[Intro]
Happy hurts sometimes, Oh
Blame it on the monsters in my mind
I’ve been getting better at slowly getting worse, oh
What’s wrong with me when happy hurts? Happy hurts

[Verse 1]
This on again off again temperamental affection
For my darling depression is making me go mad
I hear there’s a fine line between crazy and sad
But i can’t tell a difference up close
There’s a lot of us you know, ill and un-diagnosed
But i don’t need a piece of paper to tell me what i already know
I’m not alright for tonight can we let that be alright?
Pick up the battle again in the morning light
[Pre-Chorus]
And I’m fighting so hard to come out of the dark
Trying to turn off the night finally let in the light
Trying to make my misery just a piece of my history
A little less victim a little more victory

[Chorus]
Happy hurts sometimes, Oh
Blame it on the monsters in my mind. Oh
I’ve been getting better at slowly getting worse, oh
What’s wrong with me when happy hurts? Happy hurts

[Verse 2]
So today i feel okay guess it was all just in my head
I just need to try harder i guess…
Yeah everyone else in the world seems to be doing alright
“Yeah i’m alright” for tonight can we let the pain and the happy mix?
Can the two coexist? The beauty next to the mess
Because i swear i have them both already beating in my chest
If that makes me crazy the numbers don’t lie
But i don’t call that crazy i call that being alive

[Pre-Chorus]
And I’m fighting so hard to come out of the dark
Trying to turn off the night finally let in the light
Trying to make my misery just a piece of my history
A little less victim a little more victory please

[Chorus]
Happy hurts sometimes, Oh
Blame it on the monsters in my mind. Oh
I’ve been getting better at slowly getting worse, oh
What’s wrong with me when happy hurts? Happy hurts

[Bridge[
If i had to pick between the way that i am and the way that everybody else seems to pretend
I wouldn’t consider it not for even a second between psycho and sanity it’s not even a question
My favorite part of my self seems to make the least sense, all the cracks in my skin they just let the light in
My favorite part of my self seems to make the least sense
All the cracks in my skin let the light in

[Chorus]
Happy hurts sometimes, Oh
All i want’s the one thing i can’t find
I’ve been getting better at slowly getting worse, oh
What’s wrong with me when happy hurts?
What’s wrong with me when happy hurts?
I’ve been getting better at slowly getting worse, oh
What’s wrong with me when happy hurts?
Happy hurts
