It's forlorn, magnificent, and amazing...and it WANTS TO BE HEARD!
The Chandelier's Lament
For those who lay in history
Scorned with great neglect,
I find quite well I take the cake:
The saddest victim yet!
The diva shrieks,
The chorus leaps,
The Phantom creeps,
Miss Daae weeps,
(Oh yes. Her lover bleats).
But what, O good observer,
What is there to do?
To make you turn with wonder—
Oh what will interest you?
If it's diamonds, I am dripping
Beautiful as sin,
And though it's true I've no hands or feet
What counts lies deep within!
(A massive heart of lead, respectively).
From my perch I tremble with desire
To fill your hearts with burning fire
I'm a singer! I'm a star!
But you've never heard my repertoire…
Oh bloody hell, I may as well
Rant away to the ceiling high
(Who claims to be sadder than I…hah!)
I don't have a stunt double
To take that breathless plunge
That dratted Phantom sends me through
Lunge after lunge.
I could complain, but did not once!
Not I of steely strength and blaze!After being dropped some twenty times
(Though I'll admit I sawstars for days)
And Andrew, Joel and Gaston
Make me out to be
A great quivering nincompoop
But someday they will see…
That musical would never sell—
If I hadn't done so well!
All I've ever truly been is kindly and well meaning,
But before I forget…
