A SECOND OPINION

 

SONG. A SECOND OPINION

 

LUCY.

Doctor, you need a swift cure,

I can see in your eyes, thereís a heart that beats pure,

Somehow youíre under a spell,

But deep down thereís good.

Only someone who loves you could tell.

 

RENFIELD.

Go back to your life and your friends.

Why rescue a heart that is dying?

Why stay as the curtain descends?

All hope of redemptionís mistaken

My soul has been taken

Iím already lost.

 

LUCY ( swings her locket in front of his eyes).

A symbol of faith

Love locked in a shell

It makes me feel safe

It could make you feel well

Recall who you were

And what you should be

 

RENFIELD.

All else is a blur

I cannot see me.

 

LUCY.

Recall what you are

And open your eyes

And witness that I love you.

 

RENFIELD.

How could you love me?

 

LUCY.

†††††††††††††††††††††††††† Itís true.

Evermore if you waken and come back to you.

Fight off the hold on your mind.

You are loved much more strongly

Than any hypnosis could bind.

RENFIELD.

What thing, what desire

Could save? What could

Change my mind?

 

††††††††† Instrumental. He watches the locket swing.

 

LUCY (spoken). Watch it swinging, there. It has the power of love.

 

††††††††† Presently, he looks at it more closely, suddenly grabbing it, and unfolding it in his fingers until it assumes the shape of a key.

 

RENFIELD (spoken). I remember! I remember who I am!

 

LUCY and RENFIELD.

I never thought this could be!

I found the solution in loveís hidden key!

The clouds are all rolling away.

A chapter is closed but the rest of our lives start today!
