It's Not My Fault I'm Happy
Passion Pit Lyrics


Sorry I couldn't be there, I was tied to a rocking chair
I was beat down to a pulp rocking back and forth somewhere
If you knew, if you saw, you'd have said it was the final straw
That my life was bound and tethered on a porch by the shore

But there is no no no no
Easy way to tell them so, the things you know
And run run run run
Run they say, they think they know exactly so

It's not right, it's not right
How am I the only one who sees us fight?
What are we? Who are they?
Who says those bastards don't deserve to pay?
Well it's enough, it's just enough 'cause we don't stand a chance
So long you stay around, you're just another song and dance
It's not fair, it's not fair, it's not fair, it's not fair
Still I'm the only one who seems to care

It's funny that being funny makes you feel like up and running
When your past lingers like rain clouds, casting shadows below
I could live with so many burns, I take all your hope and yearning
But there's no one I want to take me for that petty little rose

I used to glow glow glow glow
Once I had a love to show, a love they know
They're slow slow slow slow
So slow that they never know where I go

It's not right, it's not right
How am I the only one who sees us fight?
What are we? Who are they?
Who says those bastards don't deserve to pay?
Well it's enough, it's just enough 'cause we don't stand a chance
So long you stay around, you're just another song and dance
It's not fair, it's not fair, it's not fair, it's not fair
Still I'm the only one who seems to care

I know that it's only something
I'm just working with what I've been given
It's not my fault, I'm happy
Don't call me crazy, I'm happy

It's not right, it's not right
How am I the only one who sees us fight?
What are we? Who are they?
Who says those bastards don't deserve to pay?
Well it's enough, it's just enough 'cause we don't stand a chance
So long you stay around, you're just another song and dance
It's not fair, it's not fair, it's not fair, it's not fair
Still I'm the only one who seems to care

[Verse 1]
Sorry I couldn’t be there
I was tied to a rocking chair
I was beat down to a pulp
Rocking back and forth somewhere
If you knew, if you saw
You'd have said it was the final straw
There my life was bound and tethered
On a porch by the shore
But there is no, no, no, no, no
Easy way to tell one so
The things you know
And run, run, run, run, run
When they say they think they know
Exactly so

[Chorus]
It’s not right, it’s not right
How am I the only one who sees us fight?
What are we?
Who are they?
Who says those bastards don’t deserve to pay?
Well it's the numbers, it's the numbers
We don’t stand a chance
So long as they're around you're just another song and dance
It’s not fair (it’s not fair), It’s not fair (it’s not fair)
Still I’m the only one who seems to care

[Verse 2]
It’s funny being funny
Makes you feel like up and running
When your past lingers like rain clouds
Casting shadows below
I could live with so many burdens
I'll take all your hope and yearning
But there's no way I won't take me
For their petty little woes
I used to glow, glow, glow, glow, glow
Once I had a love to show
A love they know
But they’re slow, slow, slow, slow, slow
So slow that they never know
Where I go

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
I know that it’s always something
I’m just working with what I’ve been given
It’s not my fault, I’m happy
Don’t call me crazy, I’m happy

[Chorus]

Listening 2020 anyone?

I wish I could describe how much this song means to me. Hope everyone is safe and healthy in this crisis. I doubt Micheal or anyone from Passion Pit will see this; however, I must thank them.

It always makes me sad... But in a good way. Nostalgia as a song.

TheStutteringSpartan

This song doesn't have nearly enough recognition

D2 Entertainment

I want to re-tweet that.

So much talent.

Mikki Mikki

the first 10 seconds always nearly brings me to tears....

I'm on a long, LONG road trip on my way to take my little son back to his Dad's house for his 6 month turn, unfortunately 16 hours away from where I live. This song came on while I'm stuck in traffic in the mountains, somehow, in the middle of the night. It's so beautiful and sad and I made the mistake of looking at him sleeping in his carseat and am now openly weeping. Hysterically. This song could make anything heartbreaking, but is somehow piercing my soul during an already sad situation. Passion Pit is unlike anything else I've ever heard.

Wesley Dahlin

You know I have more passion for music than anything, yet the only thing that makes me cry is a tv show or movie. Particularly Screech in Saved By the Bell

TheCoolerChannel

Mikki Davis every gosh darn time! I hate and love that about this song

It's almost like I want Passion Pit to be more appreciated. But I don't want them to be super popular, I want to keep it as a smaller community. Things are better that way, this band is like a hidden gem, and I love it. I also wish I could meet someone who loves Passion Pit as much as I do. Gosh, thank you god, or whoever's up there for Michael and Passion Pit.
