The Rose
by Bette Midler

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 ws pregnant w/my youngest son when the movis came out. I used to sit by the stereo when this played when he was kicking the tar out of me, and he would settle down. After his birth in Oct. 1980, he would immediately settle down when we played this-if a newborn can love a song -he did. When he was killed at age 17 by a driver running a light, we played it at his wake. I wish I could tell Bette Midler what an enormous effect her one song had on a young boy from the beginning to the end.

@Sam Alfordo ah yes. the mentality where "i disagree with you, hence you're insane, need help, and needs to fuck off"
