HAPPINESS
Viktor Krauss

With your love I was complete
Like a haven safe from harm
Till the bitter stole the sweet.
I was perfect in your arms.
A precious while
I had your smile
Till it all fell apart
With one change of heart.

The pain and regret will fade
But a fact of love will still remain:
You can't always trust happiness.
Love like a sweet parade
Till the saddest part when the music fades.
You can't always trust happiness.

If a single star I see
Ever made a wish come true,
It would bring you back to me,
But the best my heart can do
Is to love again.
I don't know when,
Still it's worth all I fear,
The heartaches and the tears.

Love like a lesson learned
When we pass the point of no return.
You can't always trust happiness.
There in love's steady glow
Hides the power to hurt us so.
You can't always trust happiness.

[Recorded by Alison Krauss on "So Long So Wrong" (1997).]

HAPPINESS
(Bill Anderson)

Bill Anderson - 1963
Ken Dodd - 1964


Happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I posses
I thank the Lord I've been blessed
With more than my share of happiness

To me this old world is a wonderful place
And I'm just about the luckiest human in the whole human race
I've got no silver and I've got no gold
Just a whole lot of happiness in my soul

Happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I posses
I thank the Lord I've been blessed
With more than my share of happiness

Happiness to me is an ocean tide
Or a sunset fading on a mountain side
Or maybe a big old heaven full of stars up above
When I'm in the arms of the one I love

Happiness is a field of grain
Lifting its face to the falling rain
I can see it in the sunshine, I breathe it in the rain
Happiness everywhere

Happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I posses
I thank the Lord I've been blessed
With more than my share of happiness

A wise old man told me one time
That happiness is nothing but a frame of mind
I hope when you go to measuring my success
That you don't count my money count my happiness

Happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I posses
I thank the Lord I've been blessed
With more than my share of happiness

Happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I posses
I thank the Lord I've been blessed
With more than my share of happiness
