(SAM LOOKS AT HER AND STARTS TO SING- FASTER THAN THE SPEED OF NIGHT

THE ALBUM

FASTER THAN THE SPEED OF NIGHT SUNG BY BONNIE TYLER- NOTE -- CHANGED “BOY” TO

“GIRL”.)

( SAM LOOKS AT ARIEL AND TAKING HER BY THE HAND)

SAM- “ I don't want to let another minute get by

They're slipping through our fingers, but we're ready to fly

The night'll be our cover and we'll huddle below

We got the music in our bodies and the radio

And when the morning arrives it'll all be gone

Disappearing into the crack of dawn

We better make our move now before the sun is awake

It's time to put up or shut up and pick up the pace

And I don't want to let another minute get by

Love is going to get us while the moon is in the sky

We may be running out of night, but never out of steam

We're acting on a hunch, and we'll be acting out a dream

(SAM LOOKS AT HER AND POINTS TO THE SKY)

There really isn't any time to lose

They're going to catch us if we wait until it gets too light

You're such a pretty girl

Let me show you what to do, and you'll do it

But you gotta move faster

Faster than the speed of night

Faster than the speed of night

Faster than the speed of night

It's all we ever wanted

It's all we'll ever need

And it's slipping through our fingers

Faster than the speed of night

Faster than the speed of night

Faster than the speed of night

It's all we ever wanted

And all we'll ever need

And it's slipping through our fingers

Faster than the speed of night

Faster than the speed of night

Faster than the speed of night

Faster than the speed of night

Faster than the speed of night

(LOOKING AT HER AND RUNNING HIS HANDS DOWN HER BODY.)

Let me show you how to drive me crazy

Let me show you how to make me feel so good

Let me show you how to take me to the edge of the stars and back again

You've gotta show me how to drive you crazy

You've gotta show me all the things you want to happen to you

We've gotta tell each other everything we always wanted someone to do

I don't want to push you now and I don't want to rush

We're getting closer every second now, but close is not enough

The night'll be our cover and we'll huddle below

We got the music in our fingers and the radio

There really isn't any time to lose

We're going to lose it if we wait until it gets too light

Your such a pretty girl

Let me show you what to do, and you'll do it

But you gotta move faster

Faster than the speed of night

Faster than the speed of night

Faster than the speed of night

It's all we ever wanted

And all we'll ever need

And it's slipping through our fingers

Faster than the speed of night

Faster than the speed of night

Faster than the speed of night

It's all we ever wanted

And all we ever need

And it's slipping through our fingers

Faster than the speed of night

ARIEL- “ Where are we going?'

SAM- “ I don't know, away from here anyway. They'll come here. Let me think mmm.”

ARIEL- “Hurry Sam! I'm scared.” ( LOOKING AROUND)

SAM- “Wait! There is an old house on the edge of town, it use to have a cellar in it. May be

we can go there

until I can work something out.”

ARIEL- “Yes, yes, hurry.”

( STAGE LIGHT'S SLOWLY FADE TO DARK AS THEY WALK OFF.)

(STAGE LIGHT GOME'S ONTO A DIM LIGHT AS THEY REACH THE OLD HOUSE, IT'S SMELLS OLD

AND MUSTY. SAM FINDS THE OLD TRAPDOOR. THEY GO THROUGH IT INTO WHAT SEEMS TO BE

A DARK PIT. SAM PULLS THE DOOR BEHIND THEM.)

ARIEL- “Sam I'm so scared, it's so dark and cold, so cold.”

(SHE WRAPS HER ARMS AROUND HERSELF.)

SAM- “ Here take this. I found a lantern.”

( THEY LIGHT THE LANTERN.)

ARIEL- “ It works, it works. Sam what's going to happen to us?”

( SAM IS SILENT.)

ARIEL- “ Sam can you sing to me? So I'm not so scared, It'll calm me down.”

(SAM LOOKS KIND OF STRANGELY AT HER, THEN STARTS TO SING FOR HER-- BAD FOR GOOD--

TAKEN FROM THE BAD FOR GOOD ALBUM.)

SAM- The sea is whipping the sky

The sky is whipping the sea

You can hide away forever from the storm

But you'll never hide away from me

(SAM LOOKS AT HER AND DOES A HALF SMILE.)

The icy cold will cut us like a knife in the dark

And we may lose everything in the wind

But the northern lights are burning

And they're giving off sparks

I want to wrap myself around you like a winter skin

(SAM WALKS TOWARDS HER AND GIVES HER A LOOK)

You know I'm onto your scent

We're near the end of the chase

Take a look out your window and I'll be there in the night

Your love is so close that I can almost taste it

The icy cold will cut us like a knife in the dark

And we may lose everything to the wind

But the northern lights are burning

And they're giving off sparks

I want to wrap myself around you like a winter skin

(SAM TOUCHES HER UNDER HER CHIN.)

You've been living your life like a girl in a cage

And you whisper when I want you to shout

And I'll never know why you wanna go on sleeping

When there's nothing left to dream about

But you better remember

If it's something I want then it's something I need

I wasn't built for comfort, I was built for speed

If it's something I want then it's something I need

I wasn't built for comfort, I was built for speed

And I know that I'm gonna be like this forever

I'm never gonna be what I should

And you think that I'll be bad for just a little while

But I know that I'll be bad for good

I know that I'll Be bad for good

I know that I'll be bad for good

(LOOKS AT HER EYE”S WITH BOTH HANDS ON HER FACE.)

Your eye's are darker than sin

And I've been watching them glow

Take a chance on a promise and a roll of the dice

Put your foot on the gas, let it go, let it go, let it go

You've been living your life like a bird in a cage

And you whisper when I want you to shout

And I'll never know why you wanna go on sleeping

When there's nothing left to dream about

But you better remember

If it's something I want then it's something I need

I wasn't built for comfort I was built for speed

If it's something I want then it's something I need

I wasn't built for comfort, I was built for speed

And I know that I'm gonna be like this forever

I'm never gonna be what I should

And you think that I'll be bad for just a little while

And you think that I'll be bad for just a little while

And you think that I'll be bad for just a little while

But I know that I'll be bad for good

I know that I'll be bad for good

I know that I'll be bad for good

I know that I'll be bad for good

(Bad for good)

(Bad for good)

(SAM STANDS IN FROUNT OF HER)

For the good of some thrills on a long frigid night

For the good of the fire in your sou

For the good of the kiss let me hold you so tight

For the good of getting out of control

For the good of the action and the race in the dark

For the good of those chills up your spine

For the good of the rock and the roll in your heart

For the good of what's yours and what's mine

For the good of believing in a life after birth

For the good of your body so bright

For the good of the search for some heaven on earth

For the good of one hell of a night

For the good of one hell of a night

For the good of the action and a race in the dark

For the good of the fire in your soul

For the good of the rock and the roll in your heart

For the good of getting out of control

For the good of believing in a life after birth

For the good of your body so bright

For the good of the search for some heaven on earth

For the good of one hell of a night, for the good of one hell of a night.

God speed!

God speed!

God speed! Speed us away!

God speed

God speed

God speed ! Speed us away!

I'll be bad for good (god speed)

I'll be bad for good (god speed)

I'll be bad for good (god speed)

(SAM RAISES HIS HAND UP THEN LOOKS AT HER.)

Speed us away, speed us away, speed us away, speed us away.

The sea is whipping the sky

The sky is whipping the sea

You can hide away forever from the storm

But you'll never hide away from me

The icy cold will cut us like a knife in the dark

And we may lose everything in the wind

But the northern lights are burning

And they're giving off sparks

I want to wrap myself around you like a winter skin

I know that you can be bad

At least a little while

But if you give me a chance, give me one little chance

And give me all the love that you should

Then instead of being bad for just a little while

Then instead of being bad for just a little while

Then instead of being bad for just a little while

I'm gonna make you bad for good

I'm gonna make you bad for good

I'm gonna make you bad for good

I know that you'll be bad for good

You'll be bad for good

(THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH SAM, HIS EYE'S START TO CHANGE.)

ARIEL- “Sam why are you looking at me like that? Your beginning to scare me. What's wrong

Sam?

(SAM STARTS SCREAMING IN PAIN, HOLDING HIS STOMACH LOOKING UP SCREAMING,

SCREAMING. THEN HE FALLS TO THE GROUND. HIS FLESH IS RIPING APART AND FALLS TO THE

GROUND.)

( THE SCREAMING TURNS TO A PIERCING SCREECH. THERE ARE STRANGE FLASHE'S OF LIGHT.)

ARIEL- “Oh my god! Sam , Sam.”

(SHE KNEELS DOWN BESIDE HIM PLACING HER HAND ON HIM, SHAKING.)

ARIEL- “Sam, Sam, what's wrong? SAM, what's wrong? Your scaring me, Sam, S

am.”

(SHE LOOKS AROUND THE CELLER)

(SAMS BODY IS CHANGING FROM HUMAN FLESH TO A DARK SHADOW. ARIEL SCREAMS,

FALLING TO THE GROUND AND BACKING UP AGAINST THE WALL)

ARIEL- “Oh no,no, no, no Sam.”

(SHE STARTS TO CRY, COVERING HER MOUTH WITH ONE HAND. SAM RAISES UP FROM THE

GROUND AND WALKS OVER TOWARDS HER. ARIEL IS SCREAMING IN TERROR, GRIPPING THE

WALL WITH HER FINGERS, THE MUD COLLECTS UNDER HER NAILS.)

ARIEL- “ Sam please, Sam please.”

The End
