It Can Happen Lyrics

Artist: Yes
Album: 90125

You can fool yourself
You can cheat until you're blind
You can cut your heart
It can happen

You can mend the wires
You can feed the soul apart
You reach
It can happen to you
It can happen to me
It can happen to everyone eventually

It's a constant fight
A constant fight
You're pushing the needle to the red
Black and white
Who knows who's right
No substitute you're born you're dead
Fly by night
Created out of fantasy
Our destinations call

Look up - Look down
Look out - Look around
Look up - Look down
There's a crazy world outside
We're not about to lose our pride

It can happen to you
It can happen to me
It can happen to everyone eventually

As you happen to say
It can happen today
As it happens
It happens in every way

This world I like
We architects of life
A song a sigh
Developing words that linger
Through fields of green through open eyes
This for us to see

Look up - Look down
Look out - Look around
So look up - Look down
There's a crazy world outside
We're not about to lose our pride

It can happen to you
It can happen to me
It can happen to everyone eventually

As you happen to say
It can happen today
As it happens
It happens in every way

As you happen to see
It will happen to be
Nothing happens to nowhere and nowhere

Solo

Look up - Look down
There's a crazy world outside
We're not about to lose our pride

It can happen to you
It can happen to me
It can happen to everyone eventually

As you happen to see
It will happen to be
Nothing happens to nowhere and nowhere

You can fool yourself
You can cheat until you're blind
You can cut your heart

You can fool yourself It can happen to you
You can cheat until you're blind It can happen to me

You can cut your heart It can happen to eveyone eventually
As you happen to say
It can happen today
As it happens
It happens in every way

You can mend the wires
You can feed the soul apart
You can touch your life
You can bring your soul alive
It can happen to you
It can happen to me
It can happen to everyone eventually

As you happen to say
It can happen today
As it happens
It happens in every way

It would be easier to convince me that "It" can indeed happen, if I only knew WHAT "It" was - the song lyrics give no indication whatsoever what "It" is

Mike... You might as well ask what Rosebud really means or why the Aliens communicated with music and then just took people... Or ask "Closer to what heart?" It is art with layers subtext and with each individual's own thoughts and passions giving meaning to them.

**it can happen, Mike?

Whatever we happen to say
Whatever we happen to see
Happens to become our reality
Eventually
Us being the arcitects of our life
Watch the words develop and linger
Watch what you say & how you see it

Mike, it's about drug addiction. Some lyrics are about heroin, some are about living in the fast lane where drugs can kill a life before it's really had a chance to begin, and the chorus is about drug addiction as a whole, about staying strong after treatment to avoid relapse. Relapse can be a killer.

Shaman hit the nail on the head. The graphics accompanying the tour say a lot - people, in color, drinking the water and turning black and white. Plus, the background vocals "black and white". "It" is allowing your own personal prejudices and hatred to turn the green fields into a black and white world of absolutes. The machines of media are the "water district" who's pumping out the poison.

This word I like / We are ejects of life / A soul for sight, / Preferring the words that linger / Fields of green through open eyes / Are for us to see.

In my opinion, it is finding the Light which resides in your Soul, the true meaning of my Life has been that!

"You can cut your heart it can happen to everyone eventually." Have you ever been tired and you retreat into yourself for some stillness? It is then you can use that time to learn and "mend the wires ". Don 't
freak out it 's just a time for reflection.

It's about going down the wrong road. We are all faced with choices. As you "reach" ... You can fool yourself, You can cheat but if you look around you won't lose your pride. And even though "it's a constant fight" ... It can happen to you (choosing the wrong way to live your life).

Iran-Iraq tanker war 1980's gonna happen again !!!

Thanks Max for getting it, congrats, you are alive! Drugs are not the only way to go wrong. I see it happen all the time - "happy" people living and believing in the lies they decided on (for whatever reason that seems good enough, culture, wish to fit in, etc) instead of letting life happen to them - was one of them once.

When I 1st listened to the lyrics, thought it was about discovering a self epiphany, but then thought it might be about death. When I listened to the lyric "We architects of life" I heard in the song, "The architect of light", meaning God. Was disappointed to find out it was not the lyric.

Death, "It will happen to everyone eventually."
