Looking Up. (July 15,1999 / Barinas)
Is life worth it? - Friends
You stop abruptly and stare, thinking again,
I stand motionless in my lair, is life a game?
It's so confusing I want to lay still, and slowly die from the chill,
It's so sweet and so sly, you don't know how to fly.
As a canyon of sorrow, waits for tomorrow,
To slowly rise, make mountains be high.
It's so confusing when going back to reality,
When you start to get pulled by gravity.
Life is a bipolar game,
Don't be afraid don't let it be tamed.
If life was a game, you would never play right,
If things weren't so lame, the atmosphere wouldn't be so light.
I walked by,
And you caught my eye.
We talked and finished with a bye,
I felt once again life.
For every misery hidden,
In all the darkness yet not forgiven.
Even if there's no fine linen
There will always be happiness given,
If you can't afford it,
If you can't stop it.
If you can't do it,
If you can't choose it.
Thinking it's just to sell and buy
Is life a bargain?
Stop and think about your friends waving goodbye,
And feel light once again.

Are you happy?
Keep your luck.
Are you lost?
Keep Looking Up.
