Maybe it's sad that I haven't seen bad,
But really I'm glad I haven't gone mad.

It's a fortunate thing
I've been this lucky in my life
It's a wonderful thing.

Maybe it's great I'm not full of hate
It's really first rate I don't need to debate.

It's a fortunate thing
Not having all of that strife
It's a wonderful thing.

Sure I've seen sorrow today and tomorrow
But I don't need to borrow another and harrow.

It's a fortunate thing
Taking care of my mind
It's a wonderful thing.

I've watched people die and bring a tear to my eye
But thought I may cry, I keep my head towards the sky.

It's a fortunate thing
This strength won't unwind
It's a wonderful thing.

I've watched people leave and of course I can grieve
They go and bereave my sense of reprieve.

It's a difficult thing
Watching love go
It's a terrible thing.

As you crawl in the abyss, you know I will miss
I can never dismiss that one final kiss.

It's a difficult thing
Hanging on to a thought
It's a terrible thing.

But I will fight to press towards the light
Through the dark of the night I will know what is right.

It's an amazing thing
The will of the heart
It's a beautiful thing.
