Happily Ever After lyrics

Happily Ever After

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

But unfortunately, "Happily Ever After" struck Hal Prince as what he called "a downer", and he wanted to end the show on a more positive note. So I took the same idea and rewrote it as a song called "Being Alive" with one major difference that makes the song work really well. Which is that the song is constantly interrupted with little interspersed urgings by the couples to Bobby to get married.
