Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown - Island (Reprise)

2011 Broadway
Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown the Musical -
Island (Reprise) Lyrics


PEPA:
I thought we had just what we needed
A life you could hold in your hand
But now that the waves have receded
I see it was all a reflection on saltwater

I built a house on the sand
Gathered all my hopes and put them inside
So drunk with the view
I forgot to watch out for the tide

Well, here comes the tide

Where does it go?
Where does it go
When it goes away?
Where does it go?
I thought I saw it here yesterday

CARLOS:
Do you just watch it all disappear?
Almost within reach but vanishing away?

CANDELA:
You can find so much
You can lose so much
In a day

PEPA:
In a single day

Where did it go?
Where did it go?
With the tidal wave?

CANDELA:
Where did it go?
Where did it go?

PEPA:
What do you do?
When do you know

PEPA & CANDELA:
That it can't be saved?

CARLOS:
When do you know?
When you know
I wish you'd tell me

PEPA:
Where did it go?
I wish you'd tell me
'Cause I forget

PEPA & CARLOS:
Up in the clouds
Up with the smoke

PEPA:
From your cigarette?
Where did it go?

CARLOS:
Where did it go?
Where did it go?
