NO SHORTCUT TO HAPPINESS
Words and music by Michael Phillips
(c) 1997 Jive Music. Used by permission.

Now there's sadness in your eyes,
And your face reflects trouble and despair.
You always seemed to know where it should be going
Till the day put you on trial and you were unaware
That you'd have to change your direction
And take another train
To another destination,
And you weren't really ready to pay the fare.

You'll find no peace by moving from one place to another
As long as you regret leaving behind friends.
You're a victim of your self-defined perfection,
And you don't rely on waiting for what heaven sends,
But somehow you've buried the real you, untiringly workin'
To have a better hand in life's game.
You're driven by frantic ambition,
You can't help it but you're burning the candle at both ends.

After your wandering in the darkness
You are standing at the crossroads of tomorrow and yesterday.
Just follow your star and don't look back,
But know there's no shortcut to happiness, you gotta go all the way.

Now you find yourself standing with your back to the wall,
Fearing your whole life might be going down the drain.
You've climbed the stairs `cause you believed in what you were doin´.
It made sense in the beginning, but now you think it´s all in vain.
Now you feel like a stranger in the kingdom of your own
That you've built for your loved ones,
You know it could be paradise,
But you feel you've lost ground that can't be regained.

After your wandering in the darkness
You are standing at the crossroads of tomorrow and yesterday.
Just follow your star and don't look back,
But know there´s no shortcut to happiness, you gotta go all the way.

Now you´ve come to doubt the value of your golden hands.
You never thought your talents could be wasted by and by.
It's not that your pains were good for nothing,
And it´s not because you were always aiming high.
You just forgot to watch the pitfalls on the way,
But who else should be able
To make it but you,
With your wealth of ideas that's like a well that never runs dry.

After your wandering in the darkness
You are standing at the crossroad of tomorrow and yesterday.
Just follow your star and don't look back,
But know there´s no shortcut to happiness, you gotta go all the way.

There´s no shortcut to happiness,
There´s no shortcut to happiness,
You gotta go all the way.
