You Can Be Happy (Acoustic)

from Echo Echo by IAMX



You walked into the world
As a super human boy and girl
In the blinking of your eyes
I was born and sold by your manifesto

It’s a cruel world for small things
But with lies and luxuries
In the in-between
You can be happy

You put me in a cage
In the daily maze of flesh and rage
But I will follow every truth
I won’t let you go
I want every tomorrow

And now I am afraid
You will blossom soon and grow and change
There is so much I can’t take
But I will understand
I will open my hand

You can be happy

There’s an open window
And I can go through
Into the life of others
There’s nothing I can’t do
