Final: SUSAN: #2    

However, Obama's invited her to sing at the White House.


Semi-final: Here's SUSAN !!
Susan Boyle looked nervous.
During rehearsals, she nearly fell over as she walked toward her microphone.
"I got a bit of shock during rehearsals - I nearly fell flat on my face"
So the soles of her shoes were scored so they gripped better.
The pampering made her a little perplexed.
"Every few minutes, someone comes up to me and asks me to go back to make-up".
I've been in there three times already - but I keep going back again.
It's a job that's never finished - like painting the Forth Bridge!"


Memory
from Cats

Daylight
See the dew on the sunflower
And a rose that is fading
Roses whither away
Like the sunflower
I yearn to turn my face to the dawn
I am waiting for the day . . .

Midnight
Not a sound from the pavement
Has the moon lost her memory?
She is smiling alone
In the lamplight
The withered leaves collect at my feet
And the wind begins to moan

Memory
All alone in the moonlight
I can smile at the old days
I was beautiful then
I remember the time I knew what happiness was
Let the memory live again

Every streetlamp
Seems to beat a fatalistic warning
Someone mutters
And the streetlamp gutters
And soon it will be morning

Daylight
I must wait for the sunrise
I must think of a new life
And I musn't give in
When the dawn comes
Tonight will be a memory too
And a new day will begin

Burnt out ends of smoky days
The stale cold smell of morning
The streetlamp dies, another night is over
Another day is dawning

Touch me
It's so easy to leave me
All alone with the memory
Of my days in the sun
If you touch me
You'll understand what happiness is

Look
A new day has begun

Ugly Duckling ... or Beautiful Swan


I Dreamed a Dream
from Les Miserable

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
When dreams were made and used and wasted.
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung no wine untasted.

But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hope apart
As they turn your dream to shame.

And still I dream he'll come to me
That we will live our life together.
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather.

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 dreamed.
