time you needed time out of the mainstream
out on your only
alone to find yourself somehow

so i'm a bit surprised to see you lately
beside a brand new baby
but if it makes you happy now

i guess that's great
i guess you're not mine
brand new baby beside you now oh yeah

i guess that's great
you don't see me cryin'
and there's nobody to slow you down oh yeah

if you're feeling sorry try to contain it
you don't need to save me
don't waste your pity anyhow

and you might like to believe i'm devastated
to see you with your brand new baby
well if it makes you happy nowi guess that's great
i guess you're not mine
brand new baby beside you now oh yeah

i guess that's great
you don't see me cryin'
and there's nobody to slow you down

seen you with your brand new baby
sure it fazes me just to hear you laughing
makes me just a little crazy but i guess it's a great thing
if it makes you happy now

    General CommentI think that this song is about someone breaking up with someone, and the reason they broke up is because the other person didn't want a relationship, and now they see them in another happy relationship and are just a bit upset that it worked out with another person and not them, yet they're still in love with them and just glad they're happy (if u can understand that-hehe)

    General CommentLooks like someone can dish it out but can't take it...
    and way to get back at him five years later, that'll really put him in his place.

    That said, your interpretation is spot on.

    Song Meaningyeah its about seeing your ex so much happier and better off without you. and hes like sort of (slightly) in denial about being okay with it. and its obviously not easy to cope. the line 'i guess your not mine' .. makes me wonder if the ex in this situation maybe left the door open to possibilities with the guy. like 'oh i guess you didnt want me after all' .. cause people can mislead you into thinking theirs hope in the future, just to ease the rejection.
