Good Songs: Ruthie Henshall –“As if We Never Said Goodbye”

leave a comment »

So, I’m writing this post simply because I was perusing youtube and found this video. The song is from the Sunset Boulevard musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber. It is performed by Ruthie Henshall who is a mezzo-soprano of the highest quality. She has been involved with musicals such as Chicago, Les Miserables,  and many more…but I’m going to cut this post short and let the video and lyrics speak for themselves.

“As if We Never Said Goodbye” from Stlyrics.com

I don’t know why I’m frightened
I know my way around here
The cardboard trees, the painted seas, the sound here…
Yes, a world to rediscover
But I ‘m not in any hurry
And I need a moment

The whispered conversations in overcrowded hallways
The atmosphere as thrilling here as always
Feel the early morning madness
Feel the magic in the making
Why, everything’s as if we never said goodbye

I’ve spent so many mornings just trying to resist you
I’m trembling now, you can’t know how I’ve missed you
Missed the fairy tale adventure
In this ever spinning playground
We were young together

I’m coming out of make-up
The lights already burning
Not long until the cameras will start turning…
And the early morning madness
And the magic in the making
Yes, everything’s as if we never said goodbye

I don’t want to be alone
That’s all in the past
This world’s waited long enough
I’ve come home at last!

And this time will be bigger
And brighter than we knew it
So watch me fly, we all know I can do it…
Could I stop my hand from shaking?
Has there ever been a moment
With so much to live for?

The whispered conversations in overcrowded hallways
So much to say not just today but always…
We’ll have early morning madness
We’ll have magic in the making
Yes, everything’s as if we never said goodbye
Yes, everything’s as if we never said goodbye…
We taught the world new ways to dream!
