On My Own from Les Miserables:

And now I'm all alone again, no where to go no one to turn to,
without a hope without a friend without a face to say hello too.
And now the night is near,
And I can make believe he's here.

Sometimes I walk alone at night
When everybody else is sleeping
I think of him and then I'm happy
With the company I'm keeping
The city goes to bed
And I can live inside my head.

On my own
Pretending he's beside me
All alone, I walk with him till morning
Without him
I feel his arms around me
And when I lose my way I close my eyes
And he has found me

In the rain the pavement shines like silver
All the lights are misty in the river
In the darkness, the trees are full of starlight
And all I see is him and me for ever and forever

And I know it's only in my mind
That I'm talking to myself and not to him
And although I know that he is blind
Still I say, there's a way for us

I love him
But when the night is over
He is gone, the river's just a river
Without him the world around me changes
The trees are bare and everywhere
The streets are full of strangers

I love him
But every day I'm learning
All my life I've only been pretending
Without me his world will go on turning
A world that's full of happiness
That I have never known!

I love him
I love him
I love him
But only on my own.

EDIT: Also, when quoting another lyric, and that lyric is really long, please try to shorten it
to just the title, or one of the verses. this is to save space and arm strength when
scrollin down to read other lyrics. kaythanks smile
A Little Fall of Rain from les Miserables:

EPONINE
Don't you fret, M'sieur Marius
I don't feel any pain
A little fall of rain
Can hardly hurt me now
You're here, that's all I need to know
And you will keep me safe
And you will keep me close
And rain will make the flowers grow.

MARIUS
But you will live, 'Ponine - dear God above,
If I could heal your wounds with words of love.

EPONINE
Just hold me now, and let it be.
Shelter me, comfort me

MARIUS
You would live a hundred years
If I could show you how
I won't desert you now...

EPONINE
The rain can't hurt me now
This rain will wash away what's past
And you will keep me safe
And you will keep me close
I'll sleep in your embrace at last.

The rain that brings you here
Is Heaven-blessed!
The skies begin to clear
And I'm at rest
A breath away from where you are
I've come home from so far


MARIUS(in counterpoint)
So don't you fret, M'sieur Marius Hush-a-bye, dear Eponine,
I don't feel any pain You won't feel any pain
A little fall of rain A little fall of rain
Can Hardly hurt me now Can hardly hurt you now
I'm here

That's all I need to know
And you will keep me safe I will stay with you
And you will keep me close Till you are sleeping


EPONINE
And rain...

MARIUS
And rain...

EPONINE
Will make the flowers...

MARIUS
Will make the flowers... grow...
I Am What I Am from La Cage Aux Folles!! heart

I am what I am
I am my own special creation.
So come take a look,
Give me the hook or the ovation.
It's my world that I want to take a little pride in,
My world, and it's not a place I have to hide in.
Life's not worth a damn,
'Til you can say, "Hey world, I am what I am."
I am what I am,
I don't want praise, I don't want pity.
I bang my own drum,
Some think it's noise, I think it's pretty.
And so what, if I love each feather and each spangle,
Why not try to see things from a diff'rent angle?
Your life is a sham 'til you can shout out loud
I am what I am!
I am what I am
And what I am needs no excuses.
I deal my own deck
Sometimes the ace, sometimes the deuces.
There's one life, and there's no return and no deposit;
One life, so it's time to open up your closet.
Life's not worth a damn 'til you can say,
"Hey world, I am what I am!"

I'm Alive- next to normal

Gabe:
I am what you want me to be,
And I'm your worst fear
You'll find it in me.
Come closer...
Come closer...

I am more than memory
I am what might be,
I am mystery.
You know me
So show me.

When I appear it's
Not so clear if
I'm a simple spirit
Or I'm flesh and blood...

But I'm alive,
I'm alive,
I am so alive,
And I feed on the fear
That's behind your eyes.

And I need you
To need me
It's no surprise
I'm alive...
So alive...
I'm alive.

I am flame and I am fire,
I am destruction,
Decay and desire
I'll hurt you...
I'll heal you...

I'm your wish,
Your dream come true,
And I am your darkest
Nightmare too
I've shown you...
I own you.

And though you made me,
You can't change me
I'm the perfect stranger
Who knows you too well.

And I'm alive,
I'm alive,
I am so alive,
And I'll tell you the truth
If you let me try.

You're alive,
I'm alive,
And I'll show why
I'm alive...
So alive...

I'm alive
I'm right behind you.
You say forget,
But I remind you.
You can try to hide,
You know that I will find you.
'Cause if you won't grieve me
You won't leave me behind...

Ah, ah, ah,
Whoa, oh, oh,
Whoa, oh, oh...
No, no, no
I'm alive,
I'm alive,
I am so alive,
If you climb on my back,
Then we both can fly.

If you try to deny me
I'll never die
I'm alive...
So alive...
I'm alive...
Yeah, yeah...
I'm alive...
I'm alive...
I'm alive...
I'm alive!

Part of Your World (Reprise) from The Little Mermaid:

What would I give,
If I could live where you are?
What would i pay,
To stay here beside you?
What would I do,
to see you smiling at me?

Where would we walk?
Where would we run?
If we could stay all day in the sun?
Just you and me,
And I could be,
Part of your World

I don't know when,
I don't know how,
But I know somethings starting right now
Watch and you'll see
Someday I'll be
Part of your world
The Phantom of the Opera from The Phantom of the Opera:

CHRISTINE
In sleep he sang to me
In dreams he came
That voice that calls to me and speaks my name
And do I dream again for now I find
The Phantom of the Opera is there
Inside my mind

PHANTOM
Sing once again with me
Our strange duet
My power over you grows stronger yet
And though you turn from me to glance behind
The Phantom of the Opera is there
Inside your mind

CHRISTINE
Those who have seen your face
Draw back in fear
I am the mask you wear

PHANTOM
It's me they hear...


BOTH
Your/My spirit and my/your voice in one combined
The Phantom of the Opera is there
Inside my/your mind

BACKGROUND
He�s there, the phantom of the opera!

CHRISTINE
He�s there, the phantom of the opera

PHANTOM
Sing, my Angel of Music
Sing, my Angel
Sing for me
Sing, my Angel!
Sing for me!

I have brought you
to the seat of sweet music's throne
to this kingdom where all must pay homage to music
music
You have come here,
for one purpose, and one alone
Since the moment I first heard you sing,
I have needed you with me,
to serve me, to sing,
for my music...
my music...

"I don't know how to disguise myself
my breath quickens and I feel uneasy
all because of you.
your familiar silhouette
Is my heart beating because I'm near you?
I want to attract you
I want to possess you
the speed of my heartbeat
feels so real that it's hard to calm down
Can you sense
that your strong aura has captivated me
there's no time to think about love logically

scared of losing you in the blink of an eye
I can taste the sweetness in just one breath
It's love that comes in haste
Can't stop the thoughts
yet it feels so certain
It's love that comes in haste
as if it were carefully planned out
or as if we were destined to meet
Use your sincere heart to protect this trust
"

it's called "Love in Haste"
(it's a Chinese Song,
these are the English lyrics)
One Short Day from Wicked:

ELPHABA:

TOURISTS:
One short day
In the Emerald City

Full of so much to do
Ev'ry way
That you look in the city
There's something exquisite
You'll want to visit
Before the day's through

ELPHABA:
There are buildings as tall as Quoxwood trees!

GALINDA:
Dress salons!

ELPHABA:
Libraries!

GALINDA:
Palaces!

ELPHABA:
Museums!

A hundred strong
There are wonders like I've never seen

GALINDA:
It's all grand

ELPHABA:
It is all green!

BOTH:
And I think we've found the place where we belong!
I wanna be
In this hoi polloi

ELPHABA:
So I'll be back for good someday

BOTH:
To make my life and make my way
But for today, we'll wander and enjoy:

ALL:
One short day
In the Emerald City
One short day
To have a lifetime of fun
One short day

BOTH:
And we're warning the city
Now that we're in here
You'll know we've been here

Before we are done!

GALINDA:
(spoken) Elphie - come on - we'll be late for Wizomania!

WIZOMANIA CHORUS:

Has all of Oz honeymooning?
Woo - oo -oo
Wizn't he wonderful?

"If Dreams Came True" from A Tale of Two Cities

Sung by James Barbour (Sydney Carton) and Simon Thomas (Charles Darnay)

Darnay:
I can't believe you're really here,
I can't believe you're really mine,
And all I ever want is you,
My dreams came true today.

Carton:
If dreams came true I might have been a better man,
If dreams came true you might have set me free,
But God is kind, for you he had a better plan,
And saved you from the pain of loving me,

And even if I'd not surrendered long ago,
All you can ever do for me you've done,
You've been the finest dream a man could ever know,
That this abandoned fight might have been won,

Old voices I had thought long since dead,
Whisper of another life I might have lead,
But daylight wakes dreams away,
Dreams that leave a sleeper where he lay.

Darnay:
We have so much, it isn't right,
To look at her, the world is new,
Another life that came from you,
Dreams still come true each day.

Carton:
But there's a part of you I can share,
Just like you, your child sees goodness everywhere,
When I look into her eyes, there's no disapproving glance,
Knowing her is an endless second chance,

If I could take that second chance,
If I could make my life anew,
If only dreams came true,

What are you weeping for,
I am not worth the tears you waste,
Not far from now I'll sink once more,
And even mock the heart that loves you chaste,

The low companions, low desires,
I scorn but yield to every day,
Make me unworthy of your caring,
Yet you still don't turn away,

I won't forget you wept for me!

If dreams came true I might have been a better man,
If dreams came true you might have set me free,
But God is kind, for you he has a better plan,
And maybe time will tell,

Darnay:
I won't forget,

Carton:
He has some plan for me,

Darnay:
How blessed I am.

And maybe then I'll see my dreams come true.
Another Day from the musical, Rent:

ROGER
Who do you think you are?
Barging in on me and my guitar
Little girl -- hey
The door is that way
You better go you know
The fire's out anyway
Take your powder -- take your candle
Your sweet whisper
I just can't handle
Well take your hair in the moonlight
Your brown eyes -- goodbye, goodnight
I should tell you I should tell you
I should tell you I should -- no!
Another time -- another place
Our temperature would climb
There'd be a long embrace
We'd do another dance
It'd be another play
Looking for romance?
Come back another day
Another day

MIMI
The heart may freeze or it can burn
The pain will ease if I can learn
There is no future
There is no past
I live this moment as my last
There's only us
There's only this
Forget regret
Or life is yours to miss
No other road
No other way
No day but today

ROGER
Excuse me if I'm off track
But if you're so wise
Then tell me -- why do you need smack?
Take your needle
Take your fancy prayer
And don't forget
Get the moonlight out of your hair
Long ago -- you might've lit up my heart
But the fire's dead -- ain't never ever gonna start
Another time -- another place
The words would only rhyme
We'd be in outer space
It'd be another song
We'd sing another way
You wanna prove me wrong?
Come back another day
Another day

MIMI
There's only yes
Only tonight
We must let go
To know what's right
No other course
No other way
No day but today
(Lights slowly fade up on the Life Support group.)

MIMI & OTHERS
I can't control
My destiny
I trust my soul
My only goal is just
To be
There's only now
There's only here
Give in to love
Or live in fear
No other path
No other way
No day but today...

ROGER
Control your temper
She doesn't see
Who says that there's a soul?
Just let me be...
Who do you think you are?
Barging in on me and my guitar
Little girl, hey
The door is that way
The fire's out anyway

ALL
No day but today
No day but today
No day but today
No day but today
No day but today

ROGER
Take your powder; take your candle
Take your brown eyes, your pretty smile, your silhouette
Another time, another place
Another rhyme, a warm embrace
Another dance, another way
Another chance, another day

The Riddle from The Scarlet Pimpernel:

See the moon slink down in the sky, darling
Let your fantasies fly, darling
Life is cold, and the game is old
Just see how virtue repays you
You turn and someone betrays you
Betray him first
And the game's reversed!
For we all are caught in the middle
Of one long treacherous riddle
Can I trust you? Should you trust me too?
We shamble on through this hell
Taking on more secrets to sell
Till there comes a day when we sell our souls away!
Through the mist your lover is beckoning
Comes that moment of reckoning
Faces change, even smiles grow strange
And we all have so many faces
The real self often erases
Enticing lies flicker through our eyes
Feel the terror draw ever nearer
The more you stare in the mirror
But hold your own
Face the wind alone
Reel on, love! Toughen your scars
Year by year we're falling like stars
Till there comes a day when we well our souls away!
Can I run to you? Are you true to me?
I'll do unto you as you do to me!
And we slowly learn someone has to burn
Better you than me!
Oh, every Judas once loved a Jesus
But finally treason will seize us
And only fools follow golden rules
We all are caught in the middle
Of one long treacherous riddle
Of who trusts who, maybe I'll trust you
But can you trust me?
Wait and see!
