“Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera!”
We move to fast
We miss so much
We seldom see all the miracles in front of us

I wont get to heaven. Why not raise a little hell? No way I’ll se heaven. So let’s raise a little hell!
—“Raise a Little Hell” - Bonnie & Clyde
You can go from week to week, you can go from year to year;
not a hand placed on your cheek, not a whisper in your ear.
You can make it through okay, you can live and laugh, and flirt.
It’s quite easy in the day; its just the nights that always hurt.
So let darkness come, ‘cause that will be fine;
for I’ll have a soul entangled in mine.
We’ll do as we please, and please… hold me tight
—“I Will Be Loved Tonight” - I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change
When I was a boy, world was better spot
What was so was so, what was not was not
Now, I am a man, world have changed a lot
Some things nearly so, others nearly not
—“A Puzzlement” - The King And I
Yet in his eyes, all the sadness of the world. Those pleading eyes that both threaten and adore
—“Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again” -Phantom of the Opera
Hope doesn’t grow on trees. We make our own. And I am here to tell you, it is the hardest thing you will ever do.
The older you grow, the harder it to know what to think, what to do, where to go
—Allegro (Rodgers and Hammerstein)
You’re surrounded forever, by more love than you know
— Ghost the Musical
You can give up, bitter and battered or you can slowly build a beautiful city
—“Beautiful City” - Godspell
Cuz the boy has a bite better far than his bite and you bet I’ll bite too
