PEACEFUL EASY

One man’s happy is another man’s comfort,
a feeling that although things could be better,
they’re pretty damn good for right now.
How can it not be? It takes a certain kind of fool
to take it to the limit and expect more.
Stealing moments not intended for you
because you feel unfulfilled makes you
a desperado, guilty of the crime.
You fail to grasp the big picture.
With that thinking, there’s gonna be a heartache
tonight and every night. I wish you peace.
Get over it and take it easy. One of these
nights you’ll find yourself a victim
of love. How long, I can’t tell you,
but when you do, you’ll be in it
for the long run. You are not alone.
Have fun, forget all that wasted time
and find your comfort. It’s your world
now. Get bust being fabulous!
