Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story – Hamilton Lyrics

Let me tell you what I wish I’d known
When I was young and dreamed of glory
You have no control
Who lives, who dies, who tells your story?
President Jefferson:
I’ll give him this: his financial system is a work of genius
I couldn’t undo it if I tried
And I’ve tried
Who lives, who dies, who tells your story?
President Madison:
He took our country from bankruptcy to prosperity
I hate to admit it
But he doesn’t get enough credit for all the credit he gave us
Who lives, who dies, who tells your story
Every other founding father’s story gets told
Every other founding father gets to grow old
And when you’re gone, who remembers your name?
Who keeps your flame?
Who tells your story?
Who tells your story?
Who tells your story?
I put myself back in the narrative
(Eliza)
I stop wasting time on tears
I live another fifty years
It’s not enough
(Eliza)
I interview every soldier who fought by your side
(She tells our story)
I try to make sense of your thousands of pages of writings
You really do write like you’re running out of time
I rely on Angelica
While she’s alive we tell your story
She is buried in Trinity Church near you
When I needed her most, she was right on time
And I’m still not through
I ask myself, what would you do if you had more time
The Lord, in his kindness
He gives me what you always wanted
He gives me more time
I raise funds in D.C. for the Washington Monument
(She tells my story)
I speak out against slavery
You could have done so much more if you only had time
And when my time is up, have I done enough?
Will they tell your story?
Oh. Can I show you what I’m proudest of?
(The orphanage)
I establish the first private orphanage in New York City
(The orphanage)
I help to raise hundreds of children
I get to see them growing up
(The orphanage)
In their eyes I see you, Alexander
I see you every time
And when my time is up
Have I done enough?
Will they tell your story?
Oh, I can’t wait to see you again
It’s only a matter of time
Will they tell your story? (Time)
Who lives, who dies, who tells your story? (Time)
Will they tell your story? (Time)
Who lives, who dies who tells your story?
