ANASTASIA the Musical - Still/ The Neva Flows (Reprises) Lyrics

Anastasia: (Spoken)

An underhanded girl
An act of desperation
And to my consternation,
I let you go
Well not this time. Paris is no place for a good, and loyal Russian.

Anastasia: (Spoken)
We are both good and loyal Russians.

Gleb: (Spoken)
I've come to take you home.

Anastasia: (Spoken)
My home is here now.

Gleb: (Spoken)
Stop playing this game, Anya! I beg you.

Anastasia: (Spoken)
We both know it's not a game, Gleb.

Gleb: (Spoken)
If you really are Anastasia, do you think history wants you to have lived?

Anastasia: (Spoken)
Yes. Why don't you?!

Gleb: (Spoken)
The Romanovs were given everything, and gave back nothing.
Until the Russian people rose up and destroyed them!

Anastasia: (Spoken)
All but one. Finish it. I am my father's daughter.

Gleb: (Spoken)
And I am my father's son! Finish it I must.
My father shook his head told me not to ask
My mother said he died of shame

In me you see them, look at their faces in mine,
Hear their screams, imagine their terror, see their blood!

But I believe he did a proud and vital task
And in my father's name...

Do it and I will be with my parents and my brother
And sisters in that cellar in Ekaterinburg all over again

The children, their voices. A man makes painful choices
He does what's necessary, Anya!
For Russia, my beauty. What choice but simple duty?
We have the past to bury, Anya!

The Neva flows, a new wind blows

Gleb and ensemble:
And soon it will be spring. The leaves unfold, the Tsar lies cold!
Be careful what a dream may bring. A revolution is a simple thing!
