A body without soul
That is what I am
I don’t know why
God is playing a game
I don’t want to blame
But I don’t want to live
Let me live in happiness
Remove this wretchedness
Repeats the Big Ben’s chime
But, this life comes only one time.
So, please let me live
in the light
Don’t want always to live in the night
Take me from this Death Valley to great heights
I want my future to be bright.

Ugly world of ours
My eyes are filled with tears
My heart is full of fears
Every step I fall
I want to go far from all.
Everyone is fighting with each other
Even with father, mother, sister and brother
What will people gain?
Do they become happy by giving others pain?
Everyone is selfish and rude
It’s hard to find someone good
No one has the feeling of take and give
I want to go away from the world I live.
