"Road To Hell (Reprise)"

[HERMES]
A'ight
It’s an old song
It's an old tale from way back when
It's an old song
(spoken)
And that is how it ends
(sung)
That’s how it goes

Don't ask why, brother, don't ask how
He could have come so close
The song was written long ago
(spoken)
And that is how it goes

(sung)
It's a sad song
It's a sad tale
(spoken)
It's a tragedy
(sung)
It's a sad song
(spoken)
But we sing it anyway

'Cause here’s the thing
To know how it ends
And still begin to sing it again
As if it might turn out this time
I learned that from a friend of mine

See, Orpheus was a poor boy

[EURYDICE, spoken]
Anybody got a match?

[HERMES, spoken]
But he had a gift to give

[EURYDICE, spoken]
Gimme that

[HERMES]
(spoken)
He could make you see how the world could be
(sung)
In spite of the way that it is
(spoken)
Can you see it?
Can you hear it?
(sung)
Can you feel it like a train?
(spoken)
Is it coming?
Is it coming this way?

(sung)
On a sunny day, there was a railroad car
And a lady steppin’ off a train
Everybody looked and everybody saw
That spring had come again

With a love song

[PERSEPHONE]
With a love song

[COMPANY]
With a love song

[HERMES]
With a tale of a love from long ago

[HERMES]
It's a sad song

[COMPANY]
It’s a sad song

[PERSEPHONE]
It's a sad song

[HERMES]
But we keep singin' even so
It's an old song

[EURYDICE]
It’s an old song

[ORPHEUS]
It's an old song

[COMPANY]
It's an old song

[HERMES]
It's an old tale from way back when
And we're gonna sing it again and again
We're gonna sing, we're gonna sing

[ALL]
It's a love song
It's a tale of a love from long again
It's a sad song
We keep singing even so
It's an old song
It's an old tale from way back when
And we're gonna sing it again and again

[HERMES]
We're gonna sing it again
