the present lyrics – lisa mitchell

we just wanna be happy,
happy in the present!

i broke out in the daylight,
i broke out on the street,
i p*ssed by everyone working,
making up their dreams

i call out to the heavens,
i heard everyone singing
‘we just wanna be happy,
happy in the present!’

do you hear them whisper on the wind?

do you hear ’em say,
‘we just wanna be happy,
happy in the present!’

i put one foot in front of the other,
it don’t always feel right
thought i saw it fly over ahead,
dark knight of the daylight!
oh, i get so anxious,
when i feel like i’m wasting
there’s no magic in regret,
like in the steps that i’m taking

do you hear them silent like the sun?

do you hear ’em say.
