When I see you cry
Talking on the phone at night
You never tell me why
When it all goes down
And you know shit gets around
And rumors are true
I'll never have a friend quite as lovely again

And I'm not responsible for the ending that I know is inevitable

Yes, I understand you're happy now
And I understand your hand-me-down towel
Yes, I understand you're happy now
Better to be happy than to never know

Well it pins me to
An exaggerated view --
Correct me if I'm wrong
And it's man's best friend
And the tin's empty again
Degrade yourself now
I never took a pill wasn't guaranteed to thrill

And I ought to know you standing up sober
I ought to know your black & white look
I ought to know just like your dad told you
I ought to know mistakes you mis... took

You can paint it black
You can use thickest shellac
And still be see-through
And with everything I say
I mean it in the best way
To have it be true

And it's not impossible
For a friend to heed the slack behind the pull

Yes, I understand you're happy now
And I understand your hand-me-down towel
Yes, I understand you're happy now
Better to be happy

And I ought to know you standing up sober
I ought to know your black and white look
I ought to know just like your dad told you
I ought to know mistakes you mis...

Yes, I understand you're happy now
Yes, I understand you're happy now
Yes, I understand you're happy now
Yes, I understand...
Better to be happy
Than to never know
