Winter rose (live)

from by Ruby Bamboo



Who am I to question you
And what you think and feel is true
We see the world through different eyes
A different view of wrong and right

But each day we can start a new
And if we're strong we will break through
Our pre-conceptions of this life
And broken patterns that keep us tied

And the truth will be revealed
A truth that life tries to conceal
And against the odds it grows
A stubborn love
A winter rose

Seeds we plant begin to show
Our flowers blooming in the snow
Red on white defies the season
Like our love that needs no reason

It Just needs to be revealed
A love that life tries to conceal
And against the odds it grows
A stubborn love
A winter rose

And through the war we learn to pray
For the peace we all know we crave
And in our silence we'll shout out loud
The whole world will hear us now

Because our voice can't be concealed
'Cause it's the right time to reveal
How against the odds we grow
A stubborn love
A winter rose
