Phantom Of The Opera – We Have All Been Blind lyrics

We have all been blind
And yet the answer is staring us in the face
This could be the chance
To ensnare our clever friend

We're listening...

Go on.

We shall play his game
Perform his work, but remember we hold the ace
For if Miss Daae sings
He is certain to attend

We are certain the doors are barred

We are certain the police are there

We are certain they're armed

The curtain falls
His reign will end!

Raoul, I'm frightened...
Don't make me do this
It scares me,
Don't put me through this ordeal by fire.
He'll take me, I know
We'll be parted forever...
He won't let me go.

What I once used to dream, I now dread.
If he finds me, it won't ever end.

[sung]And he'll always be there,
Singing songs in my head...
He'll always be there,
Singing songs in my head...

You said yourself,
He was nothing but a man...
Yet while he lives,
He will haunt us 'til we're dead.

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

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

Seal my fate tonight
I hate to have to cut the fun short
But the joke's wearing thin
Let the audience in
Let my opera begin!

    This one is actually harder to examplain. Ok they plan on making Christine sing so they can lure the phantom to come out and then the police can catch him. Then Christine gets sooo sad because she assumes (and assumes right) that the phantom wll take her back to his lair. But this is were she is wrong, she also thinks he will keep her there forever thus keeping her away from Raoul(Well duh that was his main purpose of the swordfight! See wandering child lyrics.). P. S. I actually like this scene for some crazy reason! Especially the end of it when he sings!
