"Happiest Girl" as written by and Martin Gore....
Happiest girl I ever knew
Happiest girl I ever knew

Wanted to feel the joy
Flow between our lips
Wanted to feel the joy
Flow between our hips

Happiest girl I ever knew
Why do you smile the smile you do

Happiest girl I ever knew
Wanted to feel the joy
Pass between our eyes
Wanted to feel the joy
Pass between our thighs

And I would have to pinch her
Just to see if she was real
Just to watch the smile fade away
And see the pain she'd feel

Wanted to feel her joy
Feel it deep within
Wanted to feel her joy
Penetrate my skin

Happiest girl I ever knew
Why do you smile the smile you do

    General CommentThis song makes me think of the people that smile even when they want to cry.. I always imagined the lyrics as a guy and a girl.. Soomething heinous happened to her, he doesn't know it.. He thinks she is wonderful, but does not know what her problem is.. She should be the happiest girl, but something happened along the way.

    General CommentI love this song. It's kind of creepy, but I love it. It sounds like to me, an older man lusting after a younger girl, and she's very joyful all the time and he wants to know more about her..to see if she's really just faking it..and is actually very unhappy.

    General CommentThis song has struck me as being about putting on a facade--the "happy" is so thick that it seems to be entirely fake. Like the other reviewers, I agree that something heinous has happened to this woman, and the protagonist thinks he can see through the mask covering it up, but can't even get close enough to attempt to.
