Acting​ ​Through​ ​Song​ ​-​ ​If​ ​I​ ​Left​ ​London​ ​(Chaplin​ ​The​ ​Musical) 

[Unit​ ​1]​ ​I​ ​want​ ​to​ ​weigh​ ​the​ ​possibilities.


If​ ​I​ ​left​ ​London​ ​tomorrow
Would​ ​I​ ​find​ ​gold​ ​in​ ​the​ ​West? I​ ​wonder
Would​ ​I​ ​find​ ​fame​ ​in​ ​the​ ​flickers
Or​ ​second​ ​hand​ ​life​ ​then​ ​at​ ​best?
And​ ​if​ ​I​ ​left​ ​London​ ​tomorrow I​ ​question
Would​ ​I​ ​succeed​ ​or​ ​just​ ​fail?

[Unit​ ​2]​ ​I​ ​want​ ​to​ ​take​ ​the​ ​opportunity


For​ ​here​ ​in​ ​my​ ​hand​ ​is​ ​a​ ​world​ ​that’s​ ​unseen I​ ​emphasize
With​ ​a​ ​new​ ​kind​ ​of​ ​future​ ​that​ ​appears​ ​on​ ​a​ ​screen

[Unit​ ​3]​​ ​I​ ​want​ ​to​ ​have​ ​a​ ​different​ ​life.


And​ ​there​ ​on​ ​that​ ​screen​ ​could​ ​I​ ​be I​ ​intrigue
Somebody​ ​other​ ​than​ ​me?

[Unit​ ​4]​ ​I​ ​want​ ​to​ ​justify​ ​my​ ​decision​ ​of​ ​going​ ​away.
For​ ​here​ ​in​ ​poor​ ​Kennington​ ​Lane I​ ​examine
I​ ​know​ ​what​ ​my​ ​life​ ​here​ ​would​ ​be
But​ ​far​ ​from​ ​poor​ ​Kennington​ ​Lane I​ ​question
Could​ ​I​ ​be​ ​someone​ ​other​ ​than​ ​me?

[Unit​ ​6]​ ​I​ ​want​ ​to​ ​encourage​ ​myself​ ​to​ ​let​ ​go​ ​of​ ​London.
For​ ​there​ ​I​ ​could​ ​be​ ​someone’s​ ​hero I​ ​entertain
No​ ​damsel​ ​would​ ​be​ ​in​ ​distress
Or​ ​maybe​ ​I’ll​ ​find​ ​the​ ​most​ ​beautiful​ ​girl I​ ​deduce
With​ ​an​ ​innocent​ ​face​ ​and​ ​see​ ​honey​ ​blond​ ​curls

[Unit​ ​7]​ ​I​ ​want​ ​to​ ​succeed


And​ ​there​ ​on​ ​that​ ​screen​ ​could​ ​there​ ​be I​ ​supplicate
Somebody​ ​waiting​ ​for​ ​me?

[Unit​ ​8]​ ​I​ ​want​ ​to​ ​be​ ​at​ ​peace​ ​with​ ​my​ ​past.

Goodbye​ ​to​ ​old​ ​Kennington​ ​Lane
