CHRISTINE:

Twisted every way,
What answer can I give?
Am I to risk my life,
To win the chance to live?
Can I betray the man
Who once inspired my voice?
Do I become his prey?
Do I have any choice?
He kills without a thought,
He murders all that's good . . .
I know I can't refuse
And yet, I wish I could . . .
Oh God - if I agree,
What horrors wait for me
In this, the Phantom's opera . . .?

RAOUL:

Christine, Christine,
Don't think that I don't care -
But every hope
And every prayer
Rests on you now . . .

    I love this scene. I think christine is feeling conflicted between raoul and erik, and she also doesn't want to risk her life in the first place. Raoul, meanwhile, is being extremely unhelpful and saying "i still love you and all, but the fate of the opera is on you now. "
