[WENDLA]
Something’s started crazy
Sweet and unknown

Something you keep
In a box on the street
Now it’s longing for a home

[ALL]
And who can say what dreams are?

[WENDLA]
Wake me in time to be lonely and sad

[ALL]
And who can say what we are?

[WENDLA]
This is the season for dreaming

And now our bodies are the guilty ones
Who touch
And color the hours

Night won’t breathe
Oh, how we
Fall into silence from the sky

[MELCHIOR & WENDLA]
And whisper some silver reply
Whoa...

[MELCHIOR]
Pulse is gone and racing
All fits and starts

Window by window
You try and look into
This brave new you that you are

[ALL]
And who can say what dreams are?

[MELCHIOR & WENDLA]
Wake me in time to be out in the cold

[ALL]
And who can say what we are?

[MELCHIOR & WENDLA]
This is the reason for dreaming

[ALL]
And now our bodies are the guilty ones
Our touch
Will fill every hour

Huge and dark
Oh, our hearts
Will murmur the blues from on high

Then whisper some silver reply
Whoa...

And now our bodies are the guilty ones
Our touch
Will color the hours

Night won’t breathe
Oh, how we
Fall in silence from the sky

Then whisper some silver reply
Whoa...

And now our bodies are the guilty ones

    General CommentThis is one of the most beautiful pieces of musical theatre ever written. this particular song is about the aftermath of how the two main characters had sex, and their feelings upon it. They felt the passion of each others bodies, and felt love, and passion, and they are almost in shock to what happened still. They say their bodies are the guilty ones because they themselves do not feel guilty. But their bodies are the only things that have any form of change on them. No one can understand the way they feel about each other, and no one should contest them.
