NEW SONG | “All Those Pretty Roses” ~ Original by Kate Stedelbauer

Friends! Your girl is finally back on the YouTube game.

Please take a minute to listen to my new song! I wrote it after becoming inspired by the often-repeated phrase, “stop and smell the roses”, while contemplating how quickly time seems to pass and how lucky we are to be alive experiencing life on this earth. We’re only given one life and it’s up to us to decide how to spend it.

I hope y’all enjoy – don’t forget to thumbs-up the video and subscribe! 

LYRICS: 

we take each breath as if it’s guaranteed

we cash out every moment like it’s cheap

dropping days like pocket change down a sidewalk grate

like they don’t mean anything

and they say stop and smell the flowers while you’re living

you never know just what you’ll be missing because

 

the trees only change but once a year and you may never come back here

and it ain’t every night you can have that extra beer if you want

some of us only get to love one time so treat her well and hold him tight

but listen when your heart says that it’s time to move on

cause just when you think your garden is filled

all those pretty roses will wilt

pick ’em while you can

 

we stay in line to bypass any risks

single file like check marks on a list

and then we lose control down rabbit holes of evanescent bliss

we run the race just so we can finish

but learn to close your eyes and open up that door

and then you’ll realize your life is so much more than this

 

cause the trees only change but once a year and you may never come back here

and it ain’t every night you can have that extra beer if you want

some of us only get to love one time so treat her well and hold him tight

but listen when your heart says that it’s time to move on

cause just when you think your garden is filled

all those pretty roses will wilt

pick ’em while you can

 

and put ’em in a vase on your momma’s kitchen counter

sing a song, do a dance, and forget to count the hours that you’re missing

nah, you ain’t missing nothing anymore

 

cause the trees only change but once a year and you may never come back here

and it ain’t every night you can have that extra beer if you want

some of us only get to love one time so treat her well and hold him tight

but listen when your heart says that it’s time to move on

and when you drive the fast line down this road called life

remember that your roses will die

pick ’em while you can
