5th Day: The Rose

On the 5th day of Christmas my true love gave to me :"THE ROSE" (by Ken Hirai, 平井堅).

It was in a Taiwanese drama that I first heard this song, and immediately I fell in love with it.. There are many renditions by various artists, but I like the one sung by Ken Hirai.. 

The Rose
written by Amanda McBroom

Some say love, it is a river
that drowns the tender reed.
Some say love, it is a razor
that leaves your soul to bleed.
Some say love, it is a hunger,
an endless aching need.
I say love, it is a flower,
and you its only seed.

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 cannot 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 to 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.
