the impossible

You can't rule out the impossible because you never know which of your assumptions about what was possible turn out in the real universe to be false -- Orson Scott Card "Ender's Shadow"

The Last 5 Years

The last five years indeed... The show resonated more so than I would admit. So it seems, things are never simple or straightforward. But still, really, still....

  2. "Shiksa Goddess" - Jamie *Replaced "I Could Be in Love With Someone Like You" from the Chicago production
  3. "See I'm Smiling" - Cathy
  4. "Moving Too Fast" - Jamie
  5. "I'm A Part of That" - Cathy
  6. "The Schmuel Song" - Jamie
  7. "A Summer in Ohio" - Cathy
  8. "The Next Ten Minutes" - Jamie & Cathy
  9. "A Miracle Would Happen/When You Come Home to Me" - Jamie/Cathy
  10. "Climbing Uphill/Audition Sequence" - Cathy
  11. "If I Didn't Believe in You" - Jamie
  12. "I Can Do Better Than That" - Cathy
  13. "Nobody Needs to Know" - Jamie
  14. "Goodbye Until Tomorrow/I Could Never Rescue You" - Jamie & Cathy

"Still Hurting" - Cathy
What about lies, (Jamie)
What about things
That you swore to be true
What about you

Jamie is sure something wonderful died
Jamie decides it's his right to decide
Jamie's got secrets he doesn't confide
And I'm still hurting

Go and hide and run away
Run away, run and find something better
Go and ride the sun away
Run away like it's simple
Like it's right...

"If I Didn't Believe in You" - Jamie
Well, then talk to me, Cathy
Talk to me
If I didn't believe in you
We'd never have gotten this far
If I didn't believe in you
And all of the ten thousand women you are
If I didn't think you could do
Anything you ever wanted to
If I wasn't certain that you'd come through somehow
THe fact of the matter is, Cathy
I wouldn't be standing here now

"Nobody Needs to Know" - Jamie
Hold on, clip these wings -
Things get out of hand
All right, it's over, it's done
No one will understand
No one will understand...

We build a treehouse
I keep it from shaking
Little more glue every time that it breaks
Perfectly balanced
And then I start making
Conscious, deliberate mistakes

"Goodbye Until Tomorrow/I Could Never Rescue You"
I'm not the only one who's hurting here
I don't know what the hell is left to do
You never saw how far the crack had opened
You never knew I had run out of rope and

I could never rescue you
All you ever wanted
But I could never rescue you
No matter how I tried
All I could do was love you hard
And let you go

No matter how I tried
All I could do was love you
God, I loved you so
So we could fight
Or we could wait
Or I could go...


That's when you realize... I realize...

I have no more tears... But layers upon layers upon layers, of sadness.


The songs are really good btw; the musical's really good too.. They are making a new film adaptation starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan!!
