Tag- Three-Day Lyrical Challenge – (Day 3)

Again thank you to Alyssa Grace for the tag. I had fun going through all my my favorite songs and deciding  which to use.

The rules are simple:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
  3. Nominate three other bloggers each day.

I am going to use another musical for this last one. (I have a serious love of musicals). I have not seen Dear Evan Hansen but it is coming to my city next year and I plan on seeing it. I love the music and the story seems sad but important.

For this last one I am choosing “Waving through a Window.” I didn’t pick up on the lyrics when I first listened to the cast recording. Then I watched it on the Tony Awards and realized how much they spoke to me. They way he talks about anxiety, especially the first   verse. That hits home hard for me and I feel understood whenever I hear the song.

Waving Through a Window
(performed by Ben Platt & Original Broadway Cast of Dear Evan Hansen)
(from “Dear Evan Hansen” soundtrack)

I’ve learned to slam on the brake
Before I even turn the key
Before I make the mistake
Before I lead with the worst of me (this line just hits so hard)

Give them no reason to stare
No slipping up if you slip away
So I got nothing to share
No, I got nothing to say

Step out, step out of the sun
If you keep getting burned
Step out, step out of the sun
Because you’ve learned, because you’ve learned

On the outside, always looking in
Will I ever be more than I’ve always been?
‘Cause I’m tap, tap, tapping on the glass
I’m waving through a window
I try to speak, but nobody can hear
So I wait around for an answer to appear
While I’m watch, watch, watching people pass
I’m waving through a window, oh
Can anybody see, is anybody waving back at me?

We start with stars in our eyes
We start believing that we belong
But every sun doesn’t rise
And no one tells you where you went wrong

Step out, step out of the sun
If you keep getting burned
Step out, step out of the sun
Because you’ve learned, because you’ve learned

On the outside, always looking in
Will I ever be more than I’ve always been?
‘Cause I’m tap, tap, tapping on the glass
Waving through a window
I try to speak, but nobody can hear
So I wait around for an answer to appear
While I’m watch, watch, watching people pass
Waving through a window, oh
Can anybody see, is anybody waving?

When you’re falling in a forest and there’s nobody around
Do you ever really crash, or even make a sound?
When you’re falling in a forest and there’s nobody around
Do you ever really crash, or even make a sound?
When you’re falling in a forest and there’s nobody around
Do you ever really crash, or even make a sound?
When you’re falling in a forest and there’s nobody around
Do you ever really crash, or even make a sound?
Did I even make a sound?
Did I even make a sound?
It’s like I never made a sound
Will I ever make a sound?

On the outside, always looking in
Will I ever be more than I’ve always been?
‘Cause I’m tap, tap, tapping on the glass
Waving through a window
I try to speak, but nobody can hear
So I wait around for an answer to appear
While I’m watch, watch, watching people pass
Waving through a window, oh
Can anybody see, is anybody waving back at me?

Is anybody waving?
Waving, waving…
