Happy Ending Lyrics

by Joe Jackson

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?
Do I look at what I see
Or remember what I read?

When I tell you how I feel
Do I wonder what I've said?
Is there nothing
We can do about it?

Anyone, anyone can be
So hard hearted
But everyone, still everybody
Wants a happy ending

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?
Do I try to feel the same
As I feel when we're apart?

Do I think about the end
When it's only just the start?
Is there nothing
We can do about it?

Anyone, anyone can be
So hard hearted
But everyone, still everybody
Wants a happy ending

I get so scared when I see
The evidence against our case
Each movie so far this year
Ends up with someone crying
Or even someone dying

Do I listen to my head?
Do I listen to my heart?
Do I try to feel the same
As I feel when we're apart?

Do I think about the end
When it's only just the start?
Is there nothing
We can do about it?

Anyone, anyone can be
So hard hearted
But everyone, still everybody
Wants a happy ending
