[Both]; denotes Christine and Raoul.
(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

(Christine)
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

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

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

[Raoul]
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

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

[Both]
Share each day with me each night, each morning,

[Christine]
Say you love me

[Raoul]
You know I do

[Both]
Love me, that's all I ask of you

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

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

[Phantom]
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...

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

    All art has different interpretations. That's what makes it so intriguing to me. I have come to believe today that "All I ask of You" is a Love Song to me from God. Alot of people are afraid of the darkness. Many people have demons. I am no different than anyone else. However, the relationship I have with God is unique to us. His is a love like Raoul's, but God's Love for me IS Perfect. I, like Christine, Will Follow Him. Beautiful in a Song. Thanks!

    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!

    Promises and love, casual and white. That what raoul and christine like to have, and they shall have it in the end. Although the phantom has struggled over those years to show christine, she just can't accept his love. His is just too dark or too odd for her, and sometimes blurred with his ambition of her singing carreer. Christine's doubt in his love has really bleed the phantom's hearts quite deeply.

    This song probably has a million meanings, so trying to think of just one is a little hard, but if you go back to the root of where this came from, you see that less a proposal or such, it's a pure offering of love, one that is unselfish, takes nothing, and wants only to offer happiness and peace to a tormented lost soul you love. In fact, so beautiful is this love, that wether or not the love is given back in return, it promises to protect and save the other no matter what. And really, I don't just think, I know that is what this song tries to capture, and truly I think it does!

    Well to me this means that raoul and christine are confessing there love for each other. But. I am a phan of the phantom (i did not make a mistake in fan).
    So. I disagree with her going with raoul. Because, I love the phantom. He showed her so much love. He never knew how to love another person. Showing that he would go so far for christine. I think it's beautiful.
    - erik angel forever.
