Once on This Island the Musical - Forever Yours (Reprise) Lyrics
(Music by Stephen Flaherty and Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens)
There were promises
Made in the darkness
Promises made in your sleep
Promises the gods demand you keep
You gave him love
Love he would soon betray
You gave him life
I am the price you'll pay
Sure as the grave
You must accept what is
Now your life is forever mine...
(He pulls a knife and seems about to kill
Trade yours for his!
You loved him. You saved him. And he betrayed
you. Why should you die for him now?
Kill him, Ti Moune.
Kill the love you feel.
Prove that death is stronger than love and
you can have your own life again.
Just as if you had never loved at all.
I am the
The Courage of A dreamer
I am the car
The human Heart
Now his life
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah...
Daniel, I love you.
And Ti Moune was cast out of the Hotel
Beauxhomme, and the gates slammed shut
The gods sent me. They want me to be with
Him. Tell Daniel I'm here. Tell him. Tell him
[Thanks to Dani Starr for lyrics]
