Williams, Don - The Rose Lyrics




Some say love it is a river
that drowns the tender reed
Some say love it is a razer
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 it's 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 dying
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

    God how I miss seeing this wonderful Man, Don please sing to all those in Heaven that loved you down here . I still, play your music and I'll always Love you for the man you were and your standards . Allura.

  3. YANIL GHEMI

    It's also the heart that people want to break once and again that ends to trust only in God, and to love Him above all the things. And it finalizes to love Him and the others sithout fear. For grace, because I know Him, I'm afraid of nothing

  10. Loretta Russell

    took my breath away.

  11. Marguerite Hughes

    Great version of the song.

  12. Cirlei Fajardo

    SER ROSA...

    Precisamos lembrar
    que somos Rosas
    todos nós...
    Exalamos um perfume delicioso
    E todos gostam de
    vislumbrar a beleza da flor...
    Mas também temos espinhos...
    E ninguém gosta
    de ser ferido por um deles...
    Já disseram que as Rosas choram...
    Com certeza sim...
    Mas se eu tiver que escolher um dia...
    Ainda sim, escolherei ser Rosa...
    Ser flor...
    Mesmo que eu tenha espinhos...
    Ser Rosa...
    Ser um lindo Jardim...
    Aceitar docilmente que o jardineiro
    cuide das folhas caídas e
    providencie a poda dos galhos...
    Aceitar a terra fresca e úmida...
    A água que vem do céu
    em forma de chuva...
    O Sol tocando cada folha minha...
    Viver cada estação...
    Sem pressa de que
    o Tempo passe rapidamente...
    Ficar dormente...
    Florescer...
    Tudo no seu devido
    e necessário Tempo.

    I'm not about to put down Bette Midler for her rendition of this wonderful piece. She was, as usual fantastic. But Don has been a favorite of mine for 50+ years, since he was with Pozo Seco Singers.

  70. ruth edwards

    just beautiful

  71. Klasse Marty

    Unfortunately I have to say that Don's voice is rather bad in this one. He's quite nasal in the higher notes. Newer renditions of other songs are better.

    mukesh dogra

    you stand no where to point out nuances in his singing.....his voice was, is and shall forever be eternal....just listen n feel your soul.....

    DON HAS A WONDERFUL VOICE AND I THINK IF HIM AND MIDLER SANG THE. " THE ROSE " TOGETHER IT WOULD BE MAGICALLY

    motormouth155

    @Paula Roberts To be honest I love listening to both sing any song will do me .Their voices are magical . Together maybe even better and it can be done in this day and age. Even Elvis and Frankie Sinatra are still doing concerts..lol

    WOW! Never heard Don sing this one before. Listened to it 3 times. So nice to see the lyrics too as I'm partially deaf. He is one of my all time favorites. I saw him in person many years ago in Branson at the Charlie Pride Theater. He was so casual and charming. Of course he sang great too! Thanks Folowins!
