"The Next Ten Minutes"

On our way home from the beach last Sunday, Jaime played a few songs from his iPod. He was "educating" Kaich in Broadway musicals. I liked this song that he played from the musical, The Last Five Years.



"The basic premise of the show is that Jamie and Catherine each tell their side of the story: Jamie from the beginning until the end, Cathy at the end, going back to the beginning."

This song is the only moment in the show when they're together, at the same point in time.

JAMIE
Will you share your life with me

CATHERINE
Forever

JAMIE
For the next ten lifetimes?

CATHERINE
Forever, Jamie

JAMIE
For a million summers

BOTH
Till the world explodes
Till there's no one left
Who has ever known us apart

  1. This has got to be -- hands down -- the best small musical I've ever heard so far. My friend burned me the CD and I'm a little obsessed with it. :)
