This is the moment
Originally from the Broadway musical Jekyll and Hyde

This song I actually recorded pre neck break, with Danny Davis. I went to his house one day and recorded a bunch of songs with him. Making it one of the first songs I ever recorded, it was a lot of fun.
The cool part though is the set up for this song. Dr. Jekyll is a scientist who is laughed at by his peers. But he is working on a very unique potion. One that will remove evil tendancies from man. This song is sang once he has finished it, right before he tries it. This is the moment! I love this song, it's very powerful.

The version I have recorded here doesn’t follow these lyrics, put the piano version I do with my mom does, and I like them better hehe. *paste!*

“This is the moment,
This is the day,
When I send all my doubts and demons
On their way!

Every endeavor,
I have made - ever -
Is coming into play,
Is here and now - today!

This is the moment,
This is the time,
When the momentum and the moment
Are in rhyme!

Give me this moment -
This precious chance -
I'll gather up my past
And make some sense at last!

This is the moment,
When all I've done -
All the dreaming,
Scheming and screaming,
Become one!

This is the day -
See it sparkle and shine,
When all I've lived for
Becomes mine!

For all these years,
I've faced the world alone,
And now the time has come
To prove to them
I've made it on my own!

This is the moment -
My final test -
Destiny beckoned,
I never reckoned,
Second Best!

I won't look down,
I must not fall!
This is the moment,
The sweetest moment of them all!

This is the moment!
Damn all the odds!
This day, or never,
I'll sit forever
With the gods!

When I look back,
I will always recall,
Moment for moment,
This was the moment,
The greatest moment
Of them all!”
