Far and wide, a thousand joys evoke laughter where smiles fall short
And here, in the dimly lit lanes, the echoes deafen the numbed ears
The aching heart hopes against hope for one last resort
While the frozen eyes search for the warmth of the dried tears
You say that every deep sorrow is answered with happiness
But then, is our pain not deep enough?
And while we appreciate your legitimate goodness
Our undeserving grieves break us as we pretend to laugh.
