Bette Midler - The Rose Chords

[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
          Em            Am
Some say love, it is a hunger,
      F     Dm7    G
An endless aching need
       C              G
I say love, it is a flower and
 F        G    C
You its 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 the chance
         Em                Am     Am7
It's the one who won't be taken
      F     Dm7     G
Who cannot seem to give
        C                G
And the soul afraid of dying
      F     G         C
That never learns to live

[verse 3]
          C                   G
When the night has been too lonely
         F        G         C
And the road has been too long
          C                G
And you think that love is only
         F      G        C
For the lucky and the strong
      Em              Am
Just remember in the winter
      F                G     Gsus4
Far beneath the bitter snow
          C                  G
Lies the seed that with the sun's love,
         F        G         C
In the spring becomes the rose
