lyrics

It's so hard to be alive, seeing people every night
Conversations all the time, all our lives waiting in line
Yesterday I woke up old, in mind and in my soul
In my back and in my knees, no more after hours please
Is this love of ours a lie?
When did we give up and die like everyone before us did?
We've been down since we were kids
Never happy thanks to Morrissey and Ian Curtis
"New Dawn Fades" still makes me nervous

Let's get happy, let's get happy now
Let's get happy, I'm not happy now
I never felt a thing in the first place
I never felt a thing in the first place
I never felt a thing in the first place
Let's get happy, I'm not happy now

Every morning is a chore, temples pounding to my core
Stomach rotten and abused, feeling cloudy and confused
Why the hell does my body crave the things that leave it
Beat and broken, forehead soaking
I'm hacking darts until I'm choking, please
Is this the time of our lives?
We were never scared to die even when we almost did
We've been down since were kids
Always brooding thanks to Johnny Marr and Bernard Sumner
"Shadowplay" still pulls me under

Let's get happy, let's get happy now
Let's get happy, I'm not happy now
I never felt a thing in the first place
I never felt a thing in the first place
I never felt a thing in the first place
Let's get happy, I'm not happy now
