You Could Be Happy
Snow Patrol Lyrics


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

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 wish I had not said,
All played in loops till it's madness, in my head.
Is it too late to remind you, how we were?
And not our last days of silent, screaming blur.
And 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.
And somehow everything I own, smells like 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.

These (not in any specific order) are others off the top of my head.  (Some may be cliché, but cliché isn't bad.  They're reminders of a simpler time/happier time or even the beautifully painful and pure feeling of heartbreak.
1. Big Jet Plane - Angus &Julia Stone
2. Say Something - A great big beautiful world
3. Falling Slowly - once
4. One thousand Years - Christina Perri
5. 9 crimes - Damien Rice
6. Adam's Song - Blink 182 (simpler times/struggles with a once young depression)
7. Hopeless place - Rhianna (cheesy, but beautiful when you find peace within urself after a painful breakup)
8. Fix You - coldplay
(Other bands who are known to have  music in the nostalgic category - The xx, the American rejects (before they got too poppy), etc etc.. once u start searching, you'll dig deeper and deeper into older and more indie songs that have been around forever but are underrated)  These are just from the top of my head.  Just my opinion, through my own personal experiences with a certain significant person or two in my past.

This song makes me feel all the feels.  I shouldn't listen to it---BUT IT'S SO GOOD, I CAN'T STOP.  Worth it.

I remember in 2016, this song playing in my AirPods. Drunk at a bar in DC. Crying, depressed, and stressed out. I texted my ex “I need to see you” she said “come now” so I sprinted to her house in DuPont Circle from Georgetown with this song playing at 2 AM on a Tuesday night while running in my suit and tie from work earlier in the day. Now we are married with 2 kids.
