Original Broadway Cast – Emma's Reasons. (Dr. Jekell And Mr Hyde) lyrics

Christiane Noll (Emma) and Raymond Mcleod (Simon)

Emma Curew,
Can This Be You?
What Kind Of Man Is This You've Taken?
Can You Not See, The Kind Of Life This Would Be?
You Are Mistaken.
Time to Awaken, Before It's Too Late.
Before You Forever Determine Your Fate.

But Simon You Knew I Had To Be Free.
What I Choose To Do Is Decided By Me.
From The Day My Mother Died,
My Father Full of Good Intentions.
Treated Me As Though I Were A Young Child.
Maybe His Idea Was Just To Wait Until I Grew Up,
And Then Look At Me and Hope That I'd Be Her.
Its Easy Accept That from a Father,
He'd Rather Things Remained the Way They Were.
But When It Comes To Marriage
I Must Pick Whom I Prefer.
I Am Not the Weak Young Thing You're Seeking Simon.
Some One Seventeen, or Brilliant and Sweet.
I am Not the Protйgй to Waste Your Time On,
I'm Complete.
In Henry's Eyes I See What I Am Meant To Be.
