Lyrics

OUR TIME

from Merrily We Roll Along (Stephen Sondheim)


Something is stirring, shifting ground …
It’s just begun.
Edges are blurring all around
And yesterday is done.

Feel the flow, hear what’s happening:
We’re what’s happening.
Don’t you know? We’re the movers and we’re the shapers.
We’re the names in tomorrow’s papers.
Up to us, man, to show ’em …

It’s our time, breathe it in:
Worlds to change and worlds to win.
Our turn coming through,
Me and you, man, me and you!

Feel how it quivers on the brink …

What?
Everything!
Gives you the shivers Makes you think
There’s so much stuff to sing!

And you and me
We’ll be singing it like the birds,
Me with music and you the words,
Tell ’em things they don’t know!
Up to us, pal, to show ’em …

Our time, breathe it in:
Worlds to change and worlds to win.
Our turn, we’re what’s new,
Me and you, pal, Me and you! Me and you…
