Phantom:
Wandering child,
So lost, so helpless
Yearning for my guidance

Christine:
Angel or father?
Friend or phantom?
Who is it there, staring?

Phantom:
Have you forgotten your Angel?

Christine:
Angel, oh, speak
What endless longings
Echo in this whisper!

Phantom:
Too long you've wandered in winter
Far from my fathering gaze...

Christine:
Wildly my mind beats against you...

Phantom:
You resist....

Phantom/Christine:
Yet your/the soul obeys...

Phantom/Christine:
Angel of Music,
You/I denied me/you!
Turning from true beauty!
Angel of Music!
Do not shun me/My protecter!
Come to your/me strange Angel...

Phantom:
I am your Angel of Music...
Come to me; Angel of Music....

Raoul[spoken]:
No, Christine, wait!
Wait!

Christine[spoken]:
Raoul!

Raoul[spoken]:
Whatever you may(Draws sword) believe,
This man - this thing - is not your father!

(The Phantom Jumps out and swings his sword. Raoul and Erik the Phantom sword fight. Erik the Phantom stabs Raoul in the arm. Raoul happens to pin Erik the Phantom down. Before Raoul can stab him, Christine stops him)

Christine: No, Raoul! No. Not like this.

(They look at Erik the Phantom for a minute. Raoul puts away his sword, they get on his horse and ride off)

Phantom(Spoken, angrily) Now, let it be war upon you both.

    Doesn't everyone realize that the phantom is using christine's love for her father, her easily gained trust to reach for his own gains? I mean, the phantom is allowed to earn christine's heart, but his obsession is going so far as to use the person most precious to her as a tool. Raoul was only trying to save her from this lonely, but murderous stalker...

    Beauty, yet being manipulated. It's cruel but yet, the voice of her angel is so beautiful, she can almost never resist her angel of music.

    Gerard butler might not have been a singer, but boy, does he blow everyone away in this scene! I think this song is just another incident where the phantom tries to earn christine's heart, but as always, raoul has to butt in and ruin it. :
