"Happy Ending" as written by and Fabrizio Moretti Nick Valensi....
Say it all
Just get it all off your chest
Shake it up
500,000 times
Say no more
We don't believe anything
Teenage angst
Come all ages

Baby, show me where to go
Somethings I don't wanna know
Baby, tell me if you're sure
Out all the time

Say it all
I'm not awake anymore
Change my mind
2,000 times before
Seen a knight
Dance on the side of the road
Teenage angst
Come all ages

Baby, show me where to go
Some things I don't wanna know
Baby, tell me if you're sure
Out all the time

Feel the dizzy
Feel the running show
All I want to see
All I want to know
Watch you as you stay
Faces at your door
Waitin' for your piece
Come and train your pleads

Baby, show me where to go
Somethings I don't wanna know
Baby, tell me if you're sure
Out all the time
'Cause I don't wanna see everybody get together
Leave these dreams alone
You don't wanna have to tell me that I wanted you to fall
Everybody needs a shadow, oh

    My InterpretationI'm going to share with you the meaning of the song but it doesn't mean i'm right. It's just my opinion. When I read the meaning of the song somehow I could relate to it because I have experienced it few years ago. So no offends everyone. Pls forgive me.

    Basically the meaning of the lyrics in my understanding in happy ending by the strokes is about unrequited love. A boy fall in love with a girl. He really loves her and to him the girl is his whole world. He try a lots of time to get her but everything is in vain. So in the end he gave up because he thought there is no way they are fated together and he want the girl to leave her because he believe he's out of time because he have wasted lots of time but it's really hard for him to leave. He wants to give up but at the same time he really want to stay. he waits for her but he really want to go. Sometime he wish she would be there for him to catch him when he fall. Sometime he wish that girl love him but he knows that is an illusion he created. Sometime he can't take it. he feel he's losing his mind for this girl but he knows it an illusion. It's a lie. He wish when he disappear that girl would comeback but he knows that would never happen. he really need somebody. he's blaming everything around him when things get hard such as his love life. Something like that. btw tinterpret you're right, all of the song are connected about his life, every song track of it.

    My InterpretationI think the song is about a man who has a thing with this girl who is young and restless, which bothers him. He throughs out the idea that they should think about settling down or something of the sort, but she just brushes the idea off. i know this doesn't really coincide with one way trigger, but whatever dude.

    Say it all, just get it all off your chest
    Shake it up 500,000 times
    Say no more, we don't believe anything
    Teenage angsts come all ages

    Baby, show me where to go
    Some things, I don't wanna know
    Baby, tell me it's for sure
    I wanna die

    Say it all, I'm not awake anymore
    Changed my mind 2,000 times before
    See the knight dance on the side of the road
    Teenage angsts come all ages

    Baby, show me where to go
    Some things, I don't wanna know
    Baby, tell me it's for sure
    I wanna die

    In the dizzy love
    In the running show
    All I want to see (not gonna take it anymore)
    All I want to know
    Watch you as you stay (cuz there's nothing left to know)
    Faces at your door
    Waiting for no peace (I don't want this anymore)
    Pull the trigger, please

    Baby, show me where to go
    Some things, I don't wanna know
    Baby, tell me it's for sure
    I wanna die

    Cuz I don't wanna see everybody get together
    The hazy dreams below
    You don't have to tell me that I wanted you go
    Everybody needs a shadow, oh
