Taye Diggs: Benjamin Coffin III
Mark , Angel , Maureen , Roger , Collins , Benjamin Coffin III , Mimi : Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes. Five hundred twenty-five thousand moments so dear. Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes. How do you measure, measure a year? In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee. In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife. In five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes - how do you measure a year in the life? How about love? How about love? How about love? Measure in love... seasons of love.
All : [sung] No other road / No other way / No day but today
All : [sung] NO DAY BUT TODAY!
Mark : How do you leave the past behind when it keeps finding ways to get to your heart? It reaches way down deep and tears you inside out till you're torn apart - rent!
Mark , Tenants , Roger : How can you connect in an age where strangers, landlords, lovers, your own blood cells betray? What binds the fabric together when the raging, shifting winds of change keep ripping away?
Benjamin Coffin III : Draw a line in the sand and then make your stand...
Roger : Use your camera to spar!
Mark : Use your guitar!
Mark , Tenants , Roger : When they act tough, you call their bluff. We're not gonna pay... we're not gonna pay... We're not gonna pay... last year's rent! This year's rent! Next year's rent! Rent, rent, rent, re-ent, rent! We're not gonna pay rent! Cause everything is rent!
Joanne , Collins , Mark , Angel , Mimi , Maureen , Roger , Benjamin Coffin III : All Its time now to sing out, though the story never ends. Lets celebrate remember the year of the life of friends. Remember the love.
Joanne : You got to, you got to remember the love.
Joanne : You know that love us a gift from up above.
