Some say [C]love, it is a [G7]river, that [F]drowns the [G]tender [C]reed
Some say [C]love, it is a ra[G7]zor, that [F]leads your [G]soul to [C]bleed
Some say [Cmaj7]love it is a [F]hunger, and endless aching [G7]need
I say [C]love it is a [G]flower and [F]you its only [C]seed
It's the [C]heart afraid of [G7]breaking that [F]never [G]learns to [C]dance
It's the [C]dream afraid of [G7]waking that [F]never [G]takes a [C]chance
It's the [Em]one, who won't be [Am7]taken who [F]cannot seem to [G]give
And the [C]soul afraid of [G]dying that [F]never [G]learns to [C]live
When the [C]night has been too [G7]lonely and the [F]road has [G]been too [C]long
And you [C]find that love is [G7]only for the [F]lucky [G]and the [C]strong
Just re[Em]member in the [Am7]winter for 'n[F]eath the bitter [G]snow
Lies the [C]seed that with the [G]sun's love, in the [F]spring be[G]comes the [C]rose
. Midler Bette lyrics
Some say love, it is a river
that drowns the tender reed.
Some say love, it is a razor
that leaves your sould 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 won't be taken,
who cannot seem to give,
and the sould afraid of dyin'
that never learns to live.
When the night has been too lonely
and the road has been to long,
and you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong,
just remember in the winter
far beneath the winter snows
lies the seed that with the sun's love
in the spring becomes the rose.
