  • me: i have nothing to read
  • me: *has 20 unread books on bookshelf*
I always get emotional now listening to "The Story of Tonight"

Why?

The first lines of the song (I may not live to see our glory…) open with Alexander. The next set (Raise a glass to freedom) opens with Laurens.

Fast forward to when they’re dying. Laurens’ last words of the show are “I may not live to see our glory…” while Alexander’s last words of the show are “Raise a glass to freedom.”

In their times of death, Hamilton and Laurens quoted each other.
