Subject: Lyr Add: FADED ROSES OF DECEMBER (Utah Phillips)
From: kendall
Date: 18 Feb 01 - 03:16 PM

Words and music by Utah Phillips
As recorded by Finest Kind on "Starlight on the Rails: A Songbook" (2005)

The faded roses of December
Are sweeter than the flowers of the spring.
I'd rather have a heartache to remember
Than a fickle love that doesn't mean a thing.
No matter what it is they say about me,
That I'm sad and will give no reason why,
It's because my faded rose within my heart still grows
While the flowers of the springtime fade and die.

Today will soon become tomorrow.
Oh, how I wish my heart could stay behind!
For though I know the past just brings me sorrow,
To love again would only be unkind.
Don't ask me for a heart that I can't give you
Or to live as though the past had never been,
For the vows I make today my dreams would all betray
And then my faded rose would bloom again.
