SONGWRITING

Happiness

By: Laura Alford

Happiness is fleeting.
Happiness won’t last.
Happiness is feeling,
You finally
Outran the past.

Happy in the moment.
Happy just for now.
Happy is the poet,
Who writes
The wedding vow.

We soared
Higher than the eagles
Higher than the sun
Only half of it
Was legal
When we were
Having fun.
We laughed
Until I cried,
And then you
Laughed some more.
I’m pretty sure
You lied,
And now
We’re keeping score.

Happiness is winning.
Happiness is free.
Happiness is grinning
At the fool
In front of me.

Happy right this minute
Happy night and day
Happy in my birthday suit
With nothing in our way.

We soared
Higher than the eagles
Higher than the sun
Only half of it was legal
When we were having fun.
We laughed
Until I cried,
And then you
Laughed some more.
You’re pretty sure
I lied,
And now
We’re keeping score.

We soared
Higher than the eagles
Higher than the sun
Only half of it
Was legal
When we were
Having fun.
We laughed until
I cried,
And then you
Laughed some more.
We’re pretty sure
We’re tired,
Of always
Keeping score.
