While framed in the play as established pop hits, the songs in Cutting It are in fact all originals. Here are two.

Here is the Music Player. You need to installl flash player to show this cool thing!

DARKNESS

There’s so much he doesn’t know
And it starts to matter less
The sorrow and the mess
The darkness that he puts in the shade

Help me to keep it at bay
Let me have another day
Help me not to be afraid
Let me have another day

I thought it was important
I thought it was the truth
The crimes I have committed
And the wreckage of my youth

But I am something else with him
And with the fervour of the saved
I pray it does not fall between
The darkness that he puts in the shade

Help me to keep it at bay
Let me have another day
Help me not to be afraid
Let me have another day

And the sweetest part of the grace
Is he does not know my other face

I want to be better for him
And in this loving suit
The goodness I perform for him
Will soon become the truth

And one day I will show it him
And we will be amazed
That I ever was oppressed
By the darkness he puts in the shade

Help me to keep it at bay
Let me have another day
Help me not to be afraid
Let me have another day

AMBUSH BABY

I’m not a man of many words
But on this special day
Though I’m not a man of many words
There’s a few I’d like to say

If you had asked a year ago
I would have said that I
Was not equipped for giving
What you’re supposed to, to a bride

You take me by surprise
You do it all the time
There’s an ambush by your side
And it ought to be a crime

I know I often get it wrong
But on this special day
I don’t want to get it wrong
So I put it down this way

A year ago I would have said
That I was just a boy
A year can introduce you
To new things to enjoy

You take me by surprise
You do it all the time
There’s an ambush by your side
And it ought to be a crime

Ooh lady – the ambush, baby
Ooh lady – the ambush, baby
