You haven't begin to live until you almost die,
you can't really begin to smile until you learn to cry.
You can't know how to be happy until you learn to be sad,
you can't know how not to be had until you have been had.

Happiness will never for you show,
until soul deep sadness you have come to know.
Now, you won't know there is evil,
until you admit there is a devil.

Until you know God is real,
then with hell you will have to deal.
Yes, you must know how to play,
if you want to have fun today.

Yes, to know how to love, first you have to know how to hurt,
your heart must have been broken to know love's worth.
To know true love, first you must know hate,
to be able to have a want or a need first you must learn how to wait.

To know the warmth of the sun,
through the rain you must learn to run.
For a smile to ever be found,
first you have got to frown.

To know how to dance,
you have to learn to take a chance.
To enjoy laughing, you must know how to cry,
and once more to begin to live, you must almost die.
