読みかけの本をどこかに忘れたの
今やっと読めるのに
やっと好きになったのに
まただ いっつもこうだ
どうして?
どうしてなの?
なんだろ いいよ 別に

ハッピーは心の中にあるけど
いま ハッピーは
少し遠くにあるような
ただ ハッピーは
誰かが連れてくるでしょう
けど ハッピーは
まだ顔も見せないでいる

放物線落下物みたい
わたしは落ちていますか?
側からみてどうか
気にしてどこに行こうか
だったら いいのよ 別に
なんでしょう?
そうなの また
いつも いつも ただ

ハッピーは 自分の心が決めるから
ハッピーは 気まぐれに訪れてくる
でも
ハッピーは 隣のあなたの笑顔でも
ハッピーは
作れるものと知っている
どこに流されて わたしの心は
目指す駅のホーム 止まる 下りる
トゥトゥル  トゥトゥル 
わたしに似たような
メロディ 響く

ハッピーは
高望みはしていないのに
ハッピーは
気まぐれに去っていくから
ほら
ハッピーは
この電車に揺られているかも
ハッピーは
あなたの横に座っているかも
ハッピーは
自分の心が決めるから
ハッピーは
作れるものと知っているけど
ハッピーは
今日は遠くにいるみたいだから
ハッピーは
誰かの横にいるのかも
