Earlimart – Happy Alone lyrics

Call in the air strike, tell them to make the drop
Initiate a cycle no one but you can stop
Would it be fair to say that you're in love with love?

And is that enough?
I bet you feel really potent stuff
The shadows of doubt on how things turn out are typically gray
But even the stopped clock on the wall is right two times a day

And it's still enough
Just how much distance means we're on our own?
And can we be happy, happy alone?

The universe opens up the door
And we go right in, it's there, it's new, it's cool
It's something we ain't seen before

And five minutes in, an egg timer rings
To clip off our carefree flapping wings
Show us the things we can't afford then throw us overboard

But it's still enough
Just how much distance means we're on our own?
Until I see you off at home, down the sidewalk in my head
I might be sinking like a stone, but perfectly happy, just openly happy

In my heart I've always known, I gotta be happy alone
So burn my mail, destroy the phone, yeah, I'd rather be happy alone
The moving sky, the rocks below all so perfectly happy alone
Our little hearts have turned to stone, it better be happy all alone
