It seems the things I've wanted in
My life I've never had.
So it's no surprise that living
Only leaves me sad.

Happiness, where are you?
I've searched so long for you.
Happiness, what are you?
I haven't got a clue.
Happiness, why do you have to stay
So far away... from me?

When I'm in despair and life has
Turned into a mess,
I know that I don't dare to end my
Search for happiness.

Happiness, where are you?
I've searched so long for you.
Happiness, what are you?
I haven't got a clue.
Happiness, why do you have to stay
So far away... from me?

Happiness, sometimes I think
I see you from afar.
When I run to catch you, though,
That's just not where you are.

Happiness, you know I'll get a hold of
You some way.
Until I do, you know I'll keep on
Searching every day.

Happiness, where are you?
I've searched so long for you.
Happiness, what are you?
I haven't got a clue.
Happiness, why do you have to stay
So far away... from me?

Gonna find it, gonna find it,
Gonna find my happiness.
Gonna find it, gonna find it,
Gonna find my happiness.

When I'm in despair and life has
Turned into a mess - gonna find it -
I know that I don't dare to end my
Search for happiness - gonna find my...

Happiness, where are you?
I'm gonna get to you.
Happiness, what are you?
I'll know before I'm through.
Happiness, you know you just can't stay
So far away... from me.

Gonna find my - Happiness where are you?
Gonna find it - I'm gonna get to you.
Gonna find my - Happiness what are you?
Gonna find it - I'll know before I'm through.
