The Greatest Show

(Hugh Jackman)

[Ensemble]
Woah(x9)

[Hugh Jackman]
Ladies and gents, this is the moment you've waited for (woah)
Been searching in the dark, your sweat soaking through the floor (woah)
And buried in your bones there's an ache that you can't ignore
Taking your breath, stealing your mind
And all that was real is left behind

Don't fight it, it's coming for you, running at ya
It's only this moment, don't care what comes after
Your fever dream, can't you see it getting closer
Just surrender 'cause you feel the feeling taking over
It's fire, it's freedom, it's flooding open
It's a preacher in the pulpit and you'll find devotion
There's something breaking at the brick of every wall it's holding I'll let you now, so tell me do you wanna go?

[Chorus: Ensemble & Hugh Jackman]
Where it's covered in all the colored lights
Where the runaways are running the night
Impossible comes true, it's taking over you
Oh, this is the greatest show
We light it up, we won't come down
And the sun can't stop us now
Watching it come true, it's taking over you
Oh, this is the greatest show

[Hugh Jackman]
(Woah) colossal we calm these renegades in the rain
(Woah) where the lost get found in the crown of the circus cage

[Ensemble & Hugh Jackman]
Don't fight it, it's coming for you, running at ya
It's only this moment, don't care what comes after
It's blinding outside and I think that you know
Just surrender 'cause you're calling and you wanna go

[Ensemble & Hugh Jackman]
Where it's covered in all the colored lights
Where the runaways are running the night
Impossible comes true, intoxicating you
Oh, this is the greatest show
We light it up, we won't come down
And the sun can't stop us now
Watching it come true, it's taking over you
Oh, this is the greatest show

[Zac Efron & Keala Settle]
It's everything you ever want
It's everything you ever need
And it's here right in front of you
This is where you wanna be
It's everything you ever want
It's everything you ever need
And it's here right in front of you
This is where you wanna be
This is where you wanna be

[Ensemble, Keala Settle & Zac Efron]
When it's covered in all the colored lights
Where the runaways are running the night
Impossible comes true, it's taking over you
Oh, this is the greatest show
We light it up, we won't come down
And the sun can't stop us now
Watching it come true, it's taking over you
This is the greatest show
When it's covered in all the colored lights
Where the runaways are running the night
Impossible comes true, it's taking over you
Oh, this is the greatest show
We light it up, we won't come down
And the walls can't stop us now
I'm watching it come true, it's taking over you
Oh, this is the greatest show

[Zac Efron & Zendaya]
'Cause everything you want is right in front of you
And you see the impossible is coming true
And the walls can't stop us (now) now, yeah

[With Ensemble]
This is the greatest show
This is the greatest show
This is the greatest show
This is the greatest show
This is the greatest show
This is the greatest show
This is the greatest
This is the greatest show

A Million Dreams

(Ziv Zaifman, Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams)

[Ziv Zaifman]
I close my eyes and I can see
The world that's waiting up for me
That I call my own
Through the dark, through the door
Through where no one's been before
But it feels like home

They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy
They can say, they can say I've lost my mind
I don't care, I don't care, so call me crazy
We can live in a world that we design

[Chorus: Ziv Zaifman]
'Cause every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it's gonna take
A million dreams for the world we're gonna make

There's a house we can build
Every room inside is filled
With things from far away
The special things I compile
Each one there to make you smile
On a rainy day

They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy
They can say, they can say we've lost our minds
I don't care, I don't care if they call us crazy
Runaway to a world that we design

[Chorus: Hugh Jackman]
Every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it's gonna take
A million dreams for the world we're gonna make

[Michelle Williams, with Hugh Jackman]
However big, however small
Let me be part of it all
Share your dreams with me
You may be right, you may be wrong
But say that you're bring me along
To the world you see
To the world I close my eyes to see
I close my eyes to see

[Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, together]
Every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
A million dreams, a million dreams
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it's gonna take
A million dreams for the world we're gonna make

A Million Dreams (Reprise)

(Austyn Johnson, Cameron Seely, Hugh Jackman)

Every night I lie in bed

A million dreams are keeping me awake

[Austyn Johnson & Cameron Seely]
I think of what the world could be

A million dreams is all it's gonna take

[Hugh Jackman]
A million dreams for the world we're gonna make

Come Alive

(Hugh Jackman, Keala Settle, Daniel Everidge, Zendaya & The Greatest Showman Ensemble)

[Hugh Jackman]
You stumble through your days
Got your head hung low
Your skies are a shade of grey
Like a zombie in a maze
You're asleep inside
But you can shake awake

'Cause you're just a dead man walking
Think of that your only option
But you can flip the switch and brighten up your darkest day
Sun is up and the color's blinding
Take the world and redefine it
Leave behind your narrow mind
You'll never be the same

Come alive, come alive
Go and ride your light
Let it burn so bright
Reach it up
To the sky
And it's open wide
You're electrified

And the world becomes a fantasy
And you're more than you could ever be
'Cause you're dreaming with your eyes wide open
And you know, you can't go back again
To the world that you were living in
'Cause you're dreaming with your eyes wide open
So, come alive!

I see it in your eyes
You believe that lie
That you need to hide your face
Afraid to step outside
So you lock the door
But don't you stay that way!

[Keala Settle]
No more living in those shadows
You and me, we know how that goes
[Daniel Everidge]
'Cause once you see it, oh you'll never, never be the same
[Both]
Little bit of understandin'
Bottle up, but keep on shinin'
[All]
You can prove there's more to you
[Hugh Jackman]
You cannot be afraid

[Ensemble]
Come alive, come alive
Go and ride your light
Let it burn so bright
Reach it up
To the sky
And it's open wide
You're electrified

And the world becomes a fantasy
And you're more than you could ever be
'Cause you're dreaming with your eyes wide open
And we know, we can't be go back again
To the world that we were living in
'Cause we're dreaming with our eyes wide open
So, come alive!

[Ensemble, Zendaya, and Hugh Jackman]
Come one!
Come all!
Come in!
Come on!
[Zendaya]
To anyone who's bursting(?) with a dream
Come one!
Come all!
You hear!
The call!
[Hugh Jackman]
To anyone who's searching for a way, to break free

[Ensemble and Hugh Jackman]
And the world becomes a fantasy
And you're more than you could ever be
'Cause you're dreaming with your eyes wide open
And we know, we can't be go back again
To the world that we were living in
'Cause we're dreaming with our eyes wide open

[Ensemble]
And the world becomes a fantasy
And you're more than you could ever be
'Cause you're dreaming with your eyes wide open
And we know, we can't be go back again
To the world that we were living in
'Cause we're dreaming with our eyes wide open

'Cause we're dreaming with our eyes wide open
So come alive

The Other Side

(Hugh Jackman & Zac Efron)

BARNUM:
Right here, right now
I'll put the offer out
I don't wanna chase you down but I know you see it

You run with me
And I can cut you free
Out of the treachery of all you keep in

So trade that typical
For something colorful
And if it's crazy live a little crazy
You can play it sensible
A king of conventional
Or you can risk it all and see

Don't you wanna get away
From the strainful part you gotta play
'Cause I got what you need to come with me and take the ride
It'll take you to the other side

'Cause you can do like you do
Or you can do like me
Stay in the cage or you finally take the key
Oh! Damn! suddenly you're free to fly
It'll take you to the other side

PHILIP:
Okay, my friend
You wanna cut me in
Well I hate to tell you, but it just won't happen

So thanks, but no
I think I'm good to go
'Cause I quite enjoy the life you say I'm trapped in

Now I admire you
And that whole show you do
You're onto something
Really, it's something
But I live among the swells
And we don't pick up peanut shells
I'll have to leave that up to you

Don't you know that I'm okay
With this uptown part I get to play
'Cause I've got what I need and I don't wanna take the ride
Don't need to see the other side

So go and do like you do
I'm good to do like me
Ain't in a cage so I don't need to take the key
Oh! Damn! Can't you see I'm doing fine?
I don't need to see the other side

BARNUM:
Is this really how you like to spend your days?
Wiskey and misery and parties and plays

PHILIP:
If I were mixed up with you
I'd be the talk of the town
Disgraced and disowned
Another one of the clowns

BARNUM:
But you would finally live a little
Finally laugh a little
Just let me give you the freedom to dream and it'll wake you up
And cure your aching
Take your walls and start 'em braking
Now that's a deal that seems worth taking

But I guess I'll leave that up to you

PHILIP:
Well it's intriguing
But to go would cost me greatly
So what percentage of the show would I be taking?

BARNUM:
Fair enough,
You'd want a piece of all the action
I'd give you seven
We could shake and make it happen.

PHILIP:
I wan't born this morning
Eighteen would be just fine

BARNUM:
Why not just go ahead and ask for nickles on a dime?

PHILIP:
Fifteen

BARNUM:
I'd do eight

PHILIP:
Twelve

BARNUM:
Maybe nine

PHILIP:
Ten

BARNUM & PHILIP:
Don't you wanna get away
To a whole new part you're gonna play
'Cause I got what you need to come with me and take the ride
To the other side

So we can do like I do
So we can do like me
Forget the cage 'cause we know how to make the key
Oh! Damn! Suddenly we're free to fly
We're going to the other side

PHILIP:
So we can do like I do!

BARNUM:
To the other side

PHILIP:
So we can do like me

BARNUM:
We're going to the other side

PHILIP:
'Cause if you do you're going

BARNUM & PHILIP:
To the other side
We're going to the other side´╗┐

Never Enough

(Loren Allred)

I'm trying to hold my breath
Let it stay this way
Can't let this moment end
You set off a dream with me
Getting louder now
Can you hear it echoing?
Take my hand
Will you share this with me?
'Cause darling without you

All the shine of a thousand spotlights
All the stars we steal from the nightsky
Will never be enough
Never be enough
Towers of gold are still too little
These hands could hold the world but it'll
Never be enough
Never be enough

For me
Never, never
Never, never
Never, for me
For me
Never enough
Never enough
Never enough
For me
For me
For me

All the shine of a thousand spotlights
All the stars we steal from the nightsky
Will never be enough
Never be enough
Towers of gold are still too little
These hands could hold the world but it'll
Never be enough
Never be enough

For me
Never, never
Never, never
Never, for me
For me
Never enough
Never, never
Never enough
Never, never
Never enough
For me
For me
For me

For me

This Is Me

(Keala Settle)

I'm not a stranger to the dark
Hide away, they say
'Cause we don't want your broken parts
I've learned to be ashamed of all my scars
Run away, they say
No one will love you as you are

But I won't let them break me down to dust
I know that there's a place for us
For we are glorious

When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I'm meant to be, this is me
Look out 'cause here I come
And I'm marching on to the beat I drum
I'm not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me

Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh

Another round of bullets hits my skin
Well, fire away 'cause today, I won't let the shame sink in
We are bursting through the barricades
And reach above the sun (we are warriors)
Yeah, that's what we'll become

Won't let them break me down to dust
I know that there's a place for us
For we are glorious

When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
Gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I'm meant to be, this is me
Look out 'cause here I come
And I'm marching on to the beat I drum
I'm not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me

...This is me

And I know that I deserve your love
There's nothing I'm not worthy of
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
This is brave, this is proof
This is who I'm meant to be, this is me

Look out 'cause here I come (look out 'cause here I come)
And I'm marching on to the beat I drum (marching on, marching, marching on)
I'm not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me

I'm gonna send a flood
Gonna drown them out
(...this is me)

Rewrite The Stars

(Zac Efron & Zendaya)

[Zac Efron]
You know I want you
It's not a secret I try to hide
I know you want me
So don't keep saying our hands are tied
You claim it's not in the cards
But fate is pulling you miles away
And out of reach from me
But you're here in my heart
So who can stop me if I decide
That you're my destiny?

What if we rewrite the stars?
Say you were made to be mine
Nothing could keep us apart
You'd be the one I was meant to find
It's up to you, and it's up to me
No one can say what we get to be
So why don't we rewrite the stars?
Maybe the world could be ours
Tonight

[Zendaya]
You think it's easy
You think I don't want to run to you
But there are mountains
And there are doors that we can't walk through
I know you're wondering why
Because we're able to be
Just you and me
Within these walls
But when we go outside
You're going to wake up and see that it was hopeless after all

No one can rewrite the stars
How can you say you'll be mine?
Everything keeps us apart
And I'm not the one you were meant to find
It's not up to you
It's not up to me
When everyone tells us what we can be
How can we rewrite the stars?
Say that the world can be ours
Tonight

[Zac Efron & Zendaya]
All I want is to fly with you
All I want is to fall with you
So just give me all of you

[Zendaya]
It feels impossible

[Zac Efron]
It's not impossible

[Zendaya]
Is it impossible?

[Zac Efron & Zendaya]
Say that it's possible

How do we rewrite the stars?
Say you were made to be mine?
Nothing can keep us apart
Cause you are the one I was meant to find
It's up to you
And it's up to me
No one can say what we get to be
And why don't we rewrite the stars?
Changing the world to be ours

[Zendaya]
You know I want you
It's not a secret I try to hide
But I can't have you
We're bound to break and
My hands are tied

Tightrope

(Michelle Williams)

Some people long for a life that is simple and planned
Tied with a ribbon
Some people won't sail the sea 'cause they're safer on land
To follow what's written
But I'd follow you to the great unknown
Off to a world we call our own

Hand in my hand
And we promised to never let go
We're walking a tightrope
High in the sky
We can see the whole world down below
We're walking a tightrope
Never sure, never know how far we could fall
But it's all an adventure
That comes with a breathtaking view
Walking a tightrope

With you, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
With you, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
With you

Mountains and valleys, and all that will come in between
Desert and ocean
You pulled me in and together we're lost in a dream
Always in motion
So I risk it all just to be with you
And I risk it all for this life we choose

Hand in my hand
And you promised to never let go
We're walking a tightrope
High in the sky
We can see the whole world down below
We're walking a tightrope
Never sure, will you catch me if I should fall?
Well, it's all an adventure
That comes with a breathtaking view
Walking a tightrope

With you, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
With you, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
With you
With you, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
With you, ooh, ooh, ooh
With you

Never Enough (Reprise)

(Loren Allred)

All the shine of a thousand spotlights
All the stars we steal from the night sky
Will never be enough
Never be enough

Towers of gold are still too little
These hands could hold the world but it'll
Never be enough
Never be enough

From Now On

(Hugh Jackman & The Greatest Showman Ensemble)

[Hugh Jackman]
I saw the sun begin to dim
And felt that winter wind
Blow cold
A man learns who is there for him
When the glitter fades and the walls won't hold
Cause from then, rubble
What remains
Can only be what's true
If all was lost
Is more I gain
Cause it led me back
To you

From now on
These eyes will not be blinded by the lights
From now on
What's waited till tomorrow starts tonight
Tonight
Let this promise in me start
Like an anthem in my heart
From now on
From now on

I drank champagne with kings and queens
The politicians praised my name
But those are someone else's dreams
The pitfalls of the man I became
For years and years
I chased their cheers
The crazy speed of always needing more
But when I stop
And see you here
I remember who all this was for

And from now on
These eyes will not be blinded by the lights
From now on
What's waited till tomorrow starts tonight
It starts tonight
And let the promise in me start
Like an anthem in my heart
From now on
From now on
From now on

[Ensemble]
And we will come back home
And we will come back home
Home, again! (x3)

[Hugh Jackman]
From now on!

[Ensemble]
And we will come back home
And we will come back home
Home, again! (x3)

[Hugh Jackman]
Yes!

[Ensemble]
And we will come back home
And we will come back home
Home, again! (x1)

[Ensemble]
From now on!

[Hugh Jackman]
These eyes will not be blinded by the lights!

[Ensemble]
From now on!

[Hugh Jackman]
Whats waited till tomorrow starts tonight!
It starts tonight!
Let the promise in me start
Like an anthem in my heart

[Ensemble]
From now on

[Hugh Jackman]
From now on
From now on!

[Ensemble]
And we will come back home
And we will come back home
Home, again! (x3)

From now on
From now on
Home, again! (x2)
