Can I Buy You Some Happiness?

I want to buy some happiness
Wrap it in paper and tape
Put it at your doorstep
And then ring your door bell.

And then I want to run away
With clumsy footsteps on the stairs
Some muddy boot marks here and there
So you can follow along and yell.

But I’ll be gone before you see
The smirk across my sunburnt face
The cape flying behind my dress
The explosion inside my heart.

But it won’t matter anymore
‘Cause you’ll be holding happiness
Wrapped inside my shiny mess
And never again be torn apart.
