Daily Joy: Somewhere

“There’s a place for us. Somewhere a place for us. Peace and quiet and open air. Wait for us. Somewhere.”

Today, we’re turning to the hopeful music of Leonard Bernstein and re-sharing a beautiful performance of his “Somewhere” from West Side Story.

Lyrics to Somewhere from West Side Story:

There’s a place for us,
Somewhere a place for us.
Peace and quiet and open air
Wait for us
Somewhere.

There’s a time for us,
Some day a time for us,
Time together with time spare,
Time to learn, time to care,
Some day

Somewhere.
We’ll find a new way of living,
We’ll find a way of forgiving
Somewhere . . .

There’s a place for us,
A time and place for us.
Hold my hand and we’re halfway there.
Hold my hand and I’ll take you there
Somehow,
Some day,
Somewhere!
