Lyrics
If you're down and confused
And you don't remember who you're talkin' to
Concentration slip away
'Cause your baby is so far away.

Well, there's a rose in a fisted glove
And the eagle flies with the dove
And if you can't be with the one you love
Love the one you're with

Love the one you're with
Don't be angry, don't be sad,
Don't sit cryin' over good things you've had,
There's a girl right next to you

And she's just waiting for something you do.
Well, there's a rose in a fisted glove
And the eagle flies with the dove
And if you can't be with the one you love

Love the one you're with
Love the one you're with
Turn your heartache right into joy
She's a girl, you're a boy,

Get it together make it nice
Ain't gonna need anymore advice.
Well, there's a rose in a fisted glove
And the eagle flies with the dove

And if you can't be with the one you love
Love the one you're with
Love the one you're with
