Ive been looking so long for you
Now you wont get away from my grasp.
Youve been living so long in hiding
In hiding behind that false mask.
And you know and I know that
You aint got long now to last.
Your looks and your feelings
Are just the remains of your past.
Youre standing in the wings,
There you wait for the curtain to fall.
Knowing the terror and holding
You have on us all.
Yeah, I know that youre gonna
Scratch me, maim me and maul.
You know Im helpless from
Your mesmerising cat call.
Keep your distance, walk away,
Dont take his bait.
Dont you stray, dont fade away.
Watch your step, hes out to get you,
Come what may.
Dont you stray, from the narrow way.
Im running and hiding in my
Dreams youre always there.
Youre the phantom of the opera,
Youre the devil, youre just out to scare.
You damaged my mind
And my soul it just floats through the air.
Haunt me, you taunt me,
You torture me back at your lair.
