What good is that happy lie

Your good friends they don't seem to help at all
Just look up your rainy day man
It does you no good to pretend child
And it looks like you lose again, my friend

He don't chase rainbows
Grey days rolling
Empty feeling

You can't hide the truth with a happy song
Just look up your rainy day man
Now simple pleasures they all evade you
Look for signs to ease the pain
Go on and pray for rain
It looks like another fall
When you're feeling kind of cold and small
All I need to do is look up my rainy day man
Now what good is that happy lie
