    "The Rose" 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 wont 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 snow
    Lies the seed, that with the sun's love
    In the spring, becomes the rose
