Happy Days

  • Hey kid, don't quit your daydream yet
    I know you feel locked out in the cold
    Seems like you're lost and alone
    Hey kid, don't listen to your head
    It only fills you with dread and with doubt
    Left lookin' for an easy way out

    I know you don't know
    Oh, no, you don't know

    I wanna feel happy days, happy days
    Happy days, happy days
    Walls of isolation inside of my pain
    And I don't know if I'm ready to change
    I wanna feel happy days, happy days
    Happy days, happy days
    All of this frustration inside of my brain
    And I don't know if I'm ready to change

    Some nights you call for the jaws of life
    To pull you out of the crash
    A forgotten ghost from your past
    When enough doesn't cut it
    When you're backed up against a wall
    Is it the life that you wanted?
    When you could never have it all?

    I wanna feel happy days, happy days
    Happy days, happy days
    Walls of isolation inside of my pain
    And I don't know if I'm ready to change
    I wanna feel happy days, happy days
    Happy days, happy days
    All of this frustration inside of my brain
    And I don't know if I'm ready to change

    Face down in the deep end
    Face down every weekend
    Face down and I'm bleeding
    There's no sound when you're leaving
    We faced all of our demons
    We chased all of our dreams and
    We don't know where it leads us
    We don't care at all

    I wanna feel happy days, happy days
    Happy days, happy days
    Walls of isolation inside of my pain
    And I don't know if I'm ready to change
    I wanna feel happy days, happy days (face down in the deep end)
    Happy days, happy days (face down every weekend)
    All of this frustration inside of my brain
    And I don't know if I'm ready to change
    I wanna feel happy days Writer/s: Mark Hoppus, Matthew Malpass, Samuel Hollander, Tim Pagnotta, Travis Barker
