Track Samples

01. Alice's theme
03. ... Down the hole
11. The Cheshire Cat

Did you know...

The chorus text isn't always easy to follow. Fortunately the CD soundtrack includes the text to the main theme. One blogger has tried to do the lot, and where the text differs to that of the liner notes, I agree more with the blogger's version. See here. Meanwhile, here's the liner note lyrics:
Oh, Alice, dear where have you been?
So near, so far or in between?
What have you heard what have you seen?
Alice, Alice, please, Alice!
Oh, tell us are you big or small
To try this one or try them all
It’s such a long, long way to fall
Alice, Alice, oh, Alice
How can you know this way not that?
You choose the door you choose the path
Perhaps you should be coming back
Another day, another day
And nothing is quite what is seems
You’re dreaming are you dreaming, oh, Alice?
(Oh, how will you find your way? Oh, how will you find your way?)
(There’s not time for tears today. There’s no time for tears today.)
So many doors – how did you choose
So much to gain so much to lose
So many things got in your way
No time today, no time today
Be careful not to lose your head
Just think of what the doormouse [sic] said…Alice!
Did someone pull you by the hand?
How many miles to Wonderland?
Please tell us so we’ll understand
Alice…Alice…Oh, Alice
(Oh how will you find you way? … Oh, how will you find you way?)
