Now, don't just walk away
Pretending everything's ok
And you don't care about me
And I know there's just no use
When all your lies become your truths and I don't care...
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Could you look me in the eye
And tell me that you're happy now,
Ohhh, ohhh
Would you tell it to my face
Or have I been erased,
Are you happy now?
Are you happy now?

You took all there was to take,
And left me with an empty plate
And you don't care about it, yeah.
And I am givin' up this game
And leaving you with all the blame cause I don't care,
Yeah, yeah yeah,

Could you look me in the eye?
And tell me that you're happy now,
Oohh oohhh
Would you tell it to my face
Or have I been erased,
Are you happy now?
Ohhh, ohhhh
Are you happy now?
Are you happy now?
Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Do you really have everything you want?
You can't ever give somethin' you ain't got
You can't run away from yourself

Could you look me in the eye?
And tell me that you're happy now,
Yeah, yeah
Come on, tell it to my face
Or have I been replaced,
Are you happy now?
Ohhh, ohhhh
Are you happy now?

Would you look me in the eye?
Could you look me in the eye?
I've had all that I can take
I'm not about to break
Cause I'm happy now,
Ohhh, ohhh
Are you happy now?

    A beautiful relationship ended and the guy is pretending he never cared about it but he isn't fooling michelle; she knows that deep down he still cares about her and he isn't happy with his decision to leave her. She's kind of taunting him in the song, saying "are you happy now? " sarcastically. She's hurt by what he did to her but she isn't going to dwell on it and she's moving on
