Verse 1

They say loving someone who doesn't love you back

Is like hugging a cactus-

The tighter you hold on, the more it hurts.

Maybe they are right, cause I can't see any progress

As days turn into months-

Every time I find hope, the pain restarts.

Pre-chorus

And my skin has been pierced by your thorns.

But these are wounds of love that I adorn.

I'm holding on to the words that I had sworn-

I'll keep on loving you till I'm completely torn.

Chorus

They may say that your love stings me like a cactus.

But I keep telling them that every rose has its thorn.

All I can see is the beauty and fragrance of this feeling.

I can deal with your rage and cold shoulder and scorn.

Verse 2

I've been holding on so long, the pain is numb now,

I can't feel my skin bleed.

Yes, as time passes, things do get easy.

I'll nurture you, even though I know it's something

That you will never need.

Baby, consider it a consolation for me.

Pre-chorus

My skin has been pierced by your thorns.

But these are wounds of love that I adorn.

I'm holding on to the words that I had sworn-

I'll keep on loving you till I'm completely torn.

Chorus

They may say that your love stings me like a cactus.

But I keep telling them that every rose has its thorn.

All I can see is the beauty and fragrance of this feeling.

I can deal with your rage and cold shoulder and scorn.

Bridge

And maybe one day life will reward me for my resolve,

And these walls of thorns that keep hurting us will dissolve.

Your heart will blossom with love instead of being a cactus…

Maybe one day there will be for real an "us".

Chorus

And they may say that your love stings me like a cactus.

But I keep telling them that every rose has its thorn.

(These are wounds of love that I adorn.)

All I can see is the beauty and fragrance of this feeling.

I can deal with your rage and cold shoulder and scorn.

(I'm holding on to the words that I had sworn)

I'll keep on loving you till I'm completely torn.

I'll keep on loving you till I'm completely torn.

Maybe one day there will be for real an "us".

Your heart will blossom with love instead of being a cactus…
