Hey I burn better in the dark
Hey is that me crying
Hey it's pure poison where you are
Hey is that me dying

Tell me a happy ending story
Is there a happy ending story
Is there? Is there?
Tell me a happy ending story
Oh, tell me a story

Hey, for every ending tragedy
Hey, yeah, I'll rip your heart out
Hey for every evil..come blazing
Hey I'll tear the sun down

Tell me a happy ending story
Tell me a happy ending story
Is there ! Is there !
Tell me a happy ending story
Oh, tell me a story

The grace is lost, the grace is won.
The feel goodness has overcome.
The lonely ache that you just resurrect. uh huh
The ghosts of him watch him scream..
It's coming from the depths of me.
Watch him die his lonely little death. uh huh

Hey, the quicksands coming to a bitter end
Hey, is that me crying
Hey, the stars crash down, don't let 'em in
Hey, is that me dying

Tell me a happy ending story
Tell me a happy ending story
Is there? Is there?
Tell me a happy ending story
Oh, tell me a story

Watch you wilt and watch you bloom,
imprisoned in the chest of doom.
The loneliness that defies, I'll believe
The rain has lost that war that's won,
the battle has just begun.
He haunts me to the marrow of my grief,
ease my mind.

    My OpinionThe raw, emotional and tortured Courtney Love that we love. A beautiful, haunting song.

    My InterpretationI believe she is singing about someone she has lost "Kurt Cobain" and now she is looking for a her happy ending story....like we all are.
