Happy For Me – Ilana Charnelle

From the album A Minute of Your Time (2020).

You told me it’d be easy for me to move on

But you told me that you were the only one

Who’d ever treat me, the way you treat me

Wish I’d known just how right that was

Years and years and oceans away

Unravelling what I wanted to say

And you? You’ll find another ingenue 

To distract you from whatever you’re going through

Hope it stings just a little

Don’t hope you’re broken, but I hope you’re brittle

It’ll burn going down that I made it out somehow

Not happy for your misery

But god I’m happy for me

The hardest part of leaving is staying gone

But lucky you wasted no time in moving on

You were so happy, ask anybody

But you never stayed happy for long

We soar, we cry, we get up each day

It’s worth the fight to live this way

And you? You’ll find another ingenue 

To distract you from whatever you’re going through

Hope it stings just a little

Don’t hope you’re broken, but I hope you’re brittle

It’ll burn going down that I made it out somehow

Not happy for your misery

But god I’m happy for me

Sorry, sorry, I’m sorry for you

You won’t feel sorry cause you never had to 

Sorry, sorry, I’m sorry for you

And all the girls you’ll cycle through

Sorry, sorry, I’m sorry for you

You won’t feel sorry cause you never had to 

Sorry, sorry, I’m sorry for you

And all the girls you’ll cycle through

Hope it stings just a little

Don’t hope you’re broken, but I hope you’re brittle

It’ll burn going down that I made it out somehow

Not happy for your misery

No, no, no, no

But I hope it stings just a little

Don’t hope you’re broken, but I hope you’re brittle

It’ll burn going down that I made it out somehow

Not happy for your misery

But god I’m happy for me
