Lyric "Happiness Is An Option"

(It is not easy)
(It is not easy)

Looking from a window
At the back of a house
At the edge of a town
It's grey
Like the day when I lost it
Clouds overhead
I talked to a flower that was almost dead
My body a prison
Why did I do it?
Someone warned me not to but I still went through it
(Even in a song, you gotta remember that happiness is an option)

(It is not easy)
But don't give up now (so don't give up)
(It is not easy)
Happiness is an option (that happiness is an option)

Needed somewhere to clear my head
Find some strength
A warmer bed
Maximum love in a minimal world
I'd never achieved it
But then I believed it
So when I lost it, how?
I'm not sure now
It was a strange feeling
Like a law repealing itself

(It is not easy)
But don't give up now (so don't give up)
(It is not easy)
Happiness is an option (that happiness is an option)
(It is not easy)
But don't give up now (so don't give up)
(It is not easy)
Happiness is an option (giving it up, you feel like giving it up)

I can wake up in the morning
And not believe what I see
Look in the mirror
And think if that's really me
I don't think I suit my face
It's not a catastrophe
It's more a philosophy
Like the Russians wondering why
We're born under a blue sky
But die in a dark forest

(It is not easy)
But don't give up now (so don't give up)
(It is not easy)
Happiness is an option (happiness is an option)
(It is not easy)
But don't give up now (so don't give up)
(It is not easy)
Happiness is an option (happiness is an option)

This is neither old nor new
It's always, forever
Somewhere between sense and ambition
Pleasure and decision
We have to make a choice
What do we want?
Everyone singing 'War! What is it good for?'
While planning the next one?
I don't need to win
You don't have to lose
We can choose
Happiness is an option

(It is not easy)
(You can choose yeah!)
But don't give up now (so don't give up)
(It is not easy)
Happiness is an option (happiness is an option)
It is not easy (no, not easy)
The war within us (the war within us)
But it gets easier (gets easier)
The more we learn (the more we learn)
I don't need to win (I don't need to win, now)
You don't have to lose (you don't have to lose)
We can choose
Happiness is an option

(It is not easy)
But don't give up now (so don't give up)
(It is not easy)
Happiness is an option (happiness is an option)
I don't need to win (I don't need to win, now)
You don't have to lose (you don't have to lose)
We can choose (oo)
Happiness is an option
