Some say [F]love it is a [C]river That [Bb]drowns the tender [F]reed
Some say [F]love it is a [C]razor That [Bb]leaves your soul to [F]bleed
Some say [Am]love it is a [Dm]hunger An [Bb]endless aching [C]need
I say [F]love it is a [C]flower And [Bb]you it''''s only [F]seed
It''''s the [F]heart afraid of [C]breaking That [Bb]never learns to [F]dance
It''''s the [F]dream afraid of [C]waking That [Bb]never takes the [F]chance
It''''s the [Am]one who won''''t be [Dm]taken Who [Bb]cannot seem to [C]give
And the [F]soul afraid of [C]dying That [Bb]never learns to [F]live
And the [F]night has been too [C]lonely And the [Bb]road has been too [F]long.
And you [F]think that love is [C]only For the [Bb]lucky and the [F]strong.
Just [Am]remember in the [Dm]winter Far [Bb]beneath the bitter [C]snow
Lies the [F]seed that with the [C]sun''''s love, In the [Bb]spring, becomes a [F]rose
