Miranda and Kitt's "Bigger" Bridge Makes Me Cry

At the end of the day we are gathered together to honor the best and the brightest.
And tomorrow the fashion police will report on your dress and who wore it the tightest.
If you win, have the time of your life.
Tell your manager, dad, and your mom, "Thanks."
Say hi to your kids and your husband or wife.
Maybe just for the hell of it, Tom Hanks!
Nothing is bigger and better than seeing a veteran get an ovation or seeing a brilliant beginner freak out on a win for their first nomination.
There's a kid in the middle of nowhere sitting there, living for Tony performances singin' and flippin' along with the Pippins and Wickeds and Kinkys, Matildas and Mormonses.
So we might reassure that kid and do something to spur that kid.
Cause I promise you all of us up here tonight.
We were that kid and now we're bigger.

Yup, I was that kid. In odd odd ways, I still am.
