Thanks to Brando for bringing this song into my life. It seems applicable…well, most of it. Well, mainly just the chorus, if you are taking the lyrics literally…

I’m already fine, but you can always have more happiness, right? For me, these lyrics aren’t indicating that I have no happiness and I need that one, astronomical “thing” to bring me happiness. It’s that life is about bringing together your various bits of happiness…and I am always on the pursuit of the next bit.

Kid Cudi – Pursuit of Happiness

“Pursuit Of Happiness” (feat. MGMT, Ratatat)

Crush a bit, little bit, roll it up, take a hit
Feelin’ lit, feelin’ light, 2 a.m., summer night.
I don’t care, hand on the wheel,
Drivin’ drunk, I’m doin’ my thing
Rollin in the Midwest side and out,
Livin’ my life, getting’ out dreams
People told me slow my roll,
I’m screaming out, fuck that
Imma do just what I want,
Lookin’ ahead no turnin’ back
If I fall, If I die,
Know I lived it to the fullest,
If I fall, if I die,
Know I lived and missed some bullets
CHORUS:
I’m on the pursuit of happiness and I know,
Everything that shine ain’t always gonna be gold
I’ll be fine, once I get it, I’ll be goooood.
I’m on the pursuit of happiness and I know,
Everything that shine ain’t always gonna be gold
I’ll be fine, once I get it, I’ll be goooood.Tell me what you know about dreamin’ (dreamin’)
You don’t really know about nothin’ (nothin’)
Tell me what you know about them night terrors, every night
5 a.m, cold sweats wakin’ up, to the sky
Tell me what you know about dreams, dreams
Tell me what you know about night terrors, nothin’
You don’t really care about the trials of tomorrow
Rather lay awake in a bed full of sorrow

CHORUS:
I’m on the pursuit of happiness and I know,
Everything that shines ain’t always gonna be gold
I’ll be fine once I get it, I’ll be goooood.
I’m on the pursuit of happiness and I know,
Everything that shine ain’t always gonna be gold
I’ll be fine, once I get it, I’ll be goooood.

I’m on the pursuit of happiness and I know,
Everything that shine ain’t always gonna be gold
I’ll be fine, once I get it, I’ll be goooood.

I’m on the pursuit of happiness and I know,
Everything that shines
