I come from down in the catacombs of the opera house.
I hide my face while I long for her.
While I long for her lovely voice.
I long for her lovely voice.
Her lovely voice. her lovely voice.
She sings la da da da...
Through every crack the voice of an angel.

She doesn't know who I am, for I am a ghost.
Oh, I am a ghost to her.
She doesn't know who I am and she never will
Unless I can make her believe.

I've gotta make her believe in the darker side of me.
So I ask her...
Take my hand and follow me on this journey to the underworld.
How I want her to want me.
Her soaring voice carries into my mind.
I'm gonna take her away, (take her away)
With me she will stay forever.
Don't deny me, understand that I, I am a monster.
I am a monster.
Won't you come with me now?

She doesn't know who I am,
For I am a ghost.
Oh, I am a ghost to her.
She doesn't know who I am, and she never will
Unless I can make her believe.
In me, in me, in me...

This face is deceitful when it smiles,
It doesn't show how desperate I am inside.
So come with me and we'll go,
Believe in me and I'll show you who I am.
So you can see the man behind the monster that I am.
Fighting my identity, I'll come take you away.

She doesn't know who I am,
For I am a ghost, oh I am to her.
She doesn't know who I am and she never will.
No she never, never will believe. believe in me...

    The phantom of the opera, obviously... He's always taking reference that he is a ghost, a monster, etc. And she doesn't who dafuq is him, just like the movie.

    It is really just the story of the phantom of the opera. A twisted love story, he loves her and he is a monster, she is beautiful and sings like an angel and doesn't love him

    A boy who is obsessed with a girl who doesn't even know he exists so he is willing to take his own life along with hers!

    This boy is invisible to the girl that he loves and because of that he hates himself and thinks he isnt worthy even though he wants her to have faith in him
