Softly, as in a Morning Sunrise

My favorite song's lyrics:

Softly as in a morning sunrise
The light of love comes stealing
Into a newborn day

Flaming with all the glow of sunrise
A burning kiss is sealing
A vow that all betray

For the passions that thrill love
And take you high to heaven
Are the passions that kill love
And let it fall to hell
So ends the story

Softly as in a morning sunrise
The light that gave you glory
Will take it all away

Softly as in a morning sunrise
The light of love comes stealing
Into a newborn day
Flaming with all the glow of sunrise
A burning kiss is sealing
A vow that all betray

For the passions that thrill love
And take you high to heaven
Are the passions that kill love
And let it fall to hell
So ends the story

Softly as in a morning sunrise
The light that gave you glory
Will take it all away

Softly as it fades away...

I think I'll sing it to audition for Chicago.

Oooh, I like how you fuse

Oooh, I like how you fuse the drama of theater with the beauty of poetry. I can imagine someone reciting this onstage during some really dramatic play. Sounds vaguely Shakespearean.

Very nice.

You should use it for the audition.
