365 Days, Day 66

The Rose

As sung by Bette Midler Music and Lyrics by Amanda McBroom Copyright © 1978 by Bette Midler, Amanda McBroom. All Rights Reserved.from the movie,

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 a chance.

It's the one who won't 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 snows,

Lies the seed, that with the sun's love, in the spring becomes

The Rose.

Flying from London Heathrow tonight - to Johannesburg International


  1. Have a safe flight, can't wait to see you.

  2. I will play this for you on guitar and sing it for you if you like - while you are here??

  3. God bless you and watch over you my fiend xx
