[G]She gave it away on [D]good faith when [C]she was 15 years [G]old.
[C]He was 16 and [G]did not appreciate the [D]delicacy of a rose.
[G]A long string of lovers helped [D]blur the line [C]between true love and [G]lust.
[C]A teenage girl who's[G] been sold short, [D]who's she got left to [G]trust'


[G]The cycle of sin she [D]found herself in [C]once the word got [G]out  
[C]It broke her [G]heart to realize what [D]they were all about.
[G]After she gave [D]all she had they [C]didn't treat her so [G]well.
[C]Each time she [G]went their way, [D]another petal [G]fell.
D C G Walk Down
Sometimes life leads you down a road that you don't choose.
[Em]You try so hard to [C]win but you still [G]loose.
[D]Bottle it all up inside where [C]nothing ever [G]grows.
[C]She built a ten foot [G]wall around what's [D]left of a [G]rose.
I[G] have always b[D]een there when she's c[C]ried a million t[G]ears.
[C]But I know why [G]she can't see that [D]I've loved her for years.
[G]In the fertile s[D]oil of my hands I [C]know real love could [G]bloom.
[C]I would give up [G]everything to [D]bathe in her per[G]fume.
D C G Walk Down
Sometimes life leads you down a road that you don't choose.
[Em]You try so hard to [C]win but you still [G]loose.
[D]Bottle it all up inside where [C]nothing ever [G]grows.
[C]She built a ten foot [G]wall around what's [D]left of a [G]rose.

[Em]She's been loved a time or[D] two
but I[C] don't think she could[G] tell.
She's[C] always been called[G] easy[C],  
But [C]friend she's hard [G]as  [D] h  [C]el  [G]l.  [C]    [G]    [D]

She gave it away on good faith when she was 15 years old.
He was 16 and did not appreciate the delicacy of a rose.
A long string of lovers helped blur the line between true love and lust.
A teenage girl who's been sold short, who's she got left to trust'

The cycle of sin she found herself in once the word got out
It broke her heart to realize what they were all about.
After she gave all she had they didn't treat her so well.
Each time she went their way, another petal fell.
D C G Walk Down
Sometimes life leads you down a road that you don't choose.
You try so hard to win but you still loose.
Bottle it all up inside where nothing ever grows.
She built a ten foot wall around what's left of a rose.
I have always been there when she's cried a million tears.
But I know why she can't see that I've loved her for years.
In the fertile soil of my hands I know real love could bloom.
I would give up everything to bathe in her perfume.
D C G Walk Down
Sometimes life leads you down a road that you don't choose.
You try so hard to win but you still loose.
Bottle it all up inside where nothing ever grows.
She built a ten foot wall around what's left of a rose.

She's been loved a time or two
but I don't think she could tell.
She's always been called easy,
But friend she's hard as hell.
D C G Walk Down
Sometimes life leads you down a road that you don't choose.
You try so hard to win but you loose.
Bottle it all up inside where nothing ever grows.
She built a ten foot wall around what's left of a rose.
She built a ten foot wall around what's left of a rose.
