2016 stage musical adaptation of a folk opera by Anaïs Mitchell
HADESTOWN the Musical - Doubt Comes In Lyrics

ORPHEUS & FATES
Doubt comes in
And strips the paint
Doubt comes in
And turns the wine
Doubt comes in and leaves a trace
Of vinegar and turpentine
Where are you? Where are you now?
Doubt comes in
And kills the lights
Doubt comes in
And chills the air
Doubt comes in and all falls silent
It’s as though you aren’t there
Where are you? Where are you now?

EURYDICE
Orpheus
You’re shivering
Is it cold or fear?
Just keep singing
The coldest night
Of the coldest year
Comes right before the spring

ORPHEUS & FATES
Doubt comes in
With tricky fingers
Doubt comes in
With fickle tongues
Doubt comes in and my heart falters
And forgets the songs it sung
Where are you? Where are you now?

EURYDICE
Orpheus
Hold on
Hold on tight
It won’t be long
’cause the darkest hour
Of the darkest night
Comes right before the dawn

[Thanks to Gavin for lyrics]
