Hello everyone, I really really really need your help. All of your guys help. As much help as I can get.

I'm competeing some dances tommorow and sunday a dance competetion called showstoppers (thats sort of irrelevant but just so you know..) and I need to become a character on stage, and since you guys all act, and know how to create a charector from your monologues and such, I was hopeing you would be able to help me create a charater to play on stage for each of these songs. Seriously, any feedback will help me tons. I really appreciate this. Thank you so much.
 

The four dances I'm doing this year are to these four songs.
Tell me what you think each song means, because getting different perspectives will really help me.

Okay, this one is my solo--and is the one I'm most uncomfortable with. I have never ever ever ever done a solo. Not even in a school show (well except for this solo in this last show) and we have our first competition this weekend. Not only have I never competed a solo, but I haven't even competed with a studio in I think about 3 years. I am extremely nervous and stressed out so please, help me?

The costume is really cool, but hard to describe. It's dark purple and black velvet. The top is all criss crossy and crazy. It's like a crop top but then a purple stripe comes down over my stomach on a diagonal and attaches to the skirt, and a black stripe comes down on my back opposite diagonal to attach to the skirt. The skirt is 2 different pieces and it's just like uneven and stuff. with fishnets and black jazz shoes.

The Question of U
Prince
So what is the answer 2 the question of u
What do I look 4, what shall I do?
Which way do I turn when I'm feeling lost?
If I sell my soul, now what will it cost?
Must I become naked? No image at all?
Shall I remain upright? Or get down and crawl? All of the questions in my life will be answered
when I decide which road 2 choose
What is the answer 2 the question of u? U.

This one is our jazz group dance. I already know for this one we're supposed to be sassy, but I'm not like...a naturally sassy person so yeah it's hard. 

The costume for this one is black Capri pants, black jazz shoes, a red bra underneath a black sheer off the shoulder shirt underneath a black vest with red rhinestones. 

Phenomena Yeah Yeah Yeahs lyrics


Hey

Don't touch
Can't sleep with the lights on
Touch, kid
How you surprise me now
Roll, kid, knock your body up

You're something like a phenomena
Something like an astronomer
Roll, kid, rock your body

Something like a phenomena, baby
You're something like a phenomena
Something like a phenomena, baby
You're gonna get your body off

Don't fall asleep with the motor on
She'll make you sweat in the water
Don't fall asleep with the motor on
She'll make you sweat in the water

Hot time kid
Hot time kid
It's cold under the blanket
They loved it
Then shot it
The fastest ran and got it
They stole it
They ease, ma
They hide it up their sleeves, Mom
They hide it
They hide it
They're never gonna find it

Don't fall asleep with the motor on
She'll make you sweat in the water
Don't fall asleep with the motor on
She'll make you sweat in the water

Something like a phenomena, baby
You're something like a phenomena
Something like a phenomena, baby
You're gonna get your body off

Something like a phenomena, baby
You're something like a phenomena
Something like a phenomena, baby
Gonna get your body off
Hot time kid
Hot time kid
It's cold under the blanket
Hot time kid
Hot time kid
It's cold under the blanket

This one is our lyrical group dance. I'm really unsure about the facials in this one. I try to just---"feel it "--- and what not but it would help if I could really think of something. 

The costume for this one is a really pretty pink dress that ends a couple inches above our knees, with a sort of light orange trim, and really pretty sheer pink/orange (changes in the light) material that comes up over shoulders and ties so it's a halter top. It's really really pretty.

Pat Benatar / We Belong

We belong, we belong to the light
Many times I've tried to tell you
Many times I've cried alone
Always I'm surprised how well you
Cut my feelings to the bone

Don't want to leave you really
I've invested too much time
To give you up that easy
To the doubts that complicate your mind

Chorus:

We belong to the light
We belong to the thunder
We belong to the sound of the words
We've both fallen under
Whatever we deny or embrace
For worse or for better
We belong, we belong
We belong together

Maybe its a sign of weakness
When I don't know what to say
Maybe I just wouldn't know
What to do with my strength anyway
Have we become a habit
Do we distort the facts
Now there's no looking forward
Now there's no turning back
When you say

(chorus)

Close your eyes and try to sleep now
Close your eyes and try to dream
Clear your mind and do your best
To try and wash the palette clean
We cant begin to know it
How much we really care
I hear your voice inside me
I see your face everywhere
Still you say

(chorus)


And the last one is a trio with me Ashley and this girl Noelle. 
Our costume is a lingerie looking dress thing it's white with black lace trim, but down the sides is wide sheer black stripes so you can kind of see our bodies. We're wearing black shorts and sports bras. It's all right, could have been better but it looks nice with the dance.

 Marc Cohn / Strangers In A Car

There's a stranger in a car
Driving down your street
Acts like he knows who you are
Slaps his hand on the empty seat and says
Are you gonna get in
Or are you gonna stay out?
Just a stranger in a car
Might be the one they told you about

Well you never were one for cautiousness
You open the door
He gives you a tender kiss
And you cant even hear them no more --
All the voices of choices
Now only one road remains
And strangers in a car
Two hearts
Two souls
Tonight
Two lanes

You don't know where you're goin
You don't know what you're doin
Hell it might be the highway to heaven
And it might be the road to ruin
But this is a song
For strangers in a car
Baby maybe that's all
We really are
Strangers in a car
(driving down your street)
Just strangers in a car
(driving down your street)
Strangers in a car

Thank you so much, I'm kind of freaking out.
