The Ball Lyrics

Off-Broadway musical (2013)
Natasha Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 - The Ball
Lyrics

ANATOLE
Waiting at the door
Waiting at the door
Waiting

Waiting at the door
Waiting at the door
Waiting

Waiting at the door
Waiting at the door
Waiting
And there she is

(The ball begins; they dance)

NATASHA
I am seized by feelings of vanity and fear
There is no barrier between us
Whispers and moans and ringing in my ear
There is no barrier between us
Divine, delicious
But I do not see or hear anything
I'm borne away to a senseless world
So strange, so remote
I don't know good from bad
Anatole
Anatole
I\'m so frightened

ANATOLE
You are enchanting

NATASHA
And as we danced he pressed my waist and hand
And told me I was

NATASHA & ANATOLE
Bewitching

ANATOLE
And I love you

NATASHA & ANATOLE
Bewitching

ANATOLE
And I love you

NATASHA
And during the ecossaise, he

NATASHA & ANATOLE
Gazed in my eyes

NATASHA
My frightened eyes

Such confident tenderness
I could not say what I had to say

ANATOLE
Don't lower your eyes
I love you
I am in love dear
I am in love

Gaze in my eyes
I love you
You are bewitching
What can I do
Darling what can I do

NATASHA
Don't say such things
I am betrothed
I love another

ANATOLE
Don't speak to me of that!
When I tell you I am madly, madly, in love with you!
Is it my fault that you're enchanting?

NATASHA
I'm so frightened
I don't understand anything tonight

ANATOLE
I'm here now

(Natasha breaks away)

ANATOLE
Natalie!

NATASHA
I can feel your eyes upon me

ANATOLE
Blocking her path, I bring her face close to mine

NATASHA
His large, glittering, masculine eyes are so close to mine
That I see nothing else

ANATOLE
Is it possible that I should never see you again?
I love you madly!
Can I never?
Natalie?

NATASHA
You press my arm
You press my arm

ANATOLE
Natalie?

NATASHA
You're hurting my hands

ANATOLE
Natalie?

NATASHA
I don't understand
I have nothing to say

(They kiss)

NATASHA
Burning lips press to mine
Tell me what just happened

I'm trembling
So frightened

Andrey

But I love you
Of that there is no doubt
How else could all of this have happened?
How else could we have kissed?
It means that I have loved you from the first
It means that you are kind, noble, and splendid
And I could not help loving you

I will love you Anatole
I'll do anything for you

NATASHA & ANATOLE
I'll do anything for you
