Michael Ball – Something's Coming lyrics

(leonard bernstein/stephen sondheim)

Could be!
Who knows?
There's something due any day;
I will know right away,
Soon as it shows.

It may come cannonballing down
Thru the sky,
Gleam in it's eye,
Bright as a rose!
Who knows?

It's only just out
of reach,
Down the block, on a beach,
Under a tree...

I got a feeling there's a miracle due,
Gonna come true,
Coming to me!

Could it be?
Yes, it could.
Something's coming, something good.
If I can wait!
Something's coming,
I don't know what it is,
But it is gonna be great!

With a click, with a shock,
Phone'll jingle, door'll knock,
Open the latch!

Something's coming,
Don't know well but it's soon;
Catch the moon,
One handed catch!

Around the corner,
Or whistling down the river,
Come on, deliver to me.

Will it be?
Yes, it will.
Maybe just by holding still,
It'll be there!
Come on, something,
Come on in,
Don't be shy,
Meet a guy,
Pull up a chair!

The air is humming
And something great is coming!
Who knows?
It's only just out of reach,
Down the block, on a beach,
Maybe tonight...
