HIM:
MAYBE I HAD TOO MUCH WINE.
SOMETHING’S KEEPING ME AWAKE.
NOTHING’S HAPPENING ONLINE:
ALL IT DOES IS FEED THE ACHE.
I THINK ABOUT YOU ALL THE TIME-
WONDER IF YOU’RE MISSING ME.
THOUGHT I’D GIVE YOUR BELL A CHIME,
SEE IF YOU WERE FREE…?

NO STRINGS
NO TIES
NO PROMISES TONIGHT
JUST YOU
AND ME:
MY DARKNESS AND YOUR LIGHT.
COME OVER.
COME OVER.

I WANNA TAKE YOU IN MY ARMS
KISS YOU LIKE I’VE DONE BEFORE.
SLIP MY HANDS BENEATH YOUR CLOTHES
TAUNT YOU ‘TIL YOU BEG FOR MORE.
WE COULD FALL INTO MY BED
LOVE EACH OTHER ALL NIGHT LONG
SLEEP AWAY OUR LONELINESS.
HOW COULD THAT BE WRONG?
(SHE comes on stage. HE sees her, reaches for her. They sing.)

BOTH
NO RULES
NO LIES
NO NEED TO JUSTIFY.
IT’S YOU
AND ME:
WE’LL WATCH THE WORLD SLIP BY.

HIM
COME OVER.
COME OVER.

(THEY dance– without even touching–

I FEEL YOU BESIDE ME:
A YEARNING,
A DISTANT MEMORY.
LOOK HOW THE MOON LIGHTS UP YOUR HAIR.
AS IF YOU WERE THERE…

NEED TO BE WITH YOU AGAIN.
DYING FOR FAMILIAR TOUCH.
DON’T YOU MISS ME ON YOUR SKIN?
DON’T YOU THINK OF ME SO MUCH?
DON’T YOU?
DON’T YOU?
DON’T YOU THINK OF ME SO MUCH?
OH — OH OH —

HIM
NO PAST

HER
NO PAST

HIM
NO CRIES

HER
NO CRIES

HIM
NO TALK OF RIGHT OR WRONG.

BOTH
JUST YOU
AND ME:

HIM
PRETENDING WE BELONG.

(–until SHE spins offstage, and we realize: this was HIS fantasy and he is alone, wanting her. He picks up his phone, slowly dials throughout…)

COME OVER.
COME OVER.
COME OVER.
