"Roses" is the fourteenth track on the deluxe version of Illuminate.

Lyrically, Shawn is questioning a girl’s love for her. The girl, according to the song lyrics, already has a significant other. But, he likes her, and she has dropped a few hints that maybe suggests she, too likes him. He isn’t trying to mess up her relationship with her current significant other, but just wants to know if she, too, loves him back. He is sure his love for her is greater than her current significant other, so he is giving her this “rose”, which is a chance for their love to blossom and flourish into something beautiful, like a rose.

LyricsEdit

It's not that I'm afraid I'm not enough for her
It's not that I can't find the words to say
But when she's with him, she seems happier
And I don't want to take that away

How many times can I see your face?
How many times will you walk away?
I just have to let you know

I'm not tryna start a fire, with this flame
But I'm worried that your heart might feel the same
And I have to be honest with you baby
Tell me If I'm wrong, and this is crazy
But I got you this rose
And I need to know
Will you let it die or let it grow?
Die or let it go?

It's not that I don't care about the love you have
It's not that I don't want to see you smile
But there's no way that he can feel the same
'cause when I think of you my mind goes wild

How many times can I see your face?
How many times will you walk away?
I just have to let you know

I'm not tryna start a fire, with this flame
But I'm worried that your heart might feel the same
And I have to be honest with you baby
Tell me If I'm wrong, and this is crazy
But I got you this rose
And I need to know
Will you let it die or let it grow?

You can tell me stop, if you already know
Though I'm not sure my heart can take it
But the look on your face says, don't let me go

I'm not tryna start a fire, with this flame
But I'm worried that your heart might feel the same
And I have to be honest with you baby
Tell me If I'm wrong, and this is crazy
But I got you this rose
And I need to know
Will you let it die or let it go?
I'm not tryna start a fire, with this flame
But I'm worried that your heart might feel the same
And I have to be honest with you baby
Tell me If I'm wrong, and this is crazy
But I got you this rose
And I need to know
Will you let it die or let it grow?
