    I don’t think that song is on any of the Weaver’s records I have. Good excuse to dig them out. Thanks.

    No, it wouldn’t be. It’s from West Side Story, “Something’s Coming”. It’s Tony’s song the day before he meets Maria. He’s going to a dance that night and in his youthful hopefulness sings about finding the elusive thing he yearns for but can’t identify.

    “…Who knows?
    It’s only just out of reach,
    Down the block, on a beach,
    Under a tree.
    I got a feeling there’s a miracle due,
    Gonna come true,
    Coming to me!

    Could it be? Yes, it could.
    Something’s coming, something good,
    If I can wait!
    Something’s coming, I don’t know what it is,
    But it is
    Gonna be great…"

    And then he meets Maria….

    Good call. I’ve always thought that WSS contained some of the best lyrics ever. My opinion of Stephen Sondheim dropped several floors when I heard him say how he didn’t like the work he did there.

    And then he dies.

    When you listen to it with the benefit of hindsight, knowing the tragedy that will come, the sense of happy anticipation acquires such poignancy.
