Surrender (Reprise) lyrics
Well, Hello Mr. Gillis
Where have you been keeping yourself?
Someone's been doing it for me
And meanwhile "Blind Windows"
Is stuck on the shelf
You said we'd work together
New Year's crisis, what can I say?
Always full of excuses
Promise I'll call you later today
You said that last time.
Look, Betty, I won't let you down.
I guess I'll just have to trust you.
You're Miss Desmond's German Shepherd?
I'm the one who's been calling
The name is Sheldrake. A couple of weeks ago,
I was looking out my office window, I saw you drive onto the lot.
And I said, that's exactly the car I've been looking for.
Great for my new Crosby picture. So, I made a few inquiries. I've been calling for two weeks.
Doesn't she ever pick up the phone? You know, outside a museum, you don't see
that kind of quality anymore. We're willing to pay, at least a hundred dollars a week...
You insult her
How can you be so cruel?
I forbid you to approach her
Did you see how they all came
They still love me, and soon we'll be
Breaking new ground
Those were the days
Just like before
We had such fun
We gave the world
New ways to dream
We always found new ways to dream
Let's have a good long talk one day.
The old team will be back in business
Sorry, my next shot's ready
What's the matter, Max?
I just found out the reason for all those phone calls from Paramount.
It's not Madame they want. It's her car.
Oh, my God.
Now, you remember, don't you? I don't work before 10 or after 4:30 in the afternoon.
It isn't entirely my decision, Norma. New York must be consulted.
That's fine. Ask any exhibitor in the country. I'm not forgotten.
Of course you're not.
Goodbye, young fellow. We'll what we can do.
I'm not worried. It's so wonderful to be back.
Was that really Norma Desmond?
She must be about a million years old.
I hate to think where that puts me. I could be her father.
Oh, I'm sorry, Mr. DeMille.
If you could have seen
Her at seventeen
When all of her dreams were new
Beautiful and strong
Before it all went wrong
She's never known the meaning of surrender
