Okay, okay - I've got to talk some about weddings. We have one coming in four months. A big white (ivory) wedding. If you didn't think a full formal wedding could be planned in six months - you don't know my resourceful daughter. I think it's all coming together beautifully.
I think what the song is trying to say, to me, is that again a happy ending is a choice. And not just one choice. It's a choice every time you make a decision - in marriage and in life. I believe that in my core! If you see someone happy or unhappy - it usually is a choice. Not always, but many times it is.
"A Happy Ending" by Sugarland - see the YouTube Below.
Cowboys ride into sunsets
The good guy always gets the girl
Cinderella's just fit
The glass slipper that changed her world
We all know the stories
We all know the fairy tales
We all get the glory
Of making it for ourselves
From the beginning
We're all looking for a happy ending
Every dream of winning
Every love we've been in
Right from the beginning
We're looking for a happy ending
We come here with nothing
And take it with us the day we leave
The first and last breath don't matter
It's all the ones that are in between
It's the reason for living
It's the reason the caged bird sings
It's why we sit in the movies
All the way to the closing scene
And for all the dreamers who have come and gone
Who have reached for the stars who have overcome
You're the hope, you're the wish, you're the truth
Baby here's the proof
Baby's born in the ghetto
Baby's born with a silver spoon
One tells his mama, "I'll have a dream."
One tells his mama, "I'll walk the moon."
My wish for you my dear daughter, is that you will choose to have a happy ending. To do that I think you both must work hard and sacrifice. But most of all - don't forget to choose to have some fun. Life doesn't have to be made harder than it is - hard times will come on their own. Slow down and smell the roses.
