"Happier" as written by Ryan Miller, Adam S. Gardner and Brian A. Rosenworcel....
Say goodbye
Lose your friends
Make them go
Don't need them around

Cause it's time
Lose your friends
Make them go
Was never supposed to be like this

They were too weak too prone to break
They're needs too deep their skin too thin
By now you took what was to take
Tear it apart and start again

So go on
If this will make you happier
It got you this far
Do what you have to

You've wasted
Every moment
Of your Saturdays
And your Sunday
You're wasted from the boredom
Was never supposed to be like this

Like your father said
Just do what was done unto you
Always in your father's steps
You'll do what was done unto you
It won't be hard to start again

So go on
If this will make you happier
It got you this far
Do what you have to

And you're gone now
( You've know this would come and you've left me alone )
And did it make you happier?
( You're lost and your gone. Don't take it so seriously )
Was it that hard?
( Go on and get going. I'm fine on my own )
Did what you had to
( It got you this far. Finally got it figured out )

One more inch
You son of a bitch
Been a waste of my time
Always
Now you're half awake
You bend till you break
And make the same mistakes
Always

So go on if this will make you happier
It got you this far
Do what you have to

And you're gone now
( You've know this would come and you've left me alone )
And did it make you happier?
( You're lost and your gone. Don't take it so seriously )
Was it that hard?
( Go on and get going. I'm fine on my own )
Did what you had to
( It got you this far. Finally got it figured out )

    General Commentthis song, i believe, deals with something that everyone has had to deal with at one point in their lives: losing a friend to the "cool kids". In nearly every circle of friends there is a person who will undoubityly strive to be more popular. This song is a kind of kiss of to that friend...er...ex-friend.

    General CommentYeah, I know how this feels.

    "You're lost and you're gone
    Don't take it so seriously"

    That's the part that always gets to me. It's almost like it's sarcastic; their friend that's left doesn't seem to care. It's exactly how I feel about one of my "friends". She just distanced herself from me and it doesn't appear to be hurting her at all, while I kind of died on the inside.

    Wow, cheesy much? Anyway, that's my input for now.

    Song MeaningHmm.. I think this song has to do with something we all have to do at some point in time, say goodbye to friend because of what they might have done or do. It kind of talks about the friend pushing someone to that point of: ALRIGHT. GO. NOW. I'M SICK OF THIS. or whatnot. And the lyrics in ( )'s are what the friend is saying, trying to say that it's nothing they're taking it all too seriously.
    Amazing song too <3 Really has helped me figure things out when I was all spazztic about the same sort of thing...

    General Commentbefore i knew the rest of the words to this song, i thought it was my anthem - "you've wasted every moment of your saturdays and your sundays..." even though i know how it all goes now, and it's not really my song, i still love it.

    General Commentthe friend thing totally fits. before reading the other comments, i thought this was about someone moving away or making a big change in his or her life. they thought it'd be easy to start again in a new, better town/friends/etc., but it turns out to be difficult and they aren't as happy as they imagined they'd be in the new situation.

    General CommentI agree that this song is about friendships... I think the person was in the wrong group because he/she didn't know where else to turn. Then one day he/she realized that they are better than that group of friends, and maybe is being held down by them. By leaving, a new world will open ahead.
