[VALJEAN]
One day more!
Another day, another destiny.
This never-ending road to Calvary;
These men who seem to know my crime
Will surely come a second time.
One day more!

[MARIUS]
I did not live until today.
How can I live when we are parted?

[VALJEAN]
One day more.

[MARIUS & COSETTE]
Tomorrow you'll be worlds away
And yet with you, my world has started!

[EPONINE]
One more day all on my own.

[MARIUS & COSETTE]
Will we ever meet again?

[EPONINE]
One more day with him not caring.

[MARIUS & COSETTE]
I was born to be with you.

[EPONINE]
What a life I might have known.

[MARIUS & COSETTE]
And I swear I will be true!

[EPONINE]
But he never saw me there!

[ENJOLRAS]
One more day before the storm!

[MARIUS]
Do I follow where she goes?

[ENJOLRAS]
At the barricades of freedom.

[MARIUS]
Shall I join my brothers there?

[ENJOLRAS]
When our ranks begin to form

[MARIUS]
Do I stay; and do I dare?

[ENJOLRAS]
Will you take your place with me?

[ALL]
The time is now, the day is here

[VALJEAN]
One day more!

[JAVERT]
One day more to revolution,
We will nip it in the bud!
We'll be ready for these schoolboys,
They will wet themselves with blood!

[VALJEAN]
One day more!

[M. & MME. THENARDIER]
Watch 'em run amuck,
Catch 'em as they fall,
Never know your luck
When there's a free for all,
Here's a little 'dip'
There a little 'touch'
Most of them are goners
So they won't miss much!

[Students (2 Groups)]
[1:] One day to a new beginning

[2:] Raise the flag of freedom high!

[1:] Every man will be a king

[2:] Every man will be a king

[1:] There's a new world for the winning

[2:] There's a new world to be won

[ALL]
Do you hear the people sing?

[MARIUS]
My place is here, I fight with you!

[VALJEAN]
One day more!

[MARIUS & COSETTE]
I did not live until today.

[EPONINE]
One more day all on my own!

[MARIUS & COSETTE]
How can I live when we are parted?

[JAVERT (overlapping)]
We will join these people's heroes
We will follow where they go
We will learn their little secrets,
We will know the things they know.

[VALJEAN]
One day more!

[MARIUS & COSETTE]
Tomorrow you'll be worlds away

[EPONINE]
What a life I might have known!

[MARIUS & COSETTE]
And yet with you my world has started

[JAVERT (overlapping)]
One more day to revolution
We will nip it in the bud
We'll be ready for these schoolboys

[THENARDIERS (overlapping)]
Watch 'em run amok
Catch 'em as they fall
Never know your luck
When there's a free-for-all!

[VALJEAN]
Tomorrow we'll be far away,
Tomorrow is the judgement day

[ALL]
Tomorrow we'll discover
What our God in Heaven has in store!
One more dawn
One more day
One day more!
