A Happy Song

from by Two Inch Astronaut



there are things I loved, I’ll never do again
the star witness is called just to point me out and put me in
treated you like a dog, then scratched behind your ears
on the best of the days I’d whisper doubt into them
someday you will be happier than they ever could
cracked my head and then slept right on the stoop
but somebody was home and I can’t believe it’s you
there are things you hate you’ll do for the rest of your life
and you better be grateful for the opportunity
cuz you might as well, cuz I don’t know what else
could be better than being able to say to yourself
"someday you'll be happier than they ever could"
