The Rose – Cover by Jenny Hatch

The Rose – Cover by Jenny Hatch

I memorized this classic song in the 7th grade and it has been a strength to me ever since.

I bought some new sound equipment for my birthday and have been playing around with it. You can definitely hear my oxygen concentrator in the background, but I felt like it still captured the song pretty well.

I am looking forward to the day when I own my own recording studio and can pay a technician to get the sound quality just right.

This is the best I could do with what I have now. The karyoke track provided me with some killer harmonies.

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 too long
And you think that love is only
For the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed that with the sun’s love
In the spring becomes the rose
