I'll Cover You (Reprise) is sung by Collins after the death of his lover, Angel. The song is a much sadder version of I'll Cover You, the duet in which the couple gets together.[1] It is widely considered to be one of the most emotional songs in the musical.

[COLLINS]

Live in my house

I’ll be your shelter

Just pay me back

With one thousand kisses

Be my lover

And I’ll cover you

Yeah

Open your door

I’ll be your tenant

Don’t got much baggage

To lay at your feet

But sweet kisses I’ve got to spare

I’ll be there

And I’ll cover you

Oh

I think they meant it

When they said you can’t buy love

Now I know you can rent it

A new lease you were my love

On life

All my life I’ve longed to discover

Something as true as this is

Yeah


[Joanne (COMPANY 1){COMPANY 2}]

So with a thousand sweet kisses (I'll cover you) {525,600 minutes}

[COLLINS]

If you’re cold and you're lonely

[JOANNE (COMPANY 1){COMPANY 2}]

With a thousand sweet kisses (I’ll cover you) {525,600 moments so dear}

[COLLINS]

You’ve got one nickel only

[JOANNE (COMPANY 1)]

With a thousand sweet kisses (525,600 minutes)

[COLLINS]

When you worn out and you’re tired

[JOANNE (COMPANY 1){COMPANY 2}]

With a thousand sweet kisses (I’ll cover you) {525,000}

[COLLINS]

When your heart has expired

[ALL]

Ooohh Lover I’ll cover you

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeahhhhhh

Ooohhh lover I’ll cover you (525,600 minutes)

(525,000 seasons of love)

[COLLINS] I’ll cover you
