ADEN
We are not at all alike. We have our differences. May I be blunt?

ADRIANA
Be blunt. By all means.

ADEN
I think perhaps it looks like rain

ADRIANA
The sky gets bluer by the hour

ADEN
The water falls in little drops

ADRIANA
That’s why it’s called a sun shower

ADEN
Ah, now it stops

ADRIANA
You were about to be blunt?

ADEN
If I say rain, then you sun.
If I say yes, then you say no.
It seems before we start, we’re done.
We even argue at “hello”
If I say, share with me
This small umbrella

ADRIANA
I say who cares if we get wet?

ADEN
We are as different as the
Morning and the night

ADRIANA
No, we’re as different as the
Winter and the spring

ADEN
We always seem to fight

ADRIANA
We disagree on everything

ADEN
And yet…
You make me smile,
You make me laugh,
You make me care.
How can I explain?
Inside my heart
I feel a pain
When you’re not there.
Though we’re not at all alike,
You make me feel alive.
If we had that in common,
That one small thing in common,
Love could be like a small umbrella,
In the rain.
When people discover passion,
They’ve come upon something rare.
This fervor they have in common,
Will shelter them anywhere.
Though the rest may be rough,
With such passion to share,
I think we have more than enough-
Enough to make a marriage,
If we dare.

ADRIANA
You are proposing?

ADEN
No. Yes! Yes! I do not mean today.
Or tomorrow, or even next month.
In a year maybe, two years even.
I am a patient man.

ADRIANA
I won’t be sweet, won’t be demure

ADEN
This I prefer, this I adore

ADRIANA
I’ll speak my mind, you can be sure

ADEN
I’ll be enchanted to the core.

ADRIANA
If I say, let me share your
Small umbrella.

ADEN
I’ll say, who cares if we get wet?

ADRIANA
We’ll be as different as a
Husband and a wife

ADEN
No, we’ll be as different as a
Woman and a man

ADRIANA
We’ll fight our way through life.

ADEN
We’ll disagree the best we can.

ADRIANA
And yet…

BOTH
You make me smile,
You make me laugh,
You make me care.
How can I explain?
Inside my heart
I feel a pain
When you’re not there.
Though we’re not at all alike,
You make me feel alive.

ADRIANA
Yes, we have that in common

ADEN
That one small thing in common

BOTH
Our love is like a small umbrella
In the rain
