"A Heart Full of Love" is a song from Les Misérables.

Role Edit

This song takes place at Rue Plumet, directly after Cosette pleas with Jean Valjean to trust her with his harrowing past. After the argument, she goes outside to find Marius at the gates, having been led there by Éponine. The two pronounce their love to each other while Éponine looks on. Heartbroken, she realizes that her chances with Marius were never really a possibility.

LyricsEdit

[Marius goes into the garden, leaving Eponine outside.]

Marius:
A heart full of love.
A heart full of song.
I'm doing everything all wrong.
Oh, God, for shame,
I do not even know your name,
Dear Mad'moiselle.

Won't you say?
Will you tell?

Cosette:
A heart full of love.
No fear, no regret.

Marius:
My name is Marius Pontmercy.

Cosette:
And mine's Cosette.

Marius:
Cosette, I don't know what to say.

Cosette:
Then make no sound.

Marius:
I am lost.

Cosette:
I am found!

Marius:
A heart full of light.

Cosette:
A night bright as day.

Marius:
And you must never go away,
Cosette, Cosette.

Cosette:
This is a chain we'll never break.

Marius:
Do I dream?

Cosette:
I'm awake!

Marius:
A heart full of love.

Éponine: (in counterpoint)
He was never mine to lose.

Cosette:
A heart full of you.

Éponine: (in counterpoint)
Why regret what could not be?

Marius:
A single look and then I knew.

Éponine: (in counterpoint)
These are words he'll never say.

Cosette:
I knew it, too.

Éponine: (in counterpoint)
Not to me...

Marius:
From today...

Éponine: (in counterpoint)
Not to me...

Cosette:
Everyday.

Éponine: (in counterpoint)
Not for me...

Cosette and Marius:
For it isn't a dream.

Éponine: (in counterpoint)
His heart full of love...

Cosette and Marius:
Not a dream.

Éponine: (in counterpoint)
He will never...

Cosette and Marius:
After all!

Éponine: (in counterpoint)
Feel this way...
