Who can I turn to When nobody needs me My heart wants to know And so I must go Where destiny leads me
With no star to guide me And no one beside me I'll go on my way And after the day That darkness will hide me
And maybe tomorrow I'll find what I'm after I'll throw off my sorrow Beg, steal, or borrow My share of laughter
With you I could learn to With you on a new day But who can I turn to If you turn away
With no star to guide me And no one beside me I'll go on my way And after the day That darkness will hide me
And maybe tomorrow I'll find what I'm after I'll throw off my sorrow Beg, steal, or borrow My share of laughter
With you I could learn to With you on a new day But who can I turn to If you turn away
And maybe tomorrow I'll find what I'm after I'll throw off my sorrow Beg, steal, or borrow My share of laughter
With you I could learn to With you on a new day But who can I turn to If you turn away

MICHAEL AND JONATHAN Is this real life? Why do we seek out ecstasy In all the wrong places? Why is it hard to see That heaven can have simpler faces?

MICHAEL AND SUSAN Awake next to you Love's so still Can you feel it? What more do you want?

Pontius Pilate retells a dream in which he will be entirely blamed for Jesus Christ’s crucifixion.
View Lyrics
PILATE I dreamed I met a Galilean; A most amazing man. He had that look you very rarely find: The haunting, hunted kind.
I asked him to say what had happened, How it all began. I asked again, he never said a word. As if he hadn't heard.
And next, the room was full of wild and angry men. They seemed to hate this man. They fell on him, and then They disappeared again.
Then I saw thousands of millions Crying for this man. And then I heard them mentioning my name, And leaving me the blame.

Stine experiences the collapse of his real and fictional worlds.
View Lyrics
Funny, How'd I fail to see this little bed time tale was funny? I could cry to think of all the irony i've missed! What an unusual twist Right at the end of it

Funny, Who could see that this pathetic scene would be So funny Once you strain to find the grain of humor Underneath Life double crosses with style Forcing you into a smile So it can kick you in the teeth

Just desserts We can all laugh till it hurts At my expense I'm accustomed to working on "spec" I always pick up the check

I think it's funny Who could top or make this comic op'ra more Compelling You could weave in some deceit to even up the Score

You'd have us all on the floor That would be roaringly funny Sad enough my life's a joke that suffers in the telling Just another hoary chestnut from the bottom drawer I've heard so often before That I can't laugh anymore

Thomas Andrews, designer of the Titanic, believes it to be humanity's next great accomplishment.
View Lyrics
In every age mankind attempts To fabricate great works At once magnificent And impossible...
On desert sands, from mountains of stone A pyramid! From flying buttresses alone A wall of light! A chapel ceiling Screaming one man's ecstasy! One man's ecstasy...
Miracles them all! China's endless wall... Stonehenge, the Parthenon, the Duomo The aqueducts of Rome
We did not attempt to make With mammoth blocks of stone A giant pyramid. No, not a pyramid...
Nor gothic walls that radiate with light... Our task was to dream upon And then create A floating city! Floating city...
A human metropolis... A complete civilization! Sleek! And fast!
At once a poem And the perfection Of physical engineering... At once a poem And the perfection Of physical engineering.

Kerchak has just exiled Tarzan from the gorilla clan.
View Lyrics
KERCHAK My worst fear I hold it now I always knew that this would happen Though he's a child its in his blood And he will grow So now its clear what I must do I know too well what he'll become For as long as I draw breath I'll remember

KALA (spoken) Wheres Tarzan? Where is he?

KERCHAK No turning back Whats done is done I have seen what they can do He can't be saved by you, by me It's too late

KALA (spoken) No, I wont let you do this. How can you think-

KERCHAK No more fighting. I'll be obeyed I'll stand my ground Don't dare defy me I know his kind I know the truth I will protect us

No other way Open your eyes It's there to see No other way He's not one of us And never will be

KALA (spoken) Just listen to me

KERCHAK No more to say He is what he is And that won't change There's no other way I am leaving him here And here he'll stay

KALA (spoken) Hes just a child

KERCHAK He was up in the trees Making a weapon And in time it is us He will hurt

KALA (spoken) No

KERCHAK Nothing and no one Will stop him becoming What he is And was by blood

No other way He won't come between me And those I love Believe me when I say With my body and soul This I vow

KALA (spoken) But I need him!

KERCHAK No, no other way And in spite of your pain It will be done

No matter what you say He never was or could be Be my son There is no other way

I won't let him near the rest of the tribe again

KALA I understand

KERCHAK Where are you going?

KALA To find him We'll live away from the family

KERCHAK For how long?

KALA For as long as he needs me

KERCHAK You can't. I wont be able to protect you Kala don't do this. Please.

KALA Kerchak I'm his mother

KERCHAK No other way I should have done this before Long ago And from today Though they'll think of me cruel They won't know There was no other way.

ARCHIBALD Now I see you in the window Of a carraige, then a train. Still my mind will not accept that In your grave you must remain. I hear your voice then turn and See a stranger's form and face. Must I wander on tormented Place to place to place to place!

Where can I go that you won't find me? Why can't I find a place to hide? Why do you want to chase me, haunt me? Every step there, beside me.

Where in the world, tell me, where in the world Can I live without your love? Where on the earth, tell me where on the earth Should I stay now that you are gone?

Why did I have to meet you, love you? Why can't I rid you from my mind? Why did you have to want me? Won't you let me put my life behind me?

How in the world, tell me how in the world Can I live without your love? Why on the earth, tell me, why on the earth Should I stay now that you are gone? Now that you are...

(spoken) Lily, is that you?

Percy, disguised as the Scarlet Pimpernel, convinces his friends to join him in rescuing people from the guillotine.
View Lyrics
David walked into the valley With a stone clutched in his hand He was only a boy But he knew someone must take a stand

There will always be a valley Always mountains one must scale There will always be perilous waters Which someone must sail

Into valleys, into waters Into jungles, into hell Let us ride, let us ride home again with a story to tell Into darkness, into danger Into storms that rip the night Don't give in, don't give up But give thanks for the glorious fight

You can tremble, you can fear it But keep your fighting spirit alive boys Let the shiver of it sting you Fling into battle, spring to your feet boys Never hold back your step for a moment Never doubt that your courage will grow Hold your head even higher and into the fire we go

Are there mountains that surround us? Are there walls that block the way? Knock 'em down, strip 'em back boys And forward and into the fray

Into terror, into valour Charge ahead, no, never turn Yes, it's into the fire we fly And the devil will burn

Someone has to face the valley Rush in, we have to rally and win boys When the world is saying not to By God, you know you've got to march on, boys Never hold back your step for a moment Never doubt that your courage will grow Hold your head ever higher and into the fire we go

Let the lightning strike Let the flash of it shock you Choke your fears away Pull as tight as a wire Let the fever strike Let the force of it rock you We will have our day, sailing into the fire

Land Ho!

Someone has to face the valley Rush in! We have to rally and win boys When the world is saying not to By God, you know you've got to march on, boys Never hold back your step for a moment Look alive! Oh, your courage will grow Yes, it's higher and higher and into the fire we go Into fire! Onward, ho!

Martin Guerre leaves his family to start a new life.
View Lyrics
They say they follow the Lord's will Still their torture, still they'd kill To make a young man reach his prime
They say he's cursed, he's Satan's child I'm just a boy, betrayed, defiled For a young man needs his time Damn them all While they run with the pack They will pay For the scars on my back

They want my blood They're ready to feed They don't even know The man that they bleed As if a man Can love on demand Accept his life Is already planned

There is no demon inside Just a man full of pride For my hopes haven't died Look...

Look, I'm Martin Guerre Too young to love But still above The lie they live Yes! I'm Martin Guerre A man who knows How evil grows And can't forgive

Soon they will see A man can choose to be free They all look for someone to blame But I swear it aloud, I will be proud that Martin Guerre is my name

First I trusted Pierre I was sold at the shrine Then I trusted the priest Now my blood runs like wine And then there was Bertrande It seems all love must turn to dust There must be someone I can trust

Look, I'm Martin Guerre Father I'm brave And from your grave You'll keep me strong Yes. I'm Martin Guerre For they will learn When I return That I belong

Soon you will see That I can choose to be free They all look for someone to blame But I swear it aloud, I will be proud I'm Martin Guerre They all look for someone to blame But I swear it aloud, I will be proud that Martin Guerre is my name

Archibald reads a bedtime story to Colin.
View Lyrics
Now let's see, Colin, when we left off last night The hideous dragon had carried the maid to his cave by moonlight He gnashed his teeth and breathed his fire The earth quaked and we trembled in fear.

I said someone must save this sweet raven haired maiden Though surely the cost will be steep So we lads all drew lots, our insides tied in knots And I won and the rest went to sleep

So I picked up my staff And I followed the trail of his smoke to the mouth of the cave And I bid him come out, yea forsooth, I did shout Ye fool dragon be gone or behave

And then under my breath I uttered a charm, said To make the worst fiend become kind Knaves and knights of dire plights now diminish his sights And it worked and the dragon went blind

And he charged off the cliff Howling mad and he died And the maiden accepted my ring And then you came along And were brave, bold and strong And in thanks every night now I sing

Race you to the top of the morning Come sit on my shoulders and ride Run and hide, I'll come and find you Climb hills to remind you I love you, my boy at my side

Now another foul dragon's appeared, I must leave you He's scorching our land with his breath From his lair, this one taunts me he dares me, he haunts me Once again, we must fight to the death

Would to God I could stay and instead slay your dragon This beast who sits hunched on your back Would God I could wrench him away from your bed Or cut off or tear off his terrible head Or breathe out my fire on him 'til he was dead Or beg him to spare you and take me instead

As it is, I must leave you in care of my brother The wizard who lives on the hill Who has promised his art will soon pierce through the heart Of this dragon that's keeping you ill

And I know that your mother, God bless her Would want you to do as he says and grow strong And you know that as soon as I can I'll return So be brave son and know that I long

To race you to the top of the morning Come sit on my shoulders and ride Run and hide, I'll come and find you Climb hills to remind you, I love you I love you, my boy at my side!

Judas criticizes Jesus and his followers for their radical beliefs.
View Lyrics
JUDAS My mind is clearer now. At last all too well I can see where we all soon will be. If you strip away The myth from the man, You will see where we all soon will be.
Jesus!
You've started to believe The things they say of you. You really do believe This talk of God is true.
And all the good you've done Will soon get swept away. You've begun to matter more Than the things you say.
Listen Jesus I don't like what I see. All I ask is that you listen to me. And remember, I've been your right hand man all along. You have set them all on fire. They think they've found the new Messiah. And they'll hurt you when they find they're wrong.
I remember when this whole thing began. No talk of God then, we called you a man. And believe me, my admiration for you hasn't died. But every word you say today Gets twisted 'round some other way. And they'll hurt you if they think you've lied.
Nazareth, your famous son
Should have stayed a great unknown Like his father carving wood
He'd have made good. Tables, chairs, and oaken chests
Would have suited Jesus best. He'd have caused nobody harm;
No one alarm.
Listen, Jesus, do you care for your race? Don't you see we must keep in our place? We are occupied; have you forgotten how put down we are?
I am frightened by the crowd. For we are getting much too loud. And they'll crush us if we go too far. If we go too far....
Listen, Jesus, to the warning I give. Please remember that I want us to live. But it's sad to see our chances weakening with every hour. All your followers are blind. Too much heaven on their minds. It was beautiful, but now it's sour. Yes it's all gone sour.
Listen, Jesus, to the warning I give. Please remember that I want us to live. C'mon, c'mon He won't listen to me ... C'mon, c'mon He won't listen to me ...

Floyd reflects on his life as he is about to die in a cave.
View Lyrics
Is it warm, is it soft against your face? Do you feel the kind of grace inside the breeze? Will there be trees, is there light? Does it hover on the ground? Does it shine from all around or just from you?

Is it endless and empty and you wander on your own? Slowly forget about the folks that you've known Or does rising bread fill up the air From open kitchens everywhere Familiar faces far as you can see, like a family

Do we live, is it like a little town? Do we get to look back down at who we love? Are we above, are we everywhere, are we anywhere at all? Do we hear a trumpet call us and we're by your side?

Will I want, will I wish For all the things that I should have done? Longing to finish what I only just begun

Or has a shining truth been waiting there For all the questions everywhere In a world of wondering, suddenly you know And you will always know

Will my mama be there waiting for me? Smiling like the ways she does And holding out her arms As she calls my name She will hold me just the same

Only Heaven knows how glory goes What each of us was meant to be In the starlight, that is what we are I can see so far

Burrs refuses Kate's advances, and professes dark feelings for Queenie.
View Lyrics
BURRS What is it about her That makes me want her? What is it about her That turns me pale? Something in her smile Something that I'll never understand Her wild abandon.

BURRS & QUEENIE What is it about her I know it's wrong That parts the waters? I know he's rough What is it about her That hoists the sail? I don't know what to do But we've been through enough

BURRS Something in her hair Instructing where to touch Why do I need her so much?

This woman makes me cry This woman makes me burn This woman's eye can cut me to the core

The hatred that I see Has been reserved for me Yet I want more And more And more

BURRS & QUEENIE And what is it about her Oooh... That pulls me closer? That way he's always there What is it about her That tips the scale? His strange and silent stare.

BURRS This girl is all I have So soft so fair, so fine And she's forever mine.

This woman builds me up This woman tears me down This woman speaks and I can break apart

Now comes another man Pretending he can win her heart Well, let him start.

What is it about her So slight, so secret? Something in the way she catches light

BURRS & QUEENIE Who's wrong? Who's right? I've never known. Should I hold my own Now - Or be alone We fall Tonight? We fight.

What is it about her What is it about him? That jumbles feelings inside? So coarse, so queer What is it about her What is it about him... That mixes passion with pride? That holds me here?

BURRS Could I live without her And let her go? How loud must I scream No!

John Jasper introduces himself and his inner disturbed feelings.
View Lyrics
Another trifling day,
One more soul-stifling day
Of blinding pain: Boredom grinds my brain
Down to the grain.
A man could go quite mad
And not be all that bad. Consider each superb,
Disturbing urge you've ever had To curse aloud in church
Or choke each bloke who Throws a smile your way... Be that as it may.
A man could have bad dreams
And not be all he seems. Yet not be far-removed
From all the noblest of extremes. Sometimes I think that sanity
Is just a passing fad. A man could go quite mad.
Unblessed are the dull.
One ceaseless, peaceless lull. Some wondrous night, Storm-struck thund'rous light Will cast me right
A sculptor lacking arms,
A sorc'ror lacking charms, A fiend who frightens no one
For there's no one that he harms. Whose clutches clutch
At only desp'rate respite From this dim tableau!
Knowing this is so,
I hide myself in thought Where one cannot be caught And feed on dreams that contradicts each Edict I've been taught And if someday I lose my way and mind, You'll find me glad - A man could go quite,
Man could go quite, Man could go quite mad!

A civilian is doubtful of the existence of God.
View Lyrics
Shining in the eyes of every child, And in the flame of dawn reflecting on the open sea. In every fury and every love, You are awaiting me.

But what about the child who cannot breathe, Or the gentle sage who won't see the age of thirty-two? I am awaiting, I am awaiting you.

Light it all and burn it to the ground! Go ahead and let your thunder sound! Let me watch my loves and my teachers slowly fade away. I'll just have to wait another day.

Maybe in God we trust just a lucky charm, Maybe faith is only hoping that we can rise anew. And so I rise and so I stand. I am awaiting you, oh, I will still be standing here awaiting you.

Light it all and burn it to the ground! Go ahead and let your thunder sound! Let me watch my loves and my teachers slowly fade away. I'll just have to wait another day.

And so I rise and so I stand. I am awaiting, I am awaiting you. Awaiting you, oh, I will still be standing here awaiting you.

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!

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

Agnes questions her place in life now that her children are independent.
View Lyrics

This is very strange. Everything is changing. Suddenly a door Can slam.

This is very strange. Suddenly we're strangers. And I start to wonder Who I am.

What is a woman? What is she made of? Why is a woman afraid of Not being in love?

What is a woman? What does she long for? Why is it wrong for a woman To be all alone?

Young girls are April With rainbows and changes. One day they grow up And April is over forever

To be a woman Means being lonely. That's why a woman is only Alive when in love.

Young girls are April With rainbows and changes. One day they grow up And April is over forever.

To be a woman Means being lonely. That's why a woman Is only alive When in love.

Goodbye my love. God bless you. And I suppose, Bless America, too.
You have places to discover, Oceans to conquer, You need to know I'll be there at the window While you go on your way. I accept that.
But, what of the people Who stay where they're out, Planted like flowers with roots underfoot.
I know some of those people Have hearts that would rather Go Journeying On the sea.
Tell me, What of the people Whose boudaries chafe, Who marry so bravely And end up so safe.
Tell me how to be someone Whose heart can explore While still staying here.
Let this be the year We both travel... Goodbye, my love Journey on.

Fosca fantasizes about Giorgio writing a letter to her.
View Lyrics
GIORGIO (spoken) Fosca, it will be light soon, I should be going

FOSCA (spoken) Would you do me a great favor before you leave? Would you write a letter for me?

GIORGIO (spoken) Certainly

FOSCA (spoken) My dearest Fosca... (Giorgio stops writing and looks at her, annoyed.) Please (Giorgio resumes writing.)

GIORGIO (spoken) "My dearest Fosca"

FOSCA I wish I could forget you Erase you from my mind But ever since I met you I find, I cannot leave the thought of you behind That doesn't mean I love you...

GIORGIO That doesn't mean I love you...

FOSCA I wish that I could love you...

I know that I've upset you I know I've been unkind I wanted you to vanish from sight But now I see you in a different light And though I cannot love you I wish that I could love you

For now I'm seeing love Like none I've ever known A love as pure as breath, as permanent as death Implacable as stone A love that, like a knife, has cut into a life I wanted left alone A love I may regret But one I can't forget

I don't know how I let you So far inside my mind But there you are and there you will stay How could I ever wish you away? I see now I was blind And should you die tomorrow Another thing I see: Your love will live in me

(spoken) I remain... Your Giorgio

After Neville threatens to send Mary to boarding school, the chambermaid Martha encourages her to persevere.
View Lyrics
I think you were just what our Colin needed. What you've got to do is finish What you have begun! I don't know just how But it's not over till you've won.

When you see the storm is coming See the lightning part the skies It's too late to run There's terror in your eyes What you do then is remember This old thing you heard me say "It's the storm, not you That's bound to blow away"

Hold on Hold on to someone standing by Hold on Don't even ask how long or why? Child, hold on to what you know is true Hold on till you get through Child, oh child Hold on

When you feel your heart is poundin' Fear a devil's at your door There's no place to hide You're frozen to the floor What you do then is you force yourself To wake up, and just say "It's this dream, not me That's bound to go away"

Hold on Hold on, the night will soon be by Hold on Until there's nothing left to try Child, hold on, there's angels on their way Hold on and hear them say "Child, oh child!"

And it doesn't even matter If the danger and the doom Come from up above or down below Or just come flying at you from across the room

When you see a man who's raging And he's jealous and he fears That you've walked through walls He's hid behind for years What you do then Is you tell yourself to wait it out And say "It's this day, not me That's bound to go away"

Child, oh hold on It's this day, not you That's bound to go away

When Mame discovers that her nephew Patrick has married a debutante from a bigoted family, she wonders what went wrong.
View Lyrics
MAME Where is that boy with the bugle? My little love was always my big romance; Where's that boy with the bugle? And why did I ever buy him those damn long pants?
Did he need a stronger hand? Did he need a lighter touch? Was I soft or was I tough? Did I give enough? Did I give too much?
At the moment when he needed me, Did I ever turn away? Would I be there when he called, If he walked into my life today.
Were his days a little dull? Were his nights a little wild? Did I overstate my plan? Did I stress the man? And forget the child. And there must have been a million things. That my heart forgot to say. Would I think of one or two, If he walked into my life today.
Should I blame the times I pampered him, Or blame the times I bossed him; What a shame! I never really found the boy, Before I lost him.
Were the years a little fast? Was his world a little free? Was there too much of a crowd? All too lush and loud and not enough for me. Though I'll ask myself my whole life long, What went wrong along the way; Would I make the same mistakes If he walked into my life today? If that boy with the bugle, If he walked into my life today.

Josh's mother becomes more aware of how fast Billy and the other kids have grown.
View Lyrics
MRS. BASKIN Two months old, he looks up at you How his smile melts your heart You want to say, "Stop, time" Don't move on Even as you watch that look is gone
Then he's two, such a little man So alive and so smart Again you say, "Stop, time" Stay just this way But the future comes and he can't stay
Nobody warns you of this parent's paradox You want your kid to change and grow But when he does, another child you've just begun to know Leaves forever
Birthdays fly - 7, 8, 9, 10 Every kid he becomes you clutch and say "Stop, time" Hold this one fast But it's not supposed to last And that time has come and passed For he's growing And he has to go
If I had only stopped the clock four weeks ago Somehow had frozen time right there He'd still be here, I'd see his face I'd hold him in my arms Safe forever It can't be that he's reached thirteen
Now the real changes start But he's not here "Stop, time" Don't rush life so Bring him back And then I'll let him go

The Countess Aurelia hopes for Julian, a young business executive, to make a move on Nina, a waitress.
View Lyrics
Before you half remember what her smile was like, Before you half recall the day you found her, Kiss her now, while she's young, Kiss her now, while she's yours, Kiss her now, while she needs your arms around her.
For if you let a moment come between you now, It soon becomes a day, a year, a lifetime, Blink your eye, turn your head, and you've lost her. And you'll spend half your life wond'ring how. So before you forget how you loved her,
Kiss her now, Kiss her now, Kiss her now.

Before you half remember what her smile was like, Before you half recall the day you found her, Kiss her now, while she's young, Kiss her now, while she's yours, Kiss her now, while she needs your arms around her.

For if you let a moment come between you now, It soon becomes a day, a year, a lifetime, Blink your eye, turn your head, and you've lost her. And you'll spend half your life wond'ring how. So before you forget how you loved her,

Kiss her now, Kiss her now, Kiss her now.

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.

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

Marcy tells Austin that in spite of his many flaws, she still loves him.
View Lyrics
MARCY When you first told me you loved me I was more than just a little bit surprised But then you left and I realized There was something about you

Something, so that I couldn`t live without you And even though you`re just a little bit pretentious Even though you`re more traditional than my dad Even though you drove me crazy from hello You touch a part of me I didn`t even know I had

And so, I need to say I want you anyway I want you anyway Even though this might not be the perfect way to tell you But, perfection never was what I did best Two months ago, I never would have guessed That I`d compare to `you know who` But now I know I belong with you

And even though I think your way of life is different Even though there`s not a single thing we share Even though you`re not like anyone I know You take me to a place I didn`t even know was there

And so, I need to say I choose you anyway I choose you anyway Even though the night when I first met you You were freakish Now look at us, we both have come so far You`re not different I`m not different But, it`s all together different `Cause I love you in spite of who you are

And even though you`re so much paler than my dream man Even though you`re such a dork and I don`t feel the way I should Even though I should stop, well here I go I love you in a way I didn`t even know I could

And so, I need to say I love you anyway I love you anyway Even though

Father, who has been summoned to assist Coalhouse, assures Mother that everything will soon return to the way it was before. Mother, however, is not convinced.
View Lyrics
There was a time Our happiness seemed never-ending I was so sure That where we were heading was right Life was a road So certain and straight and unbending Our little road With never a cross road in sight Back in the days When we spoke in civilized voices Women in white And sturdy young men at the oar Back in the days When I let you make all my choices... We can never go back to before

There was a time My feet were so solidly planted You'd sail away While I turned my back to the sea I was content, A princess asleep and enchanted If I had dreams Then I let you dream them for me Back in the days When everything seemed so much clearer Women in white Who knew what their lives held in store Where are they now, Those women who stared from the mirror? We can never go back to before.

There are people out there Unafraid of revealing That they might have a feeling Or they might have been wrong There are people out there Unafraid to feel sorrow, unafraid of tomorrow, unafraid to be weak... unafraid to be strong!

There was a time When you were the person in motion I was your wife, It never occurred to want more You were my sky My moon and my stars and my ocean We can never go back to before We can never go back to before

Although the prostitute Lucy is perceived as kind-hearted, she often has moments of deep, dark contemplation about her life.
View Lyrics
LUCY: Look at me, And tell me who I am. Why I am What I am.
Call me a fool, And it's true I am. I don't know Who I am.
It's such a shame, I'm such a sham. No one knows Who I am.
Am I the face of the future? Am I the face of the past? Am I the one who must finish last?
Look at me, And tell me who I am, Why I am What I am.
Will I survive? Who will give a damn, If no one knows Who I am?
Nobody knows - Not even you - No one knows who I am...

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

Amos has been beaten by his father again for refusing to work at the factory. They sing Tire tracks and broken hearts.

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!

Who can I turn to When nobody needs me My heart wants to know And so I must go Where destiny leads me
With no star to guide me And no one beside me I'll go on my way And after the day That darkness will hide me
And maybe tomorrow I'll find what I'm after I'll throw off my sorrow Beg, steal, or borrow My share of laughter
With you I could learn to With you on a new day But who can I turn to If you turn away
With no star to guide me And no one beside me I'll go on my way And after the day That darkness will hide me
And maybe tomorrow I'll find what I'm after I'll throw off my sorrow Beg, steal, or borrow My share of laughter
