[Christine]
I remember there was mist...
Swirling mist upon a vast glassy lake
There were candles all around, and on the lake there was a boat
And in the boat there was a man

Who was that shape in the shadows?
Whose is the face in the mask?

[She removes his mask. Phantom covers his face]

[Phantom]
...Damn you
You little prying Pandora
You little demon
Is this what you wanted to see?
Curse you, you little lying Delilah
You little viper
Now you cannot ever be free
Damn you, curse you...

Stranger than you dreamt it
Can you even dare to look, or bear to think of me
This loathesome gargoyle
Who burns in hell, But secretly yearns for heaven
Secretly, secretly...
Oh Christine...

Fear can turn to love
You'll learn to see, to find the man behind the monster
This repulsive carcass
Who seems a beast but secretly dreams of beauty,
Secretly, secretly...
Oh, Christine...

(Christine hands the Phantom his mask)

[Phantom, speaking]
Come, we must return, those two fools who run my theatre will be missing you.

    ONCE again plz see the movie It rocks. This song is basicaly when she wakes up from that little boat trip to his secret lair and then she just wants to know who he is cause he wears the mask to cover his face. Then he completly spazes and then hides his face until she gives him the mask back. P.S. He gets very sensitive over his mask.
