Little Cup of Happiness

I wrote this song about a year ago – it sums up pretty well how I’m feeling today…

Little Cup of Happiness.

I’m in the middle of a meltdown
I don’t know what to do
It started just the other day
I was feeling rather blue
I went to see my therapist
He told me I was doing fine
But I really think I’m losing my mind.

I’m in the middle of a crisis
I might be going mad
I walk around and smile a lot
But I feel rather sad
My mind is like a ticking bomb
That might go bang at any time
And I think that I am losing my mind.

Heaven knows I’m clinging on with my fingertips
Beneath my hands the earth crumbles away
And in my head the darkness drags me down, down, down
And there’s nothing I can do.

I’m in the middle of a nightmare
The walls come tumbling down
The daylight turns to darkness
And my smile becomes a frown
And all those nasty little voices in my head
As I sit drinking wine
Tell me yes it’s true I’m losing my mind

So my friend it’s the end
And I know what I must do
Take a little cup of happiness
And have a drink or two
Then after just a little time
As things get better I will smile
Till the next time I start losing my mind

Heaven knows I’m clinging on for goodness sake
Beneath my hands the earth crumbles away
And in my head the darkness drags me down, down, down
And there’s nothing I can do.
