Intro:  C/C  (pluck ¼-note chords)
          C             G/B
Some say love, it is a river
      F/A        G/B    C
That drowns the tender reed
      C/G C             G/B
Some say love, it is a razor
      F/A         G/B      C
That leaves your soul to bleed
         Em/B          Am
Some say love it is a hunger
      F/G          G
An endless aching need
       C             G/B
I say love it is a flower
    F/A      G    C/G
And You its only seed

(timpani)  C               G/B
It's the heart afraid of breaking
      F/A    G/B      C
That never learns to dance
(timpani)C/G C            G/B
It's the dream afraid of waking
      F/A   G/B      C
That never takes a chance
(ooh’s)  Em/B              Am
It's the one, who won't be taken
      F/G           G
Who cannot seem to give
(quietly) C             G/B
And the soul afraid of dying
     F/A    G        C/G
That never learns to live

(rock it)  C                 G/B
When the night has been too lonely
         F/A     G/B       C
And the road has been too long
     C/G  C                G/B
And you think that love is only
         F/A    G/B     C
For the lucky and the strong
(quiet) Em/B          Am
Just remember in the winter
(rock it) F/G           G-Gsus
Far beneath the bitter snow
(quiet)   C                  G/B
Lies the seed that with the sun's love,
(rock it) F/A    G/B       C
In the spring becomes the rose

When bass note is shown, ie x/B, barre at that fret on the E-string.
When it isn't shown, it's the same as the chord.  Still barre there.
So, the song is mostly at C barred at the 8th fret.
