hidup adalah tentang sebuah pilihan
yg nanti akan kau jalani dan kau harus tujukan warnamu
putih yg penuh kesabaran di hati
ataukah merah kau pilih yg hanya ingin menang sendiri
warnailah hidup mu dengan warna yg terang dan indah saat ini
warnailah hidupmu yg akan menjadi lukisan dan dilihat orang
dua yg ada
merah dan putih
mana yang akan menjadi warnamu
