Can't Be Happy All The Time

Album: Single release only (2020)
  • As I fall asleep now
    I think of all the paths I've taken
    That lead me back to here
    And I wonder
    Is life at its peak now?
    Is it stuck in first gear?
    When will it all disappear?

    And time keeps passin' by
    But I'm too busy to reply
    And as I close my eyes
    I say that I won't go tonight
    I'm lookin' for a sign
    My only friends have been online
    And as I close my eyes
    I tell myself I'm fine

    And I don't wanna cry
    But now it's hard to breathe
    And now everybody's standin' here
    But no one seems to know me
    And I'm alright
    Tomorrow I'll be fine
    'Cause you can't be happy
    You can't be happy all the time
    You can't be happy all the time
    You can't be happy all the time

    As I walk through the streets now
    I realize I don't know where I'm goin'
    I don't know why I'm here
    And if I live just to please without showin'
    Do I lose myself here?
    Am I living by fear?

    And time keeps passin' by
    But I'm too busy to reply
    And as I close my eyes
    I say that I won't go tonight
    I'm lookin' for a sign
    My only friends have been online
    And as I close my eyes
    I tell myself I'm fine

    And I don't wanna cry
    But now it's hard to breathe
    And now everybody's standin' here
    But no one seems to know me
    And I'm alright
    Tomorrow I'll be fine
    'Cause you can't be happy
    You can't be happy all the time
    You can't be happy all the time
    You can't be happy all the time Writer/s: Toni Watson
