happy girl lyrics – martina mcbride

i used to live in a darkened room
had a face of stone
and a heart of gloom

lost my hope, i was so far gone
cryin’ all my tears
with the curtains drawn

i didn’t know until my soul broke free
i’ve got these angels watching over me

oh watch me go
i’m a happy girl
everybody knows
that the sweetest thing you’ll ever see
in the whole wide world
is a happy girl

i used to hide in a party crowd
bottled up inside
feeling so left out

standing in a corner wearing concrete shoes
with my frozen smile
and my lighted fuse

now every time i start to feel like that
i roll my heart out like a welcome mat

oh watch me go
i’m a happy girl
everybody knows
that the sweetest thing you’ll ever see
in the whole wide world
is a happy girl

laugh when i feel like it
cry when i feel like it
that’s just how my life is
that’s how it goes

oh watch me go
i’m a happy girl
and i’ve come to know
that the world won’t change
just ’cause i complain
let the axis twirl
i’m a happy girl

oh watch me go
i’m a happy girl
everybody knows
that the sweetest thing you’ll ever see
in the whole wide world
is a happy girl

oh, yeah
oh, yeah
i’m a happy girl
