This bitter earth
Well, what a fruit it bears
This bitter earth

And if my life is like the dust
Ooh, that hides
The glow of a rose
What good am I?
Heaven only knows

Lord, this bitter earth
Yes, can be so cold
Today you're young
Too soon, you're old

But while a voice within me cries
I'm sure someone may answer my call
And this bitter earth
Ooh, may not
Oh, be so bitter after all

This bitter earth
Lord, this bitter earth
What good is love
Mmm, that no one shares?

And if my life is like the dust
Ooh, that hides
The glow of a rose
What good am I?
Heaven only knows
