Name of Song: Always there

Calmly look,
Don’t try hard,
So you avoid
that thing on guard.

Always there,
It never leaves,
Your own police
that stops you being.

We want to see,
Sorta look ahead,
But it just stops
until you’re dead.

Chorus
It pretends to be
your only friend,
But never leaves
until your end.
Change your way,
It’s what you do,
It’s how you win
so you don’t lose.

We accept
what seems to stay,
Not always true,
So change your way.

It’s what you do,

We want to know
what’s coming near,
So we survive
those knives and spears.

Be very calm
so see what’s near,
And never leave
the now and here.

We accept
what seems to stay,
Not always true,
So change your way.

Change your way,
It’s what you do,
It’s how you win
so you don’t lose.
