About The Site

Welcome to Dean's World! This website is a forum for all of my various creative projects. As a writer, musician and artist, I come up with ideas that fall under many different categories of media. Some of them will hopefully make their way to publication, but others will make their way here. I am also always glad to receive feedback, so feel free to contact me through the address listed at the bottom of the page.

"Being Alive", from the musical "Company"

Note: I do not own any aspects of this song.

			What do you get?

			Someone to hold you too close,
			Someone to hurt you too deep,
			Someone to sit in your chair,
			To ruin your sleep.

			Paul: That's true, but there's more to it than that.
			Sarah: Is that all you think there is to it?
			Harry: You've got so many reasons for not being with someone, but
			you haven't got one good reason for being alone.
			Larry: Come on, you're on to something, Bobby. You're on to something.

			Someone to need you too much,
			Someone to know you too well,
			Someone to pull you up short
			And put you through hell.

			David: You see what you look for, you know.
			Joanne: You're not a kid anymore, Robby. I don't think you'll ever
			be a kid again, kiddo.
			Peter: Hey, buddy, don't be afraid it won't be perfect. The only thing
			to be afraid of really is that it won't be.
			Jenny: Don't stop now. Keep going.

			Someone you have to let in,
			Someone whose feelings you spare,
			Someone who, like it or not,
			Will want you to share
			A little, a lot.

			Susan: And what does all that mean?
			Larry: Robert, how do you know so much about it when you've never
			been there?
			Harry: It's much better living it than looking at it, Robert.
			Peter: Add 'em up, Bobby. Add 'em up.

			Someone to crowd you with love,
			Someone to force you to care,
			Someone to make you come through,
			Who'll always be there,
			As frightened as you
			Of being alive,
			Being alive,
			Being alive,
			Being alive.

			Amy: Blow out the candles, Robert, and make a wish. *Want* something!
			Want *something*!

			Somebody, hold me too close,
			Somebody, hurt me too deep,
			Somebody, sit in my chair
			And ruin my sleep
			And make me aware
			Of being alive,
			Being alive.

			Somebody, need me too much,
			Somebody, know me too well,
			Somebody, pull me up short
			And put me through hell
			And give me support
			For being alive,
			Make me alive.

			Make me confused,
			Mock me with praise,
			Let me be used,
			Vary my days.
			But alone is alone, not alive.

			Somebody, crowd me with love,
			Somebody, force me to care,
			Somebody, make me come through,
			I'll always be there,
			As frightened as you,
			To help us survive

			Being alive,
			Being alive,
			Being alive!
