*** I'd Rather Die Happy ***

I sat myself down Tuesday, wrote myself a song
Just things I want to say, about what is wrong
But all of my complainin', well it comes to no avail
The things I really need to say I've yet to learn myself

(Chorus):
I won't cry, no. And I won't wail, no
I tell myself that you can never fail
Until it's over
And when it's over, it's over

So I wrote myself a letter, and I sent it off to you
To make myself feel better, I tried to tell the truth
I wrote a song for Jesus Christ, and one for Noah's Ark
I sang a song for mornin' light and I still sat in the dark

(Chorus):
I won't cry, no. And I won't wail, no
I tell myself that you can never fail
Until it's over
And when it's over, it's over

So I accept I can do nothing, do nothing at all
I see myself, a big, long road and I build myself a wall
I dig myself a tunnel, so I could get on under
And join the rest of the human race, just ask 'why?' and wonder

(Chorus)
