A Good Year For The Roses  Counting Crows

[C]I can hardly stand the sight of lipstick
on the ciga[F]rettes there in the [C]ashtray.
Lying cold the way you left them,
but at least your lips car[F]essed them
w[C]hile you packed.  [C7]
Or the [F]lip print on a half-filled cup
of coffee that you poured
and d[C]idn't drink.
But at l[G]east you thought you wanted it
which is so much more than I can say f[C]or me.

CHORUS:
It's been a good year for the r[F]oses     [G]
Many blooms still [C]linger there.
The lawn could stand another [Dm]mowing    [G]
it's funny, I don't even c[C]are
But as you turned and [F]walked away [G]
As the door behind you [F]clos[C]es
The only thing I thought to [Dm]say       [G]
is what a good year for the [F]ros[C]es

VERSE:
After three, four years of marriage
it's the first time that you haven't made the bed
I guess the reason we're not talking,
is there's so little left to say that we haven't said
While a million thoughts go racing through my mind
I guess I haven't said a word
From the bedroom, the familiar sound
of our one baby's crying goes unheard

CHORUS:
It's been a good year for the r[F]oses     [G]
Many blooms still [C]linger there.
The lawn could stand another [Dm]mowing    [G]
it's funny, I don't even c[C]are
But as you turned and wal[F]ked away    [G]
As the door behind you [F]clos[C]es
The only thing I thought to [Dm]say       [G]
is what a good year for [F]the roses [C]
