"I ll Never Be Happy Again" as written by John Wesley Harding and Eleanor Friedberger....
Reggie asked Peter, "Do you know what's wrong with you?"
He said, "What man?" She said, "Nothing."
And that's how I feel about you too
And it's driving me insane
And oh since I met you
I'll never be happy again

Eve asked Roger about his initials, R.O.T.
"What does the O stand for?" and he said, "Nothing"--
That line did it for me
And it's echoed around my brain
An oh, since I heard it
I'll never be happy again

After perfection
It's all downhill
With no time to stand up
And no time to sit still
Frequent rejection
Occasional affection
It's often offered
In the wrong direction

Wally asked Hazel, "Have you lived here all your life?"
And she said twice that time, then later she ends up his wife
Love is an exquisite kind of pain
And oh since I saw you
I'll never be happy again

After perfection
It's all downhill
With no time to stand up
And no time to sit still
Frequent rejection
Occasional affection
It's often offered
In the wrong direction

    My Interpretationat first i thought this was a sad song - and it is, in a way, but i think its looking at the concept of love as this be all / end all emotion. once its reached there is nowhere to go. "since ive met you i'll never be happy again" because you've reached peaked happiness. "after affection its all downhill" - after, or beyond love, what is there?
