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

and then I'm nursed back to health
by the sadist songs I love so much
I just curl up next to those minor chords

and it fills my head up with the sounds I want to hear

It's cool, just leave me here on the ground
If I get up now what's to stop me from falling 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 every where I turn I'm haunted by the images
of your face inside magazine and I can't help but get depressed

But my ashtray as it overflows
is as good as a 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
so like that clock I could 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!
