Under Pressure, a song orignally by Queen, performed by the cast of Smash in The Tonys.
Lyrics: Ivy: Pressure pushing down on me Pressing down on you, no man ask for
Karen: Under pressure that burns a building down Splits a family in two Puts people on streets
Jimmy: It's the terror of knowing What this world is about Watching some good friends Screaming
Jimmy and Karen: "Let me out!"
Ana: Pray tomorrow takes me higher Pressure on people - people on streets
Tom: Chippin' around, kick my brains 'round the floor These are the days - it never rains but it pours
Julia: People on streets - people on streets
Karen: It's the terror of knowing What this world is about Watching some good friends Screaming
Karen and Jimmy: "Let me out!"
Ivy: Pray tomorrow gets me higher and higher and higher
Karen: Pressure on people - people on streets
Eileen: Turned away from it all like a blind man Sat on a fence but it don't work
Derek: Keep coming up with love but it's so slashed and torn
Jimmy: Why, why, why?
Sam: Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking
Ivy: Can't we give ourselves one more chance?
Jimmy: Why can't we give love that one more chance?
Karen: Why can't we give love, give love, give love, give love
Karen and Jimmy: Give love, give love, give love, give love?
All: 'Cause love's such an old-fashioned word And love dares you to care for The people on the edge of the night And love dares you to change our way of Caring about ourselves This is our last dance This is our last dance This is ourselves Under pressure Under pressure Pressure
