the rose
music & lyrics: 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 the chance
it's the one who won't be taken
who can not seem to give
and the soul afraid of dyin'
that never learn to live

when the night has been too 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 snow
lies the seed that with the sun's love
in the spring becomes a rose
