lyrics

A HAPPY MAN

He lives in shadows of the caves we call our home,
Not hiding, but never present, he likes to be on his own.
You'll never find him bothers by the ways we think we act,
He's just sitting there stubborn, always caught up in his facts.
But I think he's a happy man in his solitude,
But I would like the rest of the world to know him the way that I do.

He's not a talker but when he does, he's always right.
Never ends his discussions and we always get in a fight.
He's more of a listener but never interested in what I say.
He's always caught in his own wondering, but I like him that way.
And I think he's a happy man in his solitude,
But I would like the rest of the world to know you, the way that I do.

I know I'm just a girl, but I'm a woman to be.
I'll be good to you and if you still don't I will make you see,
that the only thing that I want for you from the bottom of my heart,
is a happy life and if you like, I will play the missing part.
And I'll make you a happier man, leave your solitude,
cause I would like to show the rest of the world, how much I love you.
