Song lyrics:

Kim
good evening, maam

Ellen
dont turn the bed yet

Kim
Im not the maid

Ellen
what do you want then?

Kim
they must have written the room number wrong
I am looking for someone named Christopher Scott
three-seventeen, oh Im sorry... unless
well, you must be, of course, youre Johns wife, are you not?

Ellen
oh God, I see
it had to happen
you must be Kim
Chris went to find you
please come inside
no one will hurt you
Im Chriss wife
my name is Ellen

( Kim doesnt move)

Ellen
in a way, I am glad I am meeting you first
understand, you were only a name till tonight
I dont know how Id feel if our roles were reversed
please wont you sit down

Kim
tell me you are lying

Ellen
weve been married a year, I am sorry, its true

Kim
he said hed come to get me

Ellen
he says he tried to reach you, but what could he do?

Kim
please tell me youre not married
you dont know, you cant know what Ive done to be here

Ellen
you dont know how he needed a new start

Kim


I feel walls in my heart
closing in
I cant breathe
I cant win

Ellen
as for the child
you say its Chriss

Kim
oh yes, Madame
my son is Chriss
I had a dream for my son to belong
and not live his life in the streets like a rat

Ellen
we arent rich, but well shoulder our load
Chris and I are totally together on that

Kim
then you must take Tam with you

Ellen
take a child from his mother, impossible Kim

Kim
you will take Tam with you
then hell get what I wanted for him

Ellen
but Kim, your child needs you
Chris is married to me, we want kids of our own

Kim
Tams chance lies with you now, not with me

Both
no!
cant you see
it wont work
it cant be

Kim
if youre saying that because youve made him change his mind
Chris must go away and leave me and his son behind
if youre saying that because my husband has another wife
my child has no future, like the dust of life
he must come tonight to my place
tell me so to my face

Ellen
I dont want this
I didnt come here
to meet a girl
who loves my husband
I came here to help, but what do I do?
now, after this, what do I . . .
