Happiness ...

The Year is ending and I was just contemplating, was 2008 a happy year for me !? How can one say because does any one of us really know the meaning of happiness ?? .. Thus I wrote a song, it was meant to be a bit Grunge so it is not too poetic... What is happiness for you ... ?


Happiness for some is their pay check, for some it's champagne on the deck.
Happiness for some is a good movie, for others when they get groovy.
Happiness for most is when they win a race,
But for me it's the Angel's face.

I don't know if it's right or wrong,
but it gives me shivers and tongs.
They say that love is a tragedy;
I rather die than not get the remedy.

Pleasure for some is Ecstasy, for some it is wild fantasy.
Pleasure for some is a ride on the train, for others its money not brains.
Pleasure for most is their naked device
But for me it's the Angel's voice.

I don't know if it's right or wrong,
but it gives me shivers and tongs.
They say that love is a tragedy;
I rather die than not get the remedy

For me happiness is related to events that change your life and act as bench marks in the memory lane.. and for that matter, 2008 was one of the most eventful years of our life.... Leaving 4 years of college life, and stepping into the corporate world surely means a lot of transformation. And its worth remembering...

So, Happiness for you is Nostalgia ... I have heard quite a few people say that... :)

As Kahlil Gibran wrote in The Prophet:
"your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding".
For me happiness/joy lies in this understanding as when i understand i feel happy, though sometimes it does involve going through a lot of pain. afterall everyone is craving for this understanding and those who are not but still seem to be happy are in bliss. and bliss is as unreal as the fog, which stays but for a while.

P.S : nice composition, especially liked the description of what happiness means to various people.
