MIRANDA, Lin-Manuel


The room where it happened
…..
Diametric’ly opposed, foes.

They emerge with a compromise, having

opened doors that were

Previously closed,

Bros.

The immigrant emerges with unprecedented financial power,

a system he can shape however he wants.

The Virginians emerge with the nation’s capital.

And here’s the pièce de résistance:

Wait for it

[BURR]

Theodosia writes me a letter every day
I'm keeping the bed warm while her husband is away
He's on the British side in Georgia
He's trying to keep the colonies in line
But he can keep all of Georgia

Theodosia, she's mine

Love doesn't discriminate
Between the sinners
And the saints

It takes and it takes and it takes
And we keep loving anyway
We laugh and we cry
And we break
And we make our mistakes

And if there's a reason I'm by her side
When so many have tried
Then I'm willing to wait for it
I'm willing to wait for it

Death doesn’t discriminate
Between the sinners
And the saints
It takes and it takes and it takes
And we keep living anyway
We rise and we fall
And we break

And we make our mistakes
And if there’s a reason I’m still alive
When everyone who lo ves me has died
I’m willing to wait for it
I’m willing to wait for it

What is it like in his shoes?

Hamilton doesn’t hesitate
He exhibits no restraint
He takes and he takes and he takes

And he keeps winning anyway
He changes the game
He plays and he raises the stakes

And if there’s a reason
He seems to thrive when so few survive, then Goddamnit—
