08s: Seth Rogen / Phoenix


.....Seth Rogen

Seth Rogen: I want to thank Phoenix for coming. I want to thank Lorne, and the cast... and, uh, my family and friends -- thanks for coming, thank you! And, uh, once again, guys... give it up for Phoenix!

[ the camera pans over to Phoenix on the musical guest stage, as the credits begin to roll ]

Phoenix: [ singing ]
"Baby, when I saw you turning at the end of the street
I knew a time was gone and it took me like ages
Just to understand that I was afraid to be a simple guy
I tried my best to smile, but deep inside my heart
I felt it was shouting like a crowd dancing
I guess I couldn't live without the things that made my life what it is.

Can't you hear it calling, oh yeah
Everybody's dancin', oh yeah
Tonight, everything is over
I feel too young.

I can't lie on my bed without thinking I was wrong
But when that feeling calls, this world becomes another
Nighttime won't hold me in your arms again
I got a very good friend who says he can't believe the love I give..."

[ the credits cut off ]
