Esther sings set fire to the rain as interior monologue

Esther sings set fire to the rain as interior monologue, some point near middle of song, she begins to adorn self, makeup, clothes. Needs to be done for final chorus

I heard my call, my heart,
And as a Jew I have to claim it
Times are dark and I sought cover
Until you reminded me and that saved me

My faith, it’s strong
But my knees still feel too weak
It’s time to take up arms
and if I’m lost, that fate’s meant for me

But there’s a side to me
That I never knew, never knew.
All the things you’d say
I thought were never true, never true,
And my name you say
It was always destined, always destined…

[Chorus:]

But I can’t hide like my name,
Belle du jour, just a pretty face
Shushan will kill Jews will die
And I know I’ll be to blame, to blame

When I lived with you
I could feel safe there, close my eyes
it’s your Hadas, Mordechai
You and me are severed, Now I’m just Esther

‘But there’s a side to me
That I never knew, never knew.
All the things you’d say
I thought were never true, never true,
And my name you say
It was always destined, always destined..

[Chorus:]
But I can’t hide behind my fame,
Belle du jour, just a pretty face
Shushan will burns with my cries
If I don’t act I’m to blame, to blame!

I’ll set fire with my pain
And I’ll burn away Amalek’s stains and I know I might die
So I’m writing to you for the last time, it’s past time!

So it’s time i walk to his door,
That part you taught me must be coming true
Even now when my life may be over
I know this is a part of being a Jew

[Chorus:]
But I’ll set fire with my name,
Belle du jour now reveals her race
and I’ll plead for our lives
and this adversary Haman will hang

I’m a fire, Ishtar’s my name,
sex&warfare are my game
Well my innocence died
Cause my anger destroys all I find
I’m divine
oh, oh noooooo!

Let it burn
Oh oh ohhhh
Let them hang
Oh oh ohhhh
Let it burn
Oh oh ohhhh
