HAPPY'S JUST AN ILLUSION

Written By: DAN MORRISSEY/JONNY COTTINGHAM

Happy’s Just an Illusion

He wore his heart upon his sleeve
And you could see he was a troubled boy
He took the lonely choice
A man without a voice

He wouldn’t speak, he never dared
And he was blind to what he had to see
Where his mind had been
Float his life upstream

He didn’t fit into this life
For some reason he could never see
Just why that might be
Trying to believe

You need some time
Think it over
What will you do?

Panic and confusion
Look at the way it’s turning out
Happy’s just an illusion
We can just make do for now

The penny dropped he looked at me
And though it wasn’t an epiphany
Laid it bare to see
It was you and me
Getting harder to describe
I always said that I would never tell
But I might as well
You put me on the shelf

You need some time
Think it over
What will you do?

Panic and confusion
Look at the way it’s turning out
Happy’s just an illusion
We can just make do for now

Yeah tell me something I don’t know
Yeah tell me where and I will go
Yeah got to tell I’ve a right to know
Yeah tell me something I don’t know

I know I can wait
I’ve waited this long
I’ve drifted alone
I know I can

Panic and confusion
Look at the way it’s turning out
Happy’s just an illusion
We can just make do for now
Panic and confusion
Look at the way it’s turning out
Happy’s just an illusion
We can just make do for now

LAZARUS

Written By: DAN MORRISSEY/JONNY COTTINGHAM

Lazarus

Embrace the way you cease to care
And waste away till you’re not there
It’s dying, it’s dying
When I stop trying

None of this ever seems fair
I gave my soul, I laid it bear
You crushed it, you crushed it,
You didn’t return it

You’ve opened up my eyes

You can walk away
I’m the one with grace
I fought for us to change
I’ve no more moves to make

Ashamed to say I left you there
I ran away to God knows where
You lost me, you lost me
Now you can’t find me

I’ll hide from you, avoid your stare
You hear me but I’m never there
I’m hiding, I’m hiding
You just keep looking

You’ve opened up my eyes

You can walk away
I’m the one with grace
I fought for us to change
I’ve no more moves to make

I can’t help it
I’m so selfish
I won’t let you go
I can’t help it
I couldn’t care less
I won’t let you go on.

You can walk away
I’m the one with grace
I fought for us to change
I’ve no more moves to make
