Lacking Happiness

I try to convince them that I'm okay
They think that I am here to stay
Maybe they'll realize when I finally lay
That I was never happy

They never knew the pain in my heart
It's been there from the very start
It's something that will never part
I wish that I was happy

Everything was overlooked
Once I started, I was hooked
The scars weren't the only things I took
If only I were happy

I did this for your very own sake
It was a deal I had to make
For this, I'll go jump in a lake
And finally be happy

You were so busy with the bills
Maybe I should go take some pills
Since then, it all went straight downhill
And I paid the price of happiness

I wish I could escape and fly
Far away up in the sky
To you, I say my last goodbyes
Maybe now I'll truly be happy
