Youre Amazing, Tom Lyrics


by Malcolm Gets and Will Chase. From Story of My Life, The.


ALVIN
You should have told me about that.


THOMAS
Alvin never would have understood.


ALVIN
Yes I would.


THOMAS
I had too much coming at me.


ALVIN
You should have said something.


THOMAS
I couldn't work. I couldn't write. I had to streamline my personal life.


(Alvin selects a story and reads.)

ALVIN
Money and Prizes.
A story about Thomas.


Having streamlined his personal life,
Thomas was able to focus on more important matters.


THOMAS
But as much as I tried to focus, there was always this voice in my head -
Alvin's patient, supportive and aggravating voice.


ALVIN
Another award? You are so talented, Tom.


(Thomas addresses an award ceremony audience.)

THOMAS
Thank you so much for this. Iím flattered but completely at a loss as to why youíve chosen me.


ALVIN
YOUíRE AMAZING, TOM.
AND TO PROVE IT
THEYíRE THROWING THIS BIG FANCY DO
FOR YOU.


YOUíRE AMAZING, TOM.
IF IíD KNOWN ABOUT THIS
IíD HAVE BEEN THERE TODAY.
WELL, ANYWAY.


IíM SURE YOU HAVE NO TIME TO CALL.
I KNOW THAT YOUR SCHEDULEíS TIGHT.
YOUíRE PROBABLY NEEDED AT SIGNINGS AND PARTIES.
CíMON, IíM YOUR PAL, ITíS ALL RIGHT.
YOUíRE AMAZING, TOM.


THOMAS
I'm frequently asked, "Where do your stories come from?" I don't know.
All I know is there's got to be thousands of stories in this head of mine just waiting for me to pick
one and write it down.


ALVIN
YOUíRE AMAZING, TOM.
YOUíRE EVERYTHING I ALWAYS KNEW YOU COULD BE.
TIMES THREE.


THOMAS
But it's lonely work. Just me and the blank page.


ALVIN
YOUíRE AMAZING, TOM.
AND TO THINK THAT YOU MADE IT HERE
ALL ON YOUR OWN.
WELL, WHOíD HAVE KNOWN?


YOUR WRITING HAS PASSION AND SKILL
WHILE OTHERS ARE CHURNING OUT FLUFF.
ITíS EASY TO PANDER TO LOW EXPECTATIONS,
BUT QUALITY STORIES ARE TOUGH.


THOMAS
And the indescribable feeling of writing those first few words knowing
I'm on my way to changing peopleís lives.


ALVIN
WHAT YOU DO IS IMPORTANT.
WHAT YOU DO IS AN ART.
WHAT YOUíRE DOING IS FEEDING YOUR READERS
IDEAS WITH HEART.


LETíS ADMIT IT, YOUíRE MAKING
THE PLANET A HAPPIER PLACE.
ITíS BECAUSE OF THE MINDS YOU ARE SAVING
THAT SOMEONE IS WAVING
ANOTHER AWARD IN YOUR FACE.


YOUíRE AMAZING, TOM.


THOMAS
Every one of my stories - The Butterfly, The Marvelous Mystical Bookstore,
The Memory Robe, even the incredibly popular Mrs. Remington's Hallowe'en -
every one was up here just waiting for me to set it free.


ALVIN
YOUíRE AMAZING, TOM. THE RESULT OF THE CHOICES YOU MADE IS SUCCESS.
I GUESS.


YOUíRE AMAZING, TOM.
ITíS HARD WHEN YOU HAVE TO LEAVE
SOME THINGS BEHIND.
WELL NEVER MIND.


SOME PEOPLE MARCH IN PARADES.
WHILE OTHERS JUST WATCH THEM GO BY.


THOMAS
Of course, I can't leave the stage without a few thank-yous.


ALVIN
SO SOAK UP THE PRAISE AND ENJOY THE OVATION.


THOMAS
My publisher.


ALVIN
THOUGH NOBODY SPECIAL WILL SHARE YOUR ELATION.


THOMAS
My agent.


ALVIN
MONEY AND PRIZES ARE FINE CONSOLATION
AND TANGIBLY INDICATE WHY...


THOMAS
And the single most important person in all of this. The one who buys my book.


ALVIN
... YOUíRE AMAZING, TOM.


(Thomas confronts Alvin.)


THOMAS
ITíS ELUSIVE, ALVIN.
ITíS LIKE ANGELS IN THE SNOW.
TURN YOUR BACK AND THERE THEY GO.


(Thomas selects a story.)


THOMAS
Angels in the Snow.
A Work In Progress.
