It’s a warm hello from a long-time friend
who hasn’t been seen in years.
A friend who has been there all your life
even when your world was dark.
And when you were in the depths of pain,
your friend was there in the rain
waiting to change the lines on your face
waiting to change the rocks into lace.
But you fought him off because you fear
the very thing that would dry all the tears;
Scared to climb up the heights;
Scared to rise into the lights.
Be less serious, life can be much easier.
Let your friend in, he is the door to joy.
Be carefree and careless, and you will see
your friend is your smile;
he will save your world.
