Twelfth Night the Musical - Is This Not Love Lyrics

(Music & Lyrics by Shaina Taub)

Feste:
I can tell you anything, my friend
Except how I feel about you
Cause I know you don’t return it

Though ain’t it obvious, my friend
I’m not myself around you
But I like who I am turning into
‘Cause i been missing parts of me
But when i’m with you, I feel put back together

And I know I shouldn’t say it
But baby, why don’t you see it?

Is this not love?
Is this not love that I feel for you?
Do you feel it too?
Is this not love?
Is this not love that we’re feeling?
Is this not love?

Orsino (spoken):
Once more, cesario,
Get thee to yond same sovereign cruelty.
Tell her my love.

Viola (spoken):
But if she cannot love you, sir?

Duke orsino (spoken):
I cannot be so answered.

Feste:
I’m despondence dressed like confidence
A lamb in lion’s clothes
I wanna hold you so bad
And i’m not the one you chose

But sometimes your eyes catch mine
And I dare think it
Oh I think you know it

Is this not love?
Is this not love that I feel for you?
Do you feel it too?
Is this not love?
Is this not love that we’re feeling?
Is this not love?

Viola (spoken):
Say that some lady, as perhaps there is,
Hath for your love a great a pang of heart
As you have for olivia: you cannot love her;
You tell her so; must she not then be answered?

Duke Orsino (spoken):
Make no compare
Between that love a woman can bear me
And that I owe Olivia.

Viola (spoken):
Ay, but I know--

Duke orsino (spoken):
What dost thou know?

Viola (spoken):
Too well what love women to men may owe:
In faith, they are as true of heart as we.
My father had a daughter loved a man
As it might be, perhaps, were I woman,
I should your lordship.

Orsino (spoken):
And what’s her history?

Viola (spoken):
She never told her love.
She pined in thought,
And with a green and yellow melancholy
She sat like patience on a monument,
Smiling at grief.
Was not this love indeed?

Orsino (spoken):
But died thy sister of her love, my boy?

Viola (spoken):
…I know not.

Feste:
Will I die without saying a thing?
Will I wait here for years silently?
Or will I risk it all
Lay bare my heart
And say it baby
I gotta say it baby
Is this not love?
Is this not love that i feel for you?
Oh I know you feel it too
Is this not love?
Is this not love that we’re feeling
We’re feeling
I know we’re feeling it, yeah
Is this not love?
Is this not love?
Is this not love?
Is this not…

Viola (spoken):
Sir, shall I to this lady?

Duke orsino (spoken):
To her in haste. Give her this jewel.

Duke orsino (spoken):
There's for thy pains.

Feste (spoken):
No pains, sir. I take pleasure in it.
