Sonya & Natasha Lyrics

Broadway 2016
Natasha Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 - Sonya & Natasha
Lyrics

SONYA
How was it I noticed nothing?
How could it go so far?
It can't be that she loves him
It can't be
Natasha

(Natasha awakes and sees Sonya)

NATASHA
Sonya, you're back
And with the tender resolve that often comes at the moment of awakening
I embraced my friend
But noticing Sonya's look of embarrassment
My face expressed confusion
And suspicion

Sonya, you've read the letter?

SONYA
Yes

NATASHA
Oh Sonya, I'm glad,
I can't hide it any longer!
Now you know, we love one another!
Oh Sonya, he writes, he writes
He writes, he writes, he writes

SONYA
And Andrey?

NATASHA
Oh Sonya, if you only knew how happy I am!
You don't know what love is

SONYA
But Natasha, can that all be over?

NATASHA
I do not grasp the question

SONYA
Are you refusing Prince Andrey?

NATASHA
Oh, you don't understand anything!
Don't talk nonsense, just listen

SONYA
But I can't believe it, I don\'t understand
How you loved one man a whole year
And suddenly -
You've only known him three days!
Natasha, you're joking!

NATASHA
Three days?
It seems to me I've loved him a hundred years
It seems to me that I've never loved anyone before
Sonya, wait a bit, sit here

I had heard that it happens like this
And you must have heard it too
But it's only now
That I feel such love
It's not the same as before
He's my master and I am his slave
What can I do?
Sonya, what can I do?
I'm so happy
And so frightened
Why can't you understand?
I love him!

SONYA
Then I won't let it come to that, I shall tell!
Bursting into tears

NATASHA
What do you mean?
For God's sake, if you tell, you are my enemy!
You want me to be miserable
You want to tear us apart
For God's sake, Sonya, don't tell anyone, don't torture me
I have confided in you

SONYA
What has happened between you?
What has he said to you?
Why doesn't he come to the house and openly ask for you hand?
Why this secrecy?
Have you thought what his secret reasons may be?

NATASHA
I don't know what the reasons are
But there must be reasons!
Sonya, one can't doubt him!
One can't, one can't! Don't you understand?

SONYA
Does he love you?

NATASHA
Does he love me?
Why, you've read his letter, you've seen him
I can't live without him

SONYA
Natasha, think of our family
And think of Prince Andrey

NATASHA
Andrey said I was free to refuse him

SONYA
But you haven't refused him, or have you?

NATASHA
Perhaps I have
Perhaps all is over between me and Bolkonsky
Would you think so badly of me?

SONYA
I won't succumb to your tender tone Natasha
I don't trust him, Natasha!
I'm afraid for you, Natasha!
Afraid you are going to your ruin

NATASHA
Then I'll go to my ruin, yes I will, as soon as possible!
But it's not your business!
It won't be you, it'll be me, who'll suffer
Leave me alone, yes leave me alone!
I hate you Sonya!
I hate you Sonya!
I hate you, I hate you!
You're my enemy forever!

SONYA
I burst into sobs

(Natasha runs out of the room)

NATASHA
And without a moment's reflection
I wrote the answer to Princess Mary
I'd been unable to write all morning

All our misunderstandings are at an end
Forget everything and forgive me
But I can't be Andrey's wife
