Sound the bugle now.
This is the end of the story.
Dorothy's gone, true.
But so is Elphaba, the Witch.
Play it just for me,
The one who always looked happy.
I should act like I care
As the seasons change, remember how I used to be.
Please, whoever's up there,
Please remember, I used to care.
Now I can't go on.
I can't act like I love her anymore
I can't even start,
I don't remember who I was
I don't remember who she was.
I got nothing left,
At least I could've held onto a memory.
Just an empty heart,
That's what you left me!
After everything we'd had together.
I'm a soldier, wounded so I must give up the fight.
Remember when we fought over a pair of shoes?
Remember when the rest of the world ruined our love?
There's nothing more for me,
Nothing. I wish… I wish I was dead.
No, I just wish I was a kid again.
I wish we were both kids again.
It's too late for that.
Lead me away.
Leave me lying here,
The last one standing,
Now that everyone else is gone.
Sound the bugle now,
Act like I'm still important.
Tell them I don't care
Because I'm not important to her anymore.
I don't think I ever was.
There's not a road I know that leads to anywhere.
Because the Yellow Brick Road,
It led to a new life.
And my life, it was going somewhere too.
You were the brightness in my life.
And then you went out.
Without a light I feel that I will stumble in the dark
But nobody cares, not anymore
You know what I should do?
Lay right down and decide not to go on.
Then from on high,
As if you were still alive.
Somewhere in the distance,
Maybe I can pretend you're still watching,
I can act like you still care
There's a voice that calls, "Remember who you are."
You know who I used to be?
I used to be Elphaba's friend.
I don't know what I am now.
If you lose yourself,
Heck, she died. What happened to me?
Your courage soon will follow.
Whatever. I don't need her. I'm me.
So be strong tonight.
I've been strong before.
I know you thought that this me was silly,
But I like it.
Remember who you are.
You're a soldier now,
You fought your battle,
And you lost. That's funny.
Because here I am.
Fighting in a battle
And maybe now, now you'll see that I don't need you.
I loved you, but you're gone.
And you know what I want?
To be free once more.
Because I'm who I am, and it's hard, you should know that.
But I can be whoever I want.
With or without you.
And that's worth fighting for.
