Happiness

Elliott Smith

Activity's killing the actor
And a cop's standing out in the road turning traffic away
There was nothing she could do until after
When his body had been buried below, way back in the day

Oh my, nothing else could have been done
Made his life a lie so
He might never have to know anyone
Made his life the lie you know

I told him that he shouldn't upset her
And that he'd only be making it worse involving somebody else
But I knew that he'd never forget her
While her memory worked in reverse to keep her safe from herself

And oh my, nothing else could have been done
She made her life a lie so
She might never have to know anyone
Made her life the lie you know

What I used to be
Will pass away and then you'll see
That all I want now
Is happiness for you and me

What I used to be
Will pass away and then you'll see
That all I want now
Is happiness for you and me

What I used to be
Will pass away and then you'll see
That all I want now
Is happiness for you and me

All I want now is happiness for you and me
