When Will is upset that his dad Edward has to travel for work, Edward tells him to be brave.
View Lyrics
I've never been a man who lived an office life I've never been a man behind a desk I've always been a man who said that staying still was playing dead The kind who's looking forward to the challenges ahead

People say that's irresponsible People tell me stay at home But I'm not made for things like mowing lawns or apron strings I'm my best, when not at rest

So I fight the dragons and I storm the castles And I win a battle or two Then comes the day it's time, I'm packing up and I am bringing all my stories home to you

All I can see is miles ahead with miles to go All I can feel is wind and sun and sky Stop for a coffee, make a friend, and pray the day will never end 'Cause there's one more adventure waiting 'round another bend

Where I fight the dragons and I storm the castles And I win a battle or two But then a feeling comes Like fifty thousand drums all banging, "Bring my stories home to you"

And I wonder as I wander on the road from door to door Exactly what you think of where I've been

Do you know I joined the circus, met a mermaid, fought a war? Do you know I think of you through thick and thin? Because even though I'm making deals and bringin' people joy I'm usually only thinking of my boy

Out there on the road I pray You'll come to my one day And say, "Let's fight the dragons and then storm the castles 'til we win what needs to be won" So when I'm old and tired, you'll do the job required You'll be there telling stories to your son

And we fight the dragons and we storm the castles And I do the best that I can For everybody knows that's how the story goes To turn each boy into a bigger man

So I'll fight the dragons 'til you can

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!

Phil has feelings for Ruth, and wants to build a house to share with her.
View Lyrics
There's no reason in the world Why you should even look at anyone like me; But I'm so glad you did, So very glad you did, Although I don't know what there was to see.
And there's no reason in the world For you to be here now And watch the days go by; But I'm so glad you are, So very glad you are, Although I must admit I don't see why.
For there are wiser men and younger men, I wouldn't blame you if you walked away; But I feel wiser now and younger now And so with all my heart I ask you, "Stay."
For we have so much more to see And so much more to say And so much more to do; I think you ought to know If I never let you go, That I'd have ev'ry reason in the world, You!

For I feel suddenly alive, Aware that I've been touched By something warm and new; I think you ought to know If I never let you go, That I'd have ev'ry reason in the world, You!

Charlie Brown arduously tries to get his kite to fly.

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-

Mark tries to reunite with Daisy through extrasensory powers.

DR. MARK Hear my voice where you are Take a train, steal a car, Hop a freight, grab a star, come back to me. Catch a plane, catch a breeze, On your hands, on your knees, Swim or fly, only please, come back to me!

On a mule, in a jet. With your hair in a net. In a towel wringing wet - I don't care, this is where you should be!

From the hills, from the shore, Ride the wind to my door. Turn the highway to dust, Break the law if you must, Move the world, only just come back to me!

Blast your hide, hear me call. Must I fight City Hall? Here and now, damn it all, come back to me! What on Earth must I do? Scream and yell till I'm blue? Curse your soul when will you come back to me?

Have you gone to the moon or the corner saloon, And to wrack and to ruin Mademoiselle, where in Hell can you be?

In a crate, in a trunk, On a horse, on a drunk, In a Rolls or a van... Wrapped in mink or Saran... Any way that you can come back to me! Come back to me! Come back to me!

An adult reflects on his complex high school past.
View Lyrics
There's a kid inside, And I have him with me always. There's a kid inside, Walking down old high school hallways. There's a kid inside, At a desk, at a dance, in the halls, in the showers. There's a kid inside to this very day.
And he makes a try for that high pop fly, That I fumbled one September. And he makes a fuss over some A plus, That I shouldn't still remember.

And he goes along, Getting hurt, getting mad, fighting fights that are over. And unless I'm strong, All my senses are carried away.

I can feel my hand, my trembling hand, On Michelle's angora sweater. I can hear my band, that awful band, Only now it sounds much better.

I can see a kid, the kid I use to be, On the stage, on the field, in the lunch line. I can feel him tugging at me, Every time I think I don't care, I blink, And he's there again, he's there again.

Fighting ancient wrongs, Humming old hit songs in my head. Singing come along, come along, Come along for the ride. To a time and place, I could not forget if I tried.

There again, He's there again.

And I never know, when the breeze'll blow, With a rush of old sensations. Why the kid should wake, And my heart should ache, Every time I smell carnations.

Something rings a bell, Anything at all, All it takes is a slam of a locker.

Or the switch from summer to fall, A change of season seems hardly reason, But there he goes again, he's there again.

Fighting ancient wrongs, Humming old hit songs in my head. Singing come along, come along, Come along for the ride.

To a time and place, I could not forget if I tried. There he goes again, Hummin' his songs.

He's there again, There again. There's a kid inside.

Some people say that today is the day, When the cold will come And never go away.

God made the Sun And the Sun made light, And the light God into made day and night.

Some people say that tonight is the night, When the bird will fly And eat away the light.

God had a dream And the dream came true, And the dream caught into Was me and you. Me and You. Me and You.

Fifty Million Years Ago, Something in the sea, Reached above the water, eagerly.

Fifty Thousand Years Ago, Something on the land, Suddenly decided it could stand.

Does this lonely road just go to nowhere? Can it be that there's no reason why? When in spite of all the strife, And the endless dying, Life keeps reaching higher for the sky.

Fifty seconds from right now, Anything could be. I'm the future Please believe in me.

Anything we need, Anything we long for, Anything we dream can come to be.

Fifty seconds from right now, Anything could be. I'm the future Please believe in me.

Anything we need, Anything we long for, Anything we dream can come to be.

Believe. You will see, It can come to be.

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!

Will Bloom, excited about the future of his future child, wishes to strengthen the relationship with his father.
View Lyrics
Stranger I'm feeling stranger Than I've ever felt before And so much more
Different Like something old has joined With something new But still feels true

I'm passing through a rite That every parent does I'm walking on some shared familiar ground Yet every step I take Is not a step that was And I found I like the sound of

Stranger A child I've yet to meet Becomes my everything My song to sing Father And suddenly the weight of it is real What do I feel?

I feel connected In a way I've never known A line from dad to me to new-born son So from today I'll never make a choice alone One for all All for one

And when he's born I'll teach him how to use his common sense He'll listen and he'll learn and he'll excel I'll tell my son That life is lived in clear and present tense Not only in the stories we can tell

My father told me stories I could never comprehend In every tale he'd claim to be the hero I've tried to understand him But I wonder if I can

Because after almost thirty years I still don't know the man I wish I knew the man

But he's a stranger My father is a stranger I know very well A puzzling shell Hopeful What's on its way help us both to grow But I don't know

I don't know when I'll understand What made him wild I don't know why he has the urge to fly I want to face him Like a man and not a child So I'll try I'll really try

And in time, my boy is sure to see Brighter days for dad and me We can do things better than before So that strangers we will be no more

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

Barrett proposes to his girlfriend and recalls their earlier times together.
View Lyrics
BARRETT I'll be coming back to you, Darlene Back to your dark eyes and hair Marry me when I return, Darlene And until that day, my love, take care Be thee well
May the lord who watches all
Watch over thee May God's heaven be you blanket
As you softly sleep Marry me
When you're fin'ly in my arms you'll plainly see This devoted sailor's heart and soul Are yours to keep!
BRIDE Yours-to-keep... Every day from G-M-O-M "Good morning, old man" To G-N-O-M "Good night, old man" My telegraph sends its messages to ships at sea
Sending out its Dit dit-dah-dit dah-dit... Dit dit-dah-dit dah-dit Dit dit-dah-dit dah-dit...
I was young and shy, detached and sad Spent my days indoors, a home-bound lad Hardly spoke, few friends I kept myself to myself Quite alone
Then I found Marconi's Telegraph It could span the planet's width by half Fifty yards, two thousand miles The same! Touch the spark...sound the tone
And the night was alive With a thousand voices Fighting to be heard And each and every one of them Connected to me...
And my life came alive With a thousand voices Tapping out each word Like a thousand people Joined with a single heartbeat
Tapping out our Dit dit-dah-dit dah-dit Dit dit-dah-dit dah-dit Dit dit-dah-dit dah Everywhere...
BARRETT & BRIDE Marry me
So alive with a thousand voices
May the lord who watches all Watch over thee
And every one of them connected to me
Marry me
So alive with a thousand voices May God's heaven be your blanket As you sleep  those people Joined with a single heartbeat
Tapping out our
Dit dit-dah-dit dah-dit Marry me... Dit dit-dah-dit dah-dit Marry me... Dit dit-dah-dit da

I'd rather be sailing,
Yes, I would. On an open sea I'd stand at the railing
If I could Feeling wild and free
The sun is on my neck,
The wind is in my face The water's incredibly blue And I'd rather be sailing Yes, I'd wanna go sail And then come home to you
Sex is good
But I'd rather be sailing Food is nice
But I'd rather be sailing People are swell
But I'd rather be sailing Over the horizon
And I'd rather be sailing,
Yes, I would On an open sea I'd stand there
Inhaling if I could Feeling wild and free
The sun is on my neck,

As a poor child, Valentin learned that if freedom would not come tomorrow, it would come eventually.
View Lyrics
VALENTIN It was made out of mud And pieces of tin And boxes nailed together Cardboard boxes My castle My home
And we slept on the floor My sister and I With gunny sacks for our pillows Coughing, hungry, cosy My home
And every Sunday on our knees We would thank the Lord For his bountiful blessings
And our mother poured soup Into little cracked bowls As she spoke of something better Beef steak, maybe, someday My home
And that lady had eyes That were empty and cold At the ripe old age of thirty Death came Welcome To my home
And still that Sunday On our knees How we thanked the Lord For his bountiful blessings
And my sister and I Swore the day that we left There'd be no more children like us In the filth there, in the heat there. In the smell there
And no more Sundays On our knees Would we thank the Lord For his bountiful blessings
And we came to the city And begged for our food Then, one April day we heard it Thunder rumbling One man speaking Thousands singing...
Someday we'll be free I promise you, we'll be free If not tomorrow Then the day after that
And the candles in our hands Will illuminate this land If not tomorrow Then the day after that
And the world that gives us pain That fills our lives with fear On the day after that Will disappear
And the war we've fought to win I promise you, we will win If not tomorrow Then the day after that Or the day after that

CHORUS & VALENTIN Someday we'll be free I promise you, we'll be free If not tomorrow Then the day after that

And the candles in our hands Will illuminate this land If not tomorrow Then the day after that
And the world that gives us pain That fills our lives with fear On the day after that Will disappear Will disappear
Will disappear
And the war we've fought to win I promise you, we will win If not tomorrow Then the day after that Or the day after that Or the day after that Or the day after that Or the day after that Or the day After that!

Tiernan is devastated after his longtime love, Grace, has married another man. Tiernan senses, however, that this is not the end for him and Grace, and vows to remain close to her.
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.

A fictional version of Jonathan Larson has conflicted feelings about turning 30 years old.
View Lyrics
JONATHAN Stop the clock Take time out Time to regroup Before you lose the bout
Freeze the frame Back it up Time to refocus Before they wrap it up
Years are getting shorter Lines on your face are getting longer Feel like you're treading water But the riptide's getting stronger
Don't panic, don't jump ship Can't find it, like taxes At least it happens Only once in your life
They're singing, "Happy Birthday" You just wanna lay down and cry Not just another birthday, it's 30/90 Why can't you stay 29? Hell, you still feel like you're 22 Turn 30, 1990 Bang! You're dead, what can you do? What can you do? What can you do?
MICHAEL Clear the runway Make another pass Try one more approach Before you're out of gas
JONATHAN Friends are getting fatter Hairs on you head are getting thinner Feel like a clean up batter On a team that ain't a winner
MICHAEL Don't freak out, don't strike out Can't fight it, like City Hall
JONATHAN
At least you're not alone Your friends are there, too
BOTH They're singing, "Happy Birthday" You just wish you could run away Who cares about a birthday? But 30/90, hey
Can't you be optimistic? You're no longer the ingenue Turn 30, 1990 Voom! You're passe What can you do? What can you do? What can you do?
JONATHAN
Peter Pan and Tinkerbell
Which way to Never Never Land? Emerald City's gone to hell Since the Wizard blew off his command
On the streets you hear the voices Lost children, crocodiles But you're not into Making choices, wicked witches, Poppy fields or men behind the curtains, Tiger lilies,
Ruby slippers Clock is ticking, that's for certain
They're singing, "Happy Birthday" I just wish it all were a dream It feels much more like Doomsday f**k, 30/90
Seems like I'm in for a twister I don't see a rainbow, do you? Turn 30 in the 90's
Into my hands now The ball is passed I want the spoils, but not too fast The world is calling It's now or Neverland Why can't I stay a child forever and - 30/90 30/90 30/90 30/90 30/90 30-30/90 What can I do? What can I do?

Doria, a pageant contestant, dreams of visiting Disneyland in the future.
View Lyrics
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
There's nothing to do, there's nothing out there but the traffic Down on state ninety-three So I'd sit through the night by our old black and white TV That's where I saw it That's when I heard it Calling, Calling me
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

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.

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.

Anyone can whistle, That's what they say- Easy. Anyone can whistle Any old day- Easy. It's all so simple: Relax, let go, let fly. So someone tell me why can't I?
I can dance a tango, I can read Greek- Easy. I can slay a dragon Any old week- Easy. What's hard is simple. What's natural comes hard.
Maybe you could show me How to let go, Lower my guard, Learn to be free. Maybe if you whistle, Whistle for me.

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.

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

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

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

TIMOUNE Send me to places No one before me has been

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

Context & Lyrics


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!

Context & Lyrics


This song is the culmination of Samantha’s high school experience as she plans the next step for her future.
View Lyrics
SAM The seat is sinking underneath your weight. The sky is pale with morning light. Your heart is beating at a faster rate. Remember this - The racing heart, the purple dawn. Remember this Before the moment’s gone.
The street is quiet but the clouds race by, And who knows what those clouds will see. Before you start regretting, Before you turn the key, Remember this – The way it feels inside the car, The still cool air. Remember feeling like your life begins today. Try to stop and feel each second slip away. Remember this. Remember.
Remember everything that led you here, Each road trip and every single tear.
Remember what you learned And what you still don’t know. You look back on your life On the girl you were for eighteen years. You look back one more time, Then you let it go.

Your hand might shake as the ignition lights. You might not know what road you’ll take. But now the gear is shifting. Your foot is lifting off the brake. Remember this. Remember this. Remember this. Remember freedom.

Freedom. Freedom. Freedom. Freedom. Freedom.

Context & Lyrics


Lizzie, a university junior whose boyfriend is on a summer tour with his band, is forced to face her pregnancy by herself.
View Lyrics
So this is the tale my mother told me That tale that was much too dull to hold me And this is the surge and the rush she said would show Our story goes on
Oh, I was young I'd forgot how things outlive me. My goal was the kick that life would give me And now like a joke something moves to let me know Our story goes on
And all these things I feel and more My mother's mother felt and hers before A chain of life began upon the shore of some dark sea has reached to me And now I can see the chain extending My child is next in the line that has no ending And here am I feeling life that her child will feel when I'm long gone And thus it is our story goes on
And on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on And all these things I feel and more My mother's mother felt and hers before A chain of life began upon the shore of some primordial sea has stretched through time to reached to me And now I can see the chain extending My child is next in the line that has no ending
And her am I feeling life that her child will feel when I'm long gone Yes all that was is part of me as I am part of what's to be And thus it is our story goes on And on and on and on and on

When Will is upset that his dad Edward has to travel for work, Edward tells him to be brave.
View Lyrics
I've never been a man who lived an office life I've never been a man behind a desk I've always been a man who said that staying still was playing dead The kind who's looking forward to the challenges ahead

People say that's irresponsible People tell me stay at home But I'm not made for things like mowing lawns or apron strings I'm my best, when not at rest

So I fight the dragons and I storm the castles And I win a battle or two Then comes the day it's time, I'm packing up and I am bringing all my stories home to you

All I can see is miles ahead with miles to go All I can feel is wind and sun and sky Stop for a coffee, make a friend, and pray the day will never end 'Cause there's one more adventure waiting 'round another bend

Where I fight the dragons and I storm the castles And I win a battle or two But then a feeling comes Like fifty thousand drums all banging, "Bring my stories home to you"

And I wonder as I wander on the road from door to door Exactly what you think of where I've been

Do you know I joined the circus, met a mermaid, fought a war? Do you know I think of you through thick and thin? Because even though I'm making deals and bringin' people joy I'm usually only thinking of my boy

Out there on the road I pray You'll come to my one day And say, "Let's fight the dragons and then storm the castles 'til we win what needs to be won" So when I'm old and tired, you'll do the job required You'll be there telling stories to your son

And we fight the dragons and we storm the castles And I do the best that I can For everybody knows that's how the story goes To turn each boy into a bigger man

So I'll fight the dragons 'til you can
