  • The greatest blessing that we have
    Is the dawn of each new day
    A chance to finish what we started
    And made a mess of yesterday
    As day comes out of night
    A chance to get it right
    A chance to start again
    A chance to get it right

    The people here
    Full of love and comfortable in themselves
    Not scared to let go
    No fear round here

    I met this man
    In Utrecht Netherlands
    He was a doctor of the body and the soul
    He said to me:
    Man, there's a book you have to read.
    I feel your pain. It makes me cry
    But these tears are yours - not mine.

    You're focusing on all of your bad yesterdays
    The worry lines are getting deeper every day
    And deep inside you
    No surprise - there's a crisis!
    You might have been to blame
    But you can't go on this way
    Must I watch and pray?

    While you torture yourself with what's behind ya
    Torture yourself with what awaits ya
    Draggin' that guilt and regret inside ya
    Anxious of the goals that always evade ya

    Your mind will find a way to be unkind to you somehow
    But all we really have is happening to us right now

    HAPPINESS IS THE ROAD

    And each baby..
    A human sunrise
    Each baby - a human sunrise..

    Look around you
    Feel your soul inside you
    Look inside you
    Feel the life course through you
    The life that's giving In every thing that's living
    The plants and the trees
    The birds and the bees
    And apes like you and me

    HAPPINESS IS THE ROAD

    You're a slave to your mind
    But you are not your mind
    You are not your pain
    Say it again
    You are not your pain
    Say it again
    You are not your pain

    Happiness aint at the end of the road
    Happiness aint at the end of the road
    Happiness IS the road
    The road
