Bramble and the Rose Lyrics

by Patty Loveless

We have been so close together
Each a candle, each a flame
All the dangers were outside us
And we knew them all by name

Now see how the bramble and the rose
Intertwine
Now love grows like the bramble and the rose
Often cruel, often kind

Now I've hurt you and it hurts me
Just to see what we can do
To ourselves and to each other
Without really meaning to

Now see how the bramble and the rose
Intertwine
Now love grows like the bramble and the rose
'Round each other they will wind

So put your arms around me
Yes and sing a true love song
I wonder we can sing together
That will last the whole night long

So see how the bramble and the rose
Intertwine
Love grows like the bramble and the rose
'Round each other we will wind
Now love grows like the bramble and the rose
