An underhanded girl
An act of desperation
And to my consternation
I let you go

[Well not this time]
[Paris is no place for a good and loyal Russian]

[We are both good and loyal Russians]

[I’ve come to take you home]

[My home is here now]

[Stop playing this game, Anya!]
[I beg you]

[We both know it’s not a game Gleb]

[If you really are Anastasia]
[Do you think history wants you to have lived?]

[Why don’t you?]

[The Romanovs were given everything
[And they gave back nothing]
[Until the Russian people rose up and destroyed them]

[All but one]
[Finish it]
[I am my father’s daughter]

[And I am my father’s son!]
[Finish it I must]

My father shook his head and told me not to ask
My mother said he died of shame

[In me you see them]
[Look at their faces in mine]
[Hear their screams]
[Imagine their terrors]
[See their blood]

But I believe he did a proud and vital task
And in my father's name

[Do it and I will be with my parents and my brother and sisters]
[In that cellar in Yekaterinburg all over again]

The children
Their voices
A man makes painful choices
He does what’s necessary, Anya

For Russia, my beauty
What choice but simple duty
We have a past to bury, Anya

And the Neva flows, a new wind blows
And soon it will be spring
The leaves unfold, the Tsar lies cold

Be careful what a dream may bring!
A revolution is a simple thing!
