Happily Ever After (From Company) Lyrics

happily ever after - stephen sondheim

someone to hold you too close

 

someone to hurt you too deep

 

someone to love you too hard

 

happily ever after

 

someone to need you too much

 

someone to read you too well

 

someone to bleed you of all

 

the things you don't want to tell

 

that's happily ever after

 

ever ever ever after

 

in hell

 

somebody always there

 

sitting in the chair

where you want to sit

always always

 

somebody always there

wanting you to share

just a little bit

always always

 

then see the pretty girls

smiling everywhere

from the ads and the tv sets

 

and why should you sweat

what do you get

 

one day of grateful

 

for six of regret

 

with

someone to hold you too close

 

someone to hurt you too deep

 

someone to bore you to death

 

happily ever after

 

someone you have to know well

 

someone you have to show how

 

someone you have to allow

 

the things you'd never allow

 

that's happily ever after

ever ever ever after

 

til now

 

so quick

get a little car take a little drive

make a little love see a little flick

do a little work take a little walk

watch a little tv

and click

make a little love do a little work

get a little drunk

you've got one little trip seventy years

spread it around

take your pick

buy a little here spend a little there

smoke a little pot for a little kick

waste a little time make a little love

show a little feeling

but why should you try

 

why not sure feel a little lonely

but fly

 

why not fly

 

with

no one to hold you too close

no one to hurt you too deep

no one to love you too hard

happily ever after

 

no one you have to know well

no one you have to show how

no one you have to allow

the things you'd never allow

 

that's happily ever after

 

ever ever ever after

 

for now

 

ever ever ever after

 

ever ever ever ever after

 

ever ever ever after
