About Think How It’s Gonna Be
“Think How It’s Gonna Be” is from the 1970 Broadway musical Applause, which starred Lauren Bacall. The show was intended to be based on the film All About Eve, but the studio refused to grant the rights. However, they did purchase the rights to the short story that the film was based on.

Lyrics

Dry your pretty eyes, come on
And let me have a smile
Think how its gonna be
When we’re together again

I don’t wanna go
But planes come back, you know
Think how its gonna be
When we’re together again

Oh, we’ll take a long, long walk
Oh, we’ll make some quiet talk
Then just when the fire’s low
Honey, you know
Where we’ll go

So flash that famous smile
The one that gets ‘em all
Think how its gonna be
No one but you and me
Think how its gonna be
When we’re together again
