Al Deze Rozen Mag je Houden
Marianne Weber Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Al deze rozen mag je houden
Ik heb liever dat je nu gaat
Jou kan ik niet vertrouwen
Het is te laat

Ik heb genoeg van al jouw woorden
Zelfs die rozen helpen jou niet
Het boek is nu gesloten
Heb geen verdriet

Ik heb je steeds een kans gegeven
En nu zeg je dat het je spijt
Maar ik laat niet met me spelen
Ik ben dat warme gevoel voor je kwijt

Al deze rozen mag je houden
Ik heb liever dat je nu gaat
Jou kan ik niet vertrouwen
Het is te laat

Al deze rozen mag je houden
Ik heb liever dat je nu gaat
Jou kan ik niet vertrouwen
Het is te laat





Jou kan ik niet vertrouwen
Het is te laat

Overall Meaning

In the lyrics of Marianne Weber's song "Al deze rozen mag je houden," the singer is expressing her decision to end a relationship and move on from someone she can no longer trust. By offering to let the other person keep all the roses, she symbolically shows her desire to detach herself from the past and part ways. The repetition of the line "Ik heb liever dat je nu gaat" emphasizes her strong conviction to end things and move forward.


The lyrics suggest that the singer has become disillusioned with the other person's words and actions. Despite receiving gestures like roses, she no longer finds them comforting or meaningful. The metaphor of closing the book signifies the finality of the situation and her resolve to turn the page and start anew. She advises the other person not to feel sadness over the breakup since she has already made up her mind.


The singer conveys that she had given the other person multiple chances before, but now she refuses to continue being manipulated or taken for granted. The apology from the other party comes too late as she has reached a point where she no longer feels the warm emotions she once had for them. Her decision to walk away reflects her empowerment and refusal to be played with or deceived any longer.


The repeated lines "Al deze rozen mag je houden" and "Jou kan ik niet vertrouwen, Het is te laat" reinforce the singer's determination to end the relationship and underline the irreparable breach of trust that has occurred. By emphasizing that it is too late to regain her trust, she communicates her firm boundaries and unwillingness to be swayed by empty promises. The song captures the emotions of disappointment, betrayal, and ultimately, the strength to let go and move on from a toxic relationship.

Al deze rozen mag je houden
I no longer want any of these roses that you give me


Ik heb liever dat je nu gaat
I would prefer it if you left now


Jou kan ik niet vertrouwen
I cannot trust you


Het is te laat
It is too late


Ik heb genoeg van al jouw woorden
I am tired of all your words


Zelfs die rozen helpen jou niet
Even those roses do not help you


Het boek is nu gesloten
The book is now closed


Heb geen verdriet
Do not be sad


Ik heb je steeds een kans gegeven
I have always given you a chance


En nu zeg je dat het je spijt
And now you say that you are sorry


Maar ik laat niet met me spelen
But I will not let you play with me


Ik ben dat warme gevoel voor je kwijt
I have lost that warm feeling for you
