Hamilton the Musical – Dear Theodosia Lyrics

 

“Dear Theodosia” is a song from the Broadway musical Hamilton performed by Leslie Odom Jr. (Burr) and Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton).

 

[Burr]

Dear Theodosia what to say to you

You have my eyes

You have your mother’s name

When you came into the world you cried and it broke my heart

 

I’m dedicating everyday to you

Domestic life was never quite my style

When you smile, you knock me out I fall apart and I thought I was so smart

 

You will come of age with our young nation

We’ll bleed and fight for you

We’ll make it right for you

If we lay a strong enough foundation

We’ll pass it on to you

We’ll give the world to you and you’ll blow us all away

Someday x2

Yeah you’ll blow us all away

Someday x2

 

[Hamilton]

Oh, Phillip when you smile I am undone, my son

Look at my son

Pride is not the word I’m looking for

There is so much more inside me now

 

Oh, Phillip you outshine the morning sun, my son

When you smile, I fall apart and I thought I was so smart

 

My father wasn’t around

 

[Burr]

My father wasn’t around

 

[Hamilton]

I swear that

 

[Both]

I’ll be around for you

 

[Hamilton]

I’ll do whatever it takes

 

[Burr]

I’ll make a million mistakes

 

[Both]

I’ll make the world safe and sound for you

 

You’ll come of age with our young nation

We’ll bleed and fight for you

We’ll make it right for you

If we lay a strong enough foundation

We’ll pass it on to you

We’ll give the world to you and you’ll blow us all away

Someday x2

Yeah, you’ll blow us all away

Someday, someday
