everyday is agony lyrics – into the woods

Loading...

[cinderella’s prince]
did i abuse her
or show her disdain?
why does she run from me?
if i should lose her,
how shall i regain
the heart she has won from me?

agony!
beyond power of speech,
when the one thing you want
is the only thing out of your reach.

[rapunzel’s prince]
high in her tower,
she sits by the hour,
maintaining her hair.
blithe and becoming and frequently humming
a lighthearted air:
ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-

agony!
far more painful than yours,
when you know she would go with you
if there only were doors.

[both]
agony!
oh, the torture they teach!

[rapunzel’s prince]
what’s as intriguing-

[cinderella’s prince]
or half so fatiguing-

[both]
as what’s out of reach?

[cinderella’s prince]
am i not sensitive,
clever,
well-mannered,
considerate,
p-ssionate,
charming,
as kind as i’m handsome
and heir to a throne?

[rapunzel’s prince]
you are everything maidens could wish for!

[cinderella’s prince]
then why no-?

[rapunzel’s prince]
do i know?

[cinderella’s prince]
the girl must be mad!

[rapunzel’s prince]
you know nothing of madness
till you’re climbing her hair
and you see her up there
as you’re nearing her,
all the while hearing her:
ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-

[both]
agony!

[cinderella’s prince]
misery!

[rapunzel’s prince]
woe!

[both]
though it’s different for each.

[cinderella’s prince]
always ten steps behind-

[rapunzel’s prince]
always ten feet below-

[both]
and she’s just out of reach.
agony!
that can cut like a knife!

i must have her to wife.
