I also write "filksong" lyrics. The following is sung to the tune of "My Eyes" (Billy's part only) from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, but they are Doctor Who fan lyrics. The original song and its music was written by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon, and Maurissa Tancharoen. If you wish to perform this, be sure to give credit to ALL of us -- thank you!!


~~~~~  Before Your Eyes  ~~~~~

~~~ Lyrics by Laura Christopher, 2012 ~~~


Anyone who's lived between

Regenerations will not know what it means:

To save my life I must change from a person that I trust

Into someone I've never met and never seen.


Listen close, you'll hear my pounding hearts;

I'm starting to glow...

My old life is shattering apart,

And I don't want to go!


You cannot believe your eyes--

Oh companion, such scared surprise--

'Cause it's plain to see

This fire inside of me

Before your eyes....


You might think you've gone insane

When I tell you that I am still the same

While you're staring at a face that you don't know, and in a place

Where you've just watched me die -- it messes with your brain.


Listen close to everything I say:

I'm still your Time Lord friend...

It's the way that I protect myself

So I don't have to end.


I know it's a cruel surprise,

But we've no need to say goodbyes,

For it's plain to see

There's new life inside of me

Before your eyes....

Thank you!! I assume you're acquainted with both Doctor Who and Dr. Horrible. Don't know if someone who isn't would be able to appreciate my filksong lyrics!
