The Rose (LP Version) Lyrics

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
