HAPPINESS/ THE GONDALA MAN
Elliott Smith


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 that 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 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 to be will pass away and then you'll see,
that all I want now is happiness for you and me.
All I want now is happiness for you and me
