Song of the Day: Marina and the Diamonds - Happy

This is a song from one of my favorite artists.  It touches me deeply, for reasons too personal to post.  Enjoy.  And may you, my seven readers*, also find a way to be happy.

And an accoustic version, which I think is simply amazing:

Lyrics to Happy

Couldn't relax, couldn't sit back
And let the sunlight, in my lap
I sang a hymn
To bring me peace
And then it came, a melody

It felt so sweet
It felt so strong
It made me feel like
I belonged
And all the sadness inside me
Melted away
Like I was free

I found what I'd been looking for in myself
Found a life worth living for someone else
Never thought that I could be
Happy, happy

Don't go out
Much at all
I've never been
The type to call
I realize to be happy
Maybe I need
A little company

So now you know
You know it all
That I've been
Desperately alone
I haven't found the one for me
But I believe in divinity

I found what I'd been looking for in myself
Found a life worth living for someone else
Never thought that I could be
Happy, happy
I believe in possibility
I believe someone's watching over me
And finally I have found a way to be
Happy, happy

From the concrete to the coast
I was looking for a holy ghost
Like the land joining the sea
Happiness it followed me
I believe in possibility
I believe someone's watching over me
And finally I have found a way to be
Happy, happy
