Retro Notes: “With One Look”

With one look, 

I can break your heart.

With one look, 

I play every part.


I can make

your sad heart sing.

With one look you’ll know 

all you need to know.




Lyrics from “With One Look” by Don Black, Christopher Hampton, and Andrew Lloyd Webber, for “Sunset Boulevard,” 1994.
