I AM A HAPPY MAN

I’M JUST A HAPPY MAN

I AM GOOD WITH WHAT I DON’T HAVE

I SAID I’M A HAPPY MAN

I AM GOOD WITH WHAT I DON’T HAVE

YOU TRIED TO MAKE ME THINK THAT I’M NOT YOU

YOU TRIED TO MAKE ME WANT TO LOOK THE OTHER WAY

YOU TRIED TO MAKE ME FUMBLE

YOU TRIED TO THINK THAT YOU HAD A BETTER SAY

BUT I DON’T THINK YOU KNEW ME

NO I DON’T THINK YOU UNDERSTAND

BUT I NOW KNOW THAT I’M NOT LOOKING OTHER PLACES

I’M GOOD WITH WHO I AM

SO DON’T YOU TRY TO CHANGE ME

DON’T YOU TRY TO DO THINGS

DON’T YOU TRY TO MAKE ME JUST LIKE YOU

DON’T YOU TRY TO MAKE ME SOMEONE THAT I’M NOT

I KNOW I CAN’T TAKE THE BAIT ANY LONGER

TRYING TO GET BY

YOU CAN SAY I FELL DOWN IN A PERFECT PLACE I CAN’T SAY MUCH

I FELT THE PEACE OF GOD COME TO MY SOUL NOW I KNOW I’M ON THE ROAD

 YOU GOT ME NOW YOU SEE ME NOW I CAN SE YOU LOOK AT ME

AND I KNOW THAT IT’S ALL JUST TRUE FOR YOU BUT NOT FOR ME CAUSE I’M BLIND

BUT I’M TRYING TO FIND THE END OF THE ROAD

I’M JUST TRYING TO GET ON BY

YES I’M TRYING JUST TO FIND THE PLACE IN THE SUN

I’M JUST TRYING TO GET BY

I SAID I’M TRYING JUST TO FIND MY PLACE IN THE SUN

I JUST WANNA GET BY

I SAID I’M TRYING JUST TO FIND MY PLACE IN THE SUN

I JUST WANNA GET BY

WELL IT’S KIND OF COLD OUT HERE TRYING TO DO THE THINGS I DO

I TRY TO MAKE EVERYTHING TURN OUT GOOD

I CAN TRY TO BRAKE AND MAKE EVERYBODY SEE MY WAY

BUT FOR SOME REASON IT DOESN’T MAKE IT TRUE

AND IF ALL THE TIMES THAT I TRY TO MAKE EVERYTHING GO RIGHT

EVERYTHING SEEMS TO GO WRONG

BUT NOW I’M JUST STUCK IN A RUT BEHIND SOME ROCK

CAN’T EVEN GET MY HEAD OUT WHAT TO DO

SO WHAT TO DO SO WHAT DO I SAY CAN I MOVE AM I TIED UP THAT’S RIGHT

THERE’S ONLY SO MUCH TIMEIN LIFE WHAT CAN I DO

CAN I FIND WHAT THE ANSWERS ARE THERE

I’M KNOCKING ON THE DOOR WHERE ARE YOU

CAN I FIND WHERE THE THINGS IN LIFE

 WHERE TWO CAN BE ONE

 CAN I FIND WHERE I CAN SEE AN OPEN DOOR

CLIMB UP A MOUNTAIN TO FIND THE PEAK AND LOOK AROUND THE LAND

CAN I KNOW WHERE I AM GOING

OR AM I JUST HELD HOSTAGE

SET YOU FREE

YOU KNOW THE ROPES YET YOU GOT IT ALL BACKWARDS

THERE’S SO MUCH TO DELIVER BUT YOU’RE NOT THERE

IT’S KIND A LIKE THE STORY THAT YOU FOUND IN THE DIME STORE

DON’T YOU KNOW GIRL

WE WANT YOU NEW BUT YOU CAN’T BELIEVE ALL THAT

YOU WANT A DRIVE UP BUT IT’S NOT JUST A CARRY OUT

WE CAN’T MAKE EVERYTHIN SO BEAUTIFUL FOR YOU GIRL

YOU CAN’T SAY DIE SO DON’T YOU PLAY THAT FIDDLE

WHEN THE PUSH AND THE PULL SEEM TO DROP DOWN IN THE MIDDLE

ALL I WANT FROM YOU IS TO KNOW THAT WE CARE AND THAT’S NOT JUST A LITTLE GIRL

NEVER SAW IT GIRL I NEVER THOUGHT YOU’LD NEVER

IT’S ONLY IN THE WEATHER THAT I’M FEELING YOU

I WISH I COULD BE THERE AND YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN

SO EVEN FROM A DISTANCE I AM STILL HERE BELIEVING

THAT NO MATTER WHAT RESISTANCE OR EVEN IF YOU DON’T SEE IT

 THERE’S A BETTER WAY GIRL

MAYBE YOU SAY CAN’T BUT I CAN SEE YOU JUMP FAR

THERE’S NO CHANCE IN HELL THAT I WILL LET YOU NOW FALL

I GOT YOU COVERED FROM THE BACK SO JUST TRUST ME

WHEN I SAY I WANT TO SET YOU FREE

SO WHAT YOU SAY WHEN IT’S OVER AND DONE NOW

WHAT YOU GUNNA DO WHEN THERE’S NO ONE AROUND YA

ARE YOU GUNNA BLAME THE WORLD OR TAKE THE HIGH ROAD

I WANT TO SET YOU FREE

TUESDAY

TUESDAYS THE DAY  OF DAWNING DO YOU THINK IT’S COMING

RAMBLING DOWN THE ROAD MY MIND IS FOAMING

CRUMBLING WALLS OF STRAW MORE POWER TO YA

I SEE THAT TUESDAY ISN’T GOOD FOR ME AND YOU

WE SHOULD JUST HIDE OUR HEADS IN THE SAND

TUESDAYS THE DAY OF DAWN DO YOU FEEL LIKE DROWNING

MORNINGS KIND OF A LIFT I SEE YOU RUNNING

FEELING LIKE A MORBID STATE DO YOU WANT TO JUMP IN

BEING A FEABLE WRECK A CATEGORY TEN

I SEE THAT TUESDAY ISN’T GOOD FOR ME AND YOU

WE SHOULD JUST HIDE OUR HEADS IN THE SAND

IT’S JUST AND UGLY DAY

IYOU KNOW IT’S COMING SOON

CAN’T WAIT FOR THE END

CAN’T WAIT FOR THE END

TUESDAYS THE DAY OF DAWN DON’T YOU SEE IT COMING

MORNINGS LIKE A LULL DO YOU FEEL LIKE MUMBLING

EVERYTHING DONE IS GONE IS COMING TO DEPEND ON

IT’S LIKE A BEGINNING STORY WITHOUT THE ENDING

TUESDAYS A DAY OF DAWN IT’S YOUR APPEARING

MORNING IS DEAD AND GONE ARE YOU HEARING

WEDNESDAY IS CLOSE IT’S NOW ON THE HORIZON

SO BE IT AS IT MAY JUST PUT THE GLOVES ON

SLIPPING

I WAS SLIPPING DOWN BETWEEN THE CRACKS

I WAS DRIPPING FROM THE SWEAT THAT’S ON MY BACK

THERE WAS MORE THAN I WAS ABLE IT WAS MORE THAN I COULD TAKE

I WAS SLIPPING THROUGH THE CRACKS

I WAS MAKING AN ADJUSTMENT TO MY LIFE

I WAS NOT FAKING I WAS TRYING WITH ALL MY MIGHT

I WAS SEEING ALMOST EMPTY AND I THOUGHT I WAS GUNNA DIE

CAUSE I WAS FEELING LIKE I’M SLIPPING

NOW I’M BENDING I THOUGHT I’D NEVER COME UNGLUED

I WAS MENDING WHAT I DEALT WAS MISUNDERSTOOD

I WAS DRIVEN BY THE RULES AND I WAS MINDING MY OWN BIZ

BUT IT CAME SO CLOSE TO ME I NEVER THOUGHT WHAT IS WHAT IS

I WAS SLIPPING SLIPPING THROUGH THE CRACKS

DRIPPING I FEEL IT CRAWLING DOWN MY BACK

I WAS TRYING TO MAKE A MOVE TRY TO FEEL MY WAY

I’LL JUST REMAIN HERE ON SLIPPING FOR THE REST OF THE DAY

CAUSE I AM SLIPPING I CAN NEVER GO ON BACK

CAUSE I AM DRIPPING THERE’S JUST SWEAT UPON MY BACK

I STARTED IN THE WOMB NOT A CHOICE THAT I MADE

BUT NOW I’M SLIPPING THROUGH THE CRACKS

THERE’S NOW A VOICE I NEED TO MAKE

SLIPPING SLIPPING THROUGH THE CRACKS

DRIPPING I FEEL IT CRAWLING DOWN MY BACK

I WAS TRYING TO MAKE A MOVE I TRY TO FEEL MY WAY

I’LL JUST REMAIN HERE ON SLIPPING FOR THE REST OF THE DAY

TAKE ME

WHAT COMES TO MIND DON’T YOU THINK OF YOUR LOAD

THERE’S GOT TO BE SOME PEACE

COME AND TAKE ME

ALL I’VE KNOWN IS THAT GIRL YOU’VE NEVER SHOWN ME

WHAT’S IN LIFE

AND WHO’S THE ONE TO RATE ME

DON’T YOU KNOW THAT LIES DON’T COMPARE

SO DON’T YOU DARE

CAN’T YOU FEEL WHEN YOU’RE NOT SETTLED DOWN

DON’T YOU SEE WHEN YOU’RE NOT

DOWN DOWN DOWN DOWN

TAKE ME GIRL

CAN’T YOU SEE THAT I’M NOT THE SAME AS THE ONE WHO STANDS WHEN YOU’RE ALONE

DON’T YOU KNOW THAT GIRL ALL IS GOOD

SO THERE’S GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY TO DEAL WITH THE PAIN

YOU KNOW GIRL THAT YOU REALLY KNOW

YOU’VE NEVER SEEN LIGHT LIKE THE LIGHT OF DAY

YOU THINK IT’S COMING THAT IT’S COMING YOUR WAY

YOU’VE THOUGHT BEFORE THEN YOU FELT THE WRONG

I AM HERE I AM WAITING FOR SO LONG

COME AND TAKE ME GIRL

MAKE ME FEEL I’M THE ONE

CRACKS

I LEFT YOU BACK AT NINE

AND I LEFT YOU HIGH AND DRY

YOU WERE A NEIGHBOR I COULDN’T SEE PAST THE CORNER

I WASN’T TRYING TO MAKE IT NEW

I WASN’T TRYING TO SEE ON THROUGH

THERE WAS MORE THAN SEEDS A GROWING ON THE FORTY

IT’ DOESN’T TAKE MORE THAN ALL THIS

IT DIDN’T TAKE MORE THAN A KISS

YOU GOT A LIFE YOU GOT IT ALL YOU COULDN’T MISS ME

I WASN’T TRYING TO MAKE A SCENE

I WASN’T TRYING TO LIE FOR ME

YOU CAN MAKE MORE THAN YOU ARE YOU CAN SENSE THAT

WELL I KIND OF FELL RIGHT THROUGH THE CRACKS

I WASN’T TRYING TO MAKE YOU LAUGH

I WANTED MORE THAN ALL THE PAST YOU GOT ME GOING

AND I CAN SEE THAT I’M A WRECK

AND YET I KNOW THAT I’M OKAY

BUT I NEVER GOT YOU BACK SO GOES THE LINGER ON AND ON AND ON

I KIND OF FELT WEIRD AND AMISS

AND I KNEW THAT I HAD MISSED

I WASN’T KIND

I WASN’T KIND

ALL I KNOW AND AS FOR NOW

YOU COLD OF TAKIN ME AND HOW

NEVER LEFT ME SEE

SEE ME FALL THROUGH THE CRACKS OH
