Soft Power the Musical - Democracy (Reprise) Lyrics


XUE XING: (spoken)
David, we have a saying:
"Dà nàn bù sǐ, bì yǒu hòu fú"
"If somehow you survive when you should have died, good fortune will follow."
I hope this proves true for you all

I was taught

ENSEMBLE:
In the land of the free

I was taught

Where they screamed at me, "Life"
"Life!"
"Liberty!"
"Liberty!"

How can I turn my back

On democracy?

And I forget what I really should know
I forget that it's such a big, big show

Still I dream
Still I dream
Still I dream
Still I dream

That our people can be

They can be wise enough

Wise enough

Just enough

Just enough
Worthy of trust enough, kind enough, smart enough

With a big heart enough

Good and grown-up enough

To lift us up

Lift us up!
Lift us up!
Lift us up!
Lift us up!
Lift us up!
Lift us up!
Lift us up!

And I dream

Welcome to America, Welcome to America

This is, this is
America

Look, our country's a disaster

This is America

In so many ways
But we have the power

We have
We have
We have

We have the power
We have the power
We have

DHH:
This is America
This is America
This is America

ENSEMBLE:
I believe, I believe
I believe, I believe
I believe, I believe
I believe, I believe
I believe, I believe
I believe, I believe
I believe, I believe
I believe, I believe

DHH: (spoken)
"Dà nàn bù sǐ, bì yǒu hòu fú"
"Good fortune will follow, if we somehow survive."

ENSEMBLE:
In America
