2001 Off-Broadway
Tick, Tick... Boom! the Musical - Johnny Can't Decide Lyrics


Music and lyrics written by Jonathan Larson.

JONATHAN:
Break of day, the dawn is here
Johnny's up and pacing
Compromise, or persevere?
His mind is racing
Johnny has no guide - Johnny wants to hide
Can he make a mark, if he gives up his spark?
Johnny can't decide

SUSAN:
Susan longs to live by the sea,
She's through with competition
Susan wants a family
Johnny's got a tough decision
Johnny has no guide

JONATHAN AND SUSAN:
Johnny wants to hide
Can he settle down - and still not drown?

JONATHAN:
Drown

JONATHAN AND SUSAN:
Johnny can't decide

MICHAEL:
Michael's gonna have it all
His luck will never end
Johnny's backed against the wall
Can he bend his dreams just like his friend?

JONATHAN SUSAN MICHAEL:
Johnny sees that
Susan's right Susan's right -
Ambition eats right Ambition eats right Johnny sees right
Through you Through you Through you

Michael doesn't see
Michael doesn't see I Johnny Why Johnny
Hold on tight Hold on tight Holds so tight
To the things that To the things that
Johnny feels are true Johnny feels are true Johnny feels are true

SUSAN AND MICHAEL:
Johnny has no guide
Johnny has no guide
Johnny has no guide
Johnny has no guide

ALL:
How can you soar
If you're nailed to the
Floor?

Johnny can't decide

JONATHAN (speaking):
I want to write music. I want to sit down right now at the piano
and write a song that people will listen to and remember,
and do the same thing every morning for the rest of my life.

JONATHAN SUSAN AND MICHAEL
Johnny has no guide
Johnny has no guide
Johnny wants to hide
Johnny wants to hide

ALL:
How do you know when it's time to let go?

Johnny can't decide
(Johnny can't decide)
Johnny can't decide
(Johnny can't decide)
Johnny can't decide
(Johnny can't decide)
Decide, decide, decide, decide

JONATHAN:
Johnny can't decide
