Russell Crowe - Javert's Suicide lyrics

Who is this man, what sort of devil is he
To have me caught in a trap and choose to let me go free
It was his hour at last to put a seal on my fate
Wipe out the past and wash me clean off the slate
All it would take was a flick of his knife
Vengeance was his and he gave me back my life

Damned if I live in the debt of a thief
Damned if I yield at the end of the chase
I am the law and the law is not mocked
I'll spit his pity right back in his face
There is nothing on Earth that we share
It is either Valjean or Javert

And my thoughts fly apart
Can this man be believed
Shall his sins be forgiven
Shall his crimes be reprieved

And must I now begin to doubt
Who never doubted all these years
My heart is stone and still it trembles
The world I have known is lost in shadow

Is he from heaven or from hell
And does he know
That granting me my life today
This man has killed me even so

I am reaching but I fall
And the stars are black and cold
As I stare into the void
Of a world that cannot hold

I'll escape now from that world
From the world of Jean Valjean
There is nowhere I can turn
There is now way to go on
