I been long, a long way from here Put on a poncho and played for mosquitoes And drank 'til I was thirsty again We went searchin', through thrift store jungles Found Geronimo's rifle, Marilyn's shampoo And Benny Goodman's corset and pen Well, okay, I made this up I promised you I'd never give up If it makes you happy It can't be that bad If it makes you happy Then why the hell are you so sad?
You get down, real low down You listen to Coltrane, derail your own train Well, who hasn't been there before? I come 'round, around the hard way Bring you comics in bed, scrape the mold off the bread And serve you French toast again Well, okay, I still get stoned I'm not the kind of girl you'd take home If it makes you happy It can't be that bad If it makes you happy Then why the hell are you so sad?
If it makes you happy It can't be that bad If it makes you happy Then why the hell are you so sad? We've been far, far away from here Put on a poncho and played for mosquitoes And everywhere in between Well, okay, we get along So what if right now, everything's wrong? Edit Lyrics.

Add Your Thoughts Sheryl crow if it make you happy lyrics Comments. A lot of things make us happy, but they can be bad for us and knowing that but continuing doing them is what makes us sad. Great song though. No Replies Log in to reply. There was an error.
General Comment To be honest, I'm not a fan of Sheryl's at all. I haven't heard this song either. I read the lyrics in a friends MSN name and was immediately drawn to it. The chorus made me think of drugs, possibly becuase i'm in the middle of an addiction myself. It's biased, but it fits. It brings you so high, and takes you so low, and you do think that how can something so great be so bad?
I think what she says about the french toast again is wishful thinking about the possible good times ahead if the addiction was overcome. Then she says straight up she still get's stoned, and coudln't be brought home. Who's parents would be impressed with a drug addict? Then she goes back to the good memories and states "Well, o. I don't know, to me it just screams addiction. I could be completely wrong though.
I'm looking forward to hearing the song. General Comment This song totally reminds me of this girl I am friends with. She dated this guy who was into bad stuff, but acted differently around his family. He would never bring her around to his home because she was considered bad. He refused to recognize their relationship and just totally used her. She was in love with him and he led her on for a long time. If it makes you happy, it can't be that bad.
The french toast part always reminds me of MY bro. When we were kids I couldn't cook anything else, so he would talk me into making him french toast. General Comment I think this is a defensive reaction to the truth. She used a bunch of people including Kevin Gilbert to get where she got and then dissed them and took all the credit.
When they took exception to being used she was saying She has continued with this shallow behavior behing the Sheryl crow if it make you happy lyrics General Comment this song. Coldplay on December 18, Link. My Interpretation I think this song is about an abusive relationship or an unhappy relationship, and the girl is trying to convince herself and others that she is happy in this unhealthy relationship.
The first two verses before chorus are talking about all the things she made up to tell her friends, all the "stories" she supposedly had to share involving her and her boyfriend, but in reality none of that actually happened. They never really did any of the things she said she did but she was just trying to convince her friends that this was a great relationship and she was genuinely happy.
I think the chorus is her talking to herself or her friends trying to knock sense into her. She's pretty depressed and yet she talks about how great her relationship is, but in reality it is making her feel worse. They are questioning why she is so sad if this relationship makes her so happy. The third verse after chorus is talking about how she is getting really depressed. She is trying to justify it by saying "everyone has been here before, I'll be better soon.
The fourth verse is either talking about how she does everything for this guy and he treats her like crap and doesn't do anything in return, or she has made everything right and then she went back to him again. By this I mean, she scraped the mold off the bread broke up with himagain to try to make things better.
However, she has to keep doing it again and again because she keeps running back to him. Hope that makes sense? She admits that she still does "bad" things like getting stoned and she really isn't the kind of person a guy would want to take home or to show his parents? Confused on that verse a bit. PinkInk on August 15, Link. General Comment This song is a message to her brother. This is a sister talking to her brother, Tryna get him out of his hole, but with the lyrics alone, her song as a message to him for the sole purpose of making him think about his direction in life.
She starts out by comparing her life to his, which all good sisters do. Apparantley Sheryl would say anything to get her bro off the drug, that's why she says "okay I made it up Yeah, Sheryl gets stoned, but she's not on whatever her brother is on and she's making something of her life, and he's not.
Her bro must say something like and all us addicts do "a drug is a drug is a drug.
Then comes the define sentence, "I'm not the kind of girl you'd take home. She also adds all the little things she does for him, it's subtle but it's all symbols;French toast, comics, It's just her way of saying how she cares for him, but there's something she knows about her brother, and it's that If the drug makes you happy, then why does this song make you sad?
That's the ultimate point of the song. She knows this song will get under his skin. She belongs a long way from him because can't handle his drug use, and he may be happy, but is he really? Jaycub86 on July 06, Link.
Jaycub86 Gonna have to edit this, whoops, when Sheryl says not the type of girl you'd bring home, she's saying she couldn't get along with his drug addict girlfriends. Jaycub86 on July 06, General Comment I think this could be about anything self destructive like drugs or an abusive relationship but is probably more about being a reluctant celebrity or married to Lance Armstrong.
In the video she is encased in a diorama as part of an endangered species exhibit at a museum of natural history? Maybe being a celebrity isn't as much fun as it looks. But why endangered species? She basically calls her fans Mosquitos - but I actually think Tom Petty wrote this song about all of that stuff but mostly was in love with Sheryl Crow and wanted her to acknowledge she wasn't happy with Lance and would be better off with him.
