Queen Esther sings @katyperry’s “the one that got away”

Queen Esther sings @katyperry’s “the one that got away” (to Mordechai then to Haggai, then Achashverosh)

Esther:
Shortly after exile when we first met
I missed my mom and father, cause they’re both dead
Now it’s my 16th Birthday
And the Persian king wants to choose

Used to hear that parents bicker
And yell at the youth
But we’d talk about our future
And the God of the Jews
Sometimes I planned that one day
I’d be marrying you

In another life
I would be your girl
Now you tell me to promise
I have to give you my word

In another life
You would make me stay
So i wouldn’t have to say
I can’t tell them my nation or my name
my nation or my name

[Esther now sings to Haggai]

I’m brand new and you are my Fashion Sense
Six months in myrrh and six months in scents
Thanks for all you do
And the favors you have shown (Whoa)

Someone said you gave me the choicest food
Set my bedding down in the best spot you could choose
It’s time to meet his highness
I’l do what you say to do

But it’s another life
I’m not really this girl
I’ve got to keep promises
Can’t go against my word

It’s a crazy life
I’ll do all you say
Even though I prayed
I’d be the one that got away
The one that got away
The o-o-o-o-o-one [x3]
The one that got away

[Bridge:] <- in harem, to imagined Mordechai]
All these girls are dying to be the Queen (Nooooo)
I can’t replace you with a million Kings (Nooooo)
I should’ve told you that you and I should flee (Whoa)
‘Cause now I’m just his prize

[Sings to Achashverosh, flirty-shy]

Oh this royal life
I should be your girl
I’ll fulfill all your wishes
Be us against the world

If I were your wife
you would want to stay
send everyone away
So I can turn your night into day

The one you ask to stay
The o-o-o-o-o-one [x3]

I could be your wife
If you want me today
all you have to say
Is I’m the one who gets to stay
The one who gets to stay
