Some need gold and some need diamond rings,
Or a drug to take away the pain that living brings.
A promise of a better world to come
When whatever’s here is done.
I don’t need that sky of blue
All I know’s since I found you, I’m happy when I’m in your arms.
Happy, darling, come the dark,
Happy when I taste your kiss
I’m happy in a love like this.
From “Happy” by Bruce Springsteen
