Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – Alive lyrics

HYDE:
What is this feeling
Of power and drive
I’ve never known?
I feel alive!

Where does this feeling
Of power derive,
Making me know
Why I’m alive?

Like the night, it’s a secret,
Sinister dark and unknown.
I do not know what I seek,
Yet I’ll seek it alone!

I have a thirst
That I cannot deprive.
Never have I felt so alive!

There is no battle
I couldn’t survive –
Feeling like this –
Feeling alive!

Like the moon, an enigma,
Lost and alone in the night
Damned by some heavenly stigma,
But blazing with light!

It’s the feeling of being alive!
Filled with evil, but truly alive!
It’s the truth that cannot be denied!
It’s the feeling of being
Edward Hyde!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – Your Work- And Nothing More lyrics

UTTERSON:
You have your work
And nothing more!
You are possessed –
What is your demon?

You’ve never been
This way before –
Where is the fire
You built your dream on?

There’s something strange,
There’s something wrong.
I see a change –
It’s like when hope dies.

I, who have known
You for so long,
I see the pain
In your eyes!

UTTERSON: JEKYLL:
There was a time Have
You lived your life, I
And no one lived Become –
The way that you did!
You had a plan, My work
You chose a wife, And nothing
You saw the world More?
As very few did!

You had it all – I
The overall! – Know
You seemed to know That’s
Just what to live for! Not

But now, it seems, What
You don’t at all, I’m
You have you work – Living
Nothing more!… For!…

EMMA:
Father, you know
Henry won’t just walk away.
The only way he knows
Is straight ahead!

SIR DANVERS
Emma, you’ve not heard
A single word I’ve said!
My fear is, he’s in over his head.
He could lose control,
And that I dread

There has been talk:
They say he’s gone too far.
He’s locked himself away
In his own world,
Pursuing the insanity -!

EMMA:
It is his work!

SIR DANVERS:
It’s more than work –
He is obsessed!
The man is driven!

EMMA:
Just give him time,
I ask no more.
His work’s a crime
To be forgiven!

SIR DANVERS: EMMA:
There’s something strange. Just give him time
Unless I’m blind! I ask no more
I see a change
Of a bizarre kind!

EMMA: SIR DANVERS:
There’s not at all! He’s chasing dreams
Don’t be unkind. He’ll never find
The problem’s all
In your mind!

SIR DANVERS: UTTERSON: JEKYLL:
He has his work This increasing Father…
And nothing more. Isolation only adds
He is obsessed! To your frustration
The man is driven! And it could
Endanger
Your
Career

EMMA: JEKYLL:
Just give him time, Who are they
I ask no more. To judge what I
His work’s a crime Am doing they
To be forgiven! Know nothing
Of the
Possibilities I see.

SIR DANVERS: UTTERSON: JEKYLL:
He’s chasing Time to awaken And I will
Dreams Before it’s too Prove, if I’m
He’ll never find! Late Ever
I see a change Permitted to
Of a bizarre kind

EMMA: UTTERSON: JEKYLL:
There’s not at all! Before you forever Things are not
Don’t be unkind. Determine your fate Wrong just
Problem’s all Because they
In your mind! Are new!

EMMA: SIR DANVERS/UTTERSON: JEKYLL: ENSEMBLE:
Still, I pray, Dear, I pray, I pray If you live around
Every day, Every day, I Here[?] lots of people I
Henry may Henry may May Fear will make
Find his way. Find his way! Find Promises

Every day, Every day. Pray That it’s all a
Henry may You two may I Façade
Find his way. Find your way! May
I pray I pray Find
He may find You may find My
His way! Your way! Way!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – A New Life lyrics

LUCY:
A New Life –
What I wouldn’t give
To have a new life!
One thing I have learned
As I go through life:
Nothing is for free
Along the way!

A new start –
That’s the thing I need,
To give me new heart –
Half a chance in life
To find a new part,
Just a simple role
That I can play.

A new hope –
Something to convince me
To renew hope!
A new day,
Bright enough
To help me find my way!

A new chance –
One that maybe has
A touch of romance.
Where can it be,
The chance for me?

A new dream –
I have one I know
That very few dream!
I would like to see
That overdue dream –
Even though
It never may come true!
A new love –
Though I know there’s no
Such thing as true love –
Even so,
Although I never knew love,
Still I feel that
One dream is my due!

A new world –
This one thing I want
To ask of you, world –
Once! – Before it’s time
To say adieu, world!
One sweet chance to
Prove the cynics wrong!

A new life –
More and more, I’m sure,
As I go through life,
Just to play the game -,
And to pursue life –
Just to share its pleasures,
And belong! –
That’s what I’ve been here for,
All along!
Each day’s
A brand new life!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – First Transformation lyrics

JEKYLL:
I must be wise,
I must try to analyse
Each change in me,
Everything I see –
How will it be?
Will I see the world
Through different eyes?

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!

Three fifty-eight a.m. It is done. I have injected 5 centilitres of the newly fused formula.
A slight feeling of euphoria. Light-headedness. No noticeable behavioural differences.

Now the die is cast!
Nothing left to do…
Time along can prove
My theories true…
Show the world…

Dear God! What is this?

Something is happening –
I can’t explain –
Something inside me –
A breath taking 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?

Changing into Hyde:
Suddenly –
Look at me! –
Can it be?
Who is this
Creature
That I see?
Free!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – Finale lyrics

Emma:
You are free now …
You’re with me now …
Where you’ll always be …

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – Facade – Reprise 4 lyrics

ENSEMBLE:
There’s a beast at the door
And he’s wild and free!
But we don’t let him in,
‘Cause we don’t want to see –
What is lurking right behind the façade!

Man is not one, but two!
He is evil and good!
And he walks the fine line
That he’d cross, if he could,
He’s just waiting…!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – Facade – Reprise 3 lyrics

THE SPIDER WITH ENSEMBLE:
If you live around here,
Lotsa people, I fear,
Will make promises
They will not honour, my dear,
An’ the truth is,
You end up getting scarred!

There’s a beast at the door,
An’ he’s wild an’ he’s free,
But we don’t let him in,
‘Cause we don’t want to see
What is lurking
Right behind the façade!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – Facade – Reprise 2 lyrics

ENSEMBLE:
‘Ere in London East End,
It’s the pit of the Earth –
Where you won’t find a friend –
Where yer life ‘as no worth –
Death is waiting –
Fate is makin’ yer card.

You got one chance in five –
They’re the odds you must beat
If you wanna survive –
So be fast on yer feet!
Life’s ‘ard ‘ere –
It’s the devil’s backyard!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – Facade – Reprise 1 lyrics

ENSEMBLE
If you live around here,
You need cash in the bank,
‘Cause the houses ’round here
Are all flashy and swank,
An’ the front bit
Is what’s called a façade!

If you live around here,
You need lots of panache!
If you live in town, dear,
Then you must cut a dash!
‘Tisn’t hard, dear,
To create a façade!

Here tonight it’s festive –
But the guests are getting restive –
‘Cause the guest of honour’s
Causing a dilemma!

Doctor Jekyll Tardy
For his own engagement party –
His betrothal
To sir Danvers’ daughter, Emma!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – Facade lyrics

ENSEMBLE:
There’s a face that we wear
In the cold light of day –
It’s society’s mask,
It’s society’s way,
And the truth is
That it’s all a façade!

There’s a face that we hide
Till the nighttime appears,
And what’s hiding inside,
Behind all of our fears,
Is our true self,
Locked inside the façade!

Every day
People, in their own sweet way,
Like to add a coat of paint,
And be what they ain’t!

That’s how our little –
Game is played,
Livin’ like a masquerade
Actin’ a bizarre charade –
While playing the saint!

But there’s one thing I know,
And I know it for sure:
This disease that we’ve got
Has got no ready cure!
And I’m certain
Life is terribly hard –
When your life’s a façade!

Look around you!
I have found
You cannot tell, by lookin’ at the surface,
What is lurkin’ there beneath it!
See that face!
Now, I’m prepared to bet you,
What you see’s not what you get –
‘Cause man’s a master of deceit !

So, what is the sinister secret?
The lie he will tell you is true? –
It’s that each man you meet
In the street
Isn’t one man but two!

Nearly everyone you see –
Like him an’ her,
An’ you, an’ me –
Pretends to be
A pillar of society –
A model for propriety –
Sobriety
An’ piety –
Who shudders at the thought
Of notoriety!

The ladies an’ gents ‘ere before you –
Which none of ’em ever admits –
May ‘ave saintly looks –
But they’re sinners an’ crooks!

Hypocrites!
Hypocrites!

There are preachers who kill!
There are killers who preach!
There are teachers who lie!
There are liars who teach!
Take yer pick, dear –
“Cause it’s all a façade!

If we’re not one, but two,
Are we evil or good?
Do we walk the fine line –
That we’d cross if we could?
Are we waiting –
To break through the façade?

One or two
Might look kinda well-to-do –
Hah! They’re bad as me an’ you,
Right down they’re boots!

I’m inclined to think –
Half mankind
Thinks the other half is blind!
Wouldn’t be surprise to find –
They’re all in cahoots!

At the end of the day,
They don’t mean what they say,
They don’t say what they mean,
They don’t ever come clean –
And the answer –
Is it’s all a façade!
Is it’s all a façade!

Man is not one, but two,
He is evil and good,
An’ he walks the fine line
We’d all cross if we could!

It’s a nightmare –
We can never discard –
So we stay on our guard –
Though we love the façade –
What’s behind the façade?
Look behind the façade!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – Emma’s Reason lyrics

STRIDE:
Emma Carew,
Can this be you?
What kind of man
Is this you’ve taken?

Can you not see
The kind of life
That this would be?
You are mistaken!
Time to awaken,
Before it’s too late,
Before you forever
Determine your fate!

EMMA:
But, Simon, you knew
I had to be free.
What I choose to do
Is decided by me!

From the day my mother died,
My father , full of good intentions,
Treated me as though I were a young child.
Maybe his idea was just to wait
Until I grew up,
And then look at me
And hope that I’d be her.

It’s easy to accept that
From a father
He’d rather
Things remained the way they were.
But when it comes to marriage,
I must pick whom I prefer!
I am not the weak young thing
You’re seeking, Simon,
Someone seventeen, obedient and sweet.
I am not the protégée
To waste your time on.
I’m complete –
In Henry’s eyes I see
What I am meant to be! –

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – No One Knows Who I Am 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…

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – Lost In The Darkness Reprise/Confrontation lyrics

JEKYLL:
Lost in the darkness,
Silence surrounds you.
Once there was morning,
Now endless night.

I will find the answer.
I’ll never desert you –
I promise you this –
Till the day that I…

HYDE:
Do you really think
That I would ever let you go?
Do you think I’d ever set you free?
If you do, I’m sad to say,
It simply isn’t so.
You will never get away from me!

JEKYLL:
All that you are
Is a face in the mirror!
I close my eyes and you disappear!

HYDE:
I’m what you face
When you face in the mirror!
Long as you live, I will still be here!

JEKYLL:
All that you are
Is the end of a nightmare!
All that you are is a dying scream!
After tonight,
I shall end this demon’s dream!

HYDE:
This is not a dream, my friend –
And it will never end!
This one is the nightmare that goes on!
Hyde is here to stay,
No matter what you may pretend –
And I’ll flourish long after you’re gone!

JEKYLL:
Soon you will die,
And my silence will hide you!
You cannot choose but to lose control.

HYDE:
You can’t control me!
I live deep inside you!
Each day you’ll feel me devour your soul!

JEKYLL:
I don’t need you to survive,
As you need me!
I’ll become whole
As you dance with death!
And I’ll rejoice
As you breathe your final breath!

HYDE:
I’ll live inside you forever!

JEKYLL:
No!

HYDE:
With Satan himself by my side!

JEKYLL:
No!

HYDE:
And I know that, now and forever,
They’ll never be able to separate
Jekyll from Hyde

JEKYLL:
Can’t you see
It’s over now?
It’s time to die!

HYDE:
No, not I!
Only you!

JEKYLL:
If I die,
You die, too!

HYDE:
You die in me and I’ll be you!

JEKYLL:
Damn you, Hyde!
Set me free!

HYDE:
Can’t you see?
You are me!

JEKYLL:
No!
Deep inside-!

HYDE:
I am you!
You are Hyde!

JEKYLL:
No – Never!

HYDE:
Yes, forever!

JEKYLL:
Good damn you, Hyde!
You take all your evil deeds,
And you rot in hell!

HYDE:
I’ll see you there, Jekyll!

JEKYLL:
No! No! No! Never!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – Lost In The Darkness lyrics

JEKYLL:
Lost in the darkness,
Silence surrounds you.
Once there was morning,
Now endless night.

If I could reach you,
I’d guide you and teach you
To walk from the darkness
Back into the light.

Deep in your silence,
Please try to hear me;
I’ll keep you near me
Till night passes by.

I will find the answer.
I’ll never desert you –
I promise you this –
Till the day that I die…

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – Letting Go lyrics

SIR DANVERS:
Emma, don’t you understand!
It’s you I am concerned for.

EMMA:
Father, don’t be!
You should be concerned for him!
He’s the one in need!

SIR DANVERS:
I am only trying to protect you!
What else would you have your father do?
I think I would die,
If any harm should come to you.

I’m scared, my child,
Because I’m going to lose you.
I find it very hard,
To let you go!

EMMA:
Father,
If you try to,
You could never lose me!

Darling father,
I still love you,
More than you will ever know!
But if we want our love to grow –

SIR DANVERS:
I know, in time, I have to let you go.

EMMA & SIR DANVERS:
We mustn’t be afraid of letting go…

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – In His Eyes lyrics

EMMA:
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…

EMMA:
I think of him,
How we were…

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

LUCY/EMMA:
Remember…

EMMA:
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!

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

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

EMMA:
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?

EMMA:
Will his eyes reveal to me
Promises or lies?

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

EMMA:
I know their every look,
His eyes!

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

LUCY/EMMA:
But most of all the look
That hypnotized me!

EMMA:
If I’m wise,
I will walk away,
And gladly…

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

EMMA:
Love is worth forgiving for!

LUCY:
Now I realize –

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

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

LUCY:
Now I realize –

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

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – I Must Go On lyrics

JEKYLL:
I must go on
With the work I’m committed to –
How can I not,
When my theories are true?
And I will prove,
If I’m ever permitted to,
Things are not wrong,
Just because they are new!

EMMA:
Henry, I adore,
Always have done,
Always will do,
And your dreams are mine!

I will always understand.
However hard the path you’ve planned,
Our lives will intertwine…

JEKYLL:
Who knows where my work will lead me?

EMMA:
Nowhere where you will not need me!

JEKYLL:
Emma, please I beg you, heed me!

EMMA:
Just don’t leave me on my own!

JEKYLL:
The only thing I fear is the unknown…

EMMA:
When this all began,
We knew there’d be a price to pay!
Too late now to turn away –
We have come too far!
I know we’ll find a way…

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – Good ‘N’ Evil lyrics

LUCY:
Good and evil –
And their merits –
Men have argued through history –
As well they should!
My philosophy
Any child can see –
“Good is evil –
And therefore
All evil is good”

How do you tell evil from good?
Evil does well – good not so good!
Evil’s the one that is free everywhere –
Good is the one that they sell!
You must decide which is heaven –
Which is hell!

Good maintain evil’s a curse! –
But it is plain good’s even worse!
Evil’s the one that they tell you to shun –
Good is the one to embrace
Say that and Satan will laugh right in your face!

The battle between good and evil
Goes back to the start –
Adam and Eve and the apple tore Eden apart!
The key thing about good ‘n’ evil –
Each man has to choose! –
Heaven ‘n’ hell
Is a helluva gamble to lose! –
But as I peruse
This world we abuse –
It’s hell that we choose –
And heaven must lose!

Evil is everywhere –
Good doesn’t have a prayer!
Good is commendable –
Evil’s dependable!
Evil is viable
Good’s unreliable!
Good may be thankable!
Evil is bankable!

Evil’s for me – you can have good!
Doesn’t suit me to be Robin Hood!
S’easier by far, from the way that things are,
To remain good ‘n’ evil
Than try to be evil and good!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – 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.

EMMA:
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 that one dream come true!
You know who I am…
Take me as I am.

JEKYLL & EMMA:
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!

EMMA:
We’ll never part!

JEKYLL:
You know who I am.

EMMA:
You know who I am.

JEKYLL:
This is who I am.

EMMA:
This is who I am.

JEKYLL & EMMA:
Take me as I am…

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – 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: The Original Broadway Production – Someone Like You lyrics

LUCY:
I peer through windows,
Watch life go by,
Dream of tomorrow,
And wondered why

The past was holding me,
Keeping life at bay,
I wandered lost in yesterday,
Wanting to fly –
But scared to try.

But someone like you
Found someone like me,
Then suddenly
Nothing is the same!

My hearts taken wing,
And I feel so alive –
If someone like you
Found me!

Its like you took my dreams
Made each one real,
You reached inside of me
And made me feel

And now I see a world
I’ve never seen before –
Your love to open every door,
You set me free,
Now I can soar!

For someone like you
Found someone like me,
You touched my heart
Nothing is the same!

There is a new way to live,
A new way to love,
Cause someone like you
Found me!

Oh, someone like you
Found someone like me,
Then suddenly
Nothing will ever be the same!

My hearts taken wing,
And I feel so alive –
If someone like you
Loved me…
Loved me!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – Pursue The Truth lyrics

JEKYLL:
How can I pursue the truth,
When they can block each step I take?

UTTERSON:
Henry, you have come too far –
Remember what you have at stake!

JEKYLL:
John, I know I’m right!
I must let my vision guide me!
I’m so weary of the fight!
There’s so little left inside me!

UTTERSON:
If you know that you are right,
Then you’ve got to see it through,
You’ve got to see it through!

JEKYLL:
Seven years ago,
I started out on this alone,
And it’s alone I’ll see it through
To its conclusion!

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!

UTTERSON:
Seems vision
Is a word
They never heard!

JEKYLL:
If it mattered less,
I’d treat them with derision –
It’s absurd!

UTTERSON:
And yet, the fact remains,
Those bastards hold the reins!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – Once Upon A Dream lyrics

EMMA:
When it’s all began,
We 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?
Was it just a dream?

Could we begin again!…
Once upon a dream.

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – Obsession lyrics

JEKYLL:
What streak of madness lies inside me?
What is the truth my fears conceal?
What evil force makes Edward Hyde of me?
What darker side of me does he reveal?
What is this strange obsession
That’s tearing me apart?
Some strange, deranged expression
Of what’s in my heart?

Am I the man that I appear to be?
Or am I someone I don’t know?
Is there some monster drawing near me to me?
Becoming clear to see?
Will what I fear to be
Be so?

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – Now There Is No Choice lyrics

JEKYLL:
Now 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 great golden chance
That only I can take,
When everything I fought for
Is at stake!…
To make the mark
That only I can make!

Andrew Lloyd Webber – Whistle Down The Wind – It Just Doesn’t Get Any Better Than This lyrics

[Boone]
If your mother was here you know what she’d say
Don’t complain, life is tough but you survive day to day
And the things that matter surround and embrace us
And the comforting nurses they always will take us
The assurance of God he will never forsake us
So we really don’t miss the things that we miss
And it just doesn’t get any better than this
It just doesn’t get any better than this.

( Boone breaks down in tears and says that your mother always had the words
To put things right again)

Whistle down the wind, let your voices carry
Drown out all the rain, light a patch of darkness
Treacherous and scary

Howl at the stars, whisper when your 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

[Swallow]
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

[Boone]
So whistle down the wind, for I have always been right there

Ma sang it better! (spoken by Poor Baby)

[Swallow]
Howl at the stars, whisper when your 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

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

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

[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

Andrew Lloyd Webber – Whistle Down The Wind – I Never Get What I Pray For lyrics

[Swallow]
I wanna be baptised and I wanna be saved
I wanna see my saviour face to face
I wanna feel the rapture, feel the fire
I wanna be taken someplace higher
But I never get taken to someplace higher

[Brat]
Swallow!

[Swallow]
Well I don’t!
I never get what I pray for
I can pray for less or a whole lot more

[Swallow, Poor Baby & Brat]
It don’t ever matter, it’s a sure bet
That I never get what I pray for

[Swallow]
An end to the horrors of the atom bomb

[Brat]
And a dance with Ricky Nelson at the homecoming prom
I wanna be beautiful, sexy and smart

[Poor Baby]
I wanna sister that don’t hiccup

[Brat]
I want a brother that don’t fart

[Poor Baby]
I wanna move like Elvis in every way

[Brat]
I wanna look like Sandra Dee or maybe Doris Day

[Swallow]
They should send us down some angels
We could never have enough

[Brat]
They should send us down some money

[Swallow, Poor Baby & Brat]
So we can buy each other stuff.
I never get what I pray for
I can pray for less or a whole lot more
It don’t ever matter, it’s a sure bet
That I never get what I pray for

[Brat]
We should all be praying for dad
It’s scary how he’s been

[Poor Baby]
He was crying in the trailer

[Brat]
No way I was going in

[Poor Baby]
I want a football

[Brat]
And some Lipstick

[Poor Baby]
And some Liquorice

[Brat]
And a kite

[Swallow]
And I just want our mother back, If only for one night
There are things she’s gotta tell me
There are things she’s gotta know
God had no right to take her, She had no right to go
There are things I didn’t tell her
And so much I had to say
So I just want my mother back
If only for one day

Andrew Lloyd Webber – Whistle Down The Wind – Home By Now lyrics

[Swallow]
The locusts are singing, the sun is red
It’s gotten so late somehow

[Poor Baby & Brat]
There’s gonna be trouble
You know what they said
[Swallow, Poor Baby & Brat]
We should have been home by now
We should have been home by now

[Swallow]
The locusts are singing, the sun is red
It’s gotten so late somehow

[Poor Baby & Brat]
There’s gonna be trouble
You know what Dad said

[Swallow, Poor Baby & Brat]
We should have been home by now
We should have been home by now
