The Happening lyrics

Hey, life, look at me!
I can see the reality
Cause when you shook me, took me outta my world

I woke up,
Suddenly I just woke up

To the happening, uh, uh
When you find, uh, uh
That you left the future behind
Cause when you got a tender love you don't
Take care of,
Then you better beware of
The happening, oh!

One day you're up (one day you're up)
Then you turn around (when you turn around)
You find your world (you find your world)
Is tumbling down (is coming down)
It happened to me, and it can happen to you

I was sure, I felt secure
Until love took a detour
Yeah, I'm riding high on top of the world
It happened, suddenly it just happened
The happening!

But I saw my dreams, oh, oh torn apart, oh, oh
When love walked away from my heart
(Beware of the happening!)
And when you lose that precious love you need
To guide you, something happens inside you
The happening, ooooh!

Now I see life (now I see life)
For what it is (for what it is)
It's not of dreams (it's not of dreams)
It's not of bliss (it's not of bliss)
It happened to me and it can happen to you (once)
Uh, uh, and then it happened (oh it happened)
Uh, uh, and then it happened (oh it happened)
Uh, uh, and then it happened (oh it happened)
Uh, uh, and then it happened (oh it happened)

Is it real, is it fake?
Is this game of life a mistake?
(Beware of the happening!)
Cause when I lost the love I thought was mine for certain
Suddenly I start hurting!
I saw the light too late, oh, oh
When that fickle finger of fate
Yeah, it came and broke my pretty balloon
I woke up, suddenly I just woke up
I felt so sure, felt secure
Until love took a detour
Cause when you got a tender love you don't take care of
Then you better beware of
The happening, oh, oh, oh!
