Lyrics

Happy

Written By: William Rottman

HAPPY

I always wondered what the world would be without me
Would a lot of people feel lonely
Cause I would if I could but I can't seem to feel alright

Try to be happy starting from the very inside
When you're on your own try to feel it
Let it out party with your very best friends
Just be happy and you'll feel it

Wondering if I could go back and change things
What am I thinking you can't change the past move on
How can you cry when you're still not done with life
Still not done with life

Try to be happy starting from the very inside
When you're on your own try to feel it
Let it out party with your very best friends
Just be happy and you'll feel it

Try to be happy starting from the very inside
When you're on your own try to feel it
Let it out party with your very best friends
Just be happy and you'll feel it

Now I don't wanna give you the wrong idea
You always gotta try ,gotta try to be happy
But listen to me when I say it starts from inside
Starts from inside

Try to be happy starting from the very inside
When you're on your own try to feel it
Let it out party with your very best friends
Just be happy and you'll feel it and you'll feel it

After So Long

Written By: William Rottman

After So Long

I see what you're thinking
I know who you are
I never should've let you go

It's not news to me
That we've come this far
I hope I'm gonna be a star

Where you going
Where you going without me
Why you leavin' after so long, after so long

A rosebud in the spring
You were my sunshine in the winter
I wish you didn't have to go

Another hair I've found
Of yours in the bedroom
I still feel you standing here

Where you going
Where you going without me
Why you leavin' after so long

Where you going
Where you going without me
Why you leavin' after so long

Where ya gonna be tomorrow
Just a memory not far
I guess we gave it a good try
What a sad wave goodbye, goodbye

Where you going
Where you going without me
Why you leavin'after so long,
After so long

Days Away

Written By: William Rottman

Days Away

Never yours in the first place
Never mine from the start
A pocket full of candy promises
Like we did last summer
Like we did

(If) You got time to breath
Then you got time for music
A humbling experience from a torturous well

I don't wanna wish my days away
I just wanna live a life that feels so good
I don't wanna wish my days away
I just wanna live a life that feels so good

Thank you New York City
Without you'd I'd be lost
Its time to life the change I've found
Like we did last summer
Like we did

I don't wanna wish my days away
I just wanna live a life that feels so good
I don't wanna wish my days away
I just wanna live a life that feels so good

I don't wanna wish my days away
I just wanna live a life that feels so good
I don't wanna wish my days away
I just wanna live a life that feels so good

Unkind Remedies

Written By: William Rottman

UNKIND REMEDIES

It's Friday night and I'm sitting here all alone
Wondering what you're doing
I close my eyes and remember what you meant to me
It's all gone so I shouldn't be crying

This pain inside just won't stop eating me
You're always on my mind

I feel so lonely without you holding me
Old habits die hard
How can someone be so in love with someone else
And then lose their heart

So many lies and Unkind Remedies
Playing your games all the time
So many lies and unkind remedies
Something you claimed you couldn't see

I hear the ring of the phone that's beside my bed
Hoping it'll be you
I haven't heard your voice in so very long
But I'm hoping to soon

This pain inside just won't stop eating me
You're always on my mind

Can't you see it's not about the games we play
It's just we couldn't get along
There's one more thing that I really really wanna say
Before I finish this song

This pain inside just won't stop eating me
You're always on my mind


So many lies and unkind remedies Playing your games all the time
So many lies and unkind remedies Something you claimed you couldn't see
So many lies and unkind remedies You were always so sure it was me
So many lies and unkind remedies Let us set each other free
