happiness lyrics – elliott smith

activity is killing the acter
and a cop’s standing out on the road
turning traffic away
there was nothing she could do until after
when his body’d been buried below
way back in the day
oh my
nothing else could have been done
made his life a lie so
he might
never have to know anyone
made his life a lie, you know
i told him that he shouldn’t upset her
and that he’d only be making it worse
invloving somebody else
but i knew that he’d never forget her
while her memory worked in reverse
to keep her safe from herself
and oh my
nothing else could have been done
she made her life a lie so
she might
never have to know anyone
made her life a lie, you know
what i used to be
will p*ss away
and then you’ll see
that all i want now
is happiness
for you and me
what i used to be
will p*ss away
and then you’ll see
that all i want now
is happiness
for you and me
what i used to be
will p*ss away
and then you’ll see
that all i want now
is happiness
for you and me
all i want now
is happiness
for you and me
