Love Story the Musical - What Can You Say? Lyrics

What can you say about a girl
Who seemed to run before she walked
Who thought the stars came out to listen when we talked
I always knew just how she felt
The kind of smile that made you melt
However hard you disagree

What can you say about a girl
Who's every look could hurt or heal
Who told the truth whatever pain it might reveal
She told it straight, she kept her word
She thought that boys were quite absurd
Yet she learned what love can be
What can you say?

Say that love's a bridge to cross an ocean
Pray that it survives when hope does not
Say that there's a light that shines regardless
Pray that love abides no matter what

What can you say about a girl
Who walked to bach each winter day
Made pianos sing and people weep to hear her play
So full of pride, I'd nearly burst
I'd wait ‘till all the crowd dispersed
Without the proper words to hand
What could I say?

Say that love's a bridge to cross an ocean
Pray that it survives when hope does not
Say that there's a light that shines regardless
Pray that love abides no matter what

What can you say about a girl
Who never let the weekend drag
And could not lift the weight of books stuffed in her bag
She hugged the bed and stole the sheets
And walked in zig-zags down the streets
I loved her more than I can say
What would she say?

It's such a shame I can't be there to be a guest at my own wake
To hear the speeches that they'll make
Just think of all the lies and secrets I would hear
There such a gloom hangs in the air
I'd get them singing Penny Lane
Get drunk on pricey pink champagne
Then I would lean across and whisper in his ear
‘Hey, you're far too cute to be in mourning
Lay your weight of sorrow to one side
Play those chirpy songs you liked in prep school
Way before you met your arty bride
Hey, I never liked it when you cried'

Say that love's a bridge to cross an ocean
Pray that it survives when hope does not
Say that there's a light that shines regardless
Pray that love abides no matter what
Pray that love abides no matter what

What can you say about a girl
A 25-year-old girl
Who died?
