beautiful song

i loved this musical…..i saw Rent on what should have been it’s last evening in San Francisco. I think it came back….it’s like Cats – people love it so much, that they’re not going to let it go.

it kind of reminds me of my relationship with mark. life is going on – seasons are changing and we can’t watch sunsets together, at least right now.

it’s so difficult to be apart. but we’re also learning how to be strong on our own. we’re also learning to be there for each other, even though we can’t find that physical comfort in a hug. i miss his hugs.

life goes on. we move on. but we still have each other.

“without you”

MAUREEN
Without you, the ground thaws, the rain falls, the grass grows. Without you, the seeds root, the flowers bloom, the children play. The stars gleam, the poets dream, the eagles fly, without you. The earth turns, the sun burns, but I die, without you. Without you, the stars roar the breeze warms, the girl smiles, the cloud moves. Without you, the tides change, the boys run, the oceans crash. The crowds roar, the days soar, the babies cry, without you. The moon glows, the river flows, but I die, without you.

MAUREEN & JOANNE
The world revives, colors renew, but I know blue, only blue, lonely blue, within
me blue.

MAUREEN
Without you. Without you the hand gropes, the ear hears, the pulse beats.

BOTH
Without you, the eyes gaze, the legs walk, the lungs breathe.

JOANNE
The mind churns!

MAUREEN
The mind churns!

JOANNE
The heart yearns!

MAUREEN
The heart yearns!

BOTH
The tears dry, without you. Life goes on, but Im gone.

MAUREEN
Cause I die, without you.

JOANNE
Without you.

BOTH
Without you

ROGER
Where were you?
MIMI
I’m sorry I’m late…

ROGER
I know, You lost your keys. No, you went for a walk; you
had to help your mother. And how’s Benny? I’m going
upstairs tonight.

MIMI
That’s Not…

I Should Tell You
I Should…

Never mind…

ROGER
Happy Spring
