The Rose Lyrics

Been busy the past weeks with life, work, law school... Just wanted to share this song with a very heart warming message.

The Rose (lyrics)
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.

It's the heart, afraid of breaking,
That never learns to dance.
It's the dream, afraid of waking,
That never takes a 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.
-Written by Amanda McBroom
The song lyrics are centered on the idea that people are so afraid of failing
– be it in life, in love, or in other aspects of life – that they never truly learn to live.
