Lyrics for Lee Ann Womack - "Happiness"
Down at the lost highway cafe
I met a man there with a map in his hand
He said "I'm a little bit confused
And I'm not sure where I am"
He said, "I'm trying to find this place
Been trying to get there for a long, long time"
Then he smiled and looked away
And asked me if I'd heard of happiness
I told him that it just might take a while
Maybe some years, and a lotta miles
Go down the road till you hit party ville
Don't stop unless you're lookin' for cheap thrills
Go past love to you hear wedding bells
Stop and honeymoon and rest a spell
You might get lost on the way is my guess
It ain't easy finding happiness
He said, "I think I understand
I better go before the sun goes down
'Cause it's hard to see at night
And I just don't trust my eyes anymore"
I said "Good luck" and watched him leave
He hit the fast lane, then he disappeared
Just another weary traveler like so many
Trying to find his way back home
There's so many stops along the way
You keep on hoping that there'll come a day
I should have told him but I think he knows
So many places where he shouldn't go
So many souls that get turned around
Lookin' and wonderin' why it can't be found
It's a straight shot past loneliness
Why can't we seem to find happiness?
It's easy to get turned around I guess
On the road to happiness
