WAR PAINT the Musical - Finale Lyrics

Elizabeth
Did we make women freer?
Or did we help enslave them?

Helena
Perhaps they will forgive us
When they look at what we gave them

Helena (spoken)
For five decades we have been the bitterest of enemies.
And it has paid off nicely.
Dangerous to tinker with success.

Elizabeth (spoken)
Impolitic, I think, to enter arm in arm through the same door?

Helena
You go your way, I go mine.

Elizabeth
Our little tête-à-tête -

Helena
It never happened. Our secret.

Both
For fifty years we lead the way
But fifty years beyond today
Who else will stand for beauty in the world?
