Hard To Be Happy

Surprise, I refuse to be sad
I'm not going to dwell on the heartache I've had
Fly too close to your plane
I go out at night but it's never the same
You were bad for me and I know it now
You were bad for me, I'll get by some way, some how

Chorus
Still, it's hard to be happy
It's hard to be happy, hard to be gay
Hard to be happy
Since you've gone away

No, no, no, there are no tears in these eyes
I'm in control, I can hold my head high
At last, I can finally smile
The breakdown occurs only once in a while
You were bad for me and I know it now
You were bad for me, I'll get by some way, some how

Chorus

Still, it's hard to be happy
It's hard to be happy, hard not to cry
Hard to be happy
Since you've said goodbye

Well, I sat on the floor while you picked out your clothes
I sat on the bed while you painted your toes
I waited for you while you studied your face
Made very sure every hair was in place

You acted like a queen, you glided down the stairs
Making believe I was no even there
But I gave you my heart, all the love that I had
I gave you my heart and it makes me so mad

Chorus

Still, it's hard to be happy
It's hard to be happy, hard not to cry
Hard to be happy
But I'm gonna try

It's hard to be happy
It's hard to be happy
It's hard to be happy
So hard
