Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

The saddest word you'll ever hear
The saddest word you’ll ever hear

They say that if you never try
Then you will never know
You’ll never know how good you are
How far that you can go

But if you never even try
Then you will never lose
You can try or just lay back
Well, which one will you choose?

You’ll have to figure what to do
‘Cause this is your big chance
Will you step out on the floor
Or never get to dance?

And if you do go all the way
And give it your best shot
There is a chance that you’ll succeed
A bigger chance you’ll not

So maybe you’ll fall short this time
And not achieve your goal
And if you fail at what you tried
You’ll pay a hefty toll

But if you almost do it all
If you almost win
At least you did the best you could
So face it with a grin

Not everyone can win the race
Or claim the highest prize
But if you gave it all you had
You’re golden in my eyes

The sweetest word you’ll ever hear
