Wicked (Broadway Musical) – As Long As You’re Mine

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , , , , , at 2:24 pm by LynxLee


Recently my wife and I went to watch “Magical Musical” in Sunway Pyramid twice! Read on the story here. This track was simply romantic and beautiful how Stephen Weller and Stevie Tate-Bauer sang it. Perhaps they could release a track, I don’t mind buying it. Love the vocals for sure. =P

The whole atmosphere of a disco ball above in a dark light while this song was sang by them is simply very very nice. Trust me, I wish I could show you the whole moment of the show they performed, but I can’t. So either buy the tickets and go watch it or settle for the ones on YouTube. =P But if you’re interested to buy some tickets; browse here.

If you did a quick YouTube Google (Video) on it, it’s a very very well known Musical piece. Do check out below for more info:

“As Long as You’re Mine” is a musical number from the hit Broadway musical Wicked. It is a duet sung between Elphaba (the Wicked Witch of the West) and her love interest, Fiyero. It was originally sung by Idina Menzel and Norbert Leo Butz, who played Elphaba and Fiyero in the original Broadway cast. Menzel would later on win the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical.

The featured track below is a scene from Adam Lambert’s performance and some others (the closest I can find on YouTube).
If you’re looking for the most original scene, look for the last one of Idina Menzel and Norbert Leo Butz.

FIYERO:
Maybe I’m brainless
Maybe I’m wise
But you’ve got me seeing
Through different eyes
Somehow I’ve fallen
Under your spell
And somehow I’m feeling
It’s “up” that I fell

BOTH:
Every moment
As long as you’re mine
I’ll wake up my body
And make up for lost time

FIYERO:
Say there’s no future
For us as a pair

BOTH:
And though I may know
I don’t care!
Just for this moment
As long as you’re mine
Come be how you want to
And see how bright we shine
Borrow the moonlight
Until it is through
And know I’ll be here holding you
As long as you’re mine





ELPHABA:
Kiss me too fiercely
Hold me too tight
I need help believing
You’re with me tonight
My wildest dreamings
Could not foresee
Lying beside you
With you wanting me
And just for this moment
As long as you’re mine
I’ve lost all resistance
And crossed some borderline
And if it turns out
It’s over too fast
I’ll make ev’ry last moment last
As long as you’re mine

FIYERO:
Maybe I’m brainless
Maybe I’m wise
But you’ve got me seeing
Through different eyes
Somehow I’ve fallen
Under your spell
And somehow I’m feeling
It’s “up” that I fell

BOTH:
Every moment
As long as you’re mine
I’ll wake up my body
And make up for lost time

FIYERO:
Say there’s no future
For us as a pair

BOTH:
And though I may know
I don’t care!
Just for this moment
As long as you’re mine
Come be how you want to
And see how bright we shine
Borrow the moonlight
Until it is through
And know I’ll be here holding you
As long as you’re mine

FIYERO:
(spoken) What is it?

ELPHABA:
(spoken) It’s just – for the first time, I feel – (whispers) wicked!
