No, don't look at me
Please ... not just yet
Why am I here?
This is crazy.
No, don't look at me
Do something new
And they wait for you to fail.
Sing something then,
Anything.
Oh, just look at me
Scared ... on my own
Still singing songs
But it's lonely
Isnt it awful?
God how depressing
Me standing here
And you there assessing
I'm so glad I came

Whenever I feel afraid I hold my head erect
And whistle a happy tune
Anyone can whistle
That's what they say
Easy
Anyone can whistle any old day
Easy
It's oh so simple.
Relax, let go, let fly.
Will someone tell me why can't I?
Whistle at a dragon, down it’ll fall
Easy
Whistle at a hero, trumpets and all
Easy
What's hard is simple
What's natural comes hard
Maybe you could show me how to let go
Lower my guard

When you feel in trouble
And you don't know right from wrong
Give a little whistle
Give a little whistle
When you feel temptation
And the urge is very strong
Give a little whistle
Give a little whistle
Not just a little squeak
Pucker up and blow
And if your whistle's weak yell
Jiminy Cricket
Take the straight and narrow path
And if you start to slide
Give a little whistle
Give a little whistle
And always let your conscience be your guide
When you feel in trouble
And you don't know right from wrong
Give a little whistle
Give a little whistle
When you feel temptation
And the urge is very strong
Give a little whistle
Give a little whistle
Not just a little squeak
Pucker up and blow
And if your whistle's weak

Sing, sing, so
No, Don't
Please look at me now
Here on stage
This is my world
It’s outrageous
Call for the hook
Tonight I can duck it
This is terrific
Scary but fuck it
I'm so glad I came
 

Sometimes you think you've lived before
All that you've lived today
Things you do come back to you
As if they knew the way
Oh the tricks the mind can play
It seems we stood and talked like this before
We looked at each other the same way then
But I can't remember where or when
The clothes I'm wearing
Are the clothes I wore
The smile I am smiling
I was smiling then
But I can't remember where or when
Some things that happen for the first time
Seem to be happening again
And so it seems that we have lived before
And laughed before and loved before
But who knows where or when
Some things that happen for the first time
Seem to be happening again
And so it seems that we have lived before
And laughed before and loved before
But who knows where or when

I've been thinking about what I want to share with you this evening.  I want to take a journey, a journey through a life.  A life that's as complex, as varied, as intriguing as the words and music that surround it.  I'm sure that the paths that I'll tread have been well-worn by many others.

Blue, songs are like tattoos
You know I've been to see before
Crown and anchor me
Or let me sail away
Hey Blue, here is a song for you
Ink on a pin
Underneath the skin
An empty space to fill in
Well they're so many sinking now
You've got to keep thinking
You can make it thru’ these waves
Acid, booze, and ass
Needles, guns, and grass
Lots of laughs, lots of laughs
Everybody's saying hell's the hippest way to go
Well I don't think so
But I'm gonna take a look around it so
Blue, I love you
Blue, there is a shell for you
Inside you'll hear a sigh
A foggy lullaby
There is your song from me

It steals to you softly at night
And echoes around in your brain
So seemingly sweet and polite
A tender and placid refrain
Seductive, delicious it haunts you
You'll melt as the melody flows
Repeated, insisting it taunts you
As time and again round it goes
Round it goes
Always it goes
Padam Padam Padam
It's the voice of the act you regret
Padam Padam Padam
You may try but you'll never forget
Padam Padam Padam
In your heart feel it gouging a hole
As it sings of your guilt
And the lies you've built
This tune, the song of your soul
It drags up the love that you spurned
It dredges up memories you hate
You wear them like chains justly earned
You stagger and reel from the weight
You stumble for ways to defeat it
You strain to restore your repose
But still in your sleep you'll repeat it
As time and again round it goes
Round it goes
Always it goes
Padam Padam Padam
It's the echo of conscience ignored
Padam Padam Padam
It exposes the fake and the fraud
Padam Padam Padam
All your fears feed it fires like coal
And it shouts of your shame
And it calls your name
This tune, the song of your soul.
Oh and it's laughing at all of your pain
And it knows that you wrote the refrain.
So when Destiny's bell starts to toll
You'll admit that you lost and you paid the cost
Cry out the song of my soul
Padam!

Son of the thief
Son of the saint
Who is the child
Without complaint
Son of the brave
Son unknown
This is a child like your own
The same sweet smile
The same sad tears
The cry at night
The nightmare tears
Son of the great
Or son unknown
This is a child like your own
So long ago
Long long ago

Little Pal
When Daddy goes away
Promise you'll be good
From day to day
Do as Mummy says
And never sin
Be the man your Daddy might have been
Daddy didn't have an easy start
So here is the wish that's in my heart
I want you to be
Little Pal
What I might have been
Little Pal
I want you to laugh and to sing and to play
And be good to Mummy while Daddy's away
I'll pray day and night
Little Pal
That you'll turn out right
Little Pal
So till we meet again
Never knows where or when
Pray for me
Now and then
Little Pal
The night is bitter
The stars have lost their glitter
The wind grows colder
And suddenly you're older
And all because of the man that got away
No more his eager call
The writing's on the wall
The dreams you dreamed have all gone astray
The man that won you
Has run off and undone you
That great beginning has seen a final inning
Don't know what happened.
It's all a crazy game
No more that old time thrill
For you've been through the mill
And never a new love will be the same
Good riddance
Goodbye
Every trick of his you're on to
But fools will be fools
And where's he gone to?
The road gets rougher
It's lonelier and tougher
With hope you burn up
Tomorrow he may turn up
There's just no let up
The live long night and day
Ever since this world began
There's nothing sadder than
A one man woman
Looking for the man that got away
Good riddance
Goodbye

If you were the only girl in the world
And I were the only boy
Nothing else would matter
In the world today
We could go on loving
In the same old way
A Garden of Eden
Just made for two
Nothing will  mar our joy
I could say such wonderful things to you
There would be such wonderful things to do
If I were the only boy in the world
And you...
The moment you wake up
Before you put on your make-up
I'll say a little prayer for you
While combing your hair now
And wondering what dress you'll wear now
I'll say a little prayer for you
Forever and ever you'll stay in my heart
And I will love you
Forever and ever we never will part
Oh how I love you
Together forever
That's how it must be
To live without you
Would only mean heartache for me
I run for the bus dear
While riding I think of us dear
And I say a little prayer for you
At work I just take time
And all through my coffee break time
I say a little prayer for you
Forever and ever you'll stay in my heart
And I will love you
Forever and ever we never will part
Oh how I love you
Together forever
That's how it must be
To live without you
Will only be heartache for me
At night when I'm lonely
My thoughts are for you dear, only
And I say a little prayer for you
The memories that find me
Keep coming back to remind me
To say a little prayer for you
Forever and ever you stay in my heart
And I will love you
Forever and ever we never will part
Oh how I loved you
Together forever
That's how it must be
To live without you
Only means heartache for me
So darling believe me
For me there is no one but you

Mother, you left me but I never left you
I needed you but you didn't need me
So I,  I’ve just got to tell you
Goodbye, goodbye
Father, you had me but I never had you
I wanted you but you didn't want me
So I, I’ve just got to tell you
Goodbye, goodbye
Mother, Father, look what you've done
I couldn't walk but I tried to run
So I, I’ve just got to tell you
Goodbye, Goodbye
Mother, Father

I've got no strings to hold me down
To make me fret, to make me frown
I had strings but now I'm free
There are no strings on me
I've got no strings so I have fun
I'm not tied to anyone
How I love my liberty
There are no strings on me
Hi Ho the merry-o
I'm as happy as can be
And I want the world to know
Nothing ever worries me

I'll build a stairway to Paradise
Wth a new step everyday
I'm gonna get there at any price
Stand aside I'm on my way
I've got the blues
And up above is so fair
Shoes go on and carry me there
I'll build a stairway to Paradise
With a new step everyday
It's madness to be always sitting around in sadness
When you could be looking the steps of gladness
You'll be happy when you can do
Oh just six or seven
Begin today
You'll find it nice
The quickest way to Paradise
When you practice
Here's the thing to do
Simply say as you go
That I'll build a stairway to Paradise
With a new step everyday
And I'm gonna get there at any price
Stand aside I'm on my way
I got the blues
And up above is so fair
Shoes come on and carry me there
I'll build a stairway to Paradise
With a new step everyday

Happy talk keep talkin' Happy talk
Talk about thing you'd like to do
You've got to have a dream
If you don't have a dream
How you gonna have
A dream come true?
Talk about the moon
Floating in the sky
Looking like a lily on a lake
Talk about a bird
Learning how to fly
Making all the music he can make
Happy talk keep talkin' happy talk
Talk about things you'd like to do
You've got to have a dream
If you don't have a dream
How you gonna have
A dream come true?
Talk about a star
Looking like a toy
Peeking through the branches of a tree
Talk about a girl
Talk about a boy
Counting all the ripples in the sea
Happy talk keep talkin' happy talk
Talk about things you'd like to do
You've got to have a dream
If you don't have a dream
How you gonna have
A dream come true?
If you don't talk happy
And you haven't got a dream
Then you'll never have
a dream come true

The best of times is now
What's left of summer but a faded rose
The best of times is now
As for tomorrow
Well...
So hold this moment fast
And live and love as hard as you know how
And make this moment last
Because the best of times is now, is now, is now
Now, not some forgotten yesterday
Now, tomorrow is too far away
So hold this moment fast
And live and love as hard as you know how
And make this moment last
Because the best of times is now, is now, is now
Now, not some forgotten yesterday
Now, tomorrow is too far away
So hold this moment fast
And live and love as hard as you know how
And make this moment last
Because the best of times is now, is now, is now, is now, is now, is now, is now
I remember when I was a very little boy our house burned down.  I'll never     Is That All There Is?
forget the look on my mother's face as she gathered me up in her arms and
carried me through the burning building out on to the pavement.  I stood there
shivering in my pajamas and watched my whole world go up in flames.  And
then I said to myself "Is that all there is to a fire?"
Is that all there is?
Is that all there is?
If that's all there is, my friends
Then let's keep dancing
Let's break out the booze
And have a ball
If that's all there is
And years later when I was 12 years old my mother took me to the circus.  The greatest show on earth - clowns, elephants, dancing bears and a beautiful lady in pink tights who flew high above our heads.  As I sat there watching this marvelous spectacle, I couldn't halp but feel that something was missing. I didn't know what it was but when it was over I said to myself "Is that all there is to the circus?"
Is that all there is?
Is that all there is?
If that's all there is, my friends
Then let's keep dancing
Let's break out the booze
And have a ball
If that's all there is
I fell in love. Head over heels in love with this wonderful person in the world. We used to take long walks along the side of the river. Sit for hours gazing into each other's eyes.  So very much in love. And then one day my love went away. I thought I would die, and when I didn't, when I didn't, I said to myself "Is that all there is to love?"
Is that all there is?
Is that all there is?
If that's all there is, my friends
Then let's keep....
Oh, I know what your're thinking to yourself.  If that's the way he feels about it, why doesn't he end it all right now.
But no, not me.  I'm not ready for the final disappointment.  Because I know, as sure as I'm standing here talking to you, that when the final moment comes, when I'm breathing my last breath I'll be saying to myself "Is that all there is?"
Is that all there is?
Is that all there is?
If that's all there is my friends
Then let's keep dancing
Let's break out the booze
And have a ball
If that's all there is

The butcher, the baker, the grocer, the clerk
Are secretly unhappy men because
The butcher, the baker, the grocer, the clerk
Get paid for what they do, but no applause
They'd gladly bid their dreary jobs goodbye
For anything theatrical
And why?
There's no business like showbusiness
Like no business I know
Everything about it is appealing
Everything the traffic will allow
Nowhere can you get that happy feeling
When you are stealing that extra bow
There's no people like show people
They smile when they are low
Even with a turkey that you know will fold
You may be stranded out in the cold
Still you wouldn't change it for a sack of gold
Let's go on with the show
The costumes, the scenery, the make-up, the props
The audience that lifts you when you're down
The headaches, the heartaches, the backaches, the flops
The sheriff who escorts you out of town
Oh, the opening when your heart beats like a drum
The closing when the customers don't come

There's no business like showbusiness
Like no business I know
You get word before the show has started
That your ailing mother died at dawn
Top of that your wife and you just parted
Oh, you're broken hearted but you go on

There's no business like showbusiness
Like no business I know
Travelling through the country will be thrilling
Standing out in front on opening night
Smiling as you see the theatre filling
On and there's your billing up there in lights
There's no people like show people
We smile when we are low
Yesterday they told you you would not go far
That night you open and there you are
Next day on your dressing room they've hung a star
Let's go on with the show

Let me sing a
A happy song
With crazy words
That roll along
And if my song can start you laughing
I'm happy
  Happy!
Let me sing a sad refrain
A broken heart that loved in vain,
And if my song can start you crying
I'm happy
Let me croon
A low down tune
To lift you out of your seat
And if my song
Can reach your shoes
And start you tapping your feet
Sing Hallelujah Hallelujah
And you'll shoo the blues away
When cares pursue ya
Hallelujah
Sees you through
The darkest day
Satan lies a-waitin'
And creatin' skies of grey
When I got to Satan's door
I heard you blowing on your horn once more so
Blow Gabriel, blow
Blow Gabriel, blow
I want to join your happy band
Let the drums roll out
Let the trumpets call
While the people shout
Strike up the band
Let the symbols ring
Calling one and all
To the martial swing
Strike up the band
There is work to be done to be done
There's a war to be won to be won
Come you son of a gun of a gun
Take a stand
Fall in line yeah boy
Come along lets go
Hey, leader strike up
Before the parade passes by
I'm going to go and taste
Saturday's highlife
Before the parade passes by
I'm going to get some life back into my life
I'm ready to move out in front
I've had enough of just passing by life
With the rest of them
With the best of them
I'm going to hold my head up high
Be a clown
Be a clown
All the world loves a clown
With his pants fallin' down
Or the dance that's a dream of romance
Or the scene, where the villain is mean
The world is a stage
The stage is a world
Give my regards to Broadway
Remember me to Herald Square
Tell all the gals
On the avenue I'm taking you to
That I will soon be there
Whisper of how I'm yearning
To mingle with that old time throng
So give my regards to Broadway
Broadway
How great you are
I'll leave the farm and all its charm
To be a Broadway star
Bright lights, white lights
Where the neons glow
My bags are packed
I've got my act
So all aboard, come on lets go
All aboard, all aboard, all aboard
Can you hear that whistle down the line
I figure that it's engine number 49
She's the only one that will sound that way
On the the Atchison Topeka and the Santa Fe
Ooo-oo-oo  oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo
Hey Jim, you'd better get the rig
Ooo-oo-oo  oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo
She's got a list of passengers that's mighty big
Toot toot tootsie, goodbye
Toot toot tootsie, don't cry
I'm on a train that takes me
Away from you
Oh, you'll never know how sad that makes me
Kiss me Tootsie and then
Kiss me over again
I'll watch for the mail
I'll never fail
If you don't get a letter then you'll know I'm in jail
San Francisco, open your golden gate
You'd let no stranger wait outside your door
San Francisco
Here is your wandering one
Saying I'll wander no more
Other places make me love you best
Tell me you're the heart of all the golden west
Meet me in St Louis, Louis
Meet me at the fair
Don't tell me the lights are shining
Any place but …
Nothing could be finer
Than to be in Carolina
In the morning
Oh and nothing could be sweeter
Than my sweetie
When I meet her in the morning
And if I had Aladdin's lamp
For only a day
I'd make a wish
And here's what I'd say
Oh Rock-a-bye my baby with a Dixie Melody
When you croon, croon a tune
Right from the heart of Dixie
Just hang that cradle Mammy mine
Right on the Mason Dixon Line
And swing it from Virginia
To Tennessee
With all the love that's in ya
Weep no more my lady
Sing that song again for me
Sing Old Black Joe, just as though you had me on your
Swanee, how I love ya, how I love ya
My dear old
Baby face, I'm up in heaven when I'm in your fond embrace
Me, my sweet embraceable
You and the night and the music
Thrill me, but will we be true
After the light and the music dies will I have
Will I have rhythm
Will I have music
Will I have my gal
Who could ask for anything more?
This is a love I give to you
And more
I know I've never lived before
And my heart is very sure
No one else could love
You've made my life so glamorous
You can't blame me for feeling amorous
Oh s'wonderful, s'marvellous
That you should care for
Me and my shadow
All alone and feeling
Blue skies, smiling at me
Nothing but blue skies
Do I see
After you've gone
And left me crying
After you’ve gone
There's no denying
Someday when you get lonely
Your heart will break like mine and you'll want me only
After you've gone
After you’ve gone
I'll go my way by myself
Here's where the comedy ends
I'll try to deny myself
Love and laughter and friends
I'll face the unknown
I'll build a world of my own
Love, love changes
Everything's coming up roses
And if you're real good
I'll make you feel good
I want your spirits to climb
So let me sing a happy song
With crazy words that roll along
And if my song can make you
H A P P
Why was I born?
To make you
Happy
Happy
To make you
HAPPY

They love me like I was a brother
They protect me

They dug me my very own garden

Nice dream
Nice dream
Nice dream
I call up my friend the good angel
But she's out with her answer phone
She says that she would love to come help me but
The sea would electrocute us all
Nice dream
Nice dream
Nice dream
Nice dream
Nice dream
If you think that you're strong enough
If you think you belong enough
If you think you belong

In my solitude
You haunt me
With reveries
Of days gone by
In my solitude
You taunt me
With memories
That never die
I sit in my chair
I'm filled with despair
There's no one could be so sad
With gloom everywhere
I sit and I stare
I know that I'll soon go mad
In my solitude
I'm praying
Dear Lord above
Send back my love
Nice dream

She touched me
She put her hand near mine
And then she touched me
I felt a sudden tingle
When she touched me
A sparkle
A glow
Oh, she knew it
It wasn't accidental
No she knew it
She smiled and seemed to tell me so all through it
She knew it
I know
She's real and the world is alive and shining
I feel such a wonderful drive to Valentining
She touched me
I simply have to face the fact
She touched me
Control myself and try to act
As if I remember my name
But she touched me
She touched me
And suddenly nothing is the same

I hear singing and there's no one
I smell blossom and the trees are bare
All day long I seem to walk on air
I wonder why
I wonder why
I keep tossing in my sleep at night
And what's more I've lost my appetite
Stars that used to twinkle in the sky
Are twinkling in my eye
I wonder why
I am dizzy
I am whirling
I feel like my hair is curling
All around my head
Like a lucky bird
Landed on my head
I must pinch myself to see
If this has happened and to me
It's like a lucky bird
Shat upon my head
Ordinarily I'm meek
But I could raise a fuss and shriek
See that cloud
I just might
Jump right up
Grab a bite
But for a while I will
Stand completely still
My heart's trying to tell me something
Yes, my heart begin
Speak or pound or spin
Tell me something
Tell me something
Yes my heart
She's wonderful
Yes my heart
This is our chance
But for a while I will
Stand completely still
Then I'll have to laugh and sing and dance

My heart's trying to tell me something
Tell me something
Tell me something
Tell me something
Yes, my heart
She's wonderful
Yes, my heart
This is our chance
But for a while I will
Stand completely still
Then I’ll have to run and spin
And shout and shriek
And giggle and grin
And leap and prance
And laugh and sing and dance

Remind me not to find you so attractive
When I start to miss you
To touch your hand, to kiss you
Remind me, to count to ten
I had the feeling when I met you
You'd drive me crazy if I let you
But all my efforts to forget you
Remind me I'm in love again.

I get my heart well in hand and I'm certain
That I can take you or leave you alone
Then you begin that beguine again
and boom I give in again
I have a will made of steel my friend
But when it seems about to bend
Remind me not to mention that I love you
Remind me to be sorry that we met
Although I adore you remind me to ignore you
You're one thing I will regret

So when your charm begins to blind me
I'll simply tie my hands behind me
Don't let me kiss you please remind me
Unless, my darling, you forget.

I wish I could forget you
Erase you from my mind
But ever since I met you I find
I cannot leave the thought of you behind
That doesn't mean I love you
I wish that I could love you
I know that I've upset you
I know I've been unkind
I wanted you to vanish from sight
But now I see you in a different light
And though I cannot love you
I wish that I could love you
For now I'm seeing love
Like none I've ever known
A love as pure as breath
As permanent as death
Implacable as stone
A love that like a knife
Has cut into a life
I wanted left alone
A love I may regret
But one I can't forget
I don't know how I let you
So far inside my mind
There you are
And there you will stay
How could I ever wish you away
I see now I was blind
And should I die tomorrow
Another thing I see
Your love will live in me

What now my love
Now that you've left me
How can I live
Through another day
Watching my dreams
Turn into ashes
And my hopes
Into bits of clay
Once I could see
Once I could feel
But now I'm numb
I've become unreal
I walk the night
Without a goal
Stripped of my heart
My soul
What now my love
Now that it's over
I see the world
Closing in on me
Here come the stars
Tumbling around me
There's the sky where the sea should be
What now my love
Now that you've gone
I'd be a fool to go and on
No one would care
No one would cry
If I should live or die
What now my love
Now there is nothing
Only my last goodbye

How can I lose you
You're all that I know
What will I do now?
Where will I go?
We were together
Now we are through
Why am I losing you?
How can you leave me?
Leave me this way
Leave me to miss you
Day after day
I look around me
You're all I see
Pictures of you leaving me
No one should always lose
Can't I find some kind of peace
Nobody owns the blues
But I have a long term lease
I'll never know why
I never know when
I'm going along, it happens again
I have a blind spot forty miles wide
I have a terrible weakness inside
That's how I lose you
That's how I lose you
I was another boy
Simple and happy and free
He was a bundle of joy
When did he turn into me?
How can I lose you?
You're all that I had
Where could I go?
What do I say now
How was I bad?
Who can I turn to?
Where will I go?
How can I live now
Missing you so?
How can you leave me?
You're all that I know
Oh!
That's how I lost you
That's how I always lost you
That's how I'll always lose you
Oh!

It's a god awful small affair
To the girl with the mousy hair
And her Mummy is yelling "No"
But her Daddy has told her to go
And her friend is nowhere to be seen
As she walks through her sunken dream
To the seat with the clearest view
And she's hooked to the silver screen
But the film is a saddening bore
'Cause she's lived it ten times or more
She could spit in the eyes of fools
As they ask her to focus on
Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! I wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?
It's on America's tortured brow
Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow
Now the workers have struck for fame
'Cause Lenin's on sale again
See the mice in their million hordes
From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads
Rule Britannia is out of bounds
To my mother, my dog, my clowns
But the film is a saddening bore
’coz I wrote it ten times or more
It's about to be writ again
As I ask you to focus on
Sailors fighting in the dance halls
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! I wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?
Is there life on Mars?

Bach Prelude No.8 in E flat minor

Over my head
I hear music everywhere
Over my head
I hear music everywhere
Over my head
I hear music everywhere
There must be a God somewhere
        Is it warm?
Is it soft against your face
 Do you feel a kind of grace?
Beside the breeze?
Will there be trees?
Is there light?
Does it harbour on the ground?
Does it shine from all around?
Or just from you?
Is it endless and empty
And you wander on your own
Slowly forget about the folks that you have known?
Or does rising bread
Fill up the air
From open kitchens everywhere
Familiar faces far as you can see?
Like a family?
Do we live?
Is it like a little town?
Do we get to look back down
At who we loved?
Are we above?
Are we everywhere?
Are we anywhere at all?
Do we hear a trumpet call us
And we're by your side?
Will I want?
Will I wish for all the things I should have done
Longing to finish what I've only just begun?
Or has shining truth been waiting there?
For all the questions everywhere
In a world of wondering
Suddenly you know
And you will always know
Will my mother be there waiting for me
Smiling like the way she does
And holding out her arms as she calls my name?
She will hold me
Just the same
Only heaven knows how glory goes
What each of us is meant to be
In the starlight
That is what we are
I can see so far

Click here to listen
Alone together
Beyond the crowd
Above the world
We're not too proud
To cling together
We're strong as long as we're together
Alone together
The blinding rain
The starless night
Were not in vain
For we're together
And what is there to fear together
Our love is as deep as the sea
Our love is as great as a love can be
And we can weather
The great unknown
If we're alone together
Together
Together
If we're alone
Together

The stars are gone
Slipped out of sight
I ought to follow them
Into the night
But here is good
Feels almost right
Don't call it love yet
Just call it light
This is what it is to wake up, yeah
This is what it is to feel warm, yeah
This is what it is to be filled, sure
This is what it is to be lost,  help
This is what it is to feel scared, God
This is what it is
This is what it is to know the day
And meet the sun
And find that I am not the only one
I am not the only one
Who's afraid of a world
Too big, too bright
This is what it is, this is what it is
To live in light

After the ball is over
After the break of morn
After the dancers' leaving
After the stars are gone
Many a heart is aching
If you could read them all
Many's the  fears that have vanished
After the Ball
