TONIGHT: As presented by the End of the World Players

TONIGHT: WEST SIDE STORY as presented by the End of the World Players….

Tonight, tonight
The world will end tonight
With clouds of doom and fire raining down

Tonight, tonight
We’ll all die after tonight
So, F it all, let’s get drunk and go to town!!

Today, the world is somewhat rainy
A normal kind of Thursday
That opened with dawn’s light

But here we are
The final hours circling our star!
Tonight!!!!!

OFFSTAGE: Veruca!
MARIA: Un momento, Papa.
OFFSTAGE: No tenemos un minuto! Hay que prepararse para el fin del mundo, y el fuego del infierno y la condenación!
MARIA: Si, Papa, si.

TOGETHER:
Tonight, tonight
We’ll all just die tonight
With suns and moons all over the place

The bits of the sky
Will burn out every eye
Leaving horrible scars upon my face!!

Today, the world was just an address
A place for us to live in,
But if the Mayans were right….

Just get with me
Cause tomorrow, you’ll be consequence-free!
We’re done tonight!

Asian Baby

I saw a gay couple walking down the street with the cutest little Asian baby.  And this popped into my head.Maybe I’ll write the music to this, post a somewhat offensive video, and put it on YouTube.

Here is my new song I just wrote:
I’ve got my car, and I’ve got my house
And thanks to some new legislation, I’ve even got my gay spouse
The thing I’m missing, that could quite simply be
The crowning achievement to the fabulous me…

An Asian baby
An Asian baby
Made in China, Korea, or Japan
An Asian Baby
An Asian Baby
Having one of those would make me a happy gay man.

My charm is a winner, and I’ll cook you dinner
I’m always on a quest to be fit and thinner
My musical tastes range from Gaga to Judy
All I’m missing now is a knitted bootie for my

Asian baby
Asian baby
She’s the key to completing my set
Asian baby
Asian baby
Cause, let’s face it, it doesn’t matter if you’re homo or het…

You can’t resist those chubby cheeks
That raven black hair, and those eyes that seek
The parents that rescued her from Beijing
Having her would mean having everything!!!
VOICEOVER:
Asian baby, you know I love you. I can’t imagine my life without you. If only you would make your way over here, you would bring great honor upon my entire family!

Asian baby!
Asian baby!
I know I could get one for a steal
Asian baby
Asian baby
Imagine her, me and my partner sharing every meal!
Asian baby
Asian baby
Piano, gymnastics, French, juggling, math, and a chess whiz
Asian baby
Asian Baby
Because she’d be mine, well, mine and his! Yeah!

Lonely Road

Lonely Road
Passing Day
Carry these thoughts away

Bittersweet
Days go on
The dreams I had are now forgone

How did we ever get this way?
Blinded by the future that I dreamed
All my doubts are now in play
And the life I knew is not what it seemed

Down this road
To who knows where
Strange, I always thought you would be there

But it’s clear
That dreams do die
Now I’m left here, still wondering why

How did we ever get this way?
Blinded by the future that I dreamed
All my doubts are now in play
And the life I knew is not what it seemed.

Down this road
To who knows where
Strange, I always thought you would be there

But it’s clear
That dreams do die
And now, I guess this is goodbye.

Southbound Train

I’ve modified the lyrics to this…but this about sums up how I’m feeling right now:

I’m sitting on a southbound train, staring at the sky
I’m thinking of my childhood and I’m trying not to cry
While a stranger sleeps against me and it feels like she’s my wife
The towns and cities flutter past like the pages of my life

My heart is on the baggage rack, it’s heavy as can be
I wish that I could find someone who would carry it for me
Just to pay it some attention and to handle it with care
Because it has been dropped and is in need of some repair

Some things I know, some things I guess
Some things I wish that I could learn to express
Like the way that I feel as I stare at the sky
And I remember your voice and the sound of goodbye

Maybe it’s the autumn chill, maybe it’s the rain
Maybe I should wake the stranger and ask her her name
But my eyes they would betray me, and my words could not defend
No, I must learn to wait my turn before I love again

Some things I know, some things I guess
Some things I wish that I could learn to express
Like the way that I feel as I stare at the sky
And I remember your voice and the sound of goodbye

LYRICS

Here are some new lyrics I’ve been thinking about writing.  We’ll see what they become.

 

Of course, all content is mine.  And shall remain mine.

 

I’m not sure I’ll know the answers
I can try, that’s all I’ll promise you
I don’t forget that you’ll forgive me
For all I’ve put you through

Everyday, I wish I acted different
Wasn’t swayed by promises not true
None of this can change what’s happened
Or return the time I took from you

I can’t change anything I’ve done
That song’s been sung
And no one’s won

All I can do is hope that you can see
This wasn’t meant to be
And what you mean to me

I will do whatever you it will take
I’d climb mountains, cross oceans if I must
But there’s been too much heartbreak
And I can’t live without your trust

I can’t change Anything I’ve done
That song’s been sung
And no one’s won

All I can do is hope that you can see
This wasn’t meant to be
And what you mean to me
Yes, what you mean to me
