"Broadway, Here I Come!"

Written by Joe Iconis and performed by Molly Hager.

(This song quickly became stuck in my head after Jeremy Jordan sang the end of it on Smash and I was unable to find the lyrics anywhere. So, I listened to it a few times and here’s my best guess.)

(Edit: Turns out Hayley got there first, and she typed up the chords!)

I’m high above the city
I’m standing on the ledge
The view from here is pretty
And I step off the edge
And now I’m falling, baby, through the sky, through the sky
I’m falling, baby, through the sky
It’s my calling, baby, don’t you cry, don’t you cry
I’m falling down through the sky
Toward the street that I’m from
Oh, Broadway here I come
Broadway here I come

The pressure, it increases
The closer that I get
I could almost go to pieces
But I’m not quite there yet
See, I’ve been braving crazy weather
Drowning out my cries
I pull myself together
I’m focused on the prize
I’m falling, baby, through the sky, through the sky
I’m falling, baby, through the sky
It’s my calling, baby, don’t you cry, don’t you cry
I’m falling down through the sky
It’s a tune you can hum
Oh, Broadway, here I come

Will I remain the same or will I change a little bit?
Will I feel broken or totally complete?
Will I retain my name when I’m the biggest, hugest hit?
Or will I blend in with the rest of the street?

The people all are pointing
I bet they’d never guess
That the saint that they’re anointing
Is frightened of the mess
But even though I fear it
I’m playing all my cards
Baby, you are gonna hear it
When I give ‘em my regards
I’m falling, baby, through the sky, through the sky
I’m falling, baby, through the sky
It’s my calling, baby, don’t you cry, don’t you cry
I’m falling down through the sky
And I refuse to go numb
Oh, Broadway, here I come
Broadway, here I come
Broadway, here I come
Broadway, here I come
Broadway, here I come

And the last thing I hear
As the impact grows near
Is it a scream or a cheer?
Well never mind, I’ll never find out, ‘cause Broadway, I am here
