Jekyll And Hyde: The Original Broadway Production – Your Work- And Nothing More lyrics

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

You've never been
This way before -
Where is the fire
You built your dream on?

There's something strange,
There's something wrong.
I see a change -
It's like when hope dies.

I, who have known
You for so long,
I see the pain
In your eyes!

UTTERSON: (Simultaneously)
There was a time
You lived your life,
And no one lived
The way that you did!
You had a plan,
You chose a wife,
You saw the world
As very few did!

JEKYLL: (Simultaneously)
Have
I
Become -

My work
and nothing
More?

UTTERSON: (Simultaneously)
You had it all -
The overall! -
You seemed to know
Just what to live for!

JEKYLL: (Simultaneously)
I
Know
That's
not

UTTERSON: (Simultaneously)

But now, it seems,
You don't at all,
You have you work -
Nothing more!...

JEKYLL: (Simultaneously)
What
I'm
Living
For

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

SIR DANVERS
Emma, 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 the insanity -!

EMMA:
It is his work!

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

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

SIR DANVERS: (Simultaneously)
There's something strange.
Unless I'm blind!

EMMA: (Simultaneously)
Just give him time
I ask no more

SIR DANVERS:
I see a change
Of a bizarre kind!

EMMA: (Simultaneously)
There's not at all!
Don't be unkind.


SIR DANVERS: (Simultaneously)
He's chasing dreams
He'll never find

EMMA:
The problem's all
In your mind!

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

UTTERSON: (Simultaneously)
This increasing
Isolation only adds
To your frustration
And it could
Endanger
Your
Career

JEKYLL: (Simultaneously)
Father...

EMMA: JEKYLL:
Just give him time, Who are they
I ask no more. To judge what I
His work's a crime Am doing they
To be forgiven! Know nothing
Of the
Possibilities I see.

SIR DANVERS: UTTERSON: JEKYLL:
He's chasing Time to awaken And I will
Dreams Before it's too Prove, if I'm
He'll never find! Late Ever
I see a change Permitted to
Of a bizarre kind

EMMA: UTTERSON: JEKYLL:
There's not at all! Before you forever Things are not
Don't be unkind. Determine your fate Wrong just
Problem's all Because they
In your mind! Are new!

EMMA: SIR DANVERS/UTTERSON: JEKYLL: ENSEMBLE:
Still, I pray, Dear, I pray, I pray If you live around
Every day, Every day, I Here[?] lots of people I
Henry may Henry may May Fear will make
Find his way. Find his way! Find Promises
I pray he may I pray he may My They will not
Find his way! Find his way Way! Honor
My dear and the
I will pray, I will pray I Truth is
Every day, Every day. Pray That it's all a
Henry may You two may I Façade
Find his way. Find your way! May
I pray I pray Find
He may find You may find My
His way! Your way! Way!
