Matt has a vision for leaving his provincial town.
View Lyrics
Beyond that road lies a shining world.
Beyond that road lies despair.
Beyond that road lies a world that's gleaming. People who are scheming.
Beauty! Hunger! Glory! Sorrow! Never a pain or care. He's liable to find a couple of surprises there.

There's a song he must sing; It's a well-known song. But the tune is bitter And it doesn't take long to learn!

I can learn! That pretty little world that beams so bright. That pretty little world that seems delightful Can burn! Burn! Burn! Let me learn! Let me learn!

For, I can see it! Shining somewhere! Bright lights somewhere invite me to come there And learn! And I'm ready!

I can hear it! Sirens singing! Inside my ear I hear them all singing Come learn!

Who knows, maybe All the visions I can see May be waiting just for me To say take me there, and

Make me see it! Make me feel it! I know it's so I know that it really May be! Let me learn!

I can see it! (He can see it!) Shining somewhere! (Shining somewhere!)

Those lights not only glitter But once there they burn!

I can hear it! (He can hear it!) Sirens singing! (Sirens singings!)

Don't listen close Or maybe you'll never Return!

Who know, maybe All the visions that I (he) sees May be waiting just for me (him) to Say

I can see it! Say Shining somewhere! Say Let me see it! Say Take me there And make me a part of it!

Make me see Those shining sights inside of me! (Make him see it!)

Make me feel Those lights inside Don't lie to me! (Make him feel it!)

I (he) know(s) it's so -- I (he) know(s) that it really may be!

Just what I always waited for! This is what my life's created for!

Let me (him) learn!

Charlie Brown arduously tries to get his kite to fly.
View Lyrics
Little more speed, little more rope, Little more wind, little more hope, Gotta get this stupid kite to fly. Gotta make sure it doesn't snag Doesn't droop, doesn't drag Gotta watch out for ev'ry little- whoops!
Little less speed, little more tack, Little less rise, little more slack, Gotta keep my wits about me now. Gotta make sure it doesn't get the best of me Till I get it in the air somehow.
Millions of little kids do it ev'ry day They make a kite and-"poof"- it's in the sky. Leave it to me to have the one fool kite Who likes to see a little kid cry.
Little less talk, little more skill, Little less luck, little more will, Gotta face this fella eye to eye. Now that I've seen you chasing moles, Climbing trees, digging holes, Catching your string on everything passing by Why not fly?
Wait a minute, What's it doing? It isn't on the ground. It isn't in a tree. It's in the air!
Look at at that. It's caught the breeze now, It's past the trees now With room to spare...
Oh- What a beautiful sight. And I'm not such a clumsy guy. If I really try I can really Fly a ki-

Randall reveals to Campbell his past as an outcast, and wants her to embrace her life journey.
View Lyrics
RANDALL I'm a stud now, its clear. So it'll shock you to hear That I was a total dork My freshman year --

CAMPBELL You?

RANDALL Right? I was a loser, a mess, A loner, depressed That every day I had to be me Walked around hoping no one Would see me

I'd lock myself in the guys room And let the tears fall, Til one day this custodian Knocked on my stall And asked if I'd heard Of the band: The Grateful Dead -- And I thought he might not be Quite right in the head...

But he changed my life around When he said "Right now everything seems so important. But time rushes by at a clip And when you look back, These high school years Will be nothing more than a blip So you might as well -- enjoy the trip."

CAMPBELL But its such a long blip!

RANDALL Thats what i said! and he said:

"Trust me on this, when you're older And wiser and balder and fatter And you look back on this Moment in time The only things thats gonna Matter is Did you only do what you Thought you should do? Did you dance monkey dance Cause the man told you to? Or did you spend your time doing What brings joy to you?

"All you see is this old dude With a broom in his hand. But I've followed my dreams And my favorite band."

So don't sit on your ass Waiting for life to begin If you do what you love With your time, then you win! What a long, strange, Wonderful trip it's been!

Right now everything seems So important But time rushes by at a clip And when you look back, These high school years Will be nothing more than a blip Just a tale to tell!

RANDALL & CAMPBELL That rings a bell So what the hell! We might as well enjoy the trip!

After hearing Ariel's voice from her rescuing him, Eric sets out to find her.
View Lyrics
Where did she go? Where can she be? When will she come again Calling to me? Calling to me... Calling to me...

Somewhere there's a girl Who's like the shimmer of the wind upon the water somewhere there's a girl Who's like the glimmer of the sunlight on the sea Somewhere there's a girl Who's like a swell of endless music Somewhere she is singing And her song is meant for me

And her voice It's sweet as angels sighing And her voice It's warm as summer sky And that sound It haunts my dreams And spins me 'round Until it seems I'm flying... Her voice!

I can sense her laughter In the ripple of the waves against the shoreline I can see her smiling In the moonlight as it settles on the sand I can feel her waiting Just beyond the pale horizon Singing out a melody too lovely to withstand

And her voice It's there as dusk is falling And her voice It's there as dawn steals by Pure and bright, it's always near All day, all night And still I hear it calling... Her voice

Strange as a dream... Real as the sea... If you can hear me now Come set me free... Come set me free!

Danny, a university junior, proposes to his pregnant girlfriend Lizzie.
View Lyrics
As I leave my single life behind Thoughts are kind of spinning in my mind
First I think about you Then I think about me loving you Then I think about you and me
Deciding we could be one
It's crazy I know,
I wrestled with my pillow all last night And I look at you
And I know I chose right
Life's a very long road And the crossroads come up
Right away And it's so hard to know which way to go
When you've barely begun
And Oh, the road you leave behind
Can shine so bright And I look at you
And I know I chose right
Now maybe we don't mean that much
You and I And maybe our balloon will never fly And maybe no one cares if we let things go by And maybe doesn't matter if we live or die
But if I'm making promises to you today I wanna know I'll keep them all the way So if I've not been good at meaning what I say It's time now to try
So I think about you
And I think about me loving you Then I think of my friends who'll say they're in love
When they're just havin' fun
But I say no no no
If I am gonna love its with all my might And I will be true,
I will follow this through
And I look at you And I know I chose right

View Lyrics
You are never away
From your home in my heart; There is never a day
When you don't play a part
In a word that I say,
Or a sight that I see. You are never away And I'll never be free.

You're the smile on my face, Or a song that I sing; You're a rainbow I chase On a morning in Spring; You're a star in the lace Of a wild willow tree, In the green leafy lace Of a wild willow tree.

But tonight you're no star, Nor a song that I sing. In my arms where you are, You are sweeter than Spring;

In my arms where you are Clinging closely to me, You are lovelier by far, Than I dreamed you could be. You are lovelier, my darling Than I dreamed You could be!

Henry Jekyll's menacing alter ego, Edward Hyde, starts to manifest.
View Lyrics
HYDE What is this feeling Of power and drive I've never known? I feel alive!

Where does this feeling Of power derive, Making me know Why I'm alive?

Like the night, it's a secret, Sinister dark and unknown. I do not know what I seek, Yet I'll seek it alone!

I have a thirst That I cannot deprive. Never have I felt so alive!

There is no battle I couldn't survive - Feeling like this - Feeling alive!

Like the moon, an enigma, Lost and alone in the night Damned by some heavenly stigma, But blazing with light!

It's the feeling of being alive! Filled with evil, but truly alive! It's the truth that cannot be denied! It's the feeling of being Edward Hyde!

View Lyrics
What Do I Say? What Do I Do? How Will I Ever Hope To Fare?
How Can I Stay So Close To You Knowing Now That Your Place Is In Another's Embraces, In Another Man's Care?
I Should Be Gone Far From This Hell Till Not A Trace Of You Survives
Yet I'll Stay On For I Know Well Though You've Left Me Behind You One Day Troubles Will Find You And When That Day Arrives
I'll Be There For To Me There's No Sorrow Worse To Bear Than A Life Lived Apart.
I'll Be There Come The Mists On The Morrow I'll Be There By Your Side And Deep Within Your Heart
Now she's his wife And nobody knows How much of her she'll have to hide.
But Whatever Life He Might Propose Will Be Merely Pretending To The Dream Never-Ending We'll Now Hold Inside
I'll Be There Though I Know That It's Madness, Heart Laid Bare, Stripped Of Pride, Yet Still Proud.
I'll Be There In The Depths Of My Sadness I'll Be There Ever Steeled Unyielding And Unbowed.
Go And Marry A Man You Don't Love If That Pleases You. Throw Away, For A Cause, All The Joys We Have Known
I Thought Love's More Than Faith, More Than Clans, More Than Anything Let His Kiss Keep You Warm I'll Be Fine On My Own...
Is It Me I'm Deceiving? Mad Or Not, I'll Stay True. I'll Be There... I'll Be There, Heaven Speed Me, By Your Side, As You Need Me I'll Be There For You.

We plow the fields and scatter the good seed on the land.. But it is fed and watered by God's almighty hand.. He sends us snow in winter, the warmth to swell the grain... The breezes and the sunshine, and soft refreshing rain...

All good gifts around us Are sent from Heaven above So thank the Lord, oh thank the Lord for all his love...

We thank thee then, O Father, for all things bright and good, The seedtime and the harvest, our life, our health, our food, No gifts have we to offer for all thy love imparts But that which thou desirest, our humble thankful hearts!

All good gifts around us Are sent from Heaven above.. So thank the Lord, oh thank the Lord for all his love..

I really wanna thank you Lord!

Hot Sunday night, I guess the folks were busy fighting Joe'd already left home, eleven years old on my own feeling nothing but lonely

Disneyland, Magic Kingdom Disneyland, I close my eyes real tight Wishing hard I might, wishing hard I may Find my way to Disneyland, Gotta get to Disneyland, on a western breeze Magic carpet please, carry me away

I know you're gonna say the trees are paper mache It's done with mirrors, the magic there Each little birds full of springs, you press a button it sings Recorded music in the air They've had the mountain refaced it's only plywood and paste Go on say it! I'll turn around and tell you I don't care I don't... care

I will live in Disneyland Make my home in Disneyland Maybe it's all fake, That's a chance I'll take It's perfectly ok Someone give me Disneyland Take me there! To Disneyland And when I get to Disneyland I'll stay

Context & Lyrics


Leona, a secretary, arrives in Venice and is amazed by what the city has to offer.
View Lyrics
LEONA Someone woke up one incredible day, Had an idea and was prompted to say: "Let's build a city... where should it be? How about the middle of that sea?" Someone drew plans like a set for a stage, Someone spilled colors all over the page, Then they built it -- Cookie, you know why? Just so Leona could come here and cry.

Some people cry at hellos and farewells, Some people cry at nostalgia with bells, Some cry at weddings, some at the moon, I cry promptly Mondays at high noon. Some people cry at Vienna or Rome, This one is mine, Cookie, this one is home. Look, they even painted the damn sky Just so Leona could come here and cry.

Let's build a city... where should it be? How about the middle of that sea?

Some people cry when they see their old pals, Me, I'm a sucker for chimes and canals. Look, they even painted the damn sky Just so Leona could come here And stand like a lump Dripping wet with no shoes on At noon on a Monday And cry.

Catherine shares her feelings for her estranged lover.
View Lyrics
Hard to tell you how I feel Everything is so unreal Lord, this life is a hard thing to get to

Saw my shadow on the wall Saw my love nowhere at all Saw my life as a hard thing to get through

When you're born, they carry you When you're gone, they bury you In between, you're on your own Hard to stand there All alone

Someone crying down the hall Dying cries, they tell it all Lord, this life is a hard thing to live And harder, still, To leave

Charity recognizes the value in Barnum's point of view on life.
View Lyrics
(Spoken)
It’s your own fault Charity Barnum.
If you'd only asked a few logical questions before you married him, You would have put a healthy distance between yourself and a fella Who wants to give the whole world a paint job. Which I’m not so sure it needs...
(Sung) The colors of my life Are softer than a breeze. The silver gray of eiderdown, The dappled green of trees. The amber of a wheat field, The hazel of a seed, The crystal of a raindrop, Are all I'll ever need. Your reds are much too bold, In gold I find no worth.
I'll fill my days with sage and brown The colors of the earth, And if from by my side My love should roam, The colors of my life Will shine a quiet light To lead him home.

Julia fantasizes and plots to win back Proteus.
View Lyrics
Because he loves her He despises me Because I love him I pity him

If I could be her Just for a moment When he was holding her I would insult him Then he’d be unhappy And not know where to run

I could turn back into me And I would comfort him What a nice idea What a sweet idea But easier said than done.

Wait!

If I could be him Just for a moment I’d hold her so close And yell insults at her She’d never speak to him again

I could turn back into me And I would comfort him It ends up the same Either way

All I want to do Is have someone scold him Then I’d come on the scene And gladly hold him That’s my idea of fun

Que bonita idea Que idea mas linda Que idea mas dulce Que idea ams rica What a lovely idea What a lovely idea But easier said than done But easier said than done.

A woman is blasting her unfaithful lover.
View Lyrics
There he goes as usual, my man Breaking my foolish heart I really don't know what to do about him I've told myself I've got to do without him

There he goes as usual, my man Tearing my heart apart He's made my life a mess I've got to do this I guess

Goodbye Joe, from here I kiss you Goodbye Joe, I hope I don't miss you

If you had been on the square And had treated me fair And we?d not had a tiff If you had not said I should go and jump right off The nearest cliff

If you had stayed off the make And you never had taken To coming home stiff If I had not smelled perfume With a nasty unfamiliar whiff

I'm gonna miss you, baby Things could've been teriff Ah, what's the diff?

If you had not had the cheek To stay out for a week Saying, "Back in a jiff" If you were not such a two-timing guy

If you weren't If you hadn't If you didn't

If you weren't If you hadn't If you didn't

But you have And you were And you went And you did And so goodbye

If I had not seen you Take Geraldine on the lake In your flat-bottomed skiff If you were not out with Sue With your arms around her bare midriff

If I had not seen you pen sexy letters To Gwen in your own hieroglyph If you had not left me home When had two seats for South Pacif

I'm gonna miss you, baby You were too darn prolif Ah, what's the diff?

If you were not such a hound Who when game was around Always picked up the sniff If you were not such a two-timing guy

If you weren't If you hadn't If you didn't

If you weren't If you hadn't If you didn't

But you were And you have And you went And you did And so, goodbye

If when I asked where you'd been You had not cliffed my chin With a beautiful biff Hey, if I had not always found purple Lipstick on your handkerchief

If you had not told me lies And then looked in my eyes With a smile beautif If when I caught you with Kate You had not said, ?It?s of no signif?

I'm gonna miss you, baby And I could get specif Ah, what's the diff?

If the best years of my life Weren't spent as your wife With no marriage certif If you were not such a two-timing guy

If you weren't If you hadn't

If you didn't If you weren't If you hadn't If you didn't

But you had And you were And you have And you went And you did

And so goodbye!

Christine convinces Mary that her love for Del knows no boundaries
View Lyrics
Our kind of love, our kind of passion Burns with a heat so hard to bear It's not a game, no fad or fashion Our kind of love's for those who dare

I must be strong, I must be bolder Cling to my dream and never tire Each love denied leaves people colder New love rekindles every fire

I shan't betray my heart's desire Even though we come From different sides We won't hide

I am in love, no one can blame me Such is my story and my fate My kind of love will never shame me My love is stronger than their hate My love is stronger than their hate

I shall cling to him with all my might It's my right

All kinds of love bring us together Causing the broken hearts to mend People must love now and forever There's only one love in the end There's only one love in the end

I'm goan' to learn to read and write, I'm goan' to see what there is to see, So if you go from nowhere On the road to somewhere And you meet anyone You know it's me.

You'll see me carried shoulder high, By famous people I've never met, But till I leave the rear, It's from the rear you'll hear, "I ain't down yet." To show that you know, You got to show you know you know!

I'm goan' to move From place to place To find a house With a goldn stair And if that house is red And has a big brass bed I'm liiiivin' there.

You'll see me carried shoulder high, By famous people I've never met, But till I leave the rear, It's from the rear you'll hear, "I ain't down yet."

Now, even now Once more from earth to sky Peels forth in joy Man's old undaunted cry Earth shall be fair And all her people one
GIBBON C'mere Jesus, I got something to show ya!

Yet thou, her child Whose head is crowned with flames Still will not hear Thine inner God proclaims
Turn back, oh man Turn back, oh man Turn back, oh man Forswear thy foolish ways!

Sharon explains her father's theory behind following dreams.
View Lyrics
On the day I was born, said my father, said he, I've an elegant legacy waiting for ye. Tis a rhyme for your lips and a song for your heart, To sing whenever the world falls apart.

Look, look, look to the rainbow. Follow it over the hill and stream. Look, look, look to the rainbow. Follow the fellow who follows a dream. Follow the fellow, follow the fellow, Follow the fellow who follows a dream.

'Twas a sumptuous gift bequeathed to a child. Oh, the lure of that song Kept her feet running wild. For you never grow old and you never stand still With a whippoorwill singing beyond the next hill.

So, I bundled me heart and I roamed the world free. To the east with the lark Tow the west with the sea. And I searched all the world and I scanned all the skies. But I found it at last in my own true love's eyes.

I hear a bird, Londonderry bird, It well may be he's bringing me a cheering word. I hear a breeze, a River Shanon breeze, It well may be it's followed me across the seas. Then tell me please

How are things in Glocca Morra? Is that little brook still leaping there? Does it still run down to Donny cove? Through Killybegs, Kilkerry and Kildare?

How are things in Glocca Morra? Is that willow tree still weeping there? Does that lassie with the twinklin' eye Come smilin' by and does she walk away,

Sad and dreamy there not to see me there? So I ask each weepin' willow and each brook along the way, And each lass that comes a-sighin' too ra lay How are things in Glocca Morra this fine day?

Dolores Dante is a waitress who boasts the joys of her job.
View Lyrics
There's some as don't care When they put down a plate There's a sound Not with me When they move a chair It'll scrape with a grate On the ground Not with me
I will have my hand right when I place a glass Notice how I stand right as customers pass Serve a demi-tass with a gesture so gentile Or do it again 'til It's near oriental
Da da da da dum dum
It's an art it's an art To be a fine waitress To see that you pleasure each guest There's a twist to my wrist If I let a fork drop Or cut up a porkchop Or serve a New York chop It all needs be stylish and smart That's what makes it an art
I remember one day As I do now and then I had shakes And down I went There with my tray Full of seven prime tenderloin steaks And down I went
But I kept my poise - not one guest heard me fall Never made a noise - not one noise food and all If you have to crawl you give 'em what they like You carry your tray like It's almost ballet-like
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la
It's an art, it's an art To be a fine waitress Each evening I treasure the test Though my chef may be deaf I stay diplomatic If I give him static He might burn the haddock Or put too much salt in a tart Even that is an art
Tips? HA! Tips are important For people like captains and barmen For them it's a tips, see? For me, I'm a gypsy Just toss me a coin And I suddenly feel like I'm Carmen
So on through the ulcer The backache, the hot, sweaty feet On you go Through, "Is your knife dull, sir?" And, "Madam wants what with her meat?" On you go
Two AM approaches, the curtains descend There among the roaches my act's at an end Every night I tend to find myself crying There's no work so trying Or so satisfying
I tell everybody that I'm a waitress and I'm proud. Somebody comes up to me and says, "Hey you're terrific. How come you're just a waitress?" Ya know what I say to them? I say, "Why? Don't you think you deserve to be served by me?"
It's an art
GUESTS Miss!
WAITRESS It's an art
GUESTS Miss!
WAITRESS To be a great waitress
GUESTS Please take care of this
WAITRESS To do without leisure or rest
GUESTS Could we have our check please?
WAITRESS So I zoom
GUESTS Miss!
WAITRESS Through the room
GUESTS Miss!
WAITRESS With a flair no one else has
GUESTS Bring some more of these
WAITRESS An air no one else has I swear no one else has My lilt
GUESTS Miss!
WAITRESS When I say
GUESTS Miss!
WAITRESS "A la carte"
GUESTS And another order to go
WAITRESS You can see it gives me a glow
GUESTS My plate, miss! My cup, miss!
WAITRESS Ev'ry time I prove I'm a pro
GUESTS I'm late, miss! Hurry up, miss!
WAITRESS Maybe I'm not quite
GUESTS Miss!
WAITRESS Michelangelo
GUESTS And a bag for my dog
WAITRESS But I'm not just a waitress
GUESTS You were great
WAITRESS I'm a one
GUESTS But I'm late
WAITRESS Woman
GUESTS My check please My change please
WAITRESS Show
GUESTS C'mon please Lady, let's go

Context & Lyrics


Sarah Crewe vents her frustration about her caretaker Miss Minchin.
View Lyrics
I don’t want to go along with the crowd Don’t want to live life under a cloud Give me some air and space And sun on my face I want to live out loud

Don’t want to be alone in the crowd Don’t want to seem peculiar and proud I need to be as free As I know how to be I want to live out loud

Every day – sleep, walk, lock, step No one dares to stray Though they may – straightlaced, shamefaced Long to break away They’re as lonely as can be Is that what they want from me?

I don’t want to go along with the crowd Don’t want to live life under a cloud Give me some air and space And sun on my face I want to live out loud

Don’t want to be alone in the crowd Don’t want to seem peculiar and proud Nobody wants me here But I won’t be disappear I want to live out loud

I want to run down an open shoreline I want to join in a moonlit dance I want to swing from the branches of a tree I wanna bathe in a hidden inlet And let the breeze come and dry my hair I want the life they took away from me

If they makes me headstrong – fine! That’s a fault I’m glad is mine.

I don’t want to go along with the crowd Don’t want my spirit broken and bowed Why do I have to hide what I’m feeling inside I want to live out loud

Don’t want to be alone in the crowd I only want what I’m not allowed Give me the wings of a bird I’ll be seen and be heard

I want to sing when my heart is full I want to sing and I want to fly I want to soar the sky without a cloud I want to live out loud.

Queenie tells Mr. Black that she has become used to Burr's brutish behavior.
View Lyrics
QUEENIE I know it's wrong I know he's rough I don't know what to do But we've been through enough I know it's time And yet I play Maybe I like it this way.

I see his pain I hear his cry He pulls me to the edge But I don't ask him why I understand And I obey Maybe I like it this way.

I like the way he laughs His strange and silent stare I like the way he moves The way he's always there The way he calls my name The way he takes control I like the way this man has stirred my soul:

"When I first met Burrs, he was grand. You understand? But I was scared and awfully lonely. Hungry. And hopeful. How could I know?"

Maybe tomorrow it comes crashing down Maybe next week I'll find another clown Maybe I'll try to go a different way But look who's sitting here today.

If I could change If I could grow I'd ask for nothing more And through that door I'd go But if I'm through Why do I stay?

Maybe he wants me Maybe he needs me Maybe he loves me Maybe I like it this way.

The peasant girl Ti Moune prays to the gods, anxious to know her purpose.
View Lyrics
TI MOUNE A stranger in white In a car Going somewhere Going far… How it must feel to go racing Wherever you please Flying as free as a bird With his tail in the breeze Even the fish in the sea Must be longing to fly Catching a glimpse of a stranger In white racing by

Oh, Gods. Oh, Gods Are you there? What can I do to get you to look down And give in? Oh, Gods. Oh, Gods Hear my prayer I’m here in the field With my feet on the ground And my fate in the air Waiting for life to begin

PEASANTS Ooh la ooh la ooh la ooh la Ooh la ooh la ooh la ooh la

TI MOUNE Mama’s contented and Tonton Accepts what he gets

PEASANTS Ooh la ooh la ooh la ooh la

TI MOUNE Happy for tea in their cups And no holes in their nets

PEASANTS Ooh la ooh la ooh la ooh la

TIMOUNE Happy to have what they have And to stay where they are

PEASANTS Ooh la ooh la ooh la ooh la

TI MOUNE They never even look up At the sound of a car!

A stranger! Racing down the beach Racing to places I was meant to reach My stranger One day you’ll arrive The car will stop And in I’ll hop And off we’ll drive…We’ll drive!

Oh, gods Oh, gods Please, be there Don’t you remember Your little Ti Moune from the tree Wake up! Look down! Hear my prayer Don’t single me out And then forget me…

Oh gods, oh gods Let me fly

PEASANTS Oh oh oh

TIMOUNE Send me to places No one before me has been

PEASANTS Ooh la ooh la ooh la

TI MOUNE You spared my life Show me why

PEASANTS Oh oh oh

TI MOUNE You get me to rise Like a fish to the bait And tell me to wait Well, I’m waiting…

PEASANTS Waiting

TI MOUNE Waiting for Life to Begin!

MEN One small Girl

Taken from a song cycle that centers around loss of loved ones from 9/11.
View Lyrics
Any time you laugh Any time you cry Any time you hear a sound When you`re on the grass Lying on the ground Any time you wash your hands I`ll be around

I`ll be there on the baseball field Though I`m well concealed I`ll be out there cheering I`ll be there in the books you read It is guaranteed I`m not disappearing fast Any time No not any time

And I am there each morning I am there each fall I am present without warning And I`m watching it all Yes I`m watching it all Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh And I am there in music I am there in sky I don`t why this thing did happen But this much is clear Any time or anywhere I am there

Any time you pray Any time you fight Any time you`ve gained a pound Any time it`s day Any time it`s night Any time the earth moves I`ll be around

I`ll be there in the maple trees I`m a summer breeze On a perfect evening I`ll be there when you celebrate When the world seems great I`ll be waiting by your side Any time Yes! Any time

And I am there each morning I am there each fall I present without warning And I`m watching it all Yes I`m watching it all Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

And I am there in flowers I am there in snow I don`t know why this thing happened But this much is clear Any time you cry Any time you sing For anything I`ll be there Each morning I`ll be there each fall I don`t why this thing happened But this much is clear

Be aware I am there I am there I am there I am there

I am there I am there I am there

Julia, a waitress, sings about how she can't wait to get married.
View Lyrics
(Spoken) JULIA Did you see the bride? She looks so perfect.

HOLLY I know. Don’t you hate her?

JULIA Hate her? She’s so happy!

(Sung) She turns around And she meets his gaze The lights are dim, There’s a smoky haze They share a smile And a secret wave It’s a moment built to save They start to move Across the floor The room is frozen, Wanting more The happy couple on display With nothing standing In their way It’s so romantic I could die Right here and now It’s gonna be that way for us I know somehow Someday when it’s me I’ll know our love Was meant to be Not one single complication Or cause for hesitation Someday when the dream Is coming true All you’ll need is me And all I’ll need is you

(Spoken) HOLLY Julia, take that veil off!

JULIA Okay!

(Sung) They stop and pose For a photograph He jokes around Just to make her laugh The room is full, But they’re all alone They have a language All their own And I’m so jealous I could cry And yet I know It won’t be long Before you say We’re good to go Someday when it’s me I’ll know our love Was meant to be Not one single complication Or cause for hesitation Someday when the dream Is coming true All you’ll need is me And all I’ll need is you I know not every marriage Lasts when things go bad I’ve seen the warning signs I call them “Mom” and “Dad” But soon you’ll take my hand And pledge your love to me Till then I’ll just get married vicariously

JULIA & WOMEN Someday when it’s me I’ll know our love Was meant to be

JULIA Not one single complication Or cause for hesitation Someday when the dream Is coming true

WOMEN Is coming true

JULIA All you’ll need is me

WOMEN All you’ll need is me

JULIA & WOMEN And all I’ll need is you!

Mina, who is strangely attracted to Count Dracula, begs for him not to coax her into romance unless he truly loves her.
View Lyrics
There only so much That a heart can take Before it starts to break

Please don’t make me love you Please don’t make me need you I’ve no room in my life For something like this

Please don’t take my mornings Please don’t steal my summers I know they will vanish The moment we kiss

I grow weak when we talk I’m confused when we touch I should just walk away But that’s asking too much

Please don’t make me do this Please don’t make me want this All my drams were taken Until i met you

You’re the one I think of Soon as I awaken Funny how the heart tells The mind what to do

I’m not sure I can go through all The joy and the pain Much better now To let these dreams take flight!

Please don’t make me love you Please don’t make me need you Simplify my life By just setting me free

Promise me you’ll do this Only you can do this Please don’t make me love you Unless you love me

SWALLOW If all we lost somehow came back If all that died again would grow If only it was so, these are the loneliest words I know If all our dreams were golden and never black or grey If all our dreams came true, then we'd never have to say If only it was so, these are the loneliest words I know
THE MAN If all we'd lost somehow came back If all that died again would grow If only it were so, these are the loneliest words I know The stage lowers to reveal Candy and Amos on the highway.

Paula, an ex-dancer whose boyfriend has just left her, refuses to be taken advantage of again.
View Lyrics
PAULA
My built-in female radar only zeroes-in on zeroes I'm like the actors' fund supporting wanna be Deniros

I've been caught in a trap But it's not gonna happen again

No more Racing toward a heartache Seeking disappointment Chasing after dreams I've trusted more than enough to last me till I die Love's as unreliable as it seems

No more Living for another Craving his approval Giving to extremes I'm through collecting broken promises I've heard them all before I know more now

In my experience with men I've spent a lifetime proving You know a man is lying when you see his lips start moving My women's intuition ought to be recalled Or overhauled

Most men have backbones like a strand of overcooked Linguini You say commitment and they instantly become Houdini When I look back upon the men I've loved I'm thoroughly Appalled

I'm gonna build a wall around my heart A towering fortress made of solid rock Electric fences all around my heart The next guy who hits on me Is in for a shock

I know to let go now And so I solemnly promise

No more!

Seeking disappointments Chasing after dreams With just the two of us now We're better off by far You and I are one of the greatest teams

No more Living for a lover Craving his approval Giving to extremes They say that history repeats itself I'll build my past goodbye No more No more I know more now!

Cal, a magician's assistant, realizes that her career and love life are not working out, so she considers reluctantly returning to West End Avenue.
View Lyrics
All of your life you wake up to the taxis and the chimes To the bathroom with the roaches and the breakfast with the Times. And you subway to school with kids whose folks all live in twenty blocks In a high-rise rented carton or a co-op brownstone box, with double locks.

West End Avenue. Babies in carts and poodles barking, West End Avenue. Planning the day around the parking.

You tell yourself, "I will be free." West End Avenue, You won't get me.

All of your life you watch the shrinks and lawyers on parade, Watch the brokers in their worsted and the ad men in their suede. While upstairs a soprano tries to sing the waltz from "La Boheme." And you watch 'em and you listen and you judge and you condemn: You're not like them.

West End Avenue. Delis and laundromats and gay bars, West End Avenue. Only a block away from Zabars.

But you were meant to really fly. West End Avenue, Good bye, good bye.

And then suddenly you're out there on your own. But you forgot that free could also mean alone. And when all that freedom gets too much for you, Ooh, what do you do?

You pack up your boots and blue jeans and your records and your pride, And you tell yourself you ventured and you tell yourself you tried. And it's back to the surly doormen and the canopies you go. And the buses seem to chuckle and the towers seem to crow: "We told you so."

West End Avenue, Find me a golden cage to perch in. West End Avenue, Open your arms to one more urchin Who's crawlin' back to mama's den. West End Avenue, You win again!

PAM
I said I'd fill my life with you.
One look and what else could I do.
That smile that lights your face washed into every secret space
And made me see a better me inside of me.
And when a gift like that comes through
I have to thank my stars forever.
And so I'll stay with you and fill each day with you
And always know that I'd complete
In every way with you.
NICK
I said I'd fill my life with you.
One look and what else could I do.
It only took one touch and somehow
You unlocked so much
And made me see a stronger me inside of me
And when a gift like that comes through
I have to thank the stars forever.

I'm a lady when you kiss me, I'm a child when you are leaving, I'm a woman ev'ry time our bodies meet complete.
Long lost feelings stir inside me, used to think nights were for sleeping, being wanted is a thrill I never knew till you.
Now I'm alive, inside I'm glowing, I'm how I want to be, loving you I can be me, just me.
It's the first time when you touch me, now I long for rainy mornings, I am certain you're the last man in my life. I'm a woman ev'ry time our bodies meet complete.
Long lost feelings stir inside me, used to think nights were for sleeping, being wanted is a thrill I never knew till you.
Now I'm alive, inside I'm glowing, I'm how I want to be, loving you I can be me, just me.
It's the first time when you touch me, now I long for rainy mornings, tell each other to find all we're looking for and more.
Found the rainbow I was after, no more dreams with one face missing, I am certain you're the last man in my life.

Context & Lyrics


Rose, an actress, begs for her lover Alex not to leave her.
View Lyrics
Anything but lonely, Anything but empty rooms. There's so much in life to share -- What's the sense when no one else is there?

Anything but lonely, Anything but only me. Quiet years in too much space: That's the thing that's hard to face, And ...

You have a right to go, But you should also know That I won't be alone for long. Long days with nothing said Are not what lie ahead -- I'm sorry, but I'm not that strong.

Anything but lonely, Anything but passing time. Lonely's what I'll never be, While there's still some life in me, And ...

I'm still young, don't forget, It isn't over yet -- So many hearts for me to thrill. If you're not here to say How good I look each day, I'll have to find someone who will.

Anything but lonely, Anything but empty rooms. There's so much in life to share -- What's the sense when no one else is there ...?

What's the sense when no one else is there ...?

Context & Lyrics


Matt has a vision for leaving his provincial town.
View Lyrics
Beyond that road lies a shining world.
Beyond that road lies despair.
Beyond that road lies a world that's gleaming. People who are scheming.
Beauty! Hunger! Glory! Sorrow! Never a pain or care. He's liable to find a couple of surprises there.

There's a song he must sing; It's a well-known song. But the tune is bitter And it doesn't take long to learn!

I can learn! That pretty little world that beams so bright. That pretty little world that seems delightful Can burn! Burn! Burn! Let me learn! Let me learn!

For, I can see it! Shining somewhere! Bright lights somewhere invite me to come there And learn! And I'm ready!

I can hear it! Sirens singing! Inside my ear I hear them all singing Come learn!

Who knows, maybe All the visions I can see May be waiting just for me To say take me there, and

Make me see it! Make me feel it! I know it's so I know that it really May be! Let me learn!

I can see it! (He can see it!) Shining somewhere! (Shining somewhere!)

Those lights not only glitter But once there they burn!

I can hear it! (He can hear it!) Sirens singing! (Sirens singings!)

Don't listen close Or maybe you'll never Return!

Who know, maybe All the visions that I (he) sees May be waiting just for me (him) to Say

I can see it! Say Shining somewhere! Say Let me see it! Say Take me there And make me a part of it!

Make me see Those shining sights inside of me! (Make him see it!)

Make me feel Those lights inside Don't lie to me! (Make him feel it!)

I (he) know(s) it's so -- I (he) know(s) that it really may be!

Just what I always waited for! This is what my life's created for!

Let me (him) learn!
