  • (Never thought I'd be happy, happy)
    (Never thought I'd be happy, happy)

    I didn't think I would see you here tonight
    But there's something kinda nice about it
    It's been a year since you gave me back my love
    And I wonder how you've been without it

    You're holding someone close
    Should hurt, somehow it don't
    I guess that's how I know I've finally let you go

    I never thought I'd be happy to see you with somebody new
    Never thought I'd be happy to see you do the things we do
    With somebody else, guess now
    You're more yourself
    Oh, I never thought I'd be happy to see you with somebody new

    (Never thought I'd be happy)
    (Never thought I'd be happy)

    Spent all my weekends pretending I was fine
    Just to get you out my mind for an evening (for an evening)
    I used to wish you would never find the one
    But it's good to see you loved, let's call it even

    You're holding someone close
    Should hurt, somehow it don't
    I guess that's how I know I've finally let you go

    I never thought I'd be happy to see you with somebody new
    Never thought I'd be happy to see you do the things we do
    With somebody else, guess now
    You're more yourself
    Oh, I never thought I'd be happy to see you with somebody new

    So many nights of barely sleeping
    Wide awake and dreaming
    I wanted you back
    (I wanted you back)
    It's clear we're good without each other
    Dancing with another
    It's better like that

    Never thought I'd be happy
    Never thought I'd be happy
    With somebody else, it's like
    You're more yourself
    Oh, I never thought I'd be happy to see you with somebody new
    Never thought I'd be happy to see you with somebody new
    Never thought I'd be happy to see you do the things we do
    With somebody else, guess now
    You're more yourself
    Oh, I never thought I'd be happy to see you with somebody new Writer/s: Anthony West, Josephine Vander Gucht, Sasha Yatchenko
