Here are a few songs from musicals that have truly spoken to me. Hopefully, they may speak to you


Close Every Door
From Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

JOSEPH:
Close every door to me
Hide all the world from me
Bar all the windows
And shut out the light
Do what you want with me
Hate me and laugh at me
Darken my daytime
And torture my night
If my life were important I
Would ask will I live or die
But I know the answers lie
Far from this world

Close every door to me
Keep those I love from me
Children of Israel
Are never alone
For I know I shall find
My own peace of mind
For I have been promised
A land of my own

CHILDREN:

Close every door to me
Hide all the world from me
Bar all the windows
And shut out the light

JOSEPH:

Just give me a number
Instead of my name
Forget all about me
And let me decay
I do not matter
I'm only one person
Destroy me completely
Then throw me away

If my life were important I
Would ask will I live or die
But I know the answers lie
Far from this world

ALL:

Close every door to me
Keep those I love from me
Children of Israel
Are never alone
For we know we shall find
Our own peace of mind
For we have been promised
A land of our own


I DREAMED A DREAM
from Les Miserables

Fantine
There was a time when men were kind
When their voices were soft
And their words inviting
There was a time when love was blind
And the world was a song
And the song was exciting
There was a time
Then it all went wrong

I dreamed a dream in times gone by
When hope was high
And life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving
Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung
No wine untasted
But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hope apart
And they turn your dream to shame
He slept a summer by my side
He filled my days with endless wonder
He took my childhood in his stride
But he was gone when autumn came
And still I dream he'll come to me
That we'll live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather
I had a dream my life would be
So much different from this hell I'm living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed
The dream I dreamed.



I DONT KNOW HOW TO LOVE HIM
from Jesus Christ Superstar

MARY MAGDALENE:

I dont know how to love him
What to do how to move him
Ive been changed yes really changed
In this past few when Ive seen myself
I seem like someone else
I dont know how to take this
I dont see why he moves me
Hes a man hes just a man
And Ive had so many men before
In very many ways
Hes just one more

Should I bring him down should I scream and shout
Should I speak of love let my feelings out
I never thought Id come to this-
whats it all about

Dont you think its rather funny
I should be in this position
Im the one whos always been
So calm so cool,no lovers fool
Running every show
He scares me so

I never thought Id come to this-
whats it all about
Yet if he said he love me
Id be lost Ill be frightened
I couldnt cope just couldnt cope
Id turn my head
Id back away
I wouldnt want to know
He scares me so
I want him so
I love him so


Love Changes Everything
from Aspects of Love

ALEX
Love,
Love changes everything:
Hands and faces,
Earth and sky,
Love,
Love changes everything:
How you live and
How you die


Love
Can make the summer fly,
Or a night
Seem like a lifetime.


Yes, Love,
Love changes everything:
Now I tremble
At your name.
Nothing in the
World will ever
Be the same.


Love,
Love changes everything:
Days are longer,
Words mean more.
Love,
Love changes everything:
Pain is deeper
Than before.


Love
Will turn your world around,
And that world
Will last for ever.


Yes, Love,
Love changes everything,
Brings you glory,
Brings you shame.
Nothing in the
World will ever
Be the same.


Why did I go back to see her...?


WOMAN (GIULIETTA)
Alex, it's all in the past...


ALEX
Off
Into the world we go,
Planning futures,
Shaping years.
Love,
Bursts in, and suddenly
All our wisdom
Disappears.


Love
Makes fools of everyone:
All the rules
We make are broken.


Yes, Love,
Love changes everyone.
Live or perish
In its flame.
Love will never,
Never let you
Be the same.

All I Ask of You
from Phantom of the Opera


RAOUL
No more talk
of darkness,
Forget these
wide-eyed fears.
I'm here,
nothing can harm you -
my words will
warm and calm you.

Let me be
your freedom,
let daylight
dry -your tears.
I'm here,
with you, beside you,
to guard you
and to guide you . . .

CHRISTINE
Say you love me
every
waking moment,
turn my head
with talk of summertime . . .

Say you need me
with you,
now and always . . .
promise me that all
you say is true -
that's all I ask
of you . . .

RAOUL
Let me be
your shelter,
let me
be your light.
You're safe:
No-one will find youQ
your fears are
far behind you . . .

CHRISTINE
All I want
is freedom,
a world with
no more night . . .
and you
always beside me
to hold me
and to hide me . . .

RAOUL
Then say you'll share with
me one
love, one lifetime . . .
Iet me lead you
from your solitude . . .

Say you need me
with you
here, beside you . . .
anywhere you go,
let me go too -
Christine,
that's all I ask
of you . . .

CHRISTINE
Say you'll share with
me one
love, one lifetime . . .
say the word
and I will follow you . . .

BOTH
Share each day with
me, each
night, each morning . . .

CHRISTINE
Say you love me . . .

RAOUL
You know I do . . .

BOTH
Love me -
that's all I ask
of you . . .

(They kiss)

Anywhere you go
let me go too . . .
Love me -
that's all I ask
of you . .

Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again
from Phantom of the Opera

CHRISTINE
You were once
my one companion . . .
you were all
that mattered . . .
You were once
a friend and father -
then my world
was shattered . . .

Wishing you were
somehow here again . . .
wishing you were
somehow near . . .
Sometimes it seemed
if I just dreamed,
somehow you would
be here . . .

Wishing I could
hear your voice again . . .
knowing that I
never would . . .
Dreaming of you
won't help me to do
all that you dreamed
I could . . .

Passing bells
and sculpted angels,
cold and monumental
Seemed for you,
the wrong companions
You were warm and gentle


Too many years
fighting back tears . . .
Why can't the past
just die . . .?

Wishing you were
somehow here again . . .
knowing we must
say goodbye . . .
Try to forgive . . .
teach me to live . . .
give me the strength
to try . . .

No more memories,
no more silent tears . . .
No more gazing across
the wasted years . . .
Help me say
goodbye.

On My Own
From Les Miserables

Eponine:
So now I'm all alone again
Nowhere to turn no one to go to
Without a home without a friend
Without a face to say hello to
And now the night is clear,
And I can make believe he's near

Sometimes I walk alone at night
When everybody else is sleeping
I think of him and then I'm happy
With the company I'm keeping.
The city goes to bed
And I can live inside my head.

On my own
Pretending he's beside me
All alone I walk with him till morning
Without him I feel his arms around me
And when I lose my way I close my eyes
And he has found me.

In the rain the pavement shines like silver
All the lights are misty in the river
In the darkness the trees are full of starlight
And all I see is him and me forever and forever.

And I know its only in my mind
That I'm talking to myself and not to him
And although I know that he is blind
Still I say there's a way for us.

I love him
But when the night is over
He is gone, the river's just a river.
Without him the world around me changes
The trees are bare and everywhere
The streets are full of strangers

I love him
But everyday I'm learning
All my life I've only been pretending
Without me, his world will go on turning
A world that's full of happiness
That I have never known!
I love him
I love him
I love him
But only on my own.

I Enjoy Being a Girl
from Flower Drum Song

Linda:
I'm a girl and by me that's only great
I am proud that my silhouette is curvy
That I walk with a sweet and girlish gait
With my hips kinda swively and swervy.
I adore being dressed in something frilly
When my date comes to get me at my place
Out I go with my John or Joe or Billy
Like a filly who is ready for the race!

When I have a brand new hairdo
With my eyelashes all in curl
I float like the clouds on air do
I enjoy being a girl!

When men say I'm cute and funny
And my teeth aren't teeth but pearl
I just lap it up like honey
I enjoy being a girl!

I flip when a fellow sends me flowers
I drool over dresses made of lace
I talk on the telephone for hours
With a pound and a half of cream upon my face!

I'm strictly a female female
And my future I hope will be
In the home of a brave and free male
Who'll enjoy being a guy having a girl like me!

When men say I'm sweet as candy
As around in a dance we whirl
It goes to my head like brandy
I enjoy being a girl!

When someone with eyes that smolder
Says he loves every silken curl
That falls on my ivory shoulder
I enjoy being a girl!

When I hear the complementary whistle
That greets my bikini by the sea
I glare and I glower and I bristle!
But I'm happy to know the whistle's meant for me!

I'm strictly a female female
And my future I hope will be
In the home of a brave and free male
Who'll enjoy being a guy having a girl like me!
