For one moment I was happy
I was innocent and carefree
Then I glanced over my shoulder
And saw you were still trailing me

A stain on perfect satin
A flaw in a perfect song
When everything else is right
You're the one thing that's still wrong

I cannot just be happy
I cannot just be sad
You taint every emotion
And thought I've ever had

You can't let well enough alone
Or let sleeping dogs just lie
Somehow you are the reason
For every teardrop that I cry

I'm never completely happy
With just one person or event
Because you creep in through the shadows
And refuse to let me be content

But for one small moment, I was happy
For once, I was innocent and carefree
The I saw you were still inside
Slowly killing me
