ONE ROSE

(2008)
In my young days in Bolivia
I worked out in the fields
No matter how I tried
I could not meet our needs
Mario just came my way
And painted me a dream
He said, life is sweet in Ireland
The fields are rich and green

I'd love one rose to smell one day
To take me from my pain
I'd love someone to comfort me
And call me by my name

Why did I believe him?
The tale he wove so well
I took the hand that guided me
And walked into his spell
He promised me everything
He took everything I owned
He said, he'd protect me
When he led me from my home

I'd love one rose to smell one day
To take me from my pain
I'd love someone to comfort me
And call me by my name

Simple days in the fields
I owned my dignity
The stranger's smell and his cold hand
Is all that now awaits me

I'd love one rose to smell one day
To take me from my pain
I'd love someone to comfort me
And call me by my name
