Happy Lyrics

by Matthew West

Three o'clock, tripping down the sidewalk
Looking like a fool with a pocket full of questions
I was living in the worry, moving in a hurry
In the wrong direction

But then suddenly it hit me
It doesn't really matter 'cause I got you with me
And I think I don't have to be so
Down, down, down, down, down

I should be happy, I should be happy, yeah, yeah
I should be living up these days
Just like I know who runs this place
Now that you found me, I should be happy

Three thirty, got a little dirty
Fear stuck its foot out and I tripped on the same lie
That voice screaming into my head
Pushing me to play dead, saying "Don't you even try"

But how can I claim to be free
When I carry more chains the world when they see me?
And I don't wanna be the fool who stays
Down, down, down, down, down

I should be happy, I should be happy, yeah, yeah
I should be living up these days
Just like I know who runs this place
Now that you found me, I should be happy

Now I'm not talking 'bout a smile so fake
While the world takes pictures 24/7
I just want my faith to be a little more real
What you see is what you get, what you see is how I feel, yeah, yeah

Well, I should be happy, I should be happy, yeah, yeah
I should be living up these days
Just like I know who runs this place
Now that you found me, I should be happy

I wanna be happy
Lord, I need to be happy
Why can't I be happy
Ooh, why can't we all just be happy
