I'm the girl with the copper spyglass
Who prays that today she will spot her shore
All at once a lighthouse
All at once through the copper spyglass
A light telling me to lean in on the oar
I start to row
But before I can get anywhere
From point A to point B
I am at that kitchen table where
I'll always be at sea
Take half of half
And half of that
No matter where I row
- selected lyrics from Halfway from the musical Amélie by Daniel Messé, Nathan Tysen, and Craig Lucas, based on the film written by Guillaume Laurant and Jean-Pierre Jeunet
