Usher, Part 2 Lyrics

Musical by Dave Malloy (2014)
Ghost Quartet the Musical - Usher Part 2 Lyrics

(Music and Lyrics by Dave Malloy)

DAVE (Edgar)
As roxie lay dying in her bedroom
My wife sang
And our son played his guitar
Wild improvisations
Dirges and waltzes
Fevered rhapsodies

GELSEY & BRENT (Lady Usher & Fool)
(Brent playing feverishly)
The stones are alive
The stones are alive
The decaying trees
The moss on the wall
The moss on the wall
The condensation on the window
It is all alive
All alive

ALL
The driver can’t stop
The ghost is here
The driver can’t stop
The ghost is here

The driver can’t stop
Driver can’t stop
The ghost is here
Driver can’t stop
Driver can’t stop
The ghost is here

BRITTAIN (Roxie)
Where is my brother?

BRENT
I’m here

BRITTAIN
Where is my sister?

GELSEY
You don’t have a sister

BRITTAIN
Where is my little girl?

DAVE
She’s gone

BRITTAIN
She’s gone

DAVE
And with that, roxie died

DAVE & GELSEY
And we looked upon the face of our little girl

BRITTAIN
The mockery of a faint blush
The suspiciously lingering smile upon the lip
So terrible in death

GELSEY
O roxie
Why did you have to die
I forgive you
O roxie
O roxie
O rose

I shall preserve her corpse a fortnight
In the vault underneath our bedroom
