Coming Up Roses Lyrics

When you were asleep
And I was out walking
The voices started to speak
And they wouldn't stop talking

There were signs all around
It really got my mind racing
You were right all along
Something's gotta change

Hold on
Hold on they're not for me
Hold on

'Cause everything's coming up roses
Roses

Now we're back on the street
For a song that's worth singing
A bloody nose, a defeat
While your victory bell's ringing

But life's turned around
For this thing you keep chasing
You were right all along
But it's me who's got to change

Hold on
Hold they're not for me
Hold on
'Cause everything's coming up roses

(Holdon, hold on)
Ahh
(Hold on, hold on)
Ah
(Hold on, hold on)
(Hold on, hold on)
Ah
(Hold on, hold on)
Ahh
(Hold on, hold on)
Ah
(Hold on, hold on)

Hold on
Hold on they're not for me
Hold on

'Cause everything's coming up
Roses

(Everything's coming up roses)
(Everything's coming up roses)
(Hold on, hold on)

Roses

(Hold on, hold on)
(Everything's coming up)
(Hold on, hold on)
(Everything's coming up)
(Hold on, hold on)

Roses

(Hold on, hold on)

Roses

1 Thoughts & Meanings

The song is talking about a relationship thats gone wrong. The beginnig verses are basically talking about how the relationship was beginning to collapse, she began to see signs, and voices all saying somethings got to change. Also how her partner didn't really notice or do anything while she was stuck in this horrible relationship he didn't seem to care hence the when "you where asleep". The chorus: The "hold on" I think its just to show how she doesn't really want to leave the relationship. "Everything coming up roses" is a common Idiom or phrase saying everything getting better after something bad, like roses coming up from the thorns. Although she says "They're not for me" (as in the roses aren't for her), all in all the chorus is saying how everything coming up roses, everything getting better for him not her. basically there next verses are saying how she left (or kicked out) of the relationship. She's stuck on the streets while he's got what he wants. Her life has completely messed up for something he has been chasing. What he's chasing could be anything, in this case (of the movie) it could either be his job/dream or him rising to fame as a pop star, or the girl that he left her for. For the line "It's me who's got to change" you can interpret this in different ways, however you wish. It could be that she has realised the reason it didn't work is her fault, maybe she feels guilty for not keeping up with him. Or it could be her saying she's got to change, can't keep waiting for him and loving him after everything she's got to look at the reality.
