Ever After
‘Into The Woods’ 2022 Broadway Cast Lyrics

And it came to pass, all that seemed wrong was now right
The kingdoms were filled with joy
And those who deserved to were certain to live a long and happy life

Ever after (ever after)

Journey over, all is mended
And it's not just for today
But tomorrow, and extended
Ever after (ever after)

All the curses have been ended
The reverses wiped away
All is tenderness and laughter
For forever after

Happy now and happy hence
And happy ever after

There were dangers (we were frightened)
And confusions (but we hid it)
And the paths would often swerve (we did not)
There were constant (it's amazing)
Disillusions (that we did it)
But they never lost their nerve (not a lot)
And they reached the right conclusions
And they got what they deserve

Not a sigh and not a sorrow
Tenderness and laughter
Joy today and bliss tomorrow
And forever after

I was greedy
I was vain
I was haughty
I was smug
We were happy
It was fun
But we were blind
Then we went into the woods
To get our wish
And now we're really blind

I was perfect
I had everything but beauty
I had power
And a daughter like a flower
In a tower
Then I went into the woods
To get my wish
And now I'm ordinary
Lost my power, and my flower (we're unworthy)

We're (I'm) unhappy now, unhappy hence
As well as ever after
Had we used our common sense
Been worthy of our discontents

To be happy, and forever
You must see your wish come true

Don't be careful, don't be clever
When you see your wish, pursue
It's a dangerous endeavor
But the only thing to do

Though it's fearful
Though it's deep, though it's dark
And though you may lose the path
Though you may encounter wolves
Though it's deep, though it's dark (you mustn't stop)
And though you may lose the path (you mustn't swerve)
You mustn't ponder
Though it's deep, though it's dark (you have to act)
When you know your wish
If you want your wish
You can have your wish
But you can't just wish
No, to get your wish

You go into the woods
Where nothing's clear
Where witches, ghosts
And wolves appear
Into the woods
And through the fear
You have to take the journey

Into the woods
And down the dell
In vain perhaps
But who can tell?

Into the woods to lift the spell
Into the woods to lose the longing
Into the woods to have the child
To wed the Prince
To get the money
To save the house
To kill the wolf
To find the father
To conquer the kingdom
To have, to wed
To get, to save
To kill, to keep
To go to the festival

Into the woods
Into the woods
Into the woods
Then out of the woods

To be continued
And happy ever after
