The Sweetest Surprise

For the first five years
I felt so free
You seemed to give me energy

The next five years
Were the carrot and the rod
And you always made out
Like it came straight from God

It took another five years
Before I had a clue
That your God mainly punished
Though he seemed to like you
And it all fell into place
When I finally got the nerve
To realise that power
Is the only God you serve

And now I'm happy
I'm happy
How happy I am
I'm happy
I'm happy
How happy I am

So congratulations
You knew from the start
How to pull what you wanted
Right out of my heart

But I'll tell you somethin'
At least now I'm free
And the lies that you're still livin'
Are just a bad memory for me

And they said it would linger
And it's taken me a while
To see past my anger
And remember how to smile
And there's so many ways
I can see through your scam
But the sweetest surprise
Is how happy I am

And I'm happy
I'm happy
How happy I am
I'm happy
I'm happy
How happy I am

And now I'm happy
I'm happy
How happy I am
I'm happy
I'm happy
How happy I am
