What happens next


Lyrics:

WESLEY

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT

WHILE YOU’RE BEATING ME DOWN

WATCHING ME CRY IN PAIN, WHILE

I AM DEFENSELESS

 

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT

ONCE YOU LEFT ME TO BLEED

TURNING FOR ONE LAST LOOK, SEE

I AM SUFFERING

 

DELIVER ME DELIVER ME

 

(WESLEY walks from the Fun House doors, passing by his MOTHER. He looks at her then looks down, then forward. He walks and passes people. Some of the people turn and follow him. They are spirits, while the others that are still human stand still and do not see WESLEY.)

 

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT

CAUSE NO ONE’S COME FOR ME

YOU DON’T GIVE IT A THOUGHT, BUT

I AM TERRIFIED

 

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT

AS I LIE BRUISED AND STILL

YOU MAY SHAKE OFF THE FIGHT, WHEN

I AM WEAKENING

 

DELIVER ME DELIVER ME

 

(Set is black. OBEAH enters behind WESLEY)

 

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT

WHEN I CHOOSE TO GIVE IN

 

TAKING MY OWN LIFE WAS NOT THE ANSWER

NO MATTER HOW MUCH I WAS BEATEN OR SHOVED

IT’S TOO LATE TO TURN BACK WHEN FINALY I KNOW

TO BELIEVE IN MYSELF BECAUSE I AM LOVED

 

 

 

WESLEY                                                                                 ENSEMBLE

I AM LOVED!

I AM LOVED!                                                                         AHHHHHH

I AM SOMEONE TO BE LOVED!                                      AHHHHHH

 

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT

WHEN IT’S YOUR TURN TO DIE?

 

(All of the spirits closest to WESLEY place their hands on his shoulder, leaving room for OBEAH to do the same and prepare to hug him. Those that are not close enough to touch WESLEY directly instead touch the spirit’s shoulder in front of them. WESLEY is in the center-front)

 

…ANYTHING MORE

 

WESELY                                                                                                 ENSEMBLE

HAVE FAITH

 

ANYTHING MORE!

HAVE FAITH

 

(OBEAH places his arms around WESLEY and cradles him. The other spirits reach their arms out to WESLEY, touching each other’s shoulders while some continue to touch WESLEY)

 

THEY CAN’T TAKE FROM ME

 

HAVE FAITH LEAD YOU HOME!

 

ANYTHING MORE!!!
