21 Roses
Two young people falling in love
beneath the Iowa stars
They were holding each other
like first time lovers
In the back seat of his first car.
They could have run for cover
but it was too late in that little town's eyes
So they looked to the Father
'bout a year later
They gave up a precious life

21 roses for each of the years
he wasn't there
She had 21 roses for each of the years
she wasn't there
There were so many questions for such a long time
When you're feeling unwanted you're glad you're alive
For 21 years

Well the years pressed on and the child pressed on
to find her real mother and father.
She was raised with such love
they just gave her a hug
And loved her as their daughter.
Through the tears they all could see
Just how special this day could be.
And none had known
but a bright light shone
They were all holdin' roses
all holdin' roses.


We could've bailed but that wasn't an option.
It was a different world then
but there was never a question
When I look in your eyes
I realize
just how beautiful a child can be.
I thank God we set you free.
