    You've got to be taught before it's too late
    Before you are six, or seven or eight
    To hate all the people your relatives hate
    You've got to be carefully taught.
    -Rogers & Hammerstein, "You've Got to be Carefully Taught," from South Pacific


    For now we're healthy, for now we're employed.
    For now we're happy, if not overjoyed.
    And we'll accept the things we cannot avoid for now,
    But only for now.
    -"For Now," Avenue Q


    I don't get many things right the first time,
    in fact I am told that a lot.
    Now I know that the wrong turns,
    the stumbles and falls brought me here.
    And where was I before the day that I first saw your lovely face?
    Now I see it every day,
    And I know that I am the luckiest.
    -"The Luckiest," Ben Folds

    Thinking that its finally my turn
    like a fool believing every word
    You tell me that it's over
    But that's not what I heard
    'Cause the heart just never seems to learn.

    Gloria Estefan

    Be lonesome and you will be free
    Live a lie and you will live to regret it

    GREAT HEART Johnny Clegg
    This world is full of strange behavior
    Every man has to be his own savior
    I know I can make it on my own if I try
    But I'm searchin' for a great heart
    To stand me by
    Underneath the African sky
    A great heart to stand me by

    "Dancing through life
    Skimming the surface
    Gliding where turf is smooth
    Life's more painless
    For the brainless
    Why think too hard?
    When it's so soothing
    Dancing through life
    No need to tough it
    When you can sluff it off as I do
    Nothing matters
    But knowing nothing matters
    It's just life
    So keep dancing through"

    I look into the window of my mind
    Reflections of the fears I know I've left behind
    I step out of the ordinary
    I can feel my soul ascending
    I am on my way
    Can't stop me now
    And you can do the same

    What have you done today to make you feel proud?
    It's never too late to try
    What have you done today to make you feel proud?
    You could be so many people
    If you make that break for freedom
    What have you done today to make you feel proud?

    Still so many answers I don't know
    Realise that to question is how we grow
    So I step out of the ordinary
    I can feel my soul ascending
    I am on my way
    Can't stop me now
    And you can do the same

    What have you done today to make you feel proud?
    It's never too late to try
    What have you done today to make you feel proud?
    You could be so many people
    If you make that break for freedom
    What have you done today to make you feel proud?

    We need a change
    Do it today
    I can feel my spirit rising
    We need a change
    So do it today
    'Cause I can see a clear horizon

    What have you done today to make you feel proud?
    So what have you done today to make you feel proud?
    'Cause you could be so many people
    If you make that break for freedom
    So what have you done today to make you feel proud?
    What have you done today to make you feel proud?
    What have you done today
    You could be so many people?
    Just make that break for freedom
    So what have you done today to make you feel proud?

    You’re the only friend I’ve ever had.

    GLINDA
    And I’ve had so many friends. But only one-- that mattered.
    (sings)


    I’VE HEARD IT SAID
    THAT PEOPLE COME INTO OUR LIVES FOR A REASON
    BRINGING SOMETHING WE MUST LEARN
    AND WE ARE LED
    TO THOSE WHO HELP US MOST TO GROW
    IF WE LET THEM
    AND WE HELP THEM IN RETURN
    WELL, I DON’T KNOW IF I BELIEVE THAT’S TRUE
    BUT I KNOW I’M WHO I AM TODAY
    BECAUSE I KNEW YOU...

    LIKE A COMET PULLED FROM ORBIT
    AS IT PASSES A SUN

    LIKE A STREAM THAT MEETS A BOULDER
    HALFWAY THROUGH THE WOOD
    WHO CAN SAY IF I’VE BEEN CHANGED FOR THE BETTER?
    BUT BECAUSE I KNEW YOU
    I HAVE BEEN CHANGED FOR GOOD …

    ELPHABA
    IT WELL MAY BE
    THAT WE WILL NEVER MEET AGAIN
    IN THIS LIFETIME
    SO LET ME SAY BEFORE WE PART
    SO MUCH OF ME
    IS MADE OF WHAT I LEARNED FROM YOU
    YOU’LL BE WITH ME
    LIKE A HANDPRINT ON MY HEART
    AND NOW WHATEVER WAY OUR STORIES END
    I KNOW YOU HAVE RE-WRITTEN MINE
    BY BEING MY FRIEND...


    LIKE A SHIP BLOWN FROM ITS MOORING
    BY A WIND OFF THE SEA
    LIKE A SEED DROPPED BY A SKYBIRD
    IN A DISTANT WOOD
    WHO CAN SAY IF I’VE BEEN CHANGED FOR THE BETTER?
    BUT BECAUSE I KNEW YOU...

    GLINDA
    BECAUSE I KNEW YOU...

    BOTH
    BECAUSE I KNEW YOU
    I HAVE BEEN CHANGED FOR GOOD...

    ELPHABA
    AND JUST TO CLEAR THE AIR
    I ASK FORGIVENESS
    FOR THE THINGS I’VE DONE YOU BLAME ME FOR

    GLINDA
    BUT THEN, I GUESS WE KNOW
    THERE’S BLAME TO SHARE

    BOTH
    AND NONE OF IT SEEMS TO MATTER ANYMORE


    ___

    [They sing simultaneously]

    GLINDA

    LIKE A COMET PULLED FROM
    ORBIT/AS IT PASSES A SUN/
    LIKE A STREAM THAT MEETS A
    BOULDER/ HALF-WAY
    THROUGH THE WOOD

    ELPHABA

    LIKE A SHIP BLOWN OFF ITS
    MOORING/BY A WIND OFF THE
    SEA/ LIKE A SEED DROPPED BY A
    BIRD IN
    THE WOOD

    ___

    BOTH
    WHO CAN SAY IF I’VE BEEN CHANGED FOR THE BETTER?
    I DO BELIEVE I HAVE BEEN CHANGED FOR THE BETTER

    BECAUSE I KNEW YOU...

    BOTH
    BECAUSE I KNEW YOU...
    I HAVE BEEN CHANGED FOR GOOD.


    "For Good"
    by Stephen Schwartz :bow:


    There's a time and place, for everything.
    There's a reason why, certain people meet.
    There's a destination, for everyone.
    What's the explanation, when we're done?

    All the summer nights spent wondering;
    So many questions asked, but no one's answering.
    Would it be okay if I left today?
    Took my chances on what you said was wrong?

    I'm jaded, stupid, and wreckless.
    Not sorry, and I'll never regret.
    These years spent, so faded and wreckless.
    Not sorry, and I'll never regret these years.
    I'll never regret these years.

    Now here i sit, so far away.
    Remembering all our memories.
    Its times like these that I miss you most,
    Remembering when we were so close.

    I'm jaded, stupid, and wreckless.
    Not sorry, we'll never regret.
    These years spent, so faded and wreckless.
    Not sorry, and I'll never regret these years.

    We'll never forget the places we've been, you and i.
    Our lives are slipping away.
    Don't want to let time pass us by, by...

    [Benji]
    I'm jaded, stupid, and wreckless.
    Not sorry, and I'll never regret.
    These years....
    ...spent, so faded and wreckless,
    Not sorry, and I'll never regret...
    I'm jaded, stupid, and wreckless.
    Not sorry, and I'll never regret these years.


    Mest (feat. Benji Madden)
    "Jaded (These Years)"


    OK, I'm done for now.

    I am going to college in the fall.. and dont know what i am going to do....

    Avenue Q....
    What do you do with a B.A. in English,
    What is my life going to be?
    Four years of college and plenty of knowledge,
    Have earned me this useless degree.

    I can't pay the bills yet,
    'Cause I have no skills yet,
    The world is a big scary place.

    But somehow I can't shake,
    The feeling I might make,
    A difference,
    To the human race.

    You see there's always another dream around the bend
    If I can't play for keeps, I guess I'll play pretend
    Carry on 'til that next dream comes around the bend
    Listenin' for the love song I can sing unto the end
    As this old car careens,
    headin' for those sweet dreams around the bend

    You see it's one more night,
    another shot might make things all right
    Play one more song and I'll be feelin' fine
    And I'm headin' for the back door, knowing I could have given so much more
    Then someone whispers "Hey, you'll get 'em next time"
    There's always next time.
    See, there's always another dream around the bend...

    Time after time we
    Walk pass the window
    But never see the ashes on the ground

    Night after night
    Watching the sky move
    Never feel the earth spinning 'round

    I didn't see you fallin'
    I couldn't hear you callin'
    Born with eyes wide open, never learned to see

    I never meant to hurt you
    Was right there crying with you
    Why do we harm the only thing we want to be?

    Trying to follow
    Every footstep
    I feel so lost along the way

    Reading the scripture
    Straight from the gospel
    Never understanding what they say

    I didn't see you fallin'
    I never heard you' callin'
    I've got my eyes wide open
    but haven't learned to see

    I saw the musical "Avenue Q" for the first time about a year and half ago as I was in the beginning stages of leaving my partner of 6 years. Doesn't quite impact me the same way now, but when I think back on a song that really grabbed me emotionally... this one is it....



    "There's a Fine, Fine Line"
    Music and Lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx
    from the musical "Avenue Q"


    "There's a fine, fine line between a lover and a friend;
    There's a fine, fine line between reality and pretend;
    And you never know 'til you reach the top if it was worth the uphilll climb.

    There's a fine, fine line between love and a waste of time.

    There's a fine, fine line between a fairy tale and a lie;
    And there's a fine, fine line between "you're wonderful" and "goodbye."
    I guess if someone doesn't love you back it isn't such a crime,
    But there's a a fine, fine line between love and a waste of your time.

    And I don't have the time to waste on you anymore.
    I don't think that you even know what you're looking for.
    For my own sanity I have to close the door and walk away....
    Oh....

    There's a fine, fine line between together and not.
    And there's a fine, fine line between what you wanted and what you got.
    You gotta go after the things you want while you're still in your prime....

    There's a fine, fine line between love and a waste of time."

    "If I never knew you
    If I never felt this love
    I would have no inkling of
    how precious life can be

    If I never held you
    I would never have a clue
    how at last I'd find in you
    the missing part in me

    In this world so full of fear
    full of rage and lies
    I can see the truth so clear in your eyes
    so dry your eyes

    And I'm so grateful to you
    I'd have lived my whole life through
    lost forever
    if I never knew you"

    When I was very young
    Nothing really mattered to me
    But making myself happy
    I was the only one
    Now that I am grown
    Everything's changed
    I'll never be the same
    Because of you

    Looking at my life
    It's very clear to me
    I live so selfishly
    I was the only one
    I realize
    That nobody wins
    Something is ending
    And something begins

    Nothing takes the past away
    Like the future
    Nothing makes the darkness go
    Like the light
    You're shelter from the storm
    Give me comfort in your arms

    Nothing really matters
    Love is all we need
    Everything I give you
    All comes back to me

    Yesterday a child came out to wonder
    Caught a dragonfly inside a jar
    Fearful when the sky was full of thunder
    And tearful at the falling of a star
    Then the child moved ten times round the seasons
    Skated over ten clear frozen streams
    Words like, when you're older, must appease him
    And promises of someday make his dreams
    And the seasons they go round and round
    And the painted ponies go up and down
    We're captive on the carousel of time
    We can't return we can only look behind
    From where we came
    And go round and round and round
    In the circle game.

    Sixteen springs and sixteen summers gone now
    Cartwheels turn to car wheels through the town
    And they tell him,
    Take your time, it won't be long now
    Till you drag your feet to slow the circles down
    And the seasons they go round and round
    And the painted ponies go up and down
    We're captive on the carousel of time
    We can't return we can only look behind
    From where we came
    And go round and round and round
    In the circle game

    So the years spin by and now the boy is twenty
    Though his dreams have lost some grandeur
    coming true
    There'll be new dreams, maybe better dreams and plenty
    Before the last revolving year is through.
    And the seasons they go round and round
    And the painted ponies go up and down
    We're captive on the carousel of time
    We can't return, we can only look behind
    From where we came
    And go round and round and round
    In the circle game

    I am a proud lover of cheesy lyrics. The first thing that came to me was "Shimmer"

    She dreams a champagne dream
    Strawberry surprise, pink linen on white paper
    Lavender and cream, fields of butterflies
    Reality escapes her
    ~Fuel~

    Plus the majority of Phantom of the Opera, but I needn't go into that...

    Insanity

    Oingo Boingo

    I'm so sorry, please forgive me
    Who do I pray to to straighten out this problem?
    Straighten out this problem
    Straighten out my mind
    Straighten out this crooked tongue...

    My mind has wondered
    From the straight and narrow
    My mind has wandered from the flock you see
    My mind has wandered
    The man just said so
    My mind has wandered I heard it on TV
    And the flock has wandered away from me

    All around the world now
    Like a big bright cherry cloud
    Traveling form home to home
    TV sets and telephones
    Here it comes just like a storm
    Bathe in it and be reborn
    Time to let the world know
    Welcome madness, say helllo...

    Like a wave we cannot see
    Washing over you and me
    Hiding here and hiding there
    Madness hiding everywhere
    Such a curiosity
    Here it comes to set us free
    Plenty left for you and me
    SAY HELLO INSANITY!

    I am the virus
    Are you the cure?
    I am morally
    I'm morally impure
    I am a disease and I am unclean
    I am not part of God's oiled machine
    Christian nation, assimilate me
    Take me in you arms and set me free
    I am part of a degenerate elite
    Dragging our society into the street
    Into the abyss and to the sewer don't you see
    The man just told me, he told me on TV

    Do you think you're better then me
    Do you want to kill me or befriend me
    And the alcoholic waved his finger at me
    His voice was filled with evangelical glee

    Sipping down his gin & tonics
    While preaching about the evils of narcotics
    And the evils of sex
    And the wages of sin
    While he mentally fondles
    His next of kin
    My mind has wandered from the flock you see
    And the Flock has wandered away from me
    And he waved his hypnotizing finger at me

    Let's imitate reality (insanity)
    Let's strive for mediocrity (insanity)
    Let's make believe we're all the same (insanity)
    Let's sanitize our little brains (insanity)

    I love to take you home with me and tuck you into bed
    I'd love to see what makes you tick inside your pretty head
    I'd love to hear you laugh tonight
    I'd love to hear you weep
    I'd love to listen to you while you're screaming in your sleep

    Christian sons, Christian daughters
    Lead me along like a lamb to the slaughter
    Purify my brain and hose down my soul
    White perfection, perfection is my goal
    Do you think you're better then me
    Do you want to kill me
    Or befriend me
    Christian nation, make us alright
    Put us through the filter and make us pure and white
    My mind has wandered from the flock you see
    And the flock has wandered away from me

    Let's talk of family values
    While we sit and watch the sloughter
    Hypothetical abortions on imaginary daughters
    The white folks think they're at the top
    ask any proud white male
    A MILLION YEARS OF EVOLUTION
    WE GET DANNY QUAYLE!!!!

    I'd love to take you home with me
    I'd love to tuck you in
    I wish I could protect you
    From the wages of our sin
    I'd love to hear your scream tonight
    I'd love to hear you cry
    Protect you from the madness that is raining from the sky

    I'd love to take you home with me
    And tuck you into bed
    I'd love to see what makes you tick inside your pretty head
    I wish that I could keep you
    In a precious Chinese box
    On Sundays I would pray for you
    So it would never stop
    I'd love to hear you laugh tonight
    I'd love to hear you weep
    I'd love to listen to you
    While your're screaming in your sleep

    I'd love to soothe you with my voice
    And take your hand in mine
    I'd love to take you past the stars
    And out the reach of time
    I'd love to see inside you mind
    to tear it all apart
    To cut you open with a knife
    And find your sacred heart
    I'd love to take your satin dolls
    And tear them all to shreads
    I'd love to mess your pretty hair
    I'd love to see you DEAD!!!!!!!!
