Lyrics

In sleep he sang to me, in dreams he came
That voice which calls to me and speaks my name
And do I dream again? For now I find
The Phantom of the Opera is there
Inside my mind

Sing once again with me our strange duet
My power over you grows stronger yet
And though you turn from me to glance behind
The Phantom of the Opera is there
Inside your mind

Those who have seen your face
Draw back in fear
I am the mask you wear

It's me they hear...

Your/My spirit and my/your voice
In one combined
The Phantom of the Opera is there
Inside my/your mind

(Beware, the Phantom of the Opera)

In all your fantasies, you always knew
That man and mystery

Were both in you

And in this labyrinth, where night is blind
The Phantom of the Opera is here/there

Inside my/your mind...

Sing, my Angel of Music!

He's there, the Phantom of the Opera...

Sing!
Sing for me
Sing, my Angel of Music!
Sing for me!

Beneath the opera house
I know he's there.
He's with me on the stage,
He's everywhere.
And when my song begins,
I always find
The phantom of the opera is there
Inside my mind.

Sing once again with me
Our strange duet.
My power over you
Grows stronger yet.
You'll give your love to me
For love is blind.
The phantom of the opera is now
Your mastermind.

Those who have seen your face
Draw back in fear;
I am the mask you wear,

It's me they hear.

Your/My spirit and my/your voice
In one combined
The phantom of the opera is there
Inside my/your mind

(The phantom of the opera
Is there
The phantom of the opera)

Sing once again with me
Our strange duet.
My power over you
Grows stronger yet.

I'll/You'll give my/your love to you/me
For love is blind.
The phantom of the opera is now
My/Your mastermind.

Sing, my angel of music ...

He's there,
The phantom of the opera.

Sing ...
Once again with me, our strange duet.
My power over you grows stronger and stronger.
Sing ...
My angel of music/
Sing!
Sing our strange duet -
Sing!

[The phantom of the opera
Is now your mastermind;
I am here, inside your mind!
I am everywhere!
You're in my power.
Sing!
Sing, my angel of music!
Sing! Sing!]
