Lee Brice’s second single is leaps better than his first. “Happy Endings” finds a man in Myrtle Beach watching his woman walk out on him. She’s hopping in the car and driving to California. He’s not thinking she’s coming back, but hey, it’s a long drive and maybe she’ll get to missing him. After all, “Happy endings happen all the time.” But his sad, matter-of-fact delivery suggests he’s resigned to the fact that there won’t be one this time.
