Lyrics

Christine: I should have known that you'd be here
I should have known it all along
This whole arrangement bears your stamp
You're in each measure of that song
How dare you try and claim me now?
How dare you come invade my life?

Phantom: Oh, Christine, my Christine
In that time when the world thought me dead
My Christine, on that night just before you were wed
Ah, Christine, you came and found where I hid
Don't you deny that you did
That long ago night

Christine: That night...

Phantom: Once there was a night
Beneath a moonless sky
Too dark to see a thing,
Too dark to even try

Christine: I stole to your side
To tell you I must go
I couldn't see your face
But sensed you even so
And I touched you
Phantom: And I felt you
Both: And I heard those ravishing refrains
Christine: The music of your pulse
Phantom: The singing in your veins

Christine: And I held you
Phantom: And I touched you
Christine: And embraced you
Phantom: And I felt you
Both: And with every breath and every sigh

Christine: I felt no longer scared
Phantom: I felt no longer shy
Both: At last our feelings bared
Beneath a moonless sky

Christine: And blind in the dark,
As soul gazed into soul
I looked into your heart
And saw you pure and whole

Phantom: Cloaked under the night
With nothing to suppress
A woman and a man,
No more and yet no less
And I kissed you

Christine: And caressed you
Both: And the world around us fell away
We said things in the dark
We never dared to say

Phantom: And I caught you
Christine: And I kissed you
Phantom: And I took you
Christine: And caressed you
Both: With a need too urgent to deny

And nothing mattered then
Except for you and I
Again and then again
Beneath a moonless sky

Phantom: And when it was done
Before the sun could rise
Ashamed of what I was,
Afraid to see your eyes
I stood while you slept

And whispered a goodbye
And slipped into the dark
Beneath a moonless sky
Christine: And I loved you
Yes, I loved you
I'd have followed anywhere you led
I woke to swear my love
And found you gone instead
Phantom: And I loved you(How I loved you)
And I left you(how I loved you)
And I had to, both of us knew why (We both knew why)
Both: And yet I won't regret
From now until I die
The night I can't forget
Beneath a moonless sky

Phantom: And now?
Christine: How can you talk of now?
For us, there is no now
