Title: Nothing Ventured Nothing Gained



Wish I could say that I didn't know If we held on too tight or just let it all go Thinking maybe we'd profit from time spent alone We must have been crazy back then

I remember the words you said as you left What you've done I could never forgive or forget But inside I was hoping, despite all your regret That maybe we'd finish as friends

I guess it's all true, you know what they say You don't know what you've got 'till you've thrown it away When nothing is ventured, nothing is gained But some things cannot be so easily explained

Looking back now it's so easy to see If I'd just stood by you and you'd just stood by me That together we'd weather all life's stormy seas With each other for a captain and crew

And for all of that time we've invested in love You might have thought we could rise above all of this stuff But what we got in return wasn't nearly enough To keep us from singing the blues

I guess it's all true, you know what they say You don't know what it's worth 'till you've thrown it away

I guess it's all true, you know what they say You don't know what you've got 'till you've thrown it away When nothing is ventured, nothing is gained But some things cannot be so easily explained

They say all wounds are healed by the graces of time And that lonely is only a state of mind Still I wish you were walking right here by my side To have and to hold 'till the day that I die

I guess it's all true, you know what they say You don't know what you've got 'till you've thrown it away
