Favourite Lyrics In Les Mis
Posted 27 December 2012 - 11:50 PM
For me Cosette's "you will live, Papa, you're going to live - it's too soon, to soon to say goodbye" is one of the most heartbreaking and emotional lyrics in the whole musical.
It gives me chills every time and when I think of Les Mis as an emotional musical I always remember that line. I think it evokes a common feeling amongst all of us when we lose someone so close to us, and that's why it's so beautiful in the theatre.
What are yours?

And for emotional impact, "Come to me, where chains will never bind you".

To love another person is to see the face of God - by far the best.

"I'd Reamed a Dream in time gone by..."
Oh...and the touching 'There's Something About Mary' moment between Eponine and Marius:
"Oh God, it's everywhere...!"

"In the rain, the pavement shines like silver. All the lights are misty in the river..."
And from the Finale:
"Do you hear the people sing, lost in the valley of the night. It is the music of a people who are climbing to the light. For the wretched of the earth, there is a flame that never dies. Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise. They will live again in freedom in the garden of the Lord. They will walk behind the plough-share, they will put away the sword. The chains will be broken and all men will have their reward..."
