Songs for an Impossible Musical #8

As the curtain rises on Act Two, the boys and girls of the chorus raise their voices in:

The Second-Act Opening

It's a brand new start, and you're feeling optimistic.
There's hope in your heart
Though that's hardly realistic.
You're beginning again, you're starting anew
As though you believed that dreams can come true.
Beginning again and starting afresh
Wow! Maybe this time everything's gonna mesh.
Beginning anew, a different start.
There's plenty for you on life's a la carte,
You hope,
You dope,
You hope.

What'll come you can't say
but in any event you're
Chock full of hope
For today's the first day
Of life's new adventure,
You hope,
You dope,
You hope.
