Have you ever been up Have you ever been down Have you ever been lost Have you ever been found Have you ever been right Have you ever been wrong Have you come up short Can you come along Have you left a mark Have you left alone Have you seen the way Can you come back home Short stories Babe just take what they will give Short stories That's all it's ever been Don't you worry 'bout the ending Babe, before we begin I have seen the sun That's behind the rain I have felt the joy That's behind the pain Did you ever go soft Did you ever run wild I've been a hundred years old I been a newborn child I have found a smile in the midst of tears I can find a heart in the midst of fear Don't you know I need you near me Or my happy ending's gone And I see now so very clearly That our story must go on And on! If I give myself Can I ask for you If I give you hope Can we make it through You know I need a dream Like I need my breath We need to take the life Before we get the death You know I need your love Like I need the light Yes I need the chance Can it be tonight?
