Song Lyrics

The Rose

As sung by Bette Midler Music and Lyrics by Amanda McBroom Copyright © 1978 by Bette Midler, Amanda McBroom. All Rights Reserved.from the movie, The Rose
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 its 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.

The Rose: Soundtrack. Amanda McBroom, Bette Midler 

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.
