[Verse 1]
How can I love somebody else
If I can't love myself enough to know
When it's time,
Time to let go
Sing

[Chorus]
All I really want
Is to be happy
And to find a love that's mine
It would be so sweet
[Repeat]

[Verse 2]
I ask for the sign
From the sweet Lord above
I know the answer is in front of me
But when you think you're in love
You only see what you wanna see
And all I see is me for you
And you for me

Oh I cannot hide the way I feel inside
(No I don't know why)
I don't know why but every day I wanna cry
(Every day I wanna cry)
If I give you one more try
To there rules, will you abide
And if I mean anything to you
Would it make everything all right

[Chorus]

I just wanna be so, so, happy
But the answer lies in me
I do believe
That we can be happy
I said I wanna be happy, yeah

[Verse 3]
Life is too short
To be tryin to play some games
Now take some time and think about
If it's really worth losing me
Why must it be this way
Why do you have to play with my mind
All the time
Help me sing it

All I really want is for me to be happy
Ohhh, just help me sing it
All I really want is for me to be happy
Yeahhhhhhh
All I really want is for me to be happy
Oh, you know I wanna be happy, yeah, yeah
[repeat through chorus]

I don't wanna have to worry about nothin no more
Said I wanna be, said I wanna be, said I wanna be
[Chorus]
