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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

PEASANTS Ooh la ooh la ooh la ooh la

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

PEASANTS Ooh la ooh la ooh la ooh la

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

PEASANTS Ooh la ooh la ooh la ooh la

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

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

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

Oh gods, oh gods Let me fly

PEASANTS Oh oh oh

TIMOUNE Send me to places No one before me has been

PEASANTS Ooh la ooh la ooh la

TI MOUNE You spared my life Show me why

PEASANTS Oh oh oh

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

PEASANTS Waiting

TI MOUNE Waiting for Life to Begin!

Lily, who is married, flirts with a thief at a nightclub.
View Lyrics
THE WIFE: (sung) Friday night down on Houston, In a spot called Bamboo Jack’s, Everyone was doin’ the mambo And drinkin’ Golden Cadillacs. Sally was there with her Daddy. But Daddy was in a funk ‘Cause Sally met up with and took a shine To a hunk from East Podunk. And Daddy cried, “Hey, Whatcha doin’ watcha doin’? What’s he got I don’t got? All I see’s American cheese. He’ll melt when you get hot.”

And Sally said: “I see what I wanna see. I know what I wanna know. I don’t need you To tell me what’s true If you don’t like it, Daddy, You can blow, blow, blow, blow, blow!”

Saturday night at the same place. They roll up the bamboo rug. Everyone was doin’ the limbo, Except Sally and her Podunk Plug. Seems he took a shine to some chicken Shakin’ her tom-tom-tom. Sally saw that and—guacamole— She exploded like the hydrogen bomb.

She cried, “Hey, hey watcha doin’ watcha doin’? What’s she got that I lack? That chicken is thin And meaner than sin And uglier than Bamboo Jack!”

The Husband/The Band: (sung) And he said!

The Wife: (sung) “I see what I wanna see I know what I wanna know. I don’t need you To tell me what’s true If you don’t like it, baby, You can blow blow blow blow blow blow blow blow!

I see what I wanna see I know what I wanna know I don’t need you To tell me what’s true – If you don’t like it baby baby baby baby ba-ba-baby you can blow!”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I am there I am there I am there

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

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!

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...

View Lyrics
Listen to me, I have beautiful dreams I can spin you Dreams to linger within you Close your eyes and we’ll ride my carousel I’ll sing you stories of lovers whose love used to fill me And the lovers who will be For, you see, love is one thing I do well Come, let’s believe love can be just as sweet as it seems Let’s live on dreams!

In my dreams such beautiful lovers have found me Storybook lovers surround me Nothing is real, but I’m flying, sighing Where, where, where is my storybook ending? Why does my golden pretending Leave me with nothing to hold but my dreams? Oh, is it only in dreams that we find our ideal love? Are there lovers with real love? If you know how to feel love, show me now Ah, but my prince, if you can’t be as sweet as you seem I’d rather dream

Come and wake me! Come be the love I can hold now Storybook love leaves me cold now Show me the way to stop dreaming There is only one perfect storybook ending That is the end of pretending That is the moment I say, love me now!

Et sur mon manege, l’amour toujours est chantant De mes reves, c’est le commencement Et j’espere une fin heureuse Mais la fin de l’histoire ne vient pas tres doucement Pour l’histoire, il faut faire semblant Certes je n’embrasse que mes reves Seuls mes reves!

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

Kate, Queenie's friend, reveals that she knows that Black is trying to use her, but she doesn't mind.
View Lyrics
KATE Black is a moocher And I like it like that Three-pocket-poocher And I like it like that

I like him the way that he is He is no’innocent And Christ. He’s guilty where it counts I use him daily in increasin’ amounts And I like it like that Un-huh Un-huh Un-huh Un-huh And I like it like that Mmmhm mmmhm’ I like it like

In the morning light when he rubs his beard Then he touches me; In the afternoon. when he draws my bath Then undresses me; Come round curtain time, when he spends my dough Then he cheats on me; Come the quarter-moon; when he drinks too much Then he cries for me; Breaking a stray in ain’t so hard; Had ta teach him to play in my backyard

Black is a liar And I like it like that Thinks with his wire And I like it like that I’m in for the thrill of the kill’ If I can’t have him Then nobody will.

All I need what I need

Kate I need to feel his touch

All I need I need

Kate I need to feel his sex

All I need to feel your sex I need to hear your name I need your fire I need your breath I need your lust Lust! Lust! Lust!

SHELBY A long time ago A lady whose name was Carmen Drove a man wild Until he was out of control

I truly believe That i am a modern day Carmen In spite of the fact I do not habla espanol

That girl was exactly like me We share this philosophy Ole, I say

I'm not the type who's ready For datin' someone steady I'm everybody's girl

On Sunday night it's Danny On Monday, maybe Nanny I'm everybody's girl

There's a point to my behavior Which is: Smart girls always share their riches

So, if your heart succumbs Don't let it You're certain to regret it All others, come and get it I'm everybody's girl.

I could never be a cowhand's girl

La la la la la la

And you wanna know why?

ALL: Why?

SHELBY: I just can't keep my calves together.

I'm everybody's girl Some old greek called Aristotle said it: If you got it, why not spread it? So don't go rattling any sabres Exerting any labors Just share me with the neighbors I'm everybody's girl

In case your passion rages, (I'm in the yellow pages) I'm... Girl.

You won't be disappointed I'm also double-jointed I'm everybody's girl Though it leaves a lot of fellas Cursin' I'm a person Needs disbursin'

And so to reaffirm my status It's absolutely gratis To use my apparatus I'm everybody's girl

Men and me are like pianos. When they Get upright, i feel grand!

Everybody's girl!

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

Well, pop the champagne, break out the cologne; turn up the moonlight and turn off the phone. Well, what a surprise, a man is in sight; and I will be loved tonight.
To fondle his skin, to savor his lips; to nuzzle his chin, to movie with his hips. our words will be soft as we softly ignite; and I will be loved tonight.
You can go from week to week, you can go from year to year; not a hand placed on your cheek, not a whisper in your ear. You can make it through okay, you can live and laugh, and flirt. It's quite easy in the day; it's just the nights that always hurt.
So let darkness come, 'cause that will be fine; for I'll have a soul entangled in mine. We'll do as we please, and please... hold me tight. For I will be loved, I will be loved. Yes, I will be loved tonight.

VICKI You gotta love that man He's like my personal angel I've always wanted the kind of life That I've been having as Harold's wife What a catch I have caught He would buy me the moon If the moon could be bought I'm telling you - You gotta love that man

JERRY Why can't you just tell her?

HAROLD She adores me. How do you break the heart of someone you love?

VICKI I really love that man He likes me dressed to the nines I saw two words and then ta-da There's me completely in Prada And I've got the boots that go with the belt That goes with the bag That goes with my wonderful life with Harold You gotta love that man

So he tells me you boys are rollers at the mill. That's wonderful. Of course, I don't actually know what rollers do, but hey, I hardly know what Harold does over there. It's all steel to me.

HAROLD Look at her. She's a piece of Dresden china. She'd break into a million pieces!

VICKI God, I love that man But lately he's working too hard I keep on telling him how we Should take a few weeks in Maui And we'll feel the breeze and sample the poi And go see Don Ho and I'll say "Oh boy, how I love you, Harold" I hit the jackpot with Harry

He's a gem - he's a beaut He looks cute in a suit and he loves me to boot I'm telling you You gotta love that man

Love that man I love that man I love that man!

MEN Love that man You gotta love that man You really gotta love That man

Claire explains to Jason her romantic past with a man who died in the 9/11 attacks.
View Lyrics
We met, of all places, In front of Gristedes some freakishly cold winters day. I had on several unflattering layers of wool. He slipped on the ice with his grocery bags full, So I rescued some Fruit Loops he dropped by the curb And he made some remark that my smile was superb I thought that was sweet and I started to go and he said "Hey, whatcha doing tomorrow?'

'Because I'll be here At the corner of Bleeker and Mercer tomorrow at 7. If you want to meet up, I'll be waiting right here, And in case there are two fellas waiting for you, my name's John." He waved and then he was gone.

Needless to say I went back there to meet him Mostly to see if he'd show, and there he was Out in the cold with his jacket pulled tight. He took me to dinner and kissed me goodnight. The next week we went to this terrible play. And the week after that drank hot chocolate all day. And suddenly, eight or nine months had flown by when he said "Hey, whatcha doing the rest of your life?'

'Because I'll be here Right beside you as long as you want me to be. There's no question. There is nothing I've wanted so much in my life. This might sound immature but I'm totally sure you're the one." And we had just begun.

We got hitched in September, our favorite month, With a rock band that played in this old synagogue. And we bought an apartment on West 17th street and talked about children and getting a dog. Our first anniversary came in a flash And we promised to take the day off. He had to stop into his office that morning, And so I went walking uptown to this bakery I know. When I heard on the street what I thought was a joke Till I noticed the sirens and saw all the smoke. So I'm running back home with this feeling of dread To the voicemail he left with the last words he said.

I'm sorry, I don't mean to ruin your evening by bringing up all of this stuff. You're probably wondering why I even called you tonight. Well today something happened that spooked me alright. I saw this storm cloud of papers fall down from the sky, And I thought of that day and I started to cry. When as sure as I breath I heard John clear as day saying "Hey, you're allowed to move on. It's okay.'

'Because I'll be here Even if you decide to get rid of my favorite sweater. Even if you go out on my birthday This year instead of staying at home letting all of life's moments pass by. You don't have to cry.'

'Because I'll be here When you start going back to the places we went to together. When you take off my ring and you let yourself smile. When you meet some handsome and patient and true. When he says that he wants to be married to you. When you call him one night and he meets you downtown. When you finally answer him yes." Yes. Jason, I will marry you. I will give you my heart. It has taken so long, but I'm ready to start. Right now John's whispering 'Congrats' in my ear cause I finally let myself tell you That I will be here.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A woman sings a tongue-in-cheek tribute to her boyfriend, a jazz bassist.
View Lyrics
My scattered life had no foundation Couldn't seem to find my space Then all at once came inspiration Now i'm back on base.

My baby plays a line that subtle Yet it makes the strongest case An argument with no rebuttal Got me back on base.

When his fingers touch my strings I tingle to my teeth I seem to sing the wildest things When he is underneath.

The only worm that's in this eden The only snag in all this lace Is where i stand ain't easy reading When he's back on base.

(scat)

At times he seems a bit elusive Way off in his private place I guess he can't be mine exclusive When he's back on base.

He's got eyes for something tall So maybe i should go Then once more my defences fall When he gets down below oh oh oh oh oh oh

So what if he don't feel like talkin' I'll just let him play his ace And let his fingers do the walkin' 'Til i'm back on...

Always back on... So happy back on base. (scat) We make sweet music when we're both back on base

Context & Lyrics


A woman who is bittersweet with her life surrenders to her circumstances without complaining.
View Lyrics
It was a liberated marriage We shared the household chores of course We understood each others feelings Right down to the day of our sensible divorce

I didn't ask him for a penny I'd had my liberated training

So off he went with his hair of bronze To find a life like Khalil Gibran's I got my rest from the drugs he did He got his quest, I got the kid

And oh, I'm not complaining

So I set off to be a writer, A modern mother on her own I wrote up happenings at galleries Turned down jobs with salaries Stayed freelance and alone

I fought the battles of the sixties Which you recall were rather draining When men were thick, I hit the fray Became a prick Got equal pay I faced down chauvinistic slobs I won the fights Improved the jobs

And oh, I'm not complaining

My husband found himself his ashram Lost forty pounds and went through hell Then one day he came back from limbo Found himself some bimbo And moved to New Rochelle

I raised my son and I had lovers My choices sometimes take explaining I'd meet some jock My friends would scoff He'd stay a while I'd drive him off I kept my space Preserved my turf Six months I'd send him back to surf

And oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, I was not complaining

So now my son's half way through college I pay tuition like a fine I'm still this feisty freelance writer Resume well honed At a well toned forty-nine

I find that getting work is harder Each job I want takes more campaigning And those sweet young things who hire me now Those MBAs making fifty thou Who smile and ask what I have done When they got their jobs from the fights I won

Ah, they should all stay home and have babies

But I'm not complaining

And in the evening at my window As I watch Jersey growing dim I feel a troubling emotion Summed up in this notion I wish I'd stayed with him

Lord knows each day with him was madness As I have spent my life maintaining

But more and more I recall the joy My golden dreamer My lost boy Our life was life in the twilight zone But no worse than a life alone

And oh, Well I chose my way And I'm not complaining

A seemingly introverted woman reveals that there's more to her than meets the eye.
View Lyrics
The sign says I'm Miss Byrd And that's my name I'm one of those people who all look the same At work I'm hardly seen I come and go
But I know something that people don't know
Every one who sees me thinks That I'm that dull Miss Byrd I could blow that myth apart But i don't say a word

I sit here at my desk And no one knows Not twenty minutes ago I was not wearing clothes I was in someone's arms, in someone's bed Oh what the thought of it does to my head

If it's true a bird makes music When her heart takes wing This bird is singing Miss byrd is singing I'm singing I'm in love But I'm not saying a thing

Uh uh Oooh oooh

Down in apartment a The super's aptly named Last week I went to the basement More hours than i claimed He says i'm super too He calls me hot I show those basement apartments a lot

Back at work i'm crisp and fresh Reliable Miss Byrd Seals are dancing in my flesh But I don't say a word

I'm showing penthouse c As i begin I still feel his hands sliding over my skin My nipples start to throb Inside my bra That's when I start to go la-dah-di-dah

If you've never felt the lift A little lunch can bring This bird is singing Miss Byrd is singing I'm singing I'm on fire But i'm not saying a thing

No no no no oh oh oh...

This is a floor thru five I call it more a six The broken kitchenette tiles they will fix

Lots of girls who first seems shy Have secrets I have found If you think I'm special I suggest you look around

That little office temp Who seems so dumb How come a trip to mcdonald's Is making her hum?

And Mrs. Smith in sales Who's turning grey Why is she smiling that curious way?

If it's true the drabbest songbirds Come alive in spring The birds are singing Miss Byrd is singing I'm singing I'm in love But I'm not saying a thing

No no no no no no no no

Mum's the word

La la la la Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard...oo-wee

La la la la... Shh.....

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

The actress Marguerite cannot understand her husband Percy's change in behavior.
View Lyrics
When I look at you
What I always see Is the face of someone else
Who once belonged to me Still I can hear him laugh And even though that melody plays on,
He's gone
When I look at you
He is standing there I can almost breathe him in
Like summer in the air Why do you smile his smile? That heaven I'd forgotten eases through,
In you
If you could look at me once more With all the love you felt before If you and I could disappear into the past And find that love we knew I'd never take my eyes away from you
When I look at you,
He is touching me I would reach for him,
But who can hold a memory? And love isn't everything That moonlight on the bed will melt away,
Someday
Oh, you were once that someone Who I followed like a star Then suddenly you changed, And now I don't know who you are Or could it be
That I never really knew you from the start?
Did I create a dream? Was he a fantasy? Even a memory is paradise for all the fools like me Now, remembering is all that I can do Because I miss him so,
When I look at you

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

A woman discovers that her lover has been cheating on her, so she walks out.
View Lyrics
You must be mistaken It couldn't have been You couldn't have seen him yesterday He's doing some deal up in Baltimore now I hate it, when he's away!

You must be mistaken I'm sure that you are! There's more than one car with stickers on. And lots of young guys wear corduroy pants. And I'd know if he hadn't gone

Take that look off your face (Take that look off your face) I can see through your smile (I can see through your smile) You would love to be right, I bet you didn't sleep good last night Couldn't wait to bring all of that bad news to my door. Well, I've got news for you: I knew before.

If I'm not mistaken, it started last year.

I'm not very clear how it began I noticed a change, but I just closed my eyes As only a woman can.

No, I didn't dig deep. (No, I didn't dig deep.) I did not want to know. (I did not want to know.) Well, you don't interfere when you're scared of the things you might hear. When he's back, you think I will end it right there and then? Well, my fair weather friend: you're wrong again!

Take that look off your face (Take that look off your face) I can see through your smile (I can see through your smile) You would love to be right, I bet you didn't sleep good last night Couldn't wait to bring all of that bad news to my door. Well, I've got news for you: I knew before.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Mad Hatter raves on about how she wants to rule Wonderland.
View Lyrics
Well Hello, there, it's me With how it's gonna be, Settle down and listen up good.

The old Hatter is gone But the Hat must go on Worn by me, is that understood?

So shut up and tow the line, While I redefine How this all will be mine.

I have a dream, It's got a full head of steam!

What is true what is not Can both change in a shot And people, me, I couldn't care less.

'Cause in two seconds flat Livin' under my hat Is the strategy for success.

I will look the other way When you want to play Something more than croquet. You catch my drift? My little personal gift!

I'm the Mad Hatter Come and follow me, this is it. The Mad Hatter, All you gotta do is submit.

And if you don't my friend, Well then in the end, There'll be nothing left to defend. Know what I mean? When you are facing the Queen.

Uppercase, double-spaced Everyone gets a taste, And a brand new leather hat band.

But to participate, Let me reiterate You must first put me in command.

I'm the wonder, understand, Under Wonderland, Put the reigns in my hand. I'll do the rest, As soon as you've acquiesced!

I'm the Mad Hatter Offering a little bit more. The Mad Hatter, Giving you what you're looking for.

I am your best worst case For the choice you face, And the fastest rat in the race! It's me or the queen And her serene guillotine.

There is nothing I won't do, There is nothing too taboo, I will lie, I will cheat, I will track you down And then hit delete tout suite!

So sweetie let me repeat... I'm the Mad Hatter, Lend allegiance while you still can, The Mad Hatter More than just a Hat with a plan.

I am where you belong, The right kind of wrong, And I'll still be going real strong!

The bottom line Is everything will be fine. As all the planets align, It's gonna be so divine. When all of this will be MINE!!

A woman sings about setting her own rules and choosing her own path.
View Lyrics
Now, I'm standing here the sunlight is soft & warm. Is this a gentle paradise or only the eye of the storm? This time will I just give in when the rain starts to pour down? This time will I start to swim or will I start to drown?

Now, I'm walking alone as the wind circles all around. Waiting for the slightest move or the first unexpected sound. This time will I raise my shield when the hunters spot their prey? This time will I stay in the field or will I run away?

From who I am, And what I want, And what I can find, And who I will be.

Now, I'm moving along as the twilight begins to spread. I take in this moment as the clouds gather overhead. This time will I see what's true when the lightening streaks through the grey? This time will it blind my view or will it light the way?

To who I am, And what I want, And what I can find, And who I will be.

And all these questions in me, are fading away as I suddenly see; I can embrace everything behind me. And find the place where I finally find me.

Now, I run with you as a new sun begins to rise. I can see forever through these endless big blue skies.

Now is the only time. Here is the only place. This is all I want to be.

This time I can see the view. This time the sun will shine through. This time. This time. This time.

I've had it up to here With all these holier-than-thous Who want to save me from the devils wicked den
When all they really want is What those jokers always want And when they get we don't see them Until they want it again
Don't quote me no commandments Don't preach me no jive There's only one commandment Thou shall survive
Maybe I'm a sinner, but who's gonna cast the first stone? It's my body and my body Is nobody's business but my own Nobody's business but my own
What if I'm a sinner, hey, I ain't exactly alone It's my body and my body Is nobody's business but my own Nobody's business but my own
All those uptown ladies Look and dress so fine They can sell it their way, Let me sell it mine!
Maybe you don't like it Maybe you don't like it But that don't mean nothing because My body is my business, My business not yours
I know what I'm doing And I know who I am If you got a problem I don't give a damn (3x)
Ain't no doubt about it 'Cause baby it's written in stone It's my body not your body Cuz my body is my business, My business Is my business And nobody's business (4x) But my own!

DR. MARK There's no one here but you and me.
DAISY You mean talk just as if they were in this ground. Ok, but please turn around, turn around...
Hey buds below ... up is where to grow Up with which below can't compare with. Hurry - it's lovely up here...
Life down a hole takes an awful toll, What with not a soul there to share with. Hurry - it's lovely up here!
Wake up, bestir yourself, It's time that you disinter yourself You've got a spot to fill - a pot to fill And what a gift package of shower, sun and love You'll be met above everywhere with, Fondled and sniffed by millions who drift by, Life here is rosy - if you're a posy Hurry it's lovely here!
Hey, rhododend! Courage, little friend. Ev'rything'll end rhododandy. Hurry! It's lovely up here! Climb up geranium, it can't be fun subterran-ium On the exterior, it's cheerier RSVP peonies, pollinate the breeze, Make the queen of bees hot as brandy Push up azalea, don't be a failure!
Come up and see the hoot we're giving! Come up and see the grounds for living! Come poke your head out! Open up and spread out! Hurry it's lovely here!

Context & Lyrics


Fay tells her friend Teddy about how much she loves to flirt.
View Lyrics
If you wanna know why I've a roving eye When another cute guy passes there, I just wanna try before I buy The bargains and husbands ready-to-wear.
'Cause a man isn't like an expensive sweater Or department-store dress on the rack. If you wrap him up and take him home,
And then find something better, Nobody, but nobody, will take him back.
So I'm shopping around, Just looking, Where men are concerned, I'm just shopping around.
A girl must compare Men for wear and for tear Before she buys.
If she wants the best, Then she just has to test All kinds of merchandise.
So while I'm still young, I'm testing. Don't wanna get stung, No, sir, not little me.
There's no guarantee On a bridegroom-to-be, So if you want the best to be found, You gotta keep shopping, Leisurely shopping, Not buying, Just shopping around.

You don't buy the first pair of shoes from the clerk, You don't buy perfume till you spray it. You don't buy a clock till you're sure it will work, You don't buy a piano till you play it. A new vacuum cleaner may be a sensation, But ladies, always get a free trial demonstration.

So while there's a chance, I'm sampling, I'm taking romance In the smorgasbord way. From the last organ note, Love is all table d'hote,

So you must choose the best to be found. That's why I keep shopping, Leisurely shopping, Not buying, Just shopping around.

I look at all them pictures in the magazines Where they show you all the models in designer jeans All the girls are skinny are their hair is flat Why would we want to look like that?

We like the fashion don’ts and not the dos We read the comics and I throw away the news Cityfolks laugh at our K-mart clothes But we got our own style and we got out own nose

12 step programs make me yawn But I could 2 step all night long Pink flamingos on my lawn But, don’t call us trailer trash, we live in a mobile home

You can always keep me down on the farm Cause I’ve always like a man with a half tan arm A pickup truck with over-sized tires make me weak in the knees And sets my heart on fire

Cheese fries, wise guys, demolition derbies Stir fries, nice guys do nothing fer me Never cut out gourmet recipes, We prefer the cuisine at the tasty freeze

We like cars with lots of chrome We can make art out of Styrofoam We ain’t got no cellular phone But, don’t call us trailer trash, We live in a mobile home

Context & Lyrics


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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