This ballad from the musical Les Miserables finds the ragged, tragic, Éponine lamenting her unrequited love for student revolutionary Marius. Isle of Man native Samantha Barks sung the song in the movie version. Though it was Barks' cinematic debut, she was no stranger to musicals. Having finished third on the BBC talent show themed I'd Do Anything, she was chosen to play the lead role of Sally Bowles in the UK tour of Cabaret. Barks went on to play Éponine in Les Miserables in the West End from June 21 2010 to June 18 2011, for a time opposite Nick Jonas. She performed this song at the Royal Variety Performance at the London Palladium on December 9, 2010 and also at the Classical Brits 2011 at The Royal Albert Hall on May 12, 2011. In January 2013 her version of the song entered the Billboard Hot 100, the ballad's first appearance on the chart.
