lyrics I Threw Away the Rose

Once I lived the life of wine and roses
And I drank a lot back then for one concern
Success for me lay just around the corner
I thought my social friends would help me, make the turn
But now I'm paying for the days of wine and roses
A victim of the drunken life
I chose
Now all my social friends look down their noses
'Cos I kept the wine and threw away the rose
I stood by and watched the bottle take control of me
The turn I made was not the one I'd planned
And I watched my social standings slip away from me
While I watched the bottle slowly take command
And now I'm paying for the days of wine and roses
A victim of the drunken life
I chose
Now all my social friends look down their noses
'Cos I kept the wine and threw away the rose
'Cos I kept the wine and threw away the rose
