I am always striving to be happy
Why are there so many things trying to take that from me?
I’m working hard to do the best I can, can’t you see?
Why am I always depressed, why can’t I keep a smile on my face?
Is it because I wear my heart on my sleeve? It’s so quick to chase
Damnit I want to be happy, I also want to have fun
Why did you take it away, why did you take away my sun?
Everytime I take one step forward, I take two steps back
I don’t know about you but this whole concept to me seems whack
I wish I knew the answer I wish I was a bit more brave
Right now I feel like I’m digging myself into an early grave
What is happiness?

  1. One day I hope to see you happy
    Happiness is something that lies inside of you, can’t you see?
    A state of mind, of soul, it’s very clearly
    Even in rough times, wear your scars with grace
    A big heart is something to embrace
    Dammit, you will be happy! You will have fun
    Just take it back, don’t quit until you’re done
    Keep pushing forward, don’t give up
    Don’t ever give in and never stop
    Just lean on me, I am always here
    Day after day, year after year
    You will know happiness…
