Verse 1
If I make the grade
Pass all my exams
Who’s to say I really understand?
Or if I seem to fail
Fall short of the mark – oh
Do I really slip from light to dark?

Oh life’s mystery
We never see
Wood for the trees
Still I believe in you and me

Verse 2
If I make my name
Secure wealth and fame
Who’s to say only then I succeed?
And when I love and lose
Spend my time confused – oh
Do I really waste a human life?

Repeat Chorus
