[Chorus]
When I’m away from you
I’m happier than ever
Wish I could explain it better
I wish it wasn’t true

[Verse 1]
Give me a day or two to think of something clever
To write myself a letter
To tell me what to do, mm-mm
Do you read my interviews?
Or do you skip my avenue?
When you said you were passin’ through
Was I even on your way?
I knew when I asked you to (When I asked you to)
Be cool about what I was tellin’ you
You’d do the opposite of what you said you’d do (What you said you’d do)
And I’d end up more afraid
Don’t say it isn’t fair
You clearly werеn’t aware that you made me misеrable
So if you really wanna know

[Chorus]
When I’m away from you (When I’m away from you)
I’m happier than ever (Happier than ever)
Wish I could explain it better (Wish I could explain it better)
I wish it wasn’t true, mm-mm

[Verse 2]
You call me again, drunk in your Benz
Drivin’ home under the influence
You scared me to death, but I’m wastin’ my breath
‘Cause you only listen to your fuckin’ friends
I don’t relate to you
I don’t relate to you, no
‘Cause I’d never treat me this shitty
You made me hate this city

[Verse 3]
And I don’t talk shit about you on the internet
Never told anyone anything bad
‘Cause that shit’s embarrassing, you were my everything
And all that you did was make me fuckin’ sad
So don’t waste the time I don’t have
And don’t try to make me feel bad
I could talk about every time that you showed up on time
But I’d have an empty line ’cause you never did
Never paid any mind to my mother or friends
So I shut ’em all out for you ’cause I was a kid

[Outro]
You ruined everything good
Always said you were misunderstood
Made all my moments your own
Just fuckin’ leave me alone“Happier Than Ever” is track 15 off Billie Eilish’s sophomore album “Happier Than Ever” that was first teased in the February 2021 documentary, The World’s a Little Blurry. In a clip from the documentary, Eilish said of the song:the whole song is just more like nothing even specific that they did, you’re just not happy being with them. Can’t even explain it.In a February 2021 interview on Billie’s documentary, The World’s a Little Blurry, the film’s director, RJ Cutler, hinted that the unreleased songs that appeared in the documentary may end up on Billie’s, at the time, upcoming album:…and you see them writing material that perhaps you’ll see on a later album.“Happier Than Ever,” probably the most therapeutic song I’ve ever written or recorded, like ever, ever, ever ‘cause I just screamed my lungs out and could barely talk afterwards, which was very satisfying to me somehow. I had wanted to get those screams out for a very long time and it was very nice to.— Billie Eilish via SpotifyBillie confirmed in an interview with Open House party that “Happier Than Ever” had previously been titled “Away From You.”“How about the whole song is more, like, nothing even specific that they did, you’re just not happy being with them. Can’t even explain it. Like say, like you can’t, I can’t explain it.”– Billie Eilish via the documentary “The World’s a little Blurry”.
