About Happiness

"Happiness" is the debut single by American singer and 2006 America's Got Talent contestant Alexis Jordan. It is the lead single from her self-titled debut studio album, released in the United States on September 7, 2010. The upbeat dance-pop and house rhythm behind the track was heavily sampled from electronic artist deadmau5's "Brazil (2nd Edit)" (released two years prior to "Happiness"). The lyrics were written by Autumn Rowe and Petr Brdičko, and the track was re-edited for the lyrics by Stargate. "Happiness" was generally well received by many critics, with some complimenting Jordan's vocal abilities. In the United States, the song topped the Hot Dance Club Songs chart, giving Jordan her first number one on the chart. It reached number 1 in the charts in the Netherlands (staying there for 10 weeks) and has also charted in the top five in countries such as the United Kingdom and Australia. An accompanying music video, directed by Aggressive, sees Jordan being torn apart from her love interest. It was noted for its similarities to Kylie Minogue's "Can't Get You Out of My Head". The Dave Audé Club Mix was the official song of the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup in Germany.

I gotta turn this car around
I never should have left you there
Boy, this traffic is making me sick
Boy, I can't wait to have you near

I gotta hurry, hurry, hurry
Now quick, quick, quick
Just step on the gas 'cause I don't wanna miss this
This opportunity will only come once in my life, my life

I gotta hurry, hurry, hurry
Now quick, quick, quick
Just step on the gas 'cause I don't wanna miss this
See what you're bringing me boy is priceless
I gotta be out of my mind not to try this

Through strength, I found love
In time I find myself in happiness with you
Through strength, I found love
In time I find myself in happiness with you

Mmm mmm mmm mmm

Boy, I need to say what's in my heart
I was scared but I'll do my part
I came at to tell you face to face
So what we have won't go to waste

I gotta hurry, hurry, hurry
Now quick, quick, quick
Just step on the gas 'cause I don't wanna miss this
This opportunity will only come once in my life, my life, yeah

Sorry, sorry, sorry, I'm coming down to fix this
You should know how I feel I know I got you twisted
See what you're bringing me boy is priceless
I gotta be out of my mind not to try this

Through strength, I found love
In time I find myself in happiness with you
Through strength, I found love
In time I find myself in happiness with you

The things that you can give to me
I can feel it when your holding me close
It's like your one of the world wonders
I know I'm going under
Come see that I'm ready for this
And you're so good for me
You're my true joy
You make me wanna say

Mmm mmm mmm mmm
Mmm mmm mmm mmm
Mmm mmm mmm mmm
Mmm mmm mmm mmm

Through strength, I found love
In time I find myself in happiness with you
Through strength, I found love
In time I find myself in happiness with you
