Beautiful Eulogy - 65 Roses lyrics

[Hook] Life loves me, life loves me not it goes I see the beauty in a flower when I'm pulling on the rose Prick a fingertip and bleed a bit from trying to hold it tight I want a year for every petal, still alive at 65 [Verse 1] What is life expectancy, what a way to phrase a question What kind of answer should return the truth, convey the message Is it equality, the same end for every person Is it sovereignty, a giving God and living with purpose Is it only shall the strong survive and then will end the weak Or a dog eat dog world, take advantage, turn the cheek How 'bout livin' out your dreams and express it through a poem Know what you expect out of life and you can gain the gold Well for a family of an infant diagnosed to comatose It's a journey down the pathway to fight and know the ropes Each living soul is different like a fingerprint's identity Each body's made a little different, singing it's own melody Embedded in the DNA where the twisted strands dance I wish I could guide the way and hold each little one's hand I've been there before, and I know the way now Like a tourist with a map and pamphlet, got it laid out [Hook x2] Life loves me, life loves me not it goes I see the beauty in a flower when I'm pulling on the rose Prick a fingertip and bleed a bit from trying to hold it tight I want a year for every petal, still alive at 65 [Verse 2] Can life be repaid, can life be reimbursed Get the tears back you cried for every time you felt the hurt What about medical bills, hospital trips, doctor visits Time and time again, hearing results that weren't worth a listen But you have to hear the news for what it is Could do damage to your ears or it might mend a heart that's delicate A life long relationship with medical technology Feel like the d** and machines should owe me an apology Where to aim to blame, if only that I knew For the one who has the power has more love for me than I do Not a measurement of self esteem or the image in the mirror Not in a sense of being vein but in a sense of being clearer And, unconditional not limited by any means Break the strands and molds that try to pigeon-hole me please And, unconventional, Ill be damned if I don't defy Disease, I want seeds in a family that can multiply [Hook x2] Life loves me, life loves me not it goes I see the beauty in a flower when I'm pulling on the rose Prick a fingertip and bleed a bit from trying to hold it tight I want a year for every petal, still alive at 65 [Verse 3] Will God give me the chance to say goodbye one last time Gather friends and family members single file in a line Apologize for neglecting, for always second guessing I should have nurtured more relationships are such a blessing Hear a word from a friend that makes you smile when it hurts Get better treatment from your wife than any certified nurse And a rock to stand on, not just in Christ but in family Break their backs just to help you hold steady handling It's 1, 2, I'm an angel in waiting Growing wings out of my spine to take flight navigating to When it comes time, give 'em pounds and daps. I'm out of here Take the one and only flight up, blast into the atmosphere Look next to me, I'm not flying all alone Ill take the long road home to where the psalms unfold And be the oldest man living till the day I pa** away Telling Cystic Fibrosis that it lost again today [Hook x2] Life loves me, life loves me not it goes I see the beauty in a flower when I'm pulling on the rose Prick a fingertip and bleed a bit from trying to hold it tight I want a year for every petal, still alive at 65
