Althea Lyrics

2013 West End
The Light Princess Musical - Althea Lyrics

Song was written by Tori Amos and Samuel Adamson.

Digby:   
Pretend within your hand
You’re holding a glass made out of crystal –
Then with this hand try and reach
For those apple blossoms that are fragile.
Just arch your back,
Sweep the night away.

Althea:
Who do you think, let me go,
do you think you are? Now
Give me a knife and I will slay you like a dog,
Let me go,
Do you think I am your
Prey? Some
Weak, exotic bird?

Digby:
No! – No, you are Althea...
You are, you are Althea –
You are changing the world for me.
You are heaven-sent –
A vision of golden light falling.
Just look at me,
Look into my eyes –

Althea: 
But, sir –

Digby:   
Open your frame, that’s it –
Now roll your lovely neck just a touch –
Lay your body back to the music,
Gently swing those hips.

Althea:     
This is confused, I could kill, it is so confusing,
I want to tear you into strips, you are a dull,
Self-obsessed
Casanova. But those
Lips. I’m
Not a floating freak.

Digby:   
No! – No, you are Althea...
You are, you are Althea –
You are changing the world for me.
You are heaven-sent –
A vision of golden light falling...
Light falling.
Look down –

Althea: 
I just don’t know what to say to you –

Digby:
Just look at me!
Look into my eyes –

Althea:  
But, sir –?

Digby:  
I will never, no never do you harm –

Althea:  
Never do me harm?

Digby:  
I will never, no never do you harm.
