I’d Give My Life For You (Korean Version)

Bui doi by Alan Boublil & Claude Schonberg

 

CHOIR]
They’re called Bui-Doi
The Dust of life
Conceived in hell
And born is strife
They are the the living reminders
Of all the good we failed to do
We can’t forget
Must not forget
That they are all
Our children too

[JOHN]
Like all survivors, I once thought
When I’m home I won’t give a damn
But now I know I’m caught
I’ll never leave Vietnam

War isn’t over when it ends
Some pictures never leave your mind
They are the faces of the children
The ones we left behind

They’re called Bui-Doi
The dust of life
Conceived in hell
And born in strife
They are the living reminders
Of all the good we failed to do
We can’t forget
Must not forget
That they are all
Our children too

These kids hit walls on every side
They don’t belong in any place
Their secrets they can’t hide
Its printed on each face

I never thought one day I’d plead
For half-breeds from a land that’s torn
But then I saw a camp for children
Whose crime was being born

They’re called Bui-Doi
The dust of life
Conceived in hell
And born in strife
We owe them fathers, and a family –
A loving home they never knew
Because we know
Deep in our hearts
That they are all
Our children too

These are souls in need
They need us to give
Someone has to pay
For their chance to live
Help me try

[JOHN] and [CHORUS]
They’re called Bui-Doi
The dust of life
Conceived in hell
And born in strife
They are the living reminders
Of all the good we failed to do
That’s why we know
Deep in our hearts
That they are all
Our children too

I’d Give My Life For You by Alan Boublil & Claude Michel Schonberg

This is one of my favorites from this show…. I am so glad it is coming back to Broadway… Ironically, I knew it would one day too 🙂
You asking as little as you can
Little snip of a little man
I know i’d give my life for you
You didn’t ask me to be born
You why should you learn of war or pain?
To make sure you’re not hurt again
I swear I’d give my life for you
I’ve tasted love beyond all fear
And you should know it’s love
that brought you here
And in one perfect night
when the stars burned like new,
I knew what I must do
I’ll give you a million things I’ll never own
I’ll give you a world to conquer when you’re grown
You can choose whatever heaven grants
As long as you can have your chance
I swear I’ll give my life for you
Sometimes I wake up
reaching for him
I feel his shadow brush my head
But there’s just moonlight on my bed
Was he a ghost was he a lie?
That made my body laugh and cry?
Then by my side the proof i see
his little one, gods of the sun,
bring him to me!
You will be who you want to be
You, can choose whatever heaven grants
As long as you can have your chance
I swear i’ll give my life for you
No one can stop what i must do

The Last Night of the World Miss Saigon

I had to post this Broadway song too. Miss Saigon is my favorite show and this is one of the best from the show. Hope you like it.

Chris
In a place that won’t let us feel
In a life where nothing seems real
I have found youI have found you

Kim

In a world that’s moving too fast
In a world where nothing can last
I will hold you
I will hold you

Chris
Our lives will change, when tomorrow comes

Kim
Tonight our hearts drown the distant drums

Chris
And we have music, all rightTearing the night

Both
A song
Played on a solo saxophone
A crazy sound
A lonely sound
A cry that tells usLove goes on and onPlayed on a solo saxophone
It’s telling me
To hold you tight
And danceLike it’s the last night
Of the world

Chris
On the other side of the earthThere’s a place where life still has worth
I will take you
Kim
I’ll go with you

ChrisYou won’t believe all the tings you’ll see
I know ’cause you’ll see them all with me

Both
If we’re together, that’s whenWe’ll hear it again
A song
A crazy sound
A lonely sound
A cry that tells usLove goes on and onPlayed on a solo saxophone
It’s telling me
To hold you tight
And danceLike it’s the last night
Of the world

Kim
DreamsWere all I ever knew

Chris
DreamsYou won’t need when I’m through

Both
Anywhere we may be
I will sing with youA song –
(They dance together on the balcony)

Both
Played on a solo saxophone
So stay with meAnd hold me tight
And dance Like it’s the last night of the world
