FANTINE: Cosette, it's turned so cold Cosette, it's past your bedtime You've played the day away, and soon it will be night
Come to me, Cosette the light is fading Don't you see the evening star appearing? Come to me, and rest against my shoulder How fast the minutes fly away and every minute colder. Hurry near, another day is dying Don't you hear, the winter wind is crying? There's a darkness which comes without a warning But I will sing you lullabies and wake you in the morning.
VALJEAN: Oh Fantine, your time is running out But Fantine, I swear this on my life
FANTINE: Look M'sieur, where all the children play...
VALJEAN: Be at peace Be at peace evermore
FANTINE: My Cosette...
VALJEAN: Shall live in my protection
FANTINE: Take her now...
VALJEAN: Your child will want for nothing
FANTINE: Good M'sieur, you come from God in heaven
VALJEAN: And none will ever harm Cosette as long as I am living
FANTINE: Take my hand, the night grows ever colder
VALJEAN: And I will keep you warm
FANTINE: Take my child, I give her to your keeping
VALJEAN: Take shelter from the storm
FANTINE: For God's sake, please stay 'till I am sleeping And tell Cosette I love her, and I'll see her when I wake...
