Lin-Manuel Miranda Dear Theodosia

[Burr:]

Dear Theodosia, what to say to you?

You have my eyes. You have your mother’s name

When you came into the world, you cried and it broke my heart

I’m dedicating every day to you

Domestic life was never quite my style

When you smile, you knock me out, I fall apart

And I thought I was so smart

You will come of age with our young nation

We’ll bleed and fight for you, we’ll make it right for you

If we lay a strong enough foundation

We’ll pass it on to you, we’ll give the world to you

And you’ll blow us all away…

Someday, someday

Yeah, you’ll blow us all away

Someday, someday

[Hamilton:]

Oh Philip, when you smile I am undone

My son

Look at my son

Pride is not the word I’m looking for

There is so much more inside me now

Oh Philip, you outshine the morning sun

My son

When you smile, I fall apart

And I thought I was so smart

My father wasn’t around

[Burr:]

My father wasn’t around

[Hamilton:]

I swear that

[Burr/Hamilton:]

I’ll be around for you

[Hamilton:]

I’ll do whatever it takes

[Burr:]

I’ll make a million mistakes

[Burr/Hamilton:]

I’ll make the world safe and sound for you…

…Will come of age with our young nation

We’ll bleed and fight for you, we’ll make it right for you

If we lay a strong enough foundation

We’ll pass it on to you, we’ll give the world to you

And you’ll blow us all away…

Someday, someday

Yeah, you’ll blow us all away

Someday, someday
