	  		                 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         D              
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.
