SCENE THIRTEEN

“DREAM”

Strolling minstrels visit the table of John and Helena.  They play a soft song in G major.

 

Minstrels                     More amore amore.   Like to know you more

More amore amore.  Like to know you more.

 

John                             Tell me your dreams, how do you see this world?

Do you long for a feeling that you’ve not felt before?

Tell me your dreams, tell me your world.

Do you think that I could know you more?

 

Minstrels                     More amore amore.  Like to know you more.

Helena                         My father was a wandering musician.

Now my mother works her fingers to the bone.

It’s a world of broken dreams

where nothing’s ever as it seems.

But I believe that God has much in store.

There’s got to be more.

 

Minstrels                     More amore amore.  Like to know you more.

 

John                             I’d love to have the chance to make a difference

Instead of watching life’s parade pass by.

 

Minstrels                     More amore amore.  Like to know you more.

More amore amore.  Like to know you more.

 

Helena                         Tell me your dreams, how do you see this world?

Do you long for a feeling that you’ve not felt before?

Tell me your dreams, tell me your world.

Do you think that I could know you more?

 

Minstrels                     More amore amore.  Like to know you more.

 

 

John                             My father is a gifted politician.

He earns his votes by knowing what to say.

And I know it might sound strange,

but all his words don’t make a change–

the people most in need are most ignored…

There’s got to be more.

 

Minstrels                     More amore amore.  Like to know you more.

 

Unison                         I’d love to have the chance to make a difference.

Instead of watching life’s parade pass  by.

 

Unison                         I’ve got a dream.  I can change this poor world.

Opportunity’s out there just for me to explore.

And in my dream, you’re in my world.

Glad that I can get to know you more.

 

Minstrels                     More amore amore.  Like to know you more.

More amore amore    Like to know you more.

 

Minstrels continue to stroll away, lights fade, music resolves into G minor.
