The world that looks endlessly grey
The life that wrongs you day after day
The heart that aches for a beautiful dream
The soul that shivers from a sight unseen
The words are spoken, nothing left to say
The heart that wonders
Why those eyes looked away
The ears that would rather believe the lies
The fool who wonders why his soul cries
The sun that shines only to set
The people we love and conveniently forget
The fights we fight only to fight
The wrongs we know will never be right
The people who lift up our spirits and soul
From whom tragedy takes all its toll
The lonely boy across the street
The strangers we see, the people we meet
Stuck in a limbo between fact and fiction
Yet we dare to live with such conviction
A life that depicts
Everything contradicts
Yet every morning to the unknown
I still wake up in a cheerful tone
Because sometimes those strangers bring me joy
Because sometimes I smile at across the street boy
Because sometimes things really are what they seem
Because sometimes reality beats the most perfect of dreams
