HAPPY ENDING

Boy: I’m in a movie where boy meets girl
What happens to me in this brave new world

Do I listen to my heart, do I listen to my head?
Girl:Do I look at what I see, or remember what I read?
Boy:When I tell you how I feel, do I wonder what I’ve said?

chorus Is there nothing we can do about it, anyone
Anyone can be so hard hearted
But everyone
Still everbody wants a happy ending

La lalala
La lalala la

Girl: It’s not so easy, it’s ‘84 now
How tough must we be, to ask for more now?

Do I listen to my head, do I listen to my heart?
Boy:Do I try to feel the same as I feel when we’re apart?
Girl:Do I think about the end when it’s only just the start?

chorus Is there nothing we can do about it, anyone
Anyone can be so hard hearted
But everyone
Still everbody wants a happy ending

La lalala
La lalala la

Girl: I get so scared when I see the end but it’s against our case
Boy: Each movie so far this year
Both: Ends up with someone crying
Or even someone dying....

Girl:Do I listen to my head, do I listen to my heart?
Boy:Do I try to feel the same as I feel when we’re apart?
Girl:Do I think about the end when it’s only just the start?

chorus Is there nothing we can do about it, anyone
Anyone can be so hard hearted
But everyone
Still everbody wants a happy ending

La lalala
La lalala
La lalala la....
