The blues they sent to meet me
Won’t defeat me
It won’t be long till happiness steps up to greet me
Remember that one? It was the theme song to a movie released the year I was born, and it was the first American hit of the 1970s.
Anyway, I like it, and it reminds me of my favorite Kinks song.
I know tomorrow you’ll find better things.
I like them because they posit happiness as something that will find you, or that you will find. I.e. one way or another you’ll bump into each other.
I found a lakeful of it yesterday; when I stepped in to get my feet wet, it stepped up to greet me.
