Oh Wonder – Ultralife

[Verse 1]
Lovesick the beat inside my head
Waves struck a sea of bitterness
Lights out solo in the blue
Before I found you

[Pre-Chorus]
Days passed slowly, lost and low
You gave me hope and now there’s only

[Chorus]
Blood running in my veins
I’ve never been here before
And I got love falling like the rain
I never could’ve asked for more
I got so much soul inside my bones
Take a look at me now
I’m young forever in the sun
Ever since you came I’m living ultralife (ultralife, ultralife)
I’m living ultralife (ultralife, ultralife)
I’m living ultralife

[Verse 2]
Turn down the voice inside my head
Cos heaven only knows why we feel this emptiness
But I will climb out, find another view
Now I’ve found you

[Pre-Chorus]
Days passed slowly, lost and low
You gave me hope and now there’s only

[Chorus]
Blood running in my veins
I’ve never been here before
And I got love falling like the rain
I never could’ve asked for more
I got so much soul inside my bones
Take a look at me now
I’m young forever in the sun
Ever since you came I’m living ultralife
Ultralife with me, ultralife with me
Ultralife with me, ultralife with me

[Bridge]
(Ultralife with me)
Found me on a basement floor
(Ultralife with me)
Back when I had lost it all
(Ultralife with me)
Told me what the fight was for
(Ultralife with me)
And I’m not giving up no more
(Ultralife with me)
You elevate the life in me
(Ultralife with me)
Illuminate the in-between
(Ultralife with me)
Forever gonna feel this free
(Ultralife with me)
And I’m not giving up now

Lovesick the beat inside my head
Waves struck a sea of bitterness
Lights out solo in the blue
But now I’ve found you

[Chorus]
Blood running in my veins
I’ve never been here before
And I got love falling like the rain
I never could’ve asked for more
I got so much soul inside my bones
Take a look at me now
I’m young forever in the sun
Ever since you came I’m living ultralife
(Ultralife with me, ultralife with me)
I’m living ultralife
(Ultralife with me, ultralife with me)
Oh, we’re living ultralife
We’re living ultralife
I’m living ultralife
(Ultralife with me)

Joyner Lucas – Ultrasound

[Intro]
Yo, wassup, this is Joyner, I’m unable to take your call right now, leave me a brief message and I’ll get back to you, peace

[Interlude]
You know, you really piss me off sometimes
I spent all night waiting for you to come home
And I’ve woken up without you
I don’t know where you are or why you are not answering your phone
But I’m starting to get worried
I really hope you’re not pissing away the last of our money at the stupid casino again
Because you know my next check won’t be here till the third and we literally have nothing right now
If you did go to the casino and you have more money then…
I guess…

[Verse 1]
Get the fuck off of my dick, hoe
‘Fuck you mean?
I don’t think you notice what you done to me (yeah)
Yeah I think you should know that you were under me
If anybody got a problem tell ’em they can come to me
What the fuck you mean? This is not allowed
Better calm it down
‘Cause all you new niggas just watered down
I can see through you like a muthafuckin’ ultrasound ooh
Okay be ready to hold up then
I’m ready to roll up on them, ready to mow them, make your motor spin
I’ll blow the boat up then be gone and wonderin’ what you noticing
A couple of hoes that I’ve been boning since a nigga was only ten
I’m tryina’ to get all up in that pussy harder than my youngin’ (wo)
You fallin’ and you love it (yeah)
Can’t stand the heat but you up all in the oven (sha)
I remember when I used to ball on a budget

[Verse 2]
(Hol’ up) Now wait a minute
You finally got some paper couldn’t wait to get it (ya)
And it don’t really matter ’cause you’re still lame
No matter how much cake you got, it wouldn’t make a difference (don’t matter)
I’m tired of all you rappers wantin’ free verses
The fuck up outta here this how I make a livin’
(that’s how I make a livin’)
I dive up in that pussy like Jamaican niggas
I spend all of my dollars on some Laker tickets (yup)
I think if I die young they gon’ miss me too
I think I’ma buy guns maybe empty too (bla bla bla)
I think I’ma sell drugs to the kids at school
I think I’ma get buzzed if it gets me through
I think I’ma need to hide if they know where I live (yeah)
I think I’ma drink and drive til’ I total the whip (whoa)
I think I’ma get high give her all of the dick
Even if she ain’t mine so she knows what it is, wait
(she know what it is)

[Verse 3]
Hold up though
I’m ready to roll up on them, ready to mow them, make your motor boat
I blow the boat up, then be gone, I’m wonderin’ what you notice though
A couple of hoes that I’ve been boning since a nigga was on it though
My nigga what’s your worst fear? I been running from the start
Scared to be a man, tryna hustle in the dark
Running down the stairs, gotta hustle every March
Eating supper, getting filled, watch it rumble in the Bronx
I slip inside her [?] the heart
Nigga I don’t trust you plus you never play the part
I been living in the ghetto where the devils pray to God, nigga
I said
I been living in the ghetto where the devils pray to God, hold up
I been living in the–
Yeah
Look
Get the fuck off of my dick
Wait a minute (wait a minute)
I’m a fuck your bitch to let my neighbor hit it (neighbor hit it)
She told me "maybe we could go on a date"
I told her "no way, but we could say we did it"
I’m such a lost soul, even my mom knows
That’s why she hate a nigga (hate a nigga)
I’m such an asshole, even Superman, couldn’t save a nigga
(Joyner)
Get the fuck off–
Of my cock

[Outro]
Yo, wassup, this is Joyner, I’m unable to take your call right now, leave me a brief message and I’ll get back to you, peace

Free Ackrite – Don’t Fuck Around

It’s fuckin ackrite
Question is can I get some? Know what I’m saying?
Ack-rite, bitch
When I see you in the spot, you just act right, you know what I’m saying?
When I yank you by the fuckin’ arm
Don’t be looking at a nigga crazy
Just give up the digits and be the fuck out, you know what I’m saying?
Let me break it down for y’all

It was just one of those days
When I wanted to catch sunrays
Have fun and get blunted on a Sunday afternoon
My nigga Babe got room, grab the gat for misbehavors
And the chocolate faded boom, flossin hip-hop tunes
Zoom-zoom like the Commodores
Wonder will we have drama or, end up clowning whores
Around the full good-to-go girls
Like them Barbary Coast girls, riding shotgun, baby
I be postin all-world in the ride
Sipping 151 that gave me too much pride to back down
Soon as we get to The Beach I’mma put my fuckin mack down
I’m playin lead, not the background
It’s time to put Bronson on the map now
Walk with my hand on my Johnson, crack a smile
Cuties peep my style, if I don’t get some ackrite
I’mma have to ack-wild

Blunt in my left hand, drink in my right
Strap by my waistline, cause niggas don’t fight
Sucker free for life, so you better think twice
(Aight? And a give a nig’ some ackrite)
I’m the type of nigga playa-haters don’t like
Snatchin’ up your honey for some late night hype
And snobby-ass bitches get slapped out of spite
(Aight? So give a nig’ some ackrite, right)

Uh drink kicking in, I’m stimulated
For those that don’t know big words: I’m fuckin’ faded
Eighty-three degrees, ease to a shaded spot
Our first spot was cool till some gangsters made it hot
Now we plot and pose
Plus we watchin’ hoes, with lots of flesh exposed
Getting swarmed by those type of niggas
With no game but brown-nose
So I impose only like pros can
"Yo, is this your man?" "No"
Grab the bitch’s hand, "I’m Hittman"
Bling! Gold chain gleam
"You’re very eligible for my summer league team"
Maybe too extreme cause the sister got steamed
Then Miss Thing tried to scream on my brethren
I got mad, spit flame on the name
Stefan, tattooed on her arm
Ho you ain’t the bomb, must be a dyke
Witcho’ lips swoll, and give a nig’ some ackrite

Blunt in my left hand, drink in my right
Strap by my waistline, cause niggas don’t fight
Sucker free for life, so you better think twice
(And a give a nig’ some ackrite)
I’m the type of nigga playa-haters don’t like
Snatchin’ up your honey for some late night hype
And snobby-ass bitches get slapped out of spite
(So give a nig’ some ackrite, right)

Fronting on the ack-rite, causing me to act up
Good Samaritans save that ho from getting slapped up
My homies crack up at the scene I made
Yo my actions ain’t serene when a nigga’s on fade
If it wasn’t for the one-time brigade
I woulda sprayed at the hooker tramp
As cops parade I’m afraid it’s time to break camp
Make tracks, where else can we go to take hoes
From fake macks? Ayo, chase them girls
In that black Maxima, the passenger, almost fractured her
Neckbone, looking back at us
Plus, they on the dick cause the Caddy’s plush
They blush, I bumrush the hush, with the largest crush
Try to swing an ep tonight so I don’t have to keep in touch
Keep it on hush without the tip-in
Macking interrupted by some niggas set-tripping
Clip in the strap, I showed these niggas how to act

Blunt in my left hand, drink in my right
Strap by my waistline, cause niggas don’t fight
Sucker free for life, so you better think twice
(Aight? And a give a nig’ some ackrite)
I’m the type of nigga playa-haters don’t like
Snatchin’ up your honey for some late night hype
And snobby-ass bitches get slapped out of spite
(Aight? So give a nig’ some ackrite, right)

Nicky Jam – Estrella (Concept Video)

Ser un cantante, ir a viajar
Dinero y fama, sin ti no es na
Mil mujeres me buscarán
Pero te amo y nadie ocupa tu lugar

Contigo es que me siento bien
No importa qué deba enfrentar
Si tú quieres una estrella la voy a buscar
La montaña más alta yo subiré
Pero todo contigo
Sin ti no lo haré

Contigo es que me siento bien
No importa qué deba enfrentar
Si tú quieres una estrella la voy a buscar
La montaña más alta yo subiré
Pero todo contigo
Sin ti no lo haré

Mansiones frente al mar
Avión privado y más
Pero no, pero no se siente igual
Yo cantaré en un concierto, cantaré
Pero en las noches el vacío no llenaré

Cuando yo te pienso, paso sonriendo
Yo te lo juro, tú eres mi felicidad
Te lo diré, por ti me arriesgaré
Doy todo lo que tengo
Esto es real

Contigo es que me siento bien
No importa qué deba enfrentar
Si tú quieres una estrella la voy a buscar
La montaña más alta yo subiré
Pero todo contigo
Sin ti no lo haré

Contigo es que me siento bien
No importa qué deba enfrentar
Si tú quieres una estrella la voy a buscar
La montaña más alta yo subiré
Pero todo contigo
Sin ti no lo haré

Cuando yo te pienso, paso sonriendo
Yo te lo juro, tú eres mi felicidad
Te lo diré, por ti me arriesgaré
Doy todo lo que tengo
Esto es real

Contigo es que me siento bien
No importa qué deba enfrentar
Si tú quieres una estrella la voy a buscar
La montaña más alta yo subiré
Pero todo contigo
Sin ti no lo haré

Contigo es que me siento bien
No importa qué deba enfrentar
Si tú quieres una estrella la voy a buscar
La montaña más alta yo subiré
Pero todo contigo
Sin ti no lo haré

Contigo es que me siento bien

Dave East – The Real Is Back (feat. Beanie Sigel)

[Intro]
Nah, no I’m not
Nah, nobody on this
You know how that go

[Verse 1: Dave East]
Now I’m living with a purpose, I ain’t perfect
Allah got me, ain’t spend too much time in churches
This from the heart, I ain’t spend too much time rehearsing
I was really thinking rob before I purchased
I was really thinking God these niggas thirsty
Paranoid around soft niggas, they make me nervous
Clutching a pistol around these clowns that shit’ll surface
If you knew my life you would understand I deserve it
Nobody gave me shit, told me I was worthless
Felt like I was cursed until the day that paper surfaced
It’s a reason why me and Beans can relate in person
I’m cut from that cloth, all that talking’ll get you murdered
I relaxed on that juice, them percocets be testing me
Plus your bitch keep texting me, I ain’t attracted sexually
These niggas selling blow up, got the fiends frustrated
Tryna get this dough up, package on me, ratchet on me
Tell me what your life like cause mines is real
Every thing signed and sealed, my mind on pills
Niggas’ll rat on they own mother, they see that time get real
Teddy bears and candle lightings give your moms the chills

[Hook: Dave East + Beanie Sigel]
As far as I can remember I’ve been a real one
They say that pressure bust pipes but I don’t feel none
Just like these whack ass rappers I can’t feel one
You said you wanted the real back well here it come

[Verse 2: Beanie Sigel]
Pressure’s on once again but I embrace it
I weathered through the storm before, I’m never breaking
I do this for the youth in the Matrix who won’t make it
I tell ’em every knock is a boost, remain patient
But every move he make is calculated through his hunger
It’s sad to say shorty might not make it through the summer
His mom turned tricks for a fix, pills strung her
He only met his pop for flicks and a jail jumper
His stomach empty but his clip full
He pop xannies by the fist full
Drink syrup, skip school
Pants hanging off his ass, ain’t been in the bath
I try to steer ’em right cause I hate to see him crash
Tell him just stay in his lane and remain humble
You bound to get hit in the game just don’t fumble
I seen G’s drop the ball and straight crumble
Just know if your aunt had a dick she’d be your uncle
What your life like nigga mines is real
No if, mights, maybes, probably, wills
I blow your fucking head off with that revolver steel
I shot a nigga on tour, got that revolver still
Know when you fucking with the Bully you involved with real
I put your body somewhere, they won’t solve your kill nigga
You need to stop if you think Mac won’t pop it
Have your mom in all black out casket shopping

[Verse 3: Dave East + Beanie Sigel]
It’s the Broadstreet Bully and Dave East, yeah we playing for keeps
These niggas dressing like freaks and they calling it fleek
These niggas be signing sheets plus they calling police
Know every nigga in the ghetto ain’t involved in the streets
We ain’t really into the games we gon’ rest you to peace
Pull something big out, give you a long kiss on the cheek
Who ready to die? Sky’s the limit who want beef?
I was a bad boy before I repped the ROC
This ain’t nothing new shit this just what the fuck we do
We like no limit soldiers and nigga I’m that true
The reason, the solution nigga I’m that too
Whoever stuck to the realness, then I’m that glue
It’s a war going on outside you ain’t safe from
You can play Super man, you get your cape hung
We don’t start no shit and we don’t take none
We just 100% until our day come

[Hook: Dave East + Beanie Sigel]
As far as I can remember I’ve been a real one
They say that pressure bust pipes but I don’t feel none
Just like these whack ass rappers I can’t feel one
You said you wanted the real back well here it come
As far as I can remember I’ve been a real one
They say that pressure bust pipes but I don’t feel none
Just like these whack ass rappers I can’t feel one
You said you wanted the real back well here it come

[Outro: Dave East + Beanie Sigel]
You said you wanted the real back well here it come
You said you wanted the real back well here it come
You said you wanted the real back well here it come
You said you wanted the real back well here it come
You said you wanted the real back well here it come
You said you wanted the real back well here it come
You said you wanted the real back well here it come

Cheat Codes – No Promises (feat. Demi Lovato)

[Verse 1: Demi Lovato]
Cut me up like a knife
And I feel it, deep in my bones
Kicking it high
But I love even harder
You wanna know?

[Pre-Chorus: Demi Lovato]
I just wanna dive in the water, with you
Baby, we can’t see the bottom
It’s so easy to fall for each other
I’m just hoping we catch one another

[Chorus: Trevor Dahl]
Oh na na, just be careful, na na
Love ain’t simple, na na
Promise me no promises
Oh na na, just be careful, na na
Love ain’t simple, na na
Promise me no promises

[Verse 2: Demi Lovato]
Baby I think about you
And I feel it, deep in my heart
Maybe we just ain’t meant to be something
Maybe we are?

[Pre-Chorus: Demi Lovato]
I just wanna dive in the water, with you
Baby we can’t see the bottom
It’s so easy to fall for each other
I’m just hoping we catch one another

[Chorus: Trevor Dahl & Demi Lovato]
Oh na na, just be careful, na na
Love ain’t simple, na na
Promise me no promises
Oh na na, just be careful, na na
Love ain’t simple, na na
Promise me no promises, oh

[Bridge: Trevor Dahl & Demi Lovato]
I just wanna dive in the water
Oh baby, we can’t see the bottom
I just want to dive in with you
I just want to lie here with you, oh

[Chorus: Trevor Dahl & Demi Lovato]
Oh na na, just be careful, na na
Love ain’t simple, na na
Promise me no promises (promise me)
Oh na na, just be careful, na na
Love ain’t simple, na na
Promise me no promises, no

[Outro: Trevor Dahl & Demi Lovato]
Promise me no promises
Don’t you promise me nothing
Promise me, me, me, me
Just be careful
Promise me no promises

Bleachers – Don’t Take The Money

[Verse 1: Jack Antonoff]
Somebody broke me once
Love was a currency
A shimmering balance act
I think that I laughed at that
And I saw your face and hands
Coloured in sun and then
I think I understand
Will I understand?

[Pre-Chorus: Jack Antonoff]
Will we fight, stay up late?
In my dreams I’m to blame
Different sides of the bed
Roll your eyes, shave my head
Now we’re stuck in the storm
We were born to ignore
And all I got is a chance to just sit
(I’m in love and you’ve got me, runaway)

[Chorus: Jack Antonoff]
You steal the air out of my lungs, you make me feel it
I pray for everything we lost, buy back the secrets
Your hand forever’s all I want
Don’t take the money
Don’t take the money

[Verse 2: Jack Antonoff]
I slept on my own those nights
Was still in my parent’s house
And I cut off my t-shirt sleeves
And claim a new continent
‘Til I saw your face and hands
Covered in sun and then
I think I understand
Will I understand?

[Pre-Chorus: Jack Antonoff]
Will we fight, stay up late?
In my dreams I’m to blame
Different sides of the bed
Roll your eyes, shake my head
Now we’re stuck in the storm
We were born to ignore
And all I got is a chance to just sit
(I’m in love and you’ve got me, runaway)

[Chorus: Jack Antonoff]
You steal the air out of my lungs, you make me feel it
I pray for everything we lost, buy back the secrets
Your hand forever’s all I want
Don’t take the money
Don’t take the money
(I’m in love and you’ve got me, runaway)
You steal the air out of my lungs, you make me feel it
I pray for everything we lost, buy back the secrets
Your hand forever’s all I want
Don’t take the money
Don’t take the money
(I’m in love and you’ve got me, runaway)

[Bridge: Jack Antonoff]
When you’re looking at your shadow
Standing on the edge of yourself
Praying on the darkness
Just don’t take the money
Dreaming of an easy
Waking up without weight now
And you’re looking at the heartless
Just don’t take the money

[Chorus: Jack Antonoff & Lorde]
You steal the air out of my lungs, you make me feel it
I pray for everything we lost, buy back the secrets
Your hand forever’s all I want
Don’t take the money
Well, don’t take the money
(I’m in love and you’ve got me, runaway)
You steal the air out of my lungs, you make me feel it
I pray for everything we lost, buy back the secrets
Your hand forever’s all I want
Don’t take the money
Don’t take the money

[Outro: Jack Antonoff]
Just don’t take the money
Just don’t take the money
Just don’t take the money
Just don’t take the money

Asher Roth – Wu Financial (feat. The Cool Kids)

[Intro: Asher Roth]
Yeah, yeah, yeah

[Verse 1: Asher Roth]
Ayo styles upon styles upon style upon styles
Ain’t seen a blond this hot since Barb Wire
Since Limewire been downloading illegally
Ain’t bought a CD since like 2003
Nah everything’s speeding
Gravity in 3D
Many think we cheated and beat it with Game Genie
PlayStation triple play ’98
New York Yanks, San Diego Padres
Nowadays everybody on a X-Box
Generation X triple H trying to X pop
Let’s smoke pot while we guessing who’s the next Pac
Best top, left breast, save it for the desktop
Rest stop while the truckers getting liquorish
Hard to give a fuck when you barely even give a shit
Look at me I’m egotist
Sipping on that regal piss
Doing shit illegal, get a giggle, hearing people bitch

[Verse 2]
[?] put a slight bend in my bill
Black grand national turn and twisting my wheel
[?] full clip when I steer
The Helly Hansen bubble fitted case it’s chilly in here
Rest in peace Uncle Phil, the big willy, the wheel of fortune
The real deal bruh’s really doing numbers
Posion [?] with the Air Max [?] summer
The ’97 Hummer
[?]
[?] the deck though
On the set though

[Verse 3: Asher Roth]
You get no respect hoe
Presto, bless the Pats without Bledsoe
This was ’94 bet that I’d be signed to Death Row
Flying in the [?] jet though
Best rolled, sip red cup with [?]

[Verse 4]
Man this how it’s about to go down
My yayo in a snow mound
I swan dived into it, the time bomb [?]
[?] make you wanna keep [?]
To rip into your ass if you think about some action
Splash ’em
Baby Busch Garden at the crib
Keep the lemur in the living room
I know where you live nigga
You ain’t even got no WiFi
[?] Willy Wonka
Pocket down Diddy in the middle of his concert
While lifting up some titties so big they make my arms hurt
Finally Fantasy update on the X-Box 3
Take a hour and a half, take a shower and a bath
And a walk around the park and the shits still ain’t stop yet
Anniversary boxset edition I got
Cost 11 hundred dollars and I’m missing some shit

CupcakKe – LGBT lyrics

[Chorus]
Fuck out my way when you see me
I’m rollin’ with the LGBT
Fuck out my way when you see me
I’m rollin’ with the LGBT
I’m rollin’ with the LGBT
I’m rollin’ with the LGBT
Lookin’ like we belong on TV
I’m rollin’ with the LGBT

[Verse 1]
Too cool for this shit, look at my body language
Shit on everything, I need some potty training
Money missing, had to ask him, “Where the rest, dummy?”
Before I call my bitches up, they say “yes, hunty”
Judge one of the studs, they gone bring some thugs
Judge one of my drags, catch a heel up yo’ ass
Don’t judge a lesbian, ’cause she don’t want you back man
Judge one of the gays, they drag you from Z to A
And shout out to the bi’s, you ain’t gotta pick a side
And if you in the closet, shorty, you ain’t gotta hide (come on out)
Gotta make these bitches sick when they see you
And if a bitch want beef, give her beef stew
Stripper right in front of me, I hope she washed her ass
She looking at my fine gays, but they don’t wanna smash
Know they ’bout to act a fool, time is past due
Then the gays hop on stage, like I can shake my ass too

[Chorus]
Fuck out my way when you see me
I’m rollin’ with the LGBT
Fuck out my way when you see me
I’m rollin’ with the LGBT
I’m rollin’ with the LGBT
I’m rollin’ with the LGBT
Lookin’ like we belong on TV
I’m rollin’ with the LGBT

[Verse 2]
Fashion wise they don’t play
When they step out, they gone slay
I’m talkin’ tight jeans, good hygienes
Mothafuckas stay fleek everyday (We fleek!)
Fuck with them, you better run off
No skydivers ,gone jump off
No pun intended , hoes offended
Cause they see we flyer than flight attendants
Do a hair flip then I dip (then I dip)
In the strip club throwing tips
In V.I.P., I’m ’bout to buy more
Cause life too short like hype sports
Tissue in my bra, bitch, gone head (Gone head)
Bad bitch, and I got long legs (Long legs)
Ass super plump, full of cornbread
I shut a bitch up like a phone dead

[Chorus]
Fuck out my way when you see me
I’m rollin’ with the LGBT
Fuck out my way when you see me
I’m rollin’ with the LGBT
I’m rollin’ with the LGBT
I’m rollin’ with the LGBT
Lookin’ like we belong on TV
I’m rollin’ with the LGBT

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Alive lyrics

[HYDE]
What is this feeling of power and drive
I’ve never known? I feel alive!
Where does this feeling of power derive
Making me know why I’m alive?

Like the night, it’s a secret
Sinister, dark, and unknown
I do not know what I seek
Yet, I’ll seek it alone!

I have a thirst that I cannot deprive
Never have I felt so alive!
There is no battle I couldn’t survive
Feeling like this, feeling alive!

Like the moon, an enigma
Lost and alone in the night
Damned by some heavenly stigma
But blazing with light!

It’s the feeling of being alive!
Filled with evil, but truly alive!
It’s the truth that cannot be denied!
It’s the feeling of being Edward Hyde!

(spoken)
Wait!
What’s this?
Sweet miss!
I thought I had lost you!

It’s fate!
What bliss!
Sweet miss!
Your folly will cost you dear

My dear
You’ll see
You’ll never escape me!

I’m here
I fear
And you will pay dear
My dear…

(creepy stalking noises)

(sung)
Animals trapped behind bars in the zoo
Need to run rampant and free!
Predators live on the prey they pursue
This time, the predator’s me!

Lust, like a raging desire
Fills my whole soul with its curse
Burning with primitive fire
Berserk and perverse!

Tonight
I’ll plunder heaven blind
Steal from all the gods!

Tonight
I’ll take from all mankind
Conquer all the odds!

And I feel I’ll live on forever
With Satan himself by my side!
And I’ll show the world
That tonight, and forever
The name to remember’s
The name Edward Hyde!

What a feeling to be so alive!
I have never seen me so alive!
Such a feeling of evil inside
That’s the feeling of being
Edward Hyde!

What a feeling to be so alive!
I have never seen me so alive!
Such a feeling of evil inside
That’s the feeling of being Edward Hyde!

With this feeling of being alive
There’s a new world I see come alive
It’s a truth that cannot be denied
There’s no feeling like being Edward Hyde!

(growls)

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – A New Life lyrics

A new life,
What I wouldn’t give
To have a new life
One thing I have learned
As I go through life
Nothing is for free
Along the way!
A new start
That’s the thing I need
To give me new heart
Half a chance in life
To find a new part
Just a simple role
That I can play

A new hope
Something to convince me
To renew hope!
A new day
Bright enough to help me
Find my way!

A new chance
One that maybe has
A touch of romance
Where can it be,
The chance for me?

A new dream
I have one I know
That very few dream
I would like to see
That overdue dream
Even though
It never may come true! A new love Though I know there’s no
Such thing as true love
Even so,
Although I never knew love
Still I feel that one dream is my due!
A new world
This one thing I want
To ask of you world
Once before it’s time
To say Adieu, world
One sweet chance to
Prove the cynics wrong!

A new life
More and more I’m sure
As I go through life
Just to play the game
And to pursue life
Just to share it’s pleasures
And belong
That’s what I’ve been here for
All along!
Each days a brand new life!

NEWSBOYS
Second London murder! Murder! General Glossop killed on the steps o’ St. Paul’s Cathedral!

VARIOUS STREET PEOPLE
Look at this, another murder,
Just like the other murder!
That’s poor old General Glossop – dead!
Last week the bishop copped it!
The bloke what done it hopped it!
That feller must be off his ‘ead!

That’s two in the last four days-
This killer has fancy ways!
To kill outside St. Paul’s
Requires a lotta balls!

He hates the upper class!
He must be on ‘is ass!
Who could he be?
Don’t look at me!

VARIOUS GOSSIP LADIES
What a shame! – Dear General Glossop!
Hear there’s a lot of gossip!
Although it didn’t come from me!

Of course not! No! – Of course not!
What about that poor old Bishop?
That dreadful dirt they dish up!
Do you think it’s true?
It well could be!
Imagine!
Fancy!
Really!

I say that it goes to show
Some people we think we know
Aren’t all they might appear!
How right you are my dear!
It’s such a shocking thing!
But awfully interesting!
Who could it be?
Well, now – Let’s see!

STREET PEOPLE
Murder, Murder –
Doin’ folks in
Murder, Murder
Is the worst sin!
Murder, Murder

VARIOUS GOSSIP LADIES
London has a killer on the loose!
Or a gang!
Either way – let ’em hang!

STREET PEOPLE
Gotta get ‘is head inside a noose!

Maybe his nerve will fail him!
They’ve gotta try to nail him!
They’ve gotta trail an’ jail him now!

There’s gonna be one flamin’ row!

[LUCY]
S’ not every day me friends and I
‘as gents like you just droppin’ by
Before you go, you’ll know just why you came here!

[JEKYLL]
Of that, my dear, I’ve little doubt
One only has to look about
It’s not too hard to figure out the game here!

And yet I sense: there’s more to you

[LUCY]
You flatter, sir, you really do!
With half a chance …

[JEKYLL]
…what would you do?

[LUCY]
Don’t ask me!

Here’s to the night! Here’s to romance!
To those unafraid of taking a chance!

[JEKYLL]
I think I’ve taken enough for one day!
And I have learned to my cost
It’s not the fun that it might be once you have… lost

[LUCY]
Oh, what a shame! If you only knew
The games we could play, the things we could do

Yet I can see you’re not up to the chase!
But, if you’re ever in need:
I am the girl, and this is the place. Come to me

JEKYLL
It’s getting late – I have to go
If any time – you never know – you need a friend…

[LUCY]
Dr. Henry Jekyll, 46 Harley Street…
If any time… you never know…
You need a friend… (she hums)

HYDE
After tonight, my little love,
You will never forget me.
I am destined to be your guardian Angel
Your guide to salvation
In this world of madness.

LUCY
So what’s yer name then, sweet’eart ?

HYDE
Hyde… Edward Hyde.
A toast to the night!
A toast to romance!
To those unafraid
Of taking a chance!

LUCY
I must admit that I like yer approach!
It’s one that I’ve not seen before!

HYDE
Why should you settle for less, dear,
When there’s more!

I am the man
Fate has decreed
Destined to be
All that you need!
I can give you everything you desire
You can give me all I need!
LUCY
Sounds like a nice bit of business
Yes, indeed!

HYDE
I am the man
Mark my words well
With whom you’ll share
Heaven or hell!

And I can find hell on my own!

After tonight, you will never be alone!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Lisa Carew lyrics

[STRIDE]
Lisa Carew, can this be you?
What kind of man is this you’ve taken?
Can you not see the kind of life
That this would be? You are mistaken!
Time to awaken before it’s too late
Before you forever determine you fate!

[LISA]
But Simon, you knew: I had to be free
What I choose to do is decided by me!

Ever since my mother died
My father, bless his darling heart
Has treated me as though I’m still a young child
Maybe his idea was just to wait until I grew up
And then look at me and hope that I’d be her

It’s easy to accept this from a father
He’d rather things remained the way they were
But when it comes to marriage, I must pick whom I prefer!
I am not the weak young thing you’re seeking, Simon
Someone seventeen, obedient and sweet
I am not the protégé to waste your time on, I’m complete!

In Henry’s eyes I see what I am meant to be

[STRIDE]
Lisa, listen to me!

[LISA]
Simon, enough!
There’s nothing more!
Don’t be a bore!
You have your answer!

That’s how things are!
Will always be!
You had your chance, Sir, with me!

[STRIDE]
Someday you’ll regret what you just said to me!
Lisa…

We’ll see, Sir!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Letting Go lyrics

SIR DANVERS
Letting go
When the day comes that I
Must say goodbye to you
It’s the last thing in life
I’ll ever want to do
I know it has to be
But it’s so hard for me
Letting go
Facing up to the truth
That it is time to part
Giving way to the day
That may well break my heart
It’s not a thing I choose
To win I have to lose

LISA
Letting go
Moving on in my life
Into the time to come
Day by day
Page by page
Sure of what I’ve become
Papa, you always knew
That’s what I had to do

BOTH
For I know the only way to grow
Is just by letting go

LISA
Letting go
When the times comes I know
I shall return some day
But ’till then this is when
I have to find my way
It’s a fact of life
SIR DANVERS
Though it isn’t fair

BOTH
There will always be
All the love we share

LISA
Still the hardest thing

BOTH
Is letting go
The hardest thing
Is letting go.

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – It’s A Dangerous Game lyrics

[Verse 1]
LUCY
I feel your fingers-
Brushing my shoulder-
Your tempting touch,
As it tingles my spine-
Watching your eyes
As they invade my soul-
Forbidden pleasures
I’m afraid to make mine.

[Chorus]
At the touch of your hand-
At the sound of your voice-
At the moment your eyes meet mine-
I am out of my mind-
I am out of control-
Full of feelings I can’t define!

[Verse 2]
HYDE
It’s a sin with no name-
Like a tiger to tame
And my senses proclaim
It’s a dangerous game!

[Verse 3]
A darker dream
That has no ending
Something unreal
That you want to be true.

[Verse 4]
LUCY
A strange romance
Out of a mystery tale

[Verse 5]
HYDE
The frightened princess
Doesn’t know what to do!

[Chorus]
Does she just run away?
Does she risk it and stay?
Either way, there’s no way to win!

LUCY
All I know is, I’m lost
And I’m counting the cost
My emotions are in a spin!
And though no one’s to blame…

HYDE
It’s a crime and a shame!

LUCY
But it’s true, all the same

HYDE
It’s a dangerous game!

[Verse 6]
BOTH
No one speaks-
Not one word-
All the words are in our eyes
Silence speaks
Loud and clear-
All the words we want to hear!
At the touch of your hand-
At the sound of your voice-
At the moment your eyes meet mine-

[Chorus]
I am losing my mind-
I am losing control-
Full of feelings I can’t define!

HYDE
It’s a sin with no name
Like a tiger to tame

LUCY
And though no one’s to blame

HYDE
It’s a crime and a shame

[Outro]
BOTH
And the angels proclaim
It’s a dangerous game!
It’s a dangerous game!
Such a dangerous game…

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – I Need To Know Lyrics lyrics

[JEKYLL]
I need to know
The nature of the demons that possess Man’s soul
I need to know
Why man’s content to let them make him less than whole

Why does he revel in murder and madness?
What is it makes him be less than he should?
Why is he doomed not to reach his potential?
His soul is black when he turns his back upon good

I need to find
A way to get inside the tortured mind of man
I need to try
To separate the good and evil, if I can

One thing is certain—the evil is stronger
Good fights hopeless and desperate fight
I must find ways of adjusting the balance
To bring him back from the empty black edge of night!

I need to go
Where no man has ventured before
To search for the key to the door
That will end all this tragic and senseless decay!
But how to go?
I need to know!

I need to learn
The secrets of the mind that we can not discern
I need to learn
The things that make men pass the point of no return

Why does a wise man take leave of his senses?
Where is that fine line where sanity melts?
When does intelligence give way to madness?
A moment comes when a man becomes something else

I need to know
Why man plays this strange double game
His hand always close to the flame
It’s a deal with the Devil he cannot disclaim
But what’s his aim?
I need to know!

Dear God, guide me
Show me how to succeed
With your wisdom inside me
Henry Jekyll will follow where ever you lead!

I need to see
The truth other men cannot see
To be things that others can’t be
Give me the courage to go where no angel will go
And I will go!
I need to know!

When they can block each step I take?

Don’t destroy the work you’ve done
Henry, there’s too much at stake!

But what if they are right
Have I let my dreams misguide me?
I’m so weary of this fight
There’s so little left inside me

[UTTERSON]
And what if you are right
And you didn’t see it through?
You’ve got to see it through

This is not the man I knew!
There’s something deeply troubling you!
How long do you plan
To hide away here?
This increasing isolation
Only adds to your frustration
And it could endanger your career!
JEKYLL

More than ever now I need a friend!
Can’t you see and don’t you know I’ve been through hell?
Don’t condemn what you don’t comprehend!

UTTERSON
Henry, I’m not questioning your motives here!
But is what you’re seeking worth the price?
You’ve turned your back on everything you once held dear
You’re choosing to ignore your friend’s advice!

You have your work
And nothing more!
You are possessed
What is your demon?
You’ve never been
This way before
You’ve lost the fire
You built your dream on!

There’s something strange
There’s something wrong
I see a change
It’s like when love dies.
I who have known
You for so long
I see the pain in your eyes

There was a time
You lived your life
And no one lived
The way that you did!
You had a plan
You found a wife
You saw your world
As very few did!

You had it all!
The overall!
You seemed to know
Just what to live for!
But now it seems
You don’t at all!
You have your work
Nothing more!

Pursuing this insanity…

It is his work!

SIR DANVERS
It’s more than work!
He is obsessed!
The man is driven!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Facade lyrics

[ENSEMBLE]
If you live around here
You need cash in the bank
‘Cause the houses ’round here
Are all flashy and swank
An’ the front bit, ha
‘at’s what’s called a facade!

All the people ’round here
Are as posh as can be
You won’t seem hobnobbin’
With rubbish like me
It’s the snob bit
Also called a facade

Every day
People, in their own sweet way
Like to add a coat of paint
And be what they ain’t!

That’s how our little –
Game is played
Livin’ out their masquerade
Getting rich and getting laid
Who’d want to trade?

But there’s one thing I know
And I know it for sure:
This disease that we’ve got
Has got no ready cure!
And I’m certain
Life is terribly hard
When your life’s a facade!

Every night here one house
Or another is a funhouse
‘Cause there’s someone giving a party
As you see, sir!

This one here tonight
Is rather special, am I right?
It’s the betrothal of Sir Danver’s
Daughter, Lisa

Sir Danvers Carew is a good man
They call him the creme de la creme
Whatever that means
He’s a bloody sight better than them!

Nearly everyone you meet
When walking down a London street
Pretends to be a pillar of society

A model of propriety
Sobriety, and piety
Who’s never even heard of notoriety

The ladies an’ gents ‘ere before you
Which none of ’em ever admits
May have saintly looks
But they’re sinners an’ crooks!

Hypocrites!

If you live around here
You need lots of panache
If you live in down, dear
Then you must cut a dash
T’isn’t hard, dear
To create a facade

You must seem to be rich
And to have money to burn
Even though it’s a bitch
Spending more than you earn
That’s the game here
And the name is facade

One or two
Might look kinda well-to-do
But I bet you precious few
Have payed for their boots

I’m inclined to think –
Half mankind thinks the other
Half is blind
Wouldn’t be surprised to find
They’re all in cahoots

At the end of the day
They don’t mean what they say
They don’t say what they mean
They don’t ever come clean
And the answer
Is it’s all a facade

Call a walk promenade
Call a street boulevard
Grease your hair with pomade
You’ll be held in regard

And I betcha
If you stay on your guard (stay on your guard)
They’ll all say you’re a card
People love the facade (stay on your guard)
What’s behind the facade?

[JEKYLL]
Look behind the facade

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Confrontation lyrics

JEKYLL
It’s over now, I know inside
No one will ever know
The sorry tale of Edward Hyde
And those who died
No one must ever know
They’d only see the tragedy
They’d not see my intent
The shadow of Hyde’s evil
Will forever kill
The good that I had meant

Am I a good man?
Am I a mad man?
It’s such a fine line
Between a good man and a…

HYDE
Do you really think
That I would ever let you go?
Do you think I’d ever set you free?
If you do, I’m sad to say,
It simply isn’t so.
You will never get away from me!

JEKYLL
All that you are
Is a face in the mirror!
I close my eyes, and you’ll disappear!

HYDE
I’m what you face
When you face in the mirror!
Long as you live, I will still be here!

JEKYLL
All that you are
Is the end of a nightmare!
All that you are is a dying scream!
After tonight,
I shall end this demon dream!

HYDE
This is not a dream, my friend-
And it will never end!
This one is the nightmare that goes on!
Hyde is here to stay,
No matter what you may pretend-
And I’ll flourish, long after you’re gone!

JEKYLL
Soon you will die,
And my memory will hide you!
You cannot choose but to loose control

HYDE
You can’t control me!
I live deep inside you!
Each day you’ll feel me devour your soul!

JEKYLL
I don’t need you to survive,
Like you need me!
I’ll become whole
As you dance with death!
And I’ll rejoice
As you breathe your final breath!

HYDE
For I’ll live inside you forever!

JEKYLL
No!

HYDE
With Satan himself by my side!

JEKYLL
No!

HYDE
And I know that, now and forever,
They’ll never be able to separate
Jekyll from Hyde!

JEKYLL
Can’t you see
It’s over now?
It’s time to die!

HYDE
No, not I!
Only you!

JEKYLL
If I die,
You die too!

HYDE
You’ll die in me,
I’ll be you!

JEKYLL
Dam you, Hyde!
Set me free!

HYDE
Can’t you see,
You are me?

JEKYLL
No!
Deep inside -!

HYDE
I am you!
You are Hyde!

JEKYLL
No – never!

HYDE
Yes, forever!

JEKYLL
God d*** you, Hyde!
Take all your evil deeds,
And rot in hell!

HYDE
I’ll see you there, Jekyll!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Bring On The Men lyrics

[LUCY (with prostitutes in background)]
There was a time, I don’t know when
I didn’t have much time for men
But this is now and that was then, I’m learning

A girl alone, all on her own
Must try to have a heart of stone
So I try not to make it known, my yearning

I try to show I have no need
I really do – I don’t succeed

So let’s bring on the men
And let the fun begin
A little touch of sin
Why wait another minute

Step this way, it’s time for us to play
They say we may not pass this way again
So let’s waste no more time
Bring on the men!

I always knew, I always said
That silk and lace in black and red
Will drive a man right off his head, it’s easy

So many men, so little time
I want them all, is that a crime?

[MEN]
No!

[LUCY]
I don’t know why they say that I’m too easy

They make me laugh, they make me cry
They make me sick, so God knows why

We say bring on the men
And let the fun begin
A little touch of sin
Why wait another minute

Step this way, it’s time for us to play
They say we may not pass this way again
So let’s waste no more time
Bring on the men!

They break your heart
They steal your soul
Take you apart
And yet they somehow make you whole

So what’s the game?
I suppose a rose by any other name
The perfume and the prick’s the same

(interlude with prostitutes teasing johns)

[LUCY]
I like to have a man for breakfast each day
I’m very social and I like it that way
By late mid-morning I need something to munch
So I ask over two men for lunch

And men are mad about my afternoon teas
They’re quite informal, I just do it to please
Those triple sandwiches are my favorite ones
I’m also very partial to buns

My healthy appetite gets strongest at night
My at-home dinners are my men-friends’ delight
When I invite the fellas over to dine
They all come early, in bed by nine

[LUCY]
So let’s bring on the men
And let the fun begin
A little touch of sin
Why wait another minute

Step this way, it’s time for us to play
They say we may not pass this way again
So let’s waste no more time
Bring on the men!

[PROSTITUTE ENSEMBLE]
Big men, small men
Short men, tall men
I guess that means almost all men
I’m a player, long as they are men men men!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Board Of Governors lyrics

[RECORDING SECRETARY (spoken)]
The Board of Governors of St. Jude’s Hospital is now in session
Sir Danvers Carew, KBE, Chairman
His Grace, The Bishop of Basingstoke
General Lord Glossop
The Right Honorable Sir Archibald Proops, Q.C
Lady Beaconsfield
Lord Savage
The Order of business will be conducted by the Secretary to the Board of Governors, Mr. Simon Stride

[STRIDE (spoken)
Proposition No. 929: Presented by Dr. Henry Jekyll

[GENERAL GLOSSOP] (overlapping)
Jekyll, you’re all talk an’ no result!…

[BISHOP OF BASINGSTOKE] (overlapping)
Forever asking us to endorse empty promises!

[SIR ARCHIBALD PROOPS] (overlapping)
What’s all the mystery? Much ado about nothing, if you ask me…

[LADY BEACONSFIELD] (overlapping)
You’re the laughingstock of your profession and polite society! The mad scientist!

[STRIDE]
Order! Order!

[JEKYLL]
Distinguished Governors
I have glimpsed the future
Seen miracles that stun the mind
And marvels only science can find
To shape tomorrow for mankind
And I can show them to you
If you wish me to

Friends, you’re aware there are two sides to each of us
Good and evil, compassion and hate
If we could extract all the evil from each of us
Think of the world that we could create
A world without anger or violence or strife
Where man wouldn’t kill anymore
A world of compassion, where passion for life
Would banish the madness of war

I’m close to finding the key to duality
Chemical Formulae which could – and would
Alter the patterns of man’s personality
Guiding him either to evil or good!
Weigh the potential, the great possibilities
Colleagues – dear friends, understand
We have a chance to make history here in our hand

Each of us is the embodiment of two distinct and opposing forces – Good and Evil – each fighting for supremacy inside us. If we could separate these two forces, we could control and ultimately eliminate all evil from mankind. My experiments with animals have led me to believe that the day is not far off when this separation will be possible. To achieve it, I must be allowed to try my formula on a living human being!

[BISHOP OF BASINGSTOKE]
And what if you’re right, Jekyll? And you do manage to separate Good from Evil… what happens to the evil?

[JEKYLL]
There are doomed, broken souls in a thousand asylums
I defy you to say you don’t care if you can
In the name of compassion and medical science
I can save many lives, if you give me one man

[BISHOP OF BASINGSTOKE]
I tell you now, the Church will never sanction it!

[VARIOUS ]
Sacrilege! Lunacy! Blasphemy! Heresy!

[SIR ARCHIBALD PROOPS]
You seem to be treading on dangerous ground
In legal terms, I’d say – extremely unsound!

[BISHOP OF BASINGSTOKE]
The whole thing’s un-christian, barbaric and odd!
You’re playing with fire when you start to play God!

[STRIDE]
The Bishop speaks for all of us
When he says you’re playing God!
There’s such a thing as ethics
Over which you ride rough-shod!
You’re a Doctor, not a saviour
Doctor Jekyll, for a start!
But I judge from your behaviour
You can’t tell the two apart!

[JEKYLL]
Dear Mr. Stride, I am simply a scientist
I have a code to which I remain true
I don’t presume to the stature of moralist
I leave pretension like that, Sir, to you!

[SIR DANVERS]
Henry, I’ve always encouraged your enterprise
And I’ve been hopeful that you would succeed!
But in the face of these powerful arguments
I see no choice but for you to concede!

[JEKYLL]
I know my fate is yours to choose
But if they win, the world would lose
I am on the brink of great success!
I beg you, Governors, you must say “Yes!”

[LADY BEACONSFIELD]
Doctor Jekyll, enough of this ranting, Sir!
This is a hospital, here to save lives!

[GOVERNORS]
Do you think we would let you play havoc
With all the high principles for which it strives?

Do you expect us to compromise all that we stand for
Indulging your dangerous games?
How many rules should we break for your dubious games?

[JEKYLL]
Can’t you see? I am not playing games!

Just give me the opportunity!

[GENERAL GLOSSOP]
This whole thing’s too bizarre!

[SIR DANVERS]
Open up your eyes and see!

[BISHOP OF BASINGSTOKE]
This man has gone too far!

[JEKYLL]
Unless you listen to me…

[STRIDE]
Doctor, please watch your tone!
Dammit, man, can’t you see?
You’re on your own!

[JEKYLL] (overlapping)
Fools!
You fools!
God damn your rules
Look at yourselves
Civilized men!
Why can’t you see?

[SIR DANVERS](overlapping)
Henry!

[PROOPS] (overlapping)
Jekyll!

[BISHOP OF BASINGSTOKE] (overlapping)
Blasphemy!

[GENERAL GLOSSOP] (overlapping)
Mutiny!

[LORD SAVAGE] (overlapping)
Damn me!

[LADY BEACONSFIELD] (overlapping)
Really!

[SIR DANVERS] (overlapping)
Henry!

[GOVERNERS]
(unintelligible yelling)

[STRIDE]
Order! Order!

[JEKYLL (spoken)]
If I ever needed further justification for my experiments, gentlemen, you have just provided it!

[JEKYLL (sung)
Just look at what has happened here!
Mix anger with a touch of fear
The danger’s all too crystal-clear
Just look at you!

Our darker side keeps breaking through
Observe it now – in me and you!
The evil that all men can do
Must be controlled!
I beg of you
I’ll show you all it can be done!

Here is a chance to take charge of our fate
Deep down you must know that tomorrow’s too late
One rule of life we cannot rearrange
The only thing constant is change
The only thing constant… is change

[STRIDE]
Distinguished colleagues, your verdict, please
All those is favour, say “Aye”
All those opposed, “Nay”

[GOVERNORS]
Nay! Nay! Nay! Nay!
Positively, absolutely nay!

[STRIDE]
Sir Danvers?

[SIR DANVERS]
Abstain

[STRIDE (spoken)]
By five votes to none – with one abstention – Proposition 929 is rejected. Thank you for your time, Dr. Jekyll

[SIR DANVERS (spoken)]
I am truly sorry, Henry

[JEKYLL]
All these precious years I’ve dedicated to this dream
Now with a word they claim the power to deny me
Who are they to judge what I am doing?
They know nothing of the endless possibilities I see

It’s ludicrous I’m bound by their decision
Seems vision is a word they’ve never heard!
If it mattered less, I’d treat it with derision It’s absurd!

And yet the fact remains
Those bastards hold the reins!

[STRIDE]
I’m so sorry, Doctor Jekyll
What a really rotten shame!
I so hope that what has happened
Won’t destroy your precious name!

Henry Jekyll, I despise you!
You have stolen the girl who should be my wife!
But there’ll come a day, not so far away
When you’ll not only pay
You will pay all your life!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Someone Like You lyrics

LUCY
I peer through windows, watch life go by …
Dream of tomorrow and wonder why …
The past is holding me, keeping life at bay.
I wander, lost in yesterday,
Wanting to fly,
But scared to try …
But if someone like you
Found someone like me,
Then suddenly, nothing would ever be the same.
My heart would take wing,
And I’d feel so alive,
If someone like you found me.

So many secrets I’d long to share!
All I have needed is someone there
To help me see a world
I’ve never seen before.
A love to open any door
To set me free,
So I can soar!

If someone like you
Found someone like me,
Then suddenly, nothing would ever be the same.
There’d be a new way to live,
A new life to love,
If someone like you found me …
Oh, if someone like you
Found someone like me,
Then suddenly, nothing would ever be the same.
My heart would take wing
And I’d feel so alive!

If someone like you loved me …
Loved me …
… loved me!

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – Reflections lyrics

JEKYLL
My two natures have memory in common.
I am aware that I am slowly losing hold
Of my original and better self…
And becoming absorbed into my second
And worse self.
Hyde, alone in the ranks of mankind, is pure evil.
As Jekyll, I can share in the pleasures and wickedness of Hyde.
I have more than a father’s interest in him,
And he has more than a son’s indifference towards me!
As Hyde, I care only for myself
And nothing for Jekyll!
As Jekyll, I know how Hyde
Fears my power to cut him off – by suicide!
And yet I find it in my heart to pity him
So wonderful is his love of life!
So wonderful is his love of life!
