Sometimes it takes, feeling a shove
To realize what it's like to be in love

Sometimes it takes, falling down a hole
To understand how you feel in your soul

Sometimes it takes, losing a friend
To realize there was nothing left to mend

Sometimes it takes, taking a leap
To realize the benefits you have to reap

Sometimes it takes, being shaken to the core
To realize how good you had it before

Sometimes it takes, wearing the other shoe
To conclude in life what you need to do

Sometimes it takes, locking your heart
To realize you'll never spend time apart

Sometimes it takes, making a wish
To get your very own Cinderella kiss

Sometimes it takes, crying for days
To clear your heart and clear the haze

Sometimes it takes, everything disappearing
To keep your chin up and keep persevering

Sometimes it takes, sitting on the back burner
To understand a lesson and become a learner

Sometimes it takes, loosening your chain
To realize what you have left to gain

Sometimes it takes, making a change to you
To realize how horrible the thing is that you're holding onto

Sometimes it takes, going head over heels
To know how good love really feels

Sometimes it takes, getting up from a fall
To realize you hadn't fallen at all

Sometimes...
