Why are People So Cold and So Pent Up

Why are people so cold and so pent up?
im nothing like that.
I have always been a happy camper no matter what .
Perhaps it's the culture and perhaps not.
Maybe it is sharing of yourself and most cannot.
I'm happily married are you? 
Oh, I can see why. 
Why would anyone want your company? 
If you cannot even smile a bit or a lot?
Maybe you are a loner 
I can understand.
Maybe you have been hurt and afraid to try again
or maybe not.
Maybe you are sitting with your scotch and soda 
Weed and sorrow or maybe not.
You say im happy and to buzz off
Ok, I can see myself out
I just do not understand 
Most people are not like me.
And that of course is ok 
That's the way you want to be.
I noticed since my eyes are wide open and I can see
When I play music it has to be upbeat 
I stay away from them blues
If you know what I mean.
