I just got off the phone today
With a good friend of mine
She mentioned something bout her family
And having a real good time

Wouldn't it be great to see them
Wouldn't it be great to be with them
But I had my own plans for this is my life
I thought about all the words

That were shared between the two of us
For a moment I paused then I realized
If she gives into me, it would be great for my reason
Instead I could sacrifice, just a little bit of my time

If there's one thing that I've learned over the years
Without sacrifice - there isn't love
If a side of me just won't give in
And I'd rather be on my own

Than I'd never grow, I'd never know
Sacrifice - Sacrifice
I heard somebody say, to get love
You gotta give it away

And I felt something tugging at my heart that day
I knew I should pick up the phone
And tell her that I'd go along
When I did, she thanked me, now I wrote this song...

I once read about a man
Who gave of himself to the very end
He sacrificed His life for you and me
I want to learn to be like Him

And give love instead of taking it in
For it's better to give than to receive
I still believe, in sacrifice
