My Broadway boyfriend, Lin-Manuel Miranda, is at it again with his “Hamildrops” collaborations! This time it is with the song  “Found/Tonight” with Ben Platt to benefit the March for Our Lives from Atlantic Records available on iTunes and Amazon.

The song is a mash-up of “You Will Be Found” from the hit musical Dear Evan Hansen and “The Story of Tonight” from Hamilton produced and arranged by Alex Lacamoire, the musical supervisor for both productions.

Watch the video and read the lyrics below.

“Found/Tonight” Lyrics

[Verse 1: Ben Platt]
We may not yet have reached our glory
But I will gladly join the fight
And when our children tell their story
They’ll tell the story of tonight

They’ll tell the story of tonight
Tonight

[Verse 2: Lin-Manuel Miranda]
Have you ever felt like nobody was there?
Have you ever felt forgotten in the middle of nowhere?
Have you ever felt like you could disappear?
Like you could fall, and no one would hear?

[Verse 3: Ben Platt, Lin-Manuel Miranda]
Well, let that lonely feeling wash away
All we see is light
‘Cause maybe there’s a reason to believe you’ll be okay
For forever
‘Cause when you don’t feel strong enough to stand
You can reach, reach out your hand

[Verse 4: Ben Platt, Lin-Manuel MirandaBoth]
And oh
Raise a glass to freedom
Something they can never take away

Oh
No matter what they tell you
Someone will coming running
They’ll take you home
Raise a glass to all of us
Tomorrow there’ll be more of us
Telling the story of tonight
Out of the shadows
The morning is breaking      They’ll tell the story of
And all is new                        Tonight
All is new
All is new
It’s only a matter of
Time

[Verse 5: Both]
Even when the dark comes crashing through
When you need a friend to carry you
When you’re broken on the ground
You will be found
So let the sun come streaming in
‘Cause you’ll reach up and you’ll rise again
If you only look around
You will be found

[Verse 6: Ben Platt, Lin-Manuel MirandaBoth]
And when our children tell their story
You will be found
They’ll tell the story of tonight
Oh
No matter what they tell you
Tomorrow there’ll be more of us
Telling the story of tonight
The story of tonight
