I've been currently on Hamlet and Goo Goo Doll kicks. I apologize for both. All songs are Hamlet/Horatio. All songs listed are by Goo Goo Dolls.

"While I cannot nowhere near picture Horatio ever calling Hamlet "baby", this song fairly works during the last scene, when Hamlet dies in Horatio's arms.

All our time has come
Here but now they're gone
Seasons don't fear the reaper
Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain (we can be like they are)


Come on baby (don't fear the reaper)
Baby take my hand (don't fear the reaper)
We'll be able to fly (don't fear the reaper)
Baby I'm your man

All our time has gone
Here but now it's gone

Romeo and Juliet
Are together in eternity (Romeo and Juliet)
40,000 men and women everyday (like Romeo and Juliet)
40,000 men and women everyday (redefine happiness)
Another 40,000 coming everyday (we can be like they are)

Come on baby (don't fear the reaper)
Baby take my hand (don't fear the reaper)
We'll be able to fly (don't fear the reaper)
Baby I'm your man


Kinda a good one to sum up certain trends throughout the play, no?

They painted up your secrets
With the lies they told to you
And the least they ever gave you
Was the most you ever knew

And I wonder where these dreams go
When the world gets in your way
What's the point in all this screaming
No one's listening anyway

Your voice is small and fading
And you hide in here unknown
And your mother loves your father
'Cause she's got nowhere to go

And she wonders where these dreams go
'Cause the world got in her way
What's the point in ever trying
Nothing's changing anyway

They press their lips against you
And you love the lies they say
And I tried so hard to reach you
But you're falling anyway

And you know I see right through you
When the world gets in your way
What's the point in all this screamin'
You're not listening anyway


Again something that seems to sum certain trends up in my mind. And again something that would be for during/after the death scene.

You whispered in my mouth
And I spit you words right back
How good do you think I'll look
When the words start to break and crack


You beat your head upon your wall
You disconnect yourself from it all
'Cause you know that you're so beautiful and so untouchable
And I want to get in so bad, and I don't know how
No I don't know how


'Cause you're gone, and you ain't coming back
Yeah you're gone, and you ain't coming back


You held your hand so close
And I just can't push you away
I wished you could be my [guy]
But you're stuck in your a grown-up world


You beat your head upon your wall
You disconnect yourself from it all
'Cause you know that you're so beautiful and so untouchable
And I want to get in so bad, and I don't know how
No I don't know how


'Cause you're gone, and you ain't coming back
Yeah you're gone, and you ain't coming back


You beat your head upon your wall
You disconnect yourself from it all
'Cause you know that you're so beautiful and so untouchable
And I want to get in so bad, and I don't know how
And I don't know how


'Cause you're gone, and you ain't coming back
Yeah you're gone, and you ain't coming back
Yeah you're gone, and I wish you'd come back
