Happy, they say
is the feeling I should have each day
But today just isn't so
Because of the things that make me feel so low.
Happy songs are out of my mind
Loneliness is all I can find
I hum by myself the sad melody
as the silent tears share its harmony.
But I know that this will end
Surely, there's help that heaven will send
So I'll push the gloomy thoughts aside
And pray that I might have the strength inside.
Now I know just what to do
For me to stop feeling so blue
To help lighten up my day
I would keep a smile and a prayer.
