Joanne
Maureen
Benny
Collins
Mimi Marquez
MARK
How do you documentry real life
When real life is getting more
Like fiction each day
Headlines -- bread-lines
Blow my mind
And now this deadline
"Eviction -- or pay"
Rent!
ROGER
How do you write a song
When the chords sound wrong
Though they once sounded right and rare
When the notes are sour
Where is the power
You once had to ignite the air
MARK
And we're hungry and frozen
ROGER
Some life that we've chosen
TOGETHER
How we gonna pay
How we gonna pay
How we gonna pay
Last year's rent
MIMI
What's the time?
Well it's gotta be close to midnight
My body's talking to me
It says, "Time for danger"
It says "I wanna commit a crime
Wanna be the cause of a fight
Wanna put on a tight skirt and flirt
With a stranger"
I've had a knack from way back
At breaking the rules once I learn the games
Get up - life's too quick
I know someplace sick
Where this chick'll dance in the flames
We don't need any money
I always get in for free
You can get in too
If you get in with me
Let's go out tonight
I have to go out tonight
You wanna play?
Let's run away
We won't be back before it's Christmas day
Take me out tonight (meow)
MAUREEN AND JOANNE
Take me for what I am
Who I was meant to be Who I was meant to be
And if you give a damn If Ya Give A Damn then go
Take me baby or leave me
Take me baby
Or leave me
Guess I'm leaving
I'm gone!
ANGEL
You be my king
And I'll be your castle
COLLINS
No you'll be my queen
And I'll be your moat
BOTH
I think they meant it
When they said you can't buy love
Now I know you can rent it
A new lease you are, my love,
On life
All my life
I've longed to discover
Something as true as this is
COLLINS ANGEL
So with a thousand
Sweet kisses
I'll cover you
If you're cold
And you're lonely
With a thousand
Sweet kisses
I'll cover you
You've got one
Nickel only
With a thousand
Sweet kisses
I'll cover you
When you're worn
Out and tired
With a thousand
Sweet kisses
I'll cover you
When your heart
Has expired
BOTH
Oh lover I'll cover you
Oh lover I'll cover you
A GIRL
No way to make a living, masochism, pain, perfection
Muscle spasms, chiropractors, short careers, eating disorders!
ALL
Film!
MARK
Adventure, tedium, no family, boring locations,
Dark rooms, perfect faces, egos, money, Hollywood and sleaze!
ALL
Music!
ANGEL
Food of love, emotion, mathematics, isolation,
Rhythm, feeling, power, harmony, and heavy competition!
ALL
Anarchy!
COLLINS AND MAUREEN
Revolution, justice, screaming for solutions,
Forcing changes, risk, and danger
Making noise and making pleas!
ALL
To f*ggots, lezzies, dykes, cross dressers too
MAUREEN
To me
MARK
To me
COLLINS AND ANGEL
To me
ALL
To you, and you and you, you and you
To people living with, living with, living with
Not dying from disease
Let he among us without sin
Be the first to condemn
La vie Boheme
La vie Boheme
La vie Boheme
MARK
Anyone out of the mainstream
Is anyone in the mainstream?
Anyone alive--with a sex drive
OTHERS
La vie Boheme
La vie Boheme
La vie Boheme
MARK
Tear down the wall
Aren't we all?
The opposite of war isn't peace...
It's creation!
ALL
La vie Boheme
MARK
The riot continues. The Christmas tree goes up in flames.
The snow dances. Oblivious, Mimi and Roger share a small,
lovely kiss
ALL
Viva la vie Boheme!
MAUREEN
Only thing
MIMI
Would you light my Candle
COMPANY
In diapers - report cards
In spoke wheels - in speeding tickets
In contracts - dollars
in funerals - in births
In - five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you figure
A last year on Earth?
Figure in love
Figure in love
Figure in love
Measure in love
Seasons of love
Seasons of love
ROGER
Who do you think you are?
Barging in on me and my guitar
Little girl - hey
The door is that way
You better go you know
The fire's out anyway
Take your powder - take your candle
Your sweet whisper
I just can't handle
Well take your hair in the moonlight
Your brown eyes - good-bye, goodnight
I should tell you I should tell you
I should tell you I should -- no!
Another time - Another place
Our temperature would climb
There'd be a long embrace
We'd do another dance
It'd be another play
Looking for romance?
Come back another day
Another day
MIMI
The heart may freeze or it can burn
The pain will ease if I can learn
There is no future
There is no past
I live this moment
As my last
There's only us
There's only this
Forget regret
Or life is yours to miss
No other road
No other way
No day but today
Roger
Time flies- time dies
Glory- one blaze of glory
One blaze of glory- glory
MARK
Don't breathe too deep
Don't think all day
Dive into work
Drive the other way
That drip of hurt
That pint of shame
Goes away
Just play the game
You're living in America
At the end of the millennium
You're living in America
Leave your conscience at the tone
And when you're living in America
At the end of the millennium
You're what you own
ROGER
How'd I let you slip away
When I'm longing so to hold you
Now I'd die for one more day
'Cause there's something I should have told you
Yes there's something I should have told you
When I looked into your eyes
Why does distance make us wise?
You were the song all along
And before this song dies
COLLINS
I've longed to discover
Something as true
As this is
(The following is sung simultaneously.)
JOANNE AND SOLOIST
So with a thousand sweet kisses
I'll cover you with a thousand sweet kisses
I'll cover you with a thousand sweet kisses
I'll cover you with a thousand sweet kisses
I'll cover you
COLLINS
If you're cold and you're lonely
You've got one nickel only
When you're worn out and tired
When your heart has expired
COMPANY
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred moments so dear
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred -- measure a year
Oh lover I'll cover you
Oh lover I'll cover you
COLLINS AND COMPANY
Oh lover
I'll cover you
Oh lover
COLLINS
I'll cover you
