Heathers- The Musical - Me Inside of Me (lyrics)

Lyrics

[J.D.]
Think, long and hard
Conjure her up in your mind
What would she say?
What’s her final statement to a cold, uncaring planet?

[VERONICA]
Dear World
Believe it or not
I knew about fear
I knew the way loneliness stung
I hid behind smiles and crazy hot clothes
I learned to kiss boys with my tongue

[J.D.]
That's good

[VERONICA]
But oh, the world it held me down
Uh, it weighed like a concrete prom queen crown

[HEATHER CHANDLER]
No one thinks a pretty girl has feelings
No one gets her insecurity
I am more than shoulder pads and makeup
No one sees the me inside of me
Jesus, you’re making me sound like air supply!

[J.D.]
Keep going
This has to be good enough to fool the cops

[OFFICER MCCORD]
Woah! Is it murder?

[OFFICER MILNER]
No, look. Here’s a suicide note

[VERONICA & HEATHER CHANDLER]
They couldn’t see past my rock star mystique
They wouldn’t dare look in my eyes

[VERONICA & HEATHER CHANDLER & COPS]
But just underneath was a terrified girl
Who clings to her pillow and cries
My looks were just like prison bars
They’ve left me a myriad of scars

[HEATHER CHANDLER]
Myriad? Nice

[VERONICA & HEATHER CHANDLER & COPS]
No one thinks a pretty girl has substance
That’s the curse of popularity

[COPS]
Popularity

[PRINCIPAL GOWEN]
I am more than just a source of hand jobs

[VERONICA & HEATHER CHANDLER & COPS]
No one see the me inside of me

[PRINCIPAL GOWEN]
Heather Chandler’s not your everyday suicide...

[COACH]
You should cancel classes!

[PRINCIPAL GOWEN]
No way, Coach
I send the kids home before lunch and the switch board will light up like a Christmas tree

[PAULINE FLEMING]
Our children are dying!
I suggest we get everyone into the cafeteria and just talk
Feel together

[PRINCIPAL GOWEN]
Thank you, Mrs. Fleming
Call me when the shuttle lands

[TEACHERS]
Hahahahahaha

[PAULINE FLEMING]
I’m telling you, we all misjudged Heather Chandler
This is the loveliest suicide note I’ve ever read

[HEATHER CHANDLER & PAULINE FLEMING]
Box up my clothing for Goodwill
And give the poor my Nordic track
Donate my car to crippled kids
Or to those ghetto moms on crack
Give them my hats and my CDs
My pumps, my flats, my three TVs

[COMPANY]
No one thinks a pretty girl has feelings
But I weep for all I failed to be, I failed to be
Maybe I can help the world by leaving
Maybe that’s the me inside of me

[PRINCIPAL GOWEN]
Aw, hell! Long weekend for everybody!

[PAULINE FLEMING]
Hey, not so fast kids!
They’re refueling the buses
Which gives us a solid half hour of healing
Now, I have mimeographed copies of the suicide note
So you all can feel Heather’s anguish

[HEATHER MCNAMARA]
I never knew about her pain

[PAULINE FLEMING]
Go on

[HIPSTER DORK]
Her life had hit a rocky patch

[PAULINE FLEMING]
Feel!

[YOUNG REPUBLICANETTE]
Deep down, she wasn’t cruel or vain

[PAULINE FLEMING]
Heal!

[COMPANY]
She didn’t mean to be a snatch

[PAULINE FLEMING]
Veronica, you’re very quiet
What’s on your mind?

[VERONICA]
Uh, maybe Heather realized that in order to be happy
She had to give up her power
And that the only way to do that was death

[PAULINE FLEMING]
My God
Look what we’ve done
We’re breaking through
Heather would be so proud of you!

[COMPANY]
And you, and you, and you, and you
No one thinks a pretty girl can touch you

[GOTH CHICK]
Heather touching me

[COMPANY]
But she’s made us better and be heard
Heather’s dead but she will live inside me
And I’ll be the me inside of her

[HEATHER CHANDLER]
Holy crap!
This is awesome!

[COMPANY]
Heather cried
Our sins off her shoulders

[HEATHER CHANDLER]
Jesus Christ!

[COMPANY]
Heather died so we could all be free

[HEATHER CHANDLER]
I’m bigger than John Lennon!

[COMPANY]
Heather’s gone, but she will live forever

[MARTHA]
She’s the dove that sings outside my window

[BELEAGUERED GEEK]
She’s the twin from whom I’m separated

[STONER CHICK]
She’s the horse I never got for Christmas

[COMPANY]
Heather sees the me inside of me
Heather is the me inside of me
Inside of me!
