Happiness, Or Something Like It

from Bon Courage (2013) by Ben Shaman



She got a brand new apartment in town with a riverview
And a discoball in the living room
There’s a bar called Chez Colette, it’s down below
Everybody loves to say hello
But the other night
She told me that she’s sad inside
It breaks my heart
But I think she’s off to a better start

I hope you find it
Or somethin like it

She’s got a job and it ain’t the best but it pays the rent
And she’s young and she’s intelligent
I tell her she can do whatever she wants and don’t despair
It’s not too late, baby girl I swear
The river’s high
But it’ll go back down in a while
The current’s strong
Keeps that river movin along

Happiness is a funny thing
Like a blues song that we sing in a major key
Here’s to hopin that we find it eventually
And for every blue note, a happy memory
