better than the rest

a subtle boy he was, a friend in need
kids are cruel we know, though we didn’t wanna see
he died alone with a plastic bag around his head
believing he took the quick way out of growing up

a handsome gal she was, my sweetest love
always by my side, through good and rainy days
I screwed up big time and lost her on the way
really miss her now, but then I shouldn’t make her stay

it might not be paradise down here on Earth
but it takes no genius to realize it’s worth it
all there is to it, wrapped, inside a fortune cookie, it said:
“don’t give up, you are better than the rest”

an old man he was, still full of deeds
health drops fast in age they say, he never cared a bit
always working in his garden where flowers still bloom
was diagnosed with lung cancer and a sad, sad family

a free guy he was, trapped in a cold regime
leaving his son behind in tears, jumped the next airplane home
life passed by and still he couldn’t cease to care
16 years or so, they met again eventually

it might not be paradise down here on Earth
but it takes no genius to realize it’s worth it
all there is to it, wrapped, inside a fortune cookie, it said:
“don’t give up, you are better than the rest”

it might not be paradise down here on Earth
but it takes no genius to realize it’s worth it
all there is to it, wrapped, inside a fortune cookie, it said:
“don’t give up, you are better than the rest”
