All the minutes, hours, days and years
I've passed along the way
Have led me to this place
That I am standin' in today
I never thought I'd make it here
I never thought I'd stay
But I am glad I've lived this long
Because now I can say...

It's better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all
How sorry I would be today
If I hadn't ever tried at all
Yeah, it's better to have loved and lost
Than never to have known
The heartbreak and the ecstasy
That I have called my own
Yeah, I have called my own

Sometimes I wish I could go back
To my younger days
When love was just a fantasy
A lark along the way
And old was just a term we used
About those other folks
And never was the kind of word
That we never spoke

Every day I think about
All those that I have known
The ones I fell in love with
The ones I left alone
The girls who wouldn't look at me
And those who made me glad
Cause love has made me happy
More times than I've been sad
