  • Why do you always have to make your life so complicated?
    You’re always chasing shooting stars that fall from the sky
    And then quickly die
    It’s like you’re making an origami swan out of tissue paper
    You’re trying to build a 10 feet high building
    With ice cream for foundations in a desert
    You throw logic in the bin every time
    And choose to listen to that ticking time bomb in your chest

    Why do you always have to make your life so complicated?
    You get your past, present and future tangled up
    Like closely woven fairy floss
    You contemplate the view at the highest peak
    After the steep gully
    When you’re still in bare feet

    Now close your eyes weary daydreamer
    Leave reality behind
    And let the stars guide you this time
