Hamilton the Musical - History Has Its Eyes On You Lyrics

When I was given my first command
I led my men straight into a massacre
I witnessed their deaths firsthand
I made every mistake
I felt the shame rise in me
And even now I lie awake

WASHINGTON:                                   LAURENS/MULLIGAN:
Knowing history has its eyes on me        Whoa…

WASHINGTON:
Let me tell you what I wish I’d known
When I was young and dreamed of glory:
You have no control:

Who lives, who dies, who tells your story

I know that greatness lies in you
But remember from here on in
