      About "Smell The Roses"

      Lyrics for Natasha Bedingfield - "Smell The Roses"

      I've been livin' in a room without windows
      Away from the sun, no oxygen
      I couldn't tell if it was day or night
      Away from the sun, growing nowhere fast
      Rushing along on the pavement
      Don't even look at the people's faces, going places

      When an old man said stop
      You nearly stepped on a flower
      Growing through the cracks
      And you didn't even notice

      [Chorus]
      Wake up smell the roses
      Life is happening and you don't know it
      Wake up, take a moment
      Grab it in your hands... and own it

      I realize our love is like that flower
      Been neglecting the thing most precious to me
      You've been talking but I haven't been listening
      The static in the noise been drowning you out
      I so wanna be in the future
      That I keep tripping

      Over my own shoe laces
      In these human races
      And I'm brought back to now
      And the volume goes down
      There's peace in his words as loud as a shout sayin'

      [Chorus]

      He says

      [Chorus]

      Like your birthday I forgot
      I was with you
      But I was not... really there
      Snap your fingers, that's your life
      Not gonna let it pass my by no
      When an old man said stop
      You nearly stepped on a flower
      Growing
      Through the cracks
      And you didn't even notice

      [Chorus]
