Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Board Of Governors lyrics

[RECORDING SECRETARY (spoken)]
The Board of Governors of St. Jude’s Hospital is now in session
Sir Danvers Carew, KBE, Chairman
His Grace, The Bishop of Basingstoke
General Lord Glossop
The Right Honorable Sir Archibald Proops, Q.C
Lady Beaconsfield
Lord Savage
The Order of business will be conducted by the Secretary to the Board of Governors, Mr. Simon Stride

[STRIDE (spoken)
Proposition No. 929: Presented by Dr. Henry Jekyll

[GENERAL GLOSSOP] (overlapping)
Jekyll, you’re all talk an’ no result!…

[BISHOP OF BASINGSTOKE] (overlapping)
Forever asking us to endorse empty promises!

[SIR ARCHIBALD PROOPS] (overlapping)
What’s all the mystery? Much ado about nothing, if you ask me…

[LADY BEACONSFIELD] (overlapping)
You’re the laughingstock of your profession and polite society! The mad scientist!

[STRIDE]
Order! Order!

[JEKYLL]
Distinguished Governors
I have glimpsed the future
Seen miracles that stun the mind
And marvels only science can find
To shape tomorrow for mankind
And I can show them to you
If you wish me to

Friends, you’re aware there are two sides to each of us
Good and evil, compassion and hate
If we could extract all the evil from each of us
Think of the world that we could create
A world without anger or violence or strife
Where man wouldn’t kill anymore
A world of compassion, where passion for life
Would banish the madness of war

I’m close to finding the key to duality
Chemical Formulae which could – and would
Alter the patterns of man’s personality
Guiding him either to evil or good!
Weigh the potential, the great possibilities
Colleagues – dear friends, understand
We have a chance to make history here in our hand

Each of us is the embodiment of two distinct and opposing forces – Good and Evil – each fighting for supremacy inside us. If we could separate these two forces, we could control and ultimately eliminate all evil from mankind. My experiments with animals have led me to believe that the day is not far off when this separation will be possible. To achieve it, I must be allowed to try my formula on a living human being!

[BISHOP OF BASINGSTOKE]
And what if you’re right, Jekyll? And you do manage to separate Good from Evil… what happens to the evil?

[JEKYLL]
There are doomed, broken souls in a thousand asylums
I defy you to say you don’t care if you can
In the name of compassion and medical science
I can save many lives, if you give me one man

[BISHOP OF BASINGSTOKE]
I tell you now, the Church will never sanction it!

[VARIOUS ]
Sacrilege! Lunacy! Blasphemy! Heresy!

[SIR ARCHIBALD PROOPS]
You seem to be treading on dangerous ground
In legal terms, I’d say – extremely unsound!

[BISHOP OF BASINGSTOKE]
The whole thing’s un-christian, barbaric and odd!
You’re playing with fire when you start to play God!

[STRIDE]
The Bishop speaks for all of us
When he says you’re playing God!
There’s such a thing as ethics
Over which you ride rough-shod!
You’re a Doctor, not a saviour
Doctor Jekyll, for a start!
But I judge from your behaviour
You can’t tell the two apart!

[JEKYLL]
Dear Mr. Stride, I am simply a scientist
I have a code to which I remain true
I don’t presume to the stature of moralist
I leave pretension like that, Sir, to you!

[SIR DANVERS]
Henry, I’ve always encouraged your enterprise
And I’ve been hopeful that you would succeed!
But in the face of these powerful arguments
I see no choice but for you to concede!

[JEKYLL]
I know my fate is yours to choose
But if they win, the world would lose
I am on the brink of great success!
I beg you, Governors, you must say “Yes!”

[LADY BEACONSFIELD]
Doctor Jekyll, enough of this ranting, Sir!
This is a hospital, here to save lives!

[GOVERNORS]
Do you think we would let you play havoc
With all the high principles for which it strives?

Do you expect us to compromise all that we stand for
Indulging your dangerous games?
How many rules should we break for your dubious games?

[JEKYLL]
Can’t you see? I am not playing games!

Just give me the opportunity!

[GENERAL GLOSSOP]
This whole thing’s too bizarre!

[SIR DANVERS]
Open up your eyes and see!

[BISHOP OF BASINGSTOKE]
This man has gone too far!

[JEKYLL]
Unless you listen to me…

[STRIDE]
Doctor, please watch your tone!
Dammit, man, can’t you see?
You’re on your own!

[JEKYLL] (overlapping)
Fools!
You fools!
God damn your rules
Look at yourselves
Civilized men!
Why can’t you see?

[SIR DANVERS](overlapping)
Henry!

[PROOPS] (overlapping)
Jekyll!

[BISHOP OF BASINGSTOKE] (overlapping)
Blasphemy!

[GENERAL GLOSSOP] (overlapping)
Mutiny!

[LORD SAVAGE] (overlapping)
Damn me!

[LADY BEACONSFIELD] (overlapping)
Really!

[SIR DANVERS] (overlapping)
Henry!

[GOVERNERS]
(unintelligible yelling)

[STRIDE]
Order! Order!

[JEKYLL (spoken)]
If I ever needed further justification for my experiments, gentlemen, you have just provided it!

[JEKYLL (sung)
Just look at what has happened here!
Mix anger with a touch of fear
The danger’s all too crystal-clear
Just look at you!

Our darker side keeps breaking through
Observe it now – in me and you!
The evil that all men can do
Must be controlled!
I beg of you
I’ll show you all it can be done!

Here is a chance to take charge of our fate
Deep down you must know that tomorrow’s too late
One rule of life we cannot rearrange
The only thing constant is change
The only thing constant… is change

[STRIDE]
Distinguished colleagues, your verdict, please
All those is favour, say “Aye”
All those opposed, “Nay”

[GOVERNORS]
Nay! Nay! Nay! Nay!
Positively, absolutely nay!

[STRIDE]
Sir Danvers?

[SIR DANVERS]
Abstain

[STRIDE (spoken)]
By five votes to none – with one abstention – Proposition 929 is rejected. Thank you for your time, Dr. Jekyll

[SIR DANVERS (spoken)]
I am truly sorry, Henry

[JEKYLL]
All these precious years I’ve dedicated to this dream
Now with a word they claim the power to deny me
Who are they to judge what I am doing?
They know nothing of the endless possibilities I see

It’s ludicrous I’m bound by their decision
Seems vision is a word they’ve never heard!
If it mattered less, I’d treat it with derision It’s absurd!

And yet the fact remains
Those bastards hold the reins!

[STRIDE]
I’m so sorry, Doctor Jekyll
What a really rotten shame!
I so hope that what has happened
Won’t destroy your precious name!

Henry Jekyll, I despise you!
You have stolen the girl who should be my wife!
But there’ll come a day, not so far away
When you’ll not only pay
You will pay all your life!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Someone Like You lyrics

LUCY
I peer through windows, watch life go by …
Dream of tomorrow and wonder why …
The past is holding me, keeping life at bay.
I wander, lost in yesterday,
Wanting to fly,
But scared to try …
But if someone like you
Found someone like me,
Then suddenly, nothing would ever be the same.
My heart would take wing,
And I’d feel so alive,
If someone like you found me.

So many secrets I’d long to share!
All I have needed is someone there
To help me see a world
I’ve never seen before.
A love to open any door
To set me free,
So I can soar!

If someone like you
Found someone like me,
Then suddenly, nothing would ever be the same.
There’d be a new way to live,
A new life to love,
If someone like you found me …
Oh, if someone like you
Found someone like me,
Then suddenly, nothing would ever be the same.
My heart would take wing
And I’d feel so alive!

If someone like you loved me …
Loved me …
… loved me!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Reflections lyrics

JEKYLL
My two natures have memory in common.
I am aware that I am slowly losing hold
Of my original and better self…
And becoming absorbed into my second
And worse self.
Hyde, alone in the ranks of mankind, is pure evil.
As Jekyll, I can share in the pleasures and wickedness of Hyde.
I have more than a father’s interest in him,
And he has more than a son’s indifference towards me!
As Hyde, I care only for myself
And nothing for Jekyll!
As Jekyll, I know how Hyde
Fears my power to cut him off – by suicide!
And yet I find it in my heart to pity him
So wonderful is his love of life!
So wonderful is his love of life!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Prologue lyrics

[JEKYLL, spoken]
In each of us, there are two natures. If this primitive duality of man—good and evil—could be housed in separate identities, life would be relieved of all that is unbearable. It is the curse of mankind that these polar twins should be constantly struggling…

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Possessed lyrics

[JEKYLL]
Lisa, all my life I’ve been possessed
By one great all consuming quest
And that’s my driving reason to survive!

[LISA]
My love, you know
I live to see that dream come true
My world consists of it and you
Together we will keep the dream alive!

Henry, I adore you
Always have done, always will do
But I, too, have dreams!
Maybe not as grand as yours
Or hard to understand as yours
But nonetheless my dreams!
You and I together will be…

[JEKYLL]
Darling, try to see what I see!

[LISA]
Henry, please believe me
I see everything there is to see!

[JEKYLL]
Then what, by God, am I supposed to do?!

[LISA]
When this all began
You knew there’d be a price to pay
Too late now to turn away
You have come too far
I know you’ll find a way

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Once Upon A Dream (Lisa) lyrics

LISA
When this all began…
I knew there’d be a price…
Once upon a dream,
I was lost in love’s embrace.
There I found a perfect place,
Once upon a dream.

Once there was a time
Like no other time before.
Hope was still an open door
Once upon a dream.

And I was unafraid,
The dream was so exciting.
But now I see it fade
And I am here alone!

Once upon a dream
You were heaven sent to me.
Was it never meant to be?
Are you just a dream?
Could we begin again
Once upon a dream …

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – No One Must Ever Know lyrics

JEKYLL
October 7th. After midnight. The experiment is out of control. The transformations are starting to recur of their own accord. I cannot bear much more. The beast has taken a heavy toll, not only on me, who can yet be saved, but on others, who cannot. I remain convinced there is a way to counteract the effects of the formula, but I must have new chemicals for the antidote soon. Every day they say they will be delivered, but still they do not come! I dare not leave this place. I am dangerous – more dangerous than any wild animal stalking its prey…

No one must ever know
What I have done
For if anyone does
All my work is undone
And I must gain control
Of this monster inside
In the name of the people who’ve died!

But how to deal
With a foe I can’t see
Who whenever he wants
Takes possession of me?

In the battle of wills
That is raging inside,
Will I end up as me, or as Hyde?

Could it be?
Have I really lost my way?
Have I lost my mind?
Will I lose the day?

Am I a good man?
Am I a mad man?
It’s such a fine line
Between a good man and a bad…

Somehow I have to get back
To the place where my journey started.
Find the course I charted
When I first departed.

Somehow I have to hang on
To the vision that first inspired me,
To the hope that fired me
When the world admired me!
I’ll find a way back to the higher ground!
And see the view I saw before.
I’ll search the world until the answer’s found!
And then success will pound upon my door!

Somehow I have to rebuild
All the dreams that the wind have scattered.
From what fate has shattered –
I’ll retrieve what mattered!

Somehow I’ve got to go on
Till the evil has been defeated,
Till my work’s compleated –
I will not be cheated!

God! You must help me carry on!
When it seems all hope has gone,
I have got to carry on!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – No One Knows Who I Am lyrics

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

Once there were sweet possibilities
I could see
Just for me
Now all my dreams are just memories
Fated never to be

Time’s not a friend
Hurrying by
I wonder who am I

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 d***?
If no one knows who I am
Nobody knows
Not even you
No one knows who I am

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – In His Eyes lyrics

LISA:
I sit and watch the rain,
And see my tears run down the windowpane…
LUCY:
I sit and watch the sky.
And I can hear it breathe a sign…

LISA:
I think of him,
How we were…

LUCY:
And when I think of him,
Then I remember…

LUCY/LISA:
Remember…

LISA:
In his eyes I can see
Where my heart longs to be!

LUCY:
In his eyes I see a gentle glow,
And that’s where I’ll be safe, I know!

LISA:
Safe in his arms, close to his heart…

LUCY:
But I don’t know quite where to start…

LISA:
By looking in his eyes,
Will I see beyond tomorrow?

LUCY:
By looking in his eyes,
Will I see beyond the sorrow
That I feel?
LISA:
Will his eyes reveal to me
Promises or lies?

LUCY:
But he can’t conceal from me
The love in his eyes!

LISA:
I know their every look,
His eyes!

LUCY:
They’re like an open book,
His eyes!

LUCY/LISA:
But most of all the look
That hypnotized me!
LISA:
If I’m wise,
I will walk away,
And gladly…

LUCY:
But, sadly,
I’m not wise,
It’s hard to talk away
The mem’ries that you prize!

LISA:
Love is worth forgiving for!

LUCY:
Now I realize –

LUCY/LISA:
Everything worth living for
Is there, in his eyes!

LISA:
Love is worth forgiving for!
Now I realize –

LUCY:
Now I realize –

LUCY/LISA:
Everything worth living for
Is there, in his eyes!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – The World Has Gone Insane lyrics

JEKYLL
The world has gone insane!
And parasites are eating at my brain!
And nothing is the way it was before!
A pack o’ wolves is howling at my door!
I’m living in a non-stop nightmare!
Dead men’s dreams!
Filled with screaming pain!
Hurling me to mad extremes
In a world that’s gone insane!

The world has lost its head!
And every evil hour is filled with dread!
I’m floating on a lake – But upside down!
And when I try to breathe, I start to drown!
I cannot speak
As nameless ghosts and faceless ghouls
Bid me join the dead!
No one tells these gruesome fools
That the world has lost its head!

Fiendish creatures leave their graves to taunt me!
Old friends risen from the dead to haunt me!
God forsaken images that daunt me
Drowning in an endless flood of blood!

The world has lost its mind!
And everywhere I turn, I fear I’ll find
Some nightmare even worse than those I see!
Satanic demons closing in on me!
How can it be
That even though they see my plight,
Everyone is blind!
Night is day and day is night
In a world that’s lost its mind!
The world has gone berserk!
And hiding in the murk, new monsters lurk!
I see a sea of snakes upon the floor!
I see the reaper grinning at my door!
I scream in silence!

Bad is good and good is bad!
Sacred if profane!
And it’s wiser to be mad…

HYDE
In a world that’s gone insane!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – The Wedding Reception lyrics

JEKYLL
Mrs. Jekyll, may I have this dance?

LISA
Dr. Jekyll, you may have every dance.

UTTERSON
Henry, what is it?

JEKYLL
Don’t make a fuss… terrible pain… get me out of here… need to breathe.

UTTERSON
Oh, my God!

JEKYLL
Oh, God, what now?
Oh God, not now!
Help me somehow!
Please take the pain away!

Feel it fill me!
This will kill me!
Please, God, will me
Somehow to fight, I pray!

Oh, God, help me!
God have mercy!
Don’t let her see!
Not on our wedding day!

LISA
Henry?

HYDE
There is no Henry!… Only Hyde!

STRIDE
Look at this monster, Lisa!

HYDE
And what would you have done with her, Stride?
Put her in one of your Camden Town w****houses and rented her out a shilling a time?

STRIDE
D*** you, Jekyll – enough!

HYDE
Enough, indeed! End-of-game!
We seem to be married, my love!
Ready for our bridal bed, are you?

UTTERSON
Henry, stay back! Don’t touch her! I beg you – stop! Stop now!

LISA
Henry! Oh God Henry …
Henry, it’s me! If this is you, show me!

UTTERSON
Lisa, no! Stay back!
SIR DANVERS
No! Stop him!

HYDE
Stay! Or she dies!

LISA
Henry, I know you don’t want to hurt me! I know you can hear me… Let me go…
Henry, please… For us… Let me go… please…

JEKYLL
Do it, John. I beg you. Set me free.

UTTERSON
I can’t, Henry!

JEKYLL
We promised, remember?

UTTERSON
Forgive me.

LISA
NO!

HYDE / JEKYLL
Lisa…Lisa…Lisa…

LISA
Go to sleep, my tormented love.

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – The Girls Of The Night lyrics

NELLIE
We’re the pleasures of the nighttime that fade at dawn,
Selling treasures of the nighttime til night is gone.
And then when the party’s over, everybody’s gone away,
We stare at an empty day – what is there to do or say?
Nighttime is where we live,
Night is when we give everything we have to give.
Most lovers can rejoice, we don’t have a choice,
We just know we have to give.
That’s why the day can never be bright
For the girls of the night.

LUCY
Somehow I know there’s a someday that’s just for me.
Everybody has a someday – so why not me?

NELLIE
Lucy, do you really need to fill your heart with empty dreams?
You’ll always be what you are – stop chasing that distant star!

BOTH
Nighttime is where we live,
Night is when we give everything we have to give.
Most lovers can rejoice, we don’t have a choice,
We just know we have to give.
That’s why the day can never be bright
For the girls of the night.

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – The Engagement Party lyrics

[SIR DANVERS]
My dear Simon
You’re so gracious
To wish Lisa and Henry both well

[STRIDE]
Dear Sir Danvers
As you know, Sir
I wish Lisa the sun and the moon
But I have to confess that I wish Henry Jekyll in hell!

[UTTERSON]
(spoken) Henry, at last. What could possibly be more important than your own engagement party?

[JEKYLL]
John, I am close to a breakthrough discovery!
Something spectacular, something sublime!
Finally, a light in the darkness has come to me!
Now it is only a matter of time!

[DR HASTIE LANYON]
Henry Jekyll, you’re a devil
You have robbed us of London’s most lovely girl

[MR RICHARD ENFIELD]
I could turn to drink when I stop to think
Lisa’s marrying a doctor instead of an earl

[BOTH]
Poor girl!

[STRIDE ]
Doctor Jekyll, may I be the first to wish
You and your bride-to-be
Peace and prosperity?

[JEKYLL]
Mr. Stride, it’s most civil of you
To say that, as you do
With such patent sincerity!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Take Me As I Am lyrics

[JEKYLL]
Sometimes I see
Past the horizon
Sure of my way
Where I am going
But where’s the prize
I have my eyes on?
Where?
There is just no knowing!

And when despair
Tears me in two
Who can I turn to but you?
You know who I am
Take me as I am

[LISA]
Look in my eyes
Who do you see there?
Someone you know
Or just a stranger?
If you are wise
You will see me there
Love is the only danger

Love meaning me
Love meaning you
We’ll make our one dream come true
You know who I am
Take me as I am

[JEKYLL & LISA]
Though fate won’t always do
What we desire
Still we can set
The world on fire!

Give me your hand
Give me your heart

[JEKYLL]
Swear to me we’ll never part
You know who I am

[LISA]
You know who I am

[JEKYLL]
This is who I am

[LISA]
This is who I am

[JEKYLL & LISA]
Take me as I am

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Sympathy, Tenderness lyrics

LUCY
Sympathy, tenderness,
Warm as the summer
Offer me their embrace.
Friendliness, gentleness,
Strangers to my life –
They are there in his face.

Goodness and sweetness
And kindness
Abound in this place.

I am in love with
The things that I see in his face.
It’s a memory I know, time
Will never erase!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Streak Of Madness lyrics

JEKYLL
September 14th. 5:00 am. This is a strange, new, sweet sensation.
I am younger. lighter, happier in body and soul – twice as alive and tenfold more wicked – which intoxicates and delights me like wine – adding fearful new hardships to my desperate battle for success.
September 20th. 10:50 am. The experiments are now in their second week. The transformations are beyond imagining. Unspeakable nightmares besiege my senses. The most racking pains, and a horror of the spirit that exceeds all dreams of death.

September 25th. 8:00 pm. I have radically altered the balance of the formula, to contain and overcome the powerful and darker forces at work inside me. I am aware of my peril, and the need to control Hyde’s evil influence, which disappears within me like a stain of breath upon a mirror. He has found the perfect hiding place…

What streak of madness lies inside of me?
What is the truth my fears conceal?
What evil force makes Edward Hyde of me?
What darker side of me does this reveal?

Am I the man that I appear to be?
Or am I someone I don’t know?
Is there some monster drawing near to me?
Becoming clear to see?
Will what I fear to be be so?
What is this strange obsession
That’s tearing me apart?
Some strange deranged expression
Of what’s in my heart?
This is a deadly game I have to win!
This is a fight I dare not lose!
I have an adversary steeped in sin
Who wages war within
In ways I can’t begin to use…

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Transformation lyrics

JEKYLL
September 13th. 11:56 pm. I have started this alone… and I must finish it alone.
There is no longer a choice… I know that I must use myself as the subject of the experiment.
No, there is no choice!
I must put aside the fears I feel inside
There’s no place to hide.
So it comes to this
One last final chance that only I can take
Now everything I’ve fought for is at stake!

Like a warning light, glimmering in red,
Like crimson bloodshed, shimmering in red,
Beautiful and strange,
See the colours change before my eyes!
See how they dance and they sparkle
Like diamonds at night …
Leading out of the darkness and into the light!

11:58 pm. Consumed 10 centiliters of Formula HJ 7. Salty, bitter taste. Stings the tongue.
Warm in the gullet. Heat spreading strongly through my veins. A slight feeling of euphoria.
Light-headedness. No noticeable behavioral differences.

I must be wise,
I must try to a***yze each change in me,
Everything I see.
How will it be?
Will I see the world through different eyes?

Now the die is cast – nothing left to do,
Time alone can prove my theories true.
Show the world …

My God! – What’s this?

Something is happening – I can’t explain –
Something inside me, a breathtaking pain,
Devours and consumes me
And drives me insane!
Suddenly – uncontrolled –
Something is taking hold
Suddenly – agony –
Filling me – killing me!
Suddenly – out of breath –
What is this – is this death?

Suddenly – look at me!
Can it be?
Who is this creature that I see?!

HYDE
Free!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – This Is The Moment lyrics

[JEKYLL]
This the moment
This is the day
When I send all my doubts
And demons on their way
Every endeavor I have made ever
Is coming into play
Is here and now today

This is the moment
This is the time
When the momentum and the moment
Are in rhyme
Give me this moment
This precious chance
I’ll gather up my past
And make some sense at last

This is the moment
When all I’ve done
All of the dreaming
Scheming and screaming
Become one
This is the day
See it sparkle and shine
When all I’ve lived for
Becomes mine

For all these years
I’ve faced the world alone
And now the time has come
To prove to them I made it
On my own

This is the moment
My final test
Destiny beckoned
I never reckoned second best
I won’t look down
I must not fall
This is the moment
The sweetest moment
Of them all

This is the moment
Damn all the odds
This day or never
I’ll sit forever with the gods
When I look back
I will always recall
Moment for moment
This was the moment
The greatest moment
Of them all

Papa Roach – Born For Greatness lyrics

[Verse 1]
I am a man at war,
And I am fighting for
All of the broken people,
All of the people thrown overboard.
They always tried to shame us,
But they don’t speak the language.
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness.

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, somebody sound the alarm,
Oh, a fire was set in the dark.
Oh, it’s time that you know,
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness.

[Chorus]
It doesn’t matter if the world has gone mad,
If we just hold on, if we just hold on, yeah,
The sky is falling and the world has gone mad,
And we sing our songs, and we just hold on, yeah.
So if you’re running, stop running,
One life, one chance, start living.
Sing it louder just to let the world know,
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness.

[Post-Chorus]
We’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness.
We’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness.

[Verse 2]
They say that I’m reckless,
Because I’m relentless.
They spit on my face, and curse on my name,
They’re taking my life in vengeance.
Yeah, you can try and blame us,
And try to take what’s sacred,
But we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness.

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, somebody sound the alarm,
Oh, a fire was set in the dark.
Oh, it’s time that you know,
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness.

[Chorus]
It doesn’t matter if the world has gone mad,
If we just hold on, if we just hold on, yeah,
The sky is falling and the world has gone mad,
And we sing our songs, and we just hold on, yeah.
So if you’re running, stop running,
One life, one chance, start living.
Sing it louder just to let the world know,
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness.

[Post-Chorus]
We’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness.
We’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness.

[Hook]
Somebody sound the alarm,
It’s time that you know.

It doesn’t matter if the world has gone mad,
If we just hold on, if we just hold on, yeah,
Sing it louder just to let the world know.

[Bridge]
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness!
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness!
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness!

[Outro]
We were born for greatness.
No we’re not nameless, we’re not faceless,
We were born for greatness!

Andrew Lloyd Webber – Whistle Down The Wind – Tire Tracks And Broken Hearts lyrics

[Verse 1]
[Candy]
Another aimless day
[Amos]
Another useless night
[Candy]
I want peroxide hair
[Amos]
I want neon light
[Candy]
I’ve got a new life waiting, I can’t wait to begin it
[Candy & Amos]
The thing that gets me down with being young in this town
Is there’s no future in it
[Candy]
I want a fine perfume,
[Amos]
I want a blue Corvette
[Candy]
If there’s a slower death than living here and now
[Amos]
They haven’t found it yet
[Candy]
I need a man that knows, what I am really worth
[Amos]
Well I don’t give a damn about life after death
[Candy & Amos]
But I gotta get some proof that there’s a life after birth

[Chorus]
[Candy]
Tire tracks and broken hearts, that’s all were leaving behind
It doesn’t matter what we’re losing
It only matters what we’re going to find

[Candy & Amos]
Tire tracks and broken hearts. Lets get away from the past
So many ways to stay hungry baby, so many ways to go fast

[Verse 2]
[Candy]
I want a push up bra, I want some satin sheets
[Amos]
Oh give me some real rich food, I want some succulent treats
[Candy]
I want you by my side, and you’ll be all my own
[Amos]
Well I know what I want, half the time but I know
[Candy & Amos]
That I don’t wanna spend another minute alone

[Chorus]
Tire tracks and broken hearts, that’s all were leaving behind
It doesn’t matter what we’re losing
It only matters what were going to find

[Verse 3]
[Candy]
Those good girl never know what they’re missing
But us bad girl almost always do
[Amos]
And what were missing most are the real good times
[Candy & Amos]
I want em bad and I want em now
We were born going faster than the limits allow
I want em bad and I want em now
We were born going faster than the limits allow

[Chorus]
Tire tracks and broken hearts. Lets get away from the past
So many ways to stay hungry baby, so many ways to go fast

Tire tracks and broken hearts, that’s all were leaving behind
It doesn’t matter what we’re losing
It only matters what were going to find

Andrew Lloyd Webber – Whistle Down The Wind – The Vow lyrics

[Swallow]
I always preyed that you would come to save me
I believe You’ve returned for us at last

[Swallow, Brat & Poor Baby]
We’ll give you shelter from the storms and the world outside
You’ll be safe, this vow we make to you
We’ll never tell, this vow we make to you

Andrew Lloyd Webber – Whistle Down The Wind – The Vaults Of Heaven lyrics

[Full congregation]
The Keys to the vaults of heaven
May be buried somewhere in a prayer
The Keys to the vaults of heaven
May be heavy or lighter than air

Open up the vaults
Open up the vaults
We’ve got to find the keys

The nights have been growing darker
They’re darker now than sin
We’ll open the vaults of heaven
The treasures are there within

[Solo]
The keys to the vaults of heaven
May be seen in a pure child’s eyes
The keys to the vaults of heaven
May be heard in our desperate cries

[Solo & Children]
Open up the vaults
Open up the vaults
We’ve got to find the keys

The nights have been growing darker
Even darker now than sin
We’ll open the vaults of heaven
The glories are there within

[The Children]
One sweet day when the whole worlds ready
We’ll awake to a glorious sight

[Swallow & Children]
Our saviour returns to guide us
We’ll be gratefully blinded by light

[Full congregation]
We’ve got to find the keys
We’ve got to find the keys
To open up the vaults
The nights have been growing darker
So much darker now than sin
We’ll open the vaults of heaven
And the answers are there, within.

We’ve got to find the keys
We’ve got to find the keys
To open up the vaults
The nights have been growing darker
So much darker now than sin
We’ll open the vaults of heaven
And the answers are there, within.

[spoken]
“Our saviour will once again walk amongst us. He will return my friends. We
Have his promise. And those who fail to recognise him will burn in a fiery
Hell. Those who do see his glory will never be weak, nor sick, nor hungry, nor
Lonely again. No more pain, no more loss, no more sorrow”

Andrew Lloyd Webber – Whistle Down The Wind – The Hunt lyrics

[The Mob]
No matter what the outrage, no matter what the crime
No matter where he’s hiding, he’s running out of time
No matter what he’s seeing, no matter what he starts
We’ll tear him limb from limb, that’s all that matters
No matter what

Andrew Lloyd Webber – Whistle Down The Wind – Safe Haven lyrics

[Townspeople]
This was a safe haven,
Now it’s gone, dangers on it’s way

Evil can spread out,
Like a stain, and darken all the day

Boundaries wont protect you,
Locks and bolts won’t work the way they should

For the sake of all the children,
Track it down, boot it out for good

They say he killed and killed,
No mercy, no remorse, no shame

They say he’ll strike again,
No fear and no hope and no end

This was a safe haven,
Bring it back make it that again

Andrew Lloyd Webber – Whistle Down The Wind – Off Ramp Exit To Paradise lyrics

[Candy]
Somebody told me there’s an off ramp exit to paradise
Only time will tell if there’s an off ramp exit to paradise
Going anywhere has gotta be heaven, just staying here has got to be hell
I’m getting out of this joint, I’ll be strong and alone
No regrets maybe one, maybe two or three
If I had it to do over again, I’d do it to him before he did it to me
If I had it to do over again, I’d do it to them before they did it to me
Somebody told me there’s an off ramp exit to paradise
If I had it to do over again, I’d do it to him before he did it to me

Andrew Lloyd Webber – Whistle Down The Wind – No Matter What lyrics

[Charity]
I got a plastic flower, so it will never die
I got my Grandma’s hankie, if you ever need to cry

[Vikki]
I got a pretty bracelet

[La Vonne]
I got a mirror too

[La Vonne, Vikki & Charity]
I’m never gonna need em, I’ll give them all to you

[La Vonne, Vikki, Charity & Louise]
I’ll give you all I got to give, I guess that’s my good deed

[Elizabeth]
I just want to stay besides you, you’re the only love I need

[Louis]
I got a great big sea shell, you put it to your ear
Then you can hear the ocean, it’s like you’re really there

[Clarence]
I got a glass of firefly’s, they make amazing light

[Winston]
I’ve got a four leaf clover, I’ll bring it here tonight

[Brat]
And I will keep you safe and strong, and follow where you lead

[Swallow]
I’ll never leave your side now, were the only love you need

[The Children]
No matter what they tell us, no matter what they do
No matter what they teach us, what we believe is true
I can’t deny what I believe, I can’t be what I’m not
I know this loves forever, I know no matter what
I can’t deny what I believe, I can’t be what I’m not
I know this loves forever, that’s all that matters now no matter what

[Men]
]No matter what the outrage, no matter what the crime
No matter where he’s running, he’s running out of time

[Women]
This was a safe haven, now it’s gone
Dangers on its way

[Men]
No matter where he’s hiding no matter how he’s hurt

[Women]
Evil can spread out like a stain and darken all the day

[Men]
He’s better dead than captured, he’s just a speck of dirt

[Adult Chorus]
No matter what he’s scheming, no matter what he’s got
We’ll tear him limb from limb, that’s all that matters no matter what

[The Children]
If only tears were laughter, if only night was day
If only prayers were answered, then we would hear god say
No matter what they tell us, no matter what they do
No matter what they teach us, what we believe is true
I can’t deny what I believe, I cant be what I’m not
I know this loves forever, that’s all that matters now
No matter what!!!

[Adult Chorus]
You gotta wrestle with the devil
Wrestle with the devil in a heartbeat

[The Children]
Midnight is clear, our saviour is here
He’s gonna guard each boy and girl
No hunger or thirst, the last will be first
The night that children rule the world,
When children rule the world, tonight, when children rule the world
When children rule the world, tonight, when children rule the world

Andrew Lloyd Webber – Whistle Down The Wind – Wrestle With The Devil lyrics

[Earl]
You gotta be prepared to wrestle
Wrestle with the devil in a heartbeat
Before the moment is past
[Townspeople]
You gotta be prepared, you gotta be prepared
To wrestle with the devil in a heartbeat
Or it could be your very last
[Snake Preacher]

(Spoken)
And the Lord said “They shall take up serpents”, And those who believe will be saved. And those whose faith is weak will perish with the devil. Test your faith! Put your life in the hands of the Lord. Who amongst you will take up serpents?

You all know about the Devil, don’t ya, brethren, I bet he’s got you scared
Cause you can feel it in your hearts and bones, he’s in this very town
And he wants your souls now, you gotta be prepared
[Townspeople]
You gotta be prepared
[Snake Preacher]
You gotta be prepared, to wrestle with the devil in a heartbeat
Before the moment is past
You all know about the Devil, don’t ya, don’t ya
You don’t think that you’ll be spared
He’s gonna tempt you with a life of sin, tease you with his flashing grin
But we’ve got the lord here, (oh yes) we’ve got the truth now (oh yes)
Yes you’ve got the mighty, (oh yes) you’ve got to be prepared
[Townspeople]
No matter what you do, he’s coming after you
So wrestle with the devil till you break him
Until he’s gone from your head
You gotta face the test
[Snake Preacher]
The devil doesn’t rest
[Townspeople]
So wrestle with the devil till you take him, until he’s finally, cold and dead
[Snake Preacher]
He’s there in the reflections on the river skimming by
He’s there in the clouds as they blacken the sky
He’s there in your bedroom, He can crawl into your dreams
[Person 1]
He’s anything he want’s to be, but he’s never what he seems
[Person 2]
He’s there in the foreboding, you feel in your bones
[Person 3]
He’s there in the graveyard, chipping names on the stones
[Townspeople]
He’s there in your memories, turning good times into bad
He’s there in the future, that you wish you never had

No matter what you do, he’s coming after you
So wrestle with the devil till you break him
Until he’s gone from your head

You gotta be a success, the devil doesn’t rest
So wrestle with the devil till you break him
Until he’s finally cold and dead
[Snake Preacher]
You’ll see him in the movies, brother thinking about sex and guzzling gin
You’ll see him in the courthouse sister trying to make legal every horrible sin
You’ll see him in the churches brother, acting like he loves the lord above
You’ll see him in your families Sister! Better take a look at who you love
[Candy]
You all know about the Devil, don’t ya, don’t ya
You all know, he’s lying in wait
He’s lying in more ways than one, every time he uses you
Breaks a promise, and breaks your heart
And that’s why love turns to hate
Are you gonna save me Amos? One more chance to save my life
Show me that you care
Don’t you think it’s time that you grew up, such a gullible, stupid girl
A little Angel? a little tramp
Your secrets out and I don’t care
[Amos]
I swear I didn’t tell, I’d rather go to hell
I made a vow, you know I’d never break it
I’d never lie at all to you
[Candy]
How many goddam vows, have you taken up to now
Have you kept a single one? oh forget it
Your pathetic, and that’s the only truth

How can you be so blind? Didn’t anybody know?
The Devils been here all the time, he’s waiting
Playing, hide and seek
He’s up in Swallow’s barn, he’s dangerous and armed
He’s got a gun, he’s not afraid to use it
The killer is strong and you are all so weak
[Sheriff]
It’s time that this was over
[A Local]
Nerves are raw
[Townspeople]
Hearts begin to pound
[Sheriff]
Bring him in, hunt him down
[Sheriff & Townspeople]
A little bit of slaughter is justified to bring us back our town

Andrew Lloyd Webber – Whistle Down The Wind – Whistle Down The Wind lyrics

[Verse 1]
Let your voices carry
Drown out all the rain
Light a patch of darkness
Treacherous and scary

[Chorus]
Howl at the stars
Whisper when you’re sleeping
I’ll be there to hold you
I’ll be there to stop
The chills and all the weeping
Make it clear and strong
So the whole night long
Every signal that you send
Until the very end
[e=38396]I will not abandon you
My precious friend[/e]

[Verse 2]
So try and stem the tide
Then you’ll raise a banner
Send a flare up in the sky
Try to burn a torch
And try to build a bonfire
Every signal that you send
Until the very end, I’m there
So whistle down the wind
For I have always been right there

[Chorus]
Howl at the stars
Whisper when you’re sleeping
I’ll be there to hold you
I’ll be there to stop
The chills and all the weeping
Make it clear and strong
So the whole night long
Every signal that you send
Until the very end
I will not abandon you
My precious friend

[Verse 3]
So whistle down the wind
Let your voices carry
Drown out all the rain
Light a patch of darkness
Treacherous and scary
Every signal that you send
Until the very end, I’m there

[Outro]
So whistle down the wind
For I have always been right there

Andrew Lloyd Webber – Whistle Down The Wind – When Children Rule The World lyrics

We’ve got to keep this secret, we gotta do this right
If we don’t screw up we could save his life
Then this could be the night, When children rule the world
This could be the night, the night, when children rule the world

Doves and kings and shepherds and wisemen came together,
Followed the star
They all gathered down in a manger, they came from so very far

Were glad it’s clear, our saviour is here
He’s gonna guard each boy and girl
No hunger or thirst, the last will be first
The night that children rule the world,
When children rule the world, tonight, when children rule the world

All our greatest wishes are granted, let us sing, let innocence reign
All our prayers are finally answered, blessed and free of all pain

Towers of fire, rise ever higher
Magical flags will be unfurled
To Jesus our god, the young are the strong
The night that children rule the world
When children rule the world, tonight, when children rule the world

Towers of fire, rise ever higher
Magical flags will be unfurled
To Jesus our god, the young are the strong
The night that children rule the world

When children rule the world, tonight, when children rule the world
When children rule the world, tonight, when children rule the world

Andrew Lloyd Webber – Whistle Down The Wind – Try Not To Be Afraid lyrics

[The Man]
Try not to be afraid, so many things can happen
Nothings ever quite as bad as it might appear
I’ll give you all I got, You know I can protect you
And try and stop you shedding even one more single tear

[Swallow]
Shelter from the storms

[The Man]
Refuge from the world outside

[Swallow]
Safety from the dangers

[The Man]
Escape from all the disappointments that time has passed

[Swallow & The Man]
Healing of the wounds, the banishing of nightmares

[The Man]
An end to endless tortured nights untroubled sleep at last

[The Man & Swallow]
This is the vow I’ve made, I’ll see it all come true now
And all you have to do for me, Try not to be afraid

[The Man]
I swear I’ll be with you, this promise that I’ve made you

[The Man & Swallow]
You will always be with me

[The Man]
Think of every thing you’ve got, try not to be afraid

[Swallow]
Try not to be afraid

[The Man & Swallow]
Try not to be afraid
