That's What's Gonna Happen Lyrics

2006 Off-Broadway
I Love You Because the Musical - That's What's Gonna Happen Lyrics


JEFF
The two of us, we’ll start off caring
All about this life we’re sharing
You and I
We’ll be high
Upon the fumes of luh-uh-ove
You’ll laugh at my jokes
We’ll be as sweet as two cherry cokes
And that’s, that’s what’s gonna happen

DIANA
Sounds wounderful

JEFF
Then I’ll take you out to dinner
All the while my wallets thinner
And I’ll yell
Where the hell
Did all my money go-oh-oh
But I’ll put off everything
So I can save for a three-karat ring
And that’s, that’s what’s gonna happen

DIANA
I don’t care about stuff like that…

JEFF
And I’ll be sure
That’s what I’m for
Cause you bring me a joy
I can’t buy or sell
But one night you’ll ask
“Do you still love me?
Cause sometimes I can’t quite tell!”

DIANA
And how do you know?

JEFF
So then I’m caught in this quandary
Cause I touched your dirty laundry
But that stuff
Is not enough
For you to know I care-air-air
Inside I’ll blow like a bomb
But outside, outside I’ll stay calm
And that’s, that’s what’s gonna happen

DIANA
Well, maybe if you opened up more…

AUSTEN AND MALE
But then one fateful day

JEFF
Thanks guys [?]

AUSTEN AND MALE
He’ll try to walk away

JEFF
That’s right

AUSTEN AND MALE
Despite

JEFF
My best givings

MALE
Second thoughts

JEFF
And fear-

JEFF, AUSTEN, MALE
Ear-ears

AUSTEN AND MALE
Then he’ll claim

JEFF
It’s me not you

MALE
Though we all know that that’s not true

(Diana giggles)

JEFF
Then you’ll look at me and burst into tears
To your

JEFF, AUSTEN, MALE
Surprise

JEFF
I’ll stop and listen
Cause no guy
Wants to make a girl cry

MALE [?]
Boo-

AUSTEN [?]
Hoo

JEFF
But then you’ll cry every day
I’ll pretend it’s a phase
And then I'll freak out and end it

MALE
Aw

JEFF
Sadly that’s how this all ends
You will go and tell all your friends

JEFF, AUSTEN, MALE
I must be gay

JEFF
To

JEFF, AUSTEN, MALE
Walk away

JEFF
From a perfect girl like you
Now your friends all hate me too
But I just did what all men do

AUSTEN AND MALE
That’s true

JEFF
And that’s, that’s what’s gonna happen

MALE
It’ll fuck everything up.

JEFF
Now I’m broke and feel betrayed

AUSTEN AND MALE
And he’s not even getting laid

JEFF
That sucks
And that’s, that’s what’s gonna happen

AUSTEN [?]
Come on Jeff. Bring us home.

JEFF
I know our relationship’s illusive
But, it is better than being exclusive

JEFF, AUSTEN, MALE
And that’s, that’s what’s gonna happen
Gonna happen, yeah
