Frank Wildhorn – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album - His Work And Nothing More lyrics

UTTERSON:
This is not the man I knew!
There's something deeply troubling you!
How long do you plan
To hide away here?
This increasing isolation
Only adds to your frustration
And it could endanger your career!

JEKYLL:
John, I don't need you to turn on me as well!
More than ever now I need a friend!
Can't you see and don't you know I've been through hell?
Don't condemn what you don't comprehend!

UTTERSON:
Henry, I'm not questioning your motives here!
But is what you're seeking worth the price?
You've turned your back on everything you once held dear
You're choosing to ignore your friend's advice!

You have your work
And nothing more!
You are possessed
What is your demon?
You've never been
This way before
You've lost the fire
You built your dream on!

There's something strange
There's something wrong
I see a change
It's like when love dies.
I who have known
You for so long
I see the pain in your eyes

There was a time
You lived your life
And no one lived
The way that you did!
You had a plan
You found a wife
You saw your world
As very few did!

You had it all!
The overall!
You seemed to know
Just what to live for!
But now it seems
You don't at all!
You have your work
Nothing more!

UTTERSON:
You have your work
And nothing more!
You are possessed
What is your demon?

JEKYLL:
Have
I
Be-
Come

You've never been
This way before
You've lost the fire
You built your dream on

My
Work and
Nothing
More?

There's something strange
There's something wrong
I see a change
It's like when love dies.

I
Know
That's
Not

I who have known you
For so long
I see the pain
In your eyes.

What
I'm
Living
For!

LISA:
Father, you know Henry won't just walk away
The only way he knows is straight ahead!

SIR DANVERS:
Lisa, you've not heard a single word I've said
My fear is he's in over his head!
He could lose control and that I dread!
There has been talk
They say he's gone too far!
He's locked himself away in his own world
Pursuing this insanity...

LISA:
It is his work!

SIR DANVERS:
It's more than work!
He is obsessed!
The man is driven!

LISA:
Just give him time!
I ask no more!
His work's a crime to be forgiven!

SIR DANVERS:
There's something strange
Unless I'm blind
I see a change
Of a bizarre kind!

LISA:
There's not at all!
Don't be unkind!
The problem's all in your mind!

SIR DANVERS:
He has his work
And nothing more!
He is obsessed
The man is driven!

UTTERSON:
Have you
Be-
Come

JEKYLL:
Lisa...

LISA:
Just give him time
I ask no more!
His work's a crime
To be forgiven!

UTTERSON:
Your
Work and
Nothing
More?

JEKYLL:
Lisa...

SIR DANVERS:
There's something strange
Unless I'm blind
I see a change
Of a bizarre kind!

UTTERSON:
I
Know
That's
Not

JEKYLL:
Lisa...

LISA:
There's not at all!
Don't be unkind
The problem's all
In your mind!

UTTERSON:
What
You're
Living
For

JEKYLL:
Lisa...

LISA:
Still I pray
Every day
Henry may
Find his way
I pray he
May find
His way

SIR DANVERS:
Dear, I pray
Every day
Henry may
Find his way
I pray he
May find
His way

UTTERSON:
I
Pray
You
May
Find
Your
Way

JEKYLL:
I
Pray
I
May
Find
My
Way

I will pray
Every day
Henry may
Find his way
I pray
He may find I will pray
Every day
You two may
Find your way
I pray
You may find I
Pray
You
May
Find I
Pray
I
May
Find

His way. Your way. Your way. My way.
