"The Rose" by Bette Midler

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

It's the heart afraid of breaking,
that never learns to dance
It's the dream afraid of waking,
that never takes the chance
It's the one who one be taken,
who cannot seem to give
And the soul,
afraid of dying,
that never learns to live

When the night has been to lonely
And the road has been to 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
