Passion - where does it come from?

it doesn't come to you in a jar
you can't spread it on toast

why it doesn't even come in a store
like the rarest rubies, diamonds or sapphire

it doesn't come to you with old age
or pop out of a birthday card like confetti

you can't even get it in a lottery
by any amount of gambling or good luck

oh and it certainly doesn't come to you through others
the force of family or friends

Passion - where does it come from?

why it's innate, it's real,
it's genuine, it's fate!

Inspired by Clark Terry playing, "Stardust":
