Highlighted Show chord diagrams
E You've practiced and rehearsed C#m But in your heart you know F#m A B It's too late. Fm Experience should tell you B A E Never get your story too straight. A You'd better steel yourself G#m And prepare for C#m F#m Some blues to descend A 'Cause you've broken something this time B E Stoplight roses can't mend. E You've dusted off your shame face C#m Fm A B In the mirror behind the bathroom door. F#m That little-boy-lost look B That used to work so well A E Doesn't anymore. A G#m If you believe your same-old used-to-be C#m F#m Will see you through A B E You'll last about as long as stoplight roses do. E F#m Stoplight roses B E In their sad array. A Love's promise in cellophane lace B E Or dead giveaway? A G#m You'll need time to devise C#m F#m A stylish plan A B And you'll do it driving over to E The stoplight roses man. E A G#m And if you believe your same-old used-to-be C#m F#m Will see you through A B E You'll last about as long as stoplight roses do.
