Good evening, ma'am
Don't turn the bed yet
I'm not the maid
What do you want then?

They must have written the room number wrong
I am looking for someone named Christopher Scott
317, oh, I'm sorry, unless
Well, you must be, of course, you're John's wife, are you not?

Oh God, I see, it had to happen
You must be Kim, Chris went to find you
Please come inside, no one will hurt you
I'm Chris's wife, my name is Ellen

In a way, I am glad I am meeting you first
Understand, you were only a name till tonight
I don't know how I'd feel if our roles were reversed
Please won't you sit down

Tell me you are lying
We've been married a year, I am sorry, it's true
He said he'd come to get me
He says he tried to reach you, but what could he do?

Please tell me you're not married
You don't know, you can't know what I've done to be here
You don't know how he needed a new start

I feel walls in my heart closing in
I can't breathe, I can't win
As for the child
You say it's Chris's

Oh yes, madame, my son is Chris's
I had a dream for my son to belong
And not live his life in the streets like a rat

We aren't rich, but we'll shoulder our load
Chris and I are totally together on that
Then you must take Tam with you
Take a child from his mother, impossible Kim

You will take Tam with you
Then he'll get what I wanted for him
But Kim, your child needs you
Chris is married to me, we want kids of our own

Tam's chance lies with you now, not with me
No, can't you see
It won't work, it can't be

If you're saying that
Because you've made him change his mind
Chris must go away
And leave me and his son behind

If you're saying
That because my husband has another wife
My child has no future, like the dust of life
He must come tonight to my place
Tell me so to my face

I don't want this, I didn't come here
To meet a girl who loves my husband
I came here to help, but what do I do?
Now, after this, what do I?
