Is that just a myth?
Why do they call it the "pursuit of happiness"?
Is it because the "pursuit" is the only part that exists?

My college app asked me, "Why do you do what you do?"
What happens if I don't have the answer?
The answer eluded me then, it escapes me now
And it might still be missing fifty years into the future

I'm on the pursuit of happiness
What is it that fills that void?
Is it love, religion, job satisfaction?
Only time will tell how to feel that thing called joy
