The Rose by Bette Midler

Some say (1)________ it is a river
That (2)____________ the (3)____________ reed
Some say love it is a razor
that (4)____________ your (5)________ to bleed

Some say love it is a hunger
an endless (6)____________ need
I say (7)________ it is a flower
and you its (8)________ seed

It's the (9)__________ (10)____________ of breaking
that never (11)____________ to dance
It's the dream (12)____________ of waking
that (13)__________ (14)__________ the chance

It's the one who won't be taken
who cannot seem to give
and the (15)________ afraid of dyin'
that (16)__________ learns to live

When the (17)__________ has been too lonely
and the (18)________ has been too long
and you (19)__________ that love is only
for the lucky and the strong

Just remember in the winter
far beneath the (20)____________ snows
lies the seed (21)________ with the sun's love
in the spring becomes the rose
