Let It Flash: Lightning

The thunder rolls high above me tonight,

Not a soul to be seen.

On this plain of devastation,

And I know that I’m it’s Queen

The wind is howling like this raging storm inside,

I couldn’t keep it in

However much I tried

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see,

Be the perfect girl you were meant to be!

Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know

Well now they know!

Let it flash, let it crash!

I won’t hold it back any more!

Let it crash, let it roll!

I’m not their puppet any more!

I don’t care, what they’re going to say,

Let the storm rage on

Rain never bothered me any way,

It’s funny how a storm,

Can make you feel so small,

But the fears that used to scare me,

Can’t find me here at all!

It’s time to see what I can do,

To test my limits and break through,

I was blind but now I see,

I’m me!

Let it flash, let it crash,

I’m one with the clouds and rain,

Let it crash, let it roll,

I’ll never be the same!

Here I stand and here I’ll stay,

I’ll let this storm rage on,

My powers fall from the sky into the my hands,

My soul is flashing with the lightning through the lands,

And one thought strikes me like a stormy blast,

I’m living now and not in my past!

Let it flash, let it crash!

And I’ll rise like the mighty storms,

Let it crash, let it roll

Your puppet is no more!

Here I stand, in a world of storms,

I’ll let it all rage on,

The rain never bothered me any way.

Now I Know: A let it go reprise sung by Anna while Elsa sings let it go

The snow blows white on the mountain tonight,

not a footprint to be seen

It’s a kingdom of isolation,

And me sister says she’s the Queen

She says the wind is howling like a swirling storm inside,

She couldn’t keep it in, no matter how hard she tried,

Conceal, don’t feel, she wouldn’t let me know

Well now I know!

Now I know, now I know

Don’t push me back anymore,

Now I know, now I know

Don’t turn away and slam the door!

I don’t care what they’re going to say,

Let your storm rage on,

Cold never bothered me any way,

Isn’t it funny how some distance

Can make everything seen small,

And the fears that controlled you,

Can’t get to you at all!

It’s time to see what you can do,

Test your limits and break through,

It’s time to be what you can be,

Your free!

Now I know, now I know

Your one with the wind and sky!

Now I know, now I know!

It’s time for you to fly!

Near I stand and near I’ll stay,

Let the storm rage on

Your power flurries through the air into the ground

Your soul is flying like frozen fractals all around!

And your thoughts crystallize like an icy blast,

With me you can come back,

But the past is in the past!

Now I know, now I know,

And you’ll rise like the break of dawn,

Now I know, now I know,

That fake you is gone,

Near I stand and near I’ll stay,

Let the storm rage on,

The cold never bothered me anyway.

Ok. I have some advice of your willing to hear me. Lightning: I think it would flow better if you did ‘let it crash, let it roll,’ every time instead of ‘let it flash, let it crash, let it crash, let it roll.’ . There are some really good lines but the ‘not a soul to be seen,’ makes it sound like she killed everyone to me. There are some other parts I think can be better but I’ll say more when I have more imput

As for let it go reprise: it is a very interesting idea but I think it would be better if it was more if Anna’s thoughts instead of just saying everything Elsa said but using you instead of I. The first verse doesn’t work well because the lines are too long for the music. I also think it would make more sense if it was ‘cold never bothered me much either.’ I realize it wouldn’t rhyme but I think it would be better that way. This is just my two cents. You can take it or leave it ;).

Lol, I agree with the reprise idea, I wrote it last night, so I wasn’t feeling very creative. And for Let it Flash, I don’t know what to put there instead of not a soul to be seen, any ideas?

Thumb image

Ariana

I’ll get back to you on that since I can’t stay long. The last line in the bridge of let it flash is too short in my opinion as well. But I’ll let you know, “let us sew” is patent pended by me, so no stealing it. :)

Let it Flow: Water

The waves crash on on the sand tonight,

Washing footprints all away,

A kingdom of isolation,

And I know that I can’t stay.

The waters roaring like the tempest found in me,

Couldn’t keep it in, however much I plea.

Don’t let this thing inside you show,

Keep it hidden, don’t dare let it go,

Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them see,

Well now they’ve seen!

Let it flow, let it flow,

Can’t hold it back any more,

Let it flow, let it flow,

Water swirls like never before!

I don’t care,

What they want me to be,

Let the waves crash on,

Water never seemed to bother me.

It’s funny how some distance,

Makes everything seem small,

And the fears that seemed to drown me,

Can’t get to me at all!

It’s time to see what I can do,

To test the limits and break through,

It’s time to be what I can be,

I’m free!

Let it flow, let it flow,

I’m one with the wind and rain,

Let it flow, let it flow,

I’ll never be the same!

Here I stand,

And here I’ll stay,

Let the waves crash on.

My powers swirl through the ocean and to the sand,

My soul is spiraling in water droplets through the land,

And one thought condensates like the icy rain,

I’m never going back, to that world of pain!

Let it flow, let it flow,

And I’ll rise like a tidal wave,

Let it flow, let it flow,

I am no longer a slave,

Here I stand,

In the sight of sea,

Let the waves crash on,

Water never seemed to bother me.

How about one of these?

Thunder rolls high above me tonight,

O’r the kingdom where I’ve been,

Oh this plain of devastation,

And I know that I’m the queen.

Or,

Thunder rolls high above me tonight,

And lightning’s in my genes,

On this plain of devastation,

And I know that I’m the queen.

Or,

Thunder rolls high above me tonight,

O’r a depressing kind of scene,

Oh this plain of devastation,

And I fear that I’m its queen.

None of these are perfect but you can decide wether or not to use one.

Let it Glow: Fire

The sun shines bright on the mountain tonight,

Turning snow into flame,

In the kingdom of solitude,

Everyone wants me in chains,

The wind is roaring like this howling flame inside,

Couldn’t keep it in, heaven knows I’ve tried!

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see,

Be the good girl you always have to be,

Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know,

Well now they know!

Let it glow, let it glow,

Can’t hold it back any more,

Let it glow, let it glow,

O’r the entire forest floor!

I don’t care,

What their going to say,

Let the fire burn on,

The heat never bothered me anyway.

It’s funny how some distance,

Makes everything seem small,

And the fears that once consumed me,

Can’t get to me at all!

It’s time to see what I can do,

To test the limits without argue,

With no one near for me to harm,

No alarm!

Let it glow, let it glow,

I’m one with the wind and flame,

Let it glow, let it glow,

I will not play their game!

Here I stand,

And here I’ll stay,

Let the fire burn on.

My power blazes through the air into the ground,

My soul is spiraling in burning embers all around,

And one thought sparks into being like an inferno,

I’m never going back, that is all I know!

Let it glow, let it glow,

I’ll rise like the the break of dawn,

Let it glow, let it glow,

That little girl is gone,

Here I stand,

In the light of day,

Let the fire burn on,

The heat never bothered me anyway!

Let it Blow: Wind

The wind roars around the mountain tonight,

Like a raging animal,

I’m cursed with powers of wind,

That I simply can’t control,

The wind is howling like the tornado inside,

Couldn’t keep it in, however much I tried.

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see,

Be the good girl you always have to be,

Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let it show,

Well now it showed!

Let it blow, let it blow,

Can’t hold it back any more,

Let it blow, let it blow,

Use the to wind to slam the door!

I don’t care,

What their going to say,

Let the wind roar on,

I couldn’t stay there another day.

It’s funny how some distance,

Makes everything seem small,

And the fears that pushed and pulled me,

Can’t get to me at all!

It’s time to see what I can do,

To test the limits and break through,

From my kingdom I now flee,

I’m free!

Let it blow, let it blow,

I’m one with the sky and wind,

Let it blow, let it blow,

Who said powers were a sin!

Here I stand, and here I’ll stay,

Let the wind roar on.

My power sores through the door into the room,

The sound of wind no longer sounds the crack of doom,

And one thought gusts through me like a hurricane,

I’m never going back, I’ll never be the same!

Let it blow, let it blow,

I’ll rise like an updraft,

Let it blow, let it blow,

I’ll learn my handicraft,

Here I stand,

In the light of day,

Let the wind roar on,

See, I can’t stay there another day.

Let it Grow: Plants

The trees grow high in the forest tonight,

Forming a green canopy,

A kingdom of isolation,

And the thrown belongs to me,

Vines are choking trees like they choked my palace walls,

Couldn’t keep it in, it had to grow tall.

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see,

Be the good girl you always have to be,

Conceal, don’t feel, put on a show,

But now they know!

Let it grow, let it grow,

Can’t hold it back any more,

Let it grow, let it grow,

Turn away and slam the door!

I don’t care,

What their going to say,

Let the vines climb high,

The dirt never bothered me anyway.

It’s funny how the trees,

Make everything seem small,

And the fears that seemed to choke me,

Can’t get to me at all!

It’s time to see what I can do,

To test the limits and break through,

Now the truth, no more lies for me,

I’m free!

Let it grow, let it grow,

I’m one with the buds and trees,

Let it grow, let it grow,

Anywhere I please!

Here I stand, and here I’ll stay,

Let the vines climb high.

My powers climb through the soil to the sky,

My soul is reaching up like a sun craving vine,

And one thought takes firm root like a blue pine tree,

I’m never going back, my aloneness makes me free!

Let it grow, let it grow,

I’ll rise like a climbing vine,

Let it grow, let it grow,

I’ll grow plants of every kind!

Here I stand,

In the shade of trees,

Let the vines climb high!

The dirt never seemed to bother me.

Let it Shake: earth

The earth trembles around me tonight,

Something that I’ve often seen,

Through my kingdom of isolation,

And yes, I was the queen.

The wind is roaring like my shaking foundation,

Couldn’t keep it in, had to show the nation!

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see,

Be the good girl you always have to be,

Conceal, don’t feel, you must stand firm,

But now they’ve learned!

Let it shake, let it shake,

Can’t hold it in anymore,

Let it shake, let it shake,

Make rock form a shut door!

I don’t care, what their going to say,

Let the ground shake on,

Rock never bothered me anyway.

It’s funny how an earthquake,

Makes everyone freak out,

When that’s the last thing that scares me,

I know that without a doubt!

It’s time to see what I can do,

To test the limits and break through,

No longer blind, now I can see,

I’m free!

Let it shake, let it shake,

I’m one with the rocks and earth,

Let it shake, let it shake,

I’ve experienced rebirth!

Here I stand, and I will stand firm,

Let the ground shake on.

My powers rumble through the earth, bursting up,

Now I’m alone I let it out, it’s just my luck,

And one thought forms like a sediment rock,

I’m never going back, the doors back home are locked!

Let it shake, let it shake,

I’ll rise like a mountain range,

Let it shake, let it shake,

There’s nothing in my way!

Here I stand, and here I’ll stay,

Let the ground shake on,

Rock never bothered me anyway.

If anyone has any good lines for the first three lines of the bridge I would appreciate hearing them.

Let it Flash: lightning

The lightning flashes above me tonight,

Making everyone fear to stay,

From my kingdom of isolation,

I now run away.

The thunders pounding like this fierce storm locked inside,

Couldn’t keep it in, even though I tried!

Don’t let it out, don’t let them see,

Be the good girl you always have to be,

Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let it show,

Well now they know!

Let it flash, let it crash,

Can’t hold it back any more,

Let it flash, let it crash,

My old life has been torn!

I don’t care, if their afraid of me,

Let the lightning flash on,

Storms never ever frightened me.

It’s funny how a storm,

Makes all of them fear,

While a storm to me is calming

And I always want one near.

It’s time to see what I can do,

To test the limits and break through,

They say I have to keep it in me,

I disagree!

Let it flash, let it crash,

I’m one with the rain and clouds,

Let it flash, let it crash,

I’ll make the thunder loud.

Here I am, and here I’ll stay,

Let the lightning flash on.

My power rumbles through the air into the ground,

My soul is spiraling in sheet like rain all around,

And one thought flashes through me like a bolt of lightning,

I’m never going back, it’s a freedom song I sing!

Let it flash, let it crash,

I’ll rise like an impending storm,

Let it flash, let it crash,

That perfect girl’s no more!

Turning snow into flame,

In the kingdom I’m isolated,

And everyone wants me in chains,

And the fears that pushed and pulled me,

To test the limits and break through,

No longer blind, i now can see,

And one thought gusts through me though the world is shocked,

Let it shake, let it glow,

Here I stand, in the light of day,

Let the earth shake on,

Rock never bothered me anyway.

I know I’m doing what I told you not to do, having each ‘let it ?’ Be different but it really couldn’t be helped. I’m seriously considering changing ‘now they’ve learned!’ To ‘now I’ve learned.’ Please leave thoughts on that and the song in general. Enjoy.

Another version of “Let It Burn”:

The fire glows bright on the mountain tonight,

Not a footprint to be seen.

A kingdom of isolation

And it looks like I’m the queen.

The flames are crackling like this roaring fire inside.

Couldn’t keep it in, even though I’ve tried.

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see,

Be the good girl you always have to be.

Conceal, don’t feel, put on a show,

But now they know!

Let it burn, let it burn

Won’t hold it in any more.

Let it burn, let it burn

Burn the entire forest floor.

I don’t care what he’s got to say.

Let the fire rage on!

The heat never bothered me anyway.

It’s funny how perspective

Makes everything seem small,

And the fears that once controlled me

Can’t get to me at all!

It’s time to see what I can burn,

To test the lessons that I’ve learned!

I have been bound but now I see

I’m free!

Let it burn, let it burn

I am one with the fire and flames

Let it burn, let it burn

I’ve broken every chain! (Or I’ll never be the same)

Here I stand, and here I stay

Let the fire rage on

My power sizzles through the air into the ground

My soul is spiraling in burning embers all around

And one thought flames a cinder like a fiery blast

I’m never going back–

The past is in the past!

Let it burn, let it burn

And I’ll rise past the setting sun

Let it burn, let it burn

That perfect girl is gone! (I would welcome advice here)

Here I stand, in last light of day

Let the fire rage on!

The heat never bothered me anyway.

I know y’all already have something like this, but this is what Clara and I came up with. I would definitely welcome advice on the whole song, especially the marked lines. Thanks!

Let It Go reprise idea:

I stand here alone on this mountain tonight,

There is nothing to be said. (?)

The snow swirls about me,

And my sister has just fled.

She left behind her steps a trail of frigid air.

Can’t see her now, but I know she’s scared.

She shut me out, left me alone.

Shunned her sister, e’en though in her own home.

As the only one to set her free,

I see. (?)

She has gone, disappeared,

But her legacy stayed near.

Snow around, ice beneath,

And her fear has led her here.

But I don’t care what she’s said or done,

Let the flakes fly on.

I know my sister needs me.

It’s funny how three years

Makes all her words seem (I need a one-syllable word that rhymes with far)

And the fear she had to live with,

Has carried her so far

I need to leave, I need to show

To find her, and let her powers go

I’ll help her see all that she’ll be:

So free!

I have come, come to say

That I’m behind you all the way.

Now let’s go, let us throw

All your fears far far away.

I don’t care what you’re going to say.

Let the flakes fly high

Your power swirls through the air for all to see.

I feel so cold, but I won’t let you know you’re hurting me.

And when you try to run it only makes it worse.

Please, Elsa, please come back.

Your fear makes it all worse!

You are all, all I have

And I’ll give myself for you.

You are more than your fears

Your fear is crippling but I knew

Here we stand, together all the way.

Let the flakes fly high!

I knew my sister needed me.

Great songs! I especially like the reprise. For the fire one, I think ‘I’ve broken every chain’ is good. On the other line you said you had trouble with, perhaps ‘my perfect life is done’?

As for the reprise, the ‘e’en though in her own home’ line doesn’t make much sense to me. I just think it could be phrased better. I’m not sure about a word that would rhyme with far that would make sense in the verse but maybe you could do something with ‘scar’? Hope this helps.

Let It Burn:

Reprise:

It’s funny how three years

Heals up my every scar,

And the fear she had to live with

Has carried her so far!

As the only one to set her free

Here’s the entire Reprise again. I wrote it in a Microsoft Word file, and made a few more changes as I did so.

I stand alone on this mountain tonight

There is nothing to be said (Any other word choices? I don’t like said)

The snow swirls about me

And my sister has just fled

She left behind her steps a trail of frigid air

Can’t see her now, but I know she’s scared

She shut me out, left me alone

Shunned her sister, turned back and slammed the door

As the only one to set her free

I see

She has gone, disappeared

But her legacy stayed near

Snow around, ice beneath

And her fear has led her here

I don’t care what she’s said or done

Let the flakes fly high

I know my sister needs me

It’s funny how three years

Heals up my every scar

And the fear she had to live with

Has carried her so far

I need to leave, I need to fly

To find her, and let her power shine

I’ll help her see all she can be

So free

I have come, come to say

That I’m behind you all the way

Now let’s go, let us throw

All your fears far far away

I don’t care what you’re going to say

Let the flakes fly high

Your power swirls through the air for all to see

I feel so cold, but I won’t let you know you’re hurting me

And when you try to run it only makes it worse

Please, Elsa, please come back

Your fear makes it all worse (I would really like help here–This is what I just said two lines ago!)

You are all, all I have

And I’ll give myself for you

You are more than your fear

It is crippling but I know

Here we stand, together all the way

Let the flakes fly high

I knew my sister needed me

I don’t see why. I don’t see anything wrong with ‘said.’ As for the other one, how about,

‘Please, Elsa, please come back,

See that your powers aren’t a curse!’

Anyhow, I have a new parody myself and can really use some help on it. Lady’s and gentlemen I humbly present to you, the one, the only, LET US SEW!!!! ;)

Let Us Sew

It’s the first Friday of the month today,

And to the Anderson’s we all go,

For a sewing day with some friends,

That everyone looks forward to.

It’s time to sew even though some might rather play,

It is our duty to sew so here we stay,

But we don’t mind, we find it fun,

We sew and laugh, yes, every one,

That we enjoy it, people did not know, (?)

But now they know!

Let us sew, let us sew,

Don’t hold us back anymore,

Let us sew, let us sew,

Shut us in and lock the door!

We don’t care,

About Abigail’s arthritis, (no offense, Abigail.)

Let the machines sew on,

The noise never bothered us anyway.

It’s funny how many friends,

Make the work load seem light,

And because we work together,

We don’t get as annoyed as we might,

It’s time to see what we can do,

Straight seams, curved, and zig-zag too,

We sew together all afternoon,

Can’t start too soon!

Let us sew, let us sew,

You couldn’t stop us if you tried,

Let us sew, let us sew,

While singing songs of all kinds!

Here we are,

We will not stop,

Let the machines sew on.

We sew and iron and clip and pin our projects,

????

????

But we certainly won’t quit, until we fill our quota!

Let us sew, let us sew,

When we’re done we’ll take a break,(?)

Let us sew, let us sew,

Until then we won’t stop for goodness sake, (?)

Here we are,

Still sewing strong,

Let the machines sew on,

The noise never bothered us anyway.

Soo, what do you think? And what about all the question marked verses? Please help me out here, I’m stuck.

Sure, no problem. How about:

We sew and iron and clip and pin our projects

We love this so much don’t you ever try to hold us down

And when we’re done we get a few full hours of fun

But we certainly won’t quit, ‘till we fill our quota

Also:

Let us sew, let us sew

We will never take a break

Let us sew, let us sew

We’ll never stop for goodness sake

And about that earlier line:

They never knew that we had fun or something like that.

I like it, though! Great idea!

Ariana

Thanks! Ok, new and IMPROVED version,

Let Us Sew

It’s the first Friday of the month today,

And to the Anderson’s we all go,

For a sewing day with some friends,

That everyone looks forward to.

It’s time to sew even though some might rather play,

It is our duty to sew so here we stay,

But we don’t mind, we find it fun,

We sew and laugh, yes, every one,

That we had fun they didn’t know, (how’s that?)

But now they know!

Let us sew, let us sew,

Don’t hold us back anymore,

Let us sew, let us sew,

Shut us in and lock the door!

We don’t care,

About Abigail’s arthritis,

Let the machines sew on,

The noise never bothered us anyway.

It’s funny how many friends,

Make the work load seem light,

And because we work together,

We don’t get as annoyed as we might,

It’s time to see what we can do,

Straight seams, curved, and zig-zag too,

We sew together all afternoon,

Can’t start too soon!

Let us sew, let us sew,

You couldn’t stop us if you tried,

Let us sew, let us sew,

While singing songs of all kinds!

Here we are,

We will not stop,

Let the machines sew on.

We sew and iron and clip and pin our projects,

We love this so much, don’t ever try to hold us back,

And when we’re done we get some well-earned hours of fun, (I’d prefer something that rhymed but it’s better then nothing, which is what I had.)

But we certainly won’t quit, until we fill our quota!

Let us sew, let us sew,

We will never take a break,

Let us sew, let us sew,

We won’t stop for goodness sake,

Here we are,

Still sewing strong,

Let the machines sew on,

The noise never bothered us anyway.

Great! I love it! Any ideas for another? I’d write one, but you two already covered the basics. Maybe Colleen’s song? But there’s not much to say…

Thumb image

Ariana

Something about invisibility, although I agree you may not get a whole song out of it. But any element or power should work for a song.

Quill small f6d84c854cf2af05c2e20304f4366748df7d394dd272024ef654d0b69ee52ab5

Emily

True. Would a song from a pianist’s point of view be interesting? Or art? Invisibility could work…

Thumb image

Ariana

That could be very interesting. I see no reason to right one about playing the piano. I found one that was about how much this guy was tired of and dislike the song ‘let it go’ that he was making a parody of. So basically, it could be anything.

Quill small f6d84c854cf2af05c2e20304f4366748df7d394dd272024ef654d0b69ee52ab5

Emily

Okay. Here goes:

Silence reigns on the stage tonight,

The audience can’t be seen

A kingdom of dark and silence,

And it looks like I’m the queen.

The quiet sounds to me like waves upon a shore

Nothing I can see, and there’s nothing more

Silence demands that I shall play

And the audience, waiting, so they say (?)

I lift my hands unto the board

Here I go!

Let it show, let it flow,

Weave my music through the air

Let it show, let them know,

How much I truly care (?)

Music reigns, and the silence gone

Let the chords roll on

Music has always been my joy

It’s funny how a stage

Can tremble every limb

And the pieces so perfected

Have lost their brilliant shine

But it’s time to see what I can do

To test my limits and break through

No paper sheets will hold me

I’m free

Let it show, let it flow

Send the music rolling (A one-syllable word rhyming with same)

Let it show, let them know

I’ll never be the same

Here I stand, and here I’ll play

Let the chords roll on

The notes are trilling from the high unto the low

My fingers tremble but I won’t allow them to let go

And every chord awakens flutterings of joy

I never will go back–my hands have gone too far!

Let it show, let it flow,

And I’ll go beyond my fear

Let it show, let them know

That I am staying here!

What I was, I no longer am

Let the chords roll on!

Music will always be my joy.

Wow. That was work. Any suggestions? I would take any!

Thumb image

Ariana

Good job! This is really good. I think the two question marked lines are fine. At least I can’t think of anything better for the first one, which is still fine, and I think the second one is good. But the third and fourth lines of the second verse don’t make sense to me, though that may be just because I am not a pianist. And, how about:

Let it show, let it flow,

Put the silence to shame,

Or

Let it show, let it flow,

Let me make no mistakes to blame,

I personally am partial to the first one, I think it fits the song better, but it’s up to you. Hope this helps.

Quill small f6d84c854cf2af05c2e20304f4366748df7d394dd272024ef654d0b69ee52ab5

Emily

I like those! The first is better. I don’t really like the fourth line of the second verse–and it’s not a pianist thing, really. Only that in that part of the second verse, I’m trying to say that although one can work really hard on a piece, once they reach the stage they get so nervous that the piece doesn’t sound good anymore. Suggestions?

Thumb image

Ariana

Oh. Now I understand. No not really. You could change ‘shine’ to ‘sheen’ to make it rhyme more with ‘limb’ but that’s the best I can come up with.

Quill small f6d84c854cf2af05c2e20304f4366748df7d394dd272024ef654d0b69ee52ab5

Yeah. This one’s a little more interesting… I wish I could hear Hannah’s suggestions.

Quill small f6d84c854cf2af05c2e20304f4366748df7d394dd272024ef654d0b69ee52ab5

Emily

Any other ideas? I really enjoy writing these songs, but the idea part is what I lack right now!

Thumb image

Ariana

Uuuummmm. You could write one abooouuuut, school. Or pick a favorite book/movie and write one on it. I heard somewhere that there was a let it go parody written about lord of the rings. So I’m sure you could do one about pride and prejudice, or the sound of music ,or tangled, or something.

Quill small f6d84c854cf2af05c2e20304f4366748df7d394dd272024ef654d0b69ee52ab5

Oooh, nice. I’ll definitely think about it.

Quill small f6d84c854cf2af05c2e20304f4366748df7d394dd272024ef654d0b69ee52ab5

Emily

All right. It’s Tangled this time.

But I don’t have time to do it now. I’ll work on it later.

Thanks for the idea!

Quill small f6d84c854cf2af05c2e20304f4366748df7d394dd272024ef654d0b69ee52ab5

Emily

One thought about the reprise: Earlier Hannah said that the reprise would be sung while Elsa is singing too. I think that in this case, it would be separate. If they were sung at the same time, then Anna’s lines would have to stagger with Elsa’s, so you would be able to hear what each is singing. Does that make any sense? To me that seems really complicated, so it would be a totally different song.

Thumb image

Ariana

Yes. But if Anna’s lines staggered with Elsa’s, wouldn’t the music have to be longer, or playing the same line twice, or something? Yeah, I think a totally different song would be much easier.

Quill small f6d84c854cf2af05c2e20304f4366748df7d394dd272024ef654d0b69ee52ab5

Emily

Not really. It’s hard to do on paper, but it’s something like this. Anna’s lines are sung after Elsa’s, not at the same time. Sing Elsa’s lines and you might get a sense of Anna’s:

Let it go (Please come back)

Let it go (Elsa please)

Won’t hold it back anymore (Don’t you see I love you)

Let it go (Here all alone)

Let it go (Following you)

Turn away and slam the door (your powers follow you)

Okay, song-wise this is horrible. But does it make more sense? Sorry–this is like the musician’s explanation. I’ll see you Friday; ask me then if you don’t get it now. ;)

Thumb image

Ariana

No not really. I just don’t see how the same line of music with different words can be sung twice without making it two lines of music, even if said lines are identical. We’ll see if you can explain clearer in person.

Quill small f6d84c854cf2af05c2e20304f4366748df7d394dd272024ef654d0b69ee52ab5

Emily

Okay. I did away with the Tangled idea, but I’ve played for awhile with the idea of a religious “Let It Go” version. What do you think?

My world lies in pieces tonight

Nothing beautiful to be seen ?

A kingdom of desolation

And I’ll never be the queen

The wind is howling like the swirling storm inside?

Couldn’t take control, even though I tried

Don’t let Him in, don’t let Him see

Be the good girl they all expect to see

Conceal, don’t feel, put on a show

But He always knows

Let it go, let it go

I won’t control my life any more

Let it go, let it go

Turn it over to the Lord

I don’t care what they’re going to say

Let the storm rage on

I know Who I’m trusting in

It’s funny how perspective

Makes important things seem small

And the fears that once controlled me

Can’t get to me at all

It’s time to see what He can do

I am the vessel He works through

I have been bound but now I see

I’m free

Let it go, let it go

I am one with my Lord on high

Let it go, let it go

With Him I will fly

Here I stand, and here I stay

?

His mercy swirls through me like snowflakes in the air

His grace is like a crashing wave on a seashore

And His appearance is as pure as smelted gold

I’m never going back

To pain and fear untold

Let it go, let it go

And I’ll rise with the Only One

Let it go, let it go

That sinful self is gone

Here I stand, in the purest love

Let the storm rage on

I know Who I’m trusting in

I think it could use some work. But I like the idea. The question-marked lines are things I need help with–especially the blank one in the second chorus.

Thumb image

Ariana

Yeah, this is a great idea! First question marked line, how about ‘No more hope to be seen.’ Next line,

And I’ll never be the queen.

I tried my best to be mistress of my own life,

Couldn’t seize control, ended up with strife, (couldn’t take control? Couldn’t keep control? You could keep the ‘even though I tried’ line, I think it’s better though it doesn’t rhyme as well.)

Here I stand, and here I’ll stay,

I’ll let Him take control. (How’s that?)

One more thing, there is a verse, Isaiah 40:31 that talks about rising on eagles wings. Maybe you could use it instead of ‘with Him I’ll fly.’ Like, ‘On eagles wings I’ll rise.’ Although, to those who haven’t read the bible that may be confusing. All in all, great song!

Here’s the entire religious one again, with changes:

My world lies in pieces tonight

No more hope to be seen

A kingdom of desolation

And I’ll never be the queen

I tried my best to be the ruler of my life

Couldn’t take control, even though I tried

Don’t let Him in, don’t let Him see

Be the good girl they all expect to see

Conceal, don’t feel, put on a show

But He always knows

Let it go, let it go

I won’t control my life any more

Let it go, let it go

Turn it over to the Lord

I don’t care what they’re going to say

Let the storm rage on

I know Who I’m trusting in

It’s funny how perspective

Makes important things seem small

And the fears that once controlled me

Can’t get to me at all

It’s time to see what He can do

I am the vessel He works through

Follow in His steps and I will see

I’m free

Let it go, let it go

I am one with my Lord on high

Let it go, let it go

On eagle’s wings I’ll rise

Here I stand, and here I stay

I’ll give Him control

His mercy swirls through me like snowflakes in the air

I am consumed by His astonishing and pow’rful love

And His appearance is as pure as smelted gold

I’m never going back

To pain and fear untold

Let it go, let it go

And I’ll rise with the Only One

Let it go, let it go

That sinful self is gone

Here I stand, clean and without stain

Let the storm rage on

I know Who I’m trusting in

Let us Glow (light)

The darkness circles around me tonight,

Not a star to be seen,

A kingdom of darkest night,

And I’m glad I’m not the queen.

The wind is howling and I’m finding it hard to see,

Couldn’t keep it in, I can’t stand the dark. (?)

Don’t let it out, leave night time be,

Don’t make the night less dark to see,

Conceal, don’t feel, do not be scared,

Now I don’t care!

Let it glow, let it glow,

Won’t hold it back anymore,

Let it glow, let it glow,

Nothing’s like it was before! (Nothing’s like before?)

I don’t care, what their going to say,

Let my light shine on,

Bright lights never bothered me anyway.

It’s funny how some distance,

Makes everything seem small,

And the fears that once overshadowed me,

Can’t find me here at all.

It’s time to see what I can do,

To test the limits and break through,

Not in the dark I now can see,

I’m free!

Let it glow, let it glow,

I’m one with the moon and sun,

Let it glow, let it glow,

My fearless life’s begun!

Here I stand, and here I’ll stay,

Let my light shine on.

My power shines bright from space down to earth, (?)

My soul is shining; I’ve experienced new birth, (?)

And one thought glows brightly like a twinkling star,

I’m never going back, I’ve come much too far!

Let it glow, let it glow,

I’ll rise like the rising moon,

Let it glow, let it glow,

I cannot start too soon!

Here I stand,

And here I’ll stay,

Let my light shine on,

Bright lights never bothered me anyway.

Ariana

Let it Go (night)

The moon shines bright in the sky tonight,

Everything to be seen,

A kingdom of brightest light,

And I guess that I’m the queen.

The wind is howling and I find it much too bright,

Couldn’t keep it in, I brought the night.

Don’t let it out, keep it hidden,

There is no way that you can win,

Conceal, don’t feel, let day time stay,

Well now I may! (?)

Let it go, let it go,

Can’t hold it back anymore,

Let it go, let it go,

Turn my back and slam the door!

I don’t care,

What their going to say,

Let the night grow on,

The dark never frightened me anyway.

It’s funny how some distance,

Makes everything seem small,

And the fears that seemed to blind me,

Can’t find me here at all!

It’s time to see what I can do,

To test the limits and break through,

No right, no wrong, no rules for me,

I’m free!

Let it go, let it go,

I’m one with the darkest night,

Let it go, let it go,

I’m not too fond of light, (?)

Here I stand,

And here I’ll stay,

Let the night grow on.

My power creeps from deep dark places through the ground, (?)

My soul is flying through pitch black night all around,

And one thought slips through me like the coming night,

I’m never going back, to a life full of ‘mights!’ (?)

Let it go, let it go,

I’ll rise like rising dark, (?)

Let it go, let it go,

I’ll never miss my mark! (?)

Here I stand,

With no light of day,

Let the night grow on,

The dark never frightened me anyway.

Not a star to be seen,

And I’m glad I’m not the queen.

The wind is howling and I find it hard to see,

Couldn’t keep it in, now they all have seen.

Don’t let it out, leave night time be,

Don’t turn night brighter to satisfy just me

Conceal, don’t feel, do not be scared,

But I don’t care!

Let it glow, let it glow,

Won’t hold it back anymore,

Let it glow, let it glow,

Nothing’s like it was before! (I like it)

I don’t care what their going to say,

Let the light shine on,

Bright lights never bothered me anyway.

It’s funny how some distance,

Makes everything seem small,

And the fears that leered upon me, (?)

Can’t find me here at all.

It’s time to see what I can do,

To test the limits and break through,

As it is bright I now can see

I’m free!

Let it glow, let it glow,

I’m one with the moon and sun,

Let it glow, let it glow,

My fearless life’s begun!

Here I stand, and here I’ll stay,

Let my light shine on.

My power shines bright from the stars down to the earth

My soul is shining; I’ve experienced renewing birth! (refreshing?)

And one thought shines out brightly like a twinkling star,

I’m never going back, my life has come too far!

Let it glow, let it glow,

And I’ll rise like the shining moon,

Let it glow, let it glow,

I cannot start too soon!

Here I stand,

In the glist’ning light

Let my light shine on,

Bright lights never bothered me anyway.

So, what’d y’all think?

Let It Flow (writing)

The paper lies blank on my desk this day

To the reader I confide

Possibilities are endless

How can I ever decide

So many choices, what to write, what to ignore

Can’t keep going on, can’t do any more

Put down the story, write the words

They cry for fiction, they cry out and are heard

I can’t conform to what they need

And now I see

Let it flow, let it flow

Don’t follow their lead

Let it flow, let it flow

Plant your own kind of seed (?)

I don’t care what they’re going to say

Let the words roll on

Critics never bothered me anyway.

It’s funny how perspective

Can change a story’s lore

And the guidelines I was under

Don’t affect me any more!

It’s time to see what I can do

To test their limits and break through

Nothing they do will hold me

I’m free!

Let it flow, let it flow

I am one with ink and pen

Let it flow, let it flo

I’ll never look back then (?)

Here I stand and here I stay

Let the words roll on

My soul finds rest in doing what I love to do

My writing weaves words into feelings and emotions too

And one small change makes all the difference in the world

I never will submit to the guidelines they uphold

Let it flow, let it flow

And my talent will expand (?)

Let it flow, let it flow

By the writing of my hand

Here I stand with my head held high

Let the words roll on!

Critics never bothered me anyway.

Wow Emily, I didn’t know you liked to write so much. I think it’s really good. I have only one suggestion, I’m afraid. How about,

Okay, I had to.

Asle’s Song

My identity drowns behind my tonight,

No one must see

A kingdom behind me,

And I don’t want to be queen.

Indecision tearing like a monster inside,

Couldn’t help it,

I had to decide

Don’t let them try

Don’t let them see

Be the strong girl you always have to be,

Hide it, don’t feel, don’t let them win,

Well now they’ve won!

Now It’s done, Now it’s done, A secret know by one,

Now it’s done, now it’s done,

I’m servant to no one,

I don’t care, what they think now,

I’ve done the deed,

It never mattered anyhow.

It’s funny how some danger,

Can quickly change you mind,

And thing I thought I’d never do,

I did just in time!

It’s time to be who I will be,

I’m free!

Now it’s done, now it’s done,

My life’s my own to live!

Now it’s done, now it’s done,

I’ve nothing else to give!

Here I’ve changed, and here I’ll stay.

Let the river roar on,

My power flares from my heart and from my soul,

And sparks are flying like lightning all around!

And one idea comes like a burning brand,

My life is safe now,

from all in the land!

Now it’s done, now it’s done,

And I’ll like a Phoenix rise,

Now it’s done, now it’s done,

A new life before my eyes!

Here I’ve changed, and been made new,

Let the river roar on!

Anyway I prefer solitude.

Not at all. It’s good. I’m taking a leaf out of Emily’s book and copying the whole song with some alterations.

Asle’s Song

My identity burns behind my tonight, (figured fire would be more appropriate.)

Nobody’s allowed to see, (yours was too short for the music.)

A kingdom lies behind me,

And I don’t want to be queen.

Indecision tearing like a monster locked inside,

Couldn’t help it,

I had to decide

Don’t let them try

Don’t let them see

Be the strong girl you always have to be,

Hide it, don’t feel, don’t let them win,

Well now they’ve won!

Now It’s done, Now it’s done,

Now it’s done, now it’s done,

I’m servant to no one,

I don’t care, what they think now,

I’ve done the deed,

It never mattered much anyhow.

It’s funny how some danger,

Can quickly change you mind,

And thing I thought I’d never do,

(What happened to the rest of the verse?!)

It’s time to be who I will be,

Now it’s done, now it’s done,

My life’s my own to live!

Now it’s done, now it’s done,

I’ve nothing else to give!

Here I’ve changed, and here I’ll stay.

Let the river wash on, (washing away identity, old life, etc.)

My power flares from my heart and from my soul,

And sparks are flying like lightning all around!

And one idea comes like a burning brand,

My life is safe now,

from all in the land!

Now it’s done, now it’s done,

And I’ll like a Phoenix rise,

Now it’s done, now it’s done,

My life’s my own to live!

Now it’s done, now it’s done,

I’ve nothing else to give!

Here I’ve changed, and here I’ll stay.

Let the river roar on,

My power flares from my heart and from my soul,

The sparks are flying like lightning to make me whole!

And one idea comes like a burning brand,

My life is safe now,

from all in the land!

Now it’s done, now it’s done,

And I’ll like a Phoenix rise,

Now it’s done, now it’s done,

A new life before my eyes!

Here I’ve changed, and been made new,

Let the river roar on!

Anyway I prefer solitude

I love it, Hannah! I didn’t see a specific spot, but I think that anyone listening will need to know the story to be able to go from “burns”–which feels appropriate–to “drowns”–since water is the exact opposite of what we’re talking about. I get it, but just so you are aware.

And one more thing. The bridge didn’t fit the music…

My power flares out from my heart and from my soul,

The sparks are flying up like lightning that will make me whole!

And great ideas are striking like a burning brand,

My life is safely hid

From all in the land!

Ok, I’ve run out of ‘let it go’ options so I’m moving on.

‘Do you want to watch a movie?’

Do you want to watch a movie?

Come on, we can’t delay,

Movies take some time you know,

Especially the one I chose,

So we must start today!

I know you like this movie,

So why not watch,

Together it would be more fun!

Do you want to watch a movie?

Or maybe a tv show.

Not right now, (name)

Ok, bye.

Do you want to watch a movie?

I’ll even let you pick which one,

We will laugh, and cry, and sigh, (?)

Depending which movie, (?)

Until it is done! (? These three lines are terrible! Please help!!)

It gets a little lonely,

Watching on my own,

So why don’t you stop by?

(Name) Please, you know you want to,

I wish I had your company, (?)

You say not now,

And I’ve been trying to,

Watch movies without you,

But I just can’t.

It’s much more fun together,

Both me and you,

What movie will you choose?

Do you want to watch a movie?

I put (name) in parenthesis for whoever is listening to/singing the song’s names to swapped in. So what do y’all think?

Wouldn’t you please stop by?

I wish that you were here.

Ok, I’m going to be weird and put a non-frozen parody on here. The song is called ‘we are ever getting back together.’ I was thinking about what we were saying on Saturday that any stranger would think we didn’t like each other and turned that into a song.

I remember when we first met,

The first time, (These two lines say the same thing. Help.)

Saying this is it I’ve made a friend,

Cause like, we saw each other every single month,

Sewing. Book club. Science.

What?

Then we come around again and tease,

Lock the door and say you’ve gotta leave,

Trust me,

Remember Abigail and her arthritis?

We say, “Go work, or else,”

Next minute, “your awesome.”

Ooooooooo,

We said good bye again last night,

But ooooooooo,

This time, I’m telling you, I’m telling you,

We are ever ever ever, getting back together,

We are ever ever ever getting back together,

We go rant, tease, insult, each other, everyday,

But we are ever ever ever ever getting back together.

Like, forever,

We couldn’t live without us picking fights,

And some, falling for it saying that we’re right,

There is no hiding to find our peace of mind,

We just laugh it out and move on down the line.

Ooooooooo,

We just talked again today,

But ooooooooo,

This time, I’m telling you, I’m telling you,

We are ever ever ever, getting back together,

We are ever ever ever, getting back together,

We go rant, tease, insult, each other, everyday,

But we are ever ever ever ever getting back together.

We always say, that we are forever ever,

And we always say, never say never,

So some stranger would come up and say, you guys hate each other, and we’d say ‘that’s just how it looks. We are ever getting back together. Like ever. (?)

Noooo,

We are ever ever ever, getting back together,

We are ever ever ever, getting back together,

We go rant, tease, insult, each other, everyday,

But we are ever ever ever ever, getting back together.

We are ever ever ever getting back together

We are ever ever ever getting back together

We go rant, tease, insult, each other, everyday,

But we are ever ever ever ever getting back together

We, ooh, getting back together, ohhh,

We, ooh, getting back together

We go rant, tease, insult, each other, everyday.

But we are ever ever ever ever getting back together.

Line 8 is a reference to how Clara and others would lock the door to those who are late. I was thinking maybe it would be better to have it ‘We are always, always, always gonna be together’ instead of ‘ever ever ever getting back together.’ I think the first one is better personally, but what do y’all think? Any other advise?

The new and improved We’re Forever Getting Back Together

I remember when we met up,

The first time,

Saying this is it I’ve made a friend,

Cause like, we saw each other every single month,

Sewing. Book club. Science. Art.

What?

Then we come around again and tease,

Sayin’, lock the door, so they’ve gotta leave,

Trust me,

Remember arthritis and its effect?

We say, “Go work, or else.”

Next minute, “your awesome.”

Ooooooooo,

We said good bye again last night,

But ooooooooo,

This time, I’m telling you, I’m telling you,

We’re forever ever ever, getting back together,

We’re forever ever ever getting back together,

We go rant and tease, insult each other, everyday,

But we’re forever ever ever ever getting back together.

Like, forever.

We couldn’t live without us picking fights,

And some, falling for it saying that we’re right,

There is no hiding to find our peace of mind,

We just laugh it out and move on down the line.

Ooooooooo,

We talked just once again today,

But ooooooooo, This time, I’m telling you, I’m telling you,

We’re forever ever ever, getting back together,

We’re forever ever ever, getting back together,

We go rant and tease, insult each other, everyday,

But we’re forever ever ever ever getting back together.

We always say, that we are forever ever,

And we always say, never say never.

So they called me up and said, ‘when can we get together’ and I’m like… I mean this is so awesome! We will always get together. Like, forever.

Ooooohhhhhh,

We’re forever ever ever, getting back together,

We’re forever ever ever, getting back together,

We go rant and tease, insult each other, everyday,

But we’re forever ever ever ever, getting back together.

We’re forever ever ever getting back together

We’re forever ever ever getting back together

We go rant and tease, insult each other, everyday,

But we’re forever ever ever ever getting back together

We, ooh, getting back together, ohhh,

We, ooh, getting back together

We go rant and tease, insult each other, everyday.

But we’re forever ever ever ever getting back together.

Comments? It’s really repetitive, and I don’t know if all of it’s true for me, exactly…

Music:

(Adjusted from Britt Nicole’s “Ready or Not”)

I tried to cover my shine

I’ve tried dodgin’ from the light

I, I, I don’t want to hide.

No, not tonight.

True, true, you want me to take my talents

Fit ‘em in your box right

I want you to listen really close right right right now

Ready or not, here here here here I go

I’m about to show you what I’m gifted for whoah-oh

Ready or not, here I go

This is who I am and I won’t hide it

Gonna play it all over the world

For the young, for the old, any boy and girl

Ready or not, here I go

I’m about to play for you my song

I’m not ever sellin’ out

I don’t like livin’ in a box that’s round

Or playing them a piece ‘cause of the way it sounds

It’s gotta resound

True, true, you want me to take my talents

Fit ‘em in your box right

I want you to listen really close right right right now

Ready or not, here here here here I go

I’m about to show you what I’m gifted for whoah-oh

Ready or not, here I go

This is who I am and I won’t hide it

Gonna play it all over the world

For the young, for the old, any boy and girl

Ready or not, here I go

I’m about to play for you my song

I refuse to keep this buried deep inside of me

Yeah, my talents and my love

It’s time to let ‘em shine a bit

‘Cause there’s no point in hidin’ it

It’s most everything I am

The source of greatest joy

And it’s the reason that I stand out

I pledge allegiance to just bein’ me

There’s no more holdin’ it back

I’m showin’ them who I am

‘Cause music’s more than a sound

It’s obsession and renown

And mufflin’ it’s absurd

Ya heard?

Ready or not, here here here here I go

I’m about to show you what I’m gifted for whoah-oh

Ready or not, here I go

This is who I am and I won’t hide it

Gonna play it all over the world

For the young, for the old, any boy and girl

Ready or not, here I go

I’m about to play for you my song

I really like this. It’s good. The only suggestion I can make is try and make ‘hiding it’s absurd’ rhyme with renown and sound. The only thing I can come up with is; ‘if you hide it your a clown’ or ‘don’t hide it from the town/I won’t hide it from the town.’ All the suggestions are rather dorky, especially that first one, but it’s all I could come up with. Otherwise, I like it.

No More Pretending For Me She’s In Love Parody

So Brenna walks by Sapphire and Estrella on her way somewhere and Estrella comments on how odd she’s acting. Sapphire, away in dream land says ‘What? Who?” Estrella says “I’m talking about Brenna that’s who!” Sapphire remembers the She’s in Love song from the Little Mermaid play she and Estrella saw enough times to know the words to all the songs and they all like to sing so she responds as in the play and Estrella catches on, making minor adjustments when possible.

S: What about her?

E: She sure is acting fishy lately.

S: I’ll say! Wandering in circles, like she’s chasing a tail!

E: That girl is up to her neck in something.

S: She’s dizzy and she’s dreamy,

E: Her heads up in the foam,

B: Her eyes have gone all gleamy,

It’s like there’s no one home!

She floats away the days, mopen on the costal shelf.

E: You ask her where she’s going,

She giggles like a fool!

S: She barely sticks a toe in,

Down at the tidal pool.

B: It’s more than just a phase,

Face it! She’s just not herself!

S: Is she ill?

E: Or insane?

B: Is it water on the brain?

What has got her bothered so?

E: It’s the bends!

S: It’s the flu!

B: Gosh, I wish we had a clue!

E: Oh wait!

S: Oh dear!

E: Good grief!

S: It’s clear!

B: She’s in love! She’s in love!

Pounding heart! Ringing bells!

E: Look!

B: I think she’s even wearing brand new shells! (As in a new shell necklace, possibly.)

She’s in love! She’s in love!

Glory be! Lord above!

Got to be she’s in love!

(Their mother enters.) Girls have you noticed anything odd about . . Your sister? (It’s too perfect & they can’t resist.)

S: You mean Brenna? I’ll say!

She asks like she don’t see me,

She doesn’t even speak,

She treats me like tashimi left over from last week,

You see her late at night tossing in her ocean bed.

E: She’s moody as a snapper,

Oblivious as rocks,

You swim right up and tap her,

B: She lays there like a rock!

E: As sure as a dogs bite,

Somethings made her lose her head.

S: She has lost her head.

E: And she sighs and she swoons,

S: And she’s hummin little tunes,

B: even has a sort of glow!

E: What on earth could it be?

B: Any hammerhead could see.

E: That sigh,

S: That glow,

B: That swoon!

Oh no!

She’s in love! She’s in love!

See her hips, how they swish,

Don’t you wonder who’s the lucky sea food dish?

She’s in love! She’s in love!

See her blush! See her grin!

Got to be love she’s in!

S: Brenna and someone,

E: Sitting in a tree,

B: K, i, s, s, i, n, g

Her cheeks could not flush pinker,

It’s clear as h2o,

She’s caught hook, line, and sinker!

E: Crushed out,

S: Switched on,

E: Worked up,

S: Far gone,

E: Knocked down,

S: Hard hit,

E: In deep,

S: That’s it!

B: She’s in love,

She’s in love,

She’s. In. Love!

She’s in love! She’s in love!

Plain to see, No mistake,

Look at those moonbeams in her wake!

Obvious what they must be symptoms of!

She’s in love! She’s in love!

She’s in looooooooooove!

Yeah, yeah!

And Brenna enters the room and both Estrella and Saphire immediately pretend they were doing something else the whole time. 💕😄

This is my Idea

Derek: I can’t believe I’m stuck with her all summer,

       I'll bet she doesn't wrestle, hunt, or box.

Princess: He looks conceited,

Derek: What a total bummer!

Both: If I get lucky I’ll get chicken pox!

Derek: So happy you could come,

Princess: So happy to be here,

Both: How I’d like to run!

Princess: This is not my idea,

Derek: This isn’t my idea,

Both: Of fun.

Queen: The children seem to get along quite nicely,

King: We’ll join our lands if this arrangement clicks.

Queen: My dear King William, that’s my point, precisely.

King: It’s such good parenting,

Queen: And politics.

         So happy we agree,

King: I think we’ve got a deal,

Queen: Derek’s quite a catch!

King: This is my idea,

Queen: This is my idea,

Both: Of a match!

Queen: And such fun!

King: Good heavens child! Don’t dawdle,

     We can't keep Derek waiting!

Princess: I haven’t packed or washed my hair,

            And Father I get sea sick!

Queen: She soon will be arriving,

         Is *that* respect you're showing?

Derek: You make me kiss her hand again,

        I swear I'm gonna be sick!

King: One day Prince Derek will be her intended,

Queen: Splendid!

Derek: We’ve tried all summer but we just can’t lose her,

Princess: Hey fellas, wait up!

Bromley: Quick! Put on some speed!

Derek: When picking teams,

Bromley: or friends,

Derek: I’d never choose her.

Bromley: You’d think she’d take a hint and learn to read!

Princess: This really isn’t fare.

Both: We really couldn’t care.

Princess: Boys, it’s all or none!

            This is not my idea,

Boys: This isn’t my idea,

All: Of fun!

Chorus: Long before they met,

          Derek and Annette,

          We're destined to be wedded,

          But as anyone could see,

          The only point on which they didn't disagree,

          Was that the very thought of summertime

          Was dreaded.

Derek: She’s tries to talk me into playing dress up,

       She's always flirting with the castle guards.

Bromley: I think you really sort of like her, fess up!

Derek: I’d like her better if she’d lose at cards.

       Four sevens and a ten.

Princess: I think I’ve won again.

Boys: Every time she’s won!

Princess: This is my idea,

Boys: This isn’t my idea,

All: Of fun!

Chorus: We need a royal wedding,

          I'd love to be invited,

          At least we'll get a holiday to rest our plows and axes!

          Someday these to will marry,

          Two lands will be united,

          And with some luck their marriage may result in lower taxes!

King: What if Annette doesn’t go for the merger?

Queen: Urge her!

Princess and Derek: For as long as I remember,

                             We've been told we must be wed,

                             Every June until September,

Derek: All their pushing and annoying hints

Princess: I’ve got bruises with their fingerprints,

Derek: I can do much better I am sure.

Princess: He’s so immature!

THE END. The king is Annette’s father and the Queen is Derek’s mother.

No sir! Not me!

Um, the queen also sings the next line too. Also, if there is a ‘both’ line after one of you lines, it’s perfectly alright, actually preferred, if you say the both lines too. For example,

the queen: This is my idea,

both: of a match!

The queen: And such fun. You could say all those in one post.

This starts our with the two of them writing letters home, neither of which are going to be sent.

Ariel: Dearest darlingest Mummsy and Popsicle,

Witch: My dear father,

Both: There’s been some confusion over rooming here at Shiz

Witch: But of course I’ll never complain,

Ariel: But of course I’ll rise above it,

Both: For I know that’s how you’d want me to respond, yes.

There’s been some confusion for you see my roommate is,

Ariel: Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and all together quite impossible to describe,

Witch: Blond.

Ariel: What is this feeling, so sudden and new,

Witch: I felt the moment I laid eyes on you!

Ariel: My pulse is rushing,

Witch: My head is reeling,

Ariel: My face is flushing,

Both: What is this feeling?

      Fervid as a flame,

      Does it have a name?

      Yes!

      Loathing! Unadulterated loathing!

Ariel: For your face,

Witch: Your voice,

Ariel: Your clothing,

Both: Let’s just say,

     I loath it all!

     Every little trait however small,

     Makes my very flesh begin to crawl,

     With simple utter loathing,

     There's a strange exhilaration, 

     In such total detestation,

     It's so pure so strong!

     Though I do admit it came on fast,

     Still I do believe that it can last,

     And I will be loathing loathing you my whole life long!

Students: Dear Arielle you are just too good,

            How do you stand it I don't think I could,

             With someone so disgusticified,

             We just want to tell you,

Cassie: I’m a girl like any other,

Just here because my father,

Thinks that I need further education,

But I do not get on well,

I cannot divide or spell,

But I don’t need that to be a great musician!

Can’t you see me on the stage performing Mozart,

Tickling the ivory till they gleam,

Though my parents much would rather,

Have a daughter who’s an actor,

Way down deep inside I gotta dream!

(Here she enters the study hall and realizes everyone in there has heard her and Evanora starts singing to relieve her embarrassment.)

Evanora: She’s got a dream,

She’s got a dream,

Turns out she’s not as visionless as she seems, (the original idea was the bullies bully her because she’s the only one at collage who doesn’t know where she wants to go with her life.)

Though she’s often getting bullied, (?)

Her dream is hardly sullied, (?)

Both: Like everybody else I’ve/she’s got a dream!

Girl 2: I am self absorbed and shallow, (she really needs a name, but I’ve never given her one)

My school works a fiasco,

And teacher-wise I’m certainly not a favorite,

But despite my little cash,

And my lack of shine in class,

I’ve always longed to be a secret agent!

Can’t you see me in a uniform of leather,

Following a villain down a stream,

Though I’m usually too quiet, (?) (I don’t like these lines. She isn’t quite. If she was she wouldn’t have started singing so easily.)

In this case that’s an asset, (?)

Cuz way down deep inside I’ve got a dream!

Girl 2: I’ve got a dream,

Witch&girl1: She’s got a dream,

Girl 2: I’ve got a dream,

Witch&girl1: She’s got a dream,

Girl 2: And I know one day I’ll crack some evil schemes,

Though I’m unfortunately poor,

I’ll be a spy of great grandeur,

All 3: Like everybody else she’s/I’ve got a dream!

Student 1: I always wanted to quit and be a florist,

Student 2: I am studying interior design,

All: Lucy’s drawings shine, (As in everyone, accepting Arielle and Josey.)

Rosetta’s cooking is sublime!

Luna knits,

Crystal sews,

Colleen’s garden always grows,

Student 3: All I want is to prove unicorns exist! (Again there is an awkward silence and Evanora breaks it)

Evanora: What about you?

Josey: I’m sorry, me?

Evanora: Yeah. What’s your dream?)

Josey: I’ve got dreams like you, no really,

Just much less touchy-feely,

They mainly happen someplace warm and sunny,

On an island that I own,

Tan and rested and alone,

Surrounded by enormous piles of money!

Ariel: I’ve got a dream,

All: She’s got a dream

Ariel: I’ve got a dream,

All: She’s got a dream,

Arielle: All I want from life is to be free,

And with every passing hour,

I’m so glad I left my castle, (only Evanora notices this)

Like all you lovely folks I’ve got a dream!

All: She’s got a dream,

  He's got a dream,

  They got a dream,

  We've got a dream,

Evanora/Ariel: So our differences aren’t really that extreme,

All: We’re one big team!

Student: Call us bookworms,

Student: Odd,

Student: artistic,

Student: And grotesquely optimistic,

All: Cuz way down deep inside we’ve got a dream

           I've got a dream

           I've got a dream

           I've got a dream

           I've got a dream

           I've got a dream

           I've got a dream

           Yes, way down deep inside, I've got a dream

           Yeah! (Then headmistress enters and they all pretend they were studying the whole time.) 

Do you have any ideas about the two lines I don’t like?

Can’t you see me in a uniform of leather,

Following a villain down a stream,

Though I’m never known as quiet,

I’m the best stating a fiat, (a formal authorization or proposition; a decree.)

Cuz way down deep inside I’ve got a dream!

It starts with everyone yelling and screaming and Cassie tries to defend Evanora and says she is her friend and the mob stirrer begins.

Mob stirrer: She’s says this creature is her friend; well, I’ve hunted witches and I’ve seen what they can do.

                A witch will make off with your children,

Mob: (gasp)

Mob stirrer: She’ll come after them in the night.

Cassie: She would never!

Mob stirrer: I say we kill the witch!

Mob: Kill her!

Towns person: We’re not safe until she’s dead,

Towns person: She’ll come stalking us at night,

Towns person: She’ll preform magic experiments on us for her delight,

Towns person: She’ll reek havoc on our village if we let her wander free,

Mob stirrer: So it’s time to take some action, boys,

                    It's time to follow me!

                    Through the mist,   

                    Through the woods,

                    Through the darkness and the shadows,

                    It's a nightmare but it's one exciting ride!

                    Say a prayer then we're there,

                    At the drawbridge of a castle,

                    And there's something truly terrible inside!

                    It's a witch! She's got power,

                    Highly dangerous,

                    Control of fire, storms, and wind for her use,

                    She could take over Rome,

                    But we're not coming home,

                    Till she's dead! Good and dead!

                    So kill the witch!

Cassie: Arielle! I know you and so and so didn’t always get along, but you know she wouldn’t do any of this! We’ve got to do something! Please!

Mob stirrer: We’ll rid the village of this witch! Who’s with me?

Mob: I am! I am! I am!

     Light your torch! Mount your horse!

Mob stirrer: Screw your courage to the sticking place!

Mob: We’re counting on Gaston to lead the way!

               Through a mist, through a wood,

               Where within a haunted castle

               Something's lurking that you don't see ev'ry day!

               It's a witch! One as powerful as an army!

               We won't rest 'til she's good and deceased

               Sally forth! Tally ho!

               Grab your sword! Grab your bow!

               Praise the Lord and here we go!

               We don't like

               What we don't understand

               In fact it scares us

               And this monster is mysterious at least

               Bring your guns!

               Bring your knives!

               Save your children and your wives,

               We'll save our village and our lives!

               We'll kill the witch!

               Kill the witch!

               Kill the witch!

               Kill the witch!

Arielle can finally make herself heard, tells them she’s Annette, shows them a ring or locket or something to prove it, says she knows the witches only weakness and only she can stop her. Knives and bows would be useless, so she persuades them to let her go after Evanora and and Arielle persuades her to come back.

I don’t write because I don’t really have the time nor inclination at this point. Maybe after Speech and Debate is over… but that’s taking a lot of my time right now, it being the middle of tournament season and all. Also, enough things have happened since I did write that I feel kinda out of the loop, y’know? But I glance in every once in a while and see what y’all are doing. Like, every three weeks. ;)

Here is the first parody. Tell me what you think,

When will my life begin

Evanora: Seven AM,

The usual morning line up.

Sneak past the guards,

And head toward the library!

Pull down some books,

And avoid the librarian!

My room again,

And by then,

It’s like seven fifteen!

And so I’ll read the books,

Three or maybe five,

Then to the stable to,

Saddle up for a ride.

Head to my mother’s house

For magic’s surprise,

Just wonder when will my life begin?

Arielle: Soon as I wake,

It’s dresses, and maids, and breakfast,

Literature,

Math, I am sure,

And poise.

Lessons ‘pon lessons,

On how to be a,

Princess.

History,

Diplomacy,

I’m as bored as can be!

After lunch I’ll escape,

Maybe for the stables,

I’ll saddle Lady and,

Flee fast as I’m able,

And then I’ll climb a tree,

Or perhaps read fables,

Stuck in the same place I’ve always been.

And I’ll keep wondering and wondering and wondering and wondering,

When will my life begin?!

Thumb image

Ariana

I guess I’ll post the rest of them.

I wanna be like other girls

Evanora: The life of a princess

From her birth is well-defined

She must humbly serve her country

Play the parts shes been assigned

She guards the hopes of her people

Weak and mighty, rich and poor,

Who could ever ask for more?

Who could ever ask for more?

Arielle: I wanna be like other girls

Climb up a tree like other girls can

Just to be free like other girls

Get to be

To slouch when i sit

To eat a whole cake

Feel the sun on my feet

Get dirty

Act silly

Be anything I want to be

To dance around

In a pair of pants

To run really fast,

Do nothing all day

To eat a whole cake

With frosting

Get crazy

No escorts

No manners

No nursemaids

No worries

No people who think that,

They know me but don’t!

Evanora: No pinchy shoes?

Arielle: (laughs)

Both: I wanna be like other girls

Scrape up my knee like other girls can

Just to be free,

like other girls

Get to be

Evanora: To speak for myself

Arielle: To sleep until 3

Both: Marry someone I’ve met,

who loves me for me

No escorts

No manners

No nursemaids

No worries

No people who think that,

They know me but don’t,

No pinchy shoes!

I wanna be like other girls

Climb up a tree like other girls can

Just to be free like other girls

Get to be!

Ariana

I won’t say I’m in love

Evanora: If there’s a prize for rotten judgement,

My mother’s already won that

No man is worth the aggravation

That’s ancient history,

Been there

Done that

Arielle, Cassie, & Rebekah: Who’d ya think you’re kidding?

He’s the earth and heaven to ya

Try to keep it hidden,

Honey, we can see right through ya!

Evanora: Nooooooo

A,C,R: Girl, ya can’t conceal it

We know how you’re feelin’, who you’re thinking of

Evanora: No chance, no way, I won’t say it, no, no

A, C, R: You swoon, you sigh

Why deny it, uh oh

Evanora: It’s too…cliché

I won’t say I’m in love

Evanora: I told my heart I didn’t need love,

I’m sure it feels good when you start out,

My head is screaming, Get a grip, girl!

“Unless you’re dying to cry your heart out!”

Oooooooh!

A, C, R: You keep on denying

Who you are and how you’re feelin’

Baby, we’re not lying,

Hon’, we saw ya hit the ceiling!

Evanora: Noooooo

A, C, R: Face it like a grown up

When ya gonna own up that ya got, got, got it bad?

Evanora: Whoa

No chance, no way, I won’t say it, no, no

A, C, R: Give up, give in

Cassie: Check the grin, you’re in love!

A, C, R: You’re doing flips, read our lips, you’re in love!

Evanora: You’re way off base

I won’t say it!

Get off my case

I won’t say it!

A, C, R: Girl, don’t be proud,

It’s ok, you’re in love.

(Evanora: Ooooooh

At least out loud

I won’t say I’m in… love). ? I don’t know if this should be in the parody at all. I think it might be out of Evanoras character.

I almost think that after the previous song Arielle, Cassie, and Rebekah start laughing and Evanora responds by asking Arielle how her love life is going and Arielle rises to the challenge and starts singing

There’s something there that wasn’t there before

Arielle: There’s something sweet,

And almost kind,

Evanora: But he was mean, and he was corse, and unrefined? (Teasingly)

Arielle: Well, now he’s dear,

And so unsure,

I wonder why I didn’t see it there before.

Evanora: let me guess

(Singing) You glanced his way,

He thought he saw,

And when you touched you didn’t shudder at his paw, (teasing again)

No it can’t be,

He’ll just ignore,

But then you never looked at him that way before.

Arielle: New and a bit alarming,

Who’d have ever thought that this could be,

True, he is no Prince Charming,

But there’s something in him I simply didn’t see!

Daniel calls for Arielle and she goes out to take a walk with him. The girls head towards a window to spy, only to find the king already there.

King: Well, who’d have thought!

Evanora: Well, bless my soul,

Rebekah: Well who’d have known,

Evanora: Well, who indeed,

And who’d have thought they’d come together on their own!

Rebekah: It’s so peculiar!

Evanora: Let’s wait and see,

A few days more,

There may be something there that wasn’t there before.

(Evanora leaves and the king wanders away lost in thought)

Cassie: You know, I think there’s something there that wasn’t there before.

Rebekah: (laughing) There may be something there that wasn’t there before.

God help the outcasts

Evanora: I don’t know if You can hear me,

Or if You’re even there.

I don’t know if You would listen

To a witch’s prayer.

Yes, I know I’m just an outcast,

I shouldn’t speak to You.

Still, I see Your face and wonder…

Were You once an outcast, too?

God help the outcasts,

Hungry from birth,

Show them the mercy

They don’t find on earth,

God help my people,

We look to You, still.

God help the outcasts,

Or nobody will.

Bully from first book: I ask for wealth

Cassie: I ask for fame

Rebekah: I ask for glory to shine on my name

Arielle: I ask for love I can possess

Everyone/villagers: I ask for God and His angels to bless me!

Evanora: I ask for nothing

I can get by.

But I know so many

Less lucky than I.

Please help my people,

The poor and downtrod.

I thought we all were

The children of God.

God help the outcasts,

Children of God!

Nerissa didn’t want to keep the Kings last name, but she was pregnant, so she didn’t want to go back to her maiden name, so she went to her mother’s maiden name which is Mill, that’s why the king didn’t reconize the name. Oh, and it’s sung by the people who are trying to make the king banish her.

Cruella De’vil

Evanora Mill,

Evanora Mill,

If she doesn’t scare you,

No evil thing will,

To see her is to take a sudden chill!

Evanora, Evanora,

She’s like a spider waiting for the kill,

Look out for Evanora Mill.

At first we thought Evanora was a devil,

But after time had worn away the shock,

We came to realize,

We’ve seen her kind of eyes,

Watching you from underneath a rock!

This vampire bat,

This inhuman beast,

She oughta be locked up,

And never released,

The world was such a wholesome place until,

Evanora, Evanora Mill.

Not one of us

Villagers: Deception

Disgrace

Evil as plain as the scar on her face

Women: Deception

(An outrage!)

Men: Disgrace

(For shame!)

Children: She asked for trouble the moment she came

Villagers: She can’t change her stripes!

Women: Deception

An outrage!

Men: Disgrace

For shame!

Villagers: You know these magical types!

Evil as plain as the scar on her face!

See you later, agitator!

Just leave us alone!

Women: Deception

(An outrage!)

Men: Disgrace

(For shame!)

Villagers:Traitor, go back with your own!

Children: She asked for trouble the moment she came

Villagers: See you later, agitator!

All: Born in grief

Raised in hate

Helpless to defy her fate

Let her run

Let her live

But do not forget

What we cannot forgive

That she is not one of us

She has never been one of us

She is not part of us

Not our kind

Someone once lied to us

Now we’re not so blind

For we knew she would do what she’s done

And we know that she’ll never be one of us

She is not one of us!

Have any idea of who lied to them? I think maybe the king spread the story of him being enchanted by a witch before he was able to shake it off and go back to his one true love the queen farther than just the queen, but that would just be a witch lying to the king not to them so I don’t know. Ideas?

This is a song that I really like, for all its so sad. If you think it doesn’t fit then please say so. At the moment I think, this takes place after Evanora’s banishment and after a fight with her father, and she’s feeling betrayed and lonely, and Evanora really is feeling that too, but she’s also feeling lost, not at all sure what she’s going to do with her life afterwards. That’s my idea, if you don’t like it please tell me.

Wherever you are

Arielle: Come out, moon…

Come out, wishing star…

Come out, come out…

Wherever you are.

I’m out here in the dark,

All alone and wide awake.

Come and find me.

I’m empty and I’m cold,

And my heart’s about to break,

Come and find me!

I need you to come here and find me,

Cause without you, I’m totally lost.

I’ve hung a wish, on every star.

It hasn’t done much good so far…

Both: I can only dream of you…

Wherever you are.

Evanora: I’ll hear you laugh,

I’ll see you smile,

I’ll be with you…

Just for a while…

But when the morning comes,

And the sun begins to rise,

I will lose you.

Because it’s just a dream,

When I open up my eyes,

I will lose you!

I used to believe in forever,

But forever is to good to be true.

I’ve made a wish, on every star.

It hasn’t done much good so far…

I don’t know what else to do…

Except to try to dream of you…

Arielle: And wonder, if you are dreaming too…

Wherever you are.

Both: Wherever you are…

Savages

Captain: What can you expect,

From filthy little witches?

Their whole disgusting race is like a curse.

They grip people with dread,

They’re only good when dead,

They’re vermin as I said and worse!

Soldiers: They’re savages, savages,

Barely even human,

Savages, savages,

Captain: Drive them from our land,

They’re not like you and me,

Which means they must be evil,

We must sound the drums of war!

Soldiers: They’re savages, savages,

Sneaky, creepy, witches,

Now we sound the drums of war.

Nerissa: This is what we feared,

The ‘normal’ ones a demon,

The only thing they feel at all is greed.

Another Enchantress: Beneath the smiling facade,

There’s emptiness inside,

Both: I wonder if they even bleed!

All magic people: They’re savages, savages,

Barely even human,

Savages, savages,

Nerissa: Killers at the core,

AE: They’re different from us,

Which means they can’t be trusted.

Nerissa: This will be the morning,

Bring out the prisoner.

Magic people: We will see their kingdoms fall,

Evanora: I don’t know what I can do,

But still I know I’ve got to try.

Soldiers: Now we make them pay.

Evanora: Broom, come help my feet to fly.

Magic people: Now without a warning.

Evanora: For Arielle’s sake I must be brave.

Magic people: Time to prove they were right to fear us,

Evanora: Jesus Christ, Lord on high, (Do you think this is terribly sacrilegious of me? It’s better than the original line)

All: It’s them or us!

Evanora: Please don’t let it be too late!

All: They’re just a bunch of sneaky, lying,

Magics: Savages

Soldiers: Savages

Magics: Wicked,

Soldiers: Witches,

All: Destroy their evil race,

Until there’s not a trace left!

Evanora: How loud our the drums of war?

All: Now we sound the drums of war,

Now we sound the drums of war,

I don’t know when exactly this song occurs. Cassie and Rebekah sing it to Arielle’s and Evanora’s boyfriends at some point.

How does she know?

Cassie: How does she know you love her?

How does she know she’s yours?

Rebekah: How does she know that you love her?

Cassie: How do you show her you love her?

Both: How does she know that you really, really, truly love her?

How does she know that you love her?

How do you show her you love her?

How does she know that you really, really, truly love her?

Cassie: It’s not enough to take the one you love for granted

You must remind her or she’ll be inclined to say

How do I know he loves me?

How do I know he’s mine?

Well, does he leave a little note to tell you,

You are on his mind?

Send you yellow flowers when the sky is gray?

Hey

He’ll find a new way to show you

A little bit everyday

That’s how you know

That’s how you know he is your love

Rebekah: You got to show her you need her

Don’t treat her like a mind reader

Each day do something to lead her

To believe you love her

Cassie: Everybody wants to live happily ever after

Everybody wants to know their true love is true

How do you know he loves you?

How do you know he’s yours?

Well, does he take you out dancing

Just so he can hold you close?

Dedicate a song with words

Meant just for you?

Ooh

Both: He’ll find his own way to tell you

With the little things he’ll do

That’s how you know

That’s how you know

Cassie: He’s your love

He’s your love

That’s how you know he loves you

That’s how you know it’s true

Because he’ll wear your favorite color

Just so he can match your eyes

Plan a private picnic

By the fire’s glow

Ohh

Both: His heart will be yours forever

Something everyday will show

That’s how you know

That’s how you know

That’s how you know

That’s how you know

That’s how you know

That’s how you know

Cassie: He’s your love

Rebekah: That’s how she knows that you love her

That’s how you show her you love her

Cassie: That’s how you know

Rebekah: You’ve got to show her you need her

Don’t treat her like a mind reader

Cassie: That’s how you know

Rebekah: That’s how she knows that you love her

That’s how you know that you love her

It’s not enough to take the one you love for granted

Cassie: He’s your love!

I said I would post them all, and technically, I’m missing one. Arielle’s and Evanora’s official good bye with ‘For Good’ from Wicked. I didn’t post it because it is not really a parody. I figure, we can just use the original lyrics.

Of course.

([Evanora] I’m limited.

Just look at me.

I’m limited.

And just look at you.

You can do all I couldn’t do.

Arielle…

So now it’s up to you,

For both of us.

Now it’s up to you.) This is all optional to be taken out if needed. Opinion?

[Arielle)

I’ve heard it said,

That people come into our lives

For a reason

Bringing something we must learn.

And we are led to those

Who help us most to grow if we let them.

And we help them in return.

Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true

But I know I’m who I am today

Because I knew you.

Like a comet pulled from orbit

As it passes a sun,

Like a stream that meets a boulder

Halfway through the wood.

Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better

But because I knew you.

I have been changed for good.

[Evanora)

It well may be

That we will never meet again

In this lifetime.

So, let me say before we part:

So much of me

Is made of what I learned from you.

You’ll be with me

Like a handprint on my heart.

And now whatever way our stories end

I know you have rewritten mine

By being my friend.

Like a ship blown from it’s mooring

By a wind off the sea.

Like a seed dropped by a skybird

In a distant wood.

Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better

But because I knew you…

[Arielle) Because I knew you…

[Both:] I have been changed for good.

[Evanora) And just to clear the air

I ask forgiveness

For the things I’ve done,

You blame me for.

[Arielle) But then I guess,

We know there’s blame to share.

[Both:] And none of it seems to matter anymore.

Arielle: Like a comet pulled from orbit

Evanora: (Like a ship blown from it’s mooring)

Arielle: As it passes a sun.

Evanora: (By a wind off the sea)

Arielle: Like a stream that meets a boulder

Evanora: (Like a seed dropped by bird)

Arielle: Halfway through the wood.

Evanora: (In the wood)

Both: Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better.

I do believe I have been changed for the better.

[Arielle) And because I knew you…

[Evanora) Because I knew you…

[Both:] Because I knew you

I have been changed…

For good.

What do you think of the rest of the songs? And do you think I’m being sacraligious in the ‘savages’ song?

I like them!

No, not really.

Good. I guess we start with the ‘when will my life begin’ song?

There is a song (Wherever you are) between now and when Arielle goes to Narissa looking for Evanora. Just so you don’t forget. Although, if you think the song doesn’t fit, we could skip it.

I’m setting up for it now.

In Savages, it says that we should break to tell Evanora. How do we do that?

I thought that Chris witnessed the soldiers marching off to war and find and tell Evanora what was going on. So it would be some story in the middle of the song. But we’re not to that part yet.

Btw, Savages talks about ‘dealing with the prisoner’ which would be Arielle. When the king set out with his army, he was basically declaring war on magics, so that would make Arielle a prisoner of war. My question is, what do they mean by dealing with her? Is it like an age old custom that all war prisoners are killed? Or do they think she was a spy and decide to kill her for that? Or does it mean something else entirely?

No idea. I would guess something else, like they have to take her somewhere where she couldn’t be as easily taken?

Also, I am totally lost as to where in the song we are. Help?

The soldiers sing ‘they’re savages, savages/sneaky creepy witches/now we sound the drums of war.’ Then I thought Nerissa and another witch could be spying on them through a scrying pool or something and we go to their part in the song.

Okay. I only have time for these two posts.

Thought I posted this earlier, what does AE mean?

Another Enchantress. So Jadzia would have the AE lines. Sry about that.

King: I wish you could see me now

I wish I could show you how

I’m not who I was

Nerissa: I used to be mad at you

A little on the hurt side too

But I’m not who I was

I found my way around

To forgiving you some time ago

King: But I never got to tell you so

I found us in a photograph

I saw me and I had to laugh

You know, I’m not who I was

Nerissa: You were there, you were right above me

And I wonder if you ever loved me

Just for who I was

Both: When the pain came back again

Like a bitter friend it was all that I could do

To keep myself from blaming you

Nerissa: I reckon it’s a funny thing

I figured out I can sing

Now I’m not who I was

King: I write about love and such

Maybe ‘cause I want it so much

I’m not who I was

Nerissa: I was thinking maybe I

I should let you know that I am not the same

Both: But I never did forget your name, hello

Evanora: Well the thing I find most amazing

In amazing grace is the chance to give it out

Arielle: Maybe that’s what love is all about

Both: I wish you could see me now

I wish I could show you how

I’m not who I was

This is what I have for who sings what. I’m not sure where the photograph comes from but other than that I think the words go well.

Maybe in, “In an old painting”? Maybe?

Hmm. Maybe the photograph is in a locket one of them kept and it’s a small enough painting to still call it photograph? Idk

I think the king should have it. Nerissa gave Evanora the bracelet, and I can’t see her keeping, or at least not wearing, jewelry with him in it. Btw, do you mind me adding Evanora and Arielle in there?

Let It Go reprise idea:

I stand here alone on this mountain tonight,

There is nothing to be said. (?)

The snow swirls about me,

And my sister has just fled.

She left behind her steps a trail of frigid air.

Can’t see her now, but I know she’s scared.

She shut me out, left me alone.

Shunned her sister, e’en though in her own home.

As the only one to set her free,

I see. (?)

She has gone, disappeared,

But her legacy stayed near.

Snow around, ice beneath,

And her fear has led her here.

But I don’t care what she’s said or done,

Let the flakes fly on.

I know my sister needs me.

It’s funny how three years

Makes all her words seem (I need a one-syllable word that rhymes with far)

And the fear she had to live with,

Has carried her so far

I need to leave, I need to show

To find her, and let her powers go

I’ll help her see all that she’ll be:

So free!

I have come, come to say

That I’m behind you all the way.

Now let’s go, let us throw

All your fears far far away.

I don’t care what you’re going to say.

Let the flakes fly high

Your power swirls through the air for all to see.

I feel so cold, but I won’t let you know you’re hurting me.

And when you try to run you only make it worse. (this one’s tweaked)

Please, Elsa, please come back.

Stop challenging the curse! (this one’s new)

You are all, all I have

And I’ll give myself for you.

You are more than your fears

Your fear is crippling but I knew

Here we stand, together all the way.

Let the flakes fly high!

I knew my sister needed me.

Thoughts on the revised reprise? The two marked lines are the only ones I changed.
