You were once
My one companion...
You were all
That mattered...
You were once
A friend and father -
Then my world
Was shattered...

Wishing you were
Somehow here again...
Wishing you were
Somehow near...
Sometimes it seemed
If I just dreamed,
Somehow you would
Be here...

Wishing I could
Hear your voice again...
Knowing that I
Never would...
Dreaming of you
Won't help me to do
All that you dreamed
I could...

Passing bells
And sculpted angels,
Cold and monumental,
Seem, for you,
The wrong companions -
You were warm and gentle...

Too many years
Fighting back tears...
Why can't the past
Just die
... ?

Wishing you were
Somehow here again...
Knowing we must
Say goodbye...
Try to forgive...
Teach me to live...
Give me the strength
To try...

No more memories,
No more silent tears...
No more gazing across
The wasted years...
Help me say

    I think here again means that even though a loed one is dead, they are still in your heart. Never forget the person you love most but also dont dwell on ot to ruin your life.

    In the beginning, i thought that this was a song that showed how depressed christine was still about her dead father. But, upon closer examination i found that this song is about the phantom and how much christine wants a life with raoul but she just can not leave the phantom. It also suggest that christine does not see the phantom as the ugly, ghostly creature that the other characters do. She see's the phantom's warmth and love. That is just my opinion though. Sorry about grammar errors.
