Leona Lewis is one of the phenomenonally greatest voices of our generation, and there are only a few other rising stars who can sing like her – Carrie Underwood and Jordin Sparks.  They are the ones from whom we can expect great music. “Happy” is the leading single of Leona’s second album “Echo”, and had the power to get to my heart even with its first few words.

Happy - Leona Lewis

Happy - Leona Lewis

Someone once told me
That you have to choose
What you will not lose
You cant have everything
Don’t you take chances
You might feel the pain
Don’t you love in vain
‘Coz love wont set you free
I could stand by the side
And watch this life pass me by
So unhappy but safe as could be

So what if it hurts me
So what if I break down
So what if this world just throws me off the edge
My feet run out of ground
I gotta find my place
I wanna hear my sound

Don’t care about other pain infront of me
‘Coz I’m just tryna be happy
Just wanna be happy

Holding on tightly
Just can’t let it go
Just tryna play my roll
Slowly diasappear … Ooh
Well, all these tears
They feel like they’re the same
Just different faces, different names
Get me outta here
Well, I can stand by the side … Ooh, no
And watch this life pass me by … Pass me by

So what if it hurts me
So what if I break down
So what if this world just throws me off the edge
My feet run out of ground
I gotta find my place
I wanna hear my sound
Don’t care about all the pain infront of me
‘Coz I’m just tryna be happy
Just wanna be … Happy

Oh, happy … Oh, ooh

So any turns that I cant see
I’ll count a stranger on this road
But don’t say victim
Don’t say anythng

So what if it hurts me
So what if I break down
So what if this world just throws me off the edge
My feet run out of ground
I gotta find my place
I wanna hear my sound
Don’t care about all the pain in front of me
I just wanna be … happy
Oh, yeah … happy
Oh, ho … happy
I just wanna be … happy
Ah … happy
