You got it, Lawren!

YAY for Lawren who guessed from where my graduation quote derived...and who I figured would get it! Either her, Chuck, or Prof. Cooper! It is from "Jekyll & Hyde" the musical - and from a song called "This is the Moment." I have sang both that song and other songs from the show. I just wanted to have something that was me - and what better than a B'way song :)

Here are the full lyrics - I apologize for the lack of spaces between verses - for some reason Blogger won't let me break it up!

"This is the Moment" from Jekyll & Hyde.
Music by Frank Wildhorn/ Lyrics by Leslie Bricusse


This is the moment, this is the day
When I send all my doubts & 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 momentous moment;
I'll gather up my past, and make some sense at last.
This is the moment, when all I've done
All of the dreaming, scheming, and screaming become one.
This is the day, just see it shine
When all I've lived for becomes mine.
This is the moment, this is the hour
When I can open up tomorrow like a flower.
And put my hand to, everything I planned to
Fulfill my grand design; see all my stars align.
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 the 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 recall, moment for moment
This was the moment,
The greatest moment
Of them all!
