"The teacher and the girl each have their own reasons for supporting the prodigy"

[Cello: Maaike peterse
Violin: Ben mathot
Flute: Jeroen goossens]

[Teacher:]
Where am I going?
How did this happen?
My life has unfolded
Depressingly average

But if I support him
Help him reach his potential
He?ll be my contribution
I can still make my mark
My name will live on

[Girl:]
His shyness is charming
I wish I could reach him
He?s strangely disarming
I hope I can free him

[Teacher:]
I know I can help him

[Girl:]
He needs someone like me

[Teacher:]
To reach his potential

[Girl:]
To learn how to feel

[Teacher:]
He?ll be my contribution

[Girl:]
I wish he?d let me in

[Teacher:]
They?ll remember my name

[Girl:]
Let me help him to live

[Teacher:]
My claim to fame
