irisblasi:

I dreamed of writing like the high and mighty.
Now I’m the subject of a bidding war.
I met my personal Aphrodite.
I’m doing things I never dreamed of before.

We start to take the next step together.
Found an apartment on Seventy-Third.
The Atlantic Monthly’s printing my first chapter —
Two thousand bucks without rewriting one word.

I left Columbia and I don’t regret it.
I wrote a book and Sonny Mehta read it.
My heart’s been stolen.
My ego’s swollen.
I just keep rollin’ along.

From “Moving Too Fast” in Jason Robert Brown’s “The Last Five Years”

Listen here.

I also really like:

Some people analyze every detail
Some people stall when they can’t see the trail
Some people freeze out of fear that they’ll fail
But I keep rolling on


Some people can’t get success with their art
Some people never feel love in their heart
Some people can’t tell the two things apart
But I keep rolling on
