“Are you sorry, or just sorry you got caught?
You want forgiveness, but that’s somethin’ I ain’t got
Did you really think I, would never find you out
No 2-for-3, cheap apology will ever help you now
So don’t give me no dirty roses
Buddy your door is closin’
They ain’t pretty enough, to ever cover up, the damage that you’ve done
There Ain’t no second chances
Say hello to your consequences
You been playing in the mud and everybody knows it
Don’t give me no dirty roses
I ain’t sorry that I hate the color red
Just like us they’re meaningless and soon they’ll be dead
Cause you’re the one, the one who dug the grave
Even if I tried, to keep ‘em alive, thorns cut anyway…”
“Sometimes being good doesn’t make up for being bad and that’s exactly what we wanted to say when we wrote ‘Dirty Roses!’ This song is so fun live and our studio band captured that perfectly with this almost punk-rock country anthem! Y’all crank it up!” exclaimed Dallas Remington.
Co-writer Nancy Deckant shared, “When we were working on the song, I remember thinking, ‘Sometimes there are things you just need to say without worrying about how it comes out.’ Thank you ‘Dirty Roses’ for showing up in the writer’s room today. You came to the right place.”
