"Happy" as written by Terrance Lee Sawchuk and Tom Douglas....
Moved into an apartment underneath some power lines
Maybe that's the reason we lost our minds
Maybe that's the reason

The rumble of a subway over our heads
The paint is cracked and peeling
Its probably filled with lead
And maybe thats the reason

That I'm standing on the edge
I can feel my heart pounding through my chest
Maybe I'll be okay, for another day
So I close my eyes and try to hear the voice
Above the noise that's telling me to be happy
Oh, to be happy

Standing outside your new house
I know you're inside but not alone
'Cause I left you messages
On your telephone
And maybe thats the reason, yeah


That I'm standing on the edge
I can feel my heart pounding through my chest
Maybe I'll be okay, for another day
So I close my eyes and try to hear the voice
Above the noise that's telling me to be happy
Oh, to be happy

But I turn this thing around
After you go
But no matter how hard I try
You're still on my mind

Now I'm standing on the edge
I can feel my heart pounding through my chest
Maybe I'll be okay, for another day
So I close my eyes and try to hear the voice
Above the noise that's telling me to be happy
Oh, to be happy

So I close my eyes
And I hear the voice telling me
Oh it keeps telling me

Now I'm on the edge
And I feel my heart telling me
Oh it keeps telling me
To be happy
