The Spring Awakening Demo consists of the original 19 songs that Duncan Sheik wrote for the show. Duncan Sheik is singing all of the 19 songs with harmonies being added in by himself. Most of the songs that made it into the show are very similiar to their original versions.

Song DescriptionEdit

  • Opening: A slow, quiet song featuring Latin or Greek lyrics. This song was cut from the show and its spot was filled by Mama Who Bore Me and the Reprise of Mama Who Bore Me.
  • They think they're so fast/All Numb-a series of solos of all the characters describing their anger at society and the adults, the chorus is led by Hanschen 
  • A Comet on its Way: Describes sexual actions and gives many names of different people, it is unknown the importance of each name. This song was also cut from the show and replaced with Bitch of Living.
  • My Junk: Very similiar to the version heard in the actual show, the only difference are the drum beats in the background.
  • Touch Me: Nearly 100% unchanged from the final version. (Apart from it being a solo on the demo).
  • Mama Who Bore Me: More like the Reprise version in the show, excluding the strings in the background.
  • Great Sex: This song was cut from the show because the director felt that it did not do much to advance the story and was too vague. It's Hanschen's song during the masturbation scene.
  • Word of Your Body: Many more verses and intended for Hanschen and Ernst.
  • The Dark I Know Well: Nearly the same, does not include harmonies in the background. Few lyric differences. Meant fro Ernst and Thea.

  • The Mirror-Blue Night: Minor lyric changes and melody changes.
  • I Believe: Does not include certain harmonies and the end is slightly different from the finished product.
  • There Once Was a Pirate: Similiar to the Off-Broadway version. Cut in the Broadway version and replaced with The Guilty Ones.
  • Don't Do Sadness/Blue Wind: Does not feature the duet between Ilse and Moritz near the end of the song.
  • Left Behind: Mostly the same, except for some lyrical differences.
  • You're Fucked: Similiar to Totally Fucked. Features a prominent harmonica. Not as energized as Totally Fucked.
  • Whispering: Slight background music changes. Melody and lyrics are nearly the same except higher implication that Melchior raped Wendla.
  • The Clouds Will Drift Away: Essenitally Those You've Known except it's Moritz and the Masked Man and much darker and with a rock beat.
