Pursue The Truth / Facade (Reprise 1) / Emma's Reason

Pursue The Truth

JEKYLL:
How can I pursue the truth,
When they can block each step I take?

UTTERSON:
Henry, you have come too far -
Remember what you have at stake!

JEKYLL:
John, I know I'm right!
I must let my vision guide me!
I'm so weary of the fight!
There's so little left inside me!

UTTERSON:
If you know that you are right,
Then you've got to see it through,
You've got to see it through!

JEKYLL:
Seven years ago,
I started out on this alone,
And it's alone I'll see it through
To its conclusion!

Who are they
To judge what I am doing?
They know nothing
Of the endless possibilities I see!
It's ludicrous I'm bound by their decision!

UTTERSON:
Seems vision
Is a word
They never heard!

JEKYLL:
If it mattered less,
I'd treat them with derision -
It's absurd!

UTTERSON:
And yet, the fact remains,
Those bastards hold the reins!

Facade (Reprise 1)

ENSEMBLE
If you live around here,
You need cash in the bank,
'Cause the houses 'round here
Are all flashy and swank,
An' the front bit
Is what's called a facade!

If you live around here,
You need lots of panache!
If you live in town, dear,
Then you must cut a dash!
'Tisn't hard, dear,
To create a facade!

Here tonight it's festive -
But the guests are getting restive -
'Cause the guest of honour's
Causing a dilemma!

Doctor Jekyll Tardy
For his own engagement party -
His betrothal
To sir Danvers' daughter, Emma!

Emma's Reason

STRIDE:
Emma Carew,
Can this be you?
What kind of man
Is this you've taken?

Can you not see
The kind of life
That this would be?
You are mistaken!
Time to awaken,
Before it's too late,
Before you forever
Determine your fate!

EMMA:
But, Simon, you knew
I had to be free.
What I choose to do
Is decided by me!

From the day my mother died,
My father , full of good intentions,
Treated me as though I were a young child.
Maybe his idea was just to wait
Until I grew up,
And then look at me
And hope that I'd be her.

It's easy to accept that
From a father
He'd rather
Things remained the way they were.
But when it comes to marriage,
I must pick whom I prefer!
I am not the weak young thing
You're seeking, Simon,
Someone seventeen, obedient and sweet.
I am not the prot?g?e
To waste your time on.
I'm complete -
In Henry's eyes I see
What I am meant to be!
