Most Powerful ‘Hamilton’ Lyrics For Instagram Captions

We dream of a brand new start.

The world will never be the same.

New ideas in the air.

This is not a moment. It’s the movement.

I’ve got to be in the room where it happens.

Sometimes I wonder why I even bring the thunder.

We rise, and we fall, and we break, and we make our mistakes.

There’s nothing like summer in the city.

I’m a diamond in the rough, a shining piece of coal.

How lucky we are to be around right now.

I’ve never been satisfied. I will never be satisfied.

I’m a trust fund baby, you can trust me.

Don’t be shocked when your history book mentions me.

There are moments that the words don’t reach.

Close your eyes and dream.

I pray, that never used to happen before.

In the eye of the hurricane, there is quiet for just a moment, a yellow sky.

The moments when you’re in so deep, it feels easier to just swim down.

The world has no right to my heart.

Look at where we are, look at where we started.
