The Sally and Jack unofficial duet from the film ‘A Nightmare before Christmas’
I sense there's something in the wind,
That feels like tragedy's at hand,
And though I'd like to stand by him.
Can't shake this feeling that I have,
The worst is just around the bend.
And does he notice my feelings for him?
And will he see how much he means to me?
I think it's not to be.
What will become of my dear friend?
Where will his actions lead us then?
Although I'd like to join the crowd,
In their enthusiastic cloud,
Try as I may, it doesn't last.
And will we ever end up together?
No, I think not, it's never to become,
For I am not the one.
Jack and Sally’s song
(My dearest friend/ we’re simply meant to be)
My dearest friend, if you don't mind,
I'd like to join you by your side.
Where we can gaze into the stars,
And sit together,
Now and forever,
For it is plain as anyone can see,
We’re simply meant to be.
Words and music by Danny Elfman
