Beautiful song. Couldn't find it, so here it is.

E
You've practiced and rehearsed it
     E+                         F#m       [ch]F#m/F[/ch]  [ch]F#m/E[/ch]
But in your heart you know It's too late. 
  B               B/F#
Experience should tell you 
B       B/F#           A    E
  Never get your story too straight. 
      A
You'd better steel yourself 
       Am
And prepare for 
     E        F#
Some blues to descend 
              F#m                        B
'Cause you've broken something this time 
                      E       F#m     B
Stoplight roses can't mend. 
 
       E        
You've dusted off your shame face 
       E+                         F#m     [ch]F#m/F[/ch]  [ch]F#m/E[/ch]
In the mirror behind the bathroom door. 
     B          B/F#
That little-boy-lost look 
     B               B/F#         A  E
That used to work so well Doesn't anymore. 
   A                         Am
If you believe your same-old used-to-be 
     E       F#
Will see you through 
       F#m                  B                E
You'll last about as long as stoplight roses do. 

          F#m
Stoplight roses 
 B7                      E   E7
    In their sad array. 
                  A
Love's promise in cellophane lace 
 B7                 E          E7
       Or dead giveaway? 
A                       Am
   You'll need time to devise
E               F#
      A stylish plan
           F#m   
And you'll do it driving over to 
B                          E      E7
       The stoplight roses man. 


       A                          Am
And if you believe your same-old used-to-be 
E                   F#
       Will see you through 
       F#m                   B               E
You'll last about as long as stoplight roses do.
