"Wait For Me II"

[HERMES]
The meanest dog you’ll ever meet -
He ain’t the hound dog in the street
He bares his teeth and tears your skin
But brother, that’s the worst of him
Now the dog you really got to dread
Is the one that howls inside your head
It's him whose howling drives men mad
And a mind to its undoing

[ORPHEUS & EURYDICE]
Wait for me, I'm coming
Wait, I'm coming with you
Wait for me, I'm coming too
I'm coming too

[COMPANY]
Show her the way so we can see
Show her the way the world can be
If you can do it, so can she
If she can do it, so can we
Show her the way
Show her the way the world can be
Show her the way so we believe
We will follow where you lead
We will follow with you
Show her the way

[PERSEPHONE, spoken]
Think they’ll make it?

[HADES, spoken]
I don’t know

[PERSEPHONE, spoken]
Hades, you let them go

[HADES, spoken]
I let them try

[PERSEPHONE, spoken]
Then how ‘bout you and I?
Are we gonna try again?

[HADES, spoken]
It’s time for spring
We’ll try again next fall

[PERSEPHONE, spoken]
Wait for me?

[HADES, spoken]
I will

[COMPANY]
Wait for me, I’m coming
Wait, I’m coming with you
Wait for me, I’m coming too
I’m coming too

[THE FATES]
Who are you?
Who do you think you are?
Who are you?
Who are you to lead her?
Who are you to lead them?
Who are you to think that you can hold your head up higher than your leather bag?

[HERMES, spoken]
You got a lonesome road to walk
It ain’t along the railroad track
And it ain’t along the black-top tar
You’ve walked a hundred times before
I’ll tell you where the real road lies:
Between your ears, behind your eyes
That is the path to Paradise
Likewise, the road to ruin

[COMPANY]
Wait for me, I’m coming
Wait, I’m coming with you
Wait for me, I’m coming too
Wait for me, I'm coming
Wait, I’m coming with you
Wait for me, I’m coming
Show her the way

[EURYDICE]
I'm coming wait for me
I hear the walls repeating
The falling off our feet and
It sounds like drumming
And we are not alone
I hear the rocks and stones
Echoing our song
I'm coming
