Dear Evan Hansen Wiki

"Disappear" is the ninth song in Act One of Dear Evan Hansen.

As Connor's memory begins to fade, Evan feels he is reverting back to being invisible and alone, and so is given the idea to create a project to keep Connor's memory alive, raise awareness for outcasts like Connor (and Evan), as well as keep Evan from returning to anonymity.

Lyrics[]

[CONNOR MURPHY]
Guys like you and me
We're just the losers
Who keep waiting to be seen, right?
I mean no one seems to care
Or stops to notice that we're there
So we get lost in the in-between

But
If you can somehow keep them thinking of me
And make me more than an abandoned memory
Well that means we matter too
It means someone will see that you are there

No one deserves to be forgotten
No one deserves to fade away
No one should come and go
And have no one know he was ever even here
No one deserves to disappear
To disappear
Disappear

[EVAN HANSEN]
It's true.​

[CONNOR]
Even if you've always been that
Barely-in-the-background kind of guy

[EVAN & CONNOR]
You still matter

[CONNOR]
And even if you're somebody who can't escape the feeling
That the world's passed you by

[EVAN]
You still matter

[CONNOR][EVAN]
If you never get around to doing some remarkable thing
That doesn't meanThat doesn't mean
That you're not worth remembering

[CONNOR]
Think of the people who need to know

[EVAN]
They need to know

[CONNOR][EVAN]
So you need
to show themI need to show them

[EVAN & CONNOR]
That no one deserves to be forgotten

[EVAN]
No one deserves to be forgotten

[EVAN & CONNOR]
No one deserves to fade away

[EVAN]
To fade away

[EVAN & CONNOR]
No one should flicker out or have any doubt
That it matters that they are here

[EVAN]
No one deserves

[CONNOR]
No one deserves

[EVAN & CONNOR]
To disappear
To disappear
Disappear

[CONNOR]
When you're falling in a forest
And there's nobody around
All you want is for somebody to find you
When you're falling in a forest
And when you hit the ground
All you need is for somebody to find you

[EVAN]
I'm calling it the Connor Project.​

[JARED KLEINMAN]
The Connor Project?

[EVAN]
A student group dedicated to keeping Connor's memory alive, to showing that everybody should matter.​

[ALANA BECK]
We have to do this. Not just for Connor, for everyone.​

[EVAN]
'Cause no one deserves to be forgotten

[ALANA & JARED][EVAN]
No one deserves
to fade awayNo one deserves to fade away

[EVAN]
We're calling it the Connor Project.​

[CYNTHIA MURPHY]
The Connor Project?

[EVAN]
Imagine a major online presence—

[JARED]
A massive fundraising drive—

[ALANA]
And for the kickoff event: an all-school memorial assembly.​

[LARRY MURPHY]
I didn't realize Connor meant this much to people.​

[CYNTHIA]
Oh Evan, this is wonderful!

[CYNTHIA][EVAN]
No one deserves to be
forgottenNo one deserves to fade away

[ALANA & CYNTHIA]
No one deserves to disappear

[EVAN]
No one deserves to disappear

[EVAN, ALANA, JARED & CYNTHIA]
No one should flicker out or have any doubt
That it matters that they are here

[EVAN][ALANA][JARED]
