Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story Song Lyrics


[WASHINGTON]
Let me tell you what I wish I’d known
When I was young and dreamed of glory
You have no control:
[WASHINGTON AND COMPANY]
Who lives
Who dies
Who tells your story?
[BURR]
President Jefferson:
[JEFFERSON]
I’ll give him this: his financial system is a
Work of genius. I couldn’t undo it if I tried
And I tried
[WASHINGTON AND COMPANY]
Who lives
Who dies
Who tells your story?
[BURR]
President Madison:
[MADISON]
He took our country from bankruptcy to prosperity
I hate to admit it, but he doesn’t get enough credit
For all the credit he gave us
[WASHINGTON AND COMPANY]
Who lives
Who dies
Who tells your story?
[ANGELICA]
Every other founding father story gets told
Every other founding father gets to grow old
[BURR]
But when you’re gone, who remembers your name?
Who keeps your flame?
[BURR AND MEN]
Who tells your story?
Who tells your story?
[ANGELICA AND WOMEN]
Who tells your story?
Your story?
[WOMEN]
Eliza
[ELIZA]
I put myself back in the narrative
[WOMEN]
Eliza
[ELIZA]
I stop wasting time on tears
I live another fifty years
It’s not enough
[COMPANY]
Eliza
[ELIZA]
I interview every soldier who fought by your side
[MULLIGAN/LAFAYETTE/LAURENS]
She tells our story
[ELIZA]
I try to make sense of your thousands of pages of writings
You really do write like you’re running out of—
[ELIZA AND COMPANY]
Time
[ELIZA]
I rely on—
[ELIZA AND ANGELICA]
Angelica
[ELIZA]
While she’s alive—
[ELIZA AND ANGELICA]
We tell your story
[ELIZA]
She is buried in Trinity Church
[ELIZA AND ANGELICA]
Near you
[ELIZA]
When I needed her most, she was right on—
[ELIZA AND COMPANY]
Time
[ELIZA]
And I’m still not through
I ask myself, “What would you do if you had more—”
[ELIZA AND COMPANY]
Time
[ELIZA]
The Lord, in his kindness
He gives me what you always wanted
He gives me more—
[ELIZA AND COMPANY]
Time
[ELIZA]
I raise funds in D.C. for the Washington Monument
[WASHINGTON]
She tells my story
[ELIZA]
I speak out against slavery
You could have done so much more if you only had—
[ELIZA AND COMPANY]
Time
[ELIZA]
And when my time is up, have I done enough?
[ELIZA]
Will they tell our story? [COMPANY]
Will they tell your story?
[ELIZA]
Oh. Can I show you what I’m proudest of?
[COMPANY]
The orphanage
[ELIZA]
I established the first private orphanage in New York City
[COMPANY]
The orphanage
[ELIZA]
I help to raise hundreds of children
I get to see them growing up
[COMPANY]
The orphanage
[ELIZA]
In their eyes I see you, Alexander
I see you every—
[ELIZA AND COMPANY]
Time
[ELIZA]
And when my time is up
Have I done enough?
Will they tell my story?
[COMPANY]
Will they tell your story?
[ELIZA]
Oh, I can’t wait to see you again
It’s only a matter of—
[ELIZA AND COMPANY]
Time
[COMPANY]
Will they tell your story?
Who lives, who dies, who tells your story?
Will they tell your story?
Who lives, who dies—
[COMPANY]
Time…
Time…
Time...
[FULL COMPANY]
Who tells your story?
