This new Single “Happy Most Days” was written both in Dublin and Queensland when Alan’s father was very sick and at death’s door. His father always looked on the bright side of life so Alan tried to emulate this positive attitude while acknowledging the terrible turmoil going on at the same time. In the song.


Happy Most Days.
A dog off the lead.
The smell of the wind
The world at your feet
Happy most days the positive vibe
Choices to me make there’s a natural high

Lay your hands on me now
We'll walk this pier as the sun goes down
There's a silver moon over the town
There's no need to be alone

Happy most days riding the waves
Memories filled with light and shade
Happy most days but not tonight
I’m dulling the pain that keeps me alive.

Lay your hands on me now
We’ll walk this pier as the sun goes down
There’s a silver moon over this town
There’s no need to be alone , o no you don't.

I am here to figure it out yeah
I am here to figure it out yeah
I am here to figure it out yeah …….
No need to be alone.
Happy Most Days yeah yeah yeah
