When I heard that Marius friendzoned Eponine, I lost all respect for him...this song makes me regret this.

Oh, my friends my friends,
Forgive me
That I live and you are gone.
There's a grief that can't be spoken,
There's a pain goes on and on.

Phantom faces at the windows,
Phantom shadows on the floor.
Empty chairs at empty tables
Where my friends will meet no more.

Oh, my friends my friends,
Don't ask me
What your sacrifice was for.
Empty chairs at empty tables,
Where my friends will sing no more.


That is my favorite part, and the part that reduces me to tears every time.

I managed to work some of these lyrics into a reflection from a debate in school the other day and felt pretty damn proud. I don't think my teacher understood the reference though...

Oddly enough, the time that I usually get emotional about is at about 2:00 in... but I love the whole song anyway.
