"Happiness" as written by and Gnewikow Dodd....
Grace, don't ever be afraid.
Life has been heavy but don't lose your ways.
Take just take what you can.
You will never find all the pieces you gave away.

Don't look back, run from their teeth.
They don't understand the pain and the price you'll pay.
Watch the days filter your strength away until it's too late to see you happy again.

Grace, I watched her cry in her room when we were young.
Time never saved us from those days.
And I never found a reason to forget until I believed what you said.

Don't look back, run from their teeth.
They don't understand the pain and the price you'll pay.
Watch the days filter your strength away until it's too late to see you happy again.

I can't believe how you illuminate your beautiful face in the dark.
When the rest of the world might die without the sun,
But it'll always be fine.
Grace, I've tried so hard to do this on my own. But I'm nothing like you.
No, I'll never see life through without you.
Without you...

So don't look back, run from their teeth.
They don't understand the pain and the price you'll pay.
Watch the days filter your strength away until it's too late to see you happy again.

    My OpinionThis is such a beautiful song. It's a shame that this band isn't better known.

    I think this song is pretty straight forward. I think it's clearly about a girl (Grace?) who is depressed or suicidal and the singer is a friend trying to talk her out of it, telling her that he loves her.

    General CommentI dont think this song is straight forward because most of kennys songs are not.
    for some reason when i hear this i think of God/Jesus.
    yeah you may think im crazy but some of the lyrics make me feel that way..

    "They don't understand the pain and the price you'll pay."
    "I can't believe how you illuminate your beautiful face in the dark."
    "Grace, I've tried so hard to do this on my own. But I'm nothing like you.
    No, I'll never see life through without you.
    Without you..."

    that may have not been kennys intentions but thats what i get from some of the lines

    God Bless
