Free song lyrics Wishing no cost for composers and musicians

WISHING (song)

Lyrics by D. M. Larson

 

Have you made a wish?

I wish all the time.

I make the same wish,

Leaving worry behind.



Will my life transform
Will my wish come true
I weather the storm
Wishes help me through


CHORUS:

I welcome darkness

At the end of day

To the night’s first star

I will always say...

"Star light star bright,

first star I see this night...

I wish I may,

I wish I might,

have my wish tonight..."



I go to wishing wells

With my lucky penny...

Casting magic spells

Along with so many



Treasure for the fish

Pennies in the well

Releasing my wish
My heart’s desire I tell


CHORUS:

I welcome darkness

At the end of day

To the night’s first star

I will always say...

"Star light star bright,

first star I see this night...

I wish I may,

I wish I might,

have my wish tonight..."



Did you ever desire
Some wishes so bad
Swept up in a fire

Making you go mad


Tragedies of life
Weigh me down

I am still stuck  here...

In this life, I am bound    


CHORUS:

I welcome darkness

At the end of day

To the night’s first star

I will always say...

"Star light star bright,

first star I see this night...

I wish I may,

I wish I might,

have my wish tonight..."



But I won't stop wishing...

I can't stop this thirst

... give me some meaning...

I am over the worst


Please fulfill this need

for the peace I crave

Growing the seed

My soul you will save



CHORUS:

I welcome darkness

At the end of day

To the night’s first star

I will always say...

"Star light star bright,

first star I see this night...

I wish I may,

I wish I might,


have my wish tonight..."

Acting Contest! Super Short Mini Monologue

Freedrama brings back the Super Short Mini Monologue Contest! 

One of our most popular contests involved making super short videos of our monologues so we decided to bring this back again. 

Select a few lines from a Freedrama monologue and make a video. Feel free to include costumes and sets to make it dynamic as possible. 

 Every week we will have a winner who will receive $20 and have their video posted on the Freedrama YouTube channel.  Winners will be considered for larger prizes if your video concept is creative and innovative.

(IMPORTANT: Winnings will only be paid via PayPal.com. You may win the weekly contest more than once. Please do NOT post the video on your own YouTube channel). 

Upload your video to something like Google Drive (not YouTube) and send a link to freedrama@gmail.com 

Select from the following lines (check out the full monologue links to get to know the characters):

Big Bad Wolf Mini Monologue #2 
All that happily ever after seems to be reserved for princesses and cute little animals. Especially bunnies. Why are rabbits always getting happy endings? They're rodents, I tell you. Rodents! https://freedramaplays.blogspot.com/2014/09/the-big-bad-wolf-monologue-for-male-or.html 

Humpty Dumpty Private Egg Hard Boiled Detective

Good Deeds and Such Mini Monologue #1 
Witches have got a seriously bad reputation here in Fairy Tale Land and it's only getting worse since the Hansel and Gretel incident. I mean, come on people. Eating children. That's just low. 
https://freedrama.net/gooddeeds.html 

Good Deeds and Such Mini Monologue #2 
I mean, what's a witch without her magic? We're nothing, I tell you. Nothing! We'll be just a bunch of creepy old hags with bad hair and skin. https://freedrama.net/gooddeeds.html

Remember when your cousin Earl brought home that girl from California? She had her armpit hair braided! https://www.freedrama.net/greenie.html 

Go Home Mini Monologue #1 
Where have you all been? Getting ready for what? The apocalypse?!  https://freedrama.net/gohome.html 

Never Touch Mini Monologue #1 
I was a dreamer. Living in my mind. Flying to the moon and back. Riding on a moon beam. Skipping on clouds. I am a poet. A romantic. I shall always smell the rose but never touch it. https://freedramaplays.blogspot.com/2017/07/big-nose-modern-cyrano-monologues-from.html

Steam Train Mini Monologue #1 
 No brakes or safety nets... No getting off the runaway train. So instead of being afraid, instead of seeing it as an end to life... You scream... Bring it on steam train! ... Make me live! https://freedramaplays.blogspot.com/2014/09/steam-train-monologue-for-male-or.html 

Death by Dollars Mini Monologue #1 
 I blame them... I do... They make it too easy... And cheap. That's me. Cheap and easy. I am a dollar menu fanatic. I will eat anything for a buck. That's my motto. https://freedramaplays.blogspot.com/2014/09/death-by-dollars-comedy-monologue-about.html 

Masked Man Mini Monologue #1 It was so nice seeing Roger again... Rushing on the bus, being a hero. I like him being a hero too. As long as he is in a mask. I love the mask. Good or bad, the mask is perfect. https://freedramaplays.blogspot.com/2014/08/masked-man-free-comedy-monologue-for.html

 And I hate shopping online. Online, catalogs… that’s like pure torture… I have to touch diamonds. See them sparkle. https://freedramaplays.blogspot.com/2016/10/plan-b-monologue-from-somebody-famous.html

Ice Queen Mini Monologue #1 Well, I’ve written her a letter almost every day since she’s been here and she hasn’t written back. In fact she trashes my letters. I know because I go through her trash. https://freedramaplays.blogspot.com/2016/10/ice-queen-monologue-from-comedy-stage.html

"No More Worries" monologue from Superhero Support Group script


“NO MORE WORRIES”
monologue

DOCTOR
You all have a problem and I have the cure. Don't you feel a great burden?  Don't you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders?  You feel like you have to deal with all the world's evils.  But I can change all that.  No more burdens.  No more worries.

The weight of the world is off her shoulders.  She's happy now.

Anyone can change the world.  You don't have to have superpowers.

I'm saying that ordinary people can make a difference in this world.

What about teachers, nurses, police officers?  They all make a difference.

It's time for the world to solve their own problems.

Supers are the ultimate co-dependents.  Always looking for problems.  Never happy if there isn't a crisis.  Getting themselves involved with demanding citizens who don't appreciate them for who they are.  You can never do enough to please them.

Come in, friends.  We'll take care of all this for you.  No more stress.  No more worries.
