On Your Feet - Famous Lyrics

Broadway 2016 - The Story of Emilio & Gloria Estefan
On Your Feet! the Musical - Famous Lyrics

GLORIA: (spoken)
Anyway, I'm thinking about you.

How in this world can I go on
Wondering if you'll think
Of me when I'm gone?
Shielding my eyes from
The pitiless light of the glare
Do you care?

When in this world is it enough?
I never thought
It could be quite this rough
Living my life
And as millions of people all stare
You're not there

Why is each step that I take
All things that should not be at stake
Are left behind

EMILIO: (spoken)
Espera. Espera. Repítemelo. Babe,
The Miami Herald ran a headline that Gloria
and Emilio have the world in their hands,
talking about the worldwide sales.

TUTOR: (spoken)
Okay. April 19, 1775.

NAYIB: (spoken)
The first shots of the Revolutionary War were fired in Concord,
Massachusetts. Hey! It's snowing!
Papi, look at the window, it's snowing!

EMILIO: (spoken)
I see, Papa, I see!

There's always something to lose when you win
Still, if those are the rules of the game, deal me in
Though it's been hard on my pride
It's been one hell of a ride
I didn't set out to be

NAYIB: (spoken)

EMILIO: (spoken)
I'm glad you're here. Come on, Papi,
Let's go outside for a minute, okay?
