  • Walking down 29th and Park
    I saw you in another's arms
    Only a month we've been apart
    You look happier

    Saw you walk inside a bar
    He said something to make you laugh
    I saw that both your smiles were twice as wide as ours
    Yeah, you look happier, you do

    Ain't nobody hurt you like I hurt you
    But ain't nobody love you like I do
    Promise that I will not take it personal, baby
    If you're moving on with someone new

    'Cause baby you look happier, you do
    My friends told me one day I'll feel it too
    And until then I'll smile to hide the truth
    But I know I was happier with you

    Sat on the corner of the room
    Everything's reminding me of you
    Nursing an empty bottle and telling myself you're happier
    Aren't you?

    Ain't nobody hurt you like I hurt you
    But ain't nobody need you like I do
    I know that there's others that deserve you
    But my darling, I am still in love with you

    But I guess you look happier, you do
    My friends told me one day I'd feel it too
    I could try to smile to hide the truth
    I know I was happier with you

    Baby, you look happier, you do
    I knew one day you'd fall for someone new
    But if breaks your heart like lovers do
    Just know that I'll be waiting here for you Writer/s: Benjamin Joseph Levin, Edward Christopher Sheeran, Ryan Benjamin Tedder

  • Channing from ScI love this song even though me and my boyfriend are not ex’s. But I can relate to this song with my boyfriend because currently we are doing a long distance relationship and this song encourages me.
