Man is born to understand
Destiny is in his hands
Life becomes the gift that
Guides the dream
All around you everywhere
Time erodes, it rips and tears
Cloaks the thread and hides
Away the key

From the dawning of creation
To the twilight of the world
When you hear it ring
It tolls for thee
Every face of every nation
Waits to watch the flag unfold
You alone know what
Her name will be

Every man must fight to know
The name of the rose
Then you'll hold her close eternally
Each one has the right to know
The name of the rose
Deep inside you know
The name of the rose

Cross the lands of ice and snow
Follow where the four winds blow
Search the skies and all
That lies beneath
Walk the sun burnt desert plains
Beaten by it's anvil rays
One crusade to justify belief

Every man must fight to know
The name of the rose
Then you'll hold her close eternally
Each one has the right to know
The name of the rose
Then you'll know how much
Her name can mean

Only then your heart will show
The key

Only when you seek, you find her
Like a summer breeze reminder
Slowly something stirs the soul
To breathe
Then if you believe you'll find her
Like a memory but kinder
The lovers timeless reach returns
The key
Happy to disclose
The name of the rose

You call my name don't wonder why
You fan the flames that never dies
You trust my ways you never die
You call my name it's justified
You're in my veins you sacrifice
I'm not afraid to give you life
