Miscast (Role of a Lifetime finale song)

For the last couple of years
I was a stranger in my skin
I didn’t know where I was going
Barely knew who I was then

Each day I’ve faced a new situation
Yet I felt so out of place
Why don’t I recognize this person
When I look at my face

Feels like all my life i’ve been miscast
But now i’ve let go of my regrets
No longer will I turn myself into
Some thing that i’m not

Cause I know now what
All that I’ve been missing
And there’s so much more to this life
Where I wasn’t living

So now it’s time for me
To take back this role

I kept going back and forth
For every scene that I was placed
But none of them was who I am
Now that slate has been erased

Cause this life that I’ve been living
Just like the stage became my home
And i’ve finally realized that I always knew
Exactly where it is I belonged

But even though this play is ending
My story has just begun
And who I am has been set free
Now the truth has come undone

Cause I know now what
All that I’ve been missing
And there’s so much more to this life
Where I wasn’t living

So now it’s for me to take back
This role of a lifetime

Can I Call This Place My Home?

These people may seem like they get me
But I still feel like the strange one
No matter how hard I try to find a way to get on by
I keep looking for a way to run

I circle through all my days
Just searching for my own space
I’m trying so hard to hide I keep it bottled up inside
But it’s written all over my face

Why can’t my life be easier than this
When trying to find a place where I exist
Can I call this place my home?

But no matter where I find myself
I always feel like the odd one out
Where did this feeling inside of me come from
Why do I feel so full of doubt

Cause I always feel like i’m the black sheep
That no one really understands
When all I really want is some friends to keep
That accept me for who I am

Why can’t my life be easier than this
When trying to find a place where I exist
Can i call this place my home?

We’re all longing to find that place
Someplace where we feel like we belong
But no matter where life leads, where ever I may go
I keep feeling like i’m always wrong

Why am I always so scared to be myself
Like I’m worried I won’t past their test
Will i ever learn how to fit in. is this a test i’ll ever win?
Even if i’m different from the rest

Why can’t my life be easier than this
When trying to find a place where I exist
Can I call this place my home?

I was beginning to feel so worn out
Trying to find a place to call my own
I wonder is this is the place, Did I really find my way?
Can I really call this place my home?

Did I really find my home?

Stranger in the Halls “Update”

Bully:YOU ARE THE STRANGEST LITTLE GUY
THAT I HAVE EVER MET
YOU BRING TO SCHOOL THE ODDEST THINGS
THAT NO ONE EVER GETS

YOU TRY TO TELL THE WIERDEST STORIES
AND NOONE REALLY KNOWS WHY
SO WHY SHOULD I EVEN TAKE THE TIME….
HEY! CAN’T YOU LOOK ME IN THE EYE?

YOU HAVE THESE WIERD QUIRKS ABOUT YOU
THAT NO ONE UNDERSTANDS
NOW YOU BETTER WATCH YOUR EVERY STEP
OR AGAINST THE LOCKER YOU’LL BE SLAMMED

Ryan: I DON’T GET WHY HE DOES THIS TO ME
WHY MUST HE TREAT ME THIS WAY

Bully:I DON’T UNDERSTAND ANYTHING ABOUT YOU
WHY YOU DO THE THINGS YOU DO
SO HOW ABOUT YOU JUST STAY OUT MY WAY
HOW DOES THAT SOUND TO YOU?

WHY MUST YOU ACT THE WAY YOU DO
YOU’LL NEVER FIT IN AT THIS SCHOOL
SO DON’T BOTHER TRYING TO FIND A WAY
FOR YOU TO BE COOL

Ryan:IT’S NOT LIKE I CAN HELP HOW I AM
I CAN’T HELP THE THINGS I DO OR SAY

Bully:YOU HAVE TWO YEARS AT THIS PLACE
SO IT WON’T BE HARD TO DO
SO GET YOUR WEIRD SELF OUT MY WAY
IT’S THE LEAST….YOU CAN DO!

Ryan: WHY MUST HE MAKE ME FEEL THIS WAY
LIKE A STRANGER IN THESE HALLS
NEVER IN MY LIFE HAS SOMEONE MAKE ME FEEL
LIKE I WAS TWO FEET TALL

THE NEXT TWO YEARS AT THIS PLACE
I HOPE THEY GO BY FAST
CAUSE IF THIS IS JUST THE FIRST DAY
THEN HOW LONG CAN I LAST?

Is Our Love Strong Enough? “Rewrite”

GF: WHY CAN’T HE UNDERSTAND HOW I FEEL
WHY CAN’T HE JUST SEE
HE SHOULD KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE HIM SO
WHY CAN’T HE SHOW THE SAME TO ME

MC: I TRY MY HARDEST TO SHOW HER
HOW MUCH I LOVE HER SO
CAUSE SHE’S THE WHOLE WORLD TO ME
SHE’S IN EVERYTHING I DO

GF: I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND THIS PROBLEM BETWEEN US
THAT’S WHAT I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND
WHY CAN’T I LOVE HIM LIKE I WANT TO
WHY CAN’T I EVER HOLD HIS HAND

MC: I WISH I COULD LET HER IN
I KNOW HOW MUCH THAT MEANS TO HER
BUT THERE’S STILL SOMETHING DEEP INSIDE OF ME
THAT KEEPS THINGS LIKE THEY WERE

TOGETHER: I DON’T UNDERSTAND THIS
I DON’T KNOW WHERE THIS WILL GO
BUT I WISH (HE/SHE) COULD UNDERSTAND HOW I FEEL
WISH THERE WAS A WAY (HE/SHE) COULD KNOW

GF: WHY DOES HE KEEP HOLDING BACK FROM ME
WHAT MORE CAN I DO FOR HIM?
WILL I BE HOLDING ON FOREVER?
WILL OUR LOVE EVER BEGIN AGAIN?

MC:WHY IS IT SO HARD FOR ME TO SHOW HER
EXACTLY HOW I FEEL?
I DON’T WANT TO WASTE MY LIFE HOLDING BACK
WHAT I THINK MIGHT BE REAL

GF: WHY CAN’T I FIGURE HIM OUT
WHERE IS OUR LIFE LEADING TOWARD?
I’M NOT SURE WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT
I’M JUST SO TIRED OF FEELING IGNORED

MC: IT FEELS LIKE PART OF ME IS HIDING
WHY MUST AFFECTION BE SO HARD TO SHOW
I’M TRYING MY BEST TO EXPLAIN HOW I FEEL
WHY CAN’T I JUST LET HER KNOW?

TOGETHER: I DON’T UNDERSTAND THIS
I DON’T KNOW WHERE THIS WILL GO
BUT I WISH (HE/SHE) COULD UNDERSTAND HOW I FEEL
WISH THERE WAS A WAY (HE/SHE) COULD KNOW

WHEN TWO DIFFERENT PEOPLE MEET
IT’S SO HARD TO BECOME JUST ONE
BOTH ARE SO AFRAID OF WHAT’S TO COME
WONDERING IS OUR LOVE STRONG ENOUGH?

Do They Understand Me?

These people may seem like they get me
But I still feel like the strange one
No matter how hard I try to find a way to get on by
I keep looking for a way to run

I circle though all my days
Keep searching for my own space
I keep trying so hard to hide I keep it bottled up inside
But it’s written all over my face

Why can’t my life be easier then this
When trying to find a place where I exist
Will I ever find my home

And no matter where I find myself
I always feels like i’m the odd one out
What is this feeling inside of me. Where did it come from.
And why do I feel full of doubt?

Cause I always feel like the black sheep
That no one really understands
When all I want is some friends to keep
That accept me for who I am

Why can’t my life be easier then this
When trying to find a place where I exist
Will i ever find my home

We are all longing to find that place
Somewhere we feel like we belong
But no matter where I try to go
I keep feeling like I am wrong

I’m always so scared to be myself
Cause i’m worried I won’t past their test
Will I ever learn how to fit in, is this a test i’ll ever win
Even if i’m different from the rest

Why can’t my life be easier than this
When trying to find a place where I exist
Will I ever find my home

I’m beginning to feel so worn out
Looking for a place to call my own
I wonder if this place that I found
Is a place I can really call my home

Will I ever find my home?

Is Our Love Strong Enough “Updated”

GF: Why can’t you understand me
Why can’t you just see
You know how much I love you
Why can’t you show the same to me

MC: I try my hardest to show how much
How much I adore you
Cause you’re the whole world to me
You’re in everything I do

Gf: Then what’s the problem between you and me
That’s what I just can’t understand
Why can’t I ever love you like I want to
Why can’t I ever hold your hand

MC: I wish that I could let you in
I know how much it means to you
But there’s just something that’s inside of me
That’s holding back from you

Together:I don’t understand this
I don’t know where to go
I wish you could understand me now
Wish there was a way that you could know…

Gf: Why is he holding back from me?
What more can I do for him?
Will I be holding on forever?
Will our love ever begin again?

MC: Why is it so hard for me to show
Exactly how I feel
I don’t want to waste my life holding back
What I think might be real

GF: I can’t seem to figure him out
Where is our life leading toward?
I’m not sure what this all about
I’m just so tired of feeling ignored

MC: It feels like part of me is hiding deep inside
Why must affection be so hard to show
I’m trying my best to explain how I feel
Why can’t I just let her know?

Together:I don’t understand this
I don’t know where to go
I wish you could understand me now
Wish there was a way that you could know…

When two different lives meet
It’s so hard to become just one
So afraid of what’s to come
Is our love strong enough?
