The Show Must Go On

Performed by Nicole Kidman and Jim Broadbent
Lyric by Brian May of Queen and Baz Lurhman

Lyric:

Satine:(spoken) I'm dying.

I was a fool to believe,
A fool to believe
It all ends today.
Yes, it all ends
Today.

(Spoken Interlude)
Zidler: Send Christian away. Only you can save him.
Satine: He'll fight for me.
Zidler: Yes, unless he believes you don't love him.
Satine: What?
Zidler: You're a great actress, Satine. Make him believe you don't love him.
Satine: No.
Zidler: Use your talent to save him. Hurt him. Hurt him to save him. There is no other way. The show must go on, Satine. We're creatures of the underworld. We can't afford to love.

Satine: Today's a day
Together: When dreaming
Satine: Ends

Zidler: (spoken) Another hero another mindless crime
Behind the curtain in the pantomime
(sung) On and on
Does anybody know what we are living for?

Whatever happens we leave it all to chance
Another heartache another failed romance
On and on
Does anybody know what we are living for?

The show must go on
The show must go on
Outside the dawn is breaking
On the stage that holds our final destiny

The show must go on
The show must go on
Satine: Inside my heart is breaking
My make-up may be flaking
But my smile still stays on

Zidler: The show must go on
The show must go on
Satine: I'll top the bill
I'll earn the kill
I have to find the will to carry
All: On with the
On with the
On with the show

Zidler: (spoken) On with the show! On with the show!

Zidler: The show must go on!
