Happy? (Melancholy music for the masses)

Happy?
Feeling so frustrated
Even antiquated
‘Cause you can’t update me
If I’m overrated

You fly off the handle
Wait till I’m not there
If you will fly off the handle
Wait till I’m not there

‘Cause I will talk
Maybe you will listen
But you won’t hear a single
Word I say

I will talk
You will listen
We have a house where
I’m in your hair
I’ll go spare
And leave you happy
In there

Maybe I’ve forgotten
The name and the address
Of everyone I’ve ever known,
It’s nothing I regret
Save it for another day
It’s the school exam and the kids have run away

I would like a place I can call my own
Have a conversation on the telephone
Wake up everyday, that would be a start
I would not complain of my wounded heart

I was upset, you see
Almost all the time
You used to be a stranger
Now you are mine

I wouldn’t even trust you
I’ve not that much to give
We’re dealing in the limits, and
We don’t know who with
You may think that I’m out of hand
That I’m naive, I’ll understand
On this occasion, it’s not true
Look at me, I’m not you

I would like a place I can call my own
Have a conversation on the telephone
Wake up everyday, that would be a start
I would not complain of my wounded heart

I was a short fuse
Burning all the time
You were a complete stranger
Now you are mine

I would like a place I can call my own
Have a conversation on the telephone
Wake up everyday, that would be a start
I would not complain with my wounded heart

Just wait ’till tomorrow
I guess that’s what they all say
Just before they fall apart…

 

 

We could finish it now, turn our shaking hands into a handshake
We could finish it now, turn up shaking hands, shaking hands
We could call it a day, don’t have to agree, just say, just say just say it won’t wait
Don’t give your word, no need to be so brave

I don’t want to get on, I want it over

We could finish it now, turn our shaking hands into a handshake
We could finish it now, turn up shaking hands, shaking hands
