Not Gonna Sing

Music and lyrics by Adam Overett

Parker, whose life is a musical that no one else sees or hears, has lost everything. The woman he loves (but can’t tell her he loves her) thinks he has betrayed her, and told him never to see her again. He resolves to forget her, and everything they’ve gone through together — and though he hears the music beginning, he insists that this will not be a song moment. Dramatic ballad for tenor. (F#3 – A4)
