ANITA

When they'd see me on the big screen

People thought I had it made 

They'd see my name in lights 

And all those Hollywood nights 

But they never saw the price I paid

 

I spent my life making movies 

They called me the queen of the Bee's

I went on studio dates 

To make my costars look straight

 But none of that was really me

 

[Tempo picks up]

 

My movies didn't make much money

At least while I was alive 

It took a fatal flight 

On a rainy night 

For me to say that I’ve finally arrived 

 

Now they package me like Coca Cola 

They play my bio on A&E 

I'm on slot machines

And they sell me to teens 

God the irony is killing me

 

That's the way it goes 

For everybody here 

As the legend grows 

We start to disappear 

 

It's a twist of fate

And something you can't fight 

Sometimes you have to die 

To be larger than 

 

Life, life, life 

Larger than 

Life, life, life 

 

Larger than

 

ANITA

[SPOKEN]

 “Larger Than Life” ended up being

my favorite film. And they gave me

quite the send off by having me

buried at Hollywood memorial

park cemetery. Now if you don't 

know…it's only the most

star-studded cemetery in the

world!  People travel far and wide

just to see me [beat] dead!

 

ANITA & THE HEREAFTER CHOIR

Now we're all dearly departed 

Legends each in our own way 

Every moment is measured 

Every story is treasured 

They think about us every day 

 

It's funny how death becomes you

And elevates you in their eyes 

 

We're all frozen in time 

And on everyone's mind 

And all we had to do was die

 

ANITA

That's the way it goes

 

EDDIE/ANA

That's the way it goes

 

ANITA

For everybody here

 

EDDIE/ANA

For everybody here

 

ANITA

As the legend grows

 

EDDIE/ANA

As the legend grows

 

ANITA

We start to disappear

 

EDDIE/ANA

We start to disappear

 

ANITA, EDDIE, ANA, & THE HEREAFTER CHOIR

It's a twist of fate

And something you can't fight

Sometimes you have to die 

To be larger than  

 

Life, life, life

Larger than

Life, life, life

Larger than 

 

[Tempo slows down]

 

ANITA

I'll always be Annie Myron 

I'll always be the age of five 

Singing in my room 

And wishing on the moon

 

That some day I'll be larger than life 

God I pray I'll be larger than life 

Look at me 

 

I'm larger than life
