Added DiffLines:

* From ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'' we have "Dear Theodosia," in which both Hamilton and Burr sing to their newly-born child about how much they love them already and will try to take care of them. For brief examples, we also have Angelica in "Take A Break" singing from England about how she wishes she and Alexander weren't separated, and the beginning of "Stay Alive," in which Eliza sings the titular words from home while Alexander is off at war. "Your Obedient Servant" also arguably counts, in that Hamilton and Burr are separated physically, but they are still communicating, in that the conceit is that the words they're singing are the letters they're sending back and forth.

* A rare print version of this trope pops up in ''Manga/ChronoCrusade''. In New York state, Rosette flops down on the grass and begins to sing a musical version of EdgarAllanPoe's poem ''Israfel''. In the middle of the song, the scene switches to San Fransisco, where her brother Joshua is singing the same song. Since this is the first time Joshua shows up in the present day (his previous scenes had either been flashbacks or only shown him in silhouette), the song is a clue that it's the same Joshua as it's mentioned he and Rosette sang together as children.

* The ''{{Daria}}'' MusicalEpisode has [[{{Workaholic}} Helen]] and [[TheFashionista Quinn]] (a mother and daughter) sing "Don't They Know I Can't Leave Yet." It paints them as NotSoDifferent, each achieving a sense of self-worth through their respective obsessions.

* The song "Touch-a Touch-a Touch-a Touch Me" from ''TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' has Janet singing as she's seducing Rocky in the lab as well as Columbia and Magenta singing as well... while mocking Janet from inside a bedroom as they watch her on the security cameras.

* The second verse of "At The Opera Tonight" from ''RepoTheGeneticOpera'' is a duet between the Repo Man and Blind Mag. The distance between them is not simply physical: while Mag sings about how she's made peace with her fate, Repo Man is raging and planning a bloodbath.

* An interesting example occurs in ''Theatre/TheMusicMan'', where the two leads are separated, and reprising back and forth between two songs ("76 Trombones" and "Goodnight, My Someone"), which work together as a duet.
