Year: 1980 - Album: Jackpot - The Best Bette
C G F G C Some say love, it is a river that drowns the tender reed. C G F G C Some say love, it is a razor that leaves your soul to bleed. Cmaj7 F Dm G Some say love, it is a hunger, an endless aching need. C G F G C I say love, it is a flower and you its only seed. C G F G C It's the heart afraid of breakin' that never learns to dance. C G F G C It's the dream afraid of wakin' that never takes a chance. Em Am7 F G It's the ones who won't be taken who cannot seem to give C G F G C And the soul afraid of dyin' that never learns to live. C G F G C When the night has been too lonely and the road has been too long C G F G C And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong, Em Am7 F G Just remember in the winter, far beneath the bitter snows C G F G C Lies the seed that, with the sun's love, in the spring becomes the rose.
