HE GAVE ME A RED ROSE

He gave me a red rose
A rose with one thorn
A rose with one leaf
The only one for me
He’d love me with his heart
The whole of one heart
The rose his heart
The red his blood
Hold my heart he cried
You the one for me
I reach out and
Holding tight the rose
His heart his very heart
Right against my heart
Blood flows down my breast
The single rose has
A single thorn
And I bleed
Holding a green leaf
In my outstretched hand
