The world is Cruel
The world is wicked
It's I alone whom you can trust in this whole city
I am your only friend
I who keep you, teach you, feed you, dress you
I who look upon you without fear
How can I protect you, boy, unless you
Always stay in here
Away in here?

You are deformed
I am deformed
And you are ugly
And I am ugly
And these are crimes
For which the world
Shows little pity
You do not comprehended
You are my one defender
Out there they'll revile you as a monster
I am a monster...
Out there they will hate and scorn and jeer
Only a monstr...
Why invite their calumny and consternation?
Stay in here
Be faithful to me
I'm faithful
Grateful to me
I'm grateful
Do as I say, obey
And stay in here

Safe behind these windows and these parapets of stone
Gazing at the people down below me
All my life I watch them as I hide up here alone
Hungry for the histories they show me
All my life I memorize their faces
Knowing them as they will never know me
All my life I wonder how it feels to pass a day
Not above them
But part of them

And out there
Living in the sun
Give me one day out there
All I ask is one
To hold forever
Out there
Where they all live unaware
What I'd give
What I'd dare
Just to live one day out there

Out there among the millers
and the weavers and their wives
Through the roofs and gables I can see them
Ev'ry day they shout and go about their lives
Heedless of the gift it is to be them
If I was in their skin
I'd terasure ev'ry instant

Out there
Stroling by the Seine
Taste a morning
Out there
Like ordinary man
Who freely walk about there
Just one day and then
I swear
I'll be content
With my share
Won't resent
Won't despair
Old and bent
I won't care
I'll have spent
One day
Out there
