The Rose
Bette Midler 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, its 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 soul afraid of dying, 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

I never knew lyrics could describe me so well until I heard those words

I don’t want to live, and yet I’m too scared to let myself die

Right now, I bear through everything for those who may need me

I’m 17, I sleep with a fucking Teddy bear because I don’t want to feel alone, I act happy because I don’t want people to see me sad, I pretend to love life because I want to convince myself that I don’t want death

17, and I’m feeling all of this, after years of bullying to near suicide, abuse leading to considering running away, loneliness that led to a fear which drove people away

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, its 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 soul afraid of dying, 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

To complete the cycle, it must played the day you'll die.
If possible, when you die, at the very moment.
Then... the tape of time will go backward until the flash.
Then... You'll see ;)

That song sang by your mother at birth is a BIG PART
of residual time energies. So much emotions frozen in time
with this song as background. (Trying to explain what will
happen after the flash without telling you the direct answer,
it must be discovered by the concerned person. In that case; you.)

Good point that you shared back the melody/song to your mother.
1st, the link between her and you and 2nd the possitive energies
of the song/melody. Hope she got better.

Even though, I get the Eminem song reference. That is a quote I will keep forever in my heart. It really hits me in the feels.

My mom would play this on the piano every once and a while as I grew up. She passed away a few weeks ago at 49. I'm 19 and completely lost without her. I've been practicing this song on the piano so that I can keep that small part of her with me.
