Come From Away the Musical - Costume Party Lyrics


JANICE (spoken)
Three forty-five a.m.
Overnight the communities population has gone from approximately 9,000 to 16,000.
I'm sure barely any of us have slept tonight.
We're hopeful that our visitors will be back in the air come morning

KEVIN T. (spoken)
I woke up from this dream, which I can't quite remember
But there was this music in it that I'd heard somewhere before

KEVIN J. (spoken)
I woke up from a dream that we were stuck in some backwater Canadian town
and that my air mattress deflated

BOB (spoken)
I woke up to the smell of freshly baked bread

ANNETTE (spoken)
Four a.m. in Newfoundland is breakfast time in Germany,
and we got a lot of passengers here from Frankfurt,
so breakfast starts at four a.m. and we start scrambling eggs

BOB (spoken)
Poached eggs, scrambled eggs, omelettes

DIANE (spoken)
Fried baloney

NICK (spoken)
Something called toutons

KEVIN T. (spoken)
I saw a casserole dish I don't think I could lift

BOB (spoken)
They made enough food to feed 7,000 people
It's like they never slept

BEULAH (spoken)
There's this one man from the Middle East. Well, we don't really know -
hasn't said a word to a soul, and some of the other passengers seem a bit wary of him,
so it's a little odd to find him poking around the kitchen

ALI (spoken)
Oh, hello

BEULAH (spoken)
Hello, can I help you with something?

ALI (spoken)
I would like to be of assistance with the food

BEULAH (spoken)
Oh no, that's not necessary. Really, you go out there and sit down

CLAUDE (spoken)
I've been going all night but I can't stop. None of us can.
I splash some cold water on my face and just keep going. We've got 7,000 scared
and angry people who don't want to be here, And they're about to wake up

DIANE
In a crowded room
Filled with strangers sleeping

KEVIN T.
An airplane blanket
And pillow on the floor

DIANE
The sun comes streamin'
Through the window

DIANE, KEVIN T.
And I can't sleep anymore

KEVIN J.
Staring at these strangers
Waking up around me

HANNAH
Sitting in a crowd of people
Waiting for the phone

KEVIN J.
And in a town that suddenly doubled population

KEVIN J., HANNAH, DIANE, KEVIN T.
I feel so alone

KEVIN J.
It's like any of us could have died on Tuesday

KEVIN T.
And that we're dared to see things differently today

DIANE
I'm feeling different

HANNAH
Just seems -

KEVIN J.
Strange

KEVIN T.
Who are these people here?

HANNAH
Where am I?

DIANE
No one knows me here

DIANE, HANNAH, KEVIN T., KEVIN J.
Who am I if I don't feel like the me from yesterday

NICK (spoken)
I wake up in a crowded room full of people sleeping on the floor.
And I see Diane and ask, "are we leaving?"

DIANE (spoken)
Any time now

NICK (spoken)
Is your hair different? I mean - you look good. I like it

DIANE (spoken)
Ah thank you. No shampoo for three days

KEVIN T. (spoken)
They start handing out clothes to anyone who needs them

KEVIN J. (spoken)
I haven't changed my clothes in thirty-nine hours

BOB (spoken)
I wanted to burn my socks

KEVIN J. (spoken)
Kevin puts on this plaid - thing. He says he's "incognito"
and that he's "going to blend in with the natives", but he just looks like a gay lumberjack

DIANE
Changing into another woman's donated set of clothes

KEVIN T.
Looking different
Feeling kinda different too

DIANE
I can't quite explain

KEVIN T.
But when I woke

DIANE
When David wasn't on that plane

DIANE, KEVIN T.
It's like I changed into somebody else, but who?
And it's somehow like we're at a costume party

KEVIN T.
And for a second you are not yourself

DIANE
- You are not yourself

KEVIN T.
And you look around
And blink your eyes

DIANE
And barely even recognize

DIANE, KEVIN T.
The person in the mirror who's turned into someone else

KEVIN J. (spoken)
Hey little sister. yeah still here where they eat rainbows for breakfast.
Are you taking care of mom? No, I just wish I was home. No, not L.A. - Brooklyn.
Shut up, you're such a brat. No, I just needed to hear your voice

BEULAH (spoken)
Excuse me, are you Hannah?

HANNAH (spoken)
Yeah, that's me

BEULAH (spoken)
My name's Beulah. Someone told me your son's a firefighter? Yeah, mine is too,
here in town. And I know, Gander's not New York, but is there anything I can do?

HANNAH (spoken)
No, I just need to hear from my son

BEULAH (spoken)
I understand

HANNAH
Prayin' for a phone call

KEVIN J.
Praying for a way home

KEVIN J. HANNAH]
Asking questions

KEVIN J.
Asking can I get back on that god-forsaken plane

HANNAH
And all around me people chat

KEVIN J.
And people snack

KEVIN J., HANNAH
Like nothing's happened
And I need to hear we're going back before I go insane

BEVERLY (spoken)
Good morning, I'm Captain Bass. I've just heard from the airline. Now,
I know this is gonna be hard to hear, but the American airspace remains closed.
I can't tell you how long we'll be on the ground,
but we are gonna be here for some time

DIANE
Here for some time

KEVIN J.
- Here for some time

HANNAH
- Here for too long

KEVIN T.
- Here for how long?

KEVIN J.
- When will we know

DIANE, HANNAH, KEVIN T.
- When will we know

KEVIN J., DIANE, HANNAH, KEVIN T.
How much longer?

HANNAH (spoken)
Beulah, wait. Can you help me find a Catholic church?

DIANE (spoken)
I can't sit here, I need to get some air

KEVIN T. (spoken)
Let's go see where we are. The sun's out it'll do you good!

KEVIN J. (spoken)
Seriously? You know what? Go get lost in the woods,
I'm gonna be ready when we leave

KEVIN J. HANNAH
And it's somehow like we're stuck here at a messed up costume party

KEVIN T. DIANE
And there's nothing here for millions -

KEVIN J., HANNAH
- Far away from those you care for

KEVIN T., DIANE, KEVIN J., HANNAH
On an isolated island in between
There and here (There and here)
