Happier Lyrics

[Verse 1: Olivia Rodrigo]
We broke up a month ago
Your friends are mine, you know I know
You've moved on,  found someone new
One more girl who brings out the better in you
And I thought my heart was detached
From all the sunlight of our past
But she's so sweet, she's so pretty
Does she mean you forgot about me?

[Chorus: Olivia Rodrigo]
Oh, I hope you're happy
But not like how you were with me
I'm selfish, I know, I can't let you go
So find someone great, but don't find no one better
I hope you're happy, but don't be happier

[Verse 2: Olivia Rodrigo]
And do you tell her
She's the most beautiful girl you've ever seen?
An eternal love bullsh!t you know you'll never mean
Remember when I believed
You meant it when you said it first to me?
And now I'm picking her apart
Like cutting her down will make you miss my wretched heart
But she's beautiful, she looks kind
She probably gives you butterflies

[Chorus: Olivia Rodrigo]
I hope you're happy
But not like how you were with me
I'm selfish, I know, I can't let you go
So find someone great, but don't find no one better
I hope you're happy
I wish you all the best, really
Say you love her, baby, just not like you loved me
And think of me fondly when your hands are on her
I hope you're happy, but don't be happier

[Bridge: Olivia Rodrigo]
Oh, oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh

[Chorus: Olivia Rodrigo]
I hope you're happy
Just not like how you were with me
I'm selfish, I know, can't let you go
So find someone great, but don't find no one better
I hope you're happy, but don't be happier
