Lyrics:

I've made some enemies,
and lost my share of friends.
I found a few beginnings,
but couldn't seem to reach the end.

After living on the outside,
looking in, year after year,
who would have thought that everything
I've done would bring me here?


No one ever told me
that the thrill is in the chase.
I thought the destination
was the reason for the race.

No one ever told me
that I've only just begun.
As long as I am in the game,
then I've already won.


I've run from compromise,
my pride got in the way.
I used to dream in black and white,
but I've been missing all the shades.

I was empty on the inside,
so I never would have guessed,
that every time I stumbled
I was being blessed.


No one ever told me
that the thrill is in the chase.
I thought the destination
was the reason for the race.

No one ever told me
that by shooting for the sun,
and giving it the best I've got,
then I've already won.


They say what doesn't kill you
is bound to make you strong...

but the more my life goes by,
the more I find that I
am right where I belong.


Now I try to see the upside
when the world has been unfair.
And if I hit a wall, I know
exactly why it's there.


No one has to tell me
that the thrill is in the chase.
It's not the destination
that's the reason for the race.

No one has to tell me,
getting there is half the fun.
Whatever turn the journey takes,
down every road,
with each mistake,

I know that after all is said and done...

I've already won.

I've already won!
