I remember that night I just might. Rewind!
I remember that night I just might. Rewind! I remember that night. I remember that night… I remember that night I just might regret that night for the rest of my days. I remember those soldier boys tripping over themselves to win our praise. I remember that dreamlike candlelight, like a dream that you can’t quite place. But Alexander I’ll never forget the first time I saw your face. I have never been the same intelligent eyes and a hunger-pang frame. And when you said “hi” I forgot my dang name. Set my heart aflame every part aflame this is not a game. You strike me as a women who has never been satisfied. I’m sure I don’t know what you mean you forget yourself. Your like me- I have never been satisfied. Is that right. I have never been satisfied. my name is Angelica Schuyler. Alexander Hamilton. Where’s your family from. Unimportant there’s a million things I haven’t done but just you wait just you wait. So, so, so. So this is what it feels like t match wits with someone at your level what the **** is the catch? It’s the feeling of freedom of seeing the light! It’s Ben Franklin with a key and a kite- you see it, right. The conversation lasted two minuets maybe three minuets everything we said in total aggrement its a dream and its a bit of a dance. Its a bit of a posture its a bit of a pance. He’s a bit of a flirt but I’m a give it a chance. I asked about his family did you see his answer? His hands started fidgeting he looked askance. He’s penniless. He’s flying by the seat of his pants. Handsome, boy does he know it. Peach-fuzz and he can’t even grow it. I want to take him far away from this place but then I turn and see my sisters face and she is -helpless and I know she is -helpless and her eyes are just -helpless and then I realize three fundamental truths at the exact same time.
-Where are you taking me? I’m about to change your life! Then by all means, lead the way-. – Number One- I’m a girl in a world in which my only job is to marry rich. My father has no sons, so I’m the one who has to social climb for one. So I’m the oldest and the wittiest and the gossip in New York City is insidious. And Alexander is penniless, ha. That doesn’t mean I want to marry him less.- Elizabeth Schuyler. Its a pleasure to meet you. Schuyler? My sister-.- Number Two- He’s after me cause I’m a Schuyler Sister that elevates his status. I have to be naÃ¯ve to set that aside maybe that is why I introduce him to Eliza- now that’s his bride. Nice going Angelica he was right you will never be satisfied.- Thank you for all your service. If it takes fighting a war for us to meet, it well have been worth it. well I’ll leave you to it-.- Number Three- I know my sister like I know my own mind. You will never find anyone as trusting or as kind. If I tell her that I love him she’d be silently resigned. He’d be mine. She would say I’m fine she’d be lying. But when I fantasize at night it’s Alexander’s eyes as I romanticize what might have been if I hadn’t sized him up so quickly. At least my dear Eliza’s his wife. At least I keep his eyes in my life. To the groom! (To the groom) (to the groom) (to the groom) To the bride! (to the bride) (to the bride) (to the bride) From your sister. (Angelica) (Angelica) (Angelica) Who is always by your side. (By your side) (By your side) To your union (to the union) (to the revolution) And the hope that you provide (you provide) (you provide) And may you always (always) be satisfied (be satisfied) And I know (be satisfied) She’ll be happy as his bride. And I know he will never be satisfied. I will never be satisfied.
