  • The secret of our happiness is unconditional love
    I just wanted to make her smile
    And make it last for a while
    Do all the things you can do at home
    Maybe once in a while get away somewhere special
    Create a memory that would last forever
    In those days we spent together

    They say the secret of our happiness is unconditional love
    And brotherhood and trying to be good and trying not to drink
    But I can't stop drinking, it's in my blood
    In and out of trouble, while keeping yourself alive
    Not giving cold down in the wastes of the grim and mire
    In the dark and the sun of the mire

    Not getting wasted, not being a cheat, a killer or a liar
    Not getting pulled down in the wastes of the mire
    In the darkness of the mire, in the darkness of the mire
    I'd rather be a lover than a liar
    I'd rather be a lover than a supplier

    If the secret of happiness is unconditional love
    Why don't you miss me?
    Well, sometimes I do, like when you're away
    And I feel a need for you
    I feel it like the day we met all those years ago
    Those times were hard to hold on to
    But nothing stays the same
    We are forever moving, like the dancing of the flame
    Life is so unstable, always changing, it never stays the same
    Like the atom and that bomb that causes so much pain
    So I came in from the cold with nowhere left to go
    And I gave away my freedom and the calling of the wild
    So that I could be with you, I chose to be with you
    So I came in from the cold and I chose to be with you
    I chose
    To be (growls)
    With you

    (Growls, hisses, snarls)
