Happy Then

words/music: Mark Melloan

Verse 1:

Fighting words, oh,
throw them in the deep,
Let them sink like stones
down the deepest sea,
Let forgiveness flow, oh,
in and out of me,
in and out of you
like the air we breathe

Pre-Chorus 1:

Look into your heart,
All you've got to find is love,
Look into my eyes,
All I want to see is you
We're all in an in-between world now,
in a world where the mysteries
swirl around us and
the answers are few, yeah,
and I don't know about you, but

Chorus 1:

I don't want to leave,
and you don't have to stay,
Let's live in between
right now and today, yeah,
We've been in love before,
Let's fall in love some more,
Let's do it all again,
There's gonna come a day,
It's not so far away,
and we don't wanna say,
"Why weren't we happy then,
happy then"

Verse 2:

Love's a butterfly, high,
flying on two wings,
landing on the limbs
of only the bending trees
Hurry now, Love,
before she flies away,
Pin it down and make love stay

Pre-Chorus 2:

Look into your heart,
All you've got to find is love,
Look into my eyes,
All I want to see is you
We're all in an in-between world now,
in a world where the mysteries
swirl around us and
the answers are few, yeah,
and I don't know about you, but

Chorus 2:

I don't want to leave,
and you don't have to stay,
Let's live in between
right now and today, yeah,
We've been in love before,
Let's fall in love some more,
Let's do it all again,
There's gonna come a day,
It's not so far away,
and we don't wanna say,
"Why weren't we happy then,
happy then"

Bridge:

Let's hold on to love
just like we should,
Why would we want to ever let it go
if love is good

Pre-Chorus 3:

Look into your heart,
all you've got to find is love,
and we'll be happy then

Ending:

Soon we'll be old and gray,
and we don't want to say,
"Why weren't we happy then?"
