"Happy Sad" as written by Gemma Claire Hayes and Stephin Raymond Merritt....
My dirty joy, my laden back
My will to live is under attack
I have the days when it comes easy
My blue eyed boy got show and tell
I need your laugh to make me well
No light is coming through my window

Gotta meet you face to face
Convince you that I'm not so strange
Just happy sad
I'm broken down
But I'm okay, upbeat when you come around
I'm happy sad and it comes easy to me
I'm never one or the other

You have knocked me off my track
One lap to go and now I'm last
You know I used to be so eager
Get up, get up, get out of bed
The brightest day that ever led
You know you make me want to try harder

[Chorus]

My friends are few, but that's okay
'cause when you're around it all just fades away
My sadder boy

I'm happy sad
I'm broken down
But I'm upbeat when you come around
I'm happy sad
And it comes easy to me
I'm never one or the other

The roads don't love you, they still don't pretend to
The roads don't love you, they still don't pretend to

    General CommentSuch a great song, on a brilliant album.
    This song, to me, is about someone who seems to be bi-polar, going from happiness to sadness in a glance, and having that cycle repeat over and over again. Until they meet this one person, and that person allows them to just be happy, giving them hope more than anything.
