The original form of "One Day More", one of the most iconic songs from Les Misérables, "Demain" involves nearly every character in the musical. From Jean Valjean's fear for his adopted daughter Cosette, to Cosette and Marius's fear of being separated from each other, to the revolutionary climate preparing to boil over in the hopes of ushering in a new age of liberty for France, every thread of the story comes together in Demain, which allows it to speak for the musical all on its own. The song occurs at the end of the first act, ushering in the second with prophetic lyrics that reference its own very placement in the musical: "Demain sera pour tous un lendemain qui ne peut pas mentir // C'est demain que chacun connaîtra son destin!" (Translation: "Tomorrow will be, for everyone, a day that tells no lies // Tomorrow each man will know his fate!")
