Anna Kendrick - A Part Of That Lyrics




One day we're just like
"Leave It to Beaver."
One day it's just a
Typical life
And then he's off on
A trip to Jamie-land
Staring catatonic out the window
Barely even breathing all the while...

And then he'll smile
His eyes light up, and deep within the ground
Without a sound
A moment comes to life
And I'm a part of that
I'm a part of that
I'm a part of that

Next day it's just like
It never happened...
We're making dinners
We're making plans
Then he gets on the
Mule train to Jamie-land
Handful after handful of Doritos
Circling the apartment, logging miles...

And then he smiles
His eyes light up, and how can I complain?
Yes, he's insane
But look what he can do
And I'm a part of that
I'm a part of that
I'm a part of that...

And it's true
I tend to follow in his stride
Instead of side by side
I take his cue
True, but there's no question, there's no doubt...
I said I'd stick it out
And follow through
And when I do...

Then he smiles
And where else can I go?
I didn't know
The rules do not apply
And then he smiles
And nothing else makes sense
While he invents
The world that's passing by
And I'm a part of that
I'm a part of that
I'm a part of that
Aren't I?

I'm a part of that
I'm a part of that
I'm a part of that

Anna Kendrick A Part Of That Comments
  1. ANA0072

    Underatted movie. I think this is one of the best roles of Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan. I love the scenes when they're just talking, not singing. E.g The Schmuel Song and If I Didn't Believe In You. So many raw emotions from both of them, you almost feel as if you're intruding on their intimate moments. I feel like the problem with them and why they go unnoticed media wise is because for Anna, her career so far has been more geared towards singing. She's an amazing singer of course but her acting is even better and that skill is under used. In Jeremy's case, people underestimate his singing. Though this movie is mostly songs, both actors executed their roles perfectly. And I stand by that.

    You can really see in this song that Jamie starts to dedicate himself to his career and at first she doesn’t mind because she gets to see him happy and successful and if she has to “follow him in stride” for a while that’s okay because she knows he loves her. Except later on she feels like it’s constantly about him and she gets sick of it just being about him like she wants time for them. You could argue she’s jealous but I see someone in a marriage where they’re putting their loved one first and he doesn’t reciprocate as much. It just seems like she’s alone in the marriage.

  3. Running Hamburger

    The thing is he cheats on her right after this

  4. Zoe Villegas

    There’s so much to talk about with this song. For starters, a part could either mean included in it or just another thing on top of that. Then the “aren’t I?” At the end is so heartbreaking. She’s really questioning if they’re a team or if she’s just a part. Personally I never got jealousy out of Cathy. I saw manipulation from Jaime’s side to make it think she was jealous about his success. He probably did love her at one time, but also for most of his songs are about it being unfair he must stay faithful. I love this musical.

  5. Anthony Dary

    “Cathy, how does it feel to be trodding along at the genius’s heels?”

    Cathy:

  6. K R.

    I can relate cuz when Jeremy Jordan smiles I become a puddle of mush too 😍🤷🏽‍♀️😂

  7. Mj Ewan

    from what I can interpret from the song, the first few parts tells about her being a part of her husband's happiness(by doing whatever makes him happy[because he is more successful than her?]). It works at first but as the song/time progresses, she is doubting whether she is still a part of that

    And yeah I think my interpretations are wrong... I wanna hear your thoughts people!
    (P.S.: This is what i usually do to get over to some songs please forgive me xD)

  8. Yvette DJ

    I think she would make a pretty good Disney princess💓

  9. Belle Amazona

    It should be "I'm apart of that", based from what happened in the film.

  10. Chris B

    that "aren't I" breaks my heart :(

  11. Eli Valencia

    "I tend to follow by his stride, instead of side by side"

  12. Adrianna Austin

    audition song or nah?

  13. Adrianna Austin

    i actually need to see this

  14. Four Aces

    "aren't i?" Wth this kills me

  15. lightyear

    I think she's not jealous because she didnt have the same success in her life, she's jealous because she feels like jamie left her behind and didnt take her with him through all things that was going on in his life. She is jealous of the things that get jamie's attention more than her. Thats why she keeps telling herself "i'm a part of that" as if shes making sure of herself that whatever jamie does or picks in his life, somehow she is 'probobly' still a part of it.

  16. jackson powell

    the changes in the chorus are gold

  17. MarcoGorelli

    I can't get over how good the bass sounds on this

  18. Galaxy

    Any one watching in 2018

  19. Galaxy

    12 is when it starts

  20. EllieC

    God I could punch Alise in this song. She's so damn obnoxious. Love the song though. Anna Kendrick's performance in this role is a bit underrated.

  21. kendrick_ robbins

    Good choice

  22. Lexi Cannan

    I really love this song. There are so many different emotions mixed into this. You can really see how much she loves him, keeping her mouth shut and supporting him and loving him even though it is mostly just for him. She wants to be there so much that she doesn't realize that keeping all of this jealousy, pain, and misunderstanding built up is just hurting them in the long run but she loves him and doesn't want to ruin what was once a good thing. Not to mention the amazing notes and Anna Kendrick's voice.

  23. Jo Bro

    This vid saved me cuz I have to sing it for musical theater thank god

  24. Catarina Bakker

    Every time Anna sings "Wherelse can I go? I didn't know" with a smile and a gazed look, my heart breaks

  25. cait etzel

    So I am auditioning for a musical and I was planning on using this song for my audition piece, however, a friend recently told me I should avoid ballads because my director apparently hates them. I think this song would be so perfect but I am having some difficulty deciding if it's too much of a ballad or not. Opinions?

  26. Dani Morales

    I LOVE THIS SONG UGH u can feel so much emotion holy fuck and she's narrating what she's thinking it's soooooo ugh love it love this song

  27. Carolyn Alquist

    In healthy relationships, the person in Jamie's position makes more time for their Cathy, and the Cathy isn't at all jealous or questioning. They're purely proud. Of course, no one is perfect and bad moments will happen, but they were doomed as soon as he became famous

    Heritage367

    His creative career taking off while hers stalled really harmed them both in different ways. He became more egotistical and self-centered while she became more insecure, a deadly mix.

  29. Jamie_Jewel

    Relatable as fuck!

  30. emme!

    she should become a fashion designer though

    Gloryjab

    he kept telling her she was great. but maybe it wasn't acting. Maybe Cathy was a better designer. Storywise, I wonder if she designed her own clothes in all the events she went to.

  31. Caroline Hitchcock

    And now, Cathy lies to herself for 4 minutes and 12 seconds.

  32. ApoIIoJon

    I love that at the beginning of this song the violin or whatever sounds kind of strained and forced and this song signals the start of the strain/beginning of the end of their relationship

  33. AmazingEvie

    I'm a little confused, if Cathy is telling the story in reverse order then chronologically Summer in Ohio comes before I'm a Part of That, so in Summer in Ohio how is Jamie's picture on the dust jacket of the book if Cathy hasn't taken it yet?

    Hayley

    AmazingEvie I think he writes another book. It would be hard to believe he would continue to be so popular without another book

    AmazingEvie

    Hayley That makes sense but the book picture she shows is the exact picture she took, even though it's not been taken yet.

    Mr. Mark

    AmazingEvie During this song, Jamie's pretty big and she's singing the song during his parties and book signings, which means he's done writing the book. But, when she takes the picture, he was still in the writing process which means that, the picture scene is a flashback? I'm not sure.

    Heritage367

    I think that other than the part where she's singing at the party, the rest are flashbacks, which gets a bit confusing.

  34. Kevin Elomina

    It's hard to be in a relationship with someone who reminds you of what you lack; nonetheless, it's the love you should focus your head on. People are imperfect, but they can give perfect love.

    Gloryjab

    She never focused on that tho. She lied. She wouldn't stick out and follow thru. She would fight him, becoming toxic until he cheated :(

    Belle Amazona

    Kevin Elomina can I use your comment as a quote?

    Belle Amazona

    I really like what you said in comment section.

    Heritage367

    @Gloryjab I would argue she *did* stick it out. Still Smiling shows she was still willing to try to save it, even though she knew he was cheating. I would say more that not every couple who loves each other is good for each other.

  35. Dandanz3112

    Did anyone else notice that the first party they're at is the same party where Jamie sings "a miracle would happen"

    Umagon

    It's not! Here it's 63 weeks and the party where he sings is 33 weeks

    Dandanz3112

    Marcel Farias he's singing this song at both parties. If you look at both Jamie and Cathy in the second verse, they're wearing the exact same clothes that they wore at the 63 weeks party at the exact same venue. This was really powerful for me coz it shows how long Jamie has been thinking this for

    Umagon

    you're Right! I thought you were talking about the beginning of a miracle would happen =)

    Audrey Trammell

    Dandanz3112 holy shit, that’s changed my whole perspective

    Ethan P

    You also notice at the beginning of this song, we glimpse Jamie before Cathy starts singing and he is talking to some women while "gesticulating with his left hand"

  36. FullMoonNights

    I just started to tear up. At first I didn't know what exactly was causing it, but it is so clear that this is part of the breaking point that tore them apart that it is inevitable for me to at least feel something and often it is accompanied by tears

    Gloryjab

    She wouldn't stick out and follow thru. She would push back and fight him until he cheated :(

    sgtmian

    you can't push someone to cheat, holy hell. if you want to fuck someone else, you get a divorce.

  37. Rebecca Slaman

    i love the guy at 1:48 so much

    Pescatarian Cashew nuts

    Rebecca Slaman i wasnt the only one! He reminds me of Paul Dano

  38. Comsatteur

    never liked the musical really, but this is my favorite song.
    sweet music contrasted to ironic lyrics. heartbreaking.

  39. scroogentink

    IS THAT WINN FROM SUPERGIRL?

  40. Dorinda v

    -just like everybody in the comments. I think that this is such an underrated song. Because you really see the problems about which she later gets really mad, that first she was really okay with going of to 'Jamie land'. And you really see that after a while she gets sick of Jamie always being on number 1 and she becomes second. And she is not sure any more of 'being a part of that'.

  41. Diego Magaña

    I love this song because you can feel the mix of pride, jealousy, sadness, and pain in her voice as she keeps telling herself, "I'm a part of that."

    Angelika Villapando

    Diego Magaña j

    Gloryjab

    She lied. She wouldn't stick out and follow thru. She would fight him until he cheated :(

    Fadzai Simango

    Gloryjab So ... her fighting with him drove him to cheat? 😕

    Ryan T

    Especially when you hear the “aren’t I”, and can’t figure out whether or not it’s a question

  42. Kams 9095

    This is one of the under rated songs in the movie. Definitely my favorite song from Cathy's perspective and a very subdued performance from Anna Kendrick but has a strong impact nonetheless. I love how you see her love for Jaime even clouded of self doubt. You just see her love shining through.

  43. Lunch

    This is one of the scenes that has me rooting for Cathy. It sucks being alone at a party, waiting for it to end

    Gloryjab

    The whole song is a big lie to herself, which is sad.

  44. Kevin Muller

    My favorite song in the movie
