whoa my eponine, can't you hear the words i sing?

a crush can never be resolved
seems like every resolution ends in tragedy
singin' whoa, my eponine

we swore we'd die
to kill this bolshevik
and now it's time
time to put an end to all your woe

(whoa) my eponine, can't you hear the words i sing?

you can't just let the world revolve
seems like every revolution ends in casualty
singin' whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh my eponine

before you go
one thing i'm dying to say
i love you so
and love can bring an end to all your woe

(oh) my eponine, can't you hear the words i sing?

    General Commentthis song is simply amazing when played live in a small venue. when slegr, brummel, and galvez are screaming out at the top of their lungs and the crowd is doing the same thing -- "whoa oh my eponine..."

    General CommentEponine is from Les Miserables... and that's about where the connections end. Oh, except for the line "seems like every revolution ends in casualty", but that's just obvious.

    Song MeaningTrue, it is from Les Misérables, but the connections don't end there. Apart from "every revolution ends in casualty", that refers to the failed uprising that took place in Paris in 1832, in which most of its protagonists died, there are other references to the novel. if you haven't read the novel yet and plan to do so, come here later, I don't want to spoil anything :)

    "a crush can never be resolved" Eponine had a crush on Marius, but she could never tell him.

    "it seems like every resolution ends in tragedy", well in the novel it happens just that, but I think it specially refers to Eponine's death to save Marius.

    "before you go, just these last words for you, I love you so, and love can bring an end to all your woe", Eponine's last wish was that Marius kissed her forehead before she died, and he granted that wish (although he didn't love her).

    I'm not sure if the song is supposed to be sung from Marius to Eponine, or it's just a tribute from Daniel Brummel to her, but one thing I know is I love this song. It made me read Les Misérables, and I loved it too.
