lyrics

I'm not saying you must have trouble in your life to be a wise man,
although I know it helps to learn a lesson well
and I'm not hinting at any excuses for a failure,
some mistakes are there for making you can just tell.
It's like falling in love with a cold heart
and she's avoiding you all the time,
or going to a cash dispenser,
when you know you haven't got a dime.
and I'm not saying you should be looking for a way to bond with others,
oh! well I guess that needn't ever bother me,
I won't suggest you feel the same you've got your conscience,
some best efforts are bound to fail you can just see.
It's like falling in love with a cold heart
and she's avoiding you all the time,
or going to a cash dispenser,
when you know you haven't got a dime.
Oh! I'm falling in love with a wild heart,
she doesn't even know I exist,
I'm chasing a rainbow on a landscape,
there can be nothing more foolish than this.
I'm not saying you must have trouble in your life to be a wise man,
although I know it helps to learn a lesson well,
I know sometimes your dreams are bound to end in failure,
that's why we have a word called hope you can just tell.
