When you kiss a woman,
and find her mouth sweet,
it is your love that you taste,
it is your heart that has raced.
Where is that sweet sad place?
lost forever in time and space,
where elephants go to die?
Have you ever wondered my friend?
Have you ever given it a thought?
Sick or healthy, why are we all alive?
Poor or wealthy, why do we all survive?
Weak or strong, why do we all breathe?
Right or wrong, why do we all succeed?
Cuz God doesn’t discriminate.
He doesn’t wear coloured glasses.
Don’t you cry little girl,
don’t you cry at all
The world is so cruel
and you have to bear it all
I saw the ancient gods,
majestic and holding their golden rods.
Sitting atop the Bostan mountain,
crowned and drinking from an ancient fountain.
I would love to be a butterfly
Riding the rainbows
and not watch my own colours;
just content to be a lover of flowers.
