Happy Now

Album: The Circle (2009)
  • What would you say to me
    If I told you I had a dream
    If I told you everything
    Would you tell me to go back to sleep

    Take a look in these tired eyes
    They're coming back to life
    I know I can change, got hope in my veins
    I'm telling you I ain't going back to the pain

    [Chorus]
    Can I be happy now?
    Can I let my breath out
    Let me believe
    I'm building a dream
    Don't try to drag me down

    I just wanna scream out loud
    Can I be happy now?
    Been down on my knees
    I learned how to bleed
    I'm turning my world around

    Can I be happy now
    Can I break free somehow
    I just wanna live again
    Love again
    Pick my pride up off of the ground

    I'm ready to pick a fight
    Crawl out of the dark to shine a light
    I ain't throwing stones, got sins of my own
    Ain't everybody just trying to find a way home

    [Chorus]

    I just wanna scream out loud
    Can I be happy now?
    Been down on my knees
    I learned how to bleed
    I'm turning my world around

    You're born then you die, it's all gone in a minute
    I ain't looking back, 'cause I don't want to miss it
    You better live now
    'Cause no one's going to get out alive, alive

    [Chorus]

    I just wanna scream out loud
    Can I be happy now?
    Been down on my knees
    I learned how to bleed
    I'm turning my world around

    Can I be happy now? (oh, oh, oh)
    I'm turning my world around

    Can I be happy now? Writer/s: RICHIE SAMBORA, JON BON JOVI, DESMOND CHILD
