A song from the new musical The Prom
THE PROM the Musical - Alyssa Greene Lyrics


ALYSSA (spoken)
She’s a complete and total control freak!

(sung)
The hair has to be perfect
The A’s have to be straight
You have to join the debate club,
On that there’s no debate

You have bible camp each summer
To keep you pure and clean
Endless rules apply
When you’re Alyssa Greene

The trophies have to be first place
The ribbons have to be blue
There’s always some competition
Or hoops for jumping through

Your mom’s made sacrifices,
So win homecoming queen
Cause it’s do or die
When you’re Alyssa Greene

And you wish there was a world
Where you were simply free to live
And when people criticized you,
You had no more shits to give

And in this other lifetime
When you tell yourself be brave
You won’t cave
That’s the one thing I truly crave

But your feelings have to be phony
Your weight has to be tracked
If you don’t like shaking pom-poms
You’d better learn to act

Just have everything perfected
By the time you reach eighteen
Don’t ask how or why
When you’re Alyssa Greene

Improve all of your strong points
And hide the things that you lack
Cause Mom’s convinced if you’re perfect
Your father might come back

You’re not yourself
You’re not what she wants
You’re someone in between
Your whole life’s a lie
When you’re Alyssa Greene

EMMA (spoken)
I’m gonna go public and tell my story. Will you do it with me?

ALYSSA (spoken)
Emma, you know I want to, but I can’t-

EMMA (spoken)
Wanting is not enough. I believe you have feelings for me, but I can’t do this anymore. It hurts too much.

ALYSSA (spoken)
Emma, are you breaking up with me?

EMMA (spoken)
I guess I am…yeah. Bye.

ALYSSA
You’re not yourself
You’re not what she wants
You’re someone in between…
