BackgroundEdit

Critical ResponseEdit

"This isn't a statement, but more of a question. You'd be forgiven for assuming Fifth Harmony have no issues with self-confidence judging by their fearless brand of pop, but here we hear them doubting themselves for the first time. "Why am I scared of happy?" they ask over those jittery synths Justin Bieber made popular with 'Sorry'. But despite the uncertainty, overall it's a vibrant house-pop fizz that you'll soon be adding to the poolside playlist.", according to Lewis Corner of Digitalspy.

"“Usually fearless, why am I scared of happy,” this is our favourite song off the album — hands down. The beautiful, relatable lyrics paired with the up tempo, infectious beats of the tune make it the perfect song from the girls.", according to Brittany Goldfield Rodrigues of ANDPOP.

LyricsEdit

Lauren:
It's been a while since I was lost for words
Needles and static and stutters
I never knew a love that doesn't hurt
Feeling the heat and the burn

Camila:
Just give me one good reason
Drop everything and leave it
Seconds away from turning this car back around
Something about your feeling, pushing and pulling me in
And now my walls fall down

Dinah (with Fifth Harmony):
Usually fearless, (why am I scared of happy?)
Usually fearless, (why am I scared of happy?)
I'm afraid of nothing, I'm afraid of no one
Used to be fearless, (why am I) scared of happy?

Camila:
Scared of happy

Ally:
There is something good in sticking to your guns
No one to blame but yourself
I take a step back and I breathe for once
This is what I want

Normani:
You give me one good reason
Drop everything and leave it
Seconds away from pulling up outside your door
Something about your feeling, pushing and pulling me in
That's why I come back for more

Dinah (with Fifth Harmony):
Usually fearless, (why am I scared of happy?)
Usually fearless, (why am I scared of happy?)
I'm (afraid of nothing, I'm afraid of no one)
Used to be fearless, (why am I) scared of happy?

Camila:
Scared of happy

Lauren:
When it all goes down, mmh
When it all goes down

Camila:
When it all goes down
Will you still be around?
I'm coming back, no more running away

Dinah (with Fifth Harmony) (Camila ad-libs):
Usually fearless, (why am I scared of happy?)
Usually fearless, (why am I scared of happy?)
I'm (afraid of nothing, I'm afraid of no one)
Used to be fearless, (why am I) scared of happy?

Fifth Harmony (Camila):
Why am I scared of happy? (Scared of happy)
Why am I scared of happy? (Scared of happy)
Why am I scared of happy? (Scared of happy)
Why am I?

Something about your feeling, pushing and pulling me in
And now my walls fall down
