about

"...to happiness" I wrote not long after marrying young, as I wished to joyfully point out to all the horrified public that whether consciously or no, we're probably all married to something, maybe even harmful things (addictions? or even the illusion of 'total freedom' that can occasionally lead to the harm of others?) so why not look through the landscape of one's life and claim that thing that makes you truly happy and consciously marry yourself to it?! That's what I say, anyway.
This song also contains a pretty solid portion of a one of my most favourite Baha'i prayers within one of the verses.

lyrics

When early I wake in the morn
And I’m lying in bed, take a moment to – pause –
Before I rise
Cause the man next to me in the bed
Sleepy face closed and legs wrapped round mine
He’s a slow riser and he like’s to cuddle.
So I squeeze him until I see that unconscious smile
And then I can get to my feet and greet the day…

I’m married …to happiness

Oh God! Refresh and gladden my spirit
Purify my heart, illumine my mind
I will no longer be full of anxiety
No, I will be a happy and joyful being…

I'm married ...to happiness

Do you know what makes you happy? Would you weave yourself to it?
Are you sure that that is freedom? Or are you prisoner to it?
Choose in strength your happiness then lock your self to it
Yes, choose in strength your happiness then lock lock lock yourself to it…

I'm married ...to happiness
