Lyrics

Ever since you left I’d been suffering so
Trampled down by the pain of separation, never felt so low
So I went into the mountains to find release
Got soaked to the bone, froze my fingers and my toes
yet I found some peace
For I realize for every bit of pleasure there’s an element of pain
And suffering is a choice we make…

Pain! Inevitable
Suffering! Optional

The Buddha tells us to live is to suffer
When you were my lover, I wouldn’t hesitate to differ
The Buddha says we suffer because of our desire
I was so enraptured with you, guess I was playing with fire
Now I realize for every bit of pleasure there’s an element of pain
And suffering is a choice we make…

Pain! Inevitable
Suffering! Optional

When I look around me I see a courage everywhere
Of people who carry themselves with pride depsite the pain they bear
There are those of us who suffer for the tiniest of woes
Let go of our attachments and the suffering goes
Now I realize that we can all be winners depsite the pain
It’s not the cards you’re dealt my friend, but how you play the game

Pain! Inevitable
Suffering! Optional
