    Your friends are mine
    You know I know you've moved on
    Found someone new
    One more girl who brings out the better in you

    And I thought my heart was detached
    From all the sunlight of our past
    But she's so sweet
    She's so pretty
    Does she mean you forgot about me?

    Oh, I hope you're happy
    But not like how you were with me
    I'm selfish, I know
    I can't let you go
    So find someone great but don't find no one better
    I hope you're happy but don't be happier

    And do you tell her she's the most beautiful girl you've ever seen?
    An eternal love bullshit you know you'll never mean
    Remember when I believed
    You meant it when you said it first to me

    And now I'm pickin' her apart
    Like cuttin' her down will make you miss my wretched heart
    But she's beautiful
    She looks kind
    She probably gives you butterflies

    I hope you're happy
    But not like how you were with me
    I'm selfish, I know
    I can't let you go
    So find someone great but don't find no one better

    I hope you're happy
    I wish you all the best
    Really
    Say you love her, baby
    Just not like you love me
    And think of me fondly when your hand's around her
    I hope you're happy
    But don't be happier

    Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
    Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
    Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

    I hope you're happy
    Just not like how you were with me
    I'm selfish, I know
    Can't let you go
    So find someone great but don't find no one better
    I hope you're happy but don't be happier
