Daniel Day-Lewis

Sir Daniel Michael Blake Day-Lewis (born 29 April 1957) is a retired English actor who holds both British and Irish citizenship. Born and raised in London, he excelled on stage at the National Youth Theatre, before being accepted at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, which he attended for three years. He has been hailed by critics and scholars as the greatest actor of his generation, and one of the greatest actors of all time. Despite his traditional training at the Bristol Old Vic, Day-Lewis is considered a method actor, known for his constant devotion to and research of his roles.

I would like to be here, I would like
To be there,
I would like to everywhere at once.
I know that's a contradiction in terms,
And it's a problem, especially when
My body's clearing forty as my mind is 
Nearing ten.

I can hardly stay up, and I can't get to 
And I don't want to wake tomorrow
At the bottom of some heap,
But why take it so seriously?
After all, there's nothing at 
Stake here-only me.

I want to be young, and I want to be
I would like to be wise before my time
And yet be foolish and brash and bold.
I would like the universe to get down
On it's knees
And say, "Guido, whatever you please,
It's okay. Even if it's impossible, we'll
Arrange it."
That's all that I want.

I am lusting for more. Should I settle 
For less?
I ask you, what's a good thing for, if 
Not for taking it to excess?
One limitation I dearly regret,
There's only one of me I've ever met.

I would like to have another me to
Travel along with myself.
I would even like to be able to sing a 
Duet with myself.

I would like to be here (Sing along
With myself in a song)
To be there (Walking down a lane now,
Everywhere (Everywhere. That's a 
Contradiction in terms. I want to)
Here (With a counter-)
Here (Melody in the)
Here (Top of the morning to you, Guido)
Guido (Guido)
Guido (Guido)
Guido (Me)
Me (Me).

I want to be Proust or the Marquis De 
I would like to be Christ, Mohammed,
But not have to believe in God,
And you know I mean it with all of my
It's the end if something important
Doesn't start.

I want to be young, but I have to be 
What I want is a tale of sound and 
That some idiot went and told.
I would like the universe to get down
On it's knees
And say, "Guido, whatever you please, 
It's okay.
Even if it's ridiculous, we'll arrange it."
So arrange it!

Arrange it!

That's all that I want!
