PHANTOM'S VOICE: Brava, brava, bravissima . . .

Christine, Christine...
(Phantom: Christine...)

Where in the world
Have you been hiding?
Really, you were perfect!

I only wish
I knew your secret!
Who is your great tutor?

Father once spoke of an angel
I used to dream he'd appear
Now as I sing, I can sense him
And I know he's here

Here in this room
He calls me softly
Somewhere inside hiding

Somehow I know
He's always with me
He - the unseen genius

Christine, you must have been dreaming, stories like this can't come true

Christine, you're talking in riddles, and it's not like you!

Angel of Music!
Guide and guardian!
Grant to me your glory!

MEG(to herself):
Who is this angel? This...

Angel of Music!
Hide no longer!
Secret and strange angel

He's with me, even now...

Your hands are cold...

All around me...

Your face, Christine, it's white...

It frightens me...

Don't be frightened...

    the phantom of the Opera is about male being torched in his childhood and finding a home in the opera house. EH trains a younger girl named Christine. Her father had said before he died she would see a angel of music. This song is about her singing about who she thinks the phantom of the opera. She thinks he is the angel of music her father talked about. It also is when Meg comes in, it is a bueatiful written song that was towards the begginning of the movie. I like this song a lot. I am not the best singer but I find it slightly easy to sing since their is not many high notes. By the way in advance sorry for my bad english. I just wanted to let people know it does not represent evil or the devil. It represents inner beauty and a mans ralationship with a girl who can never be with him. He didnt know what love was but he was more of a father figure to Christine. Thats what i think excuse me if you think something diffrent but that at the moment is my view of things. I do like this song alot though.

    I am so touched by this song. It reminds me that people often hide in the shadows and love you silently. It is a gorgeous premise and the fact is, it is probably the most famous melody of the phantom of the opera (besides music of the night). I only hope that one day my angel will appear.

    This is a beautiful song its so... Enchanting. This melody is used throughout the movie alot, but that’s okay because this melody is so beautifully written it can be used over, and over again, without getting old. This is my favorite movie in the whole world! This is one of my favorite parts in the whole movie, because i love megs voice! Just as much as i love christine’s! The only thing wrong with this movie is that, i think they should've given meg more singing parts in the movie. Sorry this is the real one. The other one had mistakes.
