Happy All the Time

This is one of the first songs I wrote, although the original one was kind of Punky and very different to this version. I recorded this in 1993, and along with another song called "Little By Little" this is my most Dire Straits orientated production, so if you don't "Happy" with that I hope you enjoy it.

You cannot judge the man by the funeral
You cannot judge a man at all
You cannot hold a precious thing forever
One day you've got to let it fall

I cannot keep you happy all the time
I cannot say "I'm yours and you're mine"
I cannot say, "I'll love you forever"
But you know I'll keep you in my mind.

We cannot understand all our feelings
I cannot say I know how you feel
We cannot empathize in every way
But understanding helps the scars to heal.

Now they can not do what isn't right for them
They can only help when it suits their needs
They cannot do what they do not want
If they want they'll laugh while you bleed

She cannot say what's right for her is right for him
They cannot search for meaning without pain
She suffers his light heart life for too long
Now he laughs at her as she takes him back again
.
You and I cannot deny the judging that we do
When we stand so proud in these justice halls
I used to think these walls could hear
But now I know it's just these eyes have walls.




July 1990
