Christine:
In sleep he sang to me
In dreams he came
That voice which calls to me
And speaks my name
And do I dream again
For now I find
The Phantom of the Opera is there
Inside my mind

Phantom:
Sing once again with me
Our strange duet
My power over you
Grows stronger yet
And though you turn from me
To glance behind
The Phantom of the Opera is there
Inside your mind


Christine:
Those who have seen your face
Draw back in fear
I am the mask you wear


Phantom:
It's me they hear

Both:
My/your spirit and your/my voice
In one combined
The Phantom of the Opera is there
Inside your/my mind

Offstage:
He's there the Phantom of the Opera!

Phantom:
In all your fantasies
You always knew
That man and mystery

Christine:
Were both in you

Both:
And in this labyrinth
Where night is blind
The Phantom of the Opera is there
Inside your/my mind

Christine:
He's there, the Phantom of the Opera!
(Vocalizing)

Phantom:
Sing, my angel of music!

Christine:
(Vocalizing higher)

Phantom:
Sing for me!

Christine:
(Vocalizing higher)

Phantom:
Sing my angel of music!

Christine:
(Sings higher)

Phantom:
SING FOR ME!

Phantom:
I have brought you
To the seat of sweet music's throne
To this kingdom where all must pay homage to music
Music.
You have come here
For one purpose and one alone
Since the moment I first heard you sing
I have needed you with me to serve me
To sing for my music

    This song is explaining that "the angel of music" Christine was talking about earlier in the musical, the one who is giving her vocal lessons, is actually The Phantom of the Opera. It shows us his motives and gives us a better look at his personality. It also shows off Christine's amazing vocal range (D#!). This song has a rock n' roll aspect to it, which is why I think so many people adore it (myself included). I think that Andrew Lloyd Webber made this song more rock n' roll to show the significance of the lyrics, inspire suspense in the audience, "hook" the audience, and give us a break from the stuffy opera house. I love this song, by the way! The first time I saw the musical, it absolutely stunned me. I went to bed humming it. If you haven't seen the musical, watch it!

    I never saw/read/heard the phantom of the opera but i think its like... The hunchback of notre dame. Beautiful girl and the ugly guy and no one likes the guy so he hides but the girl craves mystery and adventure and that's what the phantom has. She isn't scared of him so they get together he does the creepy stalker bit, then she falls for him and she shares his ideas and tells others "my/your spirit and my/your voice,in one combined. "
