decide to be happy

Lyricist:     Composer:

Music, it saved me
But it drives me crazy
'Cause it forces my eyes, to take a look and see
Got to decide to be happy
'Cause it don't always come naturally
Been feelin' like a stranger in my body
I haven't been myself in a while, I'm sorry (I'm sorry)
Got to decide to be happy (Happy)
'Cause it don't always come naturally

'Cause flowers, don't grow without the rain
And goodness, don't grow without the pain
Flowers, don't grow without the rain
And goodness, don't grow without the pain

I've been, down on my knees
Prayin', things I don't believe
Hopin' that it'll save me
So I decide to be happy
I've been, down on my knees
Prayin', things I don't believe
Hopin' that it'll save me
So I decide to happy
(Happy, happy, happy, happy...)
So I decide to be happy

My mind it can be a scary place at times
So I hide under my bed and close all the blinds
And I cry (And I cry)
And I cry (And I cry)
Waste the day away, so I turn on the lights
And I search for a sign or a rhyme or a reason
Why I'm unsteady as the seasons?

'Cause flowers, don't grow without the rain
And goodness, don't grow without the pain
Flowers, don't grow without the rain
And goodness, don't grow without the pain

I've been, down on my knees
Prayin', things I don't believe
Hopin' that it'll save me
So I decide to be happy
I've been, down on my knees
Prayin', things I don't believe
Hopin' that it'll save me
So I decide to happy
So I decide to be happy

If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands
If you're sad and you know it, well now's your chance to dance
If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands
If you're sad and you know it, well now's your chance to dance
Well now's your chance to dance, now's your chance to dance (now's your chance to dance, now's your chance to dance)

I've been, down on my knees
Prayin', things I don't believe
Hopin' that it'll save me
So I decide to happy
I've been, down on my knees
Prayin', things I don't believe
Hopin' that it'll save me
So I decide to be happy
