Happiness to borrow




On the brink.



But, hey! I'm alive.



Though on the floor, my love did pour.



Thought it would set me free.



Bottles I went through...



Beer, vodka, and some tear, not just one.


Regrets, I've had a few, when my life went askew.

Sadness struck, and down on my luck...


Beer went down the hatch, vodka down the throat.

Patch the soul was my hope...


Fell into a slope, for a day.

My thoughts lead astray.

Felt happy, though for a day.

Happiness and dismay filled the day.

Beer on the edge, on a mental ledge, stuck within a cage.

It mellows with age.

Though down on my luck, drowned in sorrow, my happiness only to borrow...

Borrowed happiness from my life, because a sadness that strife..


Vodka went down, I chose on my own, vodka in a heartbeat, vodka got me beat, couldn't take the heat.

For a six months of sorrow, my happniess was to borrow...


Stay true, through and through, when you think you'll fall through, step down.

Step down, on the ledge you stand, count to ten, and step back,

for your heart will tell you lack, lack the humanity to ruin other's lives.

you got to five, four seconds left, and you be the guest.

three, two, be you, sad or happy, though life can be a bit crappy.

It's not so bad.

Give yourself a chance, for happiness to borrow, badly thought days, nobody likes...


Down from the ledge, trapped in your cage no longer, you feel stronger, for your happiness is no longer borrowed.

You feel sad, but realise it's not so bad.

Be a good lad, live life, and be happy, but also, sad.


Live the best life you can.


For in this life.

Is Happiness to borrow.
