Or - I'm sure I've told this story out here before...a friend of mine who was a director and theatre professor used to have fun talking about lyrics that he felt made no sense - one of his favorites was in "To Life," where the men sing "May all your futures be pleasant ones, not like our present ones" - which is a bit of a logical mess if you really think about it. The inference is clear, but the idea of "present futures" is a bit out there lol (though I can see how it does make some sort of sense in a way - but the lyric goes by too fast to really think it through. I think what we pick up in the moment in "present lives" as opposed to "what we think our futures are from our present perspective.")

Anyway, he had a chance to talk with Harnick once (who is, from my own short chance to meet him, one of the more gracious men I've ever met) - and he dared to ask him about that lyric. Harnick's response - "I wrote that??" ;-)

;-)
