Doctor Zhivago the Musical - When the Music Played Lyrics

Lara:
I was young, I was poor, life was harsh and unsure
but a fatherless girl can't complain
then my fate chased by chance with an innocent dance
with a man who was older , and richer and bolder
a man with a taste for champagne.
And other girls like me, too blinded to see
But when the music played, the world would fade away
And I'd sail 'cross the floor, caring less wanting more.
When the music played, somehow my soul obeyed!
Heaven would be whispering my name
When the music played.
So I gave and he took
With a word with a look
I was captured inside of his game
There I was, still a girl, in the devil's own world
But a girl who was older, and wiser and colder
A girl who felt hunger and shame!
Yes, I served like a slave sins I'll take to my grave.
But when the music played
The world would fade away
And I'd sail 'cross the floor
Caring less, wanting more
When the music played
Somehow my soul obeyed
Heaven only knows what I became
When the music played
And I hated him, yet I wanted him, and I met with him more than I should
And it frightened me, how he'd hold me, like he owned me.
I said "stay away!" But he wouldn't
"Oh God! Stay away!" but I couldn't
I had to end it, I had to leave.
Can you forgive me?
Put the pain aside , put the past away
Look into my eyes and let the music play
Yesterday's fade away
To a world we restore, wanting less, caring more
Let the music play
For who we are today
Let me hear you whispering my name
When the music plays
When the music plays
When the music plays!
