“Waiting For Life” – Once on This Island
Music: Stephen Flaherty Lyrics: Lynn Ahrens
Naïve young Ti Moune stares wide-eyed as a car passes by her island village then prays in this song, imploring the gods for an exciting purpose. It is a beautiful exultation in this calypso musical about love and class barriers based on the book My Love, My Love or The Peasant Girl by Rosa Guy. So quit waiting around. Listen and live.
