Dance For A Dream



CARLOS
Come on, Yolanda. I just wanna see.

YOLANDA
Carlos, not here! What are you, crazy?

CARLOS
You know I love you.
They all know I love you, too. So…?

YOLANDA
So what we do together is private.

You can dance to the dream of a summer night
As we drift to the edge of desire.
Guided by love's mysterious light
With the stars in heaven on fire.

Uh-huh

BERNADETTE
Uh-huh

YOLANDA
Uh-huh

BERNADETTE
Uh-huh

YOLANDA
I have always imagined a better life
Far from el barrio's gutters.
We'd manage a club as a husband and wife.
Build a house, paint the shutters.

YOLANDA, CARLOS, BERNADETTE, SAL
You can dance to the dream of a summer night
As we drift to the edge of desire
Guided by love's mysterious light
With the stars in heaven on fire.

SAL
Hey Bernadette whatcha wanna bet
I can fly like the guys in the comic books.
You know how magic this cape is?

BERNADETTE
I'll be a nurse
So wherever it hurts
I'll bandage your wounds with my kisses.
Uh-huh

YOLANA
Uh-huh

BERNADETTE
Uh-huh

YOLANDA
Uh-huh

A restaurant, white table clothes
And maybe some light Spanish music.
Search for our dreams and sometimes they're lost
But it's my dream and I don't want to lose it.

YOLANDA, CARLOS, BERNADETTE, SAL
You can dance to the dream of a summer night
As we drift to the edge of desire
Guided by love's mysterious light
With the stars in heaven on fire.

YOLANDA
There are lawns and flowers on a Westchester street
Maples that sound like the river.

CARLOS
A place for our children, that's restful and sweet.
I promise you that one day we'll live there.

YOLANDA, CARLOS, BERNADETTE, SAL
You can dance to the dream of a summer night.
