We count the thorns, but forget to count the roses,
we count our scars and forget to appreciate the healing process.

We follow dreams but forget to dream our own,
we seek the silence, but live in the moan.

We need to seek the beauty, seek the beauty inside,
we need sieze the day, and embrace the night,
we need to follow the path of serenity with all our might,
we need to take up the candle and go out into the night,
we need to find the beauty and let it inside.
