Been busy doing lyrics to metal songs, but I wrote this last year. CMA

She’s A Rose
____________Verse/Chorus

Verse 1:
The signs are very clear, all she wants is me
Rehearsed her lines sincere, an Oscar nominee
Dressed to the nines in sheer, high heels and leather gloves
It’s her designs I fear, to which I’m speaking of

Verse 2:
I see it in her eyes, thirty feet away
To her I seem a prize, so she makes her play
She comes to me sidewise, I feel she’s in control
My heart begins to rise, on it she has a hold

Chorus 1:
Then I hear a song
Singing from the heart of me
Could’ve I been wrong
Is this a different part of me
Her smile shows she knows
Despite the thorns I start to see
She’s a rose, she’s a rose, she’s a rose

Verse 3:
I can’t believe my eyes, all she is is love
Is my mind full of lies of what she is made of
Her darkness does disguise a love that’s true and clear
And then I realize, there’s nothing I should fear

Chorus 2:
Then I hear that song
Singing from the heart of me
I know I’ve been wrong
This is a different part of me
Her laugh shows she knows
Despite the thorns I start to see
She’s a rose, she’s a rose, she’s a rose

Bridge:
She pulls me in a dance, it’s a chance to see is this what I’ve been dreaming of
Which, at a glance, I hope will turn to a romance and end result in love

Chorus 3:
Then I hear our song
Singing from the heart of me
I know I belong
She moves like she’s a part of me
Her love shows she knows
Forget the thorns, her heart I see
She’s a rose, she’s a rose, she’s a rose

Post Chorus:
I see she’s a rose, she’s a rose, she’s a rose

Charles, it reads very good the only word I feel is out of place is sway. Other than that I think it’s pretty tight.

Thanks, Mike. I changed that phrase.
