Independently Happy
< ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->
I feel that it's hard enough to say goodbye
I feel there's the water, should I sink or die?
But an...
An empty plate, fill up my sentimental morning stars
I steal the art of putting truth in a lie
I still want the girl that really caught my eye
But she lives in Oklahoma City, far away from me
Well there's an empty hope chest
I quit the dope quest
And remain independently happy

Chorus:
I'm finally happy
Happy
Independently happy

And I deal with the fact that I've forgotten the worst
And I feel that my social behavior may seem
Somewhat unrehearsed
But another page, a sullen rage
And I'll be back to my normal self

Chorus:
I'm finally happy
Happy
Independently happy

And I drive to the edge of my considerate plain
And I apologize to the people I hurt on the way
But I, I wipe the slate clean
I kick the daydream
And remain independently happy

Chorus:
I'm finally happy
Happy
I'm independently, I'm independently happy
Happy
I'm independently, I'm independently happy
Happy
This song could be about being happy independent from everything else, such as drugs.  Sometimes Justin sings "I quit the dope shit" live, and he usually begins with the intro found on the version of this song on Argue With A Tree, which you can read here.
