A delicate Balance

Happiness

"A delicate balance"

Batter my body in this bitter cold life, but you cannot lay a scratch on my soul,
I may be human and be dead anytime but my soul is immortal,
Problems can be unimportant but your tears speak a thousand words,
Happiness is a delicate balance; a small tilt can undermine your thoughts,

Life taught me some things that can never be forgotten,
I’ll take it to my grave; I shall burn it with my flesh,
Until I’ll be free of this falsetto of illusion
And I’ll be free of these chains
I’ll be free of these pains
And I’ll be free

I have a positive disposition, hence when I’m down, it’s very unresting,
The stains remain the same for quite awhile and its ripples touch the shore
Of the ones who love me more,
The fretts of my life aren’t really tied with the strings of peace
I live in a moment; I take nothing for granted,
Life is a delicate balance; a small tilt can undermine your inner self,

Batter my body in this bitter cold life, but you cannot lay a scratch on my soul.
I may be human and be dead anytime but my soul is immortal.
Problems can be unimportant but your tears speak a thousand words,
Happiness is a delicate balance; a small tilt can undermine your thoughts,

Everybody is looking and they are laughing and they are singing and they are dancing,
But everybody feels the same,
Hidden in layers and layers of lie to have a delusion of the truth,
Fears keep piling down and they feel like they have surpassed their doom.

Batter my body in this bitter cold life, but you cannot lay a scratch on my soul.
I may be human and be dead anytime but my soul is immortal.
Problems can be unimportant but your tears speak a thousand words,
Happiness is a delicate balance; a small tilt can undermine your thoughts,
