"One Day More!" as written by Alain Albert Boublil, Claude Michel Schonberg, Herbert Kretzmer and Jean Marc Natel....
VALJEAN
One day more!
Another day, another destiny.
This never-ending road to Calvary;
These men who seem to know my crime
Will surely come a second time.
One day more!
MARIUS
I did not live until today.
How can I live when we are parted?
VALJEAN
One day more.
MARIUS & COSETTE
Tomorrow you'll be worlds away
And yet with you, my world has started!
EPONINE
One more day all on my own.
MARIUS & COSETTE
Will we ever meet again?
EPONINE
One more day with him not caring.
MARIUS & COSETTE
I was born to be with you.
EPONINE
What a life I might have known.
MARIUS & COSETTE
And I swear I will be true!
EPONINE
But he never saw me there!
ENJOLRAS
One more day before the storm!
MARIUS
Do I follow where she goes?
ENJOLRAS
At the barricades of freedom.
MARIUS
Shall I join my brothers there?
ENJOLRAS
When our ranks begin to form
MARIUS
Do I stay; and do I dare?
ENJOLRAS
Will you take your place with me?
ALL
The time is now, the day is here
VALJEAN
One day more!
JAVERT
One more day to revolution,
We will nip it in the bud!
I will join these little schoolboys,
They will wet themselves with blood!
VALJEAN
One day more!
M. & MME. THENARDIER
Watch 'em run amuck,
Catch 'em as they fall,
Never know your luck
When there's a free for all,
Here a little `dip'
There a little `touch'
Most of them are goners
So they won't miss much!
Students (2 Groups)
1: One day to a new beginning
2: Raise the flag of freedom high!
1: Every man will be a king
2: Every man will be a king
1: There's a new world for the winning
2: There's a new world to be won
ALL
Do you hear the people sing?
MARIUS
My place is here, I fight with you!
VALJEAN
One day more!
MARIUS & COSETTE
I did not live until today.
EPONINE
One more day all on my own!
MARIUS & COSETTE
How can I live when we are parted?
JAVERT(overlapping)
I will join these people's heros
I will follow where they go
I will learn their little Secrets,
I will know the things they know.
VALJEAN
One day more!
MARIUS & COSETTE
Tomorrow you'll be worlds away
EPONINE
What a life I might have known!
MARIUS & COSETTE
And yet with you my world has started
JAVERT(overlapping)
One more day to revolution
We will nip it in the bud
We'll be ready for these
Schoolboys
THENARDIERS(overlapping)
Watch 'em run amok
Catch 'em as they fall
Never know your luck
When there's a free-for-all!
VALJEAN
Tomorrow we'll be far away,
Tomorrow is the judgement day
ALL
Tomorrow we'll discover
What our God in Heaven has in store!
One more dawn
One more day
One day more!
