Diana Ross (The Supremes) - The happening
Tekst: Eddie Holland / Muziek: Lamont Dozier en Brian Holland
(1967)






Hey life, look at me
I can see the reality
’Cause when you shook me, took me out of my world
I woke up
Suddenly I just woke up to
The happening



When you find that you left the future behind
’Cause when you got a tender love, you don’t take care of
Then you better beware of
The happening



One day you’re up
One day you’re up
When you turn around
When you turn around
You find your world
You find your world
Is tumbling down
Is tumbling down
It happened to me and it can happen to you



I was sure, I felt secure
Until love took a detour, yeah
Riding high on the top of the world it happened
Suddenly it just happened
I saw my dreams torn apart
When love walked away from my heart
And when you lose a precious love you need to guide you
Something happens inside you
The happening



Now I see life
Now I see life
For what it is
For what it is
It’s not a dream
It’s not a dream
It’s not a bliss
It’s not a bliss
It happened to me and it can happen to you once
Ohoh, and then it happened
Ohoh, and then it happened
Ohoh, and then it happened
Ohoh, and then it happened



Is it real
Is it fake
Is this game of life a mistake
’Cause when I lost the love, I thought was mine for certain
Suddenly it starts hurting
I saw the light too late
When that fickle finger of fate
Yeah, it came and broke my pretty balloon
I woke up
Suddenly I just woke up
The happening



So sure, I felt secure
Until love took a detour
’Cause when you got a tender love, you don’t take care of
Then you better beware of
The happening
