His Work and Nothing More is a piece written for the 1987 Demo recording that survived until the final stage of the show, though it was later edited somewhat and is usually known as Your Work and Nothing More.

Mr Utterson arrives at Jekyll's home to find him a changed man and tries to preventing him from destroying himself through his work, whilst Jekyll ponders if he has truly lost everything but his work. Outside, Sir Danvers Carew and his daughter debate Henry's state of mind, Danvers believing he has nothing of himself left, but that he will pray for the young man's salvation nonetheless.

LyricsEdit

UTTERSON
 This is not the man I knew!
 There's something deeply troubling you!
 How long do you plan
 To hide away here?
 This increasing isolation
 Only adds to your frustration
 And it could endanger your career!

JEKYLL
 John, I don't need you to turn on me as well!
 More than ever now I need a friend!
 Can't you see and don't you know I've been through hell?
 Don't condemn what you don't comprehend!

UTTERSON
 Henry, I'm not questioning your motives here!
 But is what you're seeking worth the price?
 You've turned your back on everything you once held dear
 You're choosing to ignore your friend's advice!

You have your work
 And nothing more!
 You are possessed
 What is your demon?
 You've never been
 This way before
 You've lost the fire
 You built your dream on!

There's something strange
 There's something wrong
 I see a change
 It's like when love dies.
 I who have known
 You for so long
 I see the pain in your eyes

There was a time
 You lived your life
 And no one lived
 The way that you did!
 You had a plan
 You found a wife
 You saw your world
 As very few did!

You had it all!
 The overall!
 You seemed to know
 Just what to live for!
 But now it seems
 You don't at all!
 You have your work
 Nothing more!

UTTERSON
You have your work
 And nothing more!
 You are possessed
 What is your demon?
 
JEKYLL
Have
 I
 Be-
 come
      
You've never been
 This way before
 You've lost the fire
 You built your dream on

My
 Work and
 Nothing
 More?
      
There's something strange
 There's something wrong
 I see a change
 It's like when love dies.

I
 Know
 That's
 Not
      
I who have known you
 For so long
 I see the pain
 In your eyes.

What
 I'm
 Living
 For!

LISA
 Father, you know Henry won't just walk away
 The only way he knows is straight ahead!

SIR DANVERS
 Lisa, you've not heard a single word I've said
 My fear is he's in over his head!
 He could lose control and that I dread!
 There has been talk
 They say he's gone too far!
 He's locked himself away in his own world
 Pursuing this insanity...

LISA
 It is his work!

SIR DANVERS
 It's more than work!
 He is obsessed!
 The man is driven!

LISA
 Just give him time!
 I ask no more!
 His work's a crime to be forgiven!

SIR DANVERS
 There's something strange
 Unless I'm blind
 I see a change
 Of a bizarre kind!

LISA
 There's not at all!
 Don't be unkind!
 The problem's all in your mind!

SIR DANVERS
 He has his work
 And nothing more!
 He is obsessed
 The man is driven!

UTTERSON
 Have you
 Be-
 Come

  JEKYLL
 Lisa...

LISA
 Just give him time
 I ask no more!
 His work's a crime
 To be forgiven!

UTTERSON
 Your
 Work and
 Nothing
 More?

JEKYLL
 Lisa...
        
SIR DANVERS
 There's something strange
 Unless I'm blind
 I see a change
 Of a bizarre kind!

UTTERSON
 I
 Know
 That's
 Not

JEKYLL
 Lisa...
          
LISA
 There's not at all!
 Don't be unkind
 The problem's all
 In your mind!

UTTERSON
 What
 You're
 Living
 For

JEKYLL
 Lisa...

LISA
 Still I pray
 Every day
 Henry may
 Find his way
 I pray he
 May find
 His way

SIR DANVERS
Dear, I pray
Every day
Henry may
Find his way
I pray he
May find
His way

UTTERSON
I
Pray
You
May
Find
Your
Way

JEKYLL
I
Pray
I
May
Find
My
Way
                
I will pray
 Every day
 Henry may
 Find his way
 I pray
 He may find I will pray
 Every day
 You two may
 Find your way
 I pray
 You may find I
 Pray
 You
 May
 Find I
 Pray
 I
 May
 Find
                
His way. Your way. Your way. My way.
