The New World

This song is by Jason Robert Brown and appears on the album Songs For A New World (1997).

WOMAN ONE
A new world calls across the ocean
A new world calls across the sky
A new world whispers in the shadows
Time to fly, time to fly

MAN ONE
It's about one moment
The moment before it all becomes clear
And in that one moment
You start to believe there's nothing to fear

It's about one second
And just when you're on the verge of success
The sky starts to change
And the wind starts to blow
And oh, you're suddenly a stranger
There's no explaining where you stand
And you didn't know
That you sometimes have to go
'Round an unexpected bend
And the road will end

WOMAN ONE
A new world calls for me to follow
A new world waits for my reply
A new world holds me to a promise
Standing by, standing by

WOMAN TWO
It's about one moment
That moment you think you know where you stand
And in that one moment
The things that you're sure of slip from your hand
And you've got one second
To try to be clear, to try to stand tall
But nothing's the same
And the wind starts to blow
And you're suddenly a stranger
In some completely different land
And you thought you knew
But you didn't have a clue
That the surface sometimes cracks
To reveal the tracks
To a new world

MAN TWO
You have a house in the hills
WOMAN TWO
You have a job on the coast
MAN ONE
You find a lover you're sure you believe in
MAN TWO
You've got a pool in the back
WOMAN TWO
You get to the part of your life
MAN ONE
You hold the ring in your hand
MAN TWO
But then the earthquake hits
WOMAN TWO
And the bank closes in
MAN ONE
Then you realize you didn't know anything
MAN ONE, TWO, WOMAN TWO
Nobody told you the best way to steer
When the wind starts to blow

MAN TWO / MAN ONE, WOMAN TWO
And oh, you're suddenly a stranger (All of a sudden)
MAN ONE, TWO, WOMAN TWO
You life is different than you planned
MAN TWO
And you'll have to stay 'til you somehow find a way
MAN ONE, TWO, WOMAN TWO
To be sure of what will be
Then you might be free

WOMAN ONE
A new world crashes down like thunder
A new world charging through the air
..MAN TWO joins:
A new world just beyond the mountain
Waiting there, waiting there

ALL
A new world shattering the silence
There's a new world I'm afraid to see
A new world louder every moment
Come to me, come to me
