Song 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 the chance

It's the one who wont 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 snow
Lies the seed, that with the sun's love
In the spring, becomes the rose

* offtopic :

Has anybody seen the movie 'Hocus Pocus'?
It is a Disney Movie starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy and of course Bette Midler. Its about three sisters who are witches and are brought back from the dead by three kids on Haloween Night. However the witches need to suck the lives out of children and the spell that brought them back only lasts for one night. It is such an awesome movie, its so funny! All three witches are so cool and Bette Midler does a magnificent job playing the lead witch- Winifred! Go Bette Go!
One of my favourite movies of all time! I love the remake of 'I put a spell on you', its so awesome- and Bette does it so well.

'And what is that dude?'

I had heard people talk about the Rose and say what a nice song it is. Just Recently they played 'The Rose' the movie on television so I decided to watch it. Although I only watch the last 1/3 of the movie it still truly touched my heart. Its so sad. The Rose is such a nice song. Its more than nice, its beautiful. And Bette Midler Sings it beautifully. She is so awesome!

So remember, that in the winter
Far beneath, the bitter snow
Lies the seed, that with the suns love
In the spring, becomes the Rose....
