The Trade / The Swim Lyrics

A thrilling musical from Ryan Scott Oliver and Hunter Foster
Jasper in Deadland The Musical - The Trade / The Swim Lyrics

[Jasper] (spoken)
I give up my life for her.

[Agnes]
Jasper, no!

[Jasper]
We have one love heart between us, and I want her to have it.

(sung)
Ask to feel the touch and say you won’t resist.
You will be cheated, but you will be kissed.
Let nothing be missed,
Please say you’ll exist and let there be light, and a song from me.

(spoken)
Agnes, go back and live, and I will be here. Your best friend, waiting for you.

[Agnes] (sung)
Goodbye, Jasper goodbye.

[Jasper]
Eyes dry...

[Persephone] (spoken)
Wait! Perhaps... a trade could be made. Jasper, Agnes, consider my heart softened,
as I make a sacrifice for you. I’ll stay. One more day of cold,
bitter winter so you both can leave; for you now share one heart.
But, I’m afraid it’s not over yet, for Jasper, you must lead Agnes up through the river;
but you must not look back at her no matter what happens.
If you do, you will never see eachother again.

[Jasper] (sung)
And we won’t dare look back.

[Jasper & Agnes]
And we won’t dare look back.

[Jasper]
Just meet me at the touch of water, for one more lap with me.

[Agnes]
We’ll push through the black,

[Jasper]
And we won’t look back.

[Agnes]
We’ll keep our style through the millionth mile,

[Jasper & Agnes]
And when it’s more than we can stand...
We’ll go stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke.

[Persephone]
We’ll go stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke.

[Agnes & Company]
We’ll go stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke.
We’ll go stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke.

[Jasper]
Agnes, Agnes, I’ll save you Agnes.

[Persephone]
Hello, Jasper hello.

(spoken)
Don’t look back, Jasper. She’s there. She’s always been there; remember the song.

[Jasper] (sung)
Oh, let it begin.
And one day, let it end.
Let it fall to pieces,
and what’s meant to we’ll mend,
with life to end and days to spend for life!

(spoken)
Agnes? No, no, please don’t die, please.
I’m sorry.
I should’ve been there.

(sung)
I give my life...
I give my life...
I’d give my life to share with you a song.

(spoken)
I love you.

[Agnes]
-coughing-

[Jasper]
Agnes!

[Agnes]
Jasper...? I did it, I jumped in! You would’ve been so proud of me!
...Why is it snowing? And in the middle of spring?

[Jasper]
An act of God, I guess.
Or Goddess.

[Thanks to Jasper for lyrics]
