"BETTER TO HAVE LOVED AND LOST"

Intro:
I was so deeply in love,
A love that was so strong.
I felt nothing could go wrong,
But now he's gone away.
I wipe the tears from my eyes
And in my heart I'm thankful,
Because now I realize:

Chorus:
It's better to have loved and lost
-Than never to have loved at all.
When memories are sweet
But dreams have not come true,
Just having loved makes it worth it all.
Just having loved makes it worth it all.

And the tears you cry,
You'll find they help you see,
And a broken heart
Can teach you many things.
Like the morning sun,
After the darkest night,
Love will rise again
And warm you with its li-ght!

[Repeat chorus]

Each moment sharing love
Is worth a thousand tears.
Don't be afraid to lose,
Don't hold back your heart in fear.
Just open up your life,
Freely give and you'll receive,
And you can start again
If in love you will belie-ve.

Chorus:
It's better to have loved and lost
-Than never to have loved at all.
When memories are sweet
But dreams have not come true,
Just having loved makes it worth it all.

Chorus:
It's better to have loved and lost
-Than never to have loved at all.
When memories are sweet
But dreams have not come true,
Just having loved makes it worth it all.
Just having loved makes it worth it all.
