(Joan Jett/Kenny Laguna)

I didn't mean to lose control and take it out on you
But there are things
I can't explain
Like havin' dreams come true
While all the world
Is sad and cold
Look at me and you

We have so much
Why don't I feel happy, baby?
I love you so much
Why can't we be happy

Every time we have a fight
It hurts me thru and thru
And all at once I'm so unsure
What I'm supposed to do
Even so I always know I'll spend my life with you

We have so much
Why don't I feel happy, baby?
I love you so much
Why can't we be happy

No one can satisfy
The needs in me but you
I try to speak my mind to you
But you don't hear me

I gotta get off by myself
An' have a drink or two
'cause lately I been so uptight from
What we're goin' through
To live without you
Would hurt no doubt
I never wanted to

We have so much
Why don't I feel happy, baby?
I love you so much
Why can't we be happy
