1. This Is The Moment
Frank Wildhorn/Leslie Bricusse
Fra "Jekyll & Hyde" Dr. Jekyll:

This is the moment, this is the day
When I send all my doubts
And demons on their way
Every endeavour I have made ever
Is coming into play
Is here and now today.

This is the moment, this is the time
When the momentum and the moment
Are in rhyme
Give me this moment, this precious chance
I'll gather up my past
And make some sense at last.

This it the moment, when all I've done
All of the dreaming
Scheming and screaming become one
This is the day, see it sparkle and shine
When all I've lived for becomes mine

For all these years
I've faced the world alone
And now the time has come
To prove to them
I made it on my own

This is the moment, my final test
Destiny beckoned
I never reckoned second best
I won't look down
I must not fall
This is the moment
The sweetest moment
Of the all

This is the moment
Damn all the odds
This day or never
I'll sit forever
With the gods
And when I look back
I will always recall
Moment for moment
This was the moment
The greatest moment
Of them all!

2. Being Alive
Stephen Sondheim
Fra "Company"
Robert:

Somebody hold me too close
Somebody hurt me too deep
Somebody sit in my chair
And ruin my sleep
And make me aware
Of being alive
Being alive

Somebody need me too much
Somebody know me too well
Somebody pull me up short
And put me through hell
And give me support
For being alive

Make me alive
Make me alive
Make me confused
Mock me with praise
Let me be used
Vary my days

But alone
Is alone
Not alive

Somebody crowd me with love
Somebody force me to care
Somebody make me come through
I'll always be there as frightened as you
To help us survive
Being alive
Being alive
Being alive

3. Bui-Doi
Claude-Michel Schönberg/Alain Boublil
& Richard Maltby Jr.
Fra "Miss Saigon"
John

Like all survivors I once thought
When I'm home I won't give a damn
But now I know I'm caught
I'll never leave Vietnam

War isn't over when it ends
Some pictures never leave your mind
They are the faces of the children
The ones we left behind

They're called Bui-doi
The dust of life
Conceived in hell
And born in strife
They are the living reminders
Of all the good we failed to do
We can't forget, must not forget
That they are all our children too

These kids hit walls on every side
They don't belong in any place
Their history the can't even hide
It's written on their face

I never thought one day I'd plead
For half breeds from a land that's torn
But then I saw a camp for children
Whose crime was being born

They're called Bui-doi
The dust of life
Conceived in hell
And born in strife
We owe them fathers and a family
A loving home they never knew
Because we know deep in our hearts
That they are all our children too

These are souls in need
They need us to give
Someone has to pay
For their chance to live
Help me try
They are the living reminders
Of all the good we failed to do
That's why we know
Deep in our hearts
That they are all
Our children too

4. Why God Why?
Claude-Michel Schönberg/Alain Boublil
& Richard Maltby Jr.
Fra "Miss Saigon"
Chris

Why does Saigon never sleep at night?
Why does this girl smell of orange trees?
How can I feel good when nothing's right?
Why is she cool when there's no breeze?

Vietnam
You don't give answers do you, friend?
Just questions that don't ever end

Why God? Why today?
I'm all through here, on my way
There's nothing left here that I'll miss
Why send me now a night like this?

Who is this girl in this rusty bed?
Why am I back in a filthy room?
Why is her voice ringing in my head?
Why am I high on her cheap perfume?

Vietnam
Hey look, I mean you no offence
But why does nothing here make sense?

Why God? Show your hand
Why can't one guy understand
I've been with girls who knew much more
I never felt confused before

Why me? What's your plan?
I can't help her, no one can
I liked my memories as they were
But now I'll leave remembering her

When I went home before
No one talked of the war
What they knew from TV
Didn't have a thing to do with me
I went back and re-upped
Sure Saigon is corrupt
It felt better to be here
Driving for the embassy

'Cos here, if you can pull a string
a guy like me lives like a king
just as long as you don't believe anything

Why God? Why this face?
Why such beauty in this place?
I liked my memories as they were
But now I'll leave remembering her
Just her

5. The Last Night Of The World
Duet with Joanna Ampil
Claude-Michel Schönberg/Alain Boublil
& Richard MaltbyJr.
Fra "Miss Saigon"
Chris

In a place that won't let us feel
In a life where nothing seems real
I have found you, I have found you

Kim

In a world that's moving too fast
In a world where nothing can last
I will hold you, I will hold you

Chris

Our lives will change when tomorrow comes

Kim

Tonight our hearts drown the distant drums

Chris

And we have music alright
Tearing the night

Both

A song played on a solo saxophone

Chris

A crazy sound

Kim

A lonely sound

Both

A cry that tells us love goes on and on
Played on a solo saxophone
It's telling me to hold you tight and dance
Like it's the last night of the world

Chris

On the other side of the Earth
There's a place where life still has worth
I will take you

Kim

I'll go with you

Chris

You won't believe all the things you'll see
I know 'cos you'll see them all with me

Both

If we're together, that's when
We'll hear it again

Both

A song played on a solo saxophone
A crazy sound
A lonely sound
A cry that tells us love goes on and on
Played on a solo saxophone
It's telling me to hold you tight and dance
Like it's the last night of the world

Kim

Dreams were all I ever knew

Chris

Dreams you won't need when I'm through

Both

Anywhere we may be
I will sing with you
Our song

So stay with me and hold me tight and dance
Like it's the last night of the world

6. Gethsemane
Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice
Fra "Jesus Christ Superstar"
Jesus

I only want to say, if there is a way
Take this cup away from me
For I don't want to taste its poison
Feel it burn me
I have changed
I'm not as sure as when we started
Then I was inspired, now I'm sad and tired
Listen, surely I've exceeded expectations
Tried for three years, seems like thirty
Could you ask as much from any other man?

But if I die
See the saga through
And do the things you ask of me
Let them hate me, hit me, hurt me
Nail me to their tree
Id' wanna know, I'd wanna know, my God
I'd wanna know, I'd wanna know, my God
Id wanna see, I'd wanna see, my God
I'd wanna see, I'd wanna see, my God

Why I should die
Would I be more noticed
Than I ever was before?
Would the things I've said an done
Matter anymore?
I'd have to know, id' have to know, my Lord
I'd have to know, I'd have to know, my Lord
I'd have to see, I'd have to see, my Lord
I'd have to see, I'd have to see, my Lord

If I die what will be my reward?
If I die what will be my reward?
I'd have to know, I'd have to know, my Lord
I'd have to know, I'd have to know, my Lord
Why should I die? Why should I die?

Can you show me now
That I would not be killed in vain?
Show me just a little
Of your omnipresent brain
Show me there's a reason
For your wanting me to die
You're far too keen on where and how
But not so hot on why

Alright, I'll die, just watch me die
See how I die, see how I die...

Then I was inspired, now I'm sad and tired
After all I've tried for three years
Seems like ninety
Why then am I scared to finish
What I started?
What you started, I didn't start it

God, thy will is hard but you hold every card
I will drink your cup of poison, nail me to
your cross and break me
Bleed me, beat me, kill me, take me now
Before I change my mind
Before I change my mind

7. Pity The Child
Benny Anderson/Björn Ulvaeus/Tim Rice
Fra "Chess"
Frederick

When I was nine I learned survival
Taught myself not to care
I was my single good companion
Taking my comfort there

Up in my room I planned my conquests
On my own, never asked for a helping hand
Noone would understand

I never asked the pair who fought below
Just in case they said no

Pity the child who has ambition
Knows what he wants to do
Knows that he'll never fit the system
Others expect him to

Pity the child who knew his parents
Saw their faults
Saw their love die before his eyes
Pity the child that wise

He never asked: Did I cause your distress?
Just in case they said yes

When I was twelve my father moved out
Left with a whimper, not with a shout
I didn't miss him, he made it perfectly clear
I was a fool and probably queer

Fool that I was I thought this would bring
Those he had left closer together
She made her move
The moment he crawled away

I was the last the woman told
She never let her bed get cold
Someone moved in, I shut my door
Someone to treat her
Just the same way as before

I took the road of least resistance
I had my game to play
I had the skill and more the hunger
Easy to get away
Pity the child with no such weapons
No defence
No escape from the ties that bind
Always a step behind

I never called to tell her all I'd done
I was only her son

Pity the child but not forever
Not if he stays that way
He can get all he ever wanted
If he's prepared to pay
Pity instead the careless mother
What she missed
What she lost when she let me go
And I wonder does she know?
I wouldn't call, a crazy thing to do
Just in case she sad:
Who?

8. Love Changes Everything
Andrew Lloyd Webber/Don Black & Charles Hart
Fra "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 forever
Yes, love, love changes everything
Brings you glory, brings you shame
Nothing in the world will ever be the same

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 everything
Live or perish in the flames

Love will never, never let you be the same
Love will never, never let you be the same

9. Light At The End Of The Tunnel
Andrew Lloyd Webber/Richard Stilgoe
Fra "Starlight Express"
Poppa

Diesel is for unbelievers, electricity is wrong
Steam has got the power
That will pull us along

There's a light and the end of the tunnel
There's a light and the end of the tunnel
The inside might be as black as the night
There's a light and the end of the tunnel
There's a light and the end of the tunnel
The inside might be as black as the night
But at the end of the tunnel there's a light

It's the power of James Watt
The steaming Scot
The man who watched the pot and said
Hey, I've got a brilliant plot
When the steam is hot
It seems to make a lot of power

It could turn a wheel
It could drive it down a track
It could drive it with a beat
With enough left over for a Wooo-wooo

He saw the light and the end of the tunnel
He saw the light and the end of the tunnel
Well thanks, James Watt, for watching the pot
He saw the light and the end of the tunnel
He saw the light and the end of the tunnel
The inside might be as black as the night
But at the end of the tunnel there's a light

There are dark days ahead
When the power goes dead
When the oil runs dry
What can we try
But it don't shine at night
Nuclear fission makes nasty emission

Soon the pistons will be humming
Steam will have a second coming

We see the light and the end of the tunnel
We see the light and the end of the tunnel
Just dig a hole and haul out the coal
We see the light and the end of the tunnel
We see the light and the end of the tunnel
So let the water boil, goodbye to oil
At the end of the tunnel there's a light

We see the light

We see the distant gleam
At the end of the tunnel there's a light
Starlight

10. Empty Chairs At Empty Tables
Claude-Michel Schönberg/Alain Boublil
& Herbert Kretzmer
Fra "Les Miserables"
Marius

There's a grief that can't be spoken
There's a pain goes on and on
Empty chairs at empty tables
Now my friends are dead and gone

Here they talked of revolution
Here it was they lit the flame
Here they sang about tomorrow
And tomorrow never came

From the table in the corner
They could see a world reborn
And they rose with voices ringing
I can hear them now
The very words that they had sung
Became their last communion
On the lonely barricade at dawn

Oh, my friends, my friends forgive me
That I live and you are gone
There's a grief that can't be spoken
There's a pain goes on and on

Phantom faces at the window
Phantom shadows on the floor
Empty chairs at empty tables
Where my friends will meet no more

Oh, my friends, my friends don’t' ask me
What your sacrifice was for
Empty chairs at empty tables
Where my friends will sing
No more

11. Stars
Claude-Michel Schönberg/Alain Boublil
& Herbert Kretzmer
Fra "Les Miserables"
Javert

There out in the darkness
A fugitive running
Fallen from grace
Fallen from grace
God be my witness
I never shall yield
Till we come face to face

He knows his way in the dark
But mine is the way of the Lord
And those who follow
The path of the righteous
Shall have their reward
And if they fall as Lucifer fell
The flame, the sword

Stars
In your multitudes
Scarce to be counted
Filling the darkness
With order and light
You are the sentinels
Silent and sure
Keeping watch in the night

You know your place in the skies
You hold your course and your aim
And each in your season and returns
And is always the same
And if you fall as Lucifer fell
You fall in flame

And so it must be
For so it is written
On the doorways to Paradise
That those who falter and those who fall
Must pay the price

Lord, let me find him
That I may see him safe behind bars
I will never rest till then
This I swear
This I swear by the stars

12. The Music Of The Night
Andrew Lloyd Webber/Charles Hart
& Richard Stilgoe
Fra " The Phantom Of The Opera"
Phantom

Night time sharpens
Heightens each sensation
Silently the senses abandon their defences

Slowly, gently night unfurls in splendour
Grasp it, sense it tremulous and tender
Turn your face away
From the garish light of day
Turn your thoughts away
From cold, unfeeling light
And listen to the music of the night

Close your eyes and surrender
To your darkest dreams
Purge your thoughts of the life
You knew before
Close your eyes
Let your spirit start to soar…..
And you'll live as you've never lived before

Softly, deftly music shall caress you
Hear it, feel it secretly possess you
Open up your mind
Let your fantasies unwind
In this darkness
Which you know you cannot fight
The darkness of the music of the night

Let your mind start a journey
Through a strange, new world
Leave all thoughts of the world
You knew before
Let your soul take you
Where you long to be ….!
Only then can you belong to me

Floating, falling, sweet intoxication
Touch me, trust me, savour each sensation
Let the dream begin
Let your darker side give in
To the power of the music that I write
The power of the music of the night

You alone can make my song take flight
Help me make the music of the night

13. All I Ask Of You
Duet med Susanne Elmark
Andrew Lloyd Webber/Charles Hart
& Richard Stilgoe
Fra " The 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'll love me
Every waking moment
Turn my mead
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 you
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
Let 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

Anywhere you go let me go too
Love me
That's all I ask of you

14. Somewhere
Leonard Bernstein/Stephen Sondheim
Fra "West Side Story"
There's a place for us
Somewhere a place for us
Peace and quiet and open air
Wait for us somewhere

There's a time for us
Someday a time for us
Time together with time to spare
Time to learn, time to care

Someday
Somewhere
We'll find a new way of living
We'll find a way of forgiving
Somewhere

There's a place for us
A time and a place for us
Hold my hand and we're halfway there
Hold my hand and I'll take you there

Somehow
Somewhere….

Somewhere

There's a place for us
A time and a place for us
Hold my hand and we're halfway there
Hold my hand and I'll take you there

Somehow
Someday
Somewhere

15. Send In The Clowns
Stephen Sondheim
Fra "A Little Night Music"
Isn't it rich?
Are we a pair?
Me here at last on the ground
You in midair…
Send in the clowns

Isn't it bliss?
Don't you approve?
One who keeps tearing around
One who can't move…
Where are the clowns?
Send in the clowns

Just when I'd stopped
Opening doors
Finally knowing
The one that I wanted was yours
Making my entrance again
With my usual flair
Noone is there

Don't you love farce?
My fault, I fear
I thought that you'd want what I want
Sorry, my dear
But where are the clowns?
Quick, send in the clowns
Don't bother, they're here

What a surprise
Who could foresee
I'd come to feel about you
What you felt about me?
Why only now when I see
That you're drifting away
What a surprise
What a cliché

Isn't it rich?
Isn't it queer?
Losing my timing this late in my career
And where are the clowns?
There ought to be clowns
Well, maybe next year...
