“‘Happy Now’ is the most organic sounding song I’ve made in a long time,” says Zedd in an emailed press statement. “The majority of what you hear was recorded using real instrumentation, a lot of pianos and a lot of guitars. Lyrically, it’s a song that is both happy and sad at the same time, while musically, it’s a song that rather leans towards a happier, sunnier side.”

[Chorus: Elley Duhé]
You’re a world away
Somewhere in the crowd
In a foreign place
Are you happy now?
There’s nothing left to say
So I shut my mouth
So won’t you tell me, babe
Are you happy now?

[Verse 1: Elley Duhé]
You’re the only one who can up and run
Leave me just as empty as the day you came
And you hold all the cards, all the broken hearts
Strung over your shoulder till it’s all in vain

[Pre-Chorus: Elley Duhé]
And only you know the strength of your teeth
The wash in the weight of your pockets, so deep
And lonely

 

 

[Chorus: Elley Duhé]
You’re a world away
Somewhere in the crowd
In a foreign place
Are you happy now?
There’s nothing left to say
So I shut my mouth
So won’t you tell me, babe
Are you happy now?
Are you happy now?

[Post-Chorus]
You’re the only one who can

[Verse 2: Elley Duhé]
In the palm of your hands you can make me dance
Spin me around in circles till I’m wrapped in string
You keep on talking sweet till your fingers bleed
But don’t you dare ask me how I’ve been

[Pre-Chorus: Elley Duhé]
Now only you know the strength of your teeth
The wash in the weight of your pockets, so deep
And lonely

[Chorus: Elley Duhé]
You’re a world away
Somewhere in the crowd
In a foreign place
Are you happy now?
There’s nothing left to say
So I shut my mouth
So won’t you tell me, babe
Are you happy now?
Are you happy now?

[Post-Chorus]
You’re the only one who can
You’re the only, you’re the only
You’re the only one who can
You’re the only, you’re the only

[Outro]
World away
Somewhere in the crowd
In a foreign place
Are you happy now?
There’s nothing left to say
So I shut my mouth
So won’t you tell me, babe
Are you happy now?
