Act II’s sentimental sexual-tension building Penny’s Song has now been transcribed, it has a nice and easy “Seasons of Love”(Rent)/”What’s going to happen”(Scrubs) feel to it. The opening chords are the same to “Will You Lend a Hand” sung by Penny in Act I, it wasn’t long enough song for me to transcribe, but I was glad the theme was reprised in Act II there are certainly good elements of musical theater in this show.

C        F                   Em7              Am
Here's a story of a girl who grew up lost and lonely,
C             F                 Em7            Am         F
thinking love was fairytale and trouble was made only for me. 
C           FM7             C            F
Even in the darkness, every color can be found, 
    C            FM7               C
and every day of rain brings water flowing 
          Am         G   F
to things growing in the ground.
C              F               Em7         Am
Grief replaced with pity for a city barely copin'. 
C              F              Em7             Am     F
Dreams are easy to achieve if hope is all I'm hopin' to be. 
C              FM7                  C            F
Anytime you're hurt there's one who has it worse around, 
C                 FM7                C
and every drop of rain will keep you growing  
             Am            F
seeds you're sowing in the ground. 
C                     F
So keep your head up, Billy buddy.
