Liner Notes: 

After a long day at work, I wanted to at least do 1 skirmish tonight before I go to sleep.

Lyrics: 

Hope That You Are Happy
(c) 2019 Deanna Sweidel

You live a life so filled with lies
While my heart sits here and cries

And

When you look into her eyes
While I stare into grey skies

I hope that you are happy
I hope that you are happy
I hope that you are happy now

You live your life in compromise
While in my head I analyze

How you

Love through sin’s disguise
While my soul it slowly dies

I hope that you are happy
I hope that you are happy
I hope that you are happy now

I remember all the highs
And just how quickly time it flies
Turning into love’s demise
You really had me mesmerized

So while you live a life of lies
Staring into another’s eyes
Remember my heart still cries
While I stare into those dark grey skies

And

I hope that you are happy
I hope that you are happy
I hope that you are happy now

There are good measures of justified anger and bitterness I perceive in these lyrics... I can see this being sung by one of the great country singers in a torch-ballad style. Quality writing as usual-- good sense of meter and rhyme.

Nice job of depicting the internal struggle. Does the narrator really hope the other is happy? Or is he/she trying to convince himself/herself? We'll never know and that's the bit of human nature you captured well here.

Excellent! filled with great rhymes and that chorus really delivers, especially the last line. Well done!

Blimey, so rhymey! It's so scathing, it burns. The meter is really strong, this is a brilliant set of lyrics for musication.

I love the whole setup of these lyrics, with the great payoff of the sarcastic “I hope that you are happy now!”, to finish it off with a great dose of vitriol!

Awesome!
