Into The Woods – Agony lyrics

Did I abuse her
Or show her disdain?
Why does she run from me?
If I should lose her,
How shall I regain
The heart she has won from me?

Agony!
Beyond power of speech,
When the one thing you want
Is the only thing out of your reach.

[Rapunzel's prince]
High in her tower,
She sits by the hour,
Maintaining her hair.
Blithe and becoming and frequently humming
A lighthearted air:
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-

Agony!
Far more painful than yours,
When you know she would go with you
If there only were doors.

[Both]
Agony!
Oh, the torture they teach!

[Rapunzel's prince]
What's as intriguing-

[Cinderella's prince]
Or half so fatiguing-

[Both]
As what's out of reach?

[Cinderella's prince]
Am I not sensitive,
Clever,
Well-mannered,
Considerate,
Passionate,
Charming,
As kind as I'm handsome
And heir to a throne?

[Rapunzel's prince]
You are everything maidens could wish for!

[Cinderella's prince]
Then why no-?

[Rapunzel's prince]
Do I know?

[Cinderella's prince]
The girl must be mad!

[Rapunzel's prince]
You know nothing of madness
Till you're climbing her hair
And you see her up there
As you're nearing her,
All the while hearing her:
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-

[Both]
Agony!

[Cinderella's prince]
Misery!

[Rapunzel's prince]
Woe!

[Both]
Though it's different for each.

[Cinderella's prince]
Always ten steps behind-

[Rapunzel's prince]
Always ten feet below-

[Both]
And she's just out of reach.
Agony
That can cut like a knife!

I must have her to wife.
