Connie Talbot- I Have a Dream

 

 I have a dream, a song to sing 
To help me cope with anything 
If you see the wonder of a fairy tale 
You can take the future even if you fail 
I believe in angels 
Something good in everything I see 
I believe in angels 
When I know the time is right for me 
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream 

I have a dream, a fantasy 
To help me through reality 
And my destination makes it worth the while 
Pushing through the darkness still another mile 
I believe in angels 
Something good in everything I see 
I believe in angels 
When I know the time is right for me 
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream 
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream 

I have a dream, a song to sing 
To help me cope with anything 
If you see the wonder of a fairy tale 
You can take the future even if you fail 
I believe in angels 
Something good in everything I see 
I believe in angels 
When I know the time is right for me 
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream

In His Eyes - Jekyll and Hyde Broadway

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 talk 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!

Bring him home - Alfie Boe [Les Misérables in concert, the 25th anniversary]

God on high
Hear my prayer
In my need
You have always been there
He is young
He's afraid
Let him rest
Heaven blessed.
Bring him home
Bring him home

Bring him home.
He's like the son I might have known
If God had granted me a son.
The summers die
One by one
How soon they fly
On and on
And I am old
And will be gone.
Bring him peace
Bring him joy
He is young
He is only a boy
You can take
You can give
Let him be
Let him live
If I die
Let me die
Let him live
Bring him home
Bring him home
Bring him home.

Sierra Boggess & Andrew Lloyd Webber - Love Never Dies

Who knows when love begins?
Who knows what makes it start?
One day it's simply there, a life inside your heart
It slips into your thoughts
It infiltrates your soul
It takes you by surprise, then siezes full control

Try to deny it, and try to protest
But love won't let you go, once you've been posessed

Love never dies, love never falters
Once it has spoken, love is yours
Love never fades, love never alters
Hearts may get broken, love endures
Hearts may get broken, love endures
as soon as you submit
Surrender flesh and bone
That love takes on a life much bigger than your own
It uses you at whim
And drives you to despair
And forces you to feel more joy than you can bear

Love gives you pleasure and love brings you pain
And yet, when both are gone, love will still remain

Love never dies, love never falters
Once it has spoken, love is yours
Love never fades, love never alters
Life may be fleeting

Love never dies, love will continue
Love keeps on beating when you're gone
Love never dies, once it is in you
Life may be fleeting, love lives on
Life may be fleeting, love lives on

Jekyll & Hyde - Take Me As I Am


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..

(Les Miserables) 25th Anniversary - On My Own

And 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 near
Now I can make believe he's here

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 it's 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 every day I'm learning
All my life
I've only been pretending
Without me
His world would 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

"'Til I Hear You Sing" [Official Video for the single taken from Love Never Dies]

The day starts, the day ends
Time crawls by
Night steals in, pacing the floor
The moments creep,
Yet I can’t bear to sleep
Till I hear you sing

And weeks pass, and months pass
Seasons fly
Still you don’t walk through the door
And in a haze
I count the silent days
Till I hear you sing once more.

And sometimes at night time
I dream that you are there
But wake holding nothing but the empty air

And years come, and years go
Time runs dry
Still I ache down to the core
My broken soul
Can’t be alive and whole
Till I hear you sing once more

And music, your music
It teases at my ear
I turn and it fades away and you’re not here

Let hopes pass, let dreams pass
Let them die
Without you, what are they for?
I’ll always feel
No more than halfway real
Till I hear you sing once more
