LyricsEdit

Amanda:
I'm high above the city
I'm standing on the ledge
The view from here is pretty
And I step off the edge

And now I'm falling, baby, through the sky, through the sky
I'm falling, baby, through the sky
It's my calling, baby, don't you cry, don't you cry
I'm falling down through the sky

Toward the street that I'm from
Oh, Broadway, here I come
Broadway, here I come

The pressure, it increases
The closer that I get
I could almost go to pieces
But I'm not quite there yet

See I've been brave in crazy weather
Drowning out my cries
I pull myself together
I'm focused on the prize

I'm falling, baby, through the sky, through the sky
I'm falling, baby, through the sky
It's my calling, baby, don't you cry, don't you cry
I'm falling down through the sky

It's a tune you can't hum
Oh, Broadway here I come
Mmmmm....

Will I remain the same or will I change a little bit?
Will I feel broken or totally complete?
Will I retain my name when I'm the biggest, hugest hit?
Or will I blend in with the rest of the street?

The people all are pointing
I bet they'd never guess
That the saint that they're anointing
Is frightened of the mess

But even though I fear it
I'm playing all my cards
Baby, you are gonna hear it
When I give them my regards

I'm falling, baby, through the sky, through the sky
I'm falling, baby, through the sky
It's my calling, baby, don't you cry, don't you cry
I'm falling down through the sky

And I refuse to go numb
Oh, Broadway, here I come
Broadway, here I come
Broadway, here I come
Broadway, Broadway, here I come
Here I come!

And the last thing I hear
As the impact grows near
Is it a scream or a cheer?
Well, never mind, I'll never find out
'Cause Broadway, I am here!
