Nothin' Ventured Nothin' Gained

I went out for a walk one evening
Feeling low, I just didn’t care
Saw an old man standing on a park bench
Waving his arms up in the air
I said: “What in the world do you think you’re doing?”
He said: “I’m warming up, getting ready to fly”
Old man, you must be crazy
That’s when he looked me right in the eye and said

Nothin’ ventured, nothin’ gained
Sometimes you have to go against the grain
To find the sun you gotta face the rain
Nothin’ ventured, nothin’ gained
Nothin’ ventured, nothin’ gained

I shook my head and kept on walking
I thought to myself, now I’ve seen everything
This world is full of impossible dreamers
Ain’t no doubt this one is going insane
I turned around and he was still flapping
His arms up and down, leaning in the air
I yelled: “Old man, wake up you’re dreaming
You ain’t goin’ anywhere” – He just said

Nothin’ ventured, nothin’ gained
Sometimes you have to go against the grain
To find the sun you gotta face the rain
Nothin’ ventured, nothin’ gained
Nothin’ ventured, nothin’ gained

But much to my surprise
His feet came off the ground
And as he went flying by
He turned my heart around
I started singing

Nothin’ ventured, nothin’ gained
Sometimes you have to go against the grain
To find the sun you gotta face the rain
Nothin’ ventured, nothin’ gained
Nothin’ ventured, nothin’ gained
