Dear Evan Hansen Wiki

"In the Bedroom Down the Hall" is a cut song included in the Deluxe album of Dear Evan Hansen. It was originally going to be a part of the show, somewhere around where "To Break in a Glove" currently takes place. It was then scrapped during production, and another cut song, "This'll Be the Year", was inserted at the beginning, functioning as a duet between the two mothers. "Anybody Have a Map?" later replaced it.

Lyrics

[CYNTHIA]
You never liked this sweater
You said it never really fit you right
And it itched too much
But I think I’ll keep it
I should keep it
'Cause it still makes me think of you
And that little boy I knew
In the bedroom down the hall

[HEIDI]
In the bedroom down the hall
I got you Ninja Turtle night-lights

For protection
You used to say
"They kept the bad guys far away"
Remember?'

In the bedroom down the hall
I surprised you with

That comic book collection
Next Halloween
I dressed you up like Wolverine
Remember?

With glow stars on the ceiling
You could count instead of sheep
I always knew which song to sing
To get you right to sleep

Anything to make you happy
Anything at all
Anything for my boy

In the bedroom down the hall

[CYNTHIA]
In the bedroom down the hall
We went to battle

Ev'ry evening after dinner
I thought I knew

Some way that I’d get through to you
Remember?

In the bedroom down the hall
We fought a war

Where no one walked away a winner
'Cause every day

You pulled a little more away
Remember?

Saw the counselors and the clinics
And the cures a mother tries
'Cause maybe they could take away
That anger in your eyes

[CYNTHIA/HEIDI]
Anything to make you happy
Anything at all
Anything for my boy

In the bedroom down the hall

[CYNTHIA]
Though you try

‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ [HEIDI]
‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ You try

[CYNTHIA/HEIDI]
To give your kid the world
Give ‘em ev'rything you’ve got

[CYNTHIA]
What if I
Gave all I could?
And I thought it was enough

‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ [HEIDI]
‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ What if I
‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ Gave all I could?
‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ And I thought it was enough

[CYNTHIA]
But I find that it

[CYNTHIA/HEIDI]
Was not

[CYNTHIA]
Did I let you down?

[HEIDI]
What else can I do?

[CYNTHIA/HEIDI]
Ev'rything I ever did
I did it all for you

Anything to make you happy
Anything at all
Anything for my boy
In the bedroom down the hall

[CYNTHIA]
In the bedroom down the hall
I think I’ll wait another day
To pack these boxes
'Cause once I’m through
I’m left with just one thing to do
Remember
