Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Passarino - go away!
For the trap is set and waits for
Its prey!
Verse 2
You have come here
In pursuit of
Your deepest urge,
In pursuit of
That wish,
Which till now
Has been silent,
Silent...
Verse 3
I have brought you,
That our passions
May fuse and merge -
In your mind
You've already
Succumbed to me,
Dropped all defences,
Completely succumbed to me -
Now you are here with me:
No second thoughts,
You've decided,
Decided...
Verse 4
Past the point
Of no return -
No backward glances:
The games we've played
Till now are at
An end...
Past all thought
Of "if" or "when" -
No use resisting:
Abandon thought
And let the dream
Descend...
Verse 5
What raging fire
Shall flood the soul?
Which rich desire
Unlocks its door?
What sweet seduction
Lies before
Us...?
Verse 6
Past the point
Of no return,
The final threshold -
What warm,
Unspoken secrets
Will we learn?
Beyond the point
Of no return...
Verse 7
CHRISTINE
You have brought me
To that moment
Where words run dry,
To that moment
Where speech
Disappears
Into silence,
Silence...
Verse 8
I have come here,
Hardly knowing
The reason why...
In my mind,
I've already
Imagined our
Bodies entwining,
Defenceless and silent -
And now I am
Here with you:
No second thoughts,
Verse 9
I've decided,
Decided...
Verse 10
Past the point
Of no return -
No going back now:
Our passion-play
Has now, at last
Begun...
Past all thought
Of right or wrong -
One final question:
How long should we
Two wait, before
We're one...?
Verse 11
When will the blood
Begin to race,
The sleeping bud
Burst into bloom?
When will the flames,
At last consume
Us...?
Verse 12
BOTH
Past the point
Of no return,
The final threshold -
The bridge
Is crossed, so stand
And watch it burn...
We've passed the point
Of no return...
Verse 13
PHANTOM
Say you'll share with
Me one
Love, one lifetime...
Lead me, save me
From my solitude...
Verse 14
Say you want me
With you,
Here beside you...
Anywhere you go
Let me go too -
Christine,
That's all I ask of...
Verse 15
CARLOTTA
(spoken)
What is it? What has happened? Ubaldo!
Verse 16
ANDRÉ
(spoken)
Oh, my God...my God...
Verse 17
FIRMIN
(spoken)
We're ruined, André - ruined!
Verse 18
GIRY
(spoken)
Monsieur le Vicomte! Come with me!
Verse 19
CARLOTTA
(spoken)
Oh my darling, my darling...who has
Done this...?
Verse 20
You! Why did you let this happen?
Verse 21
GIRY
(spoken)
Monsieur le Vicomte, I know where they
Are.
Verse 22
RAOUL
(spoken)
But can I trust you?
Verse 23
GIRY
(spoken)
You must. But remember: your hand at
The level of your eyes!
Verse 24
RAOUL
(spoken)
But why...?
Verse 25
GIRY
(spoken)
Why? The Punjab lasso, monsieur. First
Buquet. Now Piangi.
Verse 26
MEG
(spoken)
Like this, monsieur. I'll come with you.
Verse 27
GIRY
(spoken)
No, Meg! No, you stay here!
Verse 28
Come with me, monsieur. Hurry, or we
Shall be too late
