  • Lyrics
  • This song is about a breakup, with Avril saying farewell to the happy ending that could've been. The song finds her dumped, looking for answers, and realizing that he wasn't being genuine this whole time. She puts some of the blame on his dumb friends, who she knows talked bad about her.
  • In the video and the radio edit, the line "All the s--t that you do" is replaced with "All the stuff that you do."
  • Meiert Avis directed the video, which shows Lavigne dealing with the cad she sings about before picking up a guitar and playing the song on a rooftop.

  • Esskayess from Dallas, TxAnyone who can't identify with this song is either unbelievably lucky or needs to get out more often.
  • Miranda from Columbus, OhTo my ex -- I miss you, I still love you.
    So thank you for nothing, wasting my time. I hope you listen to this and feel bad about what you have done to me. Thank you. I'm out.



    What I mean to say is....amazing song to express feelings.

  • Emily from -, MiThis song means means a relationship where he was everything she ever wanted, but it turned out he was using her for fame.
  • Lisa from Oshkosh, WiThis song is great ! I can totally understand her and how she feels. I can really understand her because I have a special someone that (to me) likes two other girls! One my friend and one who used to sit by me.
  • Matthew from Milford, MaDoes anyone here know someone by the name of Rikku McClow Fox?
  • Katy from Portland, Orthis song describes me and my ex boyfriend.
  • Dave from Cardiff, WalesI remember when this came out a lot of critics in the UK likened it to Amy Studt's 2003 hit "Misfit". The two artists do sound the same generally. That period seemed to be the age of the female teen star! This song continued an impressive run of five consecutive UK Top 10 hits for Avril Lavigne - it would be three years before she scored her next Top 10 hit with "Girlfriend"
  • Morgan from Gresham, OrI am really in a situation that is a lot like this song, my ex boyfriend broke up with me over a really stupid reason and mainly just because his friends dont think I'm good enough for him, every guy I go out with always gets crap from their friends about dating me
  • Morgan from Gratnsville, Utthis is an awesome song
  • Ashfree from Fachigo Fake, CanadaI can relate to this song alot!
  • Lisa from Wexford, IrelandThis describes the end of a friendship I had a while back. Its odd, we both loved Avril lavigne too...the line "you've got your dumb friends/i know what they say/they tell you i'm difficult/ but so are they" gets me everytime because its exactly the situation!
  • Joseph from Burlington, WiThis song tells a story about things coming to an end, and the resulting regrets that come form a once percieved good thing being over, bravo Avril for being in touch with your inner person
  • Emma from Telford, UtMy Happy Ending is my fav song in the whole world and i listen to it over 10 times a day and i'm a very big avril fan!!!!!!!!!
