The Prince of Egypt the Musical - For the Rest of My Life Lyrics


MOSES:
For the rest of my life
I will have to live with this
For the rest of my life
I'll have to face the part I played

These faces filled with grief and with despair
Every morning when I wake up they'll be there
Seared into my memory
With a cruel burning knife
For the rest of my life

Oh, there's a weight on my soul
Like a pyramid of stone
There's a weight on my soul
A ransom never to be paid

The crimes I do, I do them in your name
I feel just as guilty, all the same
Like a brutal soldier
Who does anything he's told
There's a weight on my soul
For the rest of my life

When you know you're in the right
It's so easy to be wrong
You have to win the fight
So you close your mind and heart up tight
And go along
Tell yourself you're staying strong

You ramp up your ferocity
Excuse any atrocity
But once you've won
You have to live with what you've done

And for the rest of my life
I will have to live with this
For the rest of my life
These questions haunting me like ghosts
Does a noble end mean any means will do?
Is your power the only reason to follow You?
And one final question I see no answer to
For the rest of my life
How will I get through?
Unlike so many of our victims
I have the rest of my life
To get through
