Agony Lyrics

Broadway
Into the Woods the Musical - Agony Lyrics

CINDERELLA'S PRINCE:
Did I abuse her
Or show her disdain?
Why does she run from me?
If I should lose her,
How shall I regain
The heart she has won from me?

Agony!
Beyond power of speech,
When the one thing you want
Is the only thing out of your reach.

RAPUNZEL'S PRINCE:
High in her tower,
She sits by the hour,
Maintaining her hair.
Blithe and becoming and frequently humming
A lighthearted air:
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-

Agony!
Far more painful than yours,
When you know she would go with you
If there only were doors.

BOTH:
Agony! Oh, the torture they teach!

RAPUNZEL'S PRINCE:
What's as intriguing-

CINDERELLA'S PRINCE:
Or half so fatiguing-

BOTH:
As what's out of reach?

CINDERELLA'S PRINCE:
Am I not sensitive,
Clever,
Well-mannered,
Considerate,
Passionate,
Charming,
As kind as I'm handsome
And heir to a throne?

RAPUNZEL'S PRINCE:
You are everything maidens could wish for!

CINDERELLA'S PRINCE:
Then why no-?

RAPUNZEL'S PRINCE:
Do I know?

CINDERELLA'S PRINCE:
The girl must be mad!

RAPUNZEL'S PRINCE:
You know nothing of madness
Till you're climbing her hair
And you see her up there
AS you're nearing her,
All the while hearing her:
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-

BOTH:
Agony!

CINDERELLA'S PRINCE:
Misery!

RAPUNZEL'S PRINCE:
Woe!

BOTH:
Though it's different for each.

CINDERELLA'S PRINCE:
Always ten steps behind-

RAPUNZEL'S PRINCE:
Always ten feet below-

BOTH:
And she's just out of reach.
Agony
That can cut like a knife!

I must have her to wife.
