The World Was Wide Enough (天地廣闊) - Leslie Odom, Jr./Original Broadway Cast of Hamilton/Lin-Manuel Miranda (林-曼努爾·米蘭達)

One two three four five six seven eight nine

 

There are ten things you need to know

Number one

We rowed across the hudson at dawn

 

My friend william p van ness signed on as my

Number two

Hamilton arrived with his crew

Nathaniel pendleton and a doctor that he knew

Number three

I watched hamilton examine the terrain

 

I wish I could tell you what was happening in his brain

This man has poisoned my political pursuits

Most disputes die and no one shoots

Number four

 

Hamilton drew first position looking to the world like a man on a mission

This is a soldier with a marksman's ability

The doctor turned around so he could have deniability

Five

 

Now I didn't know this at the time but we were

Near the same spot son died is that why

Number six

He examined his gun with such rigor

I watched as he methodically fiddled with the trigger

Seven

Confession time here's what I got

My fellow soldiers will tell you I'm a terrible shot

Number eight

Your last chance to negotiate

You send in your second see if they can set the record straight

 

They won't teach you this in your classes but look it up

Hamilton was wearing his glasses

Why if not to take deadly aim

 

It's him or me the world will never be the same

 

I had only one thought before the slaughter

This man will not make an orphan of my daughter

Number nine

Look him in the eye aim no higher

Summon all the courage you require

Then count

One two three four five six seven eight nine

Number ten places fire

 

I imagine death so much it feels more like a memory

 

Is this where it gets me on my feet several feet ahead of me

 

I see it coming do I run or fire my gun or let it be

 

There is no beat no melody

 

Burr my first friend my enemy

 

Maybe the last face I ever see

 

If I throw away my shot is this how you'll remember me

 

What if this bullet is my legacy

Legacy what is a legacy

 

It's planting seeds in a garden you never get to see

 

I wrote some notes at the beginning of a song someone will sing for me

America you great unfinished symphony you sent for me

 

You let me make a difference a place where

Even orphan immigrants can leave their fingerprints and rise up

I'm running out of time I'm running and my time's up wise up eyes up

 

I catch a glimpse of the other side

 

Laurens leads a soldier's on the other side

My son is on the other side he's with my mother on the other side

Washington is watching from the other side

Teach me how to say goodbye

Rise up rise up rise up eliza

 

My love take your time I'll see you on the other side

 

Raise a glass to freedom

 

He aims his pistol at the sky

Wait

 

I strike him right between his ribs

 

I walk towards him but I am ushered away

 

They row him back across the hudson

 

I get a drink

 

I hear wailing in the streets

 

Somebody tells me you'd better hide

 

They say angelica and eliza

 

Were both at his side when he died

 

Death doesn't discriminate between the sinners and the saints

It takes and it takes and it takes

History obliterates

 

Every picture it paints it paints me and all my mistakes

 

When alexander aimed at the sky

He may have been the first one to die

But I'm the one who paid for it

 

I survived but I paid for it

 

Now I'm the villain in your history

 

I was too young and blind to see

 

I should've known I should've known

The world was wide enough for both hamilton and me

 

The world was wide enough for both hamilton and me
