Jekyll & Hyde - I Need to Know Lyrics

2013 Broadway
Jekyll & Hyde the Musical - I Need to Know Lyrics

The song is written by Frank Wildhorn, Leslie Bricusse and Steve Cuden.

I need to know
The nature of the demons that possess
Man's soul!
I need to know
Why man's content to let them make him less than whole.

Why does he revel in murder and madness?
What is it makes him be less than he should?
Why is he doomed not to reach his potential?
His soul is black
When he turns his back
Upon good.

I need to find
A way to get inside the tortured mind of man.
I need to try
To separate the good and evil - if I can.

One thing is certain - the evil is stronger.
Good fights a hopeless and desperate fight.
I must find ways of adjusting the balance
To bring him back from the empty black
Edge of night!

I need to go
Where no man has ventured before
To search for the key to the door
That will end all this tragic and senseless decay!
But how to go?
I need to know!

I need to learn
The secrets of the mind that we cannot discern.
I need to learn
The things that make men pass the point of no return.

Why does a wise man take leave of his senses?
Where is that fine line where sanity melts?
When does intelligence give way to madness?
A moment comes
when a man becomes
Something else ...

I need to know
Why man plays this strange double game!
His hand always close to the flame!
It's a deal with the devil he cannot disclaim!
But what's his aim?
I need to know!

Dear God, guide me!
Show me how to succeed!
With your wisdom inside me,
Henry Jekyll will follow wherever you lead!

I need to see
The truth other men cannot see
To be things that others can't be!
Give me courage to go
Where no angel will go!
And I will go!
I need to know!

[Thanks to Betty for lyrics]
