Sunset Boulevard the Musical - New Ways to Dream (Reprise) Lyrics

"New Ways to Dream (Reprise)" is a song from Sunset Boulevard the musical performed by Fred Johanson (Max).

When we met, she was a child
Barely sixteen
Awkward and yet, she had an air
I've never seen
I knew I'd found my perfect face
Deep in her eyes
New ways to dream
And we inspired
New ways to dream

Talkies came; I stayed with her, took up this life
Threw away fame
Please understand
She was my wife

We had achieved far more than most
We gave the world new ways to dream
Everyone needs new ways to dream

JOE (spoken)
Are you saying you were married to her?

MAX  (spoken)
I was the first husband.

So I play this game
Keeper of the flame
Sharing with her one last dream
Don't you think I knew it never could come true?
She'll be the very last one to surrender
I will not allow her to surrender
