[Both]; denotes Christine and Raoul.

No more talk of darkness
Forget these wide-eyed fears

I'm here nothing, can harm you
My words will warm and calm you

Let me be your freedom
Let daylight dry your tears
I'm here with you, beside you,
To guard you and to guide you

Say you'll love me every waking moment
Turn my head with talk of summer time
Say you need me with you now and always
Promise me that all you say is true
That's all I ask of you

Let me be your shelter
Let me be your light
You're safe no, one will find you
Your fears are far behind you

All I want is freedom
A world with no more night
And you, always beside me
To hold me and to hide me

Then say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime
Let me lead you from your solitude
Say you need me with you here, beside you
Anywhere you go let, me go too
Christine, that's all I ask of you

Say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime
Say the word and I will follow you

Share each day with me each night, each morning,

Say you love me

You know I do

Love me, that's all I ask of you

(They kiss. Raoul. lifts Christine off her feet into, his arms and holds her)

Anywhere you go let, me go too
Love me that's, all I ask of you

I gave you my music, made your song take wing.
And now, how you've repaid me, denied me, and betrayed me.
He was bound to love you when, he heard you sing
(Sobs)Christine, Christine.

[Raoul & Christine]
Say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime
Say the word and I will follow you
Share each day with me, each night, each morning...

You will curse the day you did not do
All that the Phantom asked of you!

    I love this song! Well, I would wish my boyfriend would sing it to me! He is also a great fan of Phantom of the Opera! I love how the feelings of this song is effectively channeled through the lyrics and their emotions and facial expressions. They really deeply love each other. However, it is a messed up love triangle but that's what makes it romantic. The Phantom loves Christine but has a weird way of showing it! Christine then chooses the security and love of Raoul's! I would so love to perform Christine in the Phantom of the Opera!

    Two very dysfunctional people in a codependent relationship. Seriously, does the "love me every waking moment" and "let me follow you around wherever you go" seem a little uncomfortable to you? They're both somewhat traumatized by the phantom incident, and clinging to each other while making absurd promises and requests that they both know they can't fulfill.

    The meaning of this song is basically that the Raoul is telling Christine that he loves her and for her to love him back. Meanwhile lurking in the distance the Phantom says the same thing only his situation is about his music and her being his student. It is sort of a messed up love triangle!

    Oh how I wish I could play Raoul in phantom it's one of my biggest dreams I absolutely love this song and dedicated to the girl I have a massive crush on and think of as my angel of music Amanda may bishop how I wish you could see how much I love you, you are my life and I wish you were my girl but it would never happen as you would never date someone as ugly as me but I just want to say I love you so much and just wish I could ask you out but I don't have the courage so next time you see me I'm gonna say so you know.

    Lots of love.
