Somewhere in Time (Pre-show song)

Where there is time, there is tommorow.
Somewhere in time all sorrows pass to memory.
And so the end is the beginning,
somewhere in time we are as we're meant to be.
Where there is time, there is a circle.
Somewhere in time the circle yearns to be complete.
Though you may feel this is Illusion
Somewhere in time I know we're certain to meet.
Somewhere in time love is forever.
A love that's here, a love that's now
to last for all time.
Somehow I know this moment's waiting
somewhere in time
Where there is time, there is a circle.
Somewhere in time the circle will be complete
Somewhere in time love is forever
a love that's here, a love that's now
to last for all time.
Somehow I know this moment's waiting
Somewhere in time.

Counting up to Twenty
H.G. Wells:
Childrens choir:
The road we travelled on,   has never been the one with least resistance.   We've made it through the years,   the agony and tears by sheer persistence,   to the edge of a brave new world.   Counting up to twenty has been difficult for some,   but as we learn to count to twenty,   should be easy to get to twenty-one!   A hundred years ago, we really start to show off our invention.   We acquired the clout, to take each other out was our intention.   It's amazing we're all still here!
Counting up to twenty has been difficult for some,   but as we learn to count to twenty,   should be easy to get to twenty-one
Counting up to twenty has been difficult for some,   but as we learn to count to twenty,   should be easy to get to twenty-one
Call me a fool, but I'm a fool with a heart.   I'm an optimistic man, I believe we can make it.   Even though I don't always sleep at night,   waiting for the light to come and wake me.   My thoughts are with the young,   they must be the ones to come and save me.   We just have to let them breathe!
Counting up to twenty, could be difficult for some,   but if we help them count to twenty,   should be easy to get to twenty-one.
Counting up to twenty, could be difficult for some,   but if we help them count to twenty,   should be easy to get to twenty-one.

Open your Eyes
I believe there's an innocence lying undiscovered in me, I'm convinced in this present tense, That it's time to set it free, Join me, let your spirit soar, Join me, come alive!  If you open your eyes, if you open your heart You will be amazed, you'll be surprised, I believe in simplicity, And I can sense that feeling in you, Be assured in humility, the promise will come true, Join me as we rise and sing,  Join me, come alive! If you open your eyes, if you open your heart, You will be amazed, you'll be surprised, Don't be afraid of what you feel in your heart, Don't be rebuked by those who say it'll never happen,  It will happen. Fill yourself with wonder and enchantment, Release the child inside the man, We must do all we can, to reach compassion, If you open your eyes, if you open your heart, Please open your eyes, try to open your heart,  Don't you know you'd be amazed, You will be surprised, Open up your eyes and see!
