“happier” is an song by Olivia Rodrigo. She first teased it on Instagram on January 13, 2020, by posting an acoustic snippet with the caption: “she do be writing doe. ‘happier’ by me!”

According to The Guardian, the piano-led album version of the song sees “the verses spill over beautifully [while] the chorus awkwardly, earnestly strains its crescendo, showing the effort of her beneficence.”

[Verse 1]
We broke up a month ago
Your friends aren’t 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 attached
For all the sunlight of our past
But she’s so sweet, she’s so pretty
Does she mean you forgot about me?

[Chorus]
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

[Verse 2]
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, make you miss my wretched heart
But she’s beautiful, she looks kind
She probably gives you butterflies

[Chorus]
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 loved me
And think of me fondly when your hands are on her
I hope you’re happy but don’t be happier

[Post-Chorus]
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh

[Chorus]
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
