My Sad Happiness

Would you understand
If I said that I was glad
To be so depressed today

Would you want to be with me
If I said so happily
That rain is my only friend

And would you want to know me
If I looked up at the drear day
And said what a lovely day it is

How could you want that
The depression sinks in
All I am is sad, with a grin

Despite what you say
You shouldn't want me that way
And I should just fade away
