Happiness

This song is by Elliott Smith and appears on the album Figure 8 (2000).

Activity's killing the actor
And a cop's standing out in the road turning traffic away
There was nothing she could do until after
When his body'd been buried below
Way back in the day

Oh my, nothing else could've been done
He made his life a lie so he might never have to know anyone
Made his life the lie you know

I told him he shouldn't upset her
And that he'd only be making it worse involving somebody else
But I knew that he'd never forget her
While her memory worked in reverse to keep her safe from herself

And oh my, nothing else could've been done
She made her life a lie so she might never have to know anyone
Made her life the lie you know

What I used to be will pass away and then you'll see
That all I want now is happiness for you and me
What I used to be will pass away and then you'll see
That all I want now is happiness for you and me
What I used to be will pass away and then you'll see
That all I want now is happiness for you and me
