Burden Of Attitude

Ehsan Sehgal

I take up the burden of attitude
I secretly pour my tears

I look sympathies as like loans
I hide my sorrows in the smile

I take care of your heart
I bear every injury myself

Can't see, the lies have no feet
What we are making our life

I am very simple, on each lie
I situate in the heart of hope

When the blood doesn't work to burn
I let the candle burn with tears

It is the strange journey of life
I am walking away from myself

I still look forward my soul-mate
I spend my life all alone

I don't get the love in awaking
I dream love in the dreams
