Alice Lyrics (Danny Elfman)

I noticed there are a lot of places on the internet where you can supposedly find these same lyrics, however, none of them seem to get the words quite right. I listened to the soundtrack a great many times on loud volume, and am convinced the following are correct. Therefore, I suggest you stick to these!

Alice’s Theme:

Oh, Alice dear, where have you been?
So near, so far, so in-between.
What have you heard, what have you seen?
Alice. Alice. Please, Alice.

Oh, tell us, are you big or small?
To try this one, or try them all.
It’s such a long, long way to fall.
Alice. Alice. Oh, Alice.

How can you know, this way, not that?
You choose the door, you choose the path.
Perhaps you should be coming back.
Another day. Another day.
And nothing is quite what it seems.
You’re dreaming, are you dreaming?
Oh, Alice.

Alice.

Oh, how will you find your way? (2x)
No time for tears today. (4x)

So many doors, how did you choose?
So much to win, so much to lose.
So many things got in your way.
No time today. No time today.
Be careful not to lose your head.
Remember what the dormouse said.
Alice.

Did someone pull you by the hand?
How many miles to Wonderland?
Please tell us, so we’ll understand.
Alice. Alice. Oh, Alice.

Oh, how will you find your way? (2x)

Terabithia – Origins

Ruins near TerebI’ve recently been enchanted by the movie Bridge to Terabithia. I’m not going to go on a rant about how great I think it is, but I ordered the DVD, original book and movie companion book the day after I saw it, which expresses the gravity of my fondness for it (and my impulsive buying habits).

In addition to that, I did some research on the name ‘Terabithia’. I already wrote about this on the A Place For Us forums, but I thought I’d also post them here because I thought the results were rather interesting, and maybe Terabithia fans will come across it here (also, it’s a good enough reason to do a blog post). There’s also a treat for Myst fans at the end, so those of you who fall into that category; keep reading!
