1. Unlocked Who I Am

PRINCE CHARMING
How lucky am I? She’s the girl of my dreams
Much as I love her, even more she loves me.

One in a million, so pretty and sweet
Smart tough and funny, knocked me off of my feet.

Her kiss is so warm, it reached to my soul,
I never knew not, but now I am whole

The girl has unlocked who I am
And I will never be free
The girl has unlocked who I am.
Her kiss has captured me.

MEN AT ARMS 1 & 2
Now that he has his bride,
Our adventures will be set aside

MEN AT ARMS 3 & 4
That won’t necessarily be,
He’ll have to rescue his queen.

PRINCE CHARMING
The girl has unlocked who I am
And I will never be free
The girl has unlocked who I am.
Her kiss has captured me

Now I am king, after all of this time
But I wasn’t ready, until she was mine

The light of my world, she stirred me awake
No more bored waiting, my future I’ll take

I’m walking on air, I can stand tall,
I feel I can make any obstacle fall

The girl has unlocked who I am
And I will never be free
The girl has unlocked who I am
Her kiss, has captured me.

PRINCE CHARMING & SNOW WHITE
We beat her (my/her) stepmother’s curse
There isn’t anything worse
Together our love will fire
The happiness we desire

SNOW WHITE
The man has unlocked who I am
And I can finally breathe
The man has unlocked who I am
His kiss, is life to me.

I wish I were well, to share in his joy
Look at him now, he’s just like a boy

But I am in chains, still held by the dark
My dreams are a plague, jagged and stark

If I don’t rest soon the fever will spread,
Can’t be the queen if I take to my bed

The man has unlocked who I am
And I can finally breathe
The man has unlocked who I am
His kiss is life to me.

MEN AT ARMS 3 & 4
The Queen’s not feeling her best,
I’ll bet we’re in for a quest.

MEN AT ARMS 1 & 2
Oh well, you might be right,
We must be ready to fight!

SNOW WHITE
The man has unlocked who I am
And I can finally breathe
The man has unlocked who I am
His kiss is life to me.

For too many months I lay there alone
Just me and my thoughts, turned cold as a stone

Sleep is too much like the dark of the grave
I close my eyes, and the madness does rage

No one can help, doctors have come,
But all they can do is make my mind numb.

SNOW WHITE PRINCE CHARMING
Your love has unlocked who I am
And I can finally breathe / And I can never be free
The man has unlocked who I am
Your kiss, is life to me. / Your kiss, has captured me.

We beat her (my) stepmother’s curse
There isn’t anything worse
Together our love will fire
The happiness we desire

Your love has unlocked who I am
And I can finally breathe / And I can never be free
Your love has unlocked who I am
Your kiss, is life to me. / Your kiss, has captured me.

3. The Courage of a Saint

FATHER HEINRICH
My calling is to spread the Word
Of God’s love and majesty.
I ask God to intercede
To forgive man’s transgressions.

For someone to walk in the shoes
Of the righteous redeemer
Confront evil in God’s own name
That courage only lies in few.

(Refrain)
To be touched by God’s own hand
Granted the strength to do his will
To see clearly with his vision
And have the courage of a saint.

I have faith that Spirit can save you.
My doubt is in my own strength.
How dare I take on such a risk
When it’s your very soul at stake?

The few who have shown such strength
Are exulted and hailed as saints
In them God’s will is manifest
They have shown us how it can be done

(Refrain)
To be touched by God’s own hand
Granted the strength to do his will
To see clearly with his vision
And have the courage of a saint.

But knowing something’s possible
Even to know how it would feel
To summon up such resolve
These are two very different things.

I am sorry for failing you
Would that I could cure your ills
Sadly, I am not that man
I don’t have the courage of a saint.

(Refrain)
To be touched by God’s own hand
Granted the strength to do his will
To see clearly with his vision
And have the courage of a saint.

Only God’s power can right all wrongs
His forgiveness knows no bounds
Christ’s blood flowed to wash away
All mankind’s sins in the world

Take his flesh and drink his blood
That you may enter His kingdom
And He may grant you the strength, hope
and courage that you need.

(Refrain)
To be touched by God’s own hand
Granted the strength to do his will
To see clearly with his vision
And have the courage of a saint.
Amen.

4. Why Should We Worry?

MASTER SAI
When we own a mine overflowing with riches...

LIU, HONG AND MING
Why should we worry?

MASTER SAI
When we live in this forest just brimming with food...

LIU, HONG AND MING
Why should we worry?

MASTER SAI
When we are the favorites of newlywed royals...

LIU, HONG AND MING
Why should we worry?

MASTER SAI
When we’ve got everything that we ever wanted...

LIU, HONG AND MING
Why should we worry?

MASTER PO
When there’s chores that sit waitin’ cause nobody wants ‘em...

MASTER PO AND MASTER WING
That’s when we worry.

MASTER PO
When the weather turns foul and the roof it needs fixin’...

MASTER PO AND MASTER WING
That’s when we worry.

MASTER PO
When company’s comin’ and our clothes all need mendin’...

MASTER PO AND MASTER WING
That’s when we worry.

MASTER PO
When robbers come callin’ and we’re all off visitin’...

MASTER PO AND MASTER WING
That’s when we worry.

MASTER SAI
We all agree there is plenty to do here,
But we can do it without the fret.

MASTER PO
I am not saying we cannot go visit her.
Only right now I just want to check.

MASTER SAI
We should make a list of what still needs doing
That we have let get behind us.

MASTER PO
We will be gone for four days, not more
Not long enough to warrant the fuss.

MASTER SAI
We five can get done these chores in a few days
Without the worry the two of you bring.

MASTER PO
Just one day there, and one day to come back again
We’ll be right back, you won’t notice a thing.

5. Mama, Now I am Queen

BELLAVERNA
You aren’t smart enough to make it in the world.
You can’t focus long enough to get anything done.
How many times do I have to repeat myself?
You’re worthless.

SNOW WHITE
Why did you always put me down?
Why didn’t you want me do well?
Even though you made me believe I didn’t deserve better
My dreams did come true
Mama, now I am Queen.

BELLAVERNA
No, that’s not good enough.
Do you have a brain in your head?
You are such a disappointment.
I am so glad you’re not really my daughter.

SNOW WHITE
Did you feel you deserved more from life?
Did papa’s death leave you bitter and alone?
Did I remind you of what you could no longer be?
Well I became who I am.
Mama, now I am Queen.

BELLAVERNA
Always playing and pretending,
You will never amount to anything.
Why do I bother trying to teach you?
When are you going to grow up?

SNOW WHITE
I always looked up to you.
I wanted to grow up to be like you
Regal, powerful, smart and in command.
But you were only ruthless.
Mama, now I am Queen.

Bridge:
SNOW WHITE
You left me thinking I could never succeed
I gave up and stopped trying to better myself
So where do I find the strength
The vision, the faith in myself
Now that I am Queen?

BELLAVERNA
Stop shrinking away, show some backbone.
All you have going for you is a pretty face
And that won’t last forever
Believe me, I know.

SNOW WHITE
For years all I had was dreams
Now the time for dreaming is over
I have to believe I can do whatever I need to
To meet this impossible future.
Mama, now I am Queen.

6. The Knowledge of Heaven

BROTHER DANIEL
Remembering will not only show you
How to get yourself free from your nightmares
It will let you see,
It will let you see
All the knowledge of heaven.
The knowledge of heaven.

Mystics through time have sold their own souls
For no more than a glimpse at the Other Side
The treasures that lie there,
Treasures that lie there
All the knowledge of heaven.
The knowledge of heaven.

When God created the world in six days
He did not make a place for the dead to rest
For Earth was to be,
Earth was to be
A deathless Paradise.
A deathless Paradise

When man fell from God’s Grace to pain and death
God took pity on us and welcomed our souls
Back to His breast,
Back to His breast
All the awesome mercy of heaven
The awesome mercy of heaven.

(Refrain)
All the majesty and power,
The genius of Creation.
All the knowledge of everything that was or will be.
Hosanna in the highest
Hosanna in the highest.

The purposeful object of all the Black Arts
Souls given to Satan were only to buy
A look at the page
A look at the page
Of the holy book of heaven
The holy book of heaven

But you my child went there and stayed,
What miraculous things you must have heard
What wonderful secrets,
What wonderful secrets,
You must have seen and learned there.
You must have seen and learned there

Only you have returned to life and the light
Moreover ‘twas love that brought you back here
You can now make good
You can now make good
Of your stepmother’s dark pact
Your stepmother’s dark pact.

I know this is frightening and I am sorry
I ask you to trust my expertise.
With nothing to go on
Nothing to go on
There is no the other way
This is the only way

(Refrain)
All the majesty and power,
The genius of Creation.
All the knowledge of everything that was or will be.
Hosanna in the highest
Hosanna in the highest.

7. When I Look at You

HANS
When I look at you I see the spark in your eye
that captured my heart when I was still young.

BIRGETTE
Oh dear Hans, why do you say so?

HANS
When I look at you I see the laugh on your lips
that warmed my heart through the coldest night.

BIRGETTE
Silly man, you’re making me blush.

HANS (refrain)
I have found a way to show you
What I’ve always seen
A heart so pure and giving
In spite of all that’s been.

BIRGETTE
A mirror? You know how I hate them.

HANS
At last you will see the beauty within!

BIRGETTE
Oh my lord! It changes so much!

HANS
When I look at you I see hope for my years
Filled with children, a home full of love.

BIRGETTE
Marvelous. Unbelievable.

HANS
When I look at you
I want you to see
That same strong soul
Been so good to me

BIRGETTE
Almost like, I’ve never been hurt.

HANS (refrain)
I have found a way to show you
What I’ve always seen
A heart so pure and giving
In spite of all that’s been.

BIRGETTE
It’s magic. I can’t look away.

HANS
At last you can see the beauty within!

BIRGETTE
Such a prize, how much is it worth?

HANS
When I was at work, I threw it away
Till I saw my scar
Gone from my face.

BIRGETTE
So tell me, where did it come from?

HANS
The old ruined castle
Clearing out trash
Furniture, clothing,
Burned it all to ash.

BIRGETTE
The castle? So this was the Queen’s?

HANS (refrain)
I have found a way to show you
What I’ve always seen
A heart so pure and giving
In spite of all that’s been.

BIRGETTE
Is it safe? Wasn’t she evil?

HANS
At last you can see the beauty within!

BIRGETTE
Maybe you’re right. I like what I see.

8. Old King Krosus

MASTER PO
Gath’r ‘round and hear my tale of yore,
Of kings and wars and heroes galore.
How good-hearted folks came to impede,
A long family line of crimes and misdeeds.

Old King Krosus was a wicked soul,
Borne of mad men who lust control.
Over Malruvia he gave his orders,
Lying beyond Lusinia’s borders.

He hungered for land, for power ‘n money,
Not sated with his wine and honey.
He spent his days practicing war.
They say he loved black magic more.

With eyes as dead as a cold winter’s night
And a slash of a mouth, he was quite a fright.
But his voice they say was even worse,
With just a whisper he could kill a horse.

There finally came a day of conflict
When years of threats and feigns and hints
Erupted in war and invasion bold
His army crossed Lusinia’s hold.

Good King Ludwig, strong and true
Rallied his forces and gathered a crew
They met old King Krosus head on
And battled fearlessly all day long.

Ludwig knew the Malruvian’s bent
He could not let his men relent.
He himself had a young princess
And a new wife at home to protect.

So he called for help from the people
The commoners and townspeople
Who came by throng to aide their king
And fought bravely to ensure winning.

With pitchforks, hammers, whips and stones
They joined their knights in battle throes
And drove the enemy back again
All the way to their own land.

Up in the mountains between the lands
The battle peaked with one last stand
The armies spent, the people tired
The fight came down to the leading sires.

Good King Ludwig and Evil Krosus
Met man to man above the ruckus
On a stone arch they waged their fight
And each threw in with all his might.

That stone arch had stood forever
Carved by water, wind and weather
And it might still be there today
Except for what happened in that fray.

It formed a bridge between the lands
That spanned the years, through many hands
That bridge between those two countries
Came down that day with finality.

Maybe t’was fate, or maybe magic
Either way the end was tragic
That bridge collapsed before they crossed
The battle ended with both kings lost.

MASTER WING
Lusinia fair, she took the day
She paid the price, but’s here today
He’s sorely missed, no one forgets
King Ludwig was as good as it gets.

And what became of Malruvia?
Her darkened shores and lonely halls
Are ruled today by Krosus’ son
Whom utterly no one has heard from.

9. When I Look in Here

BIRGETTE
When I look in here I see the bounce in my step
That carried me to you when I was still young

HANS
I had hoped, this would bring you joy.

BIRGETTE
When I look in here I see the hope in my heart
that let me leave home and come marry you

HANS
My darling, we are still as one.

BIRGETTE (refrain)
I’ve found a way of seeing, what my life could have been
A life I didn’t get to, a place where I fit in.

HANS
Such sadness, this mirror is to blame.

BIRGETTE
And now I cannot let this image go!

HANS
My Birgette, oh what have I done?

BIRGETTE
When I look in here all my pains melt away
For just a moment I am free from harm.

HANS
All it does, is make you unhappy

BIRGETTE
I need not be lame I can dance again
Why would I not want to stay there always?

HANS
Illusion, that’s all it is.

BIRGETTE (refrain)
I’ve found a way of seeing, what my life could have been
A life I didn’t get to, a place where I fit in.

HANS
Turn away, come away my love

BIRGETTE
And now I cannot let this image go!

HANS
It’s poison, you must see this.

BIRGETTE
I used to think that my life will get better
Get used to my scars my leg that won’t bend

HANS
Not to me, these things don’t matter

BIRGETTE
But now I can see how wrong I have been
Nothing gets better I am who I am

HANS
Oh Sweetheart, the love of my life

BIRGETTE (refrain)
I’ve found a way of seeing, what my life could have been
A life I didn’t get to, a place where I fit in.

HANS
I can’t stand seeing you like this.

BIRGETTE
And now I cannot let this image go!

HANS
I’ll take it, and remove this strife.

10. Why She Must Die

MIRROR
An innocent victim you say.
Clearly you too are in her sway.
Misfortune follows on the path
of those who invite evil’s wrath.

Her charms are great, don’t be a fool;
The mistress of fate has no soul.
Drove her stepmother mad it’s true.
I see she’ll do the same to you.

(Refrain)
Now I will tell you
Now I will tell you
Now I will tell you
why she must die.

You wonder how she survived
The Sleeping Death, to be a bride
She says ‘twas love that brought her through
I see through that, and you can too.

The Dark returned her on that day
For greater things, for our dismay.
Her child you see has fate’s own hand
Her son will color red the land.

(Refrain)
Now I will tell you
Now I will tell you
Now I will tell you
why she must die.

Malruvia lies to the East
A fair land rich with grain and beast.
All is peaceful and all is green,
But not in the future I have seen.

King Murdock’s new son, Gustav by name
Will die before he claims his fame
At the hand of Snow White’s unborn
In a war that will leave both lands torn.

(Refrain)
Now I will tell you
Now I will tell you
Now I will tell you
why she must die.

Now Peldor and Lusinia
Have joined forces to be enough
To overcome Gustav in time
Conquer his land, and end his line.

It’s too late to halt the joining
But there’s still time to stop warring
If Snow White dies before the birth
Gustav will live long in mirth.

You want to be able to see
The future and all that will be
But now you see it’s not easy
To live your life once you have seen.

I will help you cope with the guilt
The weight of knowing that which will.
Taking your place in history
You can stop catastrophe.

(Refrain)
Now I will tell you
Now I will tell you
Now I will tell you
why she must die.

A man of God, you have been called
To discern the truth when others fall
It is not a mere accident
That you and I have at last met.

It is your life’s destiny
To kill this girl and then join me
Together we can know the world
And heaven’s secrets will unfurl.

Oh yes, it’s true, I have the keys
To all of the knowledge that you seek
There is no limit to what you could learn
Once you’ve given history a turn

You see, I am blocked from this view
By this war that time will skew
Once the path is set straight again
All avenues open up to heaven.

(Refrain)
Now I have told you
Now I have told you
Now I have told you
That she must die.

11. Summer Ended Early

SNOW WHITE
Once I thought I had lost it all
My home, my family, my life
But love brought it all back to me
Love, oh love has carried me through.

I’ve been given a brand new life
I married the man of my dreams
I am the queen of two countries
Love, oh love has brought me a son

But summer... ended early.

(Refrain)
My life is going well for me
Yet I feel the hand of destiny
How happy should I let myself get
When I see pieces not settled yet.

Some have not loved me at all
I survived them and will again
My father would be proud of me
Love, oh love in spite of the dark

Sweet love has been my salvation
I found a way into the light
This was the summer of my new life
Love, oh love saved me from the grave

But summer... ended early.

(Refrain)
My life is going well for me
Yet I feel the hand of destiny
How happy should I let myself get
When I see pieces not settled yet.

(Bridge)
I should have hope for the future
Things always work out for the best
The sun will shine again tomorrow
Even if summer ended early.

(Refrain)
My life is going well for me
Yet I feel the hand of destiny
How happy should I let myself get
When I see pieces not settled yet.
They’re not settled yet.
We’re not settled yet.
I’m not settled yet.

12. His Love Is All That I Need

SNOW WHITE
Oh no, not again, I’ve felt this before
When stepmother stuck, and I breathed no more

My prince rescued me, but now I’m alone
No one will come, I’m cold as a stone.

If I don’t think fast, the blackness will come
And all of my hopes will lie here undone
My love is all that I have, so how can I survive?
My love is all that I have, can it keep me alive?

Wait, what is this? I’m not alone.
I carry my child, his new flesh and bone.

He needs me now, I cannot give in
Must find the strength, can’t let the dark win.

Look at him now, his skin is so warm
With this kind of love, I’ll weather the storm
His love is all that I need, his touch leaves me inspired
His love is all that I need, with this we shall survive.

I beat the curse the first time, by holding fast to my mind
With his love I’ll find the power, to turn this desperate hour

His love is all that I need, his touch leaves me inspired
His love is all that I need, with this we shall survive.

I see it now, the poison is strong
Cause it’s made of hate, it comes from wrong.

But it has no hold, not on me know
I know the truth, I know how.

I’m not afraid and fear is the key
With him in my arms I’ll break my way free
His love is all that I need, his touch leaves me inspired
His love is all that I need, with this we shall survive.

I’ll beat this horrible curse, by thinking of my son first
With each step I find the power to turn this desperate hour
His love is all that I need, his touch leaves me inspired
His love is all that I need, with this we have survived.

I know what you’ve done, your plot is awry
Hate can’t kill me, so why did you try?

Make you wonder what’s at stake

(Ah take a stand)
Nothing on this Earth will stay my hand

Maybe I should send my men instead (charge!)
To seize victory where others lost

I can’t let myself consider cost
(Ah consider cost)

I live for the chance to make a difference
(Ah Ah Ah)
Righting wrongs and standing for the weak!

14. Our Future is Bright to See

SNOW WHITE
Is this the end? Am I free at last?
He’s really gone, the horrors have passed.

Now I can be Queen, and be your good wife
Leave this behind, embrace our new life

With the bow only you can pull

It seemed a fitting fate

Our future is bright to see.

I don’t know how, but I have survived
Held onto love, glad to be alive

I kept my faith, that right would win out
Fought all these things, that would make me doubt

Through nightmares so dark, and mirrors possessed,
Murderous monks and giants obsessed.

Now I can step to the light,
Our dreams can be set free
It’s true I’m having your son,
Our future is bright to see.

You say you’re having my son,
Our future is bright indeed!

Old Krosus is gone, his plans are now foiled
Your father’s blood line will go on unspoiled.

Our son will keep our kingdom secure
No matter what their clan’s future.

Cause our valiant son is up for the fight

Now we can step to the light,
Our dreams can now fly free
You say you’re having my son,
Our future is bright indeed!

MASTER PO
A brand new baby prince boy
Will bring us much needed joy

Can fulfill his destiny.

You say you’re having my son,
Our future is bright indeed!

The nightmares will end, at last you can rest
We can enjoy our life at its best
Now you can rule as a great queen
Guided by love and the strength that we’ve seen.

Your love has shown, the path to the light,
You’ve overcome all, to get to what’s right

PRINCE CHARMING & SNOW WHITE
Now we can step to the light,
Our dreams can now fly free
You say you’re having my son (Yes, I’m having your son.)
Our future is bright to see!

I’m proud that you fought so brave
The villain from beyond the grave.
But he could not rise above
The power of our love.

ALL DWARVES & MEN AT ARMS
Now we can step to the light,
Our dreams can now fly free
You say you’re having my son (Yes, I’m having your son.)
(Queen Snow is having a son)
Our future is bright to see!
