    He thinks that man is me
    He knew him at a glance!
    That stranger he has found
    This man could be my chance!

    Why should I save his hide?
    Why should I right this wrong
    When I have come so far
    And struggled for so long?

    If I speak, I am condemned.
    If I stay silent, I am damned!

    I am the master of hundreds of workers.
    They all look to me.
    How can I abandon them?
    How would they live
    If I am not free?

    If I speak, I am condemned.
    If I stay silent, I am damned!

    Who am I?
    Can I condemn this man to slavery
    Pretend I do not feel his agony
    This innocent who bears my face
    Who goes to judgement in my place
    Who am I?
    Can I conceal myself for evermore?
    Pretend I'm not the man I was before?
    And must my name until I die
    Be no more than an alibi?
    Must I lie?
    How can I ever face my fellow men?
    How can I ever face myself again?
    My soul belongs to God, I know
    I made that bargain long ago
    He gave me hope when hope was gone
    He gave me strength to journey on

    Who am I? Who am I?
    I am Jean Valjean!

    And so Javert, you see it's true
    That man bears no more guilt than you!
    Who am I?
