[Intro]
C        F         C         F


[Verse 1]
          C            G
Some say love, it is a river,
     F            G      C
That drowns, the tender reed.
          C            G 
Some say love, it is a razor,
     F      G              C
That leaves, your soul to bleed.
         Am              F
Some say Love... it is a hunger,
                    G
An endless, acheing need.
       C              G
I say love, it is a Flower,
   F          G    C
& You... it's only seed.

[Verse 2]
         C                 G
It's the heart, afraid of breaking,
     F     G         C
That never, learns to dance.
         C               G
It's the dream, afraid of waking,
      F      G     C      
That never, takes a chance.
        Am                  F
It's the one... who won't be taken,
   F               G
Who can not seem to give.
     C               G
& the soul, afraid of dying,
    Am     G        C
Will never, learn to live.

[Verse 3]
        C                   G
When the night, has been to lonley,
     F     G            C
& the road, has been to long.
      C                 G
& You feel, that love is only,
       F      G     C
For the lucky, & the strong.

[Outro]
      Am               F
Just remember... in the winter,
      F                 G         
Far beneathe, the bitter snow...
        C
Lies the seed,
             G
That with the Sun's love,
      F       G
In the spring...
             C
Becomes The Rose.
