You Could Be Happy Lyrics - Snow Patrol
Review The Song (26)
You could be happy and I won't know
But you weren't happy the day I watched you go
And all the things that I wished I had not said
Are played in loops 'till it's madness in my head
Is it too late to remind you how we were
But not our last days of silence, screaming, blur
Most of what I remember makes me sure
I should have stopped you from walking out the door
You could be happy, I hope you are
You made me happier than I'd been by far
Somehow everything I own smells of you
And for the tiniest moment it's all not true
Do the things that you always wanted to
Without me there to hold you back, don't think, just do
More than anything I want to see you, girl
Take a glorious bite out of the whole world

Nothing is as fitting... | Reviewer: Martin | 4/8/13
Pretty much the same as the most recent comment...only a hi and a bye now if that. 6 years together, almost a year and a half apart now, my current situation doesn't stop me feeling how I do.
I could never fun a song that explained how I felt until just tonight watching Gavin and Stacey and hearing this track.
She's happy now and in love looking forward to her new future. I wish I had just one moment to be able to share this with her so she knew how I felt but it would only annoy or upset her and I don't want that.
I still love you Babi, you'll just never know how much and how much I still hurt even though I walked away.
Take care and if you ever happen to stumble across this, I hope you know it's from me...
All the best x

Its been almost 3 months since everything we had has crashed. It was almost all my fault but she has hers also but then, If only I didn't let my pride and anger win over me, maybe she's still here, well, I can still see here cause we samely attend gatherings and events but then its now different, She doesn't feel excited seeing me. We barely talk, may just a "hi" and "Bye" unlike before that she sleeps in pur house since time has always been not enough for us.
Well, Anyways too much for our dramatic and tearing story.. I heard this when her cousin posted a video of this song. My world stopped when I heard each word of the song, Cause I know, She could be happy if I never ever pushed her away.
To YOU, I miss you so bad.. I can't anymore be happy as I have been before when its always you whom I lastly talk to in the night. I really miss you and I still love you. I'm sorry for all the pains I've caused you. I have always protected you from others but I forgot to protect you from getting hurt from me. I miss you Barney :(

Been a year and a half since I let the best thing that ever happened to me slip through my fingers. At the time I loved this whole album but just couldn't listen to this track because the lyrics may as well have come out of my mouth. Still almost too painful to listen to!

This song i can really say my story, its really sad and can open your eyes about stuff, i've been in love for the first time and i lost that special someone. I want her to be happy even if its not with me.

You could be happy and I won't know | Reviewer: Annonymous | 6/7/10
This songs leaves me breathless...it is so hauntingly painful.
He won't know if she is happy,
He'd like for it not to be too late to remember the them before the final days of a screaming blur.
What he remembers should have made him stop her from walking out.
He can smell her wherever he is and in a tiny moment he forgets when he smells her that it isn't true.
He wants her to be happy and take a huge bite out of the world (be successful).
I would love to sing this to my husband....
Yep | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/2/10
This song can only make me think of that one person. I'll always love them regardless what has happened between us. I want you to be happy, even if it's without me present. This song explains it all. This song is for you.
Woww | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/14/09
In my opinion this song is separated into two parts, the first part is angriness about how the relationship ended and wanting to win her back, the second part is blocking her out from his life to make her happier. But thats my opinion, either way the songs amazing.
This song is sooo true bout my only love! | Reviewer: Sam Molyneux | 10/12/08
This song say's it all for me!!.. I got married on the 21st of October 2006.. The most beautiful wedding a girl could ever wish for!.. but sadly after being married for only a year, my husband walked out the door and has never returned since.
After hearing this song from "Gavin and Stacey".. I went and downloaded it!!.. I have not cried after my husband left, but when I heard this it all came back to me and made me realized,.. you can't hate the person you still love. I wish things could of been different, but like I have always said. "Things happen for a reson".. If I could tell him one thing it would be... "Am sorry" I will always love you x

SmallVille | Reviewer: Bready | 2/28/08
This song was very, very heartfelt. I first heard it in the opening episode of Season Six of smallville (where the one true love of Clark's life, Lana, is about to marry Clark's best friend/worst enemy.) There are no words, not even a single sound, as this song plays. (Here now is that whole opening scene, complete with the song. Please make sure you pause it first and give it time to load before you play it at full volume, to experience its fullest impact.) http://www.metacafe.com/watch/1003780/smallville_promessa/
