All Of The Thorns (Live)
All Of The Thorns
Bryan Poirier, Manitou Passage Music, ASCAP ©2007

All of the thorns and none of the rose
Sometimes that's just how life goes
Sooner or later something will grow
All of the thorns and none of the rose
All of the thorns and none of the rose

Repeat Chorus

Stay true to faith
Even though they try to break you down
Don't play it safe
Push ahead and make your world go round
Destiny's in your hands
Go on and make a big plan


They'll all say no
It can't happen for a kid like you
Just let it go
But, heaven knows the things that you will do
Be open to creation
No time for hesitation


Instrumental Break

Chorus - acapella (up a whole step)

Repeat Chorus
All of the thorns and none of the rose

Short Song Description:
The result of a bad day, I was feeling fairly hostile. Skulking around, I said, "Man, I'm getting all of the thorns and none of the rose." Ah ha! A song is born!!!
Long Song Description:
The song is much more optimistc than the day was. At least I got a good song out of it. It's upbeat and no one dies - two rarieties for a power folk trio.
