Ben Platt – happy to be sad Lyrics

Waking up beside you brings a kind of refuge
It’s the armour that I need to face the day
For a second I forgot that you were leaving soon
Then the armour falls away

This time there’s no broken hearts
And no one ran ’cause it got hard
This missing you is temporary pain

I’m happy to be sad
I’m sad that you are gone
If I was feeling nothing
I would feel like something’s wrong
I’m grateful to be crying
I’m crying over you
I’m lucky that we love so good
It has to hurt this bad
I’m happy to be sad

Only me, myself, and all my thoughts I thought that I would
Start to crumble in the lonely (start to crumble in lone)
But I’ll get to know the momentary misery
Just to know somebody knows me, yeah

This time there’s no hopeless nights
No losing sleep, no pointless fights
Just missing you till you come back and hold me

I’m happy to be sad (sad)
I’m sad that you are gone (gone)
If I was feeling nothing
I would feel like something’s wrong
I’m grateful to be crying (crying)
I’m crying over you (you)
I’m lucky that we love so good
It has to hurt this bad
I’m happy to be sad (sad)

(Gone)
(I)
I’m happy to be sad (sad)
(Gone)
(I)

I’m happy to be sad
I’m sad that you are gone
If I was feeling nothing
I would feel like something’s wrong
I’m grateful to be crying (crying)
I’m crying over you (you)
I’m lucky that we love so good
It has to hurt this bad
I’m happy to be sad (sad)

(Sad)
(Gone)

(Sad)
(Gone)
(I)
(Sad)
(Gone)
(I)
(Sad)
(Gone)
(I)
(Sad)
(Gone)
