I Hope You're Happy Now - Carly Pearce and Lee Brice

The Experience: I thought that I was what you wanted... How to break off a love that isn't meant to be?
The Vibe: Grief. Love.
The Topic: Breakup.
The Value: Love.
The Tension: Hope you're happy now (I always wanted what was best for you) VS. I'm a wreck (But that doesn't mean cutting myself loose from your life is anything but painful).



Music video: He thinks of her. Stops himself from reaching out. Wishes her well from afar. And she... she's moved on. And that's bittersweet because it's both what he hopes for and what he fears. He finally gets closure with that unexpected but peaceful half-smile hello and final goodbye outside the bar.

The Meaning of I Hope You're Happy Now: Ending what was a good relationship is hard. You want to do it without hurting. You want to do it well because you still care. There's no ill will. Just the grief at something beautiful ending. And the resolve to let it end. The key to letting go of love? You have to truly love the person you're saying goodbye to.

Ask yourself: Do you love enough to say goodbye?

Album: Carly Pearce (2020)

LYRICS:

It's all on me, it's my mistake
I said "I don't love you" a little too late
But I guess there ain't ever a right time
And I don't know why it's called a goodbye

Go run my name into the ground
Tell everyone you know just how
How I slammed the door on our forever
But I promise you it's for the better

I hope you find what you were looking me
I hope your heart ain't hurting anymore
And you get moving on, all figured out
And you don't hate me somehow
'Cause I hope you're happy now

Who knew this heart could break this hard
Or a love like ours could fall apart
Without so much as a warning
I though that I was what you wanted

Well I guess you found what you were looking for
I guess my heart ain't worth it anymore
I'm a wreck, I'm a mess
And I ain't got nothing left
And so I hope you're happy now

I hope you find what you were looking for
I guess my heart ain't worth it anymore
Hope you get moving on, all figured out
And you don't hate me somehow
I'm a wreck, I'm a mess
And I ain't got nothing left
So I hope you're happy now
Happy now
Oh, I hope you're happy now
