"Happy Everafter in Your Eyes" as written by and Ben Harper....
The morning sunrise spread her wings
While the moon hung in the sky
Held the sea in your hands
And happy ever after in your eyes

Couldn't leave you to go to heaven
I carry you in my smile
For the first time my true reflection I see
Happy ever after in your eyes

Every star in the night
Promises the dawn
I will be there if you fall
To ever so heavily rest upon

All that I can give you
Is forever yours to keep
Wake up every day with a dream
And happy ever after in your eyes

Happy ever after is in your eyes

    General CommentThis is so beautiful, especially now that I know the story behind the song.

    It's not about the love of a girlfriend, rather the love for a child.

    Ben Harper wrote this song for Heath Ledger's daughter, Matilda. Heath called Ben and told him he was having a girl and wanted him to write a song for him, Ben obliged and here is the answer.

    Now that Heath is dead, this song is going to mean so much to Matilda.

    Well done Ben Harper.

    Through this song Heath lives on. x
