lyrics

So happy

sitting here
watching the sun go down on you
waiting
for the stars to fall in your eyes
so blue
like the sea that´s rocking my boat

ooooh so happy to be here with you
ooooh so happy to be here with you

then the sun goes down the stars come out
to say hello
and we laugh at silly jokes
that aren´t really funny
and every time you smile
my heart it jumps a mile

ooooh so happy to be here with you
ooooh so happy to be here with you

then a boy comes in his handsome boat
and whisks you away from me
and I´m sitting all alone again
just me my boat and the sea
and I´m wondering wondering

why why why why
why do I always fall in love with straight girls
why do I always fall in love with straight girls

one day I will find a handsome dike
with short hair and hairy armpits
just like me
and we will buy a little house
with dogs and cats and keep bees
and talk about moterbikes
and drink lots of herbal tea
and I will be so very happy
to know she´ll never leave me
I will be so very happy
to know she´ll never leave me

why why why why
why do I always fall in love with straight girls
why do I always fall in love with straight girls
and I will never fall in love with another straight girl
I´ve got you

about

Sweeney Lee Dublin, Ireland

Raised in Dublin, I have lived in cities such as Galway, Sydney, Bilbao and Barcelona. Influenced by different cultures, artists and experiences, my music is a bit like me, eclectic and hard to define. Some would say folk, some indie, with maybe a touch of blues
My debut album Sugar Bombs and Shooting Stars is a celebration of adventure, friendships, love found, love lost, and infinite possibility
