Some say love, it is a river 
And that it drowns the tender reed
And some say love, it's like a razor 
And that it leaves your soul to bleed 
Some say love, it is a hunger

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 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 snows
Lies the seed, that with the sun's love
In the spring, becomes the rose
