There's reason for all this worlds goodness, There's reason for ev'rything bad, there's reason for us to know gladness, And reason sometimes to feel sad, The love that we bear has a meaning, That loved ones can understand best, Ev'ry thing in this life, ev'ry care, ev'ry strife, Was meant to be put to the test.
A child was just made to grow older, Troubles were made to be missed, Arms were just made for caressing, And lips were just made to be kissed, A heart was just made to grow tender, A rain drop to fall from above, A boy was just made for a girlie, and a girlie was just made to love. A child was just made to grow older, Troubles were made to be missed, Arms were just made for caressing, And lips were just made to be kissed, A heart was just made to grow tender, A rain drop to fall from above, A boy was just made for a girlie, and a girlie was just made to love.
To ev'ry heart bowed down with sadness, To ev'ry heart pining each day, Sometimes there will come bits of gladness, To drive thoughts of sorrow away, sweetness that comes unexpected Tastes sweeter than ever before, And the troubles we bear, ffade away into air, And make life worth living the more.
