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
