OASIS lyrics : "Carry Us All"

(the ENGINEER enters, looking for KIM)

ENGINEER

coo-coo princess, look who's here
your resurrected Engineer
don't ask me how I tracked you down

who has the sharpest nose in town?
I'm here to throw a rope before you drown


for men, will always be men
you change the regime
the lust doesn't stop

you and I will team up again
together we'll reap
the cream of the crop


KIM
Engineer, I don't want you here

I gave up that life
you must understand


ENGINEER
out that door is a big shot who waits
like a pup to come up

and eat out of your hand
Kim, the good times are back


KIM
don't go on
it's too late


ENGINEER
not too late for my star!


KIM
please let me hide in peace


ENGINEER
better to screw the police

enter, monsieur commissar

(THUY enters)


THUY
three years I've been away

I kept faith we would meet

ENGINEER

me, I found her for you

THUY

you, out in the street

(the ENGINEER and the others leave)


THUY
I knew in time faith would weave a design

tying your life and mine into one
each day I'd wait
like a soldier must wait

trusting victory to come with the sun
after the fight in the still of the night
I would picture my bride, bright as jade

you'll be my wife
we will build a new life
and fulfill the vow our fathers made


KIM
my father's vow I can't honor today

and I pray in my heart he'll forgive
what you want now are some words I can't say
if I lied to you how can I live?


THUY
don't say anymore!

not a word!
you can change
you can learn
look at me
don't decide too soon


KIM
somewhere deep in my soul
shines the smallest of lights
and no wind blows it out

it burns steady and strong
through the darkest of nights

dju vui vay
yu doi my

dju vui vay
vao nyay moy

I made a promise once with these words
which neither time nor distance has changed

he will come to me, still

THUY
you must be mad, your american jack
has gone for good and he'll never come back
they ran away with the skin they could save

the ones who stayed here are dead in a grave

(the ENGINEER re-enters)

ENGINEER
come on now, princess, get off your cloud
I'm sorry, sir, she was talking so loud

the commissar is a powerful man
a girl with brains makes a life where she can
princess remember your place
don't make people lose face

THUY
why do you look away?

I can end all this shame
all you need say is, 'yes'

(from outside, soldiers are heard marching by)

you hear those soldiers out there
they'll do whatever I say


KIM
I cannot change how I feel!

THUY
come inside!
I think you can change before my eyes


this me-my has just been found
she hid the day we closed the bars
show her that we don't forget
no one is cured here without scars

SOLDIER #1

you are a woman who lived without shame

SOLDIER #2
you're an infection left over from war

SOLDIER #3
you have dishonored the national name

SOLDIER #4
re-education will cure the disease

SOLDIER #5
you must be shown what we do to a leach

SOLDIER #6
see how we teach an American's [email protected]^%

ENGINEER
I have heard hundreds of speeches like these
take it from me you don't want to hear more

THUY
it's time to act
my friends it's time

SOLDIERS
her face betrays her crime
she must pay, and her partner too

THUY
get out!!
everybody out!!

ENGINEER
are you waiting for them to kill me?
did you not get what he said?
there's a big screw loose inside you
I will rip it out of your head

that's a mad dog on the rampage
if you think he'll change, save your breath
just say 'yes', I don't care if you love him
Princess, life has it all over death!

KIM
I have a husband I love
real as the sun in the sky
I cannot live with a lie

THUY
do you see now who has the power?
do you still think crazy things?

KIM
Chris will come to me like the Phoenix
and he'll take me off on his wings

THUY
you're a traitor to your country

KIM
if I am, then let it be

KIM, THUY and the ENGINEER
I am talking of life or death now
I am talking of staying free

ENGINEER
so there it is now, I'll be moving on
if you don't need me, I'd rather be gone
two kids in love don't need strangers around

THUY
you just get out!

ENGINEER
right! I won't make a sound

(grabs his sack and exits)

THUY
and as for you, come with me

KIM
no!

there is a secret
that you don't know
there is a force here
I never show
you say it's treason
to keep my vow
season after season
I survived somehow
if you want the reason
I will show you now

Tam!

(TAM comes out from behind the curtain and runs to KIM)

look, Thuy, this is my son
he has kept me alive
now you see why
I must tell you 'no'
