Doctor Zhivago the Musical - A Man Who Lives up to His Name Lyrics

Why of all the places in the world
Who of all the people to be living there
Dashing all the careful plans of a conscientious man
Trying to leave things as they were?
After every touch we never felt
After every word we left unspoken
Why is Heaven testing me
If it chance or destiny
That this road leads only to her?
Day after day
Year after year
Can I resist
When she is near?!
I am Yuri Andreevich Zhivago,
I will not leave a legacy of shame!
For a man is defined
by the strength of his mind
For his moral foundation
In the face of temptation
And by God if I die
Let my son know that I
Was a man who lived up to his name
A man who lived up to his name!
