As If We Never Said Goodbye



Sunset Boulevard




As If We Never Said Goodbye
From Sunset Boulevard

I don't know why I'm frightened
I know my way around here
The cardboard trees, the painted seas, the sound here...
Yes, a world to rediscover
But I 'm not in any hurry
And I need a moment

The whispered conversations in overcrowded hallways
The atmosphere as thrilling here as always
Feel the early morning madness
Feel the magic in the making
Why, everything's as if we never said goodbye

I've spent so many mornings just trying to resist you
I'm trembling now, you can't know how I've missed you
Missed the fairy tale adventure
In this ever spinning playground
We were young together

I'm coming out of make-up
The lights already burning
Not long until the cameras will start turning...
And the early morning madness
And the magic in the making
Yes, everything's as if we never said goodbye

I don't want to be alone
That's all in the past
This world's waited long enough
I've come home at last!

And this time will be bigger
And brighter than we knew it
So watch me fly, we all know I can do it...
Could I stop my hand from shaking?
Has there ever been a moment
With so much to live for?

The whispered conversations in overcrowded hallways
So much to say not just today but always...
We'll have early morning madness
We'll have magic in the making
Yes, everything's as if we never said goodbye
Yes, everything's as if we never said goodbye...
We taught the world new ways to dream!

OMG! She's talented, eh, Jamie! I know her principally as an incredible actor! What will I do with this tune, hmmm?

I actually had trouble figuring out where to go with this one ... way too many ideas and possibilities.

Have mine up so the the Europeans who drop in later will find one to visit.

This is such a beautiful song. I remember the first time I heard Glen Close sing...I was floored.

I'll miss this week's game, but I'll be back next Monday.
