"Not Quite Happiness" as written by Keith Michael Goodwin, Daniel Eliezer Schwartz and Timothy John Arnold....
That's the last I'll compromise
Before your perfect eyes
It's a dream that wakes you up
There's nothing like sleeping alone so much

You keep holding me back when I'm on my way
I could only forget if you let me stay
Then I'd leave when I want to give you some peace
But you couldn't believe there'd be times like these,
When I tell you the truth like I miss your touch
Or when you couldn't take that I laughed so much
If I told you to stay you would never want
To be standing alone like a setting sun

That's the last I'll compromise
Before your perfect eyes
It's the dream that wakes you up
There's nothing like sleeping alone so much

So you can go where you want without telling me
Take your life where you want never think of me
Cause I'm trying to live like I never have
But you couldn't believe there'd be times like that
When I tell you the truth like I miss your touch
Or when you couldn't take that I laughed so much
There's no way I could stay in the home you left
There are things in my life that I can't accept

That's the last I'll compromise
Before your perfect eyes
It's the dream that wakes you up
There's nothing like sleeping alone so much

That's the last I'll compromise
Before your perfect eyes
It's the dream that wakes you up
There's nothing like sleeping alone so much

There's nothing more empty than my own bed
I don't know where to go when I can't go home

    General CommentI really like this song for its characterization of a love that is "not quite happiness." Love is usually understood as an unfathomable elation far greater than happiness, while this song is expressing a love that is far different.
