Another Day lyrics

Another Day

(The loft. MIMI plants a huge kiss on ROGER, who recoils.)

ROGER
Who do you think you are?
Barging in on me and my guitar
Little girl -- hey
The door is that way
You better go you know
The fire's out anyway
Take your powder -- take your candle
Your sweet whisper
I just can't handle
Well take your hair in the moonlight
Your brown eyes -- goodbye, goodnight
I should tell you I should tell you
I should tell you I should -- no!
Another time -- another place
Our temperature would climb
There'd be a long embrace
We'd do another dance
It'd be another play
Looking for romance?
Come back another day
Another day

MIMI
The heart may freeze or it can burn
The pain will ease if I can learn
There is no future
There is no past
I live this moment as my last
There's only us
There's only this
Forget regret
Or life is yours to miss
No other road
No other way
No day but today

ROGER
Excuse me if I'm off track
But if you're so wise
Then tell me -- why do you need smack?
Take your needle
Take your fancy prayer
And don't forget
Get the moonlight out of your hair
Long ago -- you might've lit up my heart
But the fire's dead -- ain't never ever gonna start
Another time -- another place
The words would only rhyme
We'd be in outer space
It'd be another song
We'd sing another way
You wanna prove me wrong?
Come back another day
Another day

MIMI
There's only yes
Only tonight
We must let go
To know what's right
No other course
No other way
No day but today

(Lights slowly fade up on the Life Support group.)

MIMI & OTHERS
I can't control
ROGER
Control your temper
MIMI & OTHERS
My destiny
ROGER
She doesn't see
MIMI & OTHERS
I trust my soul
ROGER
Who says that there's a soul
MIMI & OTHERS
My only goal is just to be
ROGER
Just let me be

MIMI & OTHERS
There's only now
There's only here
Give in to love
Or live in fear
No other path
No other way
No day but today
ROGER (simultaneously)
Who do you think you are?
Barging in on me and my guitar
Little girl, hey
The door is that way
The fire's out anyway

MIMI & OTHERS
No day but today
No day but today
No day but today
No day but today
No day but today
ROGER (simultaneously)
Take your powder; take your candle
Take your brown eyes, your pretty smile, your silhouette
Another time, another place
Another rhyme, a warm embrace
Another dance, another way
Another chance, another day


(MIMI and the Life Support group members exit. One person,
STEVE, remains at stage right, above.)
