Lin-Manuel Miranda Lyrics

History Has Its Eyes On You Lyrics
[WASHINGTON:]
I was younger than you are now
When I was given my first command
I led my men straight into a massacre
I witnessed their deaths firsthand
I made every mistake
And felt the shame rise in me
And even now I lie awake

[WASHINGTON (LAURENS/MULLIGAN):]
Knowing history has its eyes on me (Whoa oh oh...)
(Whoa...)
(Whoa...)
(Yeah)

[HAMILTON/WASHINGTON (COMPANY):]
History has its eyes on me (Whoa oh oh...)
(Whoa...)
(Whoa...)
(Yeah)

[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

[WASHINGTON:]
I know that we can win
I know that greatness lies in you
But remember from here on in

[WASHINGTON/HAMILTON AND MEN (ENSEMBLE):]
History has its eyes on you (Whoa oh oh...)
(Whoa...)
(Whoa...)

[FULL COMPANY:]
History has its eyes on you
