Here's something funny
Gone is the one I love
I've got some money
I'm hitting Piper's Pub
Tonight I'll drink until
The sun come's up
Cause I don't care no more
I'm going to fill my cup
Life isn't fair for sure, it's clear
I've had enough

I can't stop laughing
I can't stop laughing
I can't stop laughing
I'm not even happy

She said she's had it.
That she was moving out
It hit me so hard,
I'm trying to drown it out
Tonight's the night
I'll dance like no one's watching
And I'll sing a song like nobody
Is listening
Cause I'm just that drunk and
Heartaches blurred my vision
Ain't it fun?

I can't stop laughing
I can't stop laughing
I can't stop laughing
I'm not even happy

Where will I go now
The life I knew is gone
Someway and somehow
We all keep moving
On and on and on and on
Tonight, tonight c'mon and
Set me free from yesterday
And all it's haunted memories
But now it's closing time
And I don't wanna leave

I can't stop laughing
I can't stop laughing
I can't stop laughing
I'm not even happy

I can't stop laughing
I can't stop laughing
I can't stop laughing
I'm not even happy

    General CommentMaybe one of my favorite songs on this album, which is an amazing album. Not 100% sure what this song is really about, but to me, it's the end of a relationship which has only been going through the motions for the past while. The guy had 'checked out' for the relationship long ago and now just wants to enjoy himself and doesn't really care that it's over and done with. Good chance I'm far off on the meaning but just kinda how I see it. Maybe he is actually hurting a lot and the only way he can deal with it is to drink away the pain. The more I listen, the more I pick up on little things. All in all, amazing song, great job with this one!

    General CommentColin says on the Friends and Total Strangers DVD that he ran into Ron Hines (whos a fantastic Canadian Songwriter) somewhere in NFLD and Ron told him to write a song with "I cant stop laughing, I'm not even happy" in it.
