Verse 1

Pretend we're on an island, just me and you,

And we're lying on the grasses covered in dew,

And staring at the sky that's painted in blue,

When you whisper in my ear, you say "I love you".

Chorus

Yeah, when times are rough,

When the time we spend together is not enough,

When everything feels like it's falling apart,

When I have to do things that rip my heart.

That's when I fly away to my happy place,

It's safe in my heart, lighted up by your smiling face.

Verse 2

Today I got into a fight with my best friend.

Came home, and all my chores just wouldn't end.

I sat down to write, but lost inspiration again.

I tried to sleep through it, but it refused to happen.

Chorus

So, when times are rough,

When the time we spend together is not enough,

When everything feels like it's falling apart,

When I have to do things that rip my heart.

That's when I fly away to my happy place,

It's safe in my heart, lighted up by your smiling face.

Bridge

This world we live in is moving way too fast.

I go to my happy place to make our moments last.

I close my eyes, and time stands still.

I feel at peace, even with my life winding uphill…

Chorus

Yeah, when times are rough,

When the time we spend together is not enough,

When everything feels like it's falling apart,

When I have to do things that rip my heart.

That's when I fly away to my happy place,

It's safe in my heart, lighted up by your smiling face.
