PHANTOM: Passarino - Go away for the trap it is set and waits for it's prey.

You have come here
In pursuit of your deepest urge
In pursuit of that wish which till now
Has been silent
Silent.

I have brought you
That our passions may fuse and merge
In your mind you've already succumbed to me, dropped all defenses
Completely succumbed to me
Now you are here with me
No second thoughts
You've decided
Decided.

Past the point of no return
No backward glances
Our games of make-believe are at an end.

Past all thought of “if” or “when”
No use resisting
Abandon thought and let the dream descend

What raging FIRE shall flood the soul
What rich desire unlocks it's door
What sweet seduction lies before us?

Past the point of no return
The final threshold
What warm unspoken secrets
Will we learn
Beyond the point of no return?

CHRISTINE: You have brought me
To that moment when words run dry
To that moment when speech disappears
Into silence
Silence.

I have come here,
Hardly knowing the reason why
In my mind I've already imagined
Our bodies entwining
Defenseless and silent,
Now I am here with you
No second thoughts
I've decided
Decided.

Past the point of no return
No going back now
Our passion-play has now at last begun.

Past all thought of right or wrong
One final question
How long should we two wait before we're one?

When will the blood begin to race
The sleeping bud burst into bloom
When will the flames at last CONSUME us?

BOTH: Past the point of no return
The final threshold
The bridge is crossed
So stand and watch it burn
We've passed the point of no return.


PHANTOM:(soft and sort of saddened) Say you'll share with me
One love, one lifetime
Lead me, save me from my solitude

Say you want me
With you here
Beside you
Anywhere you go
Let me go too
Christine that's all I ask of…
(Christine tears the mask, showing his face to the audience)

PHANTOM:(looks at her sadly, then pushes one lever that causes the chandaleir to fall and the other lever with foot and they fall through a trap door!)

    Phantom acknowledges that until now he was allowing this all to be a game of fantasy, a secret, not real. But now, the feelings are real because he has allowed himself to believe what he knows is in her heart. He/it cannot abide falsehoods. Truth and love need to conquer all. Christine acknowledges all of this, but without the advantage of pre-thought, is left with the shock of a brutal choice. She is in the light, and thus is "saved" by it. At the same time, phantom's unmasking is her first view of him "in the light" (or as he really is), and she sees the side of him he couldn't hide, his soul.

    The meaning is passion and desire and just wanting each other. And when they finally take that step there is no going back

    I think some people may forget that phantom wrote this. Meaning it was more his idea of her, then hers of him. In the musical (stage version) she truly doesn't know it's him until she says "consume us". That's when she touches his mask under the hood he's wearing. She tires to get away, but she does finish singing with him. She was frightened of him. When he starts singing "all i ask of you" i think both their hearts break. I believe she took his mask off because she knew he would run that way. Otherwise she knew he was ready to give himself over to anyone just to have that moment of her in his arms. She loved him too much to let that happen to him.

    This is so sad... He loves her so much, but there's no way to get her back. Chris 's so confused, not like phantom, she's a normal woman with normal deisres of the normal life, marriage with a normal guy, happy ever after, in the stunnyng snugy home. She feels the passion from phantom, and she does respect phantom as once her father, friend, support and teacher, she doesnt want to break his heart, and she still want phantom always be there for her. however, the second part of phantom, the love never die,has totally changed Chris from a innocent girl to a somehow mindless fool... Poor Phantom...

    Its about christine confessing her love for the phantom without knowing it. The phantom wrote this play specifically for her to say those things because that is what he wants to hear from her.
