Valjean, at last,
We see each other plain
`M'sieur le Mayor,'
       Bb/F               Fm
You'll wear a different chain!

Before you say another word, Javert
Before you chain me up like a slave again
Fm                                     Bb/F
Listen to me! There is something I must do.
This woman leaves behind a suffering child.
There is none but me who can intercede,
Fm                                    Bb/F
In Mercy's name, three days are all I need.

Then I'll return, I pledge my word.
Eb                 [JAVERT]
Then I'll return... You must think me mad!
I've hunted you across the years
A man like you can never change
Db            Cm
A man such as you.

[VALJEAN and JAVERT (in counterpoint)]
Believe of me what you will (Men like me can never change)
There is a duty that I'm sworn to do (Men like you can never change)
You know nothing of my life (No,)
All I did was steal some bread (24601)
You know nothing of the world (My duty's to the law - you have no rights)
You would sooner see me dead (Come with me 24601)
But not before I see this justice (Now the wheel has turned around)
done (Jean Valjean is nothing now)

I am warning you Javert (Dare you talk to me of crime)
I'm a stronger man by far (And the price you had to pay)
There is power in me yet (Every man is born in sin)
My race is not yet run (Every man must choose his way)
I am warning you Javert (You know nothing of Javert)
There is nothing I won't dare (I was born inside a jail)
If I have to kill you here (I was born with scum like you)
I'll do what must be done! (I am from the gutter too!)

Fm  Dbsus4

F F/E  

Dm7         F/C            Bb
And this I swear to you tonight
                   [ch]Bb/A[/ch]             Gm7  
There is no place for you to hide
                 C              F
Your child will live within my care
              F/E        Dm7
Wherever you may hide away
           F/C               Bbmaj7
And I will raise her to the light.
              C             F
I swear to you, I will be there!
