We could watch the waves, we could watch the sky.
Or just sit and wait as the time ticks by.

you don’t have to get a haircut
you don’t have to change your shoes
you don’t have to like Duran Duran
just love me

I was just wondering if the film industry and sort of business of film musicals affects the business of broadway as much as the business of broadway affects the business of film
