Peter: ♪ 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 ♪

Everyone: ♪ 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 ♪

Peter: ♪ 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 ♪
