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 faggots, 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
