Carrie: the Musical - Carrie Song Lyrics
That’s not my name!
Doesn’t anybody ever get it right,
When’ll they remember I’m Carrie White?
Is it any harder so say then;
God damn toad, and spastic,
And weirdo and dumb bitch
Doesn’t anybody think that I can hear?
‘speically when I’ve got them screaming in my ear,
Every day they mock me and push me around, ‘til I drop
If I had a wish, God, I wish they’d stop
When will they?
I wish they’d.
When will they, when will they, when will they?
Sometimes their hatred is out of control,
God how they hurt me.
Mama says suffering is good for the soul,
But they hurt me
And if I could I’d bring them all,
Down to their knees!
I’d make them sorry forever for teasing Carrie
I will not cry,
I try so hard to play their way.
Why do they find it so hard to say Carrie?
Why do they always treat me so bad,
They all know my name?
I don’t know why they all get so mad,
It’s always the same!
What’s going on deep in me,
All of these feelings suddenly?
If I am changing, will I still be;
Or what if I am somebody new?
Imagine, the things I might do!
I might a chance, I’ve always wondered how
Or maybe I’ll dance and try how to laugh more than I do now.
And the world will open its eyes,
And for once the whole world will recognize Carrie!
Then all those people who scream night and day:
“Poor praying Carrie!”
They’d see the new me,
And they might even say:
“Look! It’s Carrie!”
And finally, I’d hear that word,
Sounding so sweet!
Thousands of voices forever repeating: Carrie,
I am the sound of distant thunder,
A color, a flame!
I am a song of endless wonder,
That no one will claim.
But someday, oh my, someday!
Someone will know my name!

Carrie the Musical Lyrics
Open Your Heart
And Eve Was Weak
Don't Waste the Moon
Do Me a Favor
I Remember How Those Boys Could Dance
Out for Blood
It Hurts to Be Strong
I'm Not Alone
When There's No One
Unsuspecting Hearts (Reprise)
