Must I lie?
How can I ever face my fellow men?
How can I ever face myself again?
My soul belongs to God, I know, I made that bargain long ago.
Who Am I?, Jean Valjean in Les Miserables
Here in this room, he calls me softly
Somewhere inside, hiding
Somehow I know he's always with me
He, the unseen genius
Angel of Music, Christine in The Phantom of the Opera
(Just for the record, I would like to say that, even though I have never seen a stage version of this musical, and despite lots of people's dreadful opinions of the movie version, I actually do sort of like this movie. Yes, I really do.)
There's a time for us
Someday a time for us
Time together and time to spare
Time to learn, time to care!
Somewhere, Tony in West Side Story
I feel the room swaying, and the band's playing
One of my old favorite songs from way back when
Here's my hat, fellas, I'm staying where I'm at, fellas,
Dolly ain't never going away again!
Hello, Dolly!, Mrs. Dolly Levi in Hello, Dolly!
The moment I saw him smile
I knew he was just my style
My only regret is we've never met
Though I live at fifty-one thirty-five Kensington Avenue,
And he lives at fifty-one thirty-three
The Boy Next Door, Esther Smith in Meet Me In St. Louis
Perhaps I had a wicked childhood
Perhaps I had a miserable youth
But somewhere in wicked, miserable past
There must have been a moment of truth
Something Good, Maria and Captain Von Trapp in The Sound of Music
I learned to sew and I learned to bake
I even made and angel food cake
On Saturday evening, when folks dropped in
My house was as neat as a brand-new pin
I thought by learning each social grace
Some likely chap might forget my face
I can't understand it, I've knitted and purled,
But my, goodness me, it's a great big world.
It's a Great Big World, Alma in The Harvey Girls
And there was music
And there were wonderful roses, they tell me
In sweet fragrant meadows of dawn, and dew,
There was love all around
But I never heard it singing
No, I never heard it at all
Till there was you.
Till There Was You, Marian in The Music Man
Look at you, like a little lost calf
I don't mean to laugh or tease you.
Where's your sense, there are so many girls
With long golden curls to please you.
Love comes and goes away,
You're hurtin' bad tonight.
Oh, love comes and goes away
I'm older, ain't I always led you right?
Love Never Goes Away, Adam Ponipee in Seven Brides For Seven Brothers
Just a small church
With a big steeple
Just a few people that both of us know
And we'll have love, laughter
Be happy ever after
Me and my girl!
Me and My Girl, Bill Snibson in Me and My Girl
Burn out ends of smoky days
The stale cold smell of morning
A street lamp dies, another night is over
Another day is dawning!
Answer: Memory, Grisabella in Cats
(I would have put a picture here, but all the pictures I could find were so scary that I decided not to!)
Just when I stopped
Finally knowing the one that I wanted was yours
Making my entrance again with my usual flair
Sure of my lines
No one is there.
Send in the Clowns, Desiree in A Little Night Music
