Have you ever wanted to dry a tear
that you knew you had made fall?
Have you ever said something
that you never meant at all?
Have you ever stopped to realize
that time slips by too fast?
Have you ever held back a question
that you really wanted to know?
Have you ever wanted to reach out
to someone who was in pain?
Have you ever wanted to give sunshine
to someone who lives with rain?
Have you ever wanted a chance
to go back and change the past?
Have you ever loved somebody
and never told them so?
Have you ever felt you might explode
from holding stuff inside?
That's when you have to make a choice
between happiness or pride.
