if you had one wish, one chance
to leave this lousy life behind
oh, baby, would you take it
and vanish to heaven
stars in your eyes
and you'd come back to earth never?
oh my god, take me, take me

if you had one piece of advice
to drive the unhappy times away
oh, sugar, would you say "die!"
would you tell us to beat it
put all our clothes and books in piles
and leave them on the ground?
take me, take me there, yeah
happy happy happy happy everywhere

so you're worried, I know
but let me tell you something
you don't have much longer to go
noooooo
baby yeah, baby yeah

you're writing postcards to yourself
and they read: "I'm sad and I wish that you were here."
did you think you'd never find out?
or still in October
thinking through things
it's taken years to get over
oh my god, take me, take me away
happy happy happy happy everyday

so you're worried, I know
but let me tell you something
you don't have much longer to go

fall on your knees
lend an ear to hosts rejoicing
be kind, be still, be near
be kind, be still, be near

so you're worried, I know
but let me tell you something
you don't have much longer to go
don't have much longer to go
don't have much longer to go
noooooo
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
