ACT 3 THE DEATH

(DEATH COMES QUICKLY YOU KNOW, IT'S LIKE A THEIF, IT SNEAKS UP ON YOU FROM THE

SHADOW'S, YOU TURN TO LOOK AND IT'S TAKEN YOU- TAKEN YOU- TAKEN YOU.)

(AFTER WATCHING THEM LEAVE HE THEN GETS ON HIS MOTOR BIKE AND SPEEDS AWAY--

STAGE LIGHTS GO DIM TO DARK----- YOU CAN HEAR THE SOUNDS OF THE MOTOR BIKE

SCREAMING DOWN THE HIGHWAY, YOU HEAR THE SCREAMING OF IT'S BREAKS, THE SOUND OF

SMASHING---- STAGE LIGHTS COME ON TO A DIM LIGHT---- YOU SEE A TWISTED WREAK AND A

GHOST LIKE FIGURE STANDING NEAR IT WITH SHADOWS-- IT SINGS--BAT OUT OF HELL FROM

THE ALBUM- BAT OUT OF HELL.)

(SAM'S GHOSTLY FIGURE SINGS-)

The sirens are screaming and the fires are howling

Way down in the valley tonight

There's a man in the shadows with a gun in his eye

And a blade shining oh so bright

There's evil in the air

And there's thunder in the sky

And a killer's on the bloodshot streets

And down in the tunnel where the deadly are rising

Oh I swear I saw a young boy down in the gutter

He was starting to foam in the heat

Oh baby you're the only thing in this whole world

That's pure and good and right

And wherever you are and wherever you go

there's always gonna be some light

But I gotta get out, I gotta break it out now

Before the final crack of dawn

So we gotta make the most of our one night together

When it's over you know

We'll both be so alone

Like a bat out of hell

I'll be gone when the morning comes

When the night is over

Like a bat out of hell

I'll be gone, gone, gone

Like a bat out of hell

I'll be gone when the morning comes

But when the day is done

And the sun goes down

And the moonlight's shining through

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I'll come crawling on back to you

I'm gonna hit the highway like a battering ram

On a silver black phantom bike

When the metal is hot

And the engine is hungry

And we're all about to see the light

Nothing ever grows in this rotting old hole

Everything is stunted and lost

And nothing really rocks

And nothing really rolls

And nothing's ever worth the cost

And I know that I'm damned if I never get out

And maybe I'm damned if I do

But with every other beat I got left in my heart

you know I'd rather be damned with you

If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Dancing through the night with you

If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Dancing through the night

Dancing through the night

Dancing through the night with you

Oh baby you're the only thing in this whole world

That's pure and good and right

And wherever you are and wherever you go

There's always gonna be some light

But I gotta get out

I gotta break it out now

Before the final crack of dawn

So we gotta make the most of our one night together

When it's over you know

We'll both be so alone

Like a bat out of hell

I'll be gone when the morning comes

When the night is over

Like a bat out of hell

I'll be gone, gone, gone

Like a bat out of hell

I'll be gone when the morning comes

But when the day is done

And the sun goes down

And the moonlight's shining through

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I'll come crawling on back to you

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I'll come crawling on back to you

I can see myself tearing up the road

Faster than any other boy has ever gone

And my skin is raw but my soul is ripe

No one's gonna stop me now,

I gotta make my escape

But I can't stop thinking of you

And I never see the sudden curve until it's way to late

I never see the sudden curve till it's way too late

Then I'm dying at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun

Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike

And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell

And the last thing I see is my heart

Still beating

Breaking out of my body

And flying away

Like a bat out of hell

Then I'm dying at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun

Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike

And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell

And the last thing I see is my heart

Still beating

Still beating

Breaking out of my body and flying away

Like a bat out of hell

Like a bat out of hell

Like a bat out of hell

Like a bat out of hell

Like a bat out of hell

Like a bat out of hell

( THERE ARE FLASHES OF LIGHTNING EVERYWHERE. THERE ARE SOUNDS OF SCREAMS AND

THEN IT'S DARK AND SILENT.)

(STAGE LIGHTS GO DARK- SCENE CHANGES TO ARIELS DOOR. SHE DOESN'T KNOW ABOUT

SAM. THERE'S A KNOCK, ARIEL OPENS THE DOOR TO FIND THE GIRL STANDING THERE)

ARIEL- " What do you want ( SHE ASKS ANGERLY.)

GIRL- " First I wanted to tell you that there was nothing between Sam and I . I was

sent to help you"

ARIEL- "What? Wait!, what do you mean help? I don't understand.”

GIRL- " Ariel, I cant waste time I gotta go, Sam is dead. We buried him. He gave his

life for you.”

(ARIEL SCREAMS OUT. HOLDING HER HEART, AND WITH PAIN RUNNING THROUGH HER VEINS .

SHE RUNS TO THE SIDE OF HIS GRAVE, KNEELS DOWN CRYING)

ARIEL- " I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry"

( SCREAMING TOWARDS THE STARS, HANDS RAISED HIGH-STILL ON HER KNEE'S.)

ARIEL- "What have I done? What have I done? What have I done?

(KNEELING NEAR THE GRAVE SHE LOOKS TOWARDS THE STARRY HEAVENS WITH TEARS

DRIPPING DOWN HER FACE AND ONTO HIS GRAVE, WITH SUCH SORROW AND HEARTFELT PAIN

SINGS- TOTAL ECLIPES OF THE HEART- FROM THE ALBUM-FASTER THAN THE SPEED OF NIGHT)

( LOOKING AT HIS GRAVE FEELING THAT ALL HER BLOOD HAS BEEN DRAINED FROM HER, THE

TEARS FALL FROM HER EYE'S HITTING HER CHEEKS LIKE RAZOR BLADE'S THAT SLICE THE

VERY SOUL OF HER LOVE FOR HIM FROM WITHIN.)

ARIEL- Every now and then I get a little bit lonely and you've never coming round

(Turn around)

Every now and then I get a little bit tired of listening to the sound of my tears.

(Turn around)

Every now and then I get a little bit nervice that the best of all the years have

gone by.

(Turn around)

Every now and then I get a little bit terrified and then I see the look in your

eyes.

(Turn around bright eyes )

Every now and then I fall apart.

(Turn around bright eyes)

Every now and then I fall apart.

(Turn around)

Every now and then I get a little bit breathless and I dream of something wild

(Turn around)

Every now and then I get a little bit helpless and I'm lying like a child in your

arms.

(Turn around)

Every now and then I get a little bit angry and I know I've got to get out and cry

(Turn around)

Every now and then I get a little bit terrified but then I see the look in your eyes

(Turn around bright eyes)

Every now and then I fall apart.

(Turn around bright eyes)

Every now and then I fall apart.

( SHE LOOKS TOWARDS THE HEAVENS.)

And I need you now tonight

And I need you more than ever

And if you'll only hold me tight

We'll be holding on forever

And we'll only be making it right

Cos we'll never be wrong

Together we can take it to the end of the line

Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time

I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark

We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks

I really need you tonight

Forever's gonna start tonight

Forever's gonna start tonight

Once upon a time I was falling in love

But now I'm only falling apart

There's nothing I can do

A total eclipse of the heart

Once upon a time there was light in my life

But now there's only love in the dark

Nothing I can say

A total eclipse of the heart

(Turn around bright eyes)

(Turn around bright eyes)

(Turn around)

(ARIEL LOOKS AT HIS GRAVE.)

Every now and then I know you'll never be the boy you always

wanted to be

(Turn around)

Every now and then I know you'll always be the boy who wanted

me the way that I am

(Turn around)

Every now and then I know there's no-one in the universe as magical and as

wonderous as you

(turn around)

Every now and then I know there's nothing better, there's nothing

that I just wont do

(Turn around bright eyes)

Every now and then I fall apart

(Turn around bright eyes)

Every now and then I fall apart

( HOLDING HER STOMACH WITH ONE HAND AND REACHING TOWARDS THE HEAVENS.)

And I need you now tonight

And I need you more than ever

And if you'll only hold me tight

We'll be holding on forever

And we'll only be making it right

Cos we'll never be wrong

Together we can take it to the end of the line

Your love is like a shadow on me all the time

(AREIL LOOKS AT HIS GRAVE.)

I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark

We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks

I really need you tonight

Forever's gonna start tonight

Forever's gonna start tonight

Once upon a time I was falling in love

But now I'm only falling apart

Nothing I can do

A total eclipse of the heart

Once upon a time there was light in my life

But now there's only love in the dark

Nothing I can say

A total eclipse of the heart

A total eclipse of the heart.

A total eclipse of the heart

(Turn around bright eyes)

(Turn around bright eyes)

( Turn around)

(WITH HER HEAD DOWN ON HIS GRAVE IN TEARS--- STAGE LIGHTS TURN RED--- THERE'S A

WHISPERY VOICE THAT CALLS "ARIEL"-- SHE LIFTS HER HEAD, TURNS AND LOOKS BEHIND

HER)

ARIEL- 'Oh my god, Oh my god. Who?”

(STAGE LIGHTS FADE TO DARK AND

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SHOULD THERE BE A PART 2 ? DO YOU WAN'T TO KNOW

WHO OR WHAT IT IS?

WELL THEN YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO WAIT . STAY TUNED. IT MIGHT BE

A WHILE. ONLY JOKING, I'VE ADDED PART 2.

( JIM STEINMAN HAS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL REFLECTION OF MUSIC--WE SHOULD NEVER WASTE IT)
