The Proposal Lyrics


by Original Broadway Cast. From Jane Eyre: The Musical.


ROCHESTER
Jane! You are to undertake the education of the five daughters of Mrs. Dionysus O'Gall at Bitternut Lodge, in Connaught, Ireland.

JANE
Ireland! I really must object...

ROCHESTER
Jane, this is best末

JANE
I don't agree, sir.

ROCHESTER
Jane, when you're gone
I will miss our walks
Our little talks
The look of sunlight on your face
Soon to be a memory

Jane, when you're gone
I'll miss your voice
And I'll think of you
Out on the glen
You seemed so like a fairy then

JANE
Such a distance, why so far sir?

ROCHESTER
Oh, does that perturb you?

JANE
It's a long way...

ROCHESTER
Well, from what, Jane?
Why should that disturb you?
Jane, we've been friends

JANE
It's getting late, sir.

ROCHESTER
Jane, what is wrong?

JANE
I must go in, sir.

ROCHESTER
Jane, is that a tear that's in your eye?

JANE
Yes, it is, and I cry because the pain末
Because the grief is slowly turning to rage
I'm like a bird upon the brief
Who wishes she were never born into this cage

I know you think because I'm plain
That I feel nothing inside
If I were rich, if I were beautiful...

...Then I should think I would make it as hard for you to leave me as it is for me to leave you! I love Thornfield and I grieve to
leave it, for here I have talked face to face with what I reverence, what I delight in末with an original, a vigorous, an expanded
mind末but I see the necessity of departure and it is like looking on the necessity of death.

ROCHESTER
Where do you see the necessity?

JANE
In the shape of your bride.

ROCHESTER
Jane, there is place for you
And Jane, it is here with me
To live in this house
To stand as my wife

JANE
What do you mean?

ROCHESTER
Jane, you are my second self
And Jane, don't you see the truth
That you are the heart of my life?

JANE
But what of Blanche?

ROCHESTER
She's gone, never to return
The gypsy told her that my wealth
Wasn't half of my first claim
And Blanche Ingram, bless her heart
Took the bait, and not my name

I would not...I could never have married Blanche Ingram... because my equal is here, and my likeness.

JANE
Why did you make me believe you loved her?

ROCHESTER
To make you jealous.

JANE
Why?

ROCHESTER
Jane, to make you as in love with me
As I am in love with you末be my wife.
Say my name!

JANE
Edward!

ROCHESTER
Will you marry me, Jane Eyre?
You mean more to me than life
What's your answer? Tell me now!
Do you consent to be my wife?

God forgive me, you are not getting away from me!

If I had a string under my ribs
Knotted to you, connecting our frames
I'd be afraid that many a mile would sever the tie
And I would take to bleeding inwardly

Are you my savior, are you my saint?
Protecting me now with communion and light?
Stand as my equal, be my reward
Slay custom and code with love as your sword

Childish, slender creature
My hope of heaven lies
Inside your precious eyes
I hear your cherished voice
Across the moorland skies

Will I not guard and cherish you
As long as I shall live?
Will I not sanction you
With all the love my heart can give?

And I wash my hands of every youthful crime
Defy them all末God will give me time
And you will lead me, blind

JANE
Yes, sir. I will marry you.

ROCHESTER
Childish slender creature
My hope of heaven lies
Inside your precious eyes
I hear your cherished voice
Across the moorland skies

Your youth and spirit
Tender nature
Gentle presence
Flies us up to heaven
Across the skies
