It's Okay to be Happy - Lyrics

When I lose ten pounds
And then lose five more
When I'm finally size six
Better yet size four
When I grow my hair
To where it should be
When I look in the mirror
And like what I see
Maybe then maybe then maybe then I'll be happy
When I buy a big house
And I'm out of debt
When I get that job
Have a safety net
When I fall in love
With that perfect guy
I can take a deep breath
I can start my life
Maybe then maybe then maybe then I'll be happy

That's what I believed that's how I lived
Waiting waiting waiting for that or for this
It was never enough to be where I was
Just enjoying the ride being all right
Knowing whatever life throws at me
It's okay it's okay it's okay to be happy
Don't know when it changed
But somehow it did
Guess I got a little tired
Of the emptiness
So I took some trust
And I got some faith
And when they found each other
I found this place
Where it's okay to be happy

Now that's what I believe that's how I live
I ain't waiting waiting waiting for that or for this
It was never enough to be where I was
Just enjoying the ride being all right
Knowing whatever life throws at me
It's okay it's okay it's okay . . .

To be happy
Instead of waiting for the sky to fall
It's okay to be laughing
At the craziness of it all

Now that's what I believe that's how I live
I ain't waiting waiting waiting for that or for this
I'm just doing my best in this beautiful mess
Just enjoying the ride being all right
Knowing whatever life throws at me
I'll take whatever life throws at me
It's okay it's okay it's okay to be happy
It's okay it's okay it's okay to be
it's okay it's okay it's okay to be happy
It's okay it's okay it's okay to be
it's okay it's okay to be happy
