I remember that night, I just might
Regret that night for the rest of my days
I remember those soldier boys
Tripping over themselves to win our praise
I remember that dreamlike candlelight
Like a dream that you can’t quite place
But Alexander, I’ll never forget the first
Time I saw your face
I have never been the same
Intelligent eyes in a hunger-pang frame
And when you said “Hi,” I forgot my dang name
Set my heart aflame, ev’ry part aflame
Perhaps this is too little, too late (or, as a show-tune, doesn't belong?) but I'm honey-badgering a Hamilton hit for my Most Important Song today. Confession: I have not seen Hamilton and only listened to a few minutes of a few tracks from the Original Broadway Soundtrack. What I have heard only reinforces to me that Sia's voice does amazing things to the words Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote. This is fun with history, folks!
