Recently, Sarah Schaetzel put out an article with lyrics from today's hits that are great for Instagram captions. I admittedly love to put lyrics in my captions, especially when I have a great selfie but don't really have anything to say. I love a lot of the lyrics in Sarah's article, but a thought occurred to me. There was no equivalent for musical theater. I am constantly listening to musical soundtracks and you'll find at least one musical song in each of my playlists. So here's some musical lyrics for your Instagram captions.
1. The Phantom of the Opera
"Love me; that's all I ask of you."
"Say you'll love me every waking moment."
"Close your eyes and let music set you free."

"Who cares about the world outside and what it wants from you."
"It's family first, and family last, and family by and by."
"I'm crazier than you."
"From here on in, you're singing to my soul."
"Love survives either way we choose."
"Let's live before we die."
3. Into the Woods
"Opportunity is not a lengthy visitor."
"No one is alone."
"Nice is different than good."

"I am not throwing away my shot."
"Talk less, smile more."
"History has its eyes on you."
"I am inimitable, I am an original."
"Best of wives and best of women."
