Ed Sheeran: Happier Meaning

Song Released: 2017



Happier Lyrics

Play "Happier"
on Amazon Music

Walking down 29th and Park
I saw you in another's arms
Only a month we've been apart
You look happier

Saw you walk inside a bar
He said something to make you laugh
I saw that both your smiles were twice as wide as ours
Yeah, you look...

    This really is a heart wrenching song. I heard this on the radio and got hooked.

    It's about a guy who is still in love with his ex. We notice in the song he hurt her in the relationship when he says nobody hurt you like i do. She has moved on with another guy ed sees them at a bar and she seems happy. Happier then when ed was with her. (Nothing more breaks your heart then seeing somone you still have feelings for have feelings for somone else) he makes a statement in the end i will wait for you. Ed kind of hopes one day she will break up with her new lover so he can be back with her, even though ed says I promise I will not take it personal, he certainly does take it personal. At the end of the day all he can really do is nurse a empty bottle and drink his feelings away. His friends tell him one day he will feel (happier) to.

    I think the song is mean to be about the heart ache of losing someone . The boy hurt his girlfriend , maybe by cheating or saying something he shouldn’t have. She broke up with him . He’s now realizing how much he messed up now that he sees her with another guy . Because it’s a rebound , he’s saying that he’ll wait until this sort of “break” period is over .

    So This Song literally means that he once hurt Her feelings but Now that he's seeing her moving on after their Breakup He finds That he still loves her and regrets hurting her Feelings , he still wants her to come back but if She's Happy with the other guy then It's okay And He will someday Move On with that But if she's Not happy he'll wait for her To come back.This Breaks my heart and i feel physically hurt.I saw the music Video which didn't Really made any sense I'm told dumb to understand the Official music video but I understood the lyrics ,

    This song is a message to one girl from one boy who still loves her even though she’s with someone else. The boy will wait until it is his time to be together with her again.

    "you look happier, you do. My friends told me one day, I'd feel it to."

    The lyrics says it all.

    How the song lyrics hits us hard. It hurts knowing that there are a lot of cases of that kind of love story. It was tragic. Though, it was meant to happen and all we need is to accept it.

    'happier' is about a guy/girl who loved THAT someone so much that as he/she breaks, he/she watched how her/his love one be happy WITH SOMEONE ELSE. There's nothing painful more than that. But all that you can do is to accept it and just be happy for it. Because one day you'll move on and you'd be happy just the way she/he is now.

    Loving her is so utterly bad, but I really love her from head to toe..

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    He finally found the person that he loves and even though he hurt her he will wait for her no matter how long it takes and even though she looks happier with her new boyfriend he will always be there for her and will drop everything to be there for her

    Ed and his girlfriend broke up. The girl rebounded since it's only a month since they broke up. He sees them at a bar and see's how much 'happier' she looks and his heart still belongs to her. He's miserable without her and wants her so utterly bad. And he'll even wait for her.

    It's like he's trying to say he still needs you and wants you even though he hurt you. He knows he hurt you but he just can't move on.

    he and his girlfriend broke up and now she's with someone else, and she looks happier than she did when she was with him. and although they're going their separate ways, he can't help but still want her and wait around for her
