Broadway Bounty Hunter - Veins Lyrics

2019 Off-Broadway
Broadway Bounty Hunter the Musical - Veins Lyrics


Performed by: Annie Golden, Ensemble

ANNIE:
When people used to ask me who I was
I used to say, I’m just an actress
Cuz that was what I did
So that’s who I thought i really was

Just a kitten in a cage
Puppet on a stage
Getting my strings pulled from above

They held me up
And I confused that for love

But now my eyes are wide, I can hear a sound
It’s my heart re-starting, I feel the pound
Oh oh, I feel it pulse in my veins
You cut me down and you broke my back
You spilled my blood, now I want it back
Oh oh, I want it back in my veins  

From the very start I always played the part
I was expected to inhabit
I’d take a hit long as it fit
Into the role

Now I don’t wanna be defined
By what’s in the mind
Of some man behind the curtain
So I am breaking character
And taking total control
Of body and soul

I’ve fixed each rip and repaired each tear
Now my vessel’s ready to take me there
Oh oh, the blood is back in my veins

ENSEMBLE:
The blood is back, blood is back in her veins

ANNIE:
My pulse is rising, my sight’s are set
And I’m moving fast but I’m not there yet
Oh oh, the blood is back in my veins

I am not a superhero
A mother, nor a blushing flower

ENSEMBLE:
Annie golden’s not a blushing flower

ANNIE & ENSEMBLE:
Don’t have to be a superhero

ANNIE:
To have power

ANNIE & ENSEMBLE:
Power, power

ANNIE:
I’m not gonna run, I’m not gonna hide
If I need an answer I look inside
Oh oh, because I’m holding the reins

I am tnt, I’m a poison dart    
And my bulls-eye, baby, is your dirty heart
Oh oh, I’m gonna show you my veins, my veins, my veins

ANNIE, ENSEMBLE:
And my back is mended, my heart is full
And the puppet strings that you used to pull
Are lying on the ground
A broken pile of chains

ENSEMBLE:
A broken pile, just a pile of chains

ANNIE:
Full steam ahead, I won’t be subdued
Cuz the blood I shed, it has been renewed
Oh oh, after many great pains
The blood is back in my veins

ANNIE & ENSEMBLE:
Yo! Annie, Annie
Moving on up
Go Annie, Annie
Moving on up
She’s got the blood in her veins
Yo! Annie, Annie
Moving on up
Go Annie, Annie
Moving on up
She’s got the blood in her veins
Yo! Annie, Annie
Moving on up
Go Annie, Annie
Moving on up
She’s got the blood in her veins

ANNIE:
I’ve always had the blood in my veins
