lyrics

My Happiness has made a mess of all the secret codes.
My happiness has lost itself out wandering the roads.
My happiness is hard to guess. It starts with “two” and ends with “x”
and it thought you were the carrier of a beauty disruptive,
but I was drunk on your dancing eyes.

My happiness is more or less poetry or prose.
It spills around this college town with nowhere else to go.
My happiness is no disgrace: your sleepy eyes and your dumpling face,
and it thought you were the carrier of a beauty disruptive,
but I was drunk on your dancing eyes.

And it’s happy just to suppose
you have feverish dreams of your own.
You have crazy visions that you gather in close.
It’s all happiness now, whatever befalls.

My happiness just drives around. It thinks things and it writes them down.
My happiness makes do with less than what the dream foretold.
My happiness has tried its best but happiness was not impressed.
It said, I know this very place. I made a little there with myself
and you were kind, and nothing else. And I thought I saw something.

And it’s happy just to suppose
you have feverish dreams of your own.
You have crazy visions that you gather in close.
It’s all happiness now, whatever befalls.
