The Pursuit of Happiness

Monday, April 27, 2009

You wake up in the morning, or at whatever time you do,
And stumble out of bed wondering what the day will bring to you.

”I will survive!” you sing aloud, as you check up on your peers,
The snippets of their life used to muffle all your fears

You've nothing better to do so you wait around all day,
But "I can't expect everyone to be as pathetic as me," you say

You try not to be a burden, and try your best to let them be,
But all those things unspoken just heighten your anxiety

Your paranoia gets the best of you, "of course they're running away!"
"But I do wish they would stay a while" you whisper in dismay

You'd be glad if you could voice it out, though you doubt you ever could,
"But if it means that much to you, yeah, its a risk but you still should!"

I ask, “what makes YOU happy? and you, and you, and you?
Because what makes ME happy is when YOU are happy too!”

This song is called Lakes of Canada, it's by Innocence Mission.

I hope (and think) you like it. :)

hey thanks for that - i've heard the sufjan cover of it before, very soothing and laid back...

You have! I feel like a pusher trying to sell to an addict then. :P

It's ironic that I've been playing the Sufjan cover on loop, but I heard the original version first. Dunno which one I like better though.
