Amelie the Musical - Halfway Lyrics

"Halfway" is a song from Amelie performed by Savvy Crawford (Young Amelie) and Phillipa Soo (Amelie).

YOUNG AMELIE:
In my mother's school house
I would sit at the kitchen table
and listen to her teach geometry
She taught me about distance
She taught a lesson about
a boat that is sailing the sea
Trying to get from point A to B

So the little boat's traveling at full sail
And it's trying to reach the shore
But whenever the boat gets halfway there
There's always halfway more

You take half of half
And half of that
So on and on and so
In my mother's schoolhouse
There was always half to go

YOUNG AMEILIE & AMELIE:
To go

Phone rings

NINO (spoken):
Hello?

Phone rings again

NINO:
Hello? I hear you breathing!
Come in and buy something or---
Look, if this is you, please give me what belongs to me.

Phone rings

NINO:
Who are you?

AMELIE:
I'm a mystery wrapped in an enigma
trapped in a paradox disappearing into thin air

NINO:
Me too

AMELIE:
Open your mail

(sung)
Little boat, big ocean
I'm the girl with the copper spyglass
Who prays that today she will spot her shore
All at once a lighthouse
All at once through the copper spyglass
A light telling me to lean in on the oar
I start to row

But before I can get anywhere
From point A to point B
I am at that kitchen table where
I'll always be at sea

Take half of half
And half of that
No matter where I go

YOUNG AMELIE:
Little boat, big ocean

YOUNG AMELIE & AMELIE:
Little boat big ocean
With always halfway to go
To go
