Songs SimLit style

my SimLit is a bit more unusual then the most. As well with what’s called “found-material” in other words epistolary. You know like the court transcript from a Stephen King novel? Dolores Claiborne or in Bram Stroker’s Dracula or Frankstien. I also use another medium and that is songs. And I use a bunch of different songs from Les Miserables musical, from Disney movies, and from other sources. You don’t need to know the context behind the songs at this point but if you want to know you can just go read my SimLit.

first song (the first of three songs sang in Gen 2- the other two songs are sung by others)

There was a time when men were kind/when their voices were soft and their worlds inviting
2.6.16

There was a time when love was blind/ and the world was a song and the song was exciting

2.6.17

There was a time

Then it all went wrong

I dreamed a dream in time gone by when hope was

high and life worth living

I dreamed that love would never die

I dreamed that God would be forgiving

*

Then I was young and unafraid

dreams were made used and wasted

There was no ransom to be paid

No song unsung no wine untasted

2.6.21

But tigers come at night

with their voices as soft as thunder

as they tear your hope apart

as they turn your dream to shame


He spend a summer at my side

he filled my days with endless wonder

He took my childhood in his stride

but he was gone when autumn came
2.6.23

and still I dream he will come to me

that we’ll live the years together

But there are dreams that cannot be

and storms we cannot weather

2.6.24

I had a dream my life would be

so different from this hell I’m living

so different now from what it seemed

now life has killed the dream I dream
2.6.25

*note the “God” I use in this context is my Simself whom in the good religion is the Queen of Heaven God but there’s several Disney heroines in the Pantheon with various roles to play -ie Ariel is the god of performing arts and Wendy is the goddess of mothers.

Two songs in this one - it doesn’t matter the context but it’s two people singing the song (they will have appearances in the actual song in 1940s clothing) :

Disney’s Pochantas’ “cut song” of "If I never knew you:

Jacob:
I f I never knew you
If I never felt this love
Scene 2.14.4
Scene 2.14.5

I would have no inkling of
How precious Life can be
Scene 2.14.6-7

if I never held you
I would never have a clue
how at last I find in you
the missing part of me

In this world so full for fear
full of rage and lies
Scene 2.14 9-10
Scene 2.14.11

I can see the truth so clear
in your eyes so dry your eyes

and I’m so grateful to you
I’d have lived my whole life though
Lost Forever if I never knew you

Hannah:
I thought our love would be so beautiful
somehow we make the whole world bright

I never knew that fear and hate could be so strong





All they leaved us were these whispers in the night
But still my heart is saying we were right
For-

Both
If I never knew you (there’s no moment I regret

Scene 2.14.20

If I never felt this love (since the moment that we met)
Scene 2.14.20.5
Scene 2.14.21

I would have no inkling of (if our time has gone to past)
How Precious Life can be (I’d lived at last)
Scene 2.14.6-7

Lion King II: Simba’s Pride: Love Will Find a Away

Hannah:
In a perfect world

One we never known
we would never need
to face the world alone

They can have the world

we’ll create our own




I may not be brave or strong or smart
but somewhere in my secret heart

I know love will find a way
Anywhere I go, I’m home
if you are there beside me


Like dark turning into day
somehow we’ll come through
Now that I found you
Love will find a way

Jacob:
I was so afraid, now I realize

love is never wrong
and so it never dies

there’s a perfect world
shinning in your eyes

Both
and if only they could feel it too
the happiness I feel with you

They know’d love will find a way
Anywhere we go, we’re home
if we are there together


Like dark turning into day
somehow we’ll come through
Now that I found you
Love will find a way

Gen 3-5 songs will be posted tomorrow!

The only song in Gen 3 it’s song by David and America (America is a child of Hannah and Jacob above) The F.R.I.E.N.D.S theme song

So no one told you life was going to be this way

your job’s a joke, you’re broke
Interlude 3.3 Scene 2

and you’re love life is D.O.A

It’s like you’re always stuck in 2nd gear/it hasn’t been your day your, month or even your year


I’ll be there for you
(when the rain starts to pour)

Interlude 3.3 Scene 5

I’ll be there for you
(like I have been before)

I’ll be there for you('Cause you’re there for me too)

Interlude 3.3 Scene 8



You’re still in bed at 10 and work began at eight

You’ve burned your breakfast, so far things are going great

You’re mother warned you there’d be days like these/

But she didn’t tell you when the world has brought you down to your knees that

'll be there for you
(when then rain starts to pour)
I’ll be there for you
(Like I’v been there before)
I’ll be there for you
('Cause you’re there for me too)

No one could ever know me

No one could ever see me







Seems you’re the only one who knows what it’s like to be me

Someone to face the day with, make it through all the rest with

Someone I’ll always laugh with
Even at my worst, I’m best with you, yeah!






It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear
When it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year


I’ll be there for you
(when then rain starts to pour)
I’ll be there for you
(Like I’v been there before)
I’ll be there for you
('Cause you’re there for me too)


I’ll be there for you
I’ll be there for you
I’ll be there for you
('Cause you’re there for me too)

Gen 4 song: The Pierces’ Secret aka the song from Pretty Little Liars. The Swansons don’t show up until near the end. But it’s mostly about a “gossip chain related to Swansons”. But it does have several other characters involved. Note: This is first of 2 times in the Swanson SimLit which causes nightmares for supporting characters (or a particular rival)

Got a secret?/Can you keep it?/


Locket it in your pocket it/


takin’ this one to the grave

if I show you, then I know you wouldn’t tell what I said/


since two can keep a secret if one of them is dead

Why do you smile like you been told a secret


Now you’re telling lies/'cause you sworn to keep it

No one keeps a secret, no one keeps a secret


why when we do our darkest deeds/

do we tell/

They burn in our brains and become a living hell


'cause everybody tells, everybody tells

Got a secret/can you keep it?/swear this one you’ll save/lock it in your pocket
takin’ this one to the grave


If I show you, then I know you wouldn’t tell what I said

since two can keep a secret/if one of them is dead



Look into my eyes/now you’re getting sleepy

are you hypnotized by the secrets you’re keeping?

I know what you’re keeping, I know what you’re keeping

Got a secret, can you keep it?


swear this one you;ll save/lock it in your pocket

takin’ this one to the grave


if I show you, then I know you wouldn’t tell what I said

since two can keep a secret

if one of them is dead

Yes two can keep a secret if one of them is dead

Uploading: Interlude 4.2 Scene 4.4.8.5.png…

Yes two can keep a secret if one of them is dead



Gen 5 song part 1: Elizabeth Swanson is the main singer but her two daughters (Gen 5) are the background singers. Since it’s from Juliet’s POV Elizabeth is labeled as “mom”

Mom " If there’s a prize for rotten judgement


I guess I already won that

No man’s is worth the aggravation

That’s ancient history been there

done that "

Hailey and me

Who’d do you think you’re kidding?/ He’s the earth and heaven to you!/try to keep it hidden, Honey we can see right through you/Girl, you can’t conceal it/we know how you feel and thinkin’ of."


Mom " No chance no way. I wouldn’t say "

Hailey and I

" You keep on denying/who you are and how you’re feeling, Baby we aren’t buying, hon, we saw you hit the ceiling Mom: “Oh no” “Face it like a grown up, when are you going to own up that you got, got, got it bad?”


Mom
" whoa , No chance no way, I wouldn’t say no, no "

Hailey and I
" Give up and give in, check the grin, you’re in love "


Mom

Hailey and I
" You’re doing flips/read our lips you’re in love"

Three of us:
" you’re way off base ( shoo-do, shoo-do, ooh)
I wouldn’t say it (she wouldn’t say it)
Get off my case (sha-da, sha-da)
I wouldn’t say it:"


Hailey and I
" Girl don’t be proud, it’s okay you’re in love "

Mom
" At least, out loud, I wouldn’t say I’m in loove "

Hailey and I
" Shoo-do, shoo-do, ooh
Sha-la-la-,la-la-la, ah "

This is the 2nd (of three) songs for Gen 5 Juliet is the one singing


" I’m not Snow White but I’m lost inside this forest

I’m not Red Riding Hood but I think the wolves have got me


don’t want the stilettos’ I’m not Cinderella
Interlude 5.1 Scene 8

I don’t need a knight so baby take off all your armor

You be the Beast, and I will be the Beauty, Beauty/who need true love when you love me truly? I want it all but I want you more

Will you wake me up if I bite your poison apple?

Take me, to, take me to, take me to Wonderland

Wonderland, Wonderland

When


I lay my head down to go to sleep at night

My dreams consist of things that will make you want to hide

Don’t lock me in your tower/


show me your magic power

I’m not afraid of a little bit of danger, danger

You want the same as I, I, so stop pretending,

thoughts about the SimLit songs so far?

This is the 2nd to last song in Gen 5 song by characters (the first person is Cousin Sergio II… but it also involves, Juliet, Romeo, Elizabeth( Maternal grandmother), Hailey (Juliet’s twin) Wyatt ( Materneal Grandfather), Cameron (step-grandfather aka Wyatt’s husband), Paternal grandpa Berjsne and Aunt Berjsen, Cousin Raven and . jaw music theme guest star Tony Corrensi.

It’s also a montage of what happened over three years or so.
Come on stop your crying


it will be alright


just take my hand and hold it tight

I will protect you from all around you


I will be here

Don’t you cry

For one so small

You seem so strong

My arms will hold you

and keep you safe and warm

This bond between us wouldn’t be broken

I will be here


don’t you cry

Chorus:
Cause you will be in my heart

Yes you will be in my heart

From this day on

Now and forever more

don’t listen to them

what do they know?

We need each other

to have to hold

They’ll see in time

I know


when destiny calls you

Outro
Always I will be with you


I will be there for you always
Always and always

Just look over your shoulder

Just look over your shoulder

Just look over your shoulder
I will be there
always

This is all in Vienne’s mind and it’s from Pattycake Productions Villain’s Lair

Vienne’s imagination:

long time ago and far away the Disney Wicked Mothers are in Malifcient’s castle and standing around a table

Lady Tremaine:


Ever singe I was a girl/my own mother vowed/I must find the way to power through a noble brow/

I married once for love/then my senses came/


I must marry for the statue of my husband’s name.
on husband number two/I know what I had to do/he fell ill in
a year or two

Solved Problem number one, onto problem number two/

his doe-eye little girl with a gentle point of view
Do I ship her off to school?
No i told her if she stayed she had to earn her keep
so she became the maid


Scene 5.13.10
Anastasia and Drizella
she was lazy
she was crazy
she was talking to the mice!

Lady Tremaine

She was hopeless naïve she had to pay the price
I moved her to the attic/out of sight/out of mind




Anastasia and Drizella
[ Bridge]
you’re heart too big for you

Lady Tremaine

I knew what I had to do
after all tough children will take advantage of your good nature

Chorus
So you lock them up and take away the key
there’s one on every family tree


Anastasia and Drizella

ungrateful
hateful
vile too! The things she put you through!



Lady Tremaine:
break their spirts so they obey
now’ll they do anything you say
maybe you call it cruel but others would call it love
tough love

LT (spoken)

"Is it a crime to strive in perfection in all things?"

Mother Gothel

"Oh, no, it’s so cute when they’re little but then they grow up and just ruin everything "

I never wanted children, life was better on my own
all that screaming and nagging chilled me to the bone
But one day I came across a flower growing free
its magic kept me young so I kept it all for me


But someone dug it up and now the baby held the power so I “borrowed” her, locked her up and hid in her a tower


years went by/oh the sacrifice

and against my better judgement I feed her once or twice
teenagers now I know why the wild eat their young but that’s messy
Manipulation’s easily more fun

a little guilt, a lot of force and of course you you have to lie and reminded them
without you they’ll shrivel up and die


they only have themselves to blame
if you been there you’d the same!
Work them hard till they fall in line/there’s only one way and its only mine

Evil Queen
children are lazy


LT
spoil too!

All three wicked non-birth mothers


But we know what to do!
govern them with a heart of stone
lock them up so they’re all alone
maybe you’d call it cruel
but others would call it love
tough love

Mother Gothel spoken


her own tower with a water view but she runs away the first change she gets

Evil Queen
(spoken)
“These wretched brats think the world owes them something but it doesn’t”

singing


Far and wide I rule the kingdom with a heavy hand
but there was more I had in mind, a greater plan

I never cared to share so the King would have to fall but his child blocked the way to me and “Fairest of them All”

she was chubby, she was dumb and grotesquely optimistic/
she needed structure in her life/she wasn’t realistic
I gave her chores and took away things she enjoyed


But then I caught her singing songs

with birds and then

and then a boy

Love? Was I to sit by and wait? For her to take my crown?

No she had sealed her fate


you know what they say an
“apple once a day keeps your enemies away”


Everyone:
our idea for a happy home
is one where we all live alone
dark
depressing
desolate
Now let’s all drink to that!
call us wicked/call us mean/
cruel and everything in between
you could say its unjust
turning their dreams to dust
this is what we call love, tough love!

just a warning the next song will show smoking of the “trouble makers”

       Leah:

They say I’m trouble


They say I’m bad

They say I’m evil
which makes me glad

Elliot:

A dirty no good


down to the bone

your worst nightmare

you cant take me home

Melissa:
So I got some mischief in my blood


Can you blame me/ I never got no love

Jay

They think I’m callous/a low-life hood
I feel so useless/so misunderstood!
