Creativity = not so much

I'm still trying to get back on track after this last flare, so my brain cells aren't exactly fully functioning yet. Which is why I am glad that I have stockpiled a few topics that need very little extra explanation. For example, today's post:

Did you know where the name of my blog came from? Not the first name, which I apparently hijacked from the very nice Amy, but the current "Never that Easy?" Well, I'm so glad you asked. It's actually from a song, originally from a musical revue called Closer than Ever. I've never seen the show (actually, the only show I've ever seen live is A Chorus Line, about 14 years ago), but thanks to Standing Room Only (which I've raved about here), I've got a pretty extensive knowledge of musical theatre. Although I've always loved musicals, now I've heard a much wider variety of them. So, here's the lyrics to the excellent song I've taken my title from. Also, a link at the end where you can hear an excerpt, if you so choose.

Oh, and just, before I forget again, Mel you're welcome for the linkage... I hope you'll come back & read me... it gets better, I promise!


It's Never That Easy / I've been Here Before
WOMAN 1
YOU JUST MET HIM, YES, I KNOW
THIS IS LASTING, THIS WILL GROW
BUT OH, IT'S NEVER THAT EASY
BELIEVE ME, IT ISN'T AT ALL

YOU ARE STARSTRUCK, SO WAS I
I WOULD LOVE HIM, TILL I DIE
BUT OH, IT'S NEVER THAT EASY
MY DARLING, NOT EASY AT ALL

ALL YOUR LIFE YOU'LL BE WITH HIM
THINK OF THAT, THINK IT THROUGH
HE MAY CHASE SOME CRAZY WHIM
WHEN HE DOES, YOU'LL GO TOO

AND YOU'LL LOSE HIM NOW AND THEN
BUT EACH MORNING START AGAIN
AND OH, SOME DAYS YOU'LL BE HAPPY
BUT IT WON'T BE EASY
IT'S NEVER THAT EASY
YOU THINK SO, BUT NO
OH NO, I KNOW
IT ISN'T AT ALL.

WOMAN 2
THE MAN SAYS THINGS HE NEEDS TO SAY
TURNS TO SMILE AS HE STANDS AT MY DOOR
AND THEN I SEE HIS EYES ARE GREY
OH GOD I'VE BEEN HERE BEFORE

TO WANT HIM MAKES NO SENSE AT ALL
THEN WE TALK AND OUT HIS FEELINGS POUR
INSIDE ALL MY DEFENCES FALL
OH YES I'VE BEEN HERE BEFORE

THE MAN'S ALL WRONG
THAT'S ALL THAT'S TRUE
AND WHAT IS WORSE
THIS TIME GOOD GOD HE'S TWENTY-TWO
AND SINCE IT'S WRONG, BEFORE WE START
WHY SHOULD I RUSH TO PROVE THAT I CAN BREAK MY HEART ALL OVER?
THE MAN LEAVES AND I'M ON MY OWN
I SIT HERE AND SIMPLY WATCH THE DOOR
AND TELL MYSELF I'M FINE ALONE
OH YES, I'VE BEEN HERE BEFORE
OH YES, I'VE BEEN HERE BEFORE

WOMAN 2 WOMAN 1
THE MAN'S ALL WRONG BUT OH
THAT'S ALL THAT'S TRUE IT'S NEVER THAT EASY
AND WHAT IS WORSE BELIEVE ME
THIS TIME, GOOD GOD,
HE'S TWENTY-TWO IT ISN'T AT ALL
AND SINCE IT'S WRONG HE MAY CHASE
BEFORE WE START SOME CRAZY WHIM
WHY SHOULD I RUSH LET HIM GO
TO PROVE OR HE'LL
THAT I CAN BREAK MY HEART ALL OVER BREAK YOUR HEART

THE MAN LEAVES AND I'M ON MY OWN I'M FINE ALONE WITHOUT HIM
I SIT HERE AND SIMPLY WATCH THE DOOR AND YOU'LL MISS HIM NOW AND THEN
THEN TELL MYSELF I'M FINE ALONE I'M FINE ALONE

OH YES I'VE BEEN HERE BEFORE OH YES I'VE BEEN HERE BEFORE
BUT IT WON'T BE EASY
SOME DAYS YOU'LL BE HAPPY
NO NEVER THAT EASY
BUT IT WON'T BE EASY
YOU THINK SO BUT NO
OH, NO

BOTH
I KNOW
I'VE BEEN HERE BEFORE
