"How You Ever Gonna Know?"
Written by:  Kent Blazy, Garth Brooks

That old wind that's whippin' out there
It's whistlin' your tune
That wind blew pyramids to Egypt
And footprints to the moon

And that old star that you been wishin' on
Is shinin' mighty bright
But it's the fire inside your heart
That's gonna lead you to the light

How you ever gonna know
What it's like to live there ?
How you ever gonna know victory ?
How you ever gonna know,
What it's like when dreams become reality ?

How you ever gonna know
What it's like to dance ?
How you ever gonna know
If you never take a chance ?

You know failure isn't failure
If a lesson from it's learned
I guess love would not be love
Without a risk of being burned

Anything in life worth havin'
Lord, it has its sacrifice
But the gift that you're receiving
Is worth more than the price

How you ever gonna know
What it's like to live there ?
How you ever gonna know
What you never knew ?

How you ever gonna know
If you're down here doin'
What the good Lord put you here to do ?

How you ever gonna know
If you could have done it ?
How you ever gonna know
How it feels to fly ?
How you ever gonna know
If you never dare to try ?

Listen not to the critics
Who put their own dreams on the shelf
If you want to get the truth to admit it
You gotta find out for yourself

How you ever gonna know
What it's like to be there ?
How you ever gonna know
If you're one of the best ?

How you ever gonna know
What you believe in
If you don't put it to the test ?
How you ever gonna know
What livin' means?
How you ever gonna know
If you never chase the dream ?

How you ever gonna know
Your potential?
How you ever gonna know victory ?
How you ever gonna know
What it's like when dreams
Become reality?

How you ever gonna know
What it's like to dance?
How you ever gonna know
If you never take the chance ?
