Lyrics

PROLOGUE LOSS INTO LIFE & DEATH

 

I am standing on the seashore. A ship

spreads her white sails to the morning

breeze and starts for the ocean. I stand

watching her until she fades on the 

horizon. And someone at my side says; 

“she is gone.” Gone where? The loss of

sight is in me, not in her. Just at the

moment when someone says, “She is

gone", there are others who are watching

her coming. Other voices take up the

glad  shout, "Here she comes!"

 

And that is dying.

 

MARY

I need an answer

I need a sign

I need to know if

I’m wasting my time

 

DEBBIE

Please tell me now 

I have regrets 

It's a matter of 

Life and death

 

CHRISTINA

I need to know 

If she still feels the pain

I need to know 

If she still feels the same

 

MARY

I’ll wait all night

 

CHRISTINA

I’ll hold my breath

 

MARY, CHRISTINA, DEBBIE

Cause, it's a matter of life and death 

 

DEBBIE

Oh, oh, a oh,

 

DEBBIE, MARY, CHRISTINA

Life and death 

We're all lost souls 

With dreams we can't forget 

 

Life and death

And we ain't leaving 

Until our needs are met

 

MARY

Last time I saw him is 

Just a memory

 

CHRISTINA

Do I have to die?

For her to talk to me

 

 

DEBBIE

I need a vision 

I need to see

 

MARY

My life is locked 

And he holds the key

 

CHRISTINA

I have my faith 

And I still believe

But it'd be nice

Just to take a peek

 

DEBBIE, MARY, CHRISTINA

The stakes are high 

We’ll place our bets 

Cause it's a matter of 

Life and death

 

DEBBIE

Oh, oh, a oh

 

DEBBIE, MARY, CHRISTINA

Life and death 

We're all lost souls 

With dreams we can't forget  

 

Life and death 

And we ain't leaving 

Until our needs are met

 

[Tempo slows down]

 

MARY

Life goes on without him 

It doesn't skip a beat

 

DEBBIE, MARY, CHRISTINA

We always think about them

Will we be strangers when we meet? 

 

We're not looking for 

The meaning of life 

 

We just want one more chance

To say hello 

Before we say goodbye 

Good-bye

 

[Spoken]

 

JASON

I can help everyone with my gift of  

communicating with the spirit world everyone except myself.

 

DEBBIE

My mother gave me everything I

could ever want. I wasn’t able to

do the same thing for her…I

miss her every day.

 

CHRISTINA

My daughter Ana committed

suicide when she was twenty-three

and I never saw it coming.

 

MARY

My son Eddie died thirty years

ago and it still feels  like yesterday.

Now as I approach the end of my

own life, I wonder…what happens

next?

 

DEBBIE, MARY, CHRISTINA

Life and death 

We're all lost souls

With dreams we can't forget

 

Life and death

Can't help believing

That it ain't over yet

 

Life and…

Death, death, death

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

GOODBYE

 

MARY

He had his father's smile

He had his sister's heart

He was the family jewel

Now he's the missing part

 

And though he's disappeared 

It's not without a trace 

The home where he once lived 

Is now our resting place 

 

No matter how hard we try

No matter how much we cry

We can't find a way…to say

 Goodbye

 

CHRISTINA

She had her father's eyes

 

She liked to be alone

She had her family's love

She had a mind of her own

 

And though I’ve kept my faith 

She never had a prayer 

She won't be coming back 

But was she ever here? 

 

No matter how hard we try 

No matter how much we cry 

We can't find a way…to say 

Goodbye

 

DEBBIE

When your spirit 

Has been broken 

And your backs 

Against the wall 

 

Do they hear us?

Have they spoken? 

Will they catch us? 

When we fall

 

MARY/CHRISTINA

We have our husband's love 

We watch as others glow 

We wish the best of luck 

But they will never know

 

MARY, CHRISTINA & DEBBIE

Because our life's on hold

The love we used to give 

Is bottled up inside 

While we pretend to live

 

MARY, CHRISTINA, DEBBIE 

No matter how hard we try

No matter how much we cry 

We can't find a way…to say

 

MARY

Goodbye

 

CHRISTINA

Goodbye

 

DEBBIE

[Spoken]

I never even had the chance to say...

 

DEBBIE

Goodbye

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

NINETEEN

 

EDDIE

I never really fell in love 

But I had the Beatles 

I didn't get to play the field 

But I could play guitar 

 

I never got to the see the world

But I’ve met its maker 

I never got to sing my song 

Wish she could hear me now

 

I'm nineteen

I am nineteen

I was nineteen

When I died

 

Forever you will see me

Forever in your mind 

I'll be forever

Nineteen

 

I know it really makes you sad

You never saw me married

You know it makes me glad 

I'll never see you die

 

The world has a funny way 

Of keeping things in balance 

You'll never have control 

And that's the reason why

 

I'm nineteen 

I am nineteen 

I was nineteen

When I died

 

Forever you will see me

Forever in your mind

I’ll be forever 

Nineteen

 

Oh I’m going to catch your tears

And shower you with rainbows 

And as each one appears

The clouds will drift away

 

EDDIE

[SPOKEN]

I wasn't the only person who died

that day.  I know I took my mom

with me, but it was my time to

go, not her’s.  She still has a lifetime ahead of her even though

mine lasted till…

 

Forever you will see me

Forever in your mind

I’ll be forever

 

Nineteen

Nineteen 

 

Forever

 

Nineteen

TAKE MY LIFE

 

ANA

Soccer trophies on my shelf 

High school photos like everyone else 

There's gotta be a thousand girls like me 

But what I am is not what you see 

 

I love my mom and I miss my dad 

I wish my life didn't turn out so bad 

Given the chance to live it over again 

I'd take a pass 'cause I know how it ends

 

And I don't hear what you're saying 

When you say it's gonna be all right

And I don't like when you're praying

Cause you're praying keeps me up at night

 

And I don't think I can make it 

This sadness taking over me 

Like a snow globe when you shake it

The snow makes it hard to see

 

Take my life

Cause I don't need it anymore

 

Take my time

But use it in a better way

 

Take my chance

I never had the courage to

 

Take it all 

Take it all away from me

 

HEREAFTER CHOIR #3

Do you always say what's on your mind? 

Take a look at what you've left behind

 

HEREAFTER CHOIR #1

Take a look girl

 

ANA

Don't have to look  

It’s right in front of me 

When I close my eyes  

She's all that I see 

 

I know it doesn't make any sense

 

HEREAFTER CHOIR #2

She’s so crazy

 

ANA

But the time had come  

To get off the fence 

I'm still hurting 

And I always will

 

HEREAFTER CHOIR #3

You always will

 

ANA

It'll take some time 

But I got time to kill

 

And I don't hear what you're saying 

When you say it's gonna be all right 

And I don't like when you're praying

Cause your praying keeps me up at night

 

And I don't think I can make it 

This sadness taking over me 

Like a snow globe when you shake it

The snow makes it hard to see

 

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

 

Take my life 

Cause I don't need it anymore 

 

Take my time

But use it in a better way

 

Take my chance

I never had the courage to 

 

Take it all

Take it all away from me

 

HEREAFTER CHOIR #1 & #2

La, da, da, da, da, da, da

 

HEREAFTER CHOIR #3

Live your life

 

ANA

Take it all away

 

HEREAFTER CHOIR #1 & #2

La, da, da, da, da, da, da

 

HEREAFTER CHOIR #3

Live your life

 

ANA

Take my life 

Take my life 

Take my life 

Take my life 

Take my life 

Take my life 

Take my life

LARGER THAN LIFE

 

ANITA

When they'd see me on the big screen

People thought I had it made 

They'd see my name in lights 

And all those Hollywood nights 

But they never saw the price I paid

 

I spent my life making movies 

They called me the queen of the Bee's

I went on studio dates 

To make my costars look straight

 But none of that was really me

 

[Tempo picks up]

 

My movies didn't make much money

At least while I was alive 

It took a fatal flight 

On a rainy night 

For me to say that I’ve finally arrived 

 

Now they package me like Coca Cola 

They play my bio on A&E 

I'm on slot machines

And they sell me to teens 

God the irony is killing me

 

That's the way it goes 

For everybody here 

As the legend grows 

We start to disappear 

 

It's a twist of fate

And something you can't fight 

Sometimes you have to die 

To be larger than 

 

Life, life, life 

Larger than 

Life, life, life 

 

Larger than

 

ANITA

[SPOKEN]

 “Larger Than Life” ended up being

my favorite film. And they gave me

quite the send off by having me

buried at Hollywood memorial

park cemetery. Now if you don't 

know…it's only the most

star-studded cemetery in the

world!  People travel far and wide

just to see me [beat] dead!

 

ANITA & THE HEREAFTER CHOIR

Now we're all dearly departed 

Legends each in our own way 

Every moment is measured 

Every story is treasured 

They think about us every day 

 

It's funny how death becomes you

And elevates you in their eyes 

 

We're all frozen in time 

And on everyone's mind 

And all we had to do was die

 

ANITA

That's the way it goes

 

EDDIE/ANA

That's the way it goes

 

ANITA

For everybody here

 

EDDIE/ANA

For everybody here

 

ANITA

As the legend grows

 

EDDIE/ANA

As the legend grows

 

ANITA

We start to disappear

 

EDDIE/ANA

We start to disappear

 

ANITA, EDDIE, ANA, & THE HEREAFTER CHOIR

It's a twist of fate

And something you can't fight

Sometimes you have to die 

To be larger than  

 

Life, life, life

Larger than

Life, life, life

Larger than 

 

[Tempo slows down]

 

ANITA

I'll always be Annie Myron 

I'll always be the age of five 

Singing in my room 

And wishing on the moon

 

That some day I'll be larger than life 

God I pray I'll be larger than life 

Look at me 

 

I'm larger than life

 

 

LOST

 

DEBBIE

Look at me my life is great 

What you see is what you made 

Everything I have 

Is all because of you 

 

We were partners in crime 

What was yours was what was mine 

We shared a single life 

Till I was twenty two 

 

I can never pay you back 

For the patience that I lacked 

Will you take the time

To meet me when I come 

 

I keep waiting for the sign 

I would give up all that's mine 

When you add it up 

I've lost more than I’ve won 

 

I knew that I’d settle down 

With my soul mate I’d be found 

I would build a life 

And you could live with me 

 

But my timing was all wrong 

Cause my journey took too long 

So instead I’m living 

With your memory 

 

Like a ship that's been tossed 

Like a windshield thick with frost 

Your loss makes it hard 

For me to find my way 

 

I’ll go on with my life 

As a mother and a wife 

But as a daughter 

I will never be the same 

 

Like a prayer for your return 

Every year the candle burns 

When it flickers 

Does it mean that you are here?

 

 Though the distance may be wide 

I have time on my side 

Cause each year that passes 

Only brings you near  

 

And now dying 

Is not something that I fear

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

THE TOE TAG TANGO

 

SYPIE

I may be dead and buried 

And turning shades of blue 

And though I’m six feet deep 

And I no longer breathe 

I'm right in front of you

 

Cause I still have my dance card

With a few punches left 

Just watch me work my hips 

That I had two times fixed

I really was the best

 

Oh I used to be quite the dancer 

When tango was all the rage 

But now there's no one to dance with 

I'm all alone on this stage

 

I wait

And wait

And wait and wait and wait 

 

I do the toe tag tango 

I click my heels on the floor 

But nobody hears me

I'm so easy to ignore

 

That's why I’m dancing solo 

Though I get in my own way 

Cause it takes two to tango

Maybe today will be the day

 

I was always the life of the party

Now I don't stand a ghost of a chance

I watch life go on all around me 

Why won't somebody ask me to dance?

 

ANITA, EDDIE AND ANA

You're dead

 

SYPIE

I'm dead I'm really, really…

 

ANITA, EDDIE AND ANA

Really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really…

 

SYPIE 

[SPOKEN]

All right already!!! I get it!

 

ANITA

Dead

 

SYPIE 

Doing the toe tag tango 

I stomp my feet on the floor 

But nobody answers 

I'm so easy to ignore

 

I tripped the light fantastic 

When I was still alive 

But now my trip is over 

You can say that I’ve arrived

 

I've tangoed in Paris 

I've samba'd in Brazil 

I've even limbo'd 

Now limbos where I live

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

SOMEDAY

 

ANITA

Someday

Between heaven and earth

We will all meet there

 

 Someday 

Between that time and your birth

It will all be clear 

 

It's waiting right above me

Just close your eyes

In a blink and you'll be there 

It's real, not fake believe me,

While your heads in the clouds  

You'll hop on you'll hop off  

It never stops

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

HOW WILL SHE REMEMBER ME?

 

SYPIE

How will she see me? 

When I can't see myself 

Was I the best I could be? 

Or was I someone else

 

EDDIE

With a single word 

I could ease her mind 

She is getting old 

And I’m just wasting time

 

ANA

I wonder what she is thinking 

What memory does she hold dear? 

A lifetime in just one sentence

 

SYPIE, EDDIE, ANA

We have to make a choice 

Should we reveal ourselves? 

And will it mean the difference 

Between heaven and hell

 

How will she remember me? 

How will she remember me?

 

SYPIE

Did I leave my mark?

 

ANA

Did my memories fade?

 

EDDIE

If she saw me now

 

SYPIE

I wonder what she'd say

 

DEBBIE

God I really miss her smile

 

MARY

I would travel far and wide

Just to hear his voice

 

CHRISTINA

Just to feel her touch

 

SYPIE

Will they have regrets? 

I wonder just how much

 

SYPIE, EDDIE, ANA

She will remember me

 

CHRISTINA

When I close my eyes 

I pretend to sleep

If I stay up all night 

Maybe my soul will keep

 

DEBBIE

Cause when the day is done 

It's just a memory

When my race is run 

Who'll be in front of me?

 

MARY

Now the days are shrinking 

Blink and they disappear 

What will be my last impression?

 

DEBBIE

Is it the way I looked? 

On my wedding day

 

MARY

Is it those old expressions? 

That I used to say?

 

CHRISTINA

Is it that inside joke

That we used to share?

 

SYPIE, EDDIE, ANA

What will be left of me? 

When I’m no longer here

 

SYPIE, EDDIE, ANA

How will she remember me?

 

MARY, DEBBIE, CHRISTINA

How will we remember?

 

SYPIE, EDDIE, ANA

How will she remember me?

 

MARY, DEBBIE, CHRISTINA

How will we remember?

 

SYPIE

Did I leave my mark?

 

ANA

Did my memories fade?

 

EDDIE

If she saw me now

SPACE AND TIME

 

JASON

Anita and I

Shared a space and time

That'll never happen again

 

I go back

To when the world was mine 

And start remembering when  

 

We used to laugh 

We used to sing 

We couldn't wait

For what tomorrow would bring

 

JASON

Since she's been gone

Time marches on

To its eventual end

And I will never see her again

 

ANITA

Jason and I 

Shared the love of all time

It’s sad to see him this way

 

Oh I wish that I

Could throw him a line

There's so much I want to say

 

You have my heart

You have my soul 

Though we're apart 

You're never alone

 

Time can't erase 

And never replace 

What happened way back when

And I can't wait to see you again

 

JASON

I gotta know

If I should just break through 

And see what's on the other side 

 

Or sit tight

And do what I always do 

And watch life pass me by

 

ANITA

When two souls untwine

They can never be lost

We'll find each other again 

And again, and again, and again 

 

I might be standing

Right before your eyes

I might show up in the end  

 

Oh I’ll wait for you

You'll wait for me

It's just a matter of time

 

We’ll have our date

 

JASON

I'm losing faith

 

ANITA

And I can't wait

To see you again

 

JASON

I'll never see her again

 

ANITA/JASON

And I can't wait

To see you again

EDDIE, ANA, SYPIE, ANITA

When we died

 

Waiting I am waiting 

For the moment 

To break free  

 

But am I going? 

Or am I coming? 

I keep on running

But never leave

 

I can make the wind

Blow through her hair

I can make the frost

Just disappear

 

I can make time stop

If only for me

 

But I can never

Take away her pain 

I can only  

Seem to make it rain

 

Because the easiest thing I do

Is make her cry out of the blue

 

MARY, CHRISTINA, DEBBIE, JASON

I am waiting

For an answer

 

To a question

That I forgot

 

What did I think?

Would really happen

Who am I kidding?

I've lost the plot

 

I want all the

Christmas' I’ve missed

Granted all the wishes

I have wished

 

I would like the world to stop

So I can get back on

 

I just want to

Let go of this pain

Long enough to

See her once again

 

Because the hardest thing I do

Is spend each day without you

 

EVERYONE

I want laughter

I want good times

I want lang syne

I want me

 

Til then I'm waiting

 

HEREAFTER CHOIR 

Waiting

When we died

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

THAT'S MY LIFE

 

SYPIE

From the moment that I died

When my spirit first awoke

I heard a thousand voices 

But no one ever spoke 

 

I saw faces I remembered

From a time so far away

As I relived my whole life 

In a single day 

 

I was one of seven children

My life started in New York

From an old world Jewish family 

If these walls could only talk 

 

Me and my best friend Shooky

We were gonna do it all

But we had to get through Brooklyn 

Before we'd get to see the world 

 

That's my life

Don't need my eyes to see 

You can take my breath away

But not my memory

 

Though my body is tired 

My soul will never sleep 

How can my life be over? 

When it's right in front of me

 

SYPIE

Ok, so Shooky and I didn't exactly get to see the world…at least together. I met mfuture husband Albert when he was stationed in Brooklyn. We made a nice life for ourselves down south. We had two beautiful children before things began to unravel in our marriage. We had just   decided to go our separate ways, when I found out I was pregnant  withDebbie . It was going to be just me and the kids from this point on…and you know what? I was  up for the challenge!

 

The first time that I held you 

I knew it was gonna be fun 

Your sister and your brother 

Made me a better mom 

 

The four of us together

Talking through the night 

That summer we spent in Europe 

It was the best year of my life

 

Your brother was the joker

Your sister missed her dad

And you just kept on smiling

Cause you knew what we had

 

We were all so busy living

That we didn't see the time

Passing right before us 

And leaving me behind

 

SYPIE

I'll admit that I did suffer from a bad case of the empty nest syndrome. Ours was an open house, there was always someone coming and going until they all hit a certain age. At that point they were just going.

 

Then one by one you left home

The way it's supposed to be

But I’d spent more time with you babe 

And I hoped you'd never leave  

 

I know how hard I made it 

For you to break away 

Now I’m the one that's leaving 

So we'll both just have to wait

 

 Cause that's my life

 

HEREAFTER CHOIR

Sha la la sha la la

 

SYPIE

Don't need my eyes to see

 

HEREAFTER CHOIR

Sha la la sha la la

 

SYPIE

You can take my breath away

But not my memory

 

Though my body is tired 

My soul will never sleep

REST IN PEACE

 

ANITA

Time to say goodbye 

Time to walk away 

Everyone is leaving 

There's nothing left to say

 

JASON

Now you have the message 

I've shared with each of you 

I hope you'll find some closure 

I'm looking for some too

 

DEBBIE, MARY, CHRISTINA

Our worlds are still divided 

But I know the time will come 

When we can be together  

And finish what's begun

 

SYPIE, ANITA, EDDIE, ANA, JASON

Rest in peace

Rest in peace

Your mortal soul 

Will rest in peace

 

When you awake

I will be there

 Because goodbye 

Just means good night  

So rest in peace

 

DEBBIE

Some say the road is harder 

For the one that's left behind

 

JASON

Cause the soul knows where it's going 

And the heart is often blind

 

SYPIE

But if you can find the faith 

It's doesn't matter which road you choose

 

ANITA 

That faith will never fail you 

That faith will see you through

 

MARY

I could not imagine

My life without you

 

CHRISTINA

You must be all around me

For me to make it through

 

DEBBIE

Sometimes when I’m sleeping

I'll go to a place

I know it must be heaven

When I see your face

 

MARY, CHRISTINA, DEBBIE 

So we'll keep the candle burning 

We'll keep the memory true 

And when the wind makes it flicker 

We'll know the wind is you 

We'll know the wind is you

 

MARY, CHRISTINA, DEBBIE, JASON

Rest in peace

 

SYPIE, EDDIE, ANA, HEREAFTER CHOIR

What happens now?

 

MARY, CHRISTINA, DEBBIE, JASON

Rest in peace

 

SYPIE, EDDIE, ANA, HEREAFTER CHOIR

What happens now?

 

MARY, CHRISTINA, DEBBIE, JASON

Your troubled soul

 

SYPIE, EDDIE, ANA, HEREAFTER CHOIR

Our troubled soul

 

MARY, CHRISTINA, JASON

Will rest in peace

 

DEBBIE

Please, please, please

 

SYPIE, EDDIE, ANA, HEREAFTER CHOIR

When you awake

 

DEBBIE

Please say you'll be there

 

SYPIE, EDDIE, ANA, HEREAFTER CHOIR

I will be there

 

DEBBIE

Please say you'll be there

 

JASON, MARY, CHRISTINA, ANITA, HEREAFTER CHOIR

Because goodbye 

Just means good night

 

SYPIE, EDDIE, ANA

What happens now?

 

JASON, MARY, CHRISTINA, DEBBIE, ANITA, HEREAFTER CHOIR

Goodbye just means good night

 

SYPIE, EDDIE, ANA

What happens now?

 

EVERYONE

Goodbye just means good...

 

ANITA, DEBBIE

...night

 

When you awake 

I will be there 

 

Because goodbye 

Just means good night

 

Goodbye 

Just means good night  

 

Goodbye

Just means good night

 

So rest in peace

TALK TO ME

 

JASON

I've been hearing voices

Before I could even speak

When people make their choices 

I'm the first one that they seek

 

Some will wait for years

Just to walk through that door 

But when they look at me 

It's someone else they're looking for 

 

I have this gift

It's not for music not for art 

My gift is different 

My gift is odd 

 

I wish I could control it

Take some time off to break free

Sometimes I wish the voice I hear

Was talking just to me 

 

Talk to me

Tell me what I want to hear

 

Talk to me

I can feel that you are near 

 

There's so much 

I want to share with you 

I'd give everything I have 

Just to get you to 

 

Talk to me

And I’ll show you love that's real

 

Talk to me 

You can whisper in my ear 

 

There's so much

I want to share with you 

 

Talk to me

Talk to me

 

I've been waiting 

For you

 

Show me you can hear me

Show me cause I’m blind 

My only gift has failed me 

I've fallen way behind 

 

The place I thought I’d be at

Now seems so far away 

I just need a sign 

To get me through the day 

 

Your life seemed so tragic

And I know the price you paid 

They all buy the magic 

Till the magic fades away 

 

But I saw something different

I saw something real 

If only I could reach you 

If only I could feel

 

 Talk to me 

Tell me what I want to hear

 

Talk to me 

I can feel that you are near

 

There's so much

I want to share with you 

 

JASON/ANITA

Talk to me 

Talk to me

Talk to me

 

I'll be waiting

I'll be waiting for you

REST IN PEACE [REPRISE]

 

ANITA

Rest in peace

Rest in peace

 

Your troubled soul

Will rest in peace  

When you awake 

I will be there 

 

Because goodbye 

Just means good night

 

Goodbye 

Just means good night  

 

Goodbye

Just means good night

 

So rest in peace

HEREAFTER

 

SYPIE

They say do not go gentle 

Into that last good night

 

EDDIE

But what happens when we're finished? 

Will we finally see the light?

 

ANA

Do we get to meet our maker? 

Is our name checked off a list?

 

ANITA

Do we really go to heaven?

Or does the road take another twist?

 

SYPIE, ANITA, ANA, EDDIE

When we hear our loved ones call us 

Why do we turn the other way? 

Even though our life has ended 

Why can't they give us one more day?

 

HEREAFTER CHOIR

Hereafter

 

ANITA, SYPIE, ANA, EDDIE

What happens now?

 

HEREAFTER CHOIR

Hereafter

 

ANITA, SYPIE, ANA, EDDIE

What happens now?

 

HEREAFTER CHOIR

Hereafter

 

ANITA, SYPIE, ANA, EDDIE

Where do we go? 

When we leave here? 

We won't come back

We'll disappear - after

 

HEREAFTER CHOIR

Hereafter

 

ANITA

We have to go

We can’t stay here

We’ll all come back

We'll reappear - after

 

HEREAFTER CHOIR

Hereafter

 

[INTERLUDE]

 

SYPIE

I may not know where I am going

 

EDDIE 

And what I don't know is what I fear

 

ANA

Even though it takes a lifetime

 

ANITA

We'll be together after here…

 

SYPIE, ANITA, ANA, EDDIE

Hereafter Here…

 

SYPIE

…after

 

HEREAFTER CHOIR

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

 

[THE END]
