happiness

a friend of mine said almost this exact thing last night, so this goes up in tribute to richard (who knows both more and less than anyone else i know).

"Nevermind me ícause Iíve been dead
Out of my body been out of my head
Nevermind the songs they hum
Donít want to sing along
Thereís nothiní that I said

Thatíll bring you happiness happiness
Is hard to come by I confess
Iím bad at this thing happiness
If you find it share it with the rest of us

Nevermind the words that came
Out of my mouth when all that I could feel was pain
The difference in the two of us
Comes down to the way
You rise over things I just put down

Thatíll bring you happiness happiness
Is hard to come by I confess
Iím bad at this thing happiness
If you find it share it with the rest of us


Nevermind me ícause Iíve been dead
Out of my body been out of my head
Nevermind the curse I wore
Proud like a badge
Till it just donít shine no more

Thatíll bring you happiness happiness
Is hard to come by I confess
Iím bad at this thing happiness
If you find it share it with the rest of us
Rest of us"
