Track Name: Happy Being Miserable
Good morning sunlight
It's been a while since we had a chat
I've grown accustomed to the night
and the dark clouds in the sky

I've been thinking a lot lately
More specifically I've been drinking a lot
and feeling sorry for myself

but I was nursed back to health
by the sadist songs I love so much
I curled up to those minor chords
and it fills my head up with the sounds I love to hear

It's cool, just leave me here on the ground
If I stand up now I'll just fall right back down
down Thanks for trying to cheer me up
But between you and me
I'm perfectly happy being miserable

I made a conscious effort
to clear my mind these thoughts
of jealousy of all your new found success

But it's just that every where I turn I'm haunted by the images
of your face inside of magazines, I can't help but feel depressed

but I was nursed back to health
by the sadist songs I love so much
I curled up to those minor chords
and it fills my head up with the sounds I love to hear

It's cool, just leave me here on the ground
If I stand up now what's to keep me from falling back down
down Thanks for trying to cheer me up
But between you and me
I'm perfectly happy being miserable

But my ashtray as it overflows
is just like that clock on the wall
It's shows how long time can feel like no time at all
and how I've tried to slow it down
and like that clock I could just hang around

and I could stay young and not have to grow old
and stay true to the words in the tales that I've told
and make peace with mistakes and regrets of my past
because this isn't my first life and it won't be my last!
