The Rose (Album Version)


Some say love

It is a river


That drowns the tender reed


Some say love

It is a 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 it's only seed


It's the heart

Afraid of breaking

That never learns to dance


It's the dream

Afraid of walking

That never takes the chance


It's the one

Who won't be taken


Who can not 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

For beneath the bitter snow


Lies the seed

That with the sun's love

In the spring

Becomes the rose
