Just happier

A normal day of winter sun and summer rain
I had a black canvas and black colours
so I painted the black canvas black, blacker
so my thoughts exploded, some burnt down
we haven’t yet discovered the new

The more I will meet the more I will miss
My heart is not with me, not all of it
it will never fully belong to me, home has been spread apart
I miss time, if only I could gather it
clocks become unfaithful

Why can’t the blue sky be bluer?
Why can’t the blue sky be bluer?
Why can’t the blue sky be bluer?

I want to feel strangers are friends
I want to feel love
I want to be beautifully human, not terribly human
Girls from the darkness learn about brightness
while a girl from brightness learns about darkness

Why can’t the blue sky be bluer?
Why can’t the blue sky be bluer?
Why can’t the blue sky be bluer? 
Why can’t the blue sky be bluer?
Why can’t the blue sky be bluer?
Why can’t the blue sky be bluer?

I just want to be happy, happier
I just want you to be happy, happier
I believe we can be happier than we ever were before
