John Conlee--'Rose-Colored Glasses'

 

I don't know why I keep on believing you need me
When you've proved so many times that it ain't true
And I can't find one good reason for staying
Maybe by leaving would be the best for you

But these rose colored glasses
That I'm looking through
Show only the beauty
'Cause they hide all the truth

And they let me hold on to the good times, good lines
The ones I used to hear when I held you
And they keep me from feeling so cheated, defeated
When reflections in your eyes show me a fool

These rose colored glasses
That I'm looking through
Show only the beauty
'Cause they hide all the truth

So I just keep on hopin', believing
That maybe by counting the many times, I've tried
You'll believe me when I say, I love you
And I'll lay these rose colored glasses aside

These rose colored glasses
That I'm looking through
Show only the beauty
'Cause they hide all the truth

NOT John Conlee--'Rose-Colored Glasses'

 

I don't get why they keep on believing,
when he's proved so many times they don't ring true
Guess I'll just blame it all on the Kool-Aid,
no proof will ever be enough for you

 

And those rose-colored glasses,

that you're looking through

Show only lies to dreamers,
'cause they hide all the truth

 

And they let you hold on to the good lies,
the ones that he told and then sold you
And they keep you from feeling so cheated, defeated
when he reamed the election, and you played you for a fool

 

And those rose-colored glasses,

that you're looking through

Show only lies to dreamers,
'cause they hide all the truth

 

So you just keep on hopin', believing
that maybe the next time, you lie
to yourself, he'll come through,
and you can lay those rose-colored glasses aside

 

And those rose-colored glasses,

that you're looking through

Show only lies to dreamers,
'cause they hide all the truth
