I wanna be happy with all my smiling memories of you and your eyes.
And they make me wanna get up and run.
Like the farther I am away from you, the better off I'll be.
Where I can erase you and feel like I used to.
Oh where did that happy little boy with the afro go?
They say he gave this girl too much that when she left he forgot how to love.

You think that you know me, don't act like you do.
You wanna be happy, I'm saying you could.
You think that you know me, don't act like it's you who's in control when it's you who's losing.

Whatever you do don't make the same mistake, don't throw your heart away.
Without it you can only lose.
Whatever you do don't ruin everything, if you wanna be happy.

I just had this nightmare it was out of control.
They had me tied up with my face against the ground.
And there was nothing I could do.
And in that moment well my mind it turned to you and to a time when I was happy.
Like my thoughts could somehow change what was the truth.

And I flee from my shadows.
Back to you in my van.
Lying awake just talking.
And when my mind breaks through (breaks through.
And when I turn to reach for you, to tell you all that happened
Nobody's next to me.
And I rub my eyes like I'm surprised by what I know to be the truth.

Whatever you do, don't make the same mistake.
Without it you can only lose.
Whatever you do, don't ruin everything.
If you wanna be happy.
