If I could take a bite of the whole worldAnd feel it on my palateI'd be more happy for a minute or so...But I don't always want to be happy.Sometimes you have to beUnhappy to be natural...Not every day is sunny.When there's been no rain for a while, you pray for it to come.So I take unhappiness with happinessNaturally, like someone who doesn't find it strangeThat there are mountains and plainsAnd that there are cliffs and grass...What you need is to be natural and calmIn happiness and in unhappiness,To feel like someone seeing,To think like someone walking,And when it's time to die, remember the day dies,And the sunset is beautiful, and the endless night is beautiful...That's how it is and that's how it should be...
