I Hope You're Happy.

I Hope You’re Happy.

Did you ever love someone so much it hurt,
They say that they love you, but treat you like dirt,
They never once told you how they really felt,
Then your heart turns to ice and your love for them melts,
And you’re left in a world so empty and free,
You’re everything you tried not to be,
You beg them to stay, but you know that you’re through,
And you can’t believe this is happening to you,
And please don’t say you didn’t know this could be,
‘Cos you did it to us, Babe, yeah, you did it to me,

Baby, why did you let me get hurt,
‘Cos it didn’t get better, it just got worse,
You know, I tho’t love was great, but it seems like a curse,
On me, o’, how could it be,
I’ve been lied to and cheated and now I’ve been used,
If you didn’t love me how could you let me love you,
And now you can see what a love can do,
To me, o’ how could it be,
I hope you’re happy… you’re free,

Did you think that my love would just go away,
The minute you didn’t want me to stay,
No, I still have my love for you inside,
And I shouldn’t try to hide what’s so easy to find,
And I can’t seem to say don’t worry about me,
I’ll be fine tomorrow morning just wait and see,
I could never say something so wrong and so dumb,
Anyway, I’ve heard tomorrow never comes,
And I can’t say I hate you ‘cos I never will,
But I can say I love you ‘cos that’s how I feel,

Baby, why did you let me get hurt,
‘Cos it didn’t get better, it just got worse,
You know, I tho’t love was great, but it seems like a curse,
On me, o’, how could it be,
I’ve been lied to and cheated and now I’ve been used,
If you didn’t love me how could you let me love you,
And now you can see what a love can do,
To me, o’ how could it be,
I hope you’re happy… you’re free,

When you got to know me did I get kind of old,
What was it in me that turned your love kind of cold,
Did your eyes see a person much better than me,
Was it something in you or was it something in me,
Do me a favor, don’t be so immature,
The next time you love someone for their sake be sure,
‘Cos they’ll be saying what I say to myself,
Baby, why couldn’t you pick on somebody else,
Then they’ll be hurtin’ just like me,
They never knew how sad they could be,

And they realize you didn’t really love them at all,
You’re just building emotions and watching them fall,
And you’ll find yourself living a life of ease,
The life of a flirt, yeah, the life of a tease,
You’ll keep on hurtin’ again and again,
Do you fall in love to impress your friends,
No, that ain’t why, it’s all your fault,
‘Cos people like you don’t have friends at all,
They’re either your love or at one time they were,
Yeah, and one of these days you’ll get what you deserve,

You’re gonna find a love that is true,
And, Baby, he’s gonna walk out on you,
You’ll scream and yell and kick and cry,
And search and never find out why,
Then maybe you’ll realize what you’ve done to me,
The last love you faked and everyone in between,
Then you’ll be saying what I did at first,
Did you ever love someone so much it hurt,
And please don’t say you didn’t know this could be,
‘Cos you did it to us, Babe, yeah, you did it to me,

Baby, why did you let me get hurt,
‘Cos it didn’t get better, it just got worse,
You know, I tho’t love was great, but it seems like a curse,
On me, o’, how could it be,
I’ve been lied to and cheated and now I’ve been used,
If you didn’t love me how could you let me love you,
And now you can see what a love can do,
To me, o’ how could it be,
I hope you’re happy… you’re free.
