The Phantom of the Opera; an early and enduring favorite musical of Mat and Savanna Shaw. Check out their YouTube channel where “Just a place for a dad and his daughter to share their music.”
No more talk of darkness
Forget these wide-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
Say you love me every waking moment
Turn my head with talk of summertime
Say you need me with you now and always
Promise me that all you say is true
That’s all I ask of you
Let me be your shelter
Let me be your light
You’re safe, no one will find you
Your fears are far behind you
All I want is freedom
A world with no more night
And you, always beside me
To hold me and to hide me
Then say you’ll share with me one love, one lifetime
Let me lead you from your solitude
Say you need me with you, here beside you
Anywhere you go, let me go too
Christine, that’s all I ask of you
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 love me!
You know I do
Anywhere you go, let me go to
Love me, that’s all I ask of you
I must go
They’ll wonder where I am
Wait for me raoul!
Christine I love you!
Order your fine horses!
Be with them at the door!
And soon you’ll be beside me!
You’ll guard me and you’ll guide me
(They hurry off and the phantom emerges from behind the statue)
I gave you my music
Made your song take wing
And now how you’ve repaid me
Denied me and betrayed me
He was bound to love you when he heard you sing
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
You will curse the day you did not do
All that the phantom asked of you!
