THE FATHER How could you know what you have asked of me / Could risk it all and alter everything / So much to lose if I let you go / Nothing to gain if I make you stay / THE YOUNGER SON (Spoken) You can’t make me stay / THE FATHER For all I know, and all I’ve taught to you / Could I have guessed it’s me who’s torn in two? / I recognize the eyes of a boy / But who is this man standing before me? / You would go and I would wave goodbye / To priceless years and the best life I have known / Once alone, what questions would arise / How dare you ask? And why ask now? / And how could I not say yes? / So what’s the use of my great plans for you / If, in your eyes, you don’t see greatness too? / I could be proud / I could be grieved / But I’ll let you go / Extravagantly
