Witch's Lament is the song from the 2014 musical film Into the Woods. This song performed by Meryl Streep as the Witch. She sings this song out of regret and sadness after losing Rapunzel.

Lyrics

Witch: (to herself)

No matter what you say, children won't listen

No matter what you know, Children refuse to learn.

Guide them along the way, still they won't listen.

Children can only grow from something you love, to something you lose...

Witch:

This is the world I meant.

Couldn't you listen?

Couldn't you stay content,

Safe behind walls, As I Could not?

No matter what you say, Children won't listen.

No matter what you know, Children refuse To learn.

Guide them along the way, Still they won't listen.

Children can only grow

From something you love

To something you lose...
