Stay Alive (Reprise) Lyrics
[ENSEMBLE WOMEN:]
Stay alive...
Stay alive...

[HAMILTON:]
Where's my son?

[DOCTOR:]
Mr. Hamilton, come in
They brought him in a half an hour ago
He lost a lot of blood on the way over

[ENSEMBLE WOMEN:]
Stay alive...

[HAMILTON:]
Is he alive?

[DOCTOR:]
Yes. But you have to understand
The bullet entered just above his hip and
Lodged in his right arm

[HAMILTON:]
Can I see him please?

[DOCTOR:]
I'm doing ev'rything I can, but the wound was
Already infected when he arrived

[HAMILTON:]
Philip

[PHILIP:]
Pa
I did exactly as you said, Pa
I held my head up high

[HAMILTON (PHILIP):]
I know, I know. Shh
I know, I know (High)
Shh. I know you did
Ev'rything just right
(Even before we got to ten)
Shh
(I was aiming for the sky)
I know, I know
I know, I know (I was aiming for the sky)
I know
Save your strength and ([with ENSEMBLE MEN:] stay alive...)

[ELIZA:]
No!

[HAMILTON:]
Eliza

[ELIZA:]
Is he breathing? Is he going to survive this?

[ENSEMBLE MEN:]
Stay alive...

[ELIZA:]
Who did this, Alexander, did you know?

[PHILIP:]
Mom, I'm so sorry for forgetting what you taught me

[ELIZA:]
My son

[PHILIP:]
We played piano

[ELIZA:]
I taught you piano

[PHILIP:]
You would put your hands on mine

[ELIZA:]
You changed the melody every time

[PHILIP:]
Ha, I would always change the line

[ELIZA:]
Shh. I know, I know

[PHILIP:]
I would always change the line

[ELIZA:]
I know, I know

[ELIZA (PHILIP):]
Un deux trois quatre
Cinq six sept huit neuf (Un deux trois quatre)
(Cinq six sept huit neuf)
Good
Un deux trois quatre
Cinq six sept (Un deux trois...)
Huit neuf
Sept huit neuf
Sept huit...
