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 it's only seed.
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.
