The Prince of Egypt the Musical - Always On Your Side Lyrics


MOSES: (spoken)
Rameses, you're Pharaoh.
You have the power to do whatever you want

RAMESES: (spoken)
Is that what you think?

(sung)
When I was a boy I couldn't wait to be a man
I thought that then I'd finally be free
There’d be no more scolding voices
I’d make my own choices
I dreamt about how happy life would be when I grew up

Then I grew up
And now I sometimes have to laugh for all I'm worth
I’m the least free man on Earth
The least free man on Earth

(spoken)
I'd be alone against everyone. Unless…

MOSES:
Unless what? What are you thinking?

RAMESES:
I'm not thinking. I'm remembering…

(sung)
There was a time when every time I tumbled down
I had my brother my accomplice and my clown
To pick me up, restore my purpose and my pride
When you were always at my side
At my side, at my side
I'm stronger with you at my side

MOSES:
You're saying every change I made I must reverse

RAMESES:
Yes

MOSES:
My wife would kill me

RAMESES:
Yes, and mine'd do even worse, but
I'll only do it if you promise me that I'd
Have you back here and on my side
On my side, on my side
Once more to have you on my side

MOSES:
On your side, on your side

RAMESES:
On my side, on my side
I know you're always

MOSES:
On your side

RAMESES:
So once again, my brother has a second brother

MOSES:
So once again, it seems, I have a second brother

RAMESES:
Now you can be the second-least free man on Earth

MOSES:
And I'll be even more the least-free man on Earth

BOTH:
Against all others you will keep me fortified

MOSES:
To set my people free
Well, if the price is me

BOTH:
From now on I will be

MOSES:
Always on your side

RAMESES:
Always on my side
