Lovett:
Easy now,
Hush, love, hush,
Don't distress yourself,
What's your rush?
Keep your thoughts
Nice and lush,
Wait.

Hush, love, hush,
Think it through.
Once it bubbles, then
What's to do?
Watch it close.
Let it brew.
Wait.

I've been thinkin' flowers,
Maybe daisies,
To brighten up the room!
Don't you think some flowers,
Pretty daisies,
Might relieve the gloom?
Ah, wait,
Love, wait.

Slow, love, slow.
Time's so fast.
Now goes quickly, see
Now it's past!
Soon will come,
Soon will last.
Wait.

Don't you know,
Silly man?
Half the fun is to
Plan the plan!
All good things
Come to those who can
Wait.

Gillyflowers, maybe,
'Stead of daisies...
I dunno though...
What do you think?

    General CommentI love singing along to this... there's hardly any song that I don't like singing to in the Sweeney Todd soundtrack though :) I like how she soothes him here... And it's also interesting that Sweeney actually listens to her. He does wait until a good moment to slit the judge's throat... but in the process was delayed by Antony... but oh well~

    General CommentThis song would be sooo hard to sing because you're singing the melody and no other instrument is playing along with you. Props to Helena.
