Hello, boys and girls
Hello, posterity
If you can hear my voice
You must still be free
Here's a lonely song
Written for your sake
Here is some advice
You may or may not take

There's no crystal ball
To show you the days
There's no hanging lamp
To light your way
There's no hidden trail
To navigate this land
There is no one here
To hold your hand

There is one thing that I would like to know
Please tell me

Are you happy today?
Tell me honestly
Is the place where you stand
Where you wanna be?
If you're shaking your head
You are wasting your time
You are much too young
To be resigned

You will not be shown
Where true love resides
You'll be deep in debt
Before you claim that prize
Put faith in yourself
Before you look above
Spend more time than money
On everyone you love

And I'm telling you this now because I know
How this life goes

Are you happy today?
Tell me honestly
Is the place where you stand
Where you wanna be?
If you're shaking your head
You are wasting your time
You are much too young
To be resigned

And when you're thinking that your life's a mess
'Bout all the things that you don't possess
Just be glad your heart is beating
And one question there's repeating:

Are you happy today?
Tell me honestly
Is the place where you stand
Where you wanna be?
If you're shaking your head
You are wasting your time
You are much too young
To be resigned

Don't be resigned
Don't be resigned
Don't be resigned
Don't be resigned
