The – True Happiness This Way Lies lyrics

have you ever wanted something so badly That
it possessed your body & your soul Through
the night & through the day Until
you finally get it And!
then you realise that it wasn't what you wanted after all And.
then those selfsame sickly little thoughts Now
go & attach themselves to something or....
....somebody new....And!
the whole goddamn thing starts all over again Well.
I've, been crushing the symptoms but I can't locate the Cause
God really be so cruel To?
give us feelings that could never be fulfilled Baby. I've!
got my sights set on you I've. got my sight set on you And
someday someday, someday, you'll, come my way But.
when you put your arms around me I'll
be looking over your shoulder for something new 'cause
I ain't ever found peace upon the breast of a girl I
ain't ever found peace with the religion of the world I
ain't ever found peace at the bottom of a glass Sometimes
it seems the more I ask for the less I receive Sometimes
it seems the more I ask for the less I receive The
only true freedom is freedom from the heart's desires &
the only true happiness this....way lies
