DONíT BE SCARED

 

SAPPHI.

If you had a chance to show the world youíre made of something would you take it?

Risking all the things you love but getting what you wanted even so?

Maybe.

Would you wanna take your life to where theyíre rolling dice and would you stake it?

Hesitating, thinking that there might be nothing there in you to show.

 

Donít be scared,

Just look inside yourself.

It is there, you just

Believe in yourself.

 

LUCY. (spoken) But if you canítÖ

 

(sung) All the world is full of folk who never lost and never won a penny.

Easy to be one of them and think youíll just be happy when they deal.

And worse...

Folks who put their money down and lost it all from recklessness are many.

You donít have to do that, but then would you be denying what you feel?

 

SAPPHI.

Would I go

To Transylvania?

 

LUCY/SAPPHI.

(You/I) donít know what might

Await (you/me) in that neck of the woods.

 

COCO.

Donít go away, Sapphi,

Stay here and be happy.

Risking your life for a

Boyís not the way youíll sur-

 

vive. Just be smart, use your

Head not your heart; lose your

Boy if you have to but

Donít leave me here. Stay a-

SAPPHI. Ö I

live!

Just look into my eyes!

I donít know what might

Become of me if you go away!

Wonít be scaredÖ

 

Mother, did you ever love a man enough to follow him forever?

Donít be so rash, Sapphi.

 

 

Didnít you love father? Would you make a journey just to see his face?

Stay home, make cash!

I canít!

 

When you find a man thatís got a heart so full of love, a head so clever

Thereís more where he came from.

 

 

And the call to hunt a vampire, wouldnít you be joining in the chase?

Donít chase your way intoÖ

 

Dangerís ev-

írywhere around us!

Dangerís ev-

írywhere around us!

 

Donít you see? I must bring

Jonathan back!

No!

(to audience, spoken)

Donít you agree?

 

 

 

NARRATOR. (after audience response, to audience)

Thatís half the story.

If it was you

Would you stay or risk it too?

Youíre all brave

But you are young and havenít much to fear.

Flying the nest after year after year afterÖ

 

 

SAPPHI.

COCO.

LUCY and CHORUS.

NARRATOR.

Jonathanís in danger; I must put myself in danger to be with him.

 

 

Öyear!

 

Oh, Iím so scared, Sapphi!

Donít be scared, Sapphi!

Time to be a woman, not a girl who never really makes her mind up.

Could be that I die or suffer if I go alone so far away.

 

 

 

 

COCO.

 

LUCY.

 

NARRATOR and CHORUS.

 

Oh! Donít be scared, Coco!

Easy to give up and die, the harder partís deciding you will live!

Oh! Donít be scared, Coco!

Got a mother, got a friend, the people all around me are the living.

 

 

 

 

 

 

NARRATOR.

 

If you go, Iím going!

If you go, Iím going!

Maybe you donít have to leave them here, theyíll come if all of you are lined up.

Could it be that nowís the time and nothing stays the same beyond today?

 

 

 

 

 

Whatís a friend in times of crisis, time to hear the call and time to give!

 

 

 

 

NARRATOR and CHORUS.

Dangerís everywhere around them!

 

 

Dangerís everywhere around them!

 

 

 

 

Donít be scared! Weíre ready!

Ready to go!

Donít be scared! Weíre ready!

Ready to go!

Donít be scared! Weíre ready!

Ready to go!

Donít be scared! Weíre ready!

Ready to go!

 

 

 

 

 

SAPPHI, LUCY, COCO.

NARRATOR, CHORUS.

Somewhere there is treasure in a castle far away in Transylvania.

 

 

No! Donít be scared, Sapphi!

Somewhere there are people that we love and want to fetch back to our side.

 

And more.

No! Donít be scared, Lucy!

Somewhere on the journey is the danger of an evil-hearted mania.

 

 

No! Donít be scared, Coco!

Somewhere out in front of us is European countryside so wide!

 

 

Somewhere out in front of you, adventurous and magical butÖ

Weíre not scared,

Weíre all together.

Weíre not scared,

Weíre all together.

Why be scared

When weíre together all the night and day?
