Maybe (next To Normal) Lyrics

((Note: these lyrics are the ones that appear on the original cast recording. However, the second verse was cut during the show's Broadway run.))

DIANA
Maybe I've lost it at least
Maybe my last lucid moment has passed
I'm dancing with death, I suppose
But really, who knows?

Could be I'm crazy to go
They say you should stay with the devil you know
But when life needs a change
And the one devil won't
You fight to the devil you don't

Maybe I'm tired of the game
Of coming up short of the rules, of the shame
And maybe you feel that way too
I see me in you

A girl full of anger and hope
A girl with a mother who just couldn't cope
A girl who felt caught
And thought that no-one could see
That maybe one day she'll be free

NATALIE
It's so lovely that you're sharing
No, really, I'm all ears
But where has all this caring been
For sixteen years?

For all those years I prayed that you'd go away for good
Half the time afraid that you really would

When I thought you might be dying
I cried for all we've never been
But there'll be no more crying
Not for me

DIANA
Things will get better, you'll see

NATALIE
Not for me

DIANA
You'll see

NATALIE
Not for me

DIANA
You'll see

NATALIE
Not for me

DIANA
You'll see

NATALIE
Not for me

DIANA
You'll see

Maybe we can't be okay
But maybe we're tough and we'll try anyway
We'll live with what's real
Let go of what's passed
And maybe I'll see you at last

(spoken)
We tried to give you a normal life. I realize now I have no clue what that is....

NATALIE
I don't need a life that's normal
That's way too far away
But something next to normal
Would be okay

Yes, something next to normal
That's the thing I'd like to try
Close enough to normal
To get by

DIANA
We'll get by

NATALIE
We'll get by
