  • Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    So much for my happy ending
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    So much for my happy ending
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    Let's talk this over
    It's not like we're dead
    Was it something I did?
    Was it something you said?
    Don't leave me hanging
    In a city so dead
    Held up so high on such a breakable thread (breakable thread)

    You were all the things I thought I knew
    And I thought we could be

    You were everything, everything that I wanted (that I wanted)
    We were meant to be, supposed to be, but we lost it (we lost it)
    And all of the memories, so close to me, just fade away
    All this time you were pretending
    So much for my happy ending

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    So much for my happy ending
    Oh, oh, oh, oh

    You've got your dumb friends
    I know what they say (know what they say)
    They tell you I'm difficult
    But so are they (but so are they)
    But they don't know me
    Do they even know you? (even know you)
    All the things you hide from me
    All the shit that you do (all the shit that you do)

    You were all the things I thought I knew
    And I thought we could be

    You were everything, everything that I wanted (that I wanted)
    We were meant to be, supposed to be, but we lost it (we lost it)
    And all of the memories, so close to me, just fade away
    All this time you were pretending
    So much for my happy ending

    It's nice to know that you were there
    Thanks for acting like you cared
    And making me feel like I was the only one
    It's nice to know we had it all
    Thanks for watching as I fall
    And letting me know we were done

    He was everything, everything that I wanted
    We were meant to be, supposed to be, but we lost it
    And all of the memories, so close to me just fade away
    All this time you were pretending
    So much for my happy ending

    You were everything, everything that I wanted (that I wanted)
    We were meant to be, supposed to be, but we lost it
    And all of the memories, so close to me, just fade away
    All this time you were pretending
    So much for my happy ending

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    So much for my happy ending
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    So much for my happy ending

  • 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.
  • Azalea from Hot Springs, ArThis is exactly how I feel about my ex boyfriend.
  • Savannah from Tulsa, Okthis song is amazing [=
  • Cristina from Long Beach, Cathis is the best song and i am a huge fan of hers she know who she is and is true to herself i love her and i love this song one of the best ever i love the lyrics
    So mcuh for my happy ending
  • 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!!!!!!!!!
