Showtune of the Day: “The Music and The Mirror” from A Chorus Line. Performed by Charlotte D'Amboise.

This songs gets to me every time. I’ve always loved Cassie’s vulnerability, the way she puts everything behind her to start again. Every time I hear her say “I’ll do you proud” I’m on the verge of tears.

Give me a job and you instantly get me involved.
If you give me a job,
Then the rest of the crap will get solved.
Put me to work,
You would think that by now I’m allowed.
I’ll do you proud.

Throw me a rope to grab on to.
Helpome to prove that I’m strong.
Give me the chance to look forward to sayin’:
“Hey, listen, they’re playing my song…”
