When nothing seems to be going right
Don't lose focus
Don't take your eyes off the prize
Just believe
That everything happens for a reason

That just because two people argue
Doesn't mean they don't love each other
It just makes their relationship that much stronger

That everyone changes
Friends are going to come
And friends are going to leave
You've just got to take it as it comes

The friendship between two people
Will always grow
No matter the distance between them

That no matter what the ups and downs are in life
They will make you a stronger, better person
And they will help you become the person you want to be

That no matter what happens
Or how we feel
We are responsible for everything we do

That there will be people
You expect to kick you when you're down
But they're the people
Who are going to help you back to your feet
The world we live in ... is a strange place

That when you think you can't give anymore
When a friend cries out in need
There's always a part of you
That gives a little more
And finds the strength to help

That the best of everything
Doesn't come to the happiest of people
They just make the most of what they've got

Just believe
That everything happens for a reason
