Bette Midler

The Rose

Some say love, it is a river
That drowns the tender reed 
Some say love, it is razor
That leaves your soul to bleed 
Some say love, it is a hunger
An endless aching need 
I say love, it is a flower
And you its only seed 

It's the heart afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance 
Its the dream afraid of waking
That never takes the chance 
It's the one who won't be taken
Who cannot seem to give 
And the soul afraid of dying
That never learns to live 

When the night has been too lonely
And the road has been too long 
And you think that love is only
For the lucky and the strong 
Just remember in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snows 
Lies the seed that with the sun's love
In the spring becomes the rose
