"My Happiness" as written by and Robert Maxwell....
I see your shadow on the street now
I hear you push through the rusty gate
Click of your heels on the concrete
Waiting for a knock coming way too late
It seems an age since I've seen you
Countdown as the weeks trickle into days

So you come in and put your bags down
I know there's something in the air
How can I do this to you right now
If you're over there when I need you here

My happiness is slowly creeping back
Now you're at home
If it ever starts sinking in
It must be when you pack up and go

It seems an age since I've seen you
Countdown as the weeks trickle into days
I hope that time hasn't changed you
All I really want is for you to stay

I know I know I know what is inside

    General CommentThis sounds like its describing getting someone back and not realizing how good it was to have them around until they were gone and never really getting to enjoy the moments while the other was there.

    General Commentnah the guys sad until she comes back, then all his happiness comes creeping back. then as soon as he realises how happy he is with her back, its time for her to go again.


    i think it describes every relationship that is seperated by distance, that one person who you think you could really make it work with, but if only they lived in the same place as you or you had the time to pursue it. anything where the one you love has to leave and you only have a short time with them. and youre only happy when yorue with them

    *Sigh*

    General CommentTo me, this song is about a relationship that the guy has a girlfriend and he cheated on her with some girl. That "some girl" makes him happy but yet his girlfriend is there. So when he sees that girl again he realizes how happy he is and how he knows they could be more and be the best of friends....but yet when he sees her after awhile he knnows that she will leave again*

    General Commentdefinitely about a long distance relationship. he has a sense of longing for her whenever she is not there... its like time drags by counting down the weeks until they form mere days... He can only realise happiness when he doesnt have it... a case of u dont know what u got til its gone
