RAOUL:
no more talk of darkness
forget these wild eyed fears
I’m here
nothing can harm you
my words will warm and calm you
let me be your freedom
let daylight dry your tears
I’m here
with you beside you
to guard you and to guide you

CHRISTINE:
say you’ll love me every waking moment
top my head with talk of summertime
say you’ll need in me your love and always
promise me all you say is true
that’s all I ask of you

RAOUL:
let me be your shelter
let me be your light
your safe
no one can find you
your fears are far behind you

CHRISTINE:
all I want is freedom
a world with no more night
and you always beside me to hold me and to hide me

RAOUL:
then say you’ll share with me one love, one lifetime
let me leave you from your solitude
say you’ll need me
with me beside you
anywhere you go
let me go too
Christine, that’s all I ask of you

CHRISTINE:
say you’ll share with me
one love, one lifetime
say the word and I will follow you
share each day with me
each night each morning
say you’ll love me

RAOUL:
you know I do.

BOTH:
love me
that’s all I ask of you.

(they kiss)

BOTH:
anywhere you go
let me go too
love me
that’s all I ask of you.

PHANTOM:
I gave you my music
made your song take wing
and now- how you repay me
denied me and betrayed me
he was bound to love you
when he heard you sing

Christine...Christine...

RAOUL AND CHRISTINE, OFFSTAGE:
say you’ll share with me
one love, one lifetime
say the word and I will follow you
share each daylight
each night each morning

PHANTOM:
you will curse the day you dared not do
all that the phantom asked of you!

    General CommentWell um someone I know saw it on stage and said it's way better on the movie. It's hard to see what's going on on a stage. Plus, Gerard Butler is hott.

    General CommentI love this song, it's so beautiful. Andrew Lloyd Webber is an awesome composer and thisis one of his best songs. Mmmm...Gerald Butler...:)-Hayley

    General Commentthere are a few errors here that ive noticed

    top my head with talk of summertime
    say you’ll need in me your love and always

    this should say:

    turn my head with talk of summertime
    say you need me with you now and always

    amazing song btw, both the play and movie

    General CommentThe movie doesnt suck- i saw it live as well and have a friend who actually studies the work of Andrew Lloyd Webber and admits the movie was pretty close.

    Anyway, I want this song played at my wedding. Its so beautiful.

    And btw, its 'turn my head with talk of summertime', not 'top my head'. that makes no sense
