Why not put all the doubts behind us?
Now we've got Brooklyn at its finest
Full moon, it doesn't hurt
And perfect fireworks
I hope we both remember this

Because we're happy as we're ever gonna be
Open as we're ever gonna be
Honest as we're ever gonna be
Happy as we're ever gonna be

One hundred years ago they built it
A bridge to see how the other side lived
We come along, years have passed
Walk over it to have a laugh
Oh, we've got the nerve of the very new

And we're happy as we're ever gonna be
Open as we're ever gonna be
Lovely as we're ever gonna be
Happy as we're ever gonna be

Right here, right now, a perfect night
The folks in charge know how to do it right
October comes once a year
And we've got winter here
I hope we both remember this

Because we're happy as we're ever gonna be
Open as we're ever gonna be
Free as we're ever gonna be
Happy as we're ever gonna be

Yes, we're happy as we're ever gonna be
Open as we're ever gonna be
Free as we're ever gonna be
Happy as we're ever gonna be

    General CommentWhat a brilliant happy joyous song. Love the way Lucy's voice and the Indigo girls back up singing blend. Lucy certainly lives up to her pedigree. Really really like this song. Seems like it just describes a perfect evening plain and simple. Love the line "We've got the nerve of the very new."
