Seeds of Happiness

Words and Music by Charles Feilding
Vocal by Johnny Serrano

There’s a painting on the wall of my studio
Of the woman who gave breath to my soul
It was painted by the hand of my father
Who died before his time so long ago.

She looks a little sad in the painting
Though kindness lifts the corners of her eyes
She loved me for as long as I remember being alive
And I loved her until the day she died.

She taught me the three things we need to be happy
Her words so simple I cannot forget
Something to do, someone to love,  something to hope for
These are the seeds of happiness.

She said the order is important
You need something to do just to survive
But money won’t bring happiness till it’s shared with one you love.
Love brings happiness to life

It’s so easy to be swayed by temptations
To think that better things make better lives.
But time will show these things to be empty hollow promises
Happiness comes only from inside

She taught me the three things we need to be happy
Her words so simple I cannot forget
Something to do, someone to love,  something to hope for.
These are the seeds of happiness.

Something to do
Some one to love
Something to hope for
These are the seeds of happiness.,
