
And placed you inside
With each breath that you took
Rested soft by my side
Before your petals could fall
And colors would fade
I'd preserve your heart
And press you into the page
