Confrontation  Misc. Unsigned Bands

[Fm]Valjean, at last,
[Fm/Eb]We see each other plain
[Fm/C#]`M'sieur le Mayor,'
[Fm/C]You'll wear a different chain!

[Fm]Before you say another word, Javert
[Fm/Eb]Before you chain me up like a slave again
[Fm/C#]Listen to me! There is something I must [Fm/C]do.
[Fm]This woman leaves behind a suffering child.
[Fm/Eb]There is none but me who can intercede,
[Fm/C#]In Mercy's name, three days are all I ne[Fm/C]ed.
[Ab]Then I'll return, I pledge my word.
[Eb]Then I'll return...
You must think me mad!  [F#]
I've hunted you across the years
[C#]A man like you can never change
[Cm]A man such as you.

[VALJEAN (in counterpoint] 
Believe of me what you will
There is a duty that I'm sworn to do
You know nothing of my life
All I did was steal some bread
You know nothing of the world
You would sooner see me dead
But not before I see this justice
I am warning you Javert
I'm a stronger man by far
There is power in me yet
My race is not yet run
I am warning you Javert
There is nothing I won't dare
If I have to kill you here
I'll do what must be done!

[JAVERT (in counterpoint] 
Men like me can never change
Men like you can never change
My duty's to the law - you have no rights
Come with me 24601
Now the wheel has turned around
Jean Valjean is nothing now
Dare you talk to me of crime
And the price you had to pay
Every man is born in sin
Every man must choose his way
You know nothing of Javert
I was born inside a jail
I was born with scum like you
I am from the gutter too!

[F]         [Em]       [Dm]                     
And this[C] I swear to you [Bb]tonight
T[Am]here is no place for you to hi[Gm]de
Your child will [C]live within my c[F]are
[Em]Wherever you may hide aw[Dm]ay
And I wi[C]ll raise her to the ligh[Bb]t.
I swear to you, I will b[C]e t[F]here!
