Happiest Year
Jaymes Young Lyrics


I'm really on the ropes this time
I've been fighting all my life for you
I never should have said goodbye
But maybe that's what stupid people do

'Cause you gave me peace
And I wasted it
I'm here to admit
That you were my medicine
Oh, I couldn't quit
And I'm down on my knees again
Asking
For nothing

Thank you for the happiest year of my life
Thank you for the happiest year of my life, ooh

Ooh, ooh, ooh

Don't think I could forgive myself
I'm sorry for the ways that I used you
And I could care less right now
But you know, you hurt me pretty good too

Yeah, we made each other bleed
And we tasted it
I'm here to admit
That you were my medicine
Oh, love, I couldn't quit
And I'm down on my knees again

Thank you for the happiest year of my life, oh
Thank you for the happiest year of my life, ooh

So wake me up when they build that time machine
I want to go back
Wake me up when you were sleeping next to me
'Cause I really loved you, ooh

Thank you for the happiest year of my life
Thank you for the happiest year of my life ohh
Thank you for the happiest year of my life, yeah
Thank you for the happiest year of my life
Thank you for the happiest year of my life

I know that probably no one cares, but I still kind of have the urge to share this... with someone. When I'm listening to this song, I always have to cry. Because it brings back memories and reminds me of very special people...

It was long overdue when I first reached out to a therapist in 2018. I was 17 years old and in a very dark place for at least 4-6 years, which I never talked about to someone until this point.
To shorten it: I would be admitted to a psychiatric ward very quickly, where I got diagnosed with major depression with psychotic features.

After almost a half year I was released and was admitted to a psychiatric rehabilitation clinic next where I got a second diagnose — avoidant personality disorder.
It was far away from home, and I was there for over one and a half year. It is kind of sad, because it is a rehab I was in, but this was one of my happiest year(s) I had.
Why? Because I become friends with my room neighbor. I never had a friend like her!
Also, I had a really close bond with my reference person / mental health counselor (MHC) — For me, she was like a mom...

Now I'm almost a year out of the rehab clinic.
This song just reminds me of the time I was in it. I miss my MHC and my friend who both are living far away. And I miss the time we had together. I had so many good moments there.
Now I realize how I already relapse again.
My mind is mess and I’m in the same stupid dark place I was before...
It is like everything starts all over again...
I guess this probably is the reason I always have to cry, when I hear this song. Because there was this time in the rehab where I felt loved, secure and understood,... Now I'm relapsing again...

This song let me feel the pain that I was keeping for 6months.

He was my best love, for almost 4 years of my life. I’m so grateful to be with him.
We hurt each other a lot and decided to let go.
After 6 months of separation, we realized that we still love each other. We asked for forgiveness to each other.
We want to be together again but things got different now.

“Thank you for the happiest thing of my life”
He made my life so wonderful. I’m so stupid to let him go and push him away.
At the end, we decided not to hold back to each other but to support and wait for the destiny to bring us back again.
Without pain, with forgiveness, with pure love and with trust.

I’ll pray that my happiness will return with that same person.

In the spirit of honesty, I have to admit that "Happiest Year" has always been a deceiving title. That might seem obvious upon listening to the song, but I haven’t been very open about why it's deceiving.

The writing and recording began amidst one of the darkest places of my life, in 2018. I was completely in hell. I was lost in deep loneliness, depression, and a sense of regret that I had never experienced before. Time was standing still, and the world was moving by without me, day after day. It was such a disorientating labyrinth of emotions for me, and I was completely turned inside out over the pain I was dealing with. I wasn’t eating, sleeping, or taking care of myself. I was exhausted in every way, and mentally so foggy. I isolated myself from everyone for months. It probably wasn’t more than 10 days after I started writing and recording the song that I drove myself to the hospital seeking professional help.
"Happiest Year" is really about the first year of a relationship, before things went sour. I had family and close longtime friends visit me during that first year, who later expressed concerns over my state of bliss. I don’t think I really wanted to see it, because I was too happy in the moment to consider the possibility that I was perhaps embracing a fairy tale with an uncertain ending.

So, it’s actually a pretty backhanded thing for me to say “thank you” like I do in the chorus of the song, because really I’m saying “at least you gave me that first year” haha. There’s both spite and gratitude in that phrase.

Now, in the last year I’ve realized the song has meant something much less petty for those who’ve been listening. I feel humbled by, and I started to embrace that idea even on tour last year. When I was singing it, it started to mean something different, something less burdensome, and something less attached to that dark period in 2018 when nothing in my life seemed to be okay.

In the end, I guess it’s a little strange for me to be releasing a music video for "Happiest Year," but I’m glad for it. I’m so pleased to have created a story with the director, my friend Erik Rojas. This is my favorite video I’ve made so far and I hope the message (albeit dark at face value) is received as a lesson in appreciation for what is given to us, no matter what the circumstance. Lessons about life, and happy times in general, are not always packaged neatly in a box that you get to conveniently open and close when you want.

This description is so much closer to what I originally tried to urge the song was about, and I have to thank my community of fans for reminding me of the bigger picture.

I was practically writhing in pain when this song was written, so it’s quite liberating to see some good coming out of it. Somehow it's come full circle in this music video, which I’m now happy to share with everyone. Thanks for all your continued support, and I hope the song and video can be a form of expression that helps people release some negative energy during the world’s current state of anxiety.

I’m really on the ropes this time
I’ve been fighting all my life for you
I never should’ve said goodbye
Maybe that’s what stupid people do

Cuz you gave me peace and I wasted it
I’m here to admit that you were my medicine
Oh I couldn’t quit and I’m down on my knees again
Asking for nothing

Thank you for the happiest year of my life
Thank you for the happiest year of my life

Don’t think I could forgive my self
I’m sorry for the ways that I used you
And I could care less right now but you know you hurt me pretty good too
Yeah we made each other bleed and we tasted it

I’m here to admit that you were my medicine
Oh love I couldn’t quit and I’m down on my knees again

Thank you for the happiest year of my life
Thank you for the happiest year of my life

So wake me up when they build that time machine
I want to go back
Wake me up when you were sleeping next to me
Cuz I really loved you

Thank you for the happiest year of my life
Thank you for the happiest year of my life
Thank you for the happiest year of my life
Yeah
Thank you for the happiest year of my life
Thank you for the happiest year of my life

I just recently sold my best friend,
my heart horse,
my soulmate,

She meant the world to me, and now that she’s gone, this song hits me in my feels, and it hits deep.
I miss her everyday, and I couldn’t imagine never having had her.

To my best friend, my heart horse, my soulmate,
The love of my life,
Thank you for the happiest year of my life.
Im sorry.

Forget the humans. They can take care of them selves. But who ever has a pet. Take care of them in every single second of the remaining days. Make them feel like you're a part of them. Cause if you lose them, you missed big time. I remember I met this random dog in my garden, and my mom gave me a piece of bread. That evening was one of the best moments of my life, we played like we knew each other for years. And I took her and named her sunny. We always played, always had a smile with her. And she met my cat eva. They always fought. Till that night when I left her out of the house like the other normal nights. And I remember staying awake and heard a dog crying I ignored it. Till the next morning when I was looking for her, couldn't find her. Till I went to the road to wait for the school bus. The moment I saw something on the road. My heart just left me. When I saw the body I couldn't do anything. She was gone. I had lost her. My mom covered my eyes. But the pain was hard. I went to school and cried the whole day. My cat eva kept looking for sunny but she was never going to come back and after some time Eva left too,the most beautiful cat I've ever seen, I loved her so much.
My mom brought me an exact dog like sunny called Greta, I never left her out during the night and started sleeping with her even before she had 1 year and my mom never slept with a dog before but when she tried it, we've always fought about who should sleep with her. I remember she always woke me up by licking my face so she could pee.but she died of cancer and left my current dog Lilybeth. Greta was like a mother of lily and they've always hunted, played, kept each other safe. The day I went to put flowers on top of where Greta was kept lily was there trying to dig the ground And that hurt me so much. Now lily is The best thing,animal, friend... I don't want her last day to come. she Takes care of me, even when I'm sick she would jump on the bed and stay with me until she has to go out or eat. Take of them them. Please. I beg you. They deserve the world. They deserve someone. Even if they act like they don't care. They do. Because when you or they will be gone. They'll 10000% ask themselves where you are. So please if you see someone miss treating them, tell them to stop. Please because we don't deserve them.
It all started from a slice of bread.🐕‍🦺❤
