Someone like you

I love the soaring love song “Someone Like You”. It’s from Jekyll & Hyd3, the Musical. Read about it on Wiki here.

Jekyll Hyde

OK. So, I’m a Broadway addict. (Did you know that Robert Lopez completed the EGOT with his Frozen Oscar in March?)

This is my favorite song of the month. It’s a soaring love song. Broadway cast recording, Linda Elder hit it out of the park. Awesome recording. Rich. Velvety. Sweeping. Hopeful.

I haven’t seen Jekyll & Hyde live, but I love the music.

I’m a total sap.

As I think about why I like the song, these came to mind

– To find love is something very special. I feel lucky to have found my ‘someone’. And, I have in my beautiful wife. She’s very internet shy, so I won’t gush about her here.

– Finding love make me feel like flying. It’s a soaring experience that brings me alive.

– Like the dynamics of the song, love is gentle and fragile; it’s strong and beautiful. It builds to full throttle Broadway belting. Yeah!

– There is hope because someone else believes in you. Ain’t that the truth? Don’t you feel that when someone feels that you can make it, then you believe in yourself too. Yeah, that feels good. I know that in the tough patches in my life, there were true friends that instilled that belief in me that helped me get to the next level. Of course, my wonderful wife was and always is there for me, believing in me. My friend Brian did it many times. My PTC friends, they think I can move mountains, or at least climb them all.

I bought the Original Broadway Cast Recording. It’s great. If you google the show, please PLEASE do not watch the David Hasslehoff version on youtube. omg. it’s bad.

Here’s the lyrics:

LUCY:

I peer through windows,
Watch life go by,
Dream of tomorrow,
And wonder “why”?

The past is holding me,
Keeping life at bay,
I wander lost in yesterday,
Wanting to fly –
But scared to try.

But if someone like you
Found someone like me,
Then suddenly
Nothing would ever be the same!

My heart would take wing,
And I’d feel so alive –
If someone like you
Found me!

So many secrets
I’ve longed to share!
All I have needed
Is someone there,

To help me see a world
I’ve never seen before –
A love to open every door,
To set me free,
So I can soar!

If someone like you
Found someone like me,
Then suddenly
Nothing would ever be the same!

There’d be a new way to live,
A new life to love,
If someone like you
Found me!

Oh, if someone like you
Found someone like me,
Then suddenly
Nothing would ever be the same!

My heart would take wing,
And I’d feel so alive –
If someone like you
Loved me…
Loved me…
Loved me!…
