“One Day More”


Valjean
One day more,
Another day, another destiny,
This never ending road to Calvary;
These men who seem to know my crime
Will surely come a second time,
One day more…

Marius
I did not live until today,
How can I live when we are parted?

Valjean
One day more…

Marius & Cosette
Tomorrow you’ll be worlds away,
And yet with you, my world has started.

Éponine
One more day all on my own

Marius & Cosette
Will we ever meet again?

Éponine
One more day with him not caring

Marius & Cosette
I was born to be with you.

Éponine
What a life I might have known

Marius & Cosette
And I swear I will be true!

Éponine
But he never saw me there…

Enjolras
One more day before the storm!

Marius
Do I follow where she goes!

Enjolras
At the barricades of Freedom!

Marius
Shall I join my brothers there?

Enjolras
When our ranks begin to form

Marius
Do I stay or do I dare?

Enjolras
Will you take your place with me?

All
The time is now
The day is here

Valjean
One day more!

Javert
One day more till revolution,
We will nip it in the bud!
I will join these little schoolboys,
They will wet themselves with blood!

Valjean
One day more!

Thénardier
Watch’m run amuck

Madame Thénardier
Catch’m as they fall

Thénardier & Madame Thénardier
Never know your luck
‘Till there’s a free for all

Thénardier
Here a little dip

Madame Thénardier
There a little touch

Thénardier & Madame Thénardier
Most of them are goners
So they won’t miss much!

Various Students & Thénardiers
One day to a new beginning
Raise the flag of freedom high!
Every man will be a king
Every man will be a king
There’s a new world for the winning
There’s a new world to be won
Do you hear the people sing?

Marius
My place is here,
I fight with you!

Valjean
One day more!

Marius & Cosette
I did not live until today…
Tomorrow you’ll be worlds away
And yet with you my world has started

Éponine
One more day all on my own…

Javert
I will join these people’s heroes
We will follow where they go
We will know their little secrets,
We will know the things they know.

Valjean
One day more!

Thénarider & Madame Thénardier
Watch ’em run amuck
Catch ’em as they fall
Never know your luck
When there’s a free-for-all

Javert
One more day to revolution
We will nip it in the bud
We’ll be ready for these schoolboys
Tomorrow is the judgement day

Valjean
Tomorrow we’ll be far away,
Tomorrow is the judgement day

All
Tomorrow we’ll discover
What our God in Heaven has in store!
One more dawn
One more day
One day more!
