Barbra Streisand – The Rose lyrics

Some say love, it is a river, that drowns the tender reed
Some say love, it is a razor, that leads your soul to bleed
Some say love, it is a hunger, and 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 chanceIt's the one, who won't be taken who can not seem to give
And the soul afraid of dying that never learns to live

When the night has been to lonely and the road has been to longAnd 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.
