"If It Makes You Happy"
by Sheryl Crow

I really like this song. Sheryl Crow sounds a little angry/frustrated while singing it, but that's just her bringing across the emotion of the message of the song. She sings of a relationship from its initial stages where you tell tales of what you've done and haven't done. Some of it may be lies, some might not. But what's really true is when you say "I'd never give up" (Hook 1).

Then the relationship gets real. You're tested, you're tried. Your partner gets sad. You get sad. You both get through it. You do everything in your will to please that person even "Bring you comics in bed, scrape the mold off [their] bread. And make them french toast, again". (Verse 2)

-- My favorite part of this song is:
"Well, o.k. 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"

.... It's like, in relationships, no one is perfect. Everyone has their flaws. But even in your flaws, awkwardness and personality traits that would be considered a turn-off to some, the one who loves you the most doesn't seem to mind it much. Yet... there is still some form of unhappiness and it's unclear why.
