Hey! Life, look at me, I can see the reality 'Cause when you shook me, took me outta my world, I woke up Suddenly I just woke up to the happening When you find that you left the future behind 'Cause when you got a tender love you don't take care of Then you better beware of The happening One day you're up, when you turn around You find your world is tumbling down It happened to me and it can happen to you I was sure, I felt secure until love took a detour Yeah! Riding high on top of the world, it happened Suddenly it just happened I saw my dreams torn apart When love walked away from my heart And when you lose a precious love you need to guide you Something happens inside you The happening Now I see life for what it is It's not of dreams, it's not of bliss It happened to me and it can happen to you And then it happened Oo, and then it happened Oo, and then it happened Oo, and then it happened Is it real? Is it fake? Is this game of life a mistake? 'Cause when I lost the love I thought was mine for certain Suddenly it starts hurtin' I saw the light too late when that fickle finger of fate Yeah! It came and broke my pretty balloon I woke up, suddenly I just woke up, so sure I felt secure until love took a detour 'Cause when you got a tender love you don't take care of Then you better beware of The happening
