"Happiness" as written by and Ido Zmishlany Whitney Phillips....
Singing oh, happiness
Singing oh, happiness

I got a homesick heart but a long ways left to go
I've been doing my part but I ain't got much to show
So I'm asking you to show me some forgiveness
It's all for you in my pursuit of happiness

Chasing that life, moving on 'cause I had to prove
There ain't no life worth doing what I did to you
So I'm asking you to show me some forgiveness
It's all for you in my pursuit of happiness

I got dreams that keep me up in the dead of night
Telling me I wasn't made for the simple life
There's a light I see, but it's far in the distance
I'm asking you to show me some forgiveness
It's all for you in my pursuit of happiness

Singing oh, happiness
Singing oh, happiness

I've been working all night, maybe you could help me to believe
This song ain't nothing if this song can't set you free
So I'm asking you to show me some forgiveness
It's all for you in my pursuit of happiness

I got dreams that keep me up in the dead of night
Telling me I wasn't made for the simple life
There's a light I see, but it's far in the distance
I'm asking you to show me some forgiveness
It's all for you in my pursuit of happiness

Singing oh, happiness
Singing oh, happiness

Sometimes you leave the ones you love
But if it's love, they won't give up
'Cause they know a war's raging and you gotta choose
These days are tough, these days are long
Sometimes it's hard, you carry on
But I hear a voice singing and I know it's true

I got dreams that keep me up in the dead of night
Telling me I wasn't made for the simple life
There's a light I see, but it's far in the distance
I'm asking you to show me some forgiveness
It's all for you in my pursuit of happiness

Singing oh, happiness
Singing oh, happiness
Oh, happiness
Singing oh, happiness

    My InterpretationThis song is a subtle act of repentance for pursuing success at any cost. The video shows several people running in the dead of night, with various modes of dress but all characterized by desperation. We see a (probable) drug addict, a scantily dressed woman running from someone (something), another woman in business attire obviously frazzled from running on the treadmill. Paying the price of pursuit of career, money, pleasure at the same time asking God to overlook the frantic pursuit -- that is what I see in this great video and song.
