Someday I'll reach Broadway,
my name will be in lights.
On opening night,
I'll know its been worth the wait,
Worth the sacrifice, worth the time
it took to get to this stage.
And I'll take center stage,
'cause I'm a Broadway
baby and a star this time.
And they start to light, those lights
and for my cue I wait,
to wow the crowd to-night.
Whether its "Cabaret" or "Just Imagine" or" Good-night
Saigon", with my voice, my body, my soul - I will own the stage
and as the song starts to cresendo, the audience will wait
as I belt that final note like the old stars of Broadway
half -blinded by the joyous lights
I can hardly see the crowd from up upon my stage
because its my time
to sing the "Music of the Night"
to dance so hard my make up fades under the lights
I'd give anything to be on stage
to be there on Broadway
How long will I have to wait?
Everything else will have to wait,
I don't have any time
For anything that doesn't lead to Broadway
Even my dreams take me there at night
To stand on that cold, harsh stage
but, be warmed by the lights
And although like my dream they dim, those lights
I linger, I stay and I wait
to leave that stage
until, its absolutely time
because some night,
I'll be awake, not dreaming and on Broadway
The lights go on and I wait to take the stage,
The time has come, tonight's the night, the dream's come true on Broadway!
