CITY AND COLOUR – “Happiness By The Kilowatt” (ALEXISONFIRE cover) live

CITY AND COLOUR (Dallas Green’s side project) released his live CD/DVD album back in March 2007. “Happiness By The Kilowatt”, originally by his band ALEXISONFIRE, was one of the livetracks featured on that compilation, and it always feels amazing to recall this quality anthem. Bon appétit!

Lyrics:

So this is continuous happiness
You know, I always
Imagined it something more
With the right drapes, the right paints
The right frames, this could really work
What a great day to spend indoors

Wake, wake up, wake, wake up
Wake, wake up, wake, wake up
Wake, wake up, wake, wake up
Wake, wake up, wake, wake up

In a hail of sparks
And a tangle of wires
Everything went wrong

So where has all the day gone?
And why are my lungs aching when I breathe?
Is there something wrong with the heat?
Why am I so cold?
And my heart feels sick
And it hurts when I speak
And this is not what I hoped for

Wake, wake up, wake, wake up
Wake, wake up, wake, wake up
Wake, wake up, wake, wake up
Wake, wake up, wake, wake up

Was this what we hoped for?
It’s not what we hoped for!
It’s not what, what we, we hoped for!

Was this what we hoped for?
It’s not what we hoped for!
It’s not!
