Light in the East / Finale Act I lyrics

Light in the East / Finale Act I

The Janitor: (spoken)
Okay...I'll start over.
Big premiere.
Five A.M.
Sunday mornig.

(sung)
Light in the east
Got a new day
If you listen you can hear it
Miles and Miles away:
Tghe low, low rumble
Of the town wakin' up
With the light in the east
Night in the west.
There's the moon all pale and tired
Like she needs a little rest
'Cause the night's been busy
You can hear it echo:
Bouncin' offa buildings like a ghost.
Yeah, the night's been busy
Tearin' up the city
Like a too-drunk guest
Who steals from his host
And leaves behind
Bleary eyes,
The smell of sex,
And whiskey lies...
Then comes the light in the east
Time I like best.
It's better when the day
Still has it's youth.
Better to walk.
Better to breathe.
Better to see the truth.

The Janitor: (sung)
The Park.
A statue.
A thief.
The truth.

The Medium: (sung)
[overlapping]
And that was all that he said
I'm just repeating his words
You ever talk to the dead?
I only told you the truth.

The Medium/The Janitor: (sung)
The truth
His wife.
His words.
Her beauty.
His spirit.
A scarf.
The dark.

The Theif: (sung)
[overlapping]
It happened just as I said.
What good is lying to you?
I'll get the chair anyway.
I only told you the truth.

The Medium/The Janitor/The Theif: (sung)
The truth
the truth
the truth
Her knife.
A thief.
Her eyes.
A boathouse.
A woman.
Her body.
His blood.
His blood.
Her knife.

The Wife: (sung)
[overlapping]
What do you want me to say?
I tried the best I know how.
I told you all that I know.
I only told you the truth.

The Medium/The Janitor/The Theif/The Wife: (sung)
The truth
The truth
The truth
The truth
A lie.
Her knife.
Her skin.
My love
Her husband.
A statue.
Her temper.
My husband.
The dark.
A fool.

The Husband: (sung)
[overlapping]
There's nothing more after that
There's nothing more that I knew.
There's nothing more of my life.
I only told you the truth

The Medium/The Janitor/The Theif/The Wife/The Husband: (sung)
The truth
The truth
The truth
The truth
The truth.

The truth
The truth
The truth
The truth
The truth.

All: (sung)
The truth--the truth--the truth--the truth--
The....truth....
