The Greatest Show
Hugh Jackman Lyrics


Whoa
Whoa
Whoa
Whoa
Whoa
Whoa
Whoa
Whoa
Whoa

Ladies and gents, this is the moment you've waited for (whoa)
Been searching in the dark, your sweat soaking through the floor (whoa)
And buried in your bones there's an ache that you can't ignore
Taking your breath, stealing your mind
And all that was real is left behind

Don't fight it, it's coming for you, running at ya
It's only this moment, don't care what comes after
Your fever dream, can't you see it getting closer
Just surrender 'cause you feel the feeling taking over
It's fire, it's freedom, it's flooding open
It's a preacher in the pulpit and your blind devotion
There's something breaking at the brick of every wall, it's holding
All that you know
So tell me, do you wanna go?

Where it's covered in all the colored lights
Where the runaways are running the night
Impossible comes true, it's taking over you
Oh, this is the greatest show
We light it up, we won't come down
And the sun can't stop us now
Watching it come true, it's taking over you
Oh, this is the greatest show

(Whoa) colossal we come these renegades in the ring
(Whoa) where the lost get found in the crown of the circus king

Don't fight it, it's coming for you, running at ya
It's only this moment, don't care what comes after
It's blinding, outshining anything that you know
Just surrender 'cause you're calling and you wanna go

Where it's covered in all the colored lights
Where the runaways are running the night
Impossible comes true, intoxicating you
Oh, this is the greatest show
We light it up, we won't come down
And the sun can't stop us now
Watching it come true, it's taking over you
Oh, this is the greatest show

It's everything you ever want
It's everything you ever need
And it's here right in front of you
This is where you wanna be (this is where you wanna be)
It's everything you ever want
It's everything you ever need
And it's here right in front of you
This is where you wanna be
This is where you wanna be

When it's covered in all the colored lights
Where the runaways are running the night
Impossible comes true, it's taking over you
Oh, this is the greatest show
We light it up, we won't come down
And the sun can't stop us now
Watching it come true, it's taking over you
This is the greatest show
When it's covered in all the colored lights
Where the runaways are running the night
Impossible comes true, it's taking over you
Oh, this is the greatest show
We light it up, we won't come down
And the walls can't stop us now
I'm watching it come true, it's taking over you
Oh, this is the greatest show

'Cause everything you want is right in front of you
And you see the impossible is coming true
And the walls can't stop us (now) now, yeah

This is the greatest show (oh)
This is the greatest show (oh)
This is the greatest show (oh)
This is the greatest show (oh)
This is the greatest show (oh)
This is the greatest show (oh)
(This is the greatest show)
This is the greatest show (oh)
This is the greatest show

I love how genuinely happy Hugh seems to be performing this. Doesn't seem fake or forced. He's so talented and loves doing what he does.

ladygreyheart2012

@Mus Azman Hugh won a Tony for his role as Peter Allen in "Boy From Oz".

Sharon Mateo

@Georgiy Rudnev Of course…but getting paid to do what you love hits different

DESIGNER'S ORIGINAL

I agree. (natural)

adebimpe olaoya

Effortless. Although, I feel he held back until 2:03

MEAT

It was the role of a lifetime for Mr. Jackman.

RosaMejiaMusic

Have you seen him in Les Miserables?? The whole movie was sung live. He's a singer 100%

MCubed Cosplay

@Hufflepuff_Queen it was actually on west end in England, he was good!

MCubed Cosplay

He was also Curly in Oklahoma on the West End in England. He’s been on Broadway about as long as he was Wolverine. He’s def a professional singer. Wolverine was a lucky break but he did this WAY before
