The emoji lyrics game is proving a bit more difficult than I anticipated, so in this game we can use the actual lyrics. Post a few words from a Sondheim song and then someone else can identify the song. That person posts the next lyric. An easy one to start with:

"Everybody dies."
But us, old friend,
What's to discuss, old friend?

Ladies Who Lunch 

"...time for dreaming."
Morals tomorrow

"...time for dreaming."
This sounds like it should be from West Side Story, but I can't find it in any of the songs that seem likely.
But us, old friend,
What's to discuss, old friend?
