Verona



The Prince:
If you think you've seen it all
Then you had better think again
Don't care how many books you've read
Or how many lands you've seen

You're still not prepared for this
Don't be misled by pretty girls
Or flowered gardens everywhere
You'll soon see what I mean

The family called Capulet
Will not forgive and can't forget
And the family called Montague
Is as unforgiving too

This is Verona, you're in Verona
Where hatred is a way of life
And you can cut it with a knife
The hate keeps flowing in their veins
It is more powerful than chains
And they are scared to turn their backs
It isn't prudent to relax
Not in Verona, lovely Verona
The population is unique
Nobody turns the other cheek
When will they get it in their heads?
Their dreams will never leave their beds
Until there is some compromise
And peace illuminates the skies
In Verona

On the surface all is well
Heaven on earth it would appear
A second look and you'll see hell
It's no picnic to live here

Maybe the wound's too deep and raw
Archaic wounds take long to heal
And Montagueís and Capuletís
Seem to thrive on their ordeal

What tragic price must we pay
For bad blood to be washed away?
It's all too sad to contemplate
And it's all because of hate

In my Verona, perfect Verona
Two families with an ancient grudge
That all their praying cannot budge
An endless battle of two foes
And neither one can find repose
As families swim against the tide
Come meet some people who reside
In Verona, charming Verona
This one is called Benvolio
And that's his friend Mercutio

These two are always in accord
But here comes Tybalt with sword
But in this town I am the law
It's tough 'cos everyone's at war

Mercutio:
He's mad, we are the law here

Benvolio:
We are too wild to be controlled

Tybalt:
I am too brave, I am too bold

Chorus:
In Verona, come to Verona
The population is unique
Nobody turns the other cheek
The hate keeps flowing in our veins
Hate is more powerful than chains
No wonder danger's in the air
The enemy is everywhere




Born to Hate



Lady Capulet:
We're born to hate
Soon as we leave
Our mother's wombs
Hate's in the air
And to survive
We breathe its fumes
We love to hate
Hatred's the third word that we learn
Mama, Papa
And after that it's hatred's turn
We're born to hate
It's like a serpent in the soul
We're so consumed
It seems the serpent's in control
We love to hate

Lady Montague:
We are the same
I too can see
Things I despise
Year after year
Poisonous hate
Burns from your eyes
There's so much hate
Day after day the children grieve
Just look at them
And see the legacy we leave
In every street
A broken heart, a blood-stained sword
We fight to win
But it's a fight without reward

Lady Capulet:
You've paid the price
Look at your face
Hate's in each pore of your wretched skin
Another day, another death
You'll pass it on to your next of kin

Lady Montague:
It makes us old before our time
Hate is a whore, a plague, a curse
I doubt if we will live to see
Hate disappear from the universe

Both:
It makes us old before our time
Hate is a whore, a plague, a curse

Lady Capulet:
I doubt if we will live to see

Both:
Hate disappear from the universe

Ooooh...

Chorus:
We're born to hate
It's like a serpent in the soul
We're so consumed
It seems the serpent's in control




All Days Are The Same Without Love



Romeo:
I feel I'm killing time, my life is slipping by
There has to be someone who feels the same as I
I long to find a love that's deep and strong and true
There has to be someone who wants the same things too
As soon as I find her
My world will start turning
But real love is elusive
That's something I'm learning

Juliet:
They say I'm very young, I'm going through a phase
And I must learn to curb my adolescent ways
There must be more to life than what my eyes have seen
But every yesterday becomes a might-have-been
I am longing
For someone to hold me
And tell me while we're dancing
What no one has told me

Romeo:
All days are the same without love
Sundays, Tuesdays, Thursdays

Juliet:
Strange how nothing ever changes
Summers, springs and winters drift by

Romeo & Juliet:
All days are the same without love
When no one's beside you
Who cares if the moon seems closer
Or the stars seem brighter
All days are the same without love
But with love the days grow
Each one's an adventure
Anything can happen
No heart ever ages
Each day's been created
For you

All days are the same without love
But with love the days grow
Each one's an adventure
Anything can happen
No heart ever ages
Each day's been created
For you

All days are the same without love




The Request of Marriage



Paris:
I will make the perfect groom
I love your child and I am rich
So rich, give her to me
What must I do?
I could help you
I'll pay off your debts
I'll be like a son
My heart will not rest
'Til we are one
I beg of you, she is my life
Please allow your Juliet to be my wife

Count Capulet:
My dear friend, control your lust
Take a deep breath, you're overwrought
In short, when one's aroused
I am afraid mistakes are made
She's just a child, fourteen tender years
Motherhood must wait, she's too young for tears
To take a heart before its time
Would be a rash, irresponsible crime
Not Juliet, not quite yet
Take it slow, enjoy the dance
One shouldn't rush a great romance




You Must Marry



Lady Capulet:
For all its faults
Whatever cynics say
Marriage, my dear
Invigorates each day
How lucky you are
For somebody so young

Juliet:
But I'm not in love

Lady Capulet:
For once, hold your tongue
He's handsome and rich
He's sent from above
How stupid of Paris
To have picked you to love
'Juliet' and 'Paris'
Your names seem to go so well

Lady Capulet and The Nurse:
Time to think of marriage

The Nurse:
Listen to your mother

Lady Capulet:
My daughter the bride!
Last night I just cried, and cried

Juliet:
Wasted tears, mother
I'm not a bride yet!

I'm thrilled he asked
But I prefer to wait
I doubt he's the type
That I'd choose for a mate

Lady Capulet:
That's just where you're wrong
It's all a game of chance
The world's full of hags
Who waited for romance

Juliet:
I'm not in love
I cannot be his wife

Nurse:
Your daughter is spoiled

Lady Capulet:
She has been all her life
A room full of toys
And still she wanted more

The Nurse:
They're still in her room
All over the floor
Dream the same dreams
To fall head over heels
But fate makes sure that everyone
Adjusts their ideals

Lady Capulet:
You will grow to love him
As I did your father
On the day we met
He was in a state

(Spoken)
Well, he could hardly stand up straight
He was drunk and overweight

Juliet:
You're starting to sound
Like an old mother hen

Lady Capulet:
You will have to learn to
Change your thinking about men
Why, even the Bible
Gets revised now and again




Kings of the World



Romeo:
Kings of the world running our lives
Powerful husbands with ambitious wives
Ever-so-smug 'cause they make all the rules
They are not kings, just a bunch of old fools

Benvolio:
Kings of the world planning ahead
They haven't noticed they're already dead
They eat the fat and they toss us the bones
Transparent kings sitting on paper thrones

Chorus:
We know how to live we squeeze the juice from every moment
We make love day after day night after night we sing we dance
It makes no sense in being careful not when time files like an arrow
We take every risk that's out there we're prepared to take that chance
We are the...

Mercutio:
Kings of the world, free as the wind
Looking for sins that we haven't yet sinned
They think they're smart, but they're really quite dumb
You miss the tune when you're banging your drum

Romeo & Benvolio:
Kings of the world, they're just a joke
They are not kings, they're just misguided folk
Boring as hell and as dull as can be

Benvolio:
One thing's for sure: they would love to be me!

Repeat Chorus

Romeo:
We'll take the chance!

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Time is like an arrow
We take every risk that's out there
We'll take the chance
Kings of the World!




The Ball 1 (Instrumental)






Born to Love



Romeo:
I know there is a God
And he has heard my prayer
That face, look at that face
Look at those eyes
What star did you fall from?

Juliet:
I know why I'm alive, I see the reason why
That smile that heart stopping smile
Those breath-taking lips
I will not forget this moment

Romeo:
You and I were born to love
Finally my life has now begun

Juliet:
You and I were born to love
I know in my heart you are the one

Romeo:
Nothing in this world will stand in our way

Juliet:
You don't have to speak I hear what you say

Both:
You and I were born to love
Finally my life has now begun
Our love will outlive the sea
Longer than eternity

You and I were born to love
Finally my life has now begun
Our love will outlive the sea
Longer than eternity



The Ball 2 (Instrumental)






She Can't See Me



Tybalt:
She can't see me
She can't hear me
One day, she'll know I exist
I will charm her 'till she loves me
Not a single joy will be missed
In her eyes, I'm just a cousin
Soon my feelings will become clear
If she knew how much I love her
She would stop and re-think her life
I'm the one who she should marry
She can't be another man's wife
One day I'll be brave and tell her
I'll destroy whoever comes near




Two Different Worlds



Juliet:
Who is the god above me
Who summoned that you should love me?
Why has he blessed us in this way?
I know I'll thank him every day
My heart was wise to choose you
But they'll want me to refuse you
Now that we know where we belong
They're bound to say it's wrong
Just take a look around us
A sea of fools surround us
But they will see before we're done
Two different worlds become one

Romeo:
What star or god above me
Decided that you should love me?
Forbidden love comes at a price
But it is worth the sacrifice
They don't know what they're saying
This love of ours is staying
I'm not prepared to say goodbye
Until the day I die

Both:
Two different worlds they live in
Why don't they all just give in?
The winds of war keep blowing
The seeds of hate keep growing

All I want to do
Is live and die with you

My heart was wise to choose you
There's no way I can refuse you
They will all see before we're done
Two different worlds come one
My heart was wise to choose you
I'd rather die than ever lose you
We'll make them see before we're done
Two different worlds come one




All For Love



Friar:
Love makes fools out of wise men

Romeo:
But without love, what are we?

Friar:
My love is for God

Romeo:
I'm in love with an angel

Fria:r
Love can be an illusion

Romeo:
This love is no illusion

Friar:
Can you trust your young heart?

Romeo:
Until death do us part
Marry me, I beg you
I want to lay down beside her
Friar, please
I promise I'll pray every single day
If you'll marry me

Friar:
Are you sure? Are you certain?

Romeo:
As the dawn, as the sunset

Friar:
Marriage may be the way

Could it end all their hatred?
Could it be...?

Romeo:
Living without her would be too much to bear
What good's a morning without Juliet there?

Friar:
A Montague, a Capulet, living as man and wife
I will be either be blessed or I'll be damned for life

Romeo:
Your God will forgive
He knows that our love is true

Friar:
I was thinking of my soul for a moment or two

Romeo:
You have the power to make sure all fighting ends
Imagine Capuletís being Montagueís' friends
Friar, please

Both:
All for love we are living
Every day we are giving, all for love

Friar:
I will marry you

Both:
What things we do, all for love




Ugly or Beautiful



The Nurse:
Ha, ha, ha! I hear you laugh!
Ha, ha, ha! Such a childish laugh
You don't understand what it means to love
You should not make fun of the heart
Ha, ha, ha! You are so cocksure
I've met imbeciles who are more mature
You live half a life, you walk in the shade
If the game of love isn't ever played
You should heed my words

Benvolio:
Ha, ha, ha! Well, that is rich
What can we hope to learn from this worn-out witch?
Handsome Romeo is just having fun
They'll be this one, and then another one
Love is for the birds

All:
Ugly or beautiful
Life is all twists and turns
No map to show us where to go
Where will life lead us
Who's to know?
Ugly or beautiful
We're all afraid of love
We guard against it with our lives
But we thank God we're here to rise

The Nurse:
Ha, ha, ha! What can I do?
'Ha ha ha' is all I get from you
You are all so vain
Love is just a joke
One day all your dreams will go up in smoke
Laughter turns to screams

Mercutio:
Ha ha ha! Love is just a phase
With the young it can last for days
Lovers' tears aren't real, and their pain's not deep
It's a time to laugh, not a time to weep
They dream harmless dreams

All:
Ugly or beautiful
Life is all twists and turns
No map to show us where to go
Where will life lead us
Who's to know?
Ugly or beautiful
We're all afraid of love
We guard against it with our lives
But we thank God we're here to rise

Benvolio:
Ugly or beautiful
We're all afraid, afraid of love

Mercutio:
Love is only for the birds

All:
Ugly or beautiful
Life is all twists and turns
No map to show us where to go
Where will life lead us
Who's to know?
Ugly or beautiful
We're all afraid of love
We guard against it with our lives
But we thank God we're here to rise




And Now She is in Love



The Nurse:
I have cared for her
Each day of her young life
The baby in my arms
Is soon to be a wife
She isn't of my flesh
She doesn't share my name
Her humor and her looks
Aren't something I can claim
My Juliet is grown up

And now she is in love
And everything has changed
Her feelings and her hair
Have all be re-arranged
And while her heart bursts
Mine's starting to break
I am only her nurse
So why do I find this so hard to take?
She's eager to fly
But oh, how fragile her wings
But then she's in love

Wide-eyed Romeo
And love-struck Juliet
It seems their love was doomed
Before they even met
Their worlds are worlds apart
Too much of a divide
Her heart is bound to break
If she becomes his bride
Oh Juliet, I'm frightened

But she is so in love
And every day's a dance
And good old common sense
Doesn't stand a chance
I've done all I can
What more can I do?
When I was in love like her
I was foolish too...
So eager to fly
Oh how fragile my wings
But then, I was in love

The air I was breathing then
Was like vintage wine
And the darkest of nights
Still managed to shine
The love disappeared
The memory stayed
There's still a glimmer of light in me
That will never fade

I know how she feels
She's eager to fly
But then she's in love

Now she is in love




These Are My Rivers



Romeo:
Your eyes, these are my rivers
One glance can start a journey
That takes me to wondrous places
Your eyes, these are my rivers

Juliet:
Your arms, these are my mountains
Hold me, and stars seem closer
No one can ever reach us
Your arms, these are my mountains

Romeo & Juliet:
No need to ever wander
We have the world before us
Don't move, let's always stay here
My heart, has found its way here

Julie:
Your smile, your voice, your laughter
New worlds that need exploring

Romeo:
And yet there's no need to leave here

Romeo & Juliet:
These things, these are my rivers

Chorus:
Your eyes, these are my rivers
One glance can start a journey
That takes me to wondrous places
Your eyes, these are my rivers
Your arms, these are my mountains

Romeo:
These are my mountains

Chorus:
Hold me, and stars seem closer

Romeo:
Stars seem closer

Chorus:
No one can ever reach us
Your arms, these are my mountains
Your smile, your voice, your laughter

Juliet:
Your smile, your voice

Chorus:
New worlds that need exploring

Romeo:
Exploring

Chorus:
And yet there's no need to leave here
These things, they'll be my rivers

Always, always, always, always

Itís Today



Tybalt:
Iíll stop his plan , his evil plan
A Montague will never take my love from me

Iím jealous, yes, at his success
But only I know how the stories end will be
I canít conceal the way I feel
It time to do what I must do
She doesnít know I love her so
A cousin isnít meant to carry on this way
I wonít allow this boy to ever touch her skin
Iím ready for the fight that I alone can win

Itís today, itís today, my life starts from today
The day when he takes his last breathe
The day when he shakes hands with death
My sword will pierce his cowardly heart
Iíll burry him deep
From tomorrow me and Juliet will not be apart

I long to see jer look I me
The way she looks at him but that will happen soon
Weíll talk and we will touch
We will laugh and drink too much
My dream will come true before the mid-night moon

Itís today, Itís today, my life starts from today
Soon as his body is laid to rest
My love for her will be expressed
I'll say the things that I never did
Itís my turn to enjoy all of the things

That her and Romeo share
(Its today) I'll dance upon his grave
(Its today) A lighting thrust, it will be over
(its today) I'll restore my family's honor
(its today) I'll make him pay for her weak ways

I'm coming for you
You've no place to hide
Romeo live your last day
Tonight as we kiss you will be heading for hell




Live



Mercutio:
Tybalt, Tybalt, youíre gonna die
Tybalt youíll find no one will cry
You turn my stomach I wanna be sick
Iíll be nice to you Iíll slaughter you quick
You slither and slide like a snake in the grass
But your tongue spits a More poisonous venom
Tybalt, Tybalt, you're gonna die

Tybalt:
Mercutio, youíre just a buffoon
Youíre stupid mouth will be silenced soon
Youíre just a failed poet an embarrassing moron
Iím going to do what Iíve been dying to do
And now I will end your sad journey through life
You wonít feel a thing Iím good with a knife
Mercutio, youíre going to die

Romeo:
This must stop youíre Both mad is life nothing to you
If we all kill each other what good will it do this must end

Chorus:
Live let's learn to live forget forgive and live as one
Let's all live in peace let fighting cease for man and son

Daughters and sons what's wrong with you

Benvolio:
Live as God intended all wars must be ended

Chorus:
Live, let's learn to live forget forgive and live as one

We must all make a vow no blood will be spilled
We'll die in our beds and no one will be killed
Live as God intended all wars must be ended

Mercutio:
He's too bad to live
He's riddled with hate
Too bad for us to tolerate
A coward and an evil force a murderer without remorse

Tybalt:
Your friends are here so your tongue is loose
I'm sure you'll find some lame excuse
But there's no way out I'm not letting you go
Get ready to revieve your fatal blow
Live...Live while you can
Die, die like a man

Chorus:
Live/ die we will all die
Live/ die why even try
Live/ die what's done is done
Live/ die nowhere to run
Live/ die we will all die
Live/ die why even try
Live/ die we will all die/ live




Dying In the Dust



Mercutio:
I curse the day I met
A wretched Montague
And all those Capuletís
Are just as wretched too

Your all heading for hell
Thereís no hope anymore
I would say that God has got some things to answer for

Iím dying in the dust
But Iím dying like a king
And made the most of life
I donít regret a thing
Iím dying in the dust
But Iím dying like a king
Iím free now as the wind
I donít regret a thing

Romeo:
Iíll keep you alive
Iíll speak of you
Forever
Iíll keep you alive
Youíll live in me now

Iíll keep you alive
Youíll live in me nowÖ




Revenge



Lord Capulet:
It's only fair
He must pay the ultimate price
Your son must die
There's no need for legal advice

Lady Montague:
It isn't fair
He just made sure justice was done
Mercutio's death
Had to be avenged by my son

The Prince:
What's done is done
This war of your's cannot be won
When will the past
Be forgotten

Romeo:
I don't want blood on my hands
I turn from volience when I can
My dearest friend died my arms
And Tybalt was an evil man
He stood there laughing
Bragging, and laughing

You two have no right to judge
You killed him as much as I
Were your children, take some blame
You could be the reason why
Into this world you brought us
To live the way you taught us

Repeat Lord Capulet Chorus (1x)

Repeat Lady Montague Chorus (1x)


The Prince:
What's done is done
This war of yours cannot be won
It's time the past -

Chorus:
The past is not forgotten

The Prince:
It's over




Verona(Reprise)



The Prince:
It is just another death
And as they say what else is new
Lessons will be learn from this
I'm a fool to think they will

Only so much you can learn
How many mountains can you climb
I can see this going on
Till there's no one left to kill

Only so much
You can take
The strongest mountains often shake
I might as well be on my way
Why does anybody stay...
In sad verona
Hopeless Verona

Where all our dreams are quickly gone
Not worth the sky there written on
I get the feeling if I die
They should take it in there stride
Ignorance of law
Hopeless Verona
Loveless Verona

I wish I knew how to concieve...
A miracle is what we need
Something beyond the reach of man
Some merciful almighty plan
This hatred it must come to an end
They'll be no lives left to mend

In Verona




Fools



The Nurse:
I bare the pain you bare
I cry the tears you cry
Juliet, you must be strong
Every time I see you cry
I die, I die
We both must try
What more to you am I?

Oh, fools
Men are fools
There like stubborn mules
Refusing to bend
Where will all this end?
What can any of us do?
How much more can we go through?
When will every man lay down his sword?
When will we all live in accord?
When will the lord visit Verona?

Friar:
The Prince has saved your life
It was kind of him to banish you
Half of this town is after your blood
The blood of a Montague
I say your life is worthless here
Youíve everything to fear

Oh, fools
Men are fools
There like, stubborn mules
Refusing to bend
Where will all this end?
What can any of us do?
How much more can we go through?

Both:
When will every man lay down his sword?
When will we all live in accord?
When will the lord visit Verona?

Chorus:
Fools
Men are fools
They canít live by rules
They always want more
Theyíre in love with war
Why are they so proud to fight?
And destroy with all theyíre might
Why is it important to be brave?
Why do we all need flags to wave
Why canít we save precious Verona?
Verona




No Place Too Far



Romeo:
What pain dawn brings
What mournful song the lark sings
I have to leave
Itís time to go
Donít say a word
I know

Juliet:
Oh my love
You are wrong
You must have heard the night birds song
I canít bare the silent
The cruelest word is goodbye
If you must leave, as you must do
Iíll follow you

No place too far
I have to be where you are
Love me, dream me
Until you see me

Romeo:
No place too far
My heart will be where you are
No matter where I look
Your face is what Iíll see
How can we be apart
When you live inside of me

Juliet:
Take this
Why am I so frightened?

Both:
No place too far
I have to be where you are
Love me, dream me
Until you see me

No place is too far
I want to be where you are

Sheís Yours


Lord Capulet:
Paris
I give to you my precious daughter
Itís time
Perfect time for you to marry
When I speak with the girl
I am sure sheíll agree
Itís the best thing for her
She will listen to me

Sheís yours
Sheís yours
Sheís yours
Lucky man, sheís yours

Lady Capulet:
Juliet
You know how much your father loves you
We Both
Are sure heíll make the perfect husband
We have all known such grief
Now itís time to let go
Paris is quite a catch
You will be glad, I know
Heís yours
Heís yours
Heís yours
Lucky girl, heís yours

Paris:
Now we should rejoice
Itís time for celebration

Paris and Lady Capulet:
Thereís much too do
A wedding takes
A lot of preparation

Chorus:
Sheís yours
Sheís yours
Sheís yours
Lucky man, sheís yours

Juliet:
Please Nurse
Tell them I cannot marry Paris
Please Nurse
It makes me ill to think about it
Please nurse I beg of you
Is there nothing you can do?
Iíll refuse to obey
Iím married anyway

Chorus:
Sheís yours
Sheís yours
Sheís yours
Lucky man, sheís yours

Donít act like a lovesick child

Lucky girl, he's yours

Donít let him down

Juliet:

Chorus:

Lucky girl, heís yours




She Came From Me



Lord Capulet:
I have been blessed why should this be?
Why have the Gods looked down on me?
Her girlish laugh her open ways
They invade my days and light my days
My Juliet so sweet, so small
A smile that could make giants fall
The greatest joy Iíll never know
Is knowing she still loves me so I canít believe

She came from me she came from me
Hard to believe she came from me
I live for her, I die for
I am so proud and yet I fear
This angry world will get to near

This world is filled with selfish men
Who turn girls head time and again
I know its time to set her free
But letting go os hard for me
The time has come

These days she wears a painted face
Her heartbeats at a faster pace
Another man has come and captured her
Heís so polite, he calls me sir
I welcomed him, thatís what you do
I tell myself he loves her too
No one will see what I go through
She is a joy She is a curse
The ruler of my universe
If Paris lets her down, he wouldnít dare
If he breaks her heart Iíll break him I swear
I'll live in her when I am gone
To think that I will still live on
How can it be she came from me

A gift from god, a precious prize
I stare and canít believe my eyes
I watched her grow and grow and grow
Thereís one thing I will never know, how can it be

She came from me




All Days Are The Same Without You



Romeo:
I cannot find a thing
To occupy my mind
I donít know what to do
Time can be so unkind
It seems a hundred hours
In every endless day
And yet when you are near
Time just flies away
Memories restore me
Thatís what keeps me going
The rivers of still love
Theyíll soon be flowing

Juliet:
My life is being planned
By everyone but me
I canít believe that this is
How life is meant to be
I wish I had a wand
That I could simply wave
And I would just reverse
The wisdom they all gave
With this wand
All my pain would be ended
And weíd be together
I pray God, until death

Romeo:
All days are the same without love
Sundays, Tuesdays, Thursdays

Juliet:
Strange how nothing ever changes
and just wait till nothing matters

Both:
All days are the same without you
Without you beside me
Who cares if the moon seems closer
Or the stars seem brighter
All days are the same without you
But with you the days glow
Each one's an adventure
Anything can happen
My heart never ages
Each day's been created
For you

All days are the same without you
But with you the days glow
Each one's an adventure
Anything can happen
My heart never ages
Each day's been created
For you

All days are the same without you




Ugly Or Beautiful/ Born To Hate/ Fools (Reprise)



Capulets:
Ha, ha, ha filthy Montagues
Ha, ha, ha they were born to lose
They have spoiled our day but they always do
It is time that we settled this

Montagues:
Ha, ha, ha evil Capulets
Ha ha, ha they have no regrets
They do wicked deeds yet they all sleep well
They will feel at home when they get to hell
Lets blow them a kiss

Ugly or beautiful
Life is all twists and turns
No map to show us where to go
Where will life lead us, who's to know?

Ugly or beautiful we all know how to hate
Were all prepared to fight and die
We pray but we get no reply

Were born to hate
Soon as we leave our mothers wombs
Its in the air
And to survive we breathe its fumes

Capulets: Montagues:
Were born to hate Ha, ha, ha evil capulets
As its in the air Ha, ha, ha they have no regrets
Its in the They do wicked things but they all sleep well
Its in the air They will feel at home when they get to hell
And to survive Lets blow them a akiss
We breathe its
We breathe its
Fumes

Repeat all and add the Chorus to "Fools" sung by The Nurse




I Can't Do This



Benvolio:
How does one begin to say
All the dreams you dreamed died today
All your visions of a perfect life are over

How on earth do I find the words that will somehow ease your pain?
Help me, God, where do I start?
Why must I destroy my best friend's heart?
We were once kings of the world
We just laughed our way through those carefree years
In a way, I wish they had never met
Wish that I could bring back Juliet
That can't be... no, that can't be

I can't do this, I can't do this
I will not break the news, this tragic news
He should be told by a priest
Someone who is old and wise
Who can find the reason why
Someone so young just dies
I can't do this, and yet I know
I must do this

Mercutio, where is your ghost?
How dare you die when I need you most
Everything we ever did, we did together

I cannot do this on my own
Sorry, I'm not made that way
Do I say that the time will heal
That he will live through this ordeal?
What if I break down and cry?
That would be the worst thing I could do
I don't trust myself, I will get it wrong
I'm too close a friend, I'm not that strong
No, not me,,, it can't be me

I can't do this, I can't do this
I know how I would be if he told me
I would drink myself to sleep, and I'd pray I'd never wake
That way I'd never hear, the scream a heart can make
I must do this, God give me strength, and I'll do this

I can do this, I must do this
I know I am the one, the only one
We are still kings of the world, and that's what we'll always be
He knows how much I love him
It's best he hears from me
I must do this, I will do this I must do this, I must do this




God Knows Why



Romeo:
Itís not enough to say I knew you
Itís not enough to say I loved you
Iím coming to you
Wait there, my love
Itís not enough to live with memories
Itís not enough to relieve every moment
I want more my love

If were born to live together
Then were born to die together

God knows why
Iíve lost you
I donít know why something like this could happen
I just want to forget all my sorrow

Only with you can ease my pain
Iím afraid of being apart
Itís too much for my heart

God knows why
Iíve lost you
Why so many pleasures will be denied us
We never danced in the rain
Weíve not laughed in the sun
The music just stopped when it had just begun
Wait there, Juliet , Iíll soon be with you
Far from this world

God knows why
Itís over
I donít care
The reasons donít matter
Iím too tired to go on
All I live for has gone
But weíll meet in the sky
So Iíll not say goodbye
Iíll be with you soon
And weíll dance on the moon
Beyond the stars




Where Rivers Keep Flowing



Juliet:
Why remain here and grow old?
I donít want to live like this
I could not endure the quite
If I'm with you what's there to miss
Without you life is just a word
And all days will be the same
Iím not strong enough to stay here
If this is wrong Iíll take the blame

Weíll soon be together
Morning will find us
Where Rivers Keep Flowing
With mountains all around us
And peace in the heavens
You gave away your life for me
And now at last weíll Both be free
Where Rivers Keep Flowing
With this world far below us
Away from the hatred
No battles ever really won
When somebody has lost a son

Wait for me Iíll soon be there
Iíll be your eternal bride
No more dreaming in the shadows
Theyíll be no feelings we must hide

As I die I wonder
Whatís to believe in?

Itís too late for questions
And no one has the answers
But what does it matter
You gave away your life for me
And now at last we'll Both be free

Where Rivers Keep Flowing
With this world far below us
When dawn breaks tomorrow
Theyíll be no bloodshed and no wars
The eyes Iíll gaze upon will be yours




Empty Skies



Friar Laurence:
Dear God, Dear God
What are you doing up there?
Have I been speaking to an empty sky?
If not, then tell me why
I gave my life to you my faith had never been in doubt
The sings that pleasure man I have learned to live without
Till now I believed that you were everywhere
But if the good still die then what's the sense of prayer
We scream but you don't hear, we look to you in vain
If you really exist, then why don't you explain
Don't leave me now

Dear God, Dear God
Forgive me if I fail you
I always thought that faith would keep me strong
I see, now I was wrong
What good are sacred words
Written in books as old as time
The mountain that's ahead of me
Maybe too high climb
Can I still spread your word?
Can I still be your voice?
I thought my life was you, but I feel I have a choice
I got down on my knees dead God give me a sign
Tell me that all of this, is in your grand design
Please don't leave me know

I comfort and I soothe the troubled and the weak
I give my people strength when everything was bleak
With you inside of me, no wound could be too deep
But now I feel I'm lost, have I the right to weep?
I need your help right now, tell me what must be done
You are still my Father and I am still you son don't leave me now

Dear God, where are you hiding
Dear God, speak to me
I need to know your plan
When will all of this make sense to me
I'm blind, make me see

Dear God, of all men
Please shine a light my way
Give me some hope to face the day
I'm lost, all I can do is pray




Gulity



Lady Montague:
Thereís no pain deeper
Thereís no day darker
Itís the cruelest nightmare
To outlive your children
We have let this happen
And so we must share the blame

Lady Capulet:
Angry gods will judge us
For the harm we did them
May theyíre souls forgive us
May they rest in heaven
And stay in love forever
As we bow our heads in shames

Lady Montague: :
Let their deaths unite us

Lady Capulet:
Let us join together

Lady Montague, Lady Capulet, The Nurse:
They way to honor
Romeo and Juliet >

Let their deaths unite us
Let us join together

The Nurse:
Give their lives some meaning

Lady Montague, Lady Capulet, The Nurse:
Romeo and Juliet

Chorus:
Fools
Men are fools
There like
Stubborn mules
Refusing to bend
Where will all this end?
What can any of us do?
How much more can we go through?
When will every man lay down his sword?
When will we all live in accord?
When will the lord visit Verona?

Repeat (x1)

Fools
Men are fools
They canít
Live by rules
They always want more
Theyíre in love with war
Why are they so proud to fight?
And destroy with all their might
Why is it important to be brave?
Why do we all need flags to wave
How can we save precious Verona?

Lovely Verona




The End
