"Happy Time" as written by and Daniel Johnson....
It must have been
It must have been
It must have been a happy time


The sun would shine
The candy bars
Kool Aid flowing like wine
The comic books

The TV shows
The bubble gum
The kitty cat

I was a time traveler
Listening to the heavenly laughter
Laurie was always with me
Ever after for ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever


The picture drawing
The pretend heroes
My favorite was Captain America
The little girl
The flowers in the yard
The dog and cat
The welcome mat

God told me to go out
Singing my songs and what not
Led me to the holy river baptism
Holy, holy, holy, holy, holy, holy, holy, holy


The GI Joes
The plastic monsters
My dad's model airplanes
Life magazines
The Bible stories
Simba the Lion
The King Kong

I was a cosmic child walking the second mile
I had to defeat the aliens
Bloody battle, fight to the finish
Fight, fight, fight, fight, fight


It must have been
It must have been
It must have been a happy time
Time, time, time, time, time

    General Commenti love this song so much, it captures all of daniel's innocence and emotion. not to mention the way it relates to absolutely everyone, and their constant grasping at childhood.

    im not one hundred percent sure which album this is from, but it appears to be about his larue nonetheless. quite an obvious meaning really, about the way he wishes he could go back to when everything was exaggerated and imagined, and a little less harsh and real.

    i love it.
    i love him.
    im not actually
