Looking On The Upside, But Will It Last?

happiness is blooming
in my heart it's looming
at long last a smile

at first was so broken
so hopelessly wide open
but i have surpassed that mile

today is looking brighter
i feel quite lighter
i think i am at peace

though i know this is only a show
for sadness is trying to start and grow
melancholy always has a piece

smiles only fade
in this happy sad charade
confusion is what fills my brain

i am sick
of feeling ick
i wish to shower in rain

maybe the rain
can wash my brain
and with it take away all of my pain

i know it won't last
for sadness will blast
and again i will feel sad

i don't get this
happy sad charade then bliss
it makes me confused and mad

but happiness is blooming
in my heart it is looming
at long last a smile

at first was so broken
so hopelessly wide open
so hopefully i have surpassed that mile

so hopefully
so hopefully
i can end this pain

so hopefully
so hopefully
i can stop the shower of rain

so sick
so sick
of all the tears i shed

so hopefully
so hopefully
i can finally end this dread

finally
oh so finally
maybe i can live

if only
if only
my melancholy would give.
