Loss & Gain - Lyric

 

Refrain

For every loss there is a gain,

Iím proof of that standiní here now.

You wanna know how I came to this?

Give a listen and Iíll tell you how.

 

First you take all your futile resentment

And throw it into the fire.

Then you stash away all of your fears

And forget they ever had power.

Toss all your hate in and throw the lid down.

Gather your doubt and then trash it.

Next dry your eyes and look to the sky.

Take stock of all your lifeís assets.

 

Refrain

And the whole world will open right up,

As sure as here I am standiní.

Hey give it a try, you got nothiní but gain.

Itíll happen because youíre commandiní.

 

Put all your envy where it belongs,

Down the garbage disposal.

Ward off your sadness and sense of loss

With a warning proposal.

Stuff all your anger and wishes to harm

In a burning incinerator,

Laugh at the wasting disease of shame

And never return to it later.

 

Refrain

And the whole world will open right up,

As sure as here I am standiní.

Hey give it a try, you got nothiní but gain.

Itíll happen because youíre commandiní.
