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


I love you
Kay, ones I've seen:

Another Day and What You Own from Rent
b***h of Living and Totally ********] fro Spring Awakening
Chase the Morning from Repo
Sweet Transvestite from Rocky Horror
One of my favorite moments in Rent. Because it's adorable

Roger:
I should tell you, I'm disaster
I forget how to begin it
Mimi:
Let's just make this part go faster
I have yet to be in it

Roger:
I should tell you,
Mimi:
I should tell you
Roger:
I should tell you,
Both:
I should tell you

Mimi:
I should tell I blew the candle out
Just to get back in
Roger:
I'd forgotten how to smile
Until your candle burned my skin

Mimi:
I should tell you,
Roger:
I should tell you
Mimi:
I should tell you,
Both:
I should tell

Well, here we go, now we-
Mimi:
oh no
Roger:
I know, this something is- here goes
Mimi:
Here goes,
Roger:
guess so it's starting to- who knows?
Mimi:
Who knows?

Both
Who knows where? Who goes there?
Who knows? Here goes

Trusting desire, starting to learn
Walking through fire without a burn

Clinging a shoulder a leap begins
Stinging and older, asleep on pins

So here we go, now we-
Roger:
oh no
Mimi:
I know,
Roger:
oh no
Both:
Who knows where? Who goes there?

Here goes, here goes
Here goes, here goes
Here goes, here goes

HORTON
I've been guarding this clover
For over a week,
Getting laughed at
For thinking a dust speck can speak.
Well, let them all laugh
I'll try not to mind,
For I have found something
That they'll never find!

There are secrets on a leaf,
In the water, in the air,
Hidden planets, tiny worlds,
All invisible!
Not a person seems to know.
Not a person seems to care.
There is no one who believes a thing I say...

Well, I'm fairly certain
At one time or other,
Great thinkers all feel this way!

I'm alone in the universe.
So alone in the universe.
I've found magic but they don't see it

They all call me a lunatic.
Ok, call me a lunatic.
If I stand on my own, so be it.

'Cause I have wings.
Yes, I can fly
Around the moon
And far beyond the sky
And one day soon
I know there you'll be
One small voice in the universe
One true friend in the universe
Who believes in me...

JOJO
I'm alone in the universe.
So alone in the universe.
My own planets and stars
Are glowing.
Alone in the universe
No one notices anything.
Not one person is listening.
They don't have any way of knowing.
Nobody knows that

HORTON
I have wings

JOJO
I have wings.

HORTON
Yes, I can fly

JOJO
I can fly

BOTH
Around the moon
And far
Beyond the sky Beyond the sky
Well someday soon
You will hear my plea

HORTON
One small voice in the universe

JOJO
One true friend in the universe

BOTH
Please believe in me ...

HORTON
Hello...hello?

JOJO
Hello?

HORTON
Who's there?

JOJO
It's me, Jojo. The Mayor's son.

HORTON
I'm Horton. The Elephant

JOJO
Are you real, or are you a very large think?

HORTON
Oh, I'm real, all right. I would state that in ink.

JOJO
In my thinks, I imagine a lot of strange things
And I go to strange places, as if I had wings!
I love a good think!

HORTON
Well, for me that goes double.

JOJO
Sometimes my thinks are what get me in trouble.

HORTON
When you think, do you dream?

JOJO
In bright colors!

HORTON
Me too. And I go to strange places
Like Solla Sollew!

JOJO
When you think, do you think
You could fly to the stars?

HORTON
Little friend, no one else
Could have thinks such as ours!



HORTON
Yes, I have wings.

JOJO
I have wings

HORTON
And I can fly

JOJO
I can fly ...

HORTON
Around the moon

BOTH
And far beyond the sky Beyond the sky ...

HORTON
You called my name
And you set me free-
One small voice in the universe

JOJO
One true friend in the universe

BOTH
Who believes in me.

HORTON
Goodnight Jojo.

JOJO
Goodnight Horton. See you in Solla Sollew!
Schadenfreude // Avanue Q
GARY COLEMAN:
Right now you are down and out and feeling really crappy

NICKY:

GARY COLEMAN:
And when I see how sad you are
It sort of makes me...
Happy!

NICKY:
Happy?!

GARY COLEMAN:
Sorry, Nicky, human nature-
Nothing I can do!
It's...
Schadenfreude!
Making me feel glad that I'm not you.

NICKY:
Well that's not very nice, Gary!

GARY COLEMAN:
I didn't say it was nice! But everybody does it!
D'ja ever clap when a waitress falls and drops a tray of glasses?

GARY AND NICKY:
Schadenfreude!

GARY COLEMAN:
People taking pleasure in your pain!

NICKY:
Oh, Schadenfreude, huh? What's that, some kinda Nazi word?

GARY COLEMAN:
Yup! It's German for "happiness at the misfortune of others!"

NICKY:
"Happiness at the misfortune of others." That is German!

Schadenfreude!
Schadenfreude!
Schadenfreude!
Schadenfreude!

GARY COLEMAN:
The world needs people like you and me
Who've been knocked around by fate
'Cause when people see us, they don't want to be us
And that makes them feel great

NICKY:
Sure!
We provide a vital service to society!

GARY AND NICKY:
You and me!
Schadenfreude!
Making the world a better place...
Making the world a better place...
Making the world a better place...
To be!

Leavin's Not the Only Way to Go // Big River

Huck
Did the morning come too early
Was the night not long enough
Does a tear of hesitation
Fall on everything you touch
Well, it might just be a lesson
For the hasty heart to know
Maybe leavin's not the only way to go

Sally
Maybe lay and let your feelings grow accustomed to the dark
Maybe morning's light, you just might solve the problems of the heart
And it all might be a lesson for the hasty heart to know
Maybe leavin's not the only way to go

Jim and Sally
People reach new understandings all the lime
They take a second look, maybe change their minds
People reach new understandings everyday

Huck
Tell me not to reach and I'll go away

Jim, Huck, and Sally
Did the morning come too early
Was the night not long enough

Huck
Does a tear of hesitation
Fall on everything you touch

Jim, Huck, and Sally
Well, it might just be a lesson
For the hasty heart to know

Huck
Maybe leavin's not the only way to go

And a heart without a home is such a lonesome row to hoe
Maybe leavin's not the only way to go

There's a whole in the world like a great black pit
and the vermin of the world inhabit it
and its morals aren't worth what a pin can spit
and it goes by the name of London.
At the top of the hole sit the previlaged few
Making mock of the vermin in the lonely zoo
turning beauty to filth and greed...
I too have sailed the world and seen its wonders,
for the cruelty of men is as wonderous as Peru
but there's no place like London!

How d'you do,
I see you've met
my faithful handyman
He's just a little brought down because
when you knocked
He thought you were the candyman.

Don't get strung out
by the way that I look,
Don't judge a book by its cover

I'm not much of a man
by the light of day,
But by night I'm one hell of a lover

I'm just a Sweet Transvestite from
Transexual, Transylvania.

Let me show you around,
maybe play you a sound
You look like you're both pretty groovy
Or if you want something visual
that's not too abysmal
We could take in an old Steve Reeves movie.

I'm glad we caught you at home,
could we use your phone?
We're both in a bit of a hurry.
We'll just say where we are,
then go back to the car
We don't want to be any worry.

So you got caught with a flat,
well, how about that.
Well babies, don't you panic.
By the light of the night
it will all seem alright
I'll get you a satanic mechanic.

I'm just a Sweet Transvestite
from Transexual, Transylvania.

So why don't you stay for the night.
Or maybe a bite?
I could show you my favourite
obsession.
I've been making a man
with blond hair and a tan
And he's good for relieving my
tension

I'm just a Sweet Transvestite
from Transexual, Transylvania.

So come up to the lab.
And see what's on the slab.
I see you shiver with antici...
pation
But maybe the rain
isn't really to blame
So I'll remove the cause,
but not the symptom.

Omg, people. WHERE'S MORE NEXT TO NORMAL, OR THE LAST FIVE YEARS, OR EVEN CLASSICS LIKE WEST SIDE STORY?!

I'm also surprised nobody's posted anything from Sunset Boulevard, Gypsy, Grey Gardens, or Funny Girl. I guess I'll have to change that!

"As If We Never Said Goodbye" ~ Sunset Boulevard

I don't know why I'm frightened
I know my way around here
The cardboard trees, the painted seas, the sound here...
Yes, a world to rediscover
But I'm not in any hurry
And I need a moment

The whispered conversations in overcrowded hallways
The atmosphere is thrilling here as always
Feel the early morning madness
Feel the magic in the making
Why, everything's as if we never said goodbye

I've spent so many mornings just trying to resist you
I'm trembling now, you can't know how I've missed you
Missed the fairy tale adventure
In this ever spinning playground
We were young together

I'm coming out of make-up
The lights already burning
Not long until the cameras will start turning...
And the early morning madness
And the magic in the making
Yes, everything's as if we never said goodbye

I don't want to be alone
That's all in the past
This world's waited long enough
I've come home at last!

And this time will be bigger
And brighter than we knew it
So watch me fly, we all know I can do it...
Could I stop my hand from shaking?
Has there ever been a moment
With so much to live for?

The whispered conversations in overcrowded hallways
So much to say not just today but always...
We'll have early morning madness
We'll have magic in the making
Yes, everything's as if we never said goodbye
Yes, everything's as if we never said goodbye...
We taught the world new ways to dream!

Put your lovin' hand out, baby
I'm beggin'
Beggin', put your lovin' hand out, baby
Beggin' you, put your lovin' hand out, baby

Ridin' high when I was king
Played it hard and fast cause I had everything
Walked away, wonderin' then
But easy come and easy go and it would end

I'm beggin' you, won't you give your hand out, baby
Beggin', put your lovin' hand out, baby

I need you to understand
That I tried so hard to be a man
The kind of man you'd want in the end
Only then can I begin to live again

An empty shell I used to be
Shadow of my life is hangin' over me
Broken man that I don't know
Will leave it standing, devil's dancing with my soul

Beggin' you, won't you give your hand out, baby
Beggin', put your lovin' hand out, baby

I'm fightin' hard to hold my own
No, I just can't make it all alone
I'm holdin' on, I can't fall back
Now that big brass ring is a shade of black

I'm beggin' you, give your hand out, baby
Beggin', won't you put your lovin' hand out, baby

Beggin'

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!
Out Here on My Own - Fame

Sometimes I wonder
Where I've been
Who I am, do I fit in?
Make-believing is hard alone
Out here, on my own

We're always proving
Who we are
Always reaching
For that rising star
To guide me far
And shine me home
Out here on my own

When I'm down and feeling blue
I close my eyes so I can be with you
Oh, baby, be strong for me
Baby, belong to me
Help me through
Help me need you

Until the morning sun appears
Making light of all my fears
I dry the tears I've never shown
out here on my own

But when I'm down and feeling blue
I close my eyes so I can be with you
Oh, baby, be strong for me
Baby, belong to me
Help me through
Help me need you

Sometimes I wonder
Where I've been
Who I am, do I fit in?
I may not win
But I can't be thrown
Out here on my own
On my own

The most beautiful sound I ever heard:
Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria . . .
All the beautiful sounds of the world in a single word . .
Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria . . .
Maria!
I've just met a girl named Maria,
And suddenly that name
Will never be the same
To me.
Maria!
I've just kissed a girl named Maria,
And suddenly I've found
How wonderful a sound
Can be!
Maria!
Say it loud and there's music playing,
Say it soft and it's almost like praying.

Maria,
I'll never stop saying Maria!

The most beautiful sound I ever heard.
Maria
