I have about 500 million things to do...  
Yet I don't want to do any of them.

I need to pick a song... for Open Mic Night...



Corner of the Sky (Pippin)

EVERYTHING HAS ITS SEASON
EVERYTHING HAS ITS TIME
SHOW ME A REASON AND I'LL SOON SHOW YOU A RHYME
CATS FIT ON THE WINDOWSILL
CHILDREN FIT IN THE SNOW
WHY DO I FEEL I DON'T FIT IN ANYWHERE I GO?


RIVERS BELONG WHERE THEY CAN RAMBLE
EAGLES BELONG WHERE THEY CAN FLY
I'VE GOT TO BE WHERE MY SPIRITS CAN RUN FREE
GOT TO FIND MY CORNER OF THE SKY

EVERY MAN HAS HIS DAYDREAMS
EVERY MAN HAS HIS GOALS
PEOPLE LIKE THE WAY DREAMS HAVE OF STICKING TO THE SOUL
THUNDERCLOUDS HAVE THEIR LIGHTNING
NIGHTINGALES HAVE THEIR SONG
AND DON'T YOU SEE I WANT MY LIFE TO BE SOMETHING MORE THAN LONG

RIVERS BELONG WHERE THEY CAN RAMBLE
EAGLES BELONG WHERE THEY CAN FLY
I'VE GOT TO BE WHERE MY SPIRITS CAN RUN FREE
GOT TO FIND MY CORNER OF THE SKY

SO MANY MEN SEEM DESTINED
TO SETTLE FOR SOMETHING SMALL
BUT I WON'T REST UNTIL I KNOW I'LL HAVE IT ALL
SO DON'T ASK WHERE I'M GOING
JUST LISTEN WHEN I'M GONE
AND FAR AWAY YOU'LL HEAR ME SINGING SOFTLY TO THE DAWN:

RIVERS BELONG WHERE THEY CAN RAMBLE
EAGLES BELONG WHERE THEY CAN FLY
I'VE GOT TO BE WHERE MY SPIRITS CAN RUN FREE
GOT TO FIND MY CORNER OF THE SKY...

With You (Pippin)

MY DAYS ARE BRIGHTER THAN MORNING AIR
EVERGREEN PINE AND AUTUMN BLUE
BUT ALL MY DAYS WERE TWICE AS FAIR
IF I COULD SHARE
MY DAYS WITH YOU

MY NIGHTS ARE WARMER THAN FIRECOALS
INCENSE AND STARS AND SMOKE BAMBOO
BUT NIGHTS WERE WARM BEYOND COMPARE
IF I COULD SHARE
MY NIGHTS WITH YOU

TO DANCE IN MY DREAMS
TO SHINE WHEN I NEED THE SUN
WITH YOU
TO HOLD ME WHEN DREAMS ARE DONE

AND OH...
MY DEAREST LOVE
IF YOU WILL TAKE MY LOVE
THEN ALL MY DREAMS ARE TRULY BEGUN

AND TIME WEAVES RIBBONS OF MEMORY
TO SWEETEN LIFE WHEN YOUTH IS THROUGH
BUT I WOULD NEED NO MEMORIES THERE
IF I COULD SHARE
MY LIFE WITH YOU.

Morning Glow (Pippin)

MORNING GLOW, MORNING GLOW
STARTS TO GLIMMER WHEN YOU KNOW
WINDS OF CHANGE ARE SET TO BLOW
AND SWEEP THIS WHOLE LAND THROUGH
MORNING GLOW IS LONG PAST DUE

MORNING GLOW FILL THE EARTH
COME AND SHINE FOR ALL YOUR WORTH
WE'LL BE PRESENT AT THE BIRTH
OF OLD FAITH LOOKING NEW
MORNING GLOW IS LONG PAST DUE

OH, MORNING GLOW, I'D LIKE TO HELP YOU GROW

WE SHOULD HAVE STARTED LONG AGO

SO, MORNING GLOW ALL DAY LONG
WHILE WE SING TOMORROW'S SONG
NEVER KNEW WE COULD BE SO STRONG
BUT NOW IT'S VERY CLEAR

MORNING GLOW IS ALMOST HERE
MORNING GLOW BY YOUR LIGHT
WE CAN MAKE A NEW DAY BRIGHT
AND THE PHANTOMS OF THE NIGHT
WILL FADE INTO THE PAST
MORNING GLOW IS HERE

AT LAST

Extraordinary (Pippin)

PATCHING THE ROOF AND PITCHING THE HAY
IS NOT MY IDEA OF A PERFECT DAY
WHEN YOU'RE EXTRAORDINARY
YOU GOTTA DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS

I'M NOT THE TYPE WHO LOSES SLEEP
OVER THE SIZE OF THE COMPOST HEAP
WHEN YOU'RE EXTRAORDINARY
YOU THINK ABOUT EXTRAORDINARY THINGS

THAT'S THE REASON I'LL NEVER BE
THE KIND OF MAN WHO DWELLS
ON HOW MOTHS GOT INTO THE TAPESTRY
OR WHY THE DUNGEON SMELLS

OH, IT'S HARD TO FEEL SPECIAL
IT'S HARD TO FEEL BIG
FEEDING THE TURTLE AND WALKING THE PIG
IT'S SO SECONDARY
TO SOMEONE WHO IS VERY
EXTRAORDINARY LIKE ME

IF THE MOAT WON'T STOP LEAKING
AND THE GOAT WON'T STOP SHRIEKING
AND THE GRIFFIN KEEPS LOSING ITS HAIR
IF THE WEST WING IS ROTTING
AND OUR BEST WINE IS CLOTTING
WELL, I'M TERRIBLY SORRY BUT I DON'T CARE


I'VE GOT TO BE SOMEONE WHO LIVES
ALL OF HIS LIFE IN SUPERLATIVES
WHEN YOU'RE EXTRAORDINARY
YOU GOTTA DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS

THE FACT THAT I'M DIFFERENT IS EASY TO SEE
SO WHY DOESN'T ANYBODY KNOW IT BUT ME?
I'M EXTRAORDINARY
I NEED TO DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS

EVERY SO OFTEN A MAN HAS A DAY
HE TRULY CAN CALL HIS
WELL, HERE I AM TO SEIZE MY DAY
IF SOMEONE COULD JUST TELL WHERE THE HELL IT IS

OH GIVE ME MY CHANCE, AND GIVE ME MY WINGS
AND DON'T MAKE ME THINK ABOUT EVERYDAY THINGS
THEY'RE UNNECESSARY
TO SOMEONE WHO IS VERY
EXTRAORDINARY
LIKE ME!

Obviously I wanna pick a song from Pippin... but which?
