The World Was Wide Enough
Lin-Manuel Miranda
[Company]:One, two, three, four, five
          Six, seven, eight, nine...

[Burr]   :There are ten things you need to know...

[Company]:Number one!

[Burr]   :We rowed across the Hudson at dawn
          My friend William. P Van Ness signed on as my-

[Company]:Number two!

[Burr]   :I watched Hamilton arrive with his crew
          Nathaniel Pendleton and a doctor that he knew

[Company]:Number three!

[Burr]   :I watched Hamilton examine the terrain
          I wish I could tell you what was happening in his brain
          This man has poisoned my political pursuits

[Company]:Most disputes die and no one shoots!
          Number four!

[Burr]   :Hamilton drew first position
          Looking to the world like a man on a mission
          This is a soldier with a marksman's ability
          The doctor turned around so he could have deniability


[Burr]   :Now I didn't know this at the time but we were-

[Burr &  :Near the same spot your son died is that why-


[Burr]   :He examined his gun with such rigor
          I watched as he methodically fiddled with the trigger


[Burr]   :Confession time! Here's what I got
          My fellow soldiers will tell you I'm a terrible shot

[Company]:Number eight!

[Burr &  :Your last chance to negotiate 
          Send in your seconds, see if they can set the record straight

[Burr]   :They won't teach you this in your classes
          But look it up Hamilton was wearing his glasses
          Why? If not to take deadly aim
          It's him or me, the world will never be the same
          I had only one thought before the slaughter
          This man will not make an orphan of my daughter

[Company]:Number nine!

[Burr]   :Look him in the eye, aim no higher
          Summon all the courage you require

          Then count-

[Company]:One, two, three, four, five
          Six, seven, eight, nine-
          Number ten! Paces! FIRE!

[Hamilton]:I imagine death so much it feels more like a memory
           Is this where it gets me? On my feet, several feet ahead of me
           I see it coming do I run or fire my gun or let it be?
           There is no beat, no melody
           Burr, my first friend, my enemy
           Maybe the last face I ever see
           If I throw away my shot is this how you'll remember me?
           What if this bullet is my legacy? Legacy?!?!
           What is a legacy?
           It's planting seeds in a garden you never get to see
           I wrote some notes at the beginning of a song a someone will sing for me
           America, you great unfinished symphony, you sent for me
           You let me make a difference
           A place where even orphaned immigrants can leave their fingerprints
           And rise up
           I'm running out of time, I'm running and my time's up
           Wise up! Eyes up!
           I catch a glimpse of the other side
           Laurens leads a soldiers chorus on the other side
           My son is on the other side
           He's with my mother on the other side
           Washington is watching from the other side
           Teach me how to say goodbye, rise up, rise up
           Rise up, Eliza!
           My love take your time, I'll see you on the other side
           Rise a glass to freedom...
