  • We may not yet have reached our glory
    But I will gladly join the fight
    And when our children tell their story
    They'll tell the story of tonight
    They'll tell the story of tonight
    Tonight

    Have you ever felt like nobody was there?
    Have you ever felt forgotten in the middle of nowhere?
    Have you ever felt like you could disappear?
    Like you could fall, and no one would hear?

    Well, let that lonely feeling wash away
    All we see is light
    'Cause maybe there's a reason to believe you'll be okay
    For forever
    'Cause when you don't feel strong enough to stand
    You can reach, reach out your hand

    And oh
    Raise a glass to freedom
    Something they can never take away
    Oh
    No matter what they tell you
    Someone will coming running
    To take you home
    Raise a glass to all of us
    Tomorrow there'll be more of us
    Telling the story of tonight
    Out of the shadows

    The morning is breaking (they'll tell the story of tonight)
    And all is new
    All is new
    All is new
    It's only a matter of
    Time

    Even when the dark comes crashing through
    When you need a friend to carry you
    When you're broken on the ground
    You will be found
    So let the sun come streaming in
    'Cause you'll reach up and you'll rise again
    If you only look around
    You will be found

    And when our children tell their story
    You will be found
    They'll tell the story of tonight
    Whoa
    No matter what they tell you
    Tomorrow there'll be more of us
    Telling the story of tonight
    The story of tonight Writer/s: Lin-Manuel Miranda
