Another Life Lyrics

1983 Broadway
Dance a Little Closer the Musical - Another Life Lyrics

The song is written by Charles Strouse and Alan Jay Lerner.

I like you, I do, Harry.
I like you a lot.
You’re what I want, Harry.
But what I need, you’re not.
I know about love, Harry.
I know what it’s worth
I want the moon, Harry.
All you got is the earth.

The iron bed;
The noisy hall:
Where every sound
Comes though the wall.
The drafty room;
The mended clothes;
The window box
Where nothing grows...
Another life!
I want another life...

With satin sheets
Beneath my skin;
A maid who brings
My breakfast in.

And anywhere
I ever go
I’m someone who
They want to know.
Another life!
I want another life!

Someone rich may come along
And make a queen of me.
Maybe there’ll be three or four,
But I don’t care
As long as there

Are closets filled
With clothes to wear;
With hopes to burn
And dreams to spare.
I want to live so near the sky,
So high I’ll never
Hear another train go by.
Another life!
There’s got to be
Another life
Somewhere for me.

Another Life
Why Can’t the World Go and Leave Us Alone
Dance A Little Closer
There's Always One You Can't Forget
I Never Want to See You Again
