The Happiest Girl: the lyrics and their meaning

The Happiest Girl is a song about a complicated love relationship. In the lyrics, the protagonist is a girl who can be truly happy in some isolated moments of her relationship, but at the same time, she’s aware that she also feels a lot of pain due to the issues she has with the person she loves.

The chorus is poetic and fascinating. Multiple members of the K-pop girl band sing one after each other, interpreting different feelings and points of view:

But tonight, I’ll be the happiest girl in the world
You’ll see like it doesn’t matter
Tonight, I’ll be the happiest girl in the world
You’ll see like it never happened
I can stop the tears if I want to
I can stop the tears if I want to
I can stop the tears if I want to
But tonight, I’ll be the happiest girl in the world
You’ll see like it never happened

“Tonight” is one of those moments when the girl can feel completely delighted inside that relationship. All the doubts, troubles, and pain mentioned in the rest of the song won’t matter. It will be like all the rest never happened. A voice inside herself remembers the tears she cries in the other moments, but the line “I can stop the tears if I want to” means that she feels stronger and intends not to give up on the bad feelings. At least tonight.

The other moments are different, and they are the focus of the song’s verses. The troubles cause fights, and the issues seem to have no solution.

The doors we slammed, the plates we smashed
Echo with the sound of madness
I can’t remember why we try

In those other moments, the girl is sure that the relationship cannot work. She insists on stopping trying, and she often asks why they are just unable to break up and accept the situation.

Don’t hold my hand, don’t beg me back
Don’t say that we’ll make it through this
If I’m so beautiful, then why?

Don’t make us saints, we’re wards of pain
The past and a perfect picture
There’s no one else to blame this time

From the way she talks with the other half of the relationship, we understand that he’s pushing harder to maintain this relationship. Her feelings are different, though: she feels something is wrong, and apparently, they often blame other factors for the issues. But deep inside herself, she believes that the real truth is that the relationship doesn’t work.

Inside the poetic lyrics of The Happiest Girl, there is a sad meaning: love is complicated, and sometimes it’s normal to feel conflicted about what we experience. It takes courage to recognize the issue and the reason objectively, and that’s why the conflict comes up while expressing the emotions in these lyrics.

My heart only wants you
The moment you say no

Don’t hold my hand, don’t beg me back
Don’t say that we’ll make it through this
If I’m so beautiful, then why?
The doors we slammed, the plates we smashed
Echo with the sound of madness
I can’t remember why we try

My heart only wants you
The moment you say no

But tonight, I’ll be the happiest girl in the world
You’ll see like it doesn’t matter
Tonight, I’ll be the happiest girl in the world
You’ll see like it never happened
I can stop the tears if I want to
I can stop the tears if I want to
I can stop the tears if I want to
But tonight, I’ll be the happiest girl in the world
You’ll see like it never happened

Don’t make us saints, we’re wards of pain
The past and a perfect picture
There’s no one else to blame this time
Don’t change the truth, we can’t undo
The high we chase, steal the crash, no
You’re not the one who gets to cry

My heart only wants you
The moment you say no

But tonight, I’ll be the happiest girl in the world
You’ll see like it doesn’t matter
Tonight, I’ll be the happiest girl in the world
You’ll see like it never happened
I can stop the tears if I want to
I can stop the tears if I want to
I can stop the tears if I want to
But tonight, I’ll be the happiest girl in the world
You’ll see like it never happened

All it takes is a smooth pop of a bottle top
To fix a heart, a broken heart, baby
All it takes is a little rollin’ paper
Take us to the start, go back to the start

But tonight, I’ll be the happiest girl in the world
You’ll see like it doesn’t matter
Tonight, I’ll be the happiest girl in the world
You’ll see like it never happened
I can stop the tears if I want to
I can stop the tears if I want to
I can stop the tears if I want to
But tonight, I’ll be the happiest girl in the world
You’ll see like it never happened
