Lyrics to Eponine's most famous song "On My Own"
And now I’m all alone again,
nowhere to turn, no one to go to.
Without a home, without a friend
without a face to say hello to.
And now the night is near,
now I can make believe he’s here.
Sometimes I walk alone at night
when everybody else is sleeping.
I think of him and then I’m happy
with the company I’m keeping.
The city goes to bed,
and I can live inside my head.
On my own,
pretending he’s beside me.
all alone
I walk with him till morning.
without him
I feel his arms around me,
and when I lose my way I close my eyes
and he has found me.
in the rain
the pavement shines like silver,
all the lights
are misty in the river,
in the darkness
the trees are full of starlight,
and all I see is him and me
forever and forever.
And I know
it’s only in my mind
that I’m talking to myself,
and not to him.
and allthough,
I know that he is blind,
still I say,
there’s a way for us
I love him
but when the night is over,
he is gone
the river’s just a river.
without him
the world around me changes,
the trees are bare and everywhere,
the streets are full of strangers.
I love him
but every day I’m learning,
all my life
I’ve only been pretending.
without me
his world will go on turning,
a world that’s full of happiness
that I have never known.
I love him
I love him
I love him
but only on my own.

Lyrics to "Rue Plumet"
'Parnasse, what are you doing
So far out of our patch?
This house, we're going to do it
Rich man, plenty of scratch
You remember he's the one
Who got away the other day
Got a number on his chest
Perhaps a fortune put away!
Oh Lord, somebody help me!
Dear God, what'll I do?
He'll think this is an ambush
He'll think I'm in it too!
What'll I do, what'll I say?
I've got to warn them here
I've got to find a way.
[Thenardier arrives with the rest of his gang.]
This is his lair
I've seen the old fox around
He keeps himself to himself
He's staying close to the ground
I smell profit here!
Ten years ago
He came and paid for Cosette
I let her go for a song
It's time we settled the debt
This'll cost him dear
What do I care
Who you should rob
Give me my share
Finish the job!
You shut your mouth
Give me your hand
[He notices Eponine but doesn't recognize her.]
What have we here?
Who is this hussy?
It's your brat Eponine
Don't you know your own kid
Why's she hanging about you?
'Ponine, get on home
You're not needed in this
We're enough here without you
I know this house
I tell you there's nothing here for you
Just the old man and the girl
They live ordinary lives
Don't interfere
You've got some gall
Take care, young miss,
You've got a lot to say!
She's going soft
Happens to all
Go home, 'Ponine,
Go home, you're in the way
I'm gonna scream, I'm gonna warn them here.
One little scream and you'll regret it for a year.
What a palaver
What an absolute treat
To watch a cat and it's father
Pick a bone in the street
Not a sound out of you!
Well I told you I'd do it, told you I'd do it...
[She screams.]
You wait my girl, you'll rue this night
I'll make you scream, you'll scream all right
Leave her to me, don't wait around
Make for the sewers, go underground!
[The gang scatters.]
It was your cry sent them away
Once more 'Ponine saving the day
Dearest Cosette, my friend 'Ponine
Brought me to you, showed me the way!
Someone is near
Let's not be seen
Somebody's here...
[Marius leaves quickly as Valjean enters.]
My God, Cosette
I heard a cry in the dark
I heard the shout of angry voices in the street.
That was my cry you heard, Papa.
I was afraid of what they'd do.
They ran away when they heard my cry
Cosette, my child, what will become of you?
Three men I saw beyond the wall
Three men in shadow moving fast
This is a warning to us all
These are the shadows of the past
Must be Javert!
He's found my cover at last!
I've got to get Cosette away
Before they return!
We must get away from shadows
They will never let us be
Tomorrow to Calais
Then a ship across the sea!
Hurry, Cosette, prepare to leave and say no more
Tomorrow we'll away!
Hurry, Cosette, it's time to close another door
And live another day

The Lyrics to "A Little Fall Of Rain"
Don't you fret, M'sieur Marius
I don't feel any pain
A little fall of rain
Can hardly hurt me now
You're here, that's all I need to know
And you will keep me safe
And you will keep me close
And rain will make the flowers grow.

But you will live, 'Ponine - dear God above,
If I could heal your wounds with words of love.

Just hold me now, and let it be.
Shelter me, comfort me

You would live a hundred years
If I could show you how
I won't desert you now...

The rain can't hurt me now
This rain will wash away what's past
And you will keep me safe
And you will keep me close
I'll sleep in your embrace at last.

The rain that brings you here
Is Heaven-blessed!
The skies begin to clear
And I'm at rest
A breath away from where you are
I've come home from so far
So don't you fret, M'sieur Marius

I don't feel any pain
A little fall of rain
Can hardly hurt me now

That's all I need to know
And you will keep me safe
And you will keep me close

MARIUS(in counterpoint)
Hush-a-bye, dear Eponine,
You won't feel any pain
A little fall of rain
Can hardly hurt you now
I'm here

I will stay with you
Till you are sleeping

And rain...

And rain...

Will make the flowers...

Will make the flowers... grow...

(She dies. Marius kisses her, then lays her on the ground)

She is the first to fall
The first of us to fall upon this barricade

Her name was Eponine
Her life was cold and dark, yet she was unafraid.

We fight here in her name

She will not die in vain.

She will not be betrayed.
