Be Happy When There's No Reason to be OtherwiseAfter the bad has left my life
the good has come back quite contrite
But every good has an evil side
and it shows itself from time to time
though usually it likes to hide
until someone tells another lie
'cause then it will come out to play,
to tear apart a perfect day,
replace all of our pleasures with pain..
Fight as you will, it won't leave
your struggle only gives it glee
and when you close your eyes to sleep
it shows itself within your dreams
Really, there is no escape,
there's never been another way.
To try to fight would be in vain
so endure it 'til it goes away
And after it has disappeared,
enjoy the time it isn't here.
This Battle I've WonI used to be weak, selfish and wrong
I knew this, but I couldn't stop
because I thought--for sure--I'm right
but that just lead to countless fights.
So I told myself I'd walk away
and live my life another day
without you being in my way
'cause you've already had a say
Though it was spoken silently,
and probably was not for me
but your words, I heard them anyway
and so I decided to go away
For so long this endless war went on
I knew I could stay with you not
But our past, it just fought and fought,
unwilling to give up the times we've lost
Then, this battle, I've finally won
And at last, in this dark, shines down, the sun
My eyes are open, I can see
That without you, I am finally free.
