The Years Go By Lyrics

2017 Off-Broadway
Hundred Days the Musical - The Years Go By Lyrics


ABIGAIL: (spoken)
That night
Back home
In the dark

JO: (spoken)
So how will you do it?

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
While Shaun lies sleeping next to me

JO: (spoken)
How will it possibly work?

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
I keep planning and conjuring and dreaming this idea
Until finally
I step fully inside it

JO: (spoken)
How can you squeeze your whole lives into a hundred days?

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
We'll have Halloween in the morning
Christmas in the afternoon
Birthdays at sundown
[JO, spoken]
It sounds like a game

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
It is like a game

REGGIE: (spoken)
How will you speed up time?
What about the seasons?

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
We'll make snow in the freezer for winter
We'll grow geraniums in the bathroom for spring
We'll watch the traffic outside our window
And call it the Thanksgiving Day Parade

JO:
The years the years the years go by
The years the years the years go by

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
Time slooooooooows down

REGGIE & JO:
The years the years the years go by

REGGIE, JO, DANI, COLETTE:
The years the years the years go by

SHAUN: (spoken)
The seconds stretch into hours

REGGIE, JO, DANI, COLETTE, ABIGAIL, SHAUN:
The years the years the years go by

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
We touch each moment as it floats by

ALL:
The years the years go by
(The years the years the years go by)
The years the years go by
(The years the years the years go by)

JO: (spoken)
The red door opens

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
We see our whole lives stretched out in front of us
An open road, all the way to the ocean

REGGIE:
The years the years

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
And he says
Let's begin

JO: (spoken)
Day one

REGGIE & JO: (spoken)
The years keep on turning away from our faces, the (Day two)
Light passes over us, oh how the days, how the (Day three)
Days keep on turning, turning away from our faces, the (Day four)
Light passes, oh how the days, how the
Days keep turning

ABIGAIL, (REGGIE: (spoken))
The snow is falling (Day five)
The petals are falling (Day six)
The seasons are spinning so quickly
That we can walk right through them (Day ten)
It's working

ALL, (REGGIE: (spoken))
The years the years the years go by (Day nineteen)
The years the years the years go by (Day thirty)
The years the years the years go by (Day thirty-eight)
The years the years go by (The years the years the years go by)
The years the years go by (The years the years the years go by)

REGGIE:
The years the years
The years keep on turning away from our faces

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
And as we walk the road grows longer

REGGIE:
The light passes over us
Oh how the days

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
And as we walk the days become one long day

REGGIE:
How the days keep on turning
Turning away from our faces
The light passes

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
And as we walk the seconds become one long second

REGGIE:
Oh how the days, how the
I love you more

Days keep on turning
The years the years go by

Away from our faces, the
I love you more

Light passes over us
The years the years go by

Oh how the days, how
I love you more

The days keep on turning

Turning
The years the years go by

Away from our faces, the
I love you more

Light passes

The years the years go by

Oh how the days

REGGIE & JO:
I love you more
I love you more
I love you more
I love you more
