Amelie the Musical - Times Are Hard for Dreamers (Prologue) Lyrics

YOUNG AMELIE:
My parents tell me all the time
that times are hard for dreamers.
And then I'm told that I'm not old enough to disagree.

But when I'm looking out my window I can see the world I'm dreaming
All around me

It's when I'm dreaming that my
house becomes a giant snow globe.
And when I shake it I'm a snowflake floating down the street.

And as I'm falling to the ground
the world is reaching out to catch me.

Though we've yet to really meet.

ENSEMBLE:
Raphael Poulain likes giving salutes.

MAN 1:
In his army doctor uniform.

MAN 2:
Always liked the idea of a daughter.

RAPHAEL:
But not so sure now that I've got one.

MAN 3:
Likes to swim, but dislikes wet swimming suits.

MAN 4: Likes to clean and organize
His tools.

MAN 5:
He likes his daughter in theory.

ENSEMBLE:
But doesn't really like it when he:

RAPHAEL:
Has to touch her.
