RE: Happiness
(Lyrics: Malin Kjelsrud)

You asked me about happiness
I paused, revealing how unsure I was
couldn’t shake off that grey mood
you just smiled and drove away

I’m not sure what scares me most
Distress or the ability to endure
The thought have an uneasy familiarity
I’m not that optimistic anymore

I fear we are failing
Being busy doing nothing

The search for meaning makes us human, you said
Are you sure we can look that far ahead?
The idea of bliss was invented to force us to consume
Greed comes in any colour, I presume

When you ask me about happiness
Or my favorite place to be alone
I’ll say I’m euforic
When I know that no harm is done
