When it begins and when it ends,
Your enemies will be your friends.
And when it comes and when it goes,
Time will have your life to show,
So make it something you wish to know.
And with what love gives and takes,
Your heart may break,
But if you believe in the life you make,
Your chance will have no fate,
Because when time brings you tears and endless fears,
Remember that beyond them something good is always near.
But when the darkness has blinded you of all your sight,
Remember that beyond it there is always light.
And with it remember that this is your life,
And not theirs,
So always believe in yourself enough not to care,
About what others will have about you to share,
And even when they've left you behind,
Trust that in time,
You'll make it there.
