“Requiem” from DEAR EVAN HANSEN performed by Mallory Bechtel | DEAR EVAN HANSEN


(“Requiem”) ♪ Why should I play this game of pretend ♪ ♪ Remembering through
a secondhand sorrow ♪ ♪ Such a great son and wonderful friend ♪ ♪ Oh, don’t the tears just pour ♪ ♪ I could curl up and hide in my room ♪ ♪ There in my bed,
still sobbing tomorrow ♪ ♪ I could give in to all of the gloom ♪ ♪ But tell me, tell me what for ♪ ♪ Why should I have a heavy heart ♪ ♪ Why should I start to break in pieces ♪ ♪ Why should I go and fall apart for you ♪ ♪ Why should I play the grieving girl ♪ ♪ and lie ♪ ♪ Saying that I miss you ♪ ♪ And that my world has gone dark ♪ ♪ without your light ♪ ♪ I will sing no requiem ♪ ♪ tonight ♪ ♪ You were the flood
that swallowed us whole ♪ ♪ Refusing a love we endlessly gave you ♪ ♪ You were a fire out of control ♪ ♪ The blaze that couldn’t be tamed ♪ ♪ Why should I have a heavy heart ♪ ♪ Why should I say I’ll keep you with me ♪ ♪ Why should I go and fall apart for you ♪ ♪ Why should I play the grieving girl ♪ ♪ And lie ♪ ♪ Saying that I miss you ♪ ♪ And that my world
has gone dark without ♪ ♪ your light ♪ ♪ I will sing no requiem tonight ♪ ♪ ‘Cause when the villains
fall, the kingdoms never weep ♪ ♪ No one lights a candle to remember ♪ ♪ No, no one mourns at all ♪ ♪ When they lay them down to sleep ♪ ♪ So, don’t tell me
that I didn’t have it ♪ ♪ Right ♪ ♪ Don’t tell me that it
wasn’t black and white ♪ ♪ After all you put me through ♪ ♪ Don’t say it wasn’t true ♪ ♪ That you were not the monster ♪ ♪ that I knew ♪ ♪ ‘Cause I cannot play the grieving girl ♪ ♪ and lie ♪ ♪ Saying that I miss you ♪ ♪ And that my world has gone dark ♪ ♪ I will sing no requiem ♪ ♪ I will sing no requiem ♪ ♪ tonight ♪ ♪ Oh ♪ ♪ Oh ♪
