You Could Be Happy Lyrics

You could be happy
and i won't know.
But you wernt happy
the day i watched you go.

And all the things that I wish
I had not said.
Are played in loops
til its madness in my head.

Is it too late to remind you
how we were.
And not...

    Girl/Guy want one another back in relationship, but one hurt the other therefore they will not accept the relationship again, ending in one of them having to be sad and the one who got hurt happy, cause the sad one was selfish and the hurt one is doing better.

    The meaning to this song is smiple, its about a couple who love eachother but thinks its best to step back for a relationship. It looks asthough he may have said a few things he wish he didn't, but its too late. He obvioulys wants the girl back but instead has to watch her be happy from the back seat for a while. He thinks that he is holding the girl back and not letting her fill he pertensiols so decides its best to let go and let her live her life. Two people can both love and care for eachother very much but for some reason decide a relationship is not what's best, this song is a perfect example for this situation.

    This song is about loving someone so much that u let them go because that is what is best for them.Sometime no matter how much two people care about eachother, they cannot be together. It doesnt mean for a second that they dont love eachother, they just have to step back and watch eachother be happy from a distance. Breaks my heart and I miss him everyday... but I hope that he is happy

    This song is about a couple who loved each other but the timing wasnt quite right for them and he is letting her go from his life to make sure she can live her life without him holding her back. You can love someone so much but still have to let them go due to timing or circumstances. He would have her back in second. but she's got to lead her life first.

    I know what this situation feels like. Every time I hear this song it reminds me of what I had with someone and it breaks my heart that we did what we did.

    You could be happy and I won't know
    But you weren't happy the day I watched you go

    And all the things that I wished I had not said
    Are played in loops 'till it's madness in my head

    Is it too late to remind you how we were
    But not our last days of silence, screaming, blur

    Most of what I remember makes me sure
    I should have stopped you from walking out the door

    You could be happy, I hope you are
    You made me happier than I'd been by far

    Somehow everything I own smells of you
    And for the tiniest moment it's all not true

    Do the things that you always wanted to
    Without me there to hold you back, don't think, just do

    More than anything I want to see you, girl
    Take a glorious bite out of the whole world
