Come Alive

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Verse 1: P.T. Barnum]
You stumble through your days
Got your head hung low
Your skies’ a shade of grey
Like a zombie in a maze
You’re asleep inside
But you can shake away

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Pre-Chorus: P.T. Barnum]
‘Cause you’re just a dead man walking
Thinking that’s your only option
But you can flip the switch and brighten up your darkest day
Sun is up and the color’s blinding
Take the world and redefine it
Leave behind your narrow mind
You’ll never be the same

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Pre-Chorus: P.T. Barnum]
Come alive, come alive
Go and ride your light
Let it burn so bright
Reaching up
To the sky
And it’s open wide
You’re electrified

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Chorus: P.T. Barnum]
When the world becomes a fantasy
And you’re more than you could ever be
‘Cause you’re dreaming with your eyes wide open
And you know you can’t go back again
To the world that you were living in
‘Cause you’re dreaming with your eyes wide open
So, come alive!

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Verse 2: P.T. Barnum]
I see it in your eyes
You believe that lie
That you need to hide your face
Afraid to step outside
So you lock the door
But don’t you stay that way

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Lettie Lutz]
No more living in those shadows
You and me we know how that goes

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Lord of Leeds]
‘Cause once you see it, oh you’ll never, never be the same

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Both]
We’ll be the light that’s shining
Bottle up and keep on trying

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[All]
You can prove there’s more to you

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[P.T. Barnum]
You cannot be afraid

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Pre-Chorus: Ensemble]
Come alive, come alive
Go and ride your light
Let it burn so bright
Reaching up
To the sky
And it’s open wide
You’re electrified

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Chorus: Ensemble]
When the world becomes a fantasy
And you’re more than you could ever be
‘Cause you’re dreaming with your eyes wide open
And we know we can’t be go back again
To the world that we were living in
‘Cause we’re dreaming with our eyes wide open
So, come alive!

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Ensemble]
Come one!
Come all!
Come in!
Come on!

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Anne Wheeler]
To anyone who’s bursting with a dream

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Ensemble]
Come one!
Come all!
You hear
The call

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[P.T. Barnum]
To anyone who’s searching for a way to break free

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Ensemble]
Break free!
Break free!

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Chorus: Ensemble and P.T. Barnum]
When the world becomes a fantasy
And you’re more than you could ever be
‘Cause you’re dreaming with your eyes wide open
And we know we can’t be go back again
To the world that we were living in
‘Cause we’re dreaming with our eyes wide open
(Hey!)

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Chorus: Ensemble and P.T. Barnum]
When the world becomes a fantasy
And you’re more than you could ever be
‘Cause you’re dreaming with your eyes wide open
And we know we can’t be go back again
To the world that we were living in
‘Cause we’re dreaming with our eyes wide open

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Outro: Ensemble and P.T. Barnum]
‘Cause we’re dreaming with our eyes wide open

So come alive! (Come alive!)

A Million Dreams

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Verse 1: Young P.T.]
I close my eyes and I can see
The world that’s waiting up for me
That I call my own
Through the dark, through the door
Through where no one’s been before
But it feels like home

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Pre-Chorus: Young P.T.]
They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy
They can say, they can say I’ve lost my mind
I don’t care, I don’t care, so call me crazy
We can live in a world that we design

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Chorus: Young P.T.]
‘Cause every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it’s gonna take
A million dreams for the world we’re gonna make

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Verse 2: Young P.T.]
There’s a house we can build
Every room inside is filled
With things from far away
The special things I compile
Each one there to make you smile
On a rainy day

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Pre-Chorus: Young P.T.]
They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy
They can say, they can say we’ve lost our minds
I don’t care, I don’t care if they call us crazy
Runaway to a world that we design

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Chorus: P.T. Barnum]
Every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it’s gonna take
A million dreams for the world we’re gonna make

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Bridge: Charity Barnum, with P.T. Barnum]
However big, however small
Let me be part of it all
Share your dreams with me
You may be right, you may be wrong
But say that you’ll bring me along
To the world you see
To the world I close my eyes to see
I close my eyes to see

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Chorus: P.T. Barnum, Charity Barnum, together]
Every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
A million dreams, a million dreams
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it’s gonna take
A million dreams for the world we’re gonna make

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>[Outro: P.T. Barnum & Charity Barnum]
For the world we’re gonna make
