"Bluebird of Happiness" as written by Neil Halstead and Ian Mccutcheon....
Gotta find a way to get home strong
Gotta find a way back home

Gotta find a light to guide me along
Gotta find a way back home

Running for your life won't get you so far
Running for your life so far

Gotta find to bring me home slow
Gotta find a way back home

The loving in your eye that holds you alive
Gotta find a way back home

Gotta find a way to get home strong
Gotta find a way back home

Gotta find a road that brings me back slow
Gotta find a way back home

Gotta find a way to get home strong
Gotta find a way back home

Saw you turning
Big eyes burning on your way
Nothing out there
The time to tell you what you own

Never wanted to feel this pain
Never wanted to feel so sad
Never wanted to feel this pain
Today
Today

Never wanted to feel this pain
Never watned to feel so sad
Never wanted to feel this way
No
Today
Today

Never wanted to feel this pain
Never wanted to feel this pain

Gotta find a way to get home strong
Gotta find a way back home

Gotta find a light to guide me along
Gotta find a way back home

Never wanted to feel this pain
Never wanted to feel this pain

Gotta find a road that brings me back slow
Gotta find a way back home

The loving in your eye that holds you alive
Gotta find a way back home

Gotta find a way to get home strong
Gotta find a way back home

Gotta find a road that brings me back slow
Gotta find a way back home

Gotta find a way to get home strong
Gotta find a way back home
Gotta find a way back home
Gotta find a way back home

    My OpinionI can't believe no one has commented on this song yet. It is so gorgeous. Every time I feel homesick, every time I long for that feeling of belonging and open arms I listen to this song. If you like this song, you all should look up the 'Bluebird of Happiness' EP. There are 5 different versions of the song, each GORGEOUS in its own way.

    General CommentHalf way through, the song suddenly shifts into these wonderful guitar riffs with the line "saw you turning, big eyes burning...". And, as quickly as the guitars come in, they disappear with equal abruptness.
    If you don't know the lyrics, the beautiful electric guitar chords sound so joyful and energetic - contrasting sharply with the melancholy of the piano pieces. But as soon as you listen to the lyrics, the guitars suddenly sound so very sad. They unleash this deep hidden sadness that you couldn't pick up the first few times. It works in perfect harmony with the lyrics.

    It's an absolutely terrific song.
    Beautifully written.
    I simply love it. =)

    General CommentThis song makes me think about how hard it is to define humanity. The title reminds me of how happy everyone else can look while I am unhappy. They're bluebirds over there, I and I feel resentful of the way they're escaping the very human experience of isolation. But then again, with them is where I want to be. With others is where home is. And it's also that thing about depression - looking people in the face just does wonders for your mind.
    By the way, this song was used in the movie Paper Man, about a socially estranged writer who's trying to figure out how to socialize like a normal person.
