I'll Cover You (Reprise) lyrics

I'll Cover You (Reprise)

(In a church. Angel's memorial)

MIMI
Angel was one of my closest friends.
It's right that it's Halloween, because it was her favorite holiday.
I knew we'd hit it off from the moment we met.
That skin head was bothering her, and she said she was more of a man than he'd ever be,
and more of a woman than he'd ever get...

MARK
...and then there was that time that he walked up to this group of tourists... and,
they were petrified, because, a)
they were obviously lost, and b)
they had probably never spoken
to a drag queen before in their lives...and he...she just offered
to escort them out of Alphabet City,
and then she let them take a picture with her,
and then she said she'd help 'em find the
Circle Line...

MAUREEN
...so much more original then any of us...you'd find
an old table cloth on the street and make a dress...and next year, sure
enough -- they'd be mass producing them at the Gap.
You always said how lucky you were that we were all friends.
But it was us, baby, who were the lucky ones.

COLLINS
Live in my house
I'll be your shelter
Just pay me back
With one thousand kisses
Be my lover
And I'll cover you
Open your door -- I'll be your tenant
Don't got much baggage to lay at your feet
But sweet kisses I've got to spare
I'll be there -- I'll cover you
I think they meant it
When they said you can't buy love
Now I know you can rent it
A new lease you were, my love, on life
All my life
I've longed to discover
Something as true
As this is

(The following is sung simultaneously.)

JOANNE & SOLOIST
So with a thousand sweet kisses
I'll cover you with a thousand sweet kisses
I'll cover you with a thousand sweet kisses
I'll cover you iwht a thousand sweet kisses
I'll cover you

COLLINS
If you're cold and you're lonely
You've got one nickel only
When you're worn out and tired
When your heart has expired

COMPANY
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand moments so dear
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred -- measure a year
Oh lover I'll cover you
Oh lover I'll cover you

COLLINS & COMPANY
Oh lover
I'll cover you
Oh lover

COLLINS
I'll cover you

COMPANY
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand seasons of love

COLLINS
I'll cover you
