I Don't Wanna Be Sad - Simple Plan



The ExperienceI've tried every pill the doctor will prescribe me and I've put myself through weeks of therapy. I've tried meditation yoga and pilates. It's like happiness just wasn't meant for me... For all the people looking for happiness: we all wish it were as easy as deciding to be happy. But it's not...



Music video: Still waiting...

The Meaning of I Don't Wanna Be Sad: Simple Plan puts music to our greatest fear: unhappiness. And the happy go lucky, nothing-worked-but-I'll-just-be-happy-anyway feel of the song underlines the despair you feel when happiness is out of reach. If only you could simply decide to be happy...

Ask yourself: Why is happiness so hard to find?

LYRICS:

No, I don't wanna be sad
I don't wanna be sad, sad, sad no more

It’s been 28 days since I’ve seen the sunshine
Cause I just can't seem to lift this cloud away
I swear all the tears I’ve cried could fill an ocean
I've been swimming in a sea of misery
I can't find the strength to leave this bed
I’m locked up in my cuckoo head
I feel so low and I can't let go
I've got all the symptoms all the signs
I tell my friends I'll be just fine
But truth be told it’s getting old

No, I don't wanna be sad
I don't wanna be sad, sad, sad no more (No, no, no)
And I know, some days will be bad
But I don't wanna be sad sad sad no more

I've tried every pill the doctor will prescribe me
And I've put myself through weeks of therapy
I've tried meditation yoga and pilates
It's like happiness just wasn't meant for me
But I’m through I'm done I've had enough
I'll ditch this funk I tell you what
Just watch me now
Cause I won’t back down
I've got a bad ass personality
So I just need to set it free
It starts today I’m on my way

No, I don't wanna be sad
I don't wanna be sad, sad, sad no more (No, no, no)
And I know, some days will be bad
But I don't wanna be sad, sad, sad no more

I don't wanna be sad
I don't wanna be sad
I don't wanna be sad
Sad, sad, sad, sad

No, I don't wanna be sad
I don't wanna be sad, sad, sad no more
And I know some days will be bad
But I don't wanna be sad, sad, sad no more

No, I don't wanna be sad
I don't wanna be sad, sad, sad no more (No, no, no)
And I know, some days will be bad
But I don't wanna be sad, sad, sad no more

No no no
I don't wanna be
no no no
I don't wanna be
sad sad sad no more


Woah

No no no
I don't wanna be
no no no
I don't wanna be
sad sad sad no more
