The Rose Lyrics

The Rose - Bette Midler


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 waking


That never takes a chance


It's the one who won't be taken


Who cannot seem to give


And the soul afraid of dyin'


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
