The Drop Lyrics

2017 Off-Broadway
Hundred Days the Musical - The Drop Lyrics


SHAUN: (spoken)
We're driving to the gig
In my poor old Mazda
With the taped-on side view mirrors
(Drum Click)
Gummy hot coins on the dashboard
(Drum Click)

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
Flipping through his CD wallet
CD wallets are still a thing
(Drum Click)
I’m pulling out a Barenaked Ladies CD

SHAUN: (spoken)
Ouch

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
Shaun is laughing
And then—

JO:
He fell down so slowly

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
We rear end a UPS truck
I see Shaun thrown forward

JO, REGGIE:
He fell down so slowly

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
I hear him thud on the steering wheel
Then suddenly I'm running

SHAUN: (spoken)
I look up and she's gone

(Drum Click)

JO, REGGIE:
He fell down so slowly

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
I get half a block away before I realize what I’m doing

(Drum Click)

SHAUN: (spoken)
And this is a thing I know about her now:
That when she's scared, she runs

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
The St Luke's emergency room admits him
He needs stitches
(Drum Click and Bass Hit)
They want to run tests
(Drum Click and Bass Hit)
I don't know how to reach his parents

JO:
He lay down

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
It's three a.m
Waiting for test results
I'm trying to stay awake

REGGIE:
So slowly

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
I see him sitting on the examining table (with Drum Click and Bass Hit) Click
I hear him hit the steering wheel
I see him fall, (with Drum Click and Bass Hit) Click

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
Hospital smell
Fluorescent bulbs
(with Drum Click and Bass Hit)
Click

I hear the thud
I see him fall
(with Drum Click and Bass Hit)
Click

A waft of air
The taste of salt
(with Drum Click and Bass Hit)
Click

I hear the thud
I see him fall
(with Drum Click and Bass Hit)
Click

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
And I'm fifteen

And I'm in the dream
And we’re in a tiny boat past the breakers
And we’re in the diner booth
It's covered in salt

And I’m in the dream
And we're in a tiny boat past the breakers
And we're in the diner booth
It's covered in salt

And I’m in the dream
And we're in a tiny boat past the breakers
And we're in the diner booth
It's covered in salt

I hear the thud
I see him fall. Click

ABIGAIL, JO, REGGIE:
I hear the thud
I see him fall, Click
I hear the thud
I see him fall, Click

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
And I can't wake up
