I Must Go On, Possessed, In the Silence of the Night

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

[HENRY]

I must go on with the work I'm committed to,

why would I not when my theories are true?

And I will prove, if I'm ever permitted to,

things are not wrong just because they are -

[LISA]

Henry,

listen, Henry,

I can help you,

if you let me

[HENRY]

They are pathetic, they are lying(?)

[LISA]

Let me calm the storm inside you,

Henry please

[HENRY]

I knew my fate was sealed and signed,

[LISA]

Let me put your mind at ease,

[HENRY]

Their grotesque prevarication,

[LISA]

Must I beg you on my knees?

[HENRY]

It could kill my reputation

[LISA]

What is lost you can regain,

but for now some sleep will ease the pain

Please, Henry

[HENRY]

All my life I've been possessed

by one great all-consuming quest,

and that's my driving reason to survive

[LISA]

Just take my hand in yours

[HENRY] (simultaneously)

I live to see that dream come true,

my world consists of it and you,

I have got to keep that dream alive

[LISA]

Henry, I adore you, always have done always will do,

but I too have dreams

Maybe not as grand as yours

or hard to understand as yours

but nonetheless my dreams

You and I together will be-

[HENRY]

-darling, try to see what I see-

[LISA]

-Henry please believe me,

I see everything there is to see -

[HENRY]

-then what, by god, am I supposed to do?

[LISA]

If both of us believe in you,

and I know that we do,

then for a moment leave it be,

relax and turn your thoughts to me and you



In the silence of the night

I simply need to know you're near

for all my fears to disappear

[HENRY]

In the shadows of the light

you fill my heart with such desire

you set my very soul on fire

[LISA]

I feel complete again

and life is sweet again

[HENRY]

There's a wonder to the night

so many secrets we can share

that only lovers dare to share

So darling, if you dare,

then let me take you there
