It’s the heart afraid of breaking that never learns to dance.
It’s the dream afraid of waking that never takes the chance.
It’s the one who won’t be taken, who can not 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.
