There are big, tall, terrible,
Awesome, scary,
Wonderful giants
In the sky!

MartinG

Love this game!!  ;D

It may come cannonballing down through the sky,
Gleam in its eye,
Bright as a rose!

Who knows?
It's only just out of reach,
Down the block, on a beach,
Under a tree.
I got a feeling there's a miracle due...
Morals tomorrow

AmyG

I insist on
Miracles, if you do them,
Miracles - nothing to them!
I say don't,
Don't be afraid!

KathyB

Going with "afraid":

Listen everybody, I'm afraid you didn't hear
Or do you want to hear a crazy lady fall apart in front of you

Vera Charles

You could drive a person crazy.
You could drive a person mad.

KathyB

You have a thought you're fairly bursting with,
A personal discovery or problem, and it's
What's your rush, Henrik?
Shush, Henrik,
Goodness, how you gush, Henrik,
Hush, Henrik,
You murmur
I only--
It's just that--
For God's sake!
Later, Henrik...

Leighton

In the murmurs, in the gestures,
In the pauses, in the sighs.
Self indulgence is better than no indulgence!

Vera Charles

As for applause, please,
When there's a pause, please,
Although we welcome praise,
The echo sometimes lasts for days

MartinG

Mock me with praise.
Let me be used.
Vary my days.

But alone,
Is alone
...

   :D
Morals tomorrow

The reference is pretty obvious ;), but are multiple words allowed?
But us, old friend,
What's to discuss, old friend?

I've a feeling Martin has no-one is alone in mind as the next lyric in the chain?
Perhaps he "bolded" more than he meant? I prefer it when it's just one word, though ...

Vera Charles

Rather than hold things up, I'm going to assume Martin's lyric has been accepted ...
No one is alone
Truly
No one is alone
I wish...

@scenicdesign71 seems to remember the old game pretty well, so I'm going to let him determine if multiple words are allowed. Until he weighs in, I'm going to rule that you can only use a single word as the next target, though that sequence of letters can be spread across multiple words in the response.

I remember multiple words being allowed, as long as those words were found in the same order in another song.

Was just about to say the same thing.   ;)
