ZOE:
Why should I play this game of pretend?
Remembering through a secondhand sorrow?
Such a great son and wonderful friend
Oh don't the tears just pour

I can curl up and hide in my room
There in my bed still sobbing tomorrow
I could give in to all of the gloom
But tell me, tell me what for

Why should I have a heavy heart?
Why should I start to break in pieces?
Why should I go and fall apart for you?

Why should I play the grieving girl and
Lie saying that I miss you
And that my world has gone dark without your light
I will sing no requiem tonight

LARRY: (spoken) I'm going to bed

CYNTHIA: (spoken) Come sit with me

LARRY: Cynthia

CYNTHIA: For five minutes?

LARRY: I'm exhausted

CYNTHIA: You know Larry, at some point you're going to have to start-

LARRY: Not tonight. Please. I'll leave the light on for you.

LARRY: (sung)
I gave you the world, you threw it away,
Leaving these broken pieces behind you
Everything wasted, nothing to say
So I can sing no requiem

CYNTHIA:
I hear your voice, feel you near
Within these words I finally find you
And now that I know that you are still here
I will sing no requiem tonight

ZOE & LARRY: Why should I have a heavy heart?

ZOE:
Why should I say I'll keep you with me?
Why should I go and fall apart for you?
Why should I play the grieving girl and lie saying that I miss you
And that my world has gone dark without your light
I will sing no requiem
Tonight
'Cuz when the villains fall, the kingdoms never weep
No one lights a candle to remember
No, no one mourns at all
They lay them down to sleep
So don't tell me that I didn't have it right
Don't tell me that it wasn't black and white
After all you've put me through, don't say it wasn't true
That you were not the monster that I knew,
'Cuz I cannot play the grieving girl and lie
Saying that I miss you and that my world has gone dark

LARRY: I will sing no requiem

CYNTHIA: I will sing no requiem

ZOE: I will sing no requiem tonight
