Every Rose Has Its Thorn Chords by Poison G Cadd9=C/D D Em C

Intro: G, Cadd9

Verse 1: G Cadd9
We both lie silently still, in the dead of the night. G Cadd9
Although we both lie close together, we feel miles apart inside. G Cadd9
Was it something I said, or something I did, G Cadd9
did my words not come out right? D C
Though I tried not to hurt you, though I tried, but I guess that's why they say

G Cadd9
Every rose has its thorn. G Cadd9
Just like every night has its dawn. G D C
Just like every cowboy sings a sad, sad song.
Every rose has its thorn.

Verse 2:
G Cadd9
Listen to our favorite song, playing on the radio. G Cadd9
Well the DJ says loves a game of easy come and easy go. G Cadd9 G Cadd9
But I wonder, does he know, has he ever felt like this. D C
Well I know that you'd be here right now if I

coulda let you know somehow, I guess


Em D C G
Though it's been awhile now, I can still feel so much pain.
Em D C G
Like a knife that cuts you the wound heals, but the scar, that scar remains


Verse 3:
G Cadd9
I know I coulda saved our love that night if I'd known what to say.
G Cadd9
Instead of making love we both made our separate ways. G Cadd9 G Cadd9
And now I hear you've found somebody new, and that I never meant that much to you. D C
To hear that tears me up inside, and to see you cuts me like a knife, I guess
