lyrics

there’s a delicate balance between
driving oneself crazy
& putting on the pressure

there’s a delicate balance between
losing control &
allowing for leisure

there’s a delicate balance between
demanding respect &
insulting with a smile

& just for good measure
i’m not a magician
i get lost
scheming to persuade

there’s a delicate balance between
making a joke &
just feeling sad

there’s a delicate balance between
trying to be wise &
just being creative

solving problems &
gritting our teeth
between headache
& sacrifice

there’s a delicate balance between
it being okay
& it being alright
