Lie Next to Me Lyrics

2017 Off-Broadway
Hundred Days the Musical - Lie Next to Me Lyrics


SHAUN: (spoken)
I had this crazy idea that when you capture enough moments
Fix the details in your brain
A day can feel like a year
I mean like not metaphorically
I really believed we could create more time this way

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
For example: he took me on a walk from Chinatown to the Cloisters.
We spent the whole walk memorizing moments

SHAUN: (spoken)
Taking mental pictures
To stretch out time, to remember
Like: kicking dry leaves in the parking lot, click.
Pizza, click. Drinking dark beer to impress each other

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
Click
We sneak into a hotel to use their pool.
Wet skivvies in a plastic bag
(with Drum Click)
Click

SHAUN: (spoken)
We try to get to Coney Island to watch the sun rise
(Drum Click)
But we fall asleep on the N train and wake up back in Astoria
(Drum Click)
Dawn outside the subway window

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
(with Drum Click)
Click
I can't believe that was all one day
(Drum Click)
I say let's go up to the roof
Look at the city
But he calls me back to the bed

(Drum Click, Click, Click, Click)

SHAUN:
Lie next to me
Lie next to me, lie next to me

Lie next to me, lie next to me
Lie next to me, lie next to me

I will long for you
Will you long for me
It's the only thing I will ever do
Do Oo Oo Oo

If I lay you down
Would you call my name
It's the only thing I will ever do

SHAUN, ABIGAIL:
Do Oo Oo Oo

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
After two weeks of these long days
And long long nights

He finally pops the question:

SHAUN: (spoken)
Will you start a band with me?

ABIGAIL: (spoken)
Yes
