the boy's gone



What will happen to a face in the crowd when it finally gets too crowded
What will happen to the origins of sound after all the sounds have sounded
Well, I hope I never have to see that day but by god I know it's headed our way
So I better be happy now that the boy's going home. The boy's gone home.

What becomes of a day for those who rage against it
Who will sum up the phrase for all left standing around in it

Well, I suppose we'll all make our judgement calls
We will march, we will fall
So we better be happy now that we'll all go home.

Be so happy with the way you are
Just be happy that you made it this far
Go on be happy now. Please be happy now

Because you see that this, this is something else
this is something else, it's alright.

Well, I try to live my life, I try to live it well
But when it's over, is it heaven or is it hell
I better be happy now cause no one can tell me, cause nobody knows
I'm gonna be happy with the way that I am
I'm gonna be happy with all that I stand for
I'm gonna be happy now because the boy's going home.

The boy's gone home.
A friend once told me that there is something spiritual about singing and strumming to the guitar. I think he's right.

I love everything about this song because it reminds me that happiness is a conscious decision and it is so important that we remain our better selves regardless of our life situations. At the end of the day, I am all that I need.

I know the whole world probably knows this already but I love Jason Mraz. My heart may be fickle about alot of things, but this is a constant that will never change.
