Because Of You Lyrics

2006 Off-Broadway
I Love You Because the Musical - Because Of You Lyrics


AUSTIN
Wow.
I let myself feel feelings I don’t usually allow.
Ah, it felt exciting.
It felt scary.
None of my vocabulary can do justice to the way I feel right now.

Did you see the look on that guy’s face when we took the crap with us?

MARCY
“That’s not your wine! I’m an angry waiter, bleh”

AUSTIN

I took off and sprinted straight through town.
When you got screwed,

I did all sorts of things I wouldn’t usually do.
And it’s all because  of you.
Because of you.
Because of you.

MARCY

And it’s all because of you.
Because of you.
Because of you.

AUSTIN
Because of you, I acted out of line.

MARCY
Because of you, we just stole some free boxed wine.

AUSTIN
Because of you I acted bravely

MARCY

MARCY & AUSTIN

AUSTIN

But it was impolite.
Tonight I had a good time,
And that’s a little disconcerting.

AUSTIN
Tonight,
For just a moment,
I forgot that I was hurting.

Tonight I felt free.

MARCY
You know, I sort of felt that too.

AUSTIN
And it’s all because…

MARCY
It’s all because…
