Everything that is good is bad

Passion for anything makes the longing

Music is a tune that will only break your heart

So you won’t dance for your life

But you will dance the night away

Isn’t there enough drama in life already

The world’s a stage you don’t need one

Under a sky you wish was azure

Assure little street bird, one, two, three

Sleep is a stage full of no’s

Durjana echoes
