Because the roses surround an orchid, they believe it to be the ugliest rose, but it isn't true
It was only sown in the wrong flower garden
and now in full bloom its heart has hardened
But it's a beautiful orchid and yet it doesn't know it, for it only sees itself as the roses do.
Has anyone came to the garden and said to you
I can understand the reason why you are blue
You stand alone believing that you're the only one
But you're the prettiest orchid standing there in the sun.
Do they want to dig you up and take you away
and plant you in the right garden, have you heard them say
Or do they leave you alone to suffer so
In a garden of roses so that you'll never know.
You're the prettiest orchid in a garden of roses around you
You believe yourself to be the ugliest rose, but it isn't true
You were only sown in the wrong flower garden
and now in full bloom your heart has hardened
But you're a beautiful orchid and yet you don't know it, for you only see yourself as the roses do.
