I lost my true love back in 1989
She was the greatest friend that you could ever find
Now there are children swinging off her homemade skirt
When I grow up I might ask her to mend this hurt

Cause I’m only happy half the time
Yah, I’m only happy half the time

I lost my true love back in 1994
She did not want to belong to me anymore
Now I picture her laughing through a glass of wine
And I cry more tears but she was never only mine

And she’s only happy half the time
Yah she’s only happy half the time
She’s only happy half the time
Yah she’s only happy half the time

I found my true love back in 1996
I knew I'd find her when I headed for the sticks
But she's no country girl and she won't give up on me yet
Each night I tell her I love her and hoping she'll forget

That we're only happy half the time
We're only happy half the time
We're only happy half the time
Yah we’re only happy half the time
