Happily Ever After

by Jeff Brown



This is quite possibly the most special song that I've ever written. There's always been something about it that I could never put my finger on. I wrote it for two friends who got married when I couldn't afford to get them anything nice for their wedding.

Since then, I've had the privilege of performing it at weddings all across the country for dear friends, and sometimes complete strangers. It makes me happy.

Jeff Brown Chicago, Illinois

Describing his sound as ‘a singer-songwriter who got a band’, Brown veers from delicate indie-folk to more lively alt-rock, jazz & chamber pop. His songwriting trends towards melancholic and his Facebook page cites his songwriting influences as “Girls and alcohol, mostly,” though in reality, his music is rarely that one-dimensional. Brown writes love songs for people who are sick of love songs. ... more

Track Name: Happily Ever After
I don’t claim to remember just how it began
Maybe you looking at me looking at you (looking at me too)
But when the dust finally settled on this lonely man
It didn’t matter, cause I was with you

Days turned to weeks, and you know how it goes
Cause time carries on as it must
Sometimes you don’t say a word, but still everyone knows
That somehow you and me became us

Well maybe it’s fortune or maybe it’s planned
Or maybe we’ll never quite really understand
But what if our story turns out like the rest
We’ll be happily ever after... I guess.

Well you ain’t no Queen, and I sure ain’t no King
But I would crown you with the moon and the sun
So when the moment was right, I gave you that ring
Cause I knew that you were the one

I said that I loved you, and you said ‘I do’
I swore that I’d spend my whole lifetime with you
And I knew as I saw you walk down in that dress
We’d be happily ever after... I guess.

It seems like so long ago that we were so young
But my, my how the time has flown
We’ve long since retired, our songs have been sung
And our kids all have kids of their own

But you still fall asleep when I kiss you good-night
And whisper ‘I love you’ as I turn out the light
Now I lay awake and wonder just what happens next
We’ll be happily ever after...
We’ll be happily ever after...
We’ll be happily ever after... For sure.
