Yentl - Where Is It Written?

Music: Michel Legrand

Lyrics: Alan and Marilyn Bergman

Premiere: 1983


God, our merciful father,

I’m wrapped in a robe of light,

Clothed in your glory

That spreads its wings over my soul.

Maybe I be worthy


There’s not a morning I begin without

A thousand questions running through my mind,

That I don’t try to find the reason and the logic

In the world that God designed.

The reason why

a bird was given wings,

If not to fly and praise the sky

With every song it sings.

What’s right or wrong,

Where I belong

Within the scheme of things...

And why have eyes that see

And arms that reach

Unless you’re meant to know

There’s something more?

If not to hunger for the meaning of it all,

Then tell me what a soul is for?

Why have the wings

Unless you’re meant to fly?

And tell me please, why have a mind

If not to question why?

And tell me where-

Where is it written what it is

I’m meant to be, that I can’t dare

To have the chance to pick the fruit of every tree,

Or have my share of every sweet-imagined possibility?

Just tell me where, tell me where?

If I were only meant to tend the nest,

Then why does my imagination sail

Across the mountains and the seas,

Beyond the make-believe of any fairy tale?

Why have the thirst if not to drink the wine?

And what a waste to have a taste

Of things that can't he mine?

And tell me where, where is it written what it is

I'm meant to be, that I can't dare-

To find the meanings in the mornings that I see,

Or have my share of every sweet-imagined possibility?

Just tell me where- where is it written?

Tell me where-

Or if it's written anywhere?
