Happiness is two diff'rent things What you take and then what you bring One is pleasure, one's discipline,
One's devotion, one's just the ring.
 Desire and reward.
Long term and short term joy.

Don't waste your heart Don't waste your heart 
One has nothing to do with the other..
and the world is all cousins not brothers 
Hard to take you off of my love
One's an instant, one takes some will
One gives life, and one makes you kill
One's the means and ones for the end
 Desire and reward.
Long term and short term joy.

Don't waste your heart Don't waste your heart 
One has nothing to do with the other..
and the world is all cousins not brothers 
Don't you give in,
You're beginning
