A Rose On Concrete


Dreams are nothing but absurd
That's what they choose to believe,

Oho! They must have never heard
About the rose that grew on the concrete,

Why do they choose to be blind
When the truth is there to see,
Oho! I hope in their heart they will find
About the rose that grew on the concrete,

I only wish you don't forget the truth
Or lose hope in the fight and leave,
Oho! Stop for a moment and let me tell you
About the rose that grew on the concrete,

Sometimes we all feel lonely
Even when we tell ourselves that we are free,
Oho! I stop and realize it is only a story
About the rose that grew on the concrete.'
