David Ullman - Happiest Sad Song (with ZACH)

from by Various Artists



Studio version on LIGHT THE DARK (dreamingoutloudrecords.com/album/light-the-dark)


Throwing diamonds at the sky
trying to outshine the moon
There’s no time to reflect
and there’s never enough room
(never enough room)

There’s no easy fix..
and each time it gets worse
Getting harder and harder
to write our next verse
(help me write our next verse)

You said you couldn’t find a happy song
in all I’ve written for you
You said you wanted a happy song
and there were none that you knew
I guess the happiest sad song
is gonna have to

You say sadness is surrender,
and sympathy is not love
But I believe in you
and I am not giving up
(please don’t ever give up)

Sometimes faith is not enough
and you need what you can touch
Feel like you’re always running
and never catching up
(I just wanna catch up)


Like a star in the sky
that dies before the dawn
Even the brightest moon
is overtaken by the sun
Trying to see in the dark
the light that’s breaking through
I’ve been so proud of my pain
now I’ve got nothing left to prove

I’m just trying to add a happy song
to all I’ve written for you
I’m just trying to sing a happy song
this is the best that I can do
I guess the happiest sad song
is gonna have to do
