lyrics

This seems like a perfect place
To sit and ponder the world
To watch our stresses go by
Sit back and stare for a while
To get a feel of the atmosphere
To feel all the beauty of Earth
To sit in a coffee shop and dream of knowing what we’re all worth.

But to get that far
Far enough to understand who we are
Close enough to reach out and touch the stars
Deep enough to see the love behind the scars
High enough above to know what it all means
When lovers hold each other close between the sheets
If death will be our ultimate serenity
In a world that’s plagued by beauty bittersweet
Bittersweet.

I wish our thoughts inspired actions
And our actions inspired thoughts
See the answers are what I sought to discover
But the answers have always been lost
I want to feel the will of honest men
Men who are out define
Our destiny, to live for each other
What it takes to save another’s life.

But to be a man
To be more than a boy I gotta lend a hand
Sing our songs to make the others understand
Show them that serenity does not mean death
Give the hopeless hope by giving them our time
Even if it takes us our entire lives
Look beneath the skin to see a lifelong fight
Surely all the scars will turn the dark to light
The dark to light.

As bittersweet as it sounds
Our world is profound
With the hopes and the dreams
Of seven billion human beings
All longing for the same kind of love like a game
But the universe holds the dice.
Seems like the place and the time
To go out and save a life
Fall in love, stick it through
Till our hopes and dreams come true
Till we find that what we seek was never meant to be found.

But to get that far
Far enough to understand who we are
Close enough to reach out and touch the stars
Deep enough to see the love behind the scars
High enough above to know what it all means
When lovers hold each other close between the sheets
If death will be our ultimate serenity
In a world that’s plagued by beauty bittersweet
Or is that just the nature of our paradigm
Simply born into an awfully simple life
Born to die, to live, to fight, just to survive
That’s not how a better man would spend his time
Searching for the answers lies within my blood
Everything I know will never be enough
Try to get the feeling of the coffee shop
Happiness lies ahead man, we can’t stop.

Happiness lies ahead man, we can’t stop.
