Flash Post 28!
“Button, I suddenly felt nostalgic about the first song I picked up from FM at the age of 17 or 18! I did it to sing the song to Dost who was dating me then. The song was called Paper Roses and sung by Marie Osmond. The lyrics of the song didn’t hold true for us but, somehow I just loved it and, it gave me a chance to flaunt my mediocre singing talent to him.
The song goes–
I realise the way your eyes deceived me
With tender looks that I mistook for love
So take away the flowers that you gave to me
And send a kind that you remind me of…
Oh how real those roses seem to be!
But they’re only imitation
Like your imitation love for me.
And Marie sang it in her husky, full-throated voice and she sang it beautifully.
I promise to sing for you if you return, Button. I promise.”
