Roger
Who do you think you are?
Barging in on me and my guitar
Little girl - hey
The door is that way
You better go you know
The fire's out anyway
Take your powder - take your candle
Your sweet whisper
I just can't handle
Well take your hair in the moonlight
Your brown eyes - goodbye, goodnight
I should tell you I should tell you
I should tell you I should - no!
Another time - another place
Our temperature would climb
There'd be a long embrace
We'd do another dance
It'd be another play
Looking for romance?
Come back another day
Another day

Mimi
The heart may freeze or it can burn
The pain will ease if I can learn
There is no future
There is no past
I live this moment as my last
There's only us
There's only this
Forget regret
Or life is yours to miss
No other road
No other way
No day but today

Roger
Excuse me if I'm off track
But if you're so wise
Then tell me - why do you need smack?
Take your needle
Take your fancy prayer
And don't forget
Get the moonlight out of your hair
Long ago - you might've lit up my heart
But the fire's dead - ain't never ever gonna start
Another time - another place
The words would only rhyme
We'd be in outer space
It'd be another song
We'd sing another way
You wanna prove me wrong?
Come back another day
Another day

Mimi
There's only yes
Only tonight
We must let go
To know what's right
No other course
No other way
No day but today

Mimi & Others Roger
I can't control Control your temper
My destiny She doesn't see
I trust my soul Who says that there's a soul
My only goal is just
To be Just let me be
There's only now Who do you think you are?
There's only here
Give in to love Barging in on me and my
Or live in fear guitar
No other path Little girl, hey
No other way The door is that way
No day but today The fire's out anyway

All
No day but today Take your powder, take your candle
No day but today Take your brown eyes, your pretty smile
Your silhouette
No day but today Another time, another place
Another rhyme, a warm embrace
No day but today Another dance, another way
Another chance, another day
No day but today

    General Commentthis song, along with most powerful musical theatre songs, has to be taken out of its context from just "Rent" and brought into the real world. the most influential lyrics, sung by Mimi, are really just amazing. "There is no future/there is no past/i live this moment as my last/there's only this/there's only us/forget regret/or life is yours to miss/no other road/no other way/no day but today" She is saying, to Roger and thus, to us, that you have to live for the moment in life. and if you don't, life will pass you by and you will realize late in your life how much more you could have enjoyed your childhood and your younger years. "no day but today"-really REALLY powerful
