Henry Jekyll sings to his comatose father in an asylum.
View Lyrics
JEKYLL Lost in the darkness, Silence surrounds you. Once there was morning, Now endless night.
If I could reach you, I'd guide you and teach you To walk from the darkness Back into the light.
Deep in your silence, Please try to hear me; I'll keep you near me Till night passes by.
I will find the answer. I'll never desert you-- I promise you this-- Till the day that I die...

Although Mabel is developing feelings for Mack, Mack has no time for love.
View Lyrics
I won't send roses Or hold the door I won't remember Which dress you wore
My heart is too much in control The lack of romance in my soul Will turn you grey, kid So stay away, kid
Forget my shoulder When you're in need Forgetting birthdays Is guaranteed And should I love you, you would be The last to know I won't send roses And roses suit you so
My pace is frantic My temper's cross With words romantic I'm at a loss
I'd be the first one to agree That I'm preoccupied with me And it's inbred, kid So keep your head, kid
In me you'll find things Like guts and nerve But not the kind things That you deserve And so while there's a fighting chance Just turn and go I won't send roses And roses suit you so.

The colors of my life,
Are bountiful and bold The purple glow of indigo,
The gleam of green and gold The splendor of a sunrise,
The dazzle of a flame
The glory of a rainbow,
I put 'em all to shame No quiet browns or grays,
I'll take my days instead And fill them 'til they overflow,
With rose and cherry red
And should this sunlit world,
Grow dark one day The colors of my life
Will leave a shining light to show the way
No quiet browns or grays,
I'll take my days instead And fill them 'til they overflow,
With rose and cherry red
And should this sunlit world,
Grow dark one day The colors of my life
Will leave a shining light to show the way

GEORGE Other pleasures... And I've known many... Afternoons In warm Venetian squares, Brief encounters, Long siestas... Pleasures old and new Can't compare with you.
You amaze me! Where did you come from? You do things Champagne could never do. Crystal winters, Crimson summers... Other pleasures -- I would trade them all For you.
Pleasures old and new Can't compare with you... Wild mimosa,... The scent of evening... Shuttered rooms With sunlight breaking through... Crazy soirees... Lazy Sundays... Other pleasures... I would trade them all For you.
Sailing off In the night On a silver lake... Taking more From this life Thank I ought to take... Other pleasures... I would trade them all For you.

Chauvelin tries to get Marguerite to remember their passion for each other and the Revolution.
View Lyrics
I remember days full of restlessness and fury I remember nights that were drunk on dreams I remember someone who hungered for the glory I remember her, but it seems she's gone
Where's the girl?
Where's the girl with the blaze in her eyes? Where's the girl with that gaze of surprise? Now and then I still dream she's beside me Where's the girl who could turn on the edge of a knife? Where's the girl who was burning for life? I can still feel her breathing beside me
And I know she remembers how fearless she feels To take off with the wind at her heels She and I took this world like a storm Come again!
Let the girl in your heart tumble free Bring your renegade heart home to me In the dark of the morning, I'll warm you I'll rouse you
Marguerite, don't forget I know who you are We were cut from the same surly star Like two jewels in the sky sharing fire Where's the girl so alive and still aching for more? We had dreams that were worth dying for We were caught in the eye of a storm Come again!
Let the girl in your heart tumble free Bring your renegade heart home to me In the dark of the morning, I'll warm you I'll rouse you
Where's the girl? Is she gazing at me with surprise? Do I still see that blaze in her eyes? Am I dreaming, or is she beside me now?

View Lyrics
CIOFFI (spoken) You see what I'm saying? The song itself is kind of lackluster. It lacks...

CHRIS (spoken) Yes?

CIOFFI (spoken) Luster.

CHRIS (spoken) I agree. We need a completely new composition, one that's catchier than pink eye. I'll leave you to it.

CIOFFI (spoken) Well, at least now you'll have a few minutes alone with your piano.

AARON (spoken) Alone, yeah.

CIOFFI (spoken) Could I ask, only becauseI've wondered this my entire life-- Which would normally come first, the music or the lyric?

AARON (spoken) Same answer as the chicken or the egg.

CIOFFI (spoken) Ah, so it's the lyric.

AARON (spoken) No. It can start with a note. Which can become a phrase. And then you try hanging words off each branch, like trimming a tree.

CIOFFI Sounds easy enough.

AARON Really? Well don't talk about love Or you'll have to say "fits like a glove" Or "As certain as push comes to shove" You will pine for the woman you're constantly thinking of You see the problem.

CIOFFI (spoken) Dangling participle. So you suggest staying away from love?

AARON At all costs. And don't mention your life Or you'll have to say "cuts like a knife" Or refer to the heartbreak and strife When you find that you're missing your ...

CIOFFI (spoken) Missing?

AARON (spoken) What?

CIOFFI (spoken) You were saying what you miss.

AARON No I meant that, well... I miss the music I miss the song Since she's not with me It comes out wrong

It doesn't matter How hard I try I've lost the music I don't know why

You may have known Before I met her I wrote alone But if you ask me What I prefer I'd say the music I wrote with her

When you're writing a song And you've a partner The room is filled with jokes and chatter She says something You say something She writes a line You play a vamp

But when you're writing a song Without a partner That's a completely different matter No one tells you "That's not funny" No one says "Let's cut that bar" No one makes you better than you are

I can't pretend I miss the music I miss my friend No need to ask me What I prefer I choose the music I wrote with her I liked the music I made with--

GEORGIA (spoken): Aaron, I forgot my lyric. Can you believe it? Me.

AARON Well you're not the lyricist now, you're the star. Georgia, Break a leg.

GEORGIA Thanks. You can finish the song without me?

AARON I'm a one-man band. I miss the music I miss my friend No need to ask me What I prefer I choose the music I wrote with her I loved the music I made with her

I don't remember you I don't remember you I don't recall a single thing we used to say or do What dancing in the park What laughter in the dark What smould'ring fireplace that lit your face with every spark
And if I left you once before Somehow I can't recall it anymore That was another girl
You're not at all like her Though for an instance when you touched me
I believed you were But I was wrong this moment is new Because I can't, I wont
I don't remember you
That was another time Another time and place Although you bare a faint resemblance,
You're another face Yes I was wrong This moment is new Because I can't
I wont
I don't remember you

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.

A musician recalls loving music through his father’s piano abilities.
View Lyrics
My father's pride Was in his hands. The piano was his soul.

I watched and wondered As he played show tunes Miles off from rock and roll.

What he loved he taught me. Now music's what I do. And often when I'm writing, In my hands, Dad's there too.

If I sing you are the music. If I fly you're why I'm good. If my hands can find some magic You're the one who said they could.

When the child that's still inside me, Finds a song in empty air. When there is joy in making music It is you who put it there.

My dad grew old. His hands grew numb. And now he cannot play.

I came to visit. He sat and asked me "How it could be this way?"

I couldn't find an answer. I played this tune for him instead. My father sat there smiling For he knew what it said.

If I sing you are the music. If I love you taught me how. Every day your heart is beating In the man that I am now.

If my ears are tuned to wander. If when I reach the chords are there. If there is joy in making music, It's a joy that we both share.

I never told you. It took time till I could see That if I sing you are the music And you'll always sing in me.

Yes you'll always live in me.

Dr. Taylor, a small town physician, hopes that his college-aged son Joe will eventually marry his girlfriend Jenny.
View Lyrics
A fellow needs a girl to sit by his side,
At the end of a weary day. To sit by his side and listen to him talk
And agree with the things he'll say. A fellow needs a girl to hold in his arms
When the rest of the world goes wrong, To hold in his arms and know that she believes
That her fellow is wise and strong.

When things go right, And his job's well done, He wants to share The prize he's won. If no one shares and no one cares, Where is the fun of a job well done? Or a prize you've won?

A fellow needs a home, His own kind of home, But to make this dream come true, A fellow needs a girl, His own kind of girl, My kind of girl is you.

Raoul dwells on his troubled marriage with Christine.
View Lyrics
RAOUL (spoken) One more

BARTENDER (spoken) Oh, buddy, don't you think you've had enough? It's practically morning already

RAOUL (spoken) One more, I said

BARTENDER (spoken) Alright, alright My shift is over anyway, so let's settle the bill, okay? Jeez, you're in a bad way ain't you? Worse than most that end up here. Here's the morning shift, maybe he'll know what to do with you

RAOUL (spoken) Yes, what to do with me That's the question, isn't it? That's always been the question Ever since the beginning (sung) She looks for sympathy I give her sorrow She asks for honesty I've none to borrow

She needs my tender kiss She begs it of me I give her ugliness Why does she love me?

She yearns for higher things Things I can't give her The rush that music brings I can't deliver

And even when she sings And soars above me I try to clip her wings Why does she love me?

One more drink, sir That's what I need Don't you think, sir? Leave the hurt behind

Do you hear me? Another drink

She wants the man I was Husband and father At least, she thinks she does She needn't bother

Beneath this mask I wear There's nothing of me Just horror, shame, despair Why does she love me?

How 'bout you, sir? Tell me what am I to do, sir? Leave the hurt behind

MEG Morning, Bernie, coffee please Hurry up before I freeze I'll just take it black (spoken) Mother said, I'd find you here

RAOUL (spoken) Miss Giry

MEG (spoken) Do you know where you are?

RAOUL (spoken) Hell, I imagine...

MEG (spoken) Around here they call it suicide hall It's where people end up When they don't know where else to go The hopeless, the desperate A good place to step off the side Off the pier and quietly vanish

RAOUL You seem to be a regular

MEG Me? I come here to swim (sung) This town is coarse and cold and mean It's hard to keep your conscience clean Faceless in the crowd Anything's allowed

And so I come at dawn each day Come to wash it all away Sink into the sea, blue and cool and kind Let it set me free, let the past unwind Leave the hurt behind

(spoken) You should never have come to America. It's not a place for people like you and Christine. It's too easy to forget who you are and where you belong. That's why Mother says you must leave here. Now, take your wife and the boy and go.

RAOUL (spoken) Leave? What about tonight? The concert, the money? Am I to just run away from him?

MEG (spoken) When the sun rises tomorrow We can all start again, clean (sung) Sail across the sea Put us out of mind Close your eyes and flee Let yourself stay blind Leave this place behind

After Lawrence takes Christine to the train station, he develops feelings for her.
View Lyrics
Love sneaks in When everything seems quiet, Sets the bait And like a fool you buy it.
Your famous self-possession's Vanished from your repertoire- This is what can happen when you Leave the door ajar...
And love sneaks in And whispers to you sweetly Silly words that change your life completely.
You're fumbling in the dark. The master's now the mark. You're out of luck If love sneaks in on you.
The player has been nicely played The mocker's now the mocked- That's what tends to happen when You leave yourself unlocked.
And love sneaks through The usual defenses. The sighs, the smirks The state the old pretenses.
What's gone is what you were. What's left is all a blur. You're stung, you're stuck For love snuck in with her.

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.

Before their wedding, Fabrizio relieves Clara of all her fears and doubts.
View Lyrics
The day we meet, The way you lean against the wind, And do not know that you are beautiful, Or that anyone is watching you, This is what I see.
And I notice how you hunger for surprise, And do not think that you are tall enough, Like you’re standing on a mountainside alone, This is what I see.
Ohhh… You’re not alone.
Now I see as I have never seen before. Since that moment in the square, When you’re hat is carried in the air, Just so you can chase it, Just so I can be there, This is how I know, This is what I see, This is love to me.

A man sings to his boyfriend about both the rapture and doubts of their love.
View Lyrics
Long ago, I tasted something sweet. It's an echo, it's a memory in retreat. Like a feeling of fullness, Like the knowing of quiet fortitude, of ancient heroes. It was something I trusted somehow. But now...
But now it's gone, and I am incomplete. In the darkness, and the hollow, in the heat. If I flash on the future I see only the empty future shock, an afterimage. There is only I want, I want, I want.
I don't know what I hunger for, I don't know why I feel the hunger more And more with every passing day. I don't know from where the hunger springs, But that it's there and that it sings
Of someplace far away.
So get me up, and get me out, and let me never return To the darkness and the hollow, and to the burn. I want out of this hunger, To take me up to a higher altitude. Take me all the way, I'm out of here. I am going there. I am gone!
Oh, get me up like Icarus, And give me wings like Pegasus. Just get me out and get me high!

The Minstrel introduces the story of "The Princess and the Pea."
View Lyrics
Many moons ago in a far-off place Lived a handsome prince with a gloomy face For he did not have a bride.
Oh, he sighed "Alas". And he pined, Alas, But, alas, the prince couldn't find a lass Who would suit his mother's pride.
For a princess is a delicate thing, Delicate and dainty as a dragonfly's wing. You can recognize a lady by her elegant air But a genuine princess is exceedingly rare.
On stormy night to the castle door Came the lass the prince had been waiting for: "I'm a princess lost," quoth she. But the queen was cool and remained aloof and she said, "Perhaps, but we'll need some proof; I'll prepare a test and see."
(spoken) "I will test her thus," The old queen said, "I'll put twenty downy mattresses upon her bed, And beneath those twenty mattresses I'll place one tiny pea. If that pea disturbs her slumber Then a true princess is she!"
Now, the bed was soft, and extremely tall But the dainty lass didn't sleep at all, And she told them so next day. Said the queen, "My dear, if you felt that pea Then we've proof enough of your royalty. Let the wedding music play!" And the people shouted quietly

ALL (quietly) "Hooray!"

MINSTREL For a princess is a delicate thing, Delicate and dainty as a dragonfly's wing. You can recognize a lady by her elegant air, But a genuine princess is exceedingly rare!

(spoken) There are many versions of this story. I sing them all. This is the prettiest, but it's not quite accurate. I happen to know the true story of "The Princess and the Pea", For the very good reason that I was there. It was a small kingdom, ruled over by a talkative Queen and a mute King. And the princess in the true story was not the only girl put to the test. Actually, she was one of 13 girls? girls who came to the castle hoping To wed the Prince, but who, for one reason or another, were found to be unsuitable.

Percy rediscovers why he still loves Marguerite.
View Lyrics
So many nights I have stood in the moonlight Watching it fade into dawn Wanting her back with me, warm in the moonlight Knowing that moment was gone Out of mind, out of sight, Till the moon rose tonight
All at once, I felt a chill In a spill of moonlight, she was there Though we both held very still There was something pulling in the air When she whispered through the dark
I tried hard to hold my ground I believed I had a choice Till the music in her voice Turned my whole world around
I would like to understand But the stars and I begin to blur If she never touched my hand Then what filled me with the feel of her?
In between us stood a wall In a flash it fell apart Is it possible she heard Every last unspoken word Racing out of my heart?
She never turned to me, but suddenly We had so much to share! I never took her in my arms, but she was there Oh, she was there!
No, I never pulled her in Still her tenderness was everywhere Oh, she slipped beneath my skin Just as if she'd always been right there
Has she been there all along? Was I too far gone to know? What a fool I must have been For how could I pull her in When I've never let her go?

I don't look for trouble I do not accept blame I've a good and a bad side But they're one and the same Ask me to arouse you I will rise and obey These are the games I play

I screw every morning Then bathe and drink tea I been playing canasta Disasta-rously All my recreation seems to suit me okay These are the games I play

It's tough with love Love's tough to show Let me face the music It's a song that I was waiting to hear so long So long ago

I bet on the horses I die by degree I am sure his divorce is A tribute to me Ask me if I love him It depends on the day These are the games I play

It's tough, my friend Love's looking strong Play again the music It's a song that I been waiting to hear For much to long Years, years too long

It hurts not to love him It hurts when love fades It's hard when part of him Is off playing fam'ly charades

Ask me if I need him Get him out of my way These are These are the games These are the games These are the only games I play

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!

Anthony Palazzo describes how a mason's work lasts even after he is gone.
View Lyrics
He builds a house With his hands Thirty years go by It stands It stands where nothing stood A house of stone The mason sleeps real good
He does his work His workday flies Quittin' time's a big surprise And then it's one more stone To get just right It's always one more stone Before the night
Every house he builds Every stone he lays It's not just makin' money And countin' off the days
He builds a house With his hands A hundred years go by It stands It tells you who he was A life goes fast But the work a mason does It's made to last
The work a mason does It's made to last

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

Gould wants Edith to put aside their faded memories while he is gone.
View Lyrics
GOULD Understand kid, It's been just grand, kid. The cocktails, the cufflinks - the fun. Remember me when you're singing "Tea for One."

EDITH (spoken) If you're gone, who would I even talk to?

GOULD (spoken) Yourself. The occasional cat.

EDITH (spoken) That's not funny.

GOULD After I'm gone, When the ocean's haze Blankets the grounds in grey Drift away, on the tide, Drift away.

When you're alone, And the twilight's glow Shimmers across the bay Drift away, on a wave, Drift away. Our tete-a-tetes-

EDITH Midnight duets-

GOULD &EDITH Our breakfast tea and toast.

GOULD Funny how things that mean the least Are what we miss the most. Deep in the night When the whispering breeze Sings this song I play, Shed a tear and be glad For the fun that we had. Drift away, on a dream... Drift away.

EDITH (spoken) You're my soul mate, that's what you are.

GOULD (spoken) "Soul mate." Is that the nom de jour?

EDITH (spoken) I've no idea what you mean.

GOULD (spoken) For the party this afternoon, which would you prefer? Should I wear the white satin jacket you bought for me at Bergdorf's? Or the linen one you picked up in Rome?

EDITH (spoken) Now, Gould-! Gould!

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!

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

In my gray flannel suit, In my new, shiny car, In my split level house, With my big, black cigar, Can't you picture me?

I will follow you, I will follow you To what may be a strange and alone world. For I know I'd be lost in my own world, If you're not part of it too.

I will follow you, I am ready to go Wherever you happen to lead me, Just in case you might happen to need me, All that you have to do is turn around, For I'll be following you.

I am ready to go Wherever you happen to lead me, Just in case you might happen to need me, All that you have to do is turn around, For I'll be following you.

Only you, long as I may live,
Fanny, Fanny, Fanny. You, long as I may live, Fanny, If I could love,
That's what I would say.
But my heart isn't mine to give. Fanny, Fanny, Fanny. No, no not mine to give. Fanny. For it is gone, given long away
To the sea, my one love
In her gray green clothes, Deep with wonders beyond the shore; To the isles 'neath the winds
Where the spice wood grows. I must know them all,
Or sleep no more!
Here's a boy with no heart to give, Fanny, Fanny, Fanny. Not worth one tear you'll cry, Fanny. Oh, Fanny, goodbye!

JEKYLL Lost in the darkness, Silence surrounds you. Once there was morning, Now endless night.
If I could reach you, I'd guide you and teach you To walk from the darkness Back into the light.
Deep in your silence, Please try to hear me; I'll keep you near me Till night passes by.
I will find the answer. I'll never desert you-- I promise you this-- Till the day that I die...
