I realize the way your eyes deceived me,
With tender looks that I mistook for love.
So take away the flowers that you gave me
And send the kind that you remind me of.

Paper roses, paper roses;
Oh how real those roses seem to be.
But they're only imitation,
Like your imitation love for me.

I thought that you would be a perfect lover;
You seemed so full of sweetness at the start.
But like a big red rose that's made of paper,
There isn't any sweetness in your heart.

(Repeat Refrain:)


Like your imitation love for me.
