"The World Was Wide Enough" from the musical HAMILTON
Performed by Alex Lacamoire, Leslie Odom Jr., Lin-Manuel Miranda, Original Broadway Cast of Hamilton
Written by Lin-Manuel Miranda
www.HamiltonMusical.com
[MALE COMPANY]
One two three four
[FULL COMPANY (EXCEPT HAMILTON AND BURR)]
Five six seven eight nine-
[BURR]
There are ten things you need to know
[COMPANY]
Number one!
[BURR]
We rowed across the Hudson at dawn
My friend, William P. Van Ness signed on as my-
[BURR AND COMPANY]
Number two!
[BURR]
Hamilton arrived with his crew:
Nathaniel Pendleton and a doctor that he knew
[COMPANY]
Number three!
[BURR]
I watched Hamilton examine the terrain
I wish I could tell you what was happ’ning in his brain
This man has poisoned my political pursuits!
[COMPANY]
Most disputes die and no one shoots!
Number four!
[BURR]
Hamilton drew first position
Looking, to the world, like a man on a mission
This is a soldier with a marksman’s ability
The doctor turned around so he could have deniability
[COMPANY]
Five!
[BURR]
Now I didn’t know this at the time
But we were-
[BURR AND PHILIP & HAMILTON]
Near the same spot (Near the same spot)
Your son died, is that (My son died, is that)
Why-(Why-)
[COMPANY]
Six!
[BURR]
He examined his gun with such rigor?
I watched as he methodically fiddled with the trigger
[COMPANY]
Seven!
[BURR]
Confession time? Here’s what I got:
My fellow soldiers’ll tell you I’m a terrible shot
[COMPANY]
Number eight!
[BURR/HAMILTON/ENSEMBLE MEN]
Your last chance to negotiate
Send in your seconds, see if they can set the record straight
[BURR]
They won’t teach you this in your classes
But look it up, Hamilton was wearing his glasses
Why? If not to take deadly aim?
It’s him or me, the world will never be the same
I had only one thought before the slaughter:
This man will not make an orphan of my daughter
[COMPANY]
Number nine!
[BURR]
Look him in the eye, aim no higher
Summon all the courage you require
Then count:
[COMPANY]
One two three four five six seven eight nine
Number ten paces! Fire!-
[HAMILTON]
I imagine death so much it feels more like a memory
Is this where it gets me, on my feet, sev’ral feet ahead of me?
I see it coming, do I run or fire my gun or let it be?
There is no beat, no melody
Burr, my first friend, my enemy
Maybe the last face I ever see
If I throw away my shot, is this how you’ll remember me?
What if this bullet is my legacy?
Legacy. What is a legacy?
It’s planting seeds in a garden you never get to see
I wrote some notes at the beginning of a song someone will sing for me
America, you great unfinished symphony, you sent for me
You let me make a difference
A place where even orphan immigrants
Can leave their fingerprints and rise up
I’m running out of time. I’m running, and my time’s up
Wise up. Eyes up
I catch a glimpse of the other side
Laurens leads a soldiers’ chorus on the other side
My son is on the other side
He’s with my mother on the other side
Washington is watching from the other side
Teach me how to say goodbye
Rise up, rise up, rise up
Eliza
My love, take your time
I’ll see you on the other side
Raise a glass to freedom...
[BURR AND COMPANY]
He aims his pistol at the sky-
[BURR]
Wait!
[BURR]
I strike him right between his ribs
I walk towards him, but I am ushered away
They row him back across the Hudson
I get a drink
[COMPANY]
Aaaah
Aaaah
Aaaah
[BURR]
I hear wailing in the streets
[COMPANY]
Aaaah
Aaaah
Aaaah
[BURR]
Somebody tells me, “You’d better hide.”
[COMPANY]
Aaaah
Aaaah
Aaaah
[BURR]
They say
[BURR AND ANGELICA]
Angelica and Eliza-
[BURR]
Were both at his side when he died
Death doesn’t discriminate
Between the sinners and the saints
It takes and it takes and it takes
History obliterates
In every picture it paints
It paints me and all my mistakes
When Alexander aimed
At the sky
He may have been the first one to die
But I’m the one who paid for it
I survived, but I paid for it
Now I’m the villain in your history
I was too young and blind to see...
I should’ve known
I should’ve known
The world was wide enough for both Hamilton and me
The world was wide enough for both Hamilton and me

    Stuff I noticed different from TDC:
    -Burr doesn't sing with the ensemble with the "most disputes and no one shoots" part
    -The confession time line references yhe 7th number in TDC (Confess your sins, ready for the moment of blah blah blah)
    -Since I think, I THINK their seconds didn't have actors, only the two of them sung it. I meant in the your last chance to negotiate blah blah blah, you get it.
    -Burr took Hamilton's line in TDC saying the look him in the eye line to Laurens
    All things I noticed that either compared or referenced TDC. (Ten duel commandments)
    Other things that referenced other songs
    -Hamilton's whole verse (before the eyes up part) is a reference to his solo in My Shot
    -His Eliza part also referenced the bridge of Helpless (Eliza, I don't have a dollar to my..)
    -The he aims his pistol to the sky is a reference to Blow Us All Away, teaching Philip what to do in the Eacker duel.
    Those 3 are the only ones I could find, lemme know if there are any more then I'll edit it and credit the person who told me.

    The challenge, demand satisfaction
    If they apologize, no need for further action
    Number two
    If they don't, grab a friend, that's your second
    Your lieutenant when there's reckoning to be reckoned
    Number three
    Have your seconds meet face to face
    Negotiate a peace
    Or negotiate a time and place
    This is commonplace, 'specially 'tween recruits
    Most disputes die, and no one shoots
    Number four
    If they don't reach a peace, that's alright
    Time to get some pistols and a doctor on site
    You pay him in advance, you treat him with civility
    You have him turn around so he can have deniability
    Five
    Duel before the sun is in the sky
    Pick a place to die where it's high and dry
    Number six
    Leave a note for your next of kin
    Tell 'em where you been
    Pray that hell or heaven lets you in
    Seven
    Confess your sins
    Ready for the moment of adrenaline when you finally face your opponent
    Number eight
    Your last chance to negotiate
    Send in your seconds, see if they can set the record straight
    Alexander
    Aaron Burr, sir
    Can we agree that duels are dumb and immature?
    Sure
    But your man has to answer for his words, Burr
    With his life? We both know that's absurd, sir
    Hang on, how many men died because Lee was inexperienced and ruinous?
    Okay, so we're doin' this
    Number nine
    Look 'em in the eye, aim no higher
    Summon all the courage you require
    Then count
    One two three four
    Five six seven eight nine
    Number
    Ten paces
    Fire

    I kind of wish that the lyrics included Burr's full quote of "Had I read Sterne more and Voltaire less, I should have known the world was wide enough for Hamilton and me." Like Burr was a well read man but not read enough, you know. Still a good song.

    Fun history fact: So Hamilton wrote (and told the doctor) that he intended not to shoot at all, this would have violated one of the 25 duel commandments however and when Burr learned about that he responded, "Contemptible, if true." Also a thrown away shot was commonly shot into the ground and not the sky.

    The “I imagine death so much it feels more like a memory...” monologue is almost Shakespearean. I love it so much; it’s such an underrated and passionate moment. Lin-Manuel Miranda is a genius.

    Ah but this song! It really pushes back to so many moments throughout this entire performance, hittng on every major moment in his life literally your 'life flashing before your eyes' moment and its done so well.
    The same can be said for Burr as well. They tell you in the first song how the story ends and you get to see the tension build through the entire performance. Burr is as much the main character as Hamilton himself is.

      Likely because he noticed at that exact moment that Hamilton had no intention of shooting him as he bimself was pulling the trigger. Its that panicked exclamation when there is nothing you can do. At least the world set by this play,
